<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent Film Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//film <![CDATA[The Greatest Talking Animals in TV History]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-talking-animals-in-tv-history/ranker-tv

List of the greatest talking animals in television history, as ranked by television critics, historians, and fans. Throughout the years, television has seen its fair share of speaking animal characters, each with their own personalities as unique as they would be if they were human characters. These characters come in all sorts of species, from a household dog to moose that stands on two legs. Although a vast majority of these characters are animated, there are a few which are live action. The live action talking animals, such as Mister Ed or the storytelling dog Wishbone, are impressive because the show runners needed to use a mix of real, cooperative animals, voice actors, and special effects.

 

While many of the TV talking animal characters on this list speak and act as if they were human beings, a few talk with speech impediments and act very much like animals, such as Scooby Doo. Characters like Brian Griffin from Family Guy act completely like humans in animal suits, while characters like Winnie the Pooh act completely within their animal’s nature.

 

Who are television’s best talking animals? This list features a wide array of animals who talk from generations of television, made by live action and cartoon creators alike.

Whether it makes you laugh harder, think deeper, or reflect more deeply on the realities of our world, these movies are a cut above the rest and are the best films to watch stoned.

These films are known for improving your stoned experience and vice-versa, being stoned will improve these films.

<![CDATA[The Best Action Anime of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-action-anime/ranker-anime
Action anime is hard to define, but if a show has car chases, epic battles and lots of explosions, then it probably fits the genre's description. Here are the best action anime series of all time, ranked by the votes of anime fans like you. We want to hear your opinion about the shows on this poll, so please give any show you've seen and upvote or downvote depending on whether or not you would recommend it to another anime fan. What exactly makes a series an action anime? Shows with emphasis on sword fighting and heroes dueling like Berserk and Fate/Zero are classified as action, but so are shows that are more gun and crime focused, like Psycho Pass and Cowboy Bebop. Perhaps you could say that if the action is the primary vehicle for the show's plot to move forward, than that series could be classified as action anime. We've included the top action anime we could think of, but we're not perfect! Add your favorite show to this list if it's missing, so that other people can vote on it too.

<![CDATA[The Best Books That Were Adapted Into Oscar-Winning Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/books-that-were-adapted-into-oscar-winning-movies/the-wrap
People usually assume that books are better than their film adaptations, but that may not be true for the books on this list. All of these books were turned into movies that went on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, so an argument can be made that the movie adaptations were just as good, or (gasp!) even better than the original source material. Of the 87 movies that have won Academy Awards for Best Picture so far, 40 were based on or inspired by books. Some are faithful book-to-movie adaptions, while others use creative license and are loosely based on books. 

What are the best books that were turned into Oscar-winning movies? Some of the books are award-winners themselves including Gone with the Wind and The English Patient, while tomes like Lord of the Rings and The Godfather are popular novels that have devoted fanbases. From classics like Rebecca and Around the World in Eighty Days to contemporary works like Q &A and The Master of Disguise: My Secret Life in the CIA, the books and the respective films cover a variety of genres. This list includes some of the best books turned into movies that won Oscars in the Best Picture category. Vote up for your favorites!

<![CDATA[The Best Movies Based on Marvel Comics]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movies-based-on-marvel-comics/all-genre-movies-lists
Although Marvel actually released several films before the modern explosion, they were, how you say? Not good. It wasn't until Bryan Singer's X-Men that Hollywood really took notice. Since then, many Marvel movies have gone on to become blockbuster franchises, including films introducing beloved characters from the Marvel pantheon like: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk and Captain America.

In 2012, years of preparation and lead-in films culminated in the release of The Avengers, an epic-scale event film bringing together a number of the company's most iconic heroes, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. The film opened with the highest weekend domestic box office gross of any film in history (not just a Marvel Studios film), earning over $200 million in its first 3 days in theaters.

Here is the list of the best films ever made based on Marvel comics and characters from Marvel Comics. And as Marvel keeps churning out the hits, make sure to vote-up and submit your favorites!

These are the best Marvel Comics movies, voted on by the fans. What do you think is the best Marvel movie?

<![CDATA[Themed Hotel Rooms That Movie Nerds Will Love]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/movie-themed-hotel-rooms/anncasano
Some hotels offer amenities like complimentary breakfast and free wifi in order to get guests into their rooms. Others take advantage of location, or perhaps feature a five-star restaurant. Still others take advantage of diehard fans of the cinema. Movie themed hotels are everywhere. They provide a guest the opportunity to feel like one of their favorite film characters, or sleep in quarters designed to look like a famous movie set. Here are the coolest themed hotel rooms that movie nerds will love.

Themed hotels have been around for a while. It’s a niche of the hospitality business that can cash in on nostalgia and fandom. Some of the themed rooms on this list are from mega-franchises with a built-in fan base that is ready to spend money.

No one can actually be James Bond. However, during a trip to Paris, a guest can revel in kitschy 007 memorabilia, that may even rival the allure of the City of Lights. Fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings do not have to travel all the way to New Zealand to visit the film’s sets (though they can!) - there’s a replica of The Hobbit cabin in Montana.

From luxury rooms made entirely of ice and snow to tiny capsules that don’t even have proper beds, there’s a theme hotel out there for nearly every movie fan. Vote up the themed rooms that you would most like to check into for a night!
http://www.ranker.com/list/movie-themed-hotel-rooms/anncasano,

Feel Like a Student at Hogwarts
Films: Harry Potter franchise

Kids and adults alike fell heavily under the spell of Harry Potter books and films. The Georgian House Hotel is located in the center of London and is within striking distance of several Harry Potter filming locales. The hotel rooms, or Wizard Chambers as they are called, are designed to make their guests feel like students at Hogwarts. The Wizard Chambers look like a castle and feature stained glass windows, four poster beds, stonewalls, gothic arches, and wood burning stoves.

