19. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington 1939
Not only is this film important for it’s story which is essentially an American story. Ironically this was the last American film shown in Germany before WW2.
18. Open Range 2003
The forgotten epic masterpiece of Kevin Costner. This is one of the best westerns of all times.
17. Shawshank Redemption 1994
The second best film of decade.
16. The Godfather Part II 1974
While most would say this is better than the first I would argue differently. No doubt this is a masterpiece.
15. Forrest Gump 1994
This is far and away the best film of the 90’s and it is a classic which has defined a generation.
14. Star Wars: A New Hope 1977
No doubt George Lucas created something so special it defined an entire generation and continues to reach everyone around the world of all faiths, race, gender and orientation.
13. Taxi Driver 1976
A few films effect you like this one does.
12. The Deer Hunter 1978
Back to back De Niro masterpieces show off his acting chops
11. Deliverance 1972
Few films will impact you like this one. It is not just brute nature of the story but what it means the people effected by it.
