<![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 Best Movies of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-movies-of-all-time
The best movies of all time, ranked by movie experts and film fans alike. What are the greatest movies of all time? This list of the top films ever made was created by taking best movie suggestions from Ranker users and letting them vote to determine which films are the best ever made.

So, what are the best movies of all time? The list includes a wide range of films, from art house European cinema to top action films and blockbusters to established, highly-regarded classics of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The entries span many genres and include some of the greatest movie villains created by the best writers and top film directors in the industry. Included are movies that were recognized in their own time – including a number of Academy Award recipients and even Best Picture selections – as well as cult movies or sleeper hits that took time to find an audience. Shawshank Redemption, for example, was not highly regarded or popular in theaters when it first opened, but has since risen to the top of many best movie lists.

If your favorite movies still aren't included with this group of the best movies of all time, add them by clicking "rerank" below to make your own list. Or just vote for the titles below that are most worthy of the title of the greatest movie ever. Also, check out Ranker's lists of the best movies of 2013 and the greatest actors of all time.

<![CDATA[The Most Confusing Movies Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/most-confusing-movies-ever-made/ranker-film
The most confusing movies ever made are those films which either intentionally or accidentally are hard to follow, complicated and so far out there that they are disorienting to even the most seasoned viewer. That's not to say these movies are bad because of their complicated nature but certainly not for the easily confused.

For those who crave the mental challenge of confusing movies, there are several directors whose style is highlighted by their complicated plot lines, tendency to present films out of chronological order and seemingly devotion to chaos in their movies. The likes of David Lynch ("Mulholland Drive," "Eraserhead," "Inland Empire" and "Lost Highway"), Stanley Kubrick ("2001: A Space Odyssey," "The Shining" and "Eyes Wide Shut") and Christopher Nolan ("Inception" and "Memento") are perhaps the best at making stellar yet highly confusing movies and among the greatest directors in movie history.

Lynch, Kubrick and Nolan undoubtably influenced other great filmmakers who also have a tendency to create movies that make viewers ask what the heck is happening. Charlie Kaufman, who did "Synecdoche, New York," "Adaptation," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Being John Malkovich," and Steven Soderbergh, responsible for great films like "Sex, Lies, and Videotape," among many others, gave their interpretation of how to create confusing and simply WTF movies.

So whether you love the twists and turns in "The Matrix" or think the utter madness of "Primer" is cause to be among the worst movies of all time, vote for the movies you think are the most confusing below! Have a confusing movie in mind that's not listed? Add it! Help us rank the most confusing movies ever made.

<![CDATA[The All-Time Greatest Martial Arts Actors]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-all-time-greatest-martial-arts-actors
This list of the all time greatest martial arts actors (and actresses) is ranked by kung fu fans worldwide. Anyone can vote on the best martial artists here, which means these actors are truly fan favorites. If you see someone missing, you can even add them. Whether they have magical screen presence or just the physical abilities to make your jaw drop, these actors represent the best in kicking ass.

Though the genre of martial arts films is also occasionally known as "kung fu films," the term in fact only refers to a subset of Chinese martial arts, and can also apply to a variety of traditional practices not directly related to self-defense. (Wushu is the more accurate blanket term for Chinese martial arts and fighting techniques.) The performers on this list practice a variety of martial arts traditions and styles, including the "Jeet Kun Do" techniques innovated by list member Bruce Lee, the Muay Thai style of Tony Jaa or the traditional karate employed by Jean-Claude Van Damme.

Who are the best martial arts actors of all time? These performers also represent a variety of nationalities, including Chinese, Japanese, Thai and American actors.

<![CDATA[The All-Time Greatest Action Stars]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-action-stars
Who are the all-time greatest action stars? This list includes some of the biggest names in movie history, and each actor or actress listed here is fully capable of kicking butt and taking names in any movie they're in. Action stars are a special breed. They combine great acting ability with physicality that brings an action film to life. Be sure to vote for your favorite action stars and vote down any you don't like. Also, feel free to add any great action movie stars who are missing from the list.

What makes an action star the best? It's someone who commands the screen with feats of strength and prowess, adding to the already amped-up feeling of an action film. Many people listed here starred in some of the greatest action movies of all time. Some are newcomers, having landed major roles in recent films, including the best action movies of 2012, for example.

Not all of the all-time greatest action stars are men, no no. Some of the sexiest women in action movies are included here. Among them: Sigourney Weaver, aka Ripley in 'Alien.' She defintiely qualifies. Angelina Jolie and Milla Jovovich are other good examples.

Enjoy voting for the best action stars, and remember: You can, and should, add anyone who deserves a spot and isn't already listed here!

