Thank you Dan, I'm sorry about that. As you know, I usually write IMDb right. I've let the title gone through the capitalization tool, you linked me. It's a case of auto correction. ;) It's good you saw it. Thank you. :)

Breumaster,

Thank you for updating the title of your list. I updated the title of this thread accordingly.

The capitalization tool works fine most of the time. Unfortunately, it does not handle acronyms or initialisms properly.

"This movie is intelligent, based on an excellent book, played by a legendary actor such as Morgan Freeman. Directed by a true artist ( Frank Darabont), I hope that this movie will be remembered for many years, Probably the best picture ever made. You need to see at least one time in your life."

Phenomenal and sheer brilliance in every aspect that cannot be matched by modern cinema, Coppola's 'The Godfather' is cinematic perfection in every aspect of filmmaking. A masterpiece.

Narrowing this list to ten films was extremely tough! If I was making this list some other day, it would have probably looked different, based on my mood. Bus as it stands now, my Top 10 is:

Ko to tamo peva (1980)
Excalibur (1981)
Clue (1985)
Terminator 2 (1991)
Jurassic Park (1993)
The Big Lebowski (1998)
The Prince of Egypt (1998)
The Lord of the Rings (2001-2003); I don't care what anyone says, it's a single movie, split in three parts
Children of Men (2006)
Song of the Sea (2014)

Thank you. Just single movies. Not trilogies, quarologies, pentalogies, ... etc. The movie you have chosen stand for the trilogy for real fans, isn't it? I would choose 'Back to the Future' if I would take it for the top 10 and I would let it stand for the whole trilogy. Every Fan knows that. ;)

It is such a sweet story that really left an impression in terms of me  appreciating films. I would have never branched out and tried to discover amazing films from the past or from different countries without watching this; I may never had the desire to visit this wonderful website either.

I really like that you show that 'The Godfather - Part II' is better than the first part. I think so, too. It's for me like 'Star Wars'. For me, Episode 5 was the best. :)

NIA for 'Big Bad' there are many movies. I took the most recent. It would be better to link it for such lists or at least give a date to avoid confusion. Please check, if these are the right movies, I linked. Thank you for suggesting. :D

It's an absolutely exhilarating adventure with all the right ingredients!  The makers were imaginative, but respected the wonderful source material by C.S. Lewis.  And Liam Neeson was simply made to be Aslan.

You don't have to, if you don't want to. It would make your suggestion more complete. But anyway. If you want something to quote about it later, you can do later. But when it's online, I don't want to ask for 10 repushes or something like that. Thank you for giving me your example for a top 10 list. :D

About Taxi Driver:
Taxi Driver is not only my favorite movie, it is also the movie that has affected me the most, it gave me a state of alienation like no movie, no book, no song has done it, I fell in love with the underground world through which Travis travels through of his yellow taxi in a kind of descent into madness while the smoke escapes through the vents of the streets, and the cab splashes through water from hydrants--a Stygian passage.

About Machinist:
You don’t know what you are watching until the film is finished. Then all pieces fall into place, just like Trevor Reznik, Christian Bale in the performance of his life, and you see what for masterpiece this movie is.

"Hayao Miyazaki created a masterpiece of animation, and this type of films is what makes Japanese animation always above the American, this is a mature, complex and deep animation, Miyazaki's work is almost perfect, the history is surreal and fantastic and has a beauty that only this movie could have"
This top could easily be made of Miyazaki movies, however I gave other great filmmakers a chance

The first comment only makes sense if all 10 comments are there. There is a theme in the movies selection.
Using the 1st comment is useless.

Change it to this.

The 10 movies listed here remind us of all that is good and bad in a modern society and what you can do if you dare to be part of it.

No sorry, I let it stay that way. If you don't want it, I can still change your reason-line to "n/a", if you want so. It's also about the #1, but in a top 10 list. And no - I won't redesign this all now. The poll deciders can take it online or not. They decide. I f not, it's not bad, just another offer. But if they have a lack of suggestions later, they still might use it.

my reasoning for Brazil as my #1: It's an amazing fantasy story with incredible visuals and great performances, especially Robert Dinero's cameo as the blackmarket fugitive heating repairman. It's the story of a everyman who is happy in his anonymity who finds himself chasing the girl of his dreams, literally, through the world of an oppressive government that controls everything and tries to control everyone. It holds up well after 30 years and stands the test of time.

1.- Black Swan (2010)

Visually stunning and with a powerful lead actress, it is a movie that shows three stories in one. The descent of a dancer into madness, the rivalry in a ballett for the main role and the story of Swan Lake.

2.- The Dark Knight (2008)
3.- Children of Men (2006)
4.- Jurassic Park (1993)
5.- Toy Story 3 (2010)
6.- Das Leben der Anderen (2006)
7.- El secreto de sus ojos (2009) 
8.- Whiplash (2014)
9.- Dangerous Liaisons (1988)
10.- The Mission (1986)
