Rate the following "classic" movies out of 100?

With 100 being completely perfect, flawless, timeless,masterpiece, fresh, and nothing like it at the time it was released in. I asked this so people would 'break down' the following 'classic' movies. I'm not saying that these movies are bad, some of them are the greatest films of all time, I'm just curious that when you consider the technical side of it, people would still give it such a high rating. If you think it deserves a 100/100, just give it to it.


-Raging Bull

-The Godfather

-Shawshank Redemption

-Schindler's List

-Blade Runner

-Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back

-A Clockwork Orange

-Fight Club

-Die Hard

-The Pianist


-Pulp Fiction


-The Departed

-The Dark Knight

-Saving Private Ryan


BQ: What's a movie that you dislike, but would still give it a high rating?

BBQ (yum): Top 5 movies on this list?


Yes Inception is a classic.

Update 2:

Well, Inception was one of the best films of 2010 and in a long time as well, it is by far the best science fiction movie of the 21st century of all time (that's if you include it in the definition.... and c'mon, you know it doesn't deserve to be put in the same sentence as Step Brothers. Now Step Brothers, that is a really joke of a movie.

    Inception: 99/100

    I love this film and regard it as Christopher Nolan’s best. It’s already in my top 10 movies of all time. I withheld the one point only because of the presence on this list of one other I deem greatest of all.

    Raging Bull: 85/100

    A great film, likely the best sports movie, but neither Robert Di Nero’s best (despite the make-up Oscar) nor Martin Scorsese’s.

    The Godfather: 90/100

    The mother of all mafia movies, it was actually surpassed by its sequel. It still stands the test of time.

    Shawshank Redemption: 75/100

    Easily the most overrated film on IMDb’s top 250 list by virtue of the fact it is ranked #1. I’m sorry but to call this the greatest film ever made is patently absurd. It’s not even close.

    Schindler's List: 90/100

    An excellent but difficult film to watch because of its sheer (but necessary in telling the truth) brutality, this is Steven Spielberg’s most important film.

    Blade Runner: 100/100

    By far the greatest science fiction film ever made, I rate Blade Runner as my all-time favourite movie. This is the template for all sci-films to aspire to. None can touch it.

    Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back: 88/100

    Definitely the best of the Star Wars movie saga, it suffers in the acting department -- and the dialogue could’ve been written by middle school kids.

    A Clockwork Orange: 25/100

    My least favourite film by one of my very favourite directors, this movie is just too damned disturbing. The sadistic and (deeply) misogynistic elements are utterly repellant.

    Fight Club: 33/100

    I consider this THE most overrated movie of all time. The fanboy obsession with this tripe is almost laughable. Nothing in the film is realistic and, in the end, it all turns out to be fake. Complete waste of time.

    Die Hard: 20/100

    I’m being generous giving this rubbish a 20 out of 100, but that 20 rating is entirely due to Alan Rickman’s brilliantly hilarious performance as the villainous Hans Gruber.

    The Pianist: 80/100

    A good movie but not great. Adrien Brody’s high water mark as an actor.

    Gladiator: 92/100

    Ridley Scott doing what he does best: creating a world populated by people with all kinds of human frailties and dark motivations. Visually spectacular.

    Pulp Fiction: 90/100

    Considered Quentin Tarantino’s best film, I actually rate Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds higher.

    Scarface: 70/100

    Over-the-top violence and absurd dialogue do not a great film make. Al Pacino is great, as usual, but this movie is vastly overrated.

    The Departed: 97/100

    Martin Scorsese finally won his long overdue Oscar for this one and he deserved it. A brilliant story and script with a superb cast guided by one of the greatest living directors makes for one of my very favourite films.

    The Dark Knight: 92/100

    I’m proud to be in the minority on this but I actually prefer Batman Begins. Still, a Christopher Nolan movie trumps just about any other movie. In Heath Ledger we lost one of the best actors of this or any generation.

    Saving Private Ryan: 92/100

    The best modern “war movie” and probably Steven Spielberg’s best film, period. Unlike my all-time favourites, this film actually suffers upon repeat viewings.

    Heat: 90/100

    An excellent crime film by the underrated Michael Mann. It’s a pity that Di Nero and Pacino only really share one scene (with dialogue) in the entire film.

    BQ: What's a movie that you dislike, but would still give a high rating?

    I was going to say A Clockwork Orange because of my respect for Kubrick but as you see above I couldn’t bring myself to do so. I think Goodfellas might qualify. Unlike most people I know, I didn’t care for the movie but out of respect for Scorsese, Di Nero, et al, I’d probably rate it fairly high.

    1. Blade Runner

    2. Inception

    3. The Departed

    BQ- i'm not the hugest fan of Kill Bill, but in terms of quality it is a very good film


    Raging Bull

    The Godfather

    The Departed

    Pulp Fiction

    Fight Club

    all of those are in my top 10

    if Inception is a classic, so is Step Brothers. really, do you know what classic means? or are you just joking around?

    i wasn't saying it is similar in quality to Step Brothers, I was saying that people who know nothing about movies would call Step Brothers a classic, and the same thing goes for Inception.
