A list of the most disturbing movies that, for whatever reason, you never, ever want to watch again. This list is full of great movies that you would never re-watch. These disturbing films hit their mark: they affected you, you connected with the characters or the themes... They are great films, but you got it the first time and would be just fine to never be reminded of what you just watched. These are some of the creepiest movies, scariest, and saddest films that were ever made.

Each of these films contains at least one heartbreaking or gory scene or truly creepy character that will always be with you, even if you never voluntarily watch any of these disturbing movies again. Whether the movie vividly depicts addiction, like Leaving Las Vegas; drug use, like Requiem for a Dream; rape, like Irreversible; violence, like Nil By Mouth and Salo - or it just makes you feel dirty watching it, like Kids... These are all highly acclaimed, disturbing movies that you will try to forget about as soon as you have watched them. Some of the films on this list are depictions of true-life, heartbreaking events, like United 93, or ill-fated love stories, like Brokeback Mountain. These really good, sad movies are on this list because they can still make you cry just thinking about them. 

Vote on this list of the most disturbing movies of all time and add any movie you never want to watch again if it is not on the list.

<![CDATA[The Best Alien Movies Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/all-alien-movies-or-list-of-alien-movies
The best alien movies, ranked by fans of space and sci-fi genres. Alien movies can take several forms. What are the best alien movies? Many films about extraterrestrials, alien abductions, or visitors from other planets turn them into traditional horror villains. These "alien war" movies tend to follow a simple pattern: 1) UFOs arrive on Earth, 2) a misunderstanding or outright evil intent sparks a war between aliens and humanity, 3) with massively destructive and terrifying results. If you find you want more ideas then check out the best action movies on Netflix, best movies on Netflix instant and our list of scary movies on Netflix

Whether the movies are funny, scary, or totally crazy, there are plenty of parallels to be found between them. Consider the similarities of the recent Battle: LA, Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds, and even Tim Burton's genre parody, Mars Attacks. However, there are also films in which aliens are not an interstellar threat but a boon to humanity, or at least well-intentioned explorers. E.T. is the classic example of the "friendly alien" genre – and the xenomorphs in the Alien franchise stay in outer space, so that's good for humans, too. E.T. is also one of the best alien kids movies ever made.

What are the best alien films of all time? Often in these films, the aliens are tragically misunderstood, and it's the primal nature of human beings that spark conflict. Finally, there are numerous films about aliens which attempt to "realistically" depict what might happen if humans and extraterrestrials interacted. These include Close Encounters of the Third Kind (another Spielberg film!), District 9, and even abduction films purportedly based on "true stories," such as Fire in the Sky.

While this list does not include all alien movies ever made, it is a list of the best alien films. What do you think are the greatest alien movies of all time? Vote up the good alien movies you'd watch over and over, and down-vote the ones that aren't worth your time.




Close Encounters of the Third Kind

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Independence Day

<![CDATA[The Best Star Trek Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-star-trek-movies
This is a list of all 'Star Trek' movies, ranked best to worst by fans, casual critics and people like you. This votable list includes every 'Star Trek' film to date. Certainly, several 'Star Trek' films could be considered among the best space movies. Which one is the greatest ever made? That's decided by voters, so be sure to cast your vote up or down for each film listed. Trekkies, this one's for you. Also: You can re-rank this list of great 'Star Trek' films in any order you want.

Generally speaking, many 'Star Trek' fans consider 1982's 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan' to be one of the best, if not *the* greatest 'Star Trek' movie ever made. It's hard to deny that this film isn't awesome, with battles between the crew of the starship 'Enterprise' and the evil Khan Noonien Singh.

In recent years, the 'Star Trek' movie franchise has enjoyed a revival, thanks in large part to J.J. Abrams' 2009 movie 'Star Trek' and 2013's 'Star Trek Into Darkness.' Where should these modern era 'Star Trek' movies fall in comparison to the classics? Are they also among the greatest sci-fi movies of all time? History will ultimately decide, but for now, you can - by voting!

Star Trek: First Contact

Star Trek Generations

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home

<![CDATA[Easter Eggs You Didn't Notice in Quentin Tarantino Films]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/quentin-tarantino-easter-eggs/zacharyjamesniblick

We’re all familiar with the ludicrously interconnected universe of Quentin Tarantino. If you’re not, then read up, because today we’re not scouring through theories about Vincent Vega’s brother’s uncle or just what the hell was in that briefcase, we’re taking a look at some of the coolest and most obscure Tarantino film Easter eggs, secrets, references, plot continuities, and bits of trivia we could find.

