The Shawshank Redemption
The first movie in this list of top 10 movies of all time is your favorite – the Shawshank Redemption. Released in the year 1994 and directed by Frank Darabont, Shawshank Redemption is one of those movies that are made once in a generation.

It would be unfair to call ‘The Godfather’ a movie series. It’s way more than that. The Godfather was released in the year 1972 and is considered one of the highest ranked movies of all time. The way Francis Ford Coppola has directed it, you can’t stop yourself from liking Don Vito Corleone and his way of dealing with life.
The Dark Night
Heroes are meant to be loved, and criminals, to be hated. This is how the entertainment industry has been portraying heroes and villains over the last many decades. The Dark Night, released in the year 2008, went the other way. Director Christopher Nolan introduced Joker, a criminal wanting to decimate Gotham City, against Batman for the first time. Not to mention, the character of Joker garnered as much attention and popularity as Batman.
The movie collected over $1 billion in revenues. Watch it for Joker, if not anyone else!
Forrest Gump, released in the year 1994, is a treat to watch for those who think life hasn’t rewarded them as much as they deserve. If you’re sick and tired of nudity, senseless acting and bad story line in movies, give a shot to Forrest Gump. You won’t regret your decision after watching it.