<![CDATA[The Best Actors in Film History]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-actors
The best actors ever are ranked here in this list of the best actors in film history. These are the greatest actors ever to appear on the silver screen - male only (to vote on both genders, check out this list of the greatest film actors and actresses). These gentlemen were part of some of the greatest movies of all time (or were perhaps the reason they were the best movies ever), with countless Academy Awards between them.

What are the qualities of the best actors of all time? Is it the raw emotion they show, the parts they choose, their acting methods, or simply their effortless charm and charisma? There's no denying some of these amazing actors belong on the list of the hottest male celebrities, but behind the 1000 watt smiles lies the talent that defines generations of actors.

Who is the best actor of all time? Is it a classic actor like Marlon Brando, a comedic genius like Charlie Chaplin, a double-threat like Clint Eastwood, or a method actor like Daniel Day Lewis? There are so many choices for the greatest movie actor ever that you may have a hard time choosing just one (although you can vote for as many of the actors on this list of the greatest actors ever as you'd like). If your favorite leading man isn't on the list, make sure to add him so others can vote for him to receive the title of best actor in film history.

<![CDATA[The Worst A-List Hollywood Actors]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/worst-living-a-list-hollywood-actors
List of the worst living A-list Hollywood actors. Not every actor can win an Oscar, let alone be in the conversation as a great actor. You won't find the men on this list to be considered the best actors of all time. Way too many actors who have parts in movies are average, if nothing less. This is a list that pays tribute to those A-list actors whose status as lead actors needs to be reconsidered, to put it mildly. These A-list actors somehow continue to get jobs in big blockbuster films even though they may not have the acting chops to carry an entire movie as a lead character. 

Many of the A-listers on this list are some of the most recognizable names in film. There is a mix of aging action stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone (both of whom's best days are in the past) and funny men like Chris Rock and Kevin James (their appearance in Grown Ups 2 lands them on this list alone). There are other movie stars on here who may have been considered top actors at one point, like John Travolta, but they haven't had a hit movie in many years. Actors like Keanu Reeves, Jean Claude Van Damme and David Arquette aren't exactly known for their range as thespians, yet continue to be considered bankable stars by the movie-going public.

This list of the worst A-listers in Hollywood isn't limited to the actors on here. If you see an actor who deserves to be on here, feel free to add him to this list. Vote for who you think deserves the title as the worst A-list actor in Hollywood.

<![CDATA[The Best Teen Movies of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-teen-movies-of-all-time/all-genre-movies-lists
A list of the best teen movies and films about teenagers, adolescence, and high school. What are the best teen movies of all time? Teenagers and young people have long been an ideal target market for film producers. They have more free time than adults, but can get themselves around and choose their own entertainment more easily than children. As well, they have disposable income, and typically spend more of their money on entertainment than their adult counterparts. What's the best teen movie ever? As this has steadily been true for several decades, it has led to a glut of films designed with teenagers in mind during that time.

Though there is no set definition on what makes a film a "teen movie," other than featuring teenagers (or at the very least, teenaged character) in significant roles, the genre has developed some defining features and common motifs over the years. Often, teen movies will explore high school as an environment, and specifically the high school community and the social cliques that form therein is a constant source of interest and observation. Much of the time, this is done with a snarky or cynical worldview, attempting to reflect the way that jaded teens often see the world of adults. Overwhelmingly popular recent entries in the high school movie sub-genre include Easy A and Mean Girls, while cult films such as Donnie Darko and Pump Up the Volume explore the same issues with an even darker or more subversive outlook.

Teens are also frequently cast as the leads in horror films, particularly the sub-genre known as "slasher films." In these films, attractive young people are typically placed in precarious situations with serial murderers, and audiences can then delight in seeing them ripped apart.

The teen films on this list span all of these sub-genres and more, including genre mash-ups combining several different storytelling modes into one film (such as the horror-comedy Scream franchise.) It's an Open list, so after you're done voting, if you see any great teen films that aren't on here, add them at the bottom of the page.

List of the best whodunit movies, as ranked by mystery movie fans and film critics from all over the world. There’s something thrilling about watching a fictional mystery unfold in front of your very eyes on the big screen. Unlike real life mysteries, you get to experience the beginning,middle, and end of the entire whodunit mystery. These movies include the moment the crime takes place to the second the detective or intelligent protagonist reveals the real culprit in a parlor room-type scene. Many of these whodunit film are gruesome mysteries where a murder has taken place, such as Primal Fear and Identity, while some are more humorous adventures, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Clue.

 

Not all of the mysteries in these films are about death.Like in the case of The Prestige and What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, the mystery is about the real motivation and actions of puzzling characters.However, most of these films are defined by their incredible detective characters, like Poirot in the Agatha Christie mysteries, who sift through clues and solve crimes like it was solving a crossword puzzle.
