  1. Titanic was great on the big screen, and for those who only saw it on dvd you made a big mistake not the same movie on the tv, but ime getting a video projector because ime bored of watching films on a tv screen.

  2. The Wizard Of Oz
    The Greatest Show On Earth,
    the train wreck is mind-blowing!!
    And in closing, thre words

  3. H E A T
    Days of Thunder
    Independence Day
    Midnight Special
    Godzilla 2015
    San Andreas
    Godzilla 1985
    Young Guns 2
    Top Gun
    White water summer
    Varsity Blues

  4. How did you miss "Dances With Wolves"? The sheer vistas are of epic scope and scale and MUST be seen on full sized movie screen!

  5. What is this, Avatar, movie people speak off? Sure I remember James Cameron did a live action Smuff movie, but never herd of Avatar.

  6. Mad Max was purely an action movie. Nothing else is entertaining and meaningful. Absolutely undeserving score in IMDB.

  7. LOTR not in the top 10? Unbelievable!
    And frankly I didn't expect 2001 to be up there at all…don't remember it as an effect festival..

  8. "Sigin' in the rain"
    Just no.

    I wouldn't see this movie, even on a very very very small screen.

  9. Kinda disappointed they didn't include any animated movies, because many of them today have 3D technology that makes them better to watch at the theater than the live action ones

  10. The Lion King should've been on this list! It's one of the best and the most intense Disney film ever made, it'll look much better if seen on the big screen. They should have put The Lion King on this list instead of something like Gravity. After all, if films like Jurassic Park or Star Wars look better on the big screen, then that same thing should be said about The Lion King.

  11. Any film made by Kubrick, David Lean or Tarkovsky should be seen on the big screen. "Bridge on the River Quai" should definitely have made this list.

  12. The movies I think that should've been on the list, which I can't believe they'd leave out, are Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Alien 1 & 2, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Planet of the Apes, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Monty Python movies, and The Lion King.

  13. The Neon Demon just became one of my best theater experiences ever. How Nolan made space epic with awe is how Refn fucked me up by making the fashion industry look like a beautiful nightmare I wish to have.
