Pixar

We were all under the impression that the world would end at the turn of the century. Luckily it didn't, or else we would've missed all these great films.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The first movie of the Harry Potter franchise was a huge box office success, generating almost one billion dollars worldwide! This fantasy, action story is packed with compelling characters and an exciting storyline.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Although it's a remake of the beloved Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), it's arguably the better one. A fantasy like this requires quality effects that were not able to be achieved in the 70s. Also, Johnny Depp's acting was on point.

Requiem for a Dream

It's by far one of the best psychological dramas ever made. It follows the lives of four people who are addicted to four different drugs. The acting will blow you away.

Catch Me If You Can

Leonardo Di Caprio's role as Frank Abagnale was immaculate. Probably the most interesting part about this movie is that it's based on a true story. Abagnale conned millions of dollars by posing as a Pan American World Airways pilot, a doctor, and a parish prosecutor. He eventually got caught, but he was so good that the FBI asked for his help to catch other check forgers.

The Matrix Reloaded

This science fiction action film, which is the sequel to The Matrix, will always be at the top of any science fiction movie list.

Spider-Man

No movie list is complete without a superhero film. This movie's mix of action, science fiction, romance, and comedy appeals to every demographic.

The Incredibles

Not everyone is crazy about animated films, but this one is an exception. It received two Academy Awards and became the first animated film to win the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.

These next ones are on the top of our list.
