Hello! Like every film aficionado, I have always wanted to make a list of my favorite films ever! Now, I have finally made my definitive best lists in three major categories: superhero, animated, and of all time. You may not see your own favorite movies, or even some that are considered the best. They are not on these lists because I either have not seen them yet or were not impressed as much as everyone else. Films of the former include movies like Citizen Kane, The Sound of Music, and Schindler’s List, while those of the latter include The Shawshank Redemption, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Blade Runner. When it comes to superhero and animated films, there are hardly any that most people consider the best that I haven’t seen. Here we go!

2. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

A quick note, I counted the original theatrical cut of the original Star Wars for this list. I did not list it and Empire as Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back because I discount the prequels entirely. I don’t care if they say Episode IV, V, VI, VII and so on in the opening crawls or on the covers of the blu rays. The prequels are so bad, they do not need to be officially acknowledged in my book.

Thanks for reading my lists! Did you agree with any of my picks? Did you disagree? You can let me know on FaceBook or Twitter because you probably can’t leave a comment on this post, unless of course, you have an account here. If necessary, I will update these lists at the beginning of every year.