Take a Ride in Elevator Three
Film: Fifty Shades of Grey

The Heathman Hotel
in Portland, OR is the actual hotel where Anastasia and Christian share several romantic escapes in E.L. James's novel Fifty Shades of Grey, which was adapted into a feature film. The hotel lures visitors into their establishment with a complete Fifty Shades of Grey room package, which includes themed drinks and wine the couple sipped on in the film. Guests can also take a ride in the infamous Elevator Three.

A Room Made Entirely from Ice and Snow
Film: TRON: Legacy

Two British sci-fi mega-fans had a vision to build a hotel room suite made entirely of ice and snow that looked like a scene out of the movie TRON: Legacy. The Legacy of the River room at the Ice Hotel in Sweden features the film's futuristic one of a kind style.

The hotel itself is made of 21,500 tons of snow and 900 tons of ice. The room's creators, Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas-Jones, described their vision in an interview with Wired, "The use of lighting and the material finishes in this nightclub scene are very close to ideas we have been discussing for use in the real world, as well as being close to what we could achieve with ice and snow and a little imagination."

Super Agent Suite for 007 Fans
Films: James Bond franchise

Pour your martinis shaken, not stirred, in this 007-inspired Secret Agent Suite in the Hotel Seven, located in Paris, France. Super fans of James Bond can stay in and watch every Bond film ever made on a big screen from the comfort of their own bed. The suite also features a golden gun lamp, waterfall shower, pictures from several Bond films throughout the room, golden toilets, and mirrored ceilings. The Seven is located in the au courant Latin Quarter, within walking distance of several of the city's most popular attractions.

The Real Deal Hobbit House
Films: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings franchises

Did you absolutely love reading The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings books? Were you an even bigger fan of the film adaptations? If you want to see what a real Hobbit House looks like, there's a replica cabin from the Tolkien books located in the forested foothills of the Cabinet Mountains in Montana. The Shire of Montana is not just a hotel room, but a private enchanted guest house with two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and breathtaking views of Cougar Peak and Whitepine Alpaca Ranch.

A Twihard's Delight
Films: Twilight franchise

The Pacific Inn Motel
is located in Forks, WA, one of the main settings of the Twilight movies. Twihards are known to travel to Forks just to check out all the Twilight locales, so crafting a motel designed for the fans made perfect sense. The motel dramatically invites its guests to, "STEP INTO THE WORLD OF TWILIGHT, WE ARE PROVIDING AN EXPERIENCE, NOT JUST A PLACE TO STAY……" From the Twilight hand towels to the framed pictures of Edward, Bella, and Jacob - each room truly is a Twilight experience.

Rest Up in Lord Vader's Quarters
Films: Star Wars franchise

The Hotel Pelirocco
in Brighton, England is a multi-themed boutique hotel. One of their most popular rooms is Lord Vader's Quarters. A "father and son" twin room, it's filled with Star Wars memorabilia, Darth Vader's lightsaber, and Star Wars movies. Visitors can even put on Vader's costume, if they think they can handle a dose of the dark side.

Live It Up Like Jack Sparrow
Films: Pirates of the Caribbean franchise

The Pirates of the Caribbean Penthouse
at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA is a must-stay locale for diehard fans of the adventure films. It all starts with the doorbell that plays, "Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me." Most of the room's artwork and decor are directly inspired by the franchise's movies, including a replica of Jack Sparrow's revolver, pirate figurines, and wall to wall pirate furnishings.

No Threat of an Iceberg Here!
Film: Titanic

The Radisson Hotel
in Valley Forge, PA gives guests the opportunity to board the Titanic without the threat of crashing into a iceberg. Fans of the 1997 epic can opt to stay in the hotel's Titanic suite - the room is designed after Rose's (Kate Winslet) cabin from the movie.

A Below the Surface Getaway
Films: Poseidon, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

The Poseidon Undersea Resort
in Fiji is the first underwater hotel. The design is modeled after the films Poseidon and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Guests of the luxury resort can drive their own Triton submarine, scuba dive, golf, play tennis, eat, drink, or just relax in the marine-focused spa.

The catch is that prospective guests will have to wait to stay at a room in the five-star resort. The hotel was supposed to open in 2009 and 150,000 people have already booked a room. However, the opening has been delayed several times. But there is faith that the resort will open soon.

Just like Nemo says at the end of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, "There is hope for the future. And when the world is ready for a new and better life, all this will someday come to pass, in God's good time."

<![CDATA[The Best Adult Anime of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-adult-anime/ranker-anime
For those of you looking for anime that is a bit more mature, here's our list of the best adult anime of all time. One of the worst stereotypes about anime is that it's just for children, but the shows below prove that to be completely wrong. What makes an anime mature or "adult?" It isn't just the graphic violence, but the themes and ideals that are presented in the show that would likely go over the head of a younger viewer. Take Samurai Champloo, for instance, which addresses topics like homosexulaity and prostitution. Would a young viewer understand the heartwrenching dilema of Jin falling in love with a sex slave? Ghost in the Shell is another great example, where the subject matter revolves around politics and philosophy, both of which will not likely not be understood by someone under the age of 18. What is the best anime for adults to watch? We want you to vote for you favorites on the adult anime list below, but only if you've actually seen the series. Is one of your top mature anime shows missing? Add it to the poll so that others can vote for it also.
