Top 10 best movies of all time

CachHayNhat - Movies are a business, but they are also a work of art. While production companies always (must) prioritize the profits a movie makes for them, the quality aspect cannot be underestimated either. However, usually a movie only fulfills the business side, while ignoring the quality. In other words: A movie that's successful at the box office doesn't have to be good. The following chart lists the Top 10 Greatest Movies of All Time. The rankings are based on rating averages taken from the top three movie rating services ( IMDB , Metacritic, and Rotten Tomatoes) and normalized to a 1-10 rating.