From hinting at character betrayals with soap bottle placement in Reservoir Dogs to sneaking the audience an explicit message on the bottom of The Bride’s Pumas in Kill Bill, Tarantino has clearly mastered the art of subtlety and doesn’t even come close to stopping there. Quentin built his entire career on knowing movies better than most any other filmmaker in Hollywood, and the references and homages are abundant in his films if you know what you’re looking for. Even Django Unchained itself was a blatant homage to the original ‘60s western Django - and that one’s just right there in the name.

Without further adieu, here’s our list of the best Easter eggs from Tarantino films. Make sure you cast your vote for your favorite hidden gems and Easter eggs on the list, and let's get to the bottom of that briefcase business in the comments section!


Tarantino's Opinion on Top Gun
In the 1994 movie Sleep with Me, Tarantino himself makes a cameo. He can be seen spouting off on a theory about Top Gun's hidden homosexual connotation.
The Bride's Shoes Are NSFW
In Kill Bill, the words "F*ck U" can be seen on the bottom of Uma Thurman's shoes just before her fight with O-Ren Ishii. 
Nick Fury's Headstone Is a Reference to Pulp Fiction
When Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, "dies" in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, his headstone reads: "The path of the righteous man: Ezekiel 25:17." This is a direct reference to Jackson's famous "Ezekiel 25:17" speech from Pulp Fiction.

Red Apple Cigarettes Pop Up in Almost Every Movie
Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and a handful of other Tarantino flicks feature a nod to the fake cigarette brand Red Apple Cigarettes.
From One Django to Another
In Django Unchained, Franco Nero, the star of the original Django from the '60s, makes a cameo as the Italian mandingo owner. After the fight, he and Jamie Foxx spark up a brief conversation at the bar. It's two different Djangos from two different eras talking to one another. Aww!

This Lady Who's Always in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
In Reservoir Dogs, Mr. Pink carjacks a random woman by dragging her out of her car into the street. Two years later in Pulp Fiction, the same actress, Linda Kaye, is the woman Marsellus accidentally shoots when aiming for Butch. Tough luck, lady.

Amber Tamblyn Really Was the Daughter of the Son of a Gunfighter
Famous actor Russ Tamblyn makes a brief cameo in Django Unchained, credited as "The Son of a Gunfighter," a nod to his starring role in the 1965 western of the same name. Later in the movie, eagle-eyed viewers will notice Russ's real life daughter, Amber Tamblyn, peering through a window as Django rides into town. Her role in the film's credits? "Daughter of a Son of a Gunfighter."

Black Dynamite Was Almost in Kill Bill: Vol. 2
Michael Jai White, known for his titular role in Black Dynamite, was supposed to make an in-character appearance in Kill Bill: Vol 2. An entire fight scene was filmed, but was inevitably cut from the final film.
Luke Duke Is the US Marshall
Tom Wopat, better known as Luke Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard, makes a cameo as US Marshall Gill Tatom during the saloon scene in Django Unchained.

Uma Thurman, Wu Tang's Newest Member
In Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Bill interrogates The Bride and refers to her as "a natural born killer" and "renegade killer bee." These are nods to RZA and the Wu Tang Clan, who wrote music for the movie.

<![CDATA[The Best Cinderella Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-cinderella-movies/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of the best Cinderella movies, ranked best to worst. These types of movies focus on the famous rags to riches Cinderella story: A diamond in the rough is ultimately discovered and put in her proper place. This theme is used widely to this day with its various topes and allusions permeating Hollywood films. Some of the best Cinderella movies listed here feature wonderful renditions of the tale of one of Disney's best princesses ever. Vote for your favorites and re-rank this list your way, too.

The movies on this list closely follow the Cinderella story. While not all of these movies are for kids, many of them are, and Cinderella is without doubt a favorite fairy tale among young girls. There is a reason Cinderella is often cited as one of Disney's best animated films.

Cinderella is also a favorite fairy tale among adults and older teens, which explains why movies like 'Ever After' and 'Ella Enchanted' are so often included among the great Cinderella films. Disagree? Think that Cinderella is one of the Disney princesses that make terrible role models? Fine, but you cannot deny the timeless story's enduring popularity.
