Best Movies of All Time: Top 30 & Top 100 Greatest Films Ever Made

Welcome to the Ultimate Cinematic Time-Travel

This “Best Movies of All Time” list is a ticket to a cinematic journey like no other.

If this is your first ride on the time-travelling FrameTrek Wagon, here’s what this is all about:

We choose a topic, in this case: “Best Movies of All Time”, and we set sail for a journey, where the bricks of the trek are made of movie frames, and each stop represents a magnificent achievement in Film.

This “All Time” journey is actually the synopsis of 10 other amazing journeys we took. Each of them explored a selected era or decade of Cinema, and without the experiences we gathered through them, this journey would have been just too complex to undertake.


Does “All Time” actually mean “All Time” to You?

In our dictionary, “All Time” means just that: From the earliest to the latest. In cinematic terms that would be: From the dawn of Cinema aka Silent Era to the current decade.

Thus, on this journey, we will visit every single era of World Cinema, not just a selected few – and we’ll do so chronologically.

So prepare yourself, cause you’re about to see silent classics, early talkies, neo-noir, retro flicks and modern blockbusters and everything in between. Every era and every genre you can think of, will show up here.

In case you’d rather explore just one specific era in film, you may want to choose from the journeys below:

If you’re still here, that means you’re up for the full journey. Nice!

Let’s keep the balance between the decades!

It is debatable, whether some cinematic eras are more significant than others. Well, we don’t debate. Instead, we decided to keep a perfect balance between them.

Every era or decade got three spots on our highlighted list, and ten spots on our extended list at the end of this article. That’s it, no exceptions.

This is a chronological list!

This is not a worst to best list. It presents the movies chronologically, in the order they came out. This way, if you decide to watch them all, the list will take you on an actual time-travel.

If this is your first time exploring the cinema from its birth to its present, then it’s a good idea to start with watching the 30 highlighted movies of this collection.

However, if you are already a fan, who saw most of the highlights and want some more, then you should dive into the Top 100 list at the end of this article.

Ready? Buckle up then, and let the best movies of all time carry you to the Wonderland of Cinema!

See FrameTrek's definition of 'Best' and the story behind this List (click to expand) ↴

How to define ‘Best’?

That’s a pretty good question, since ‘Best’ is relative. A movie can be considered being among the best for multiple reasons, such as: Critical Acclaim, Audience Feedback, Box Office Performance, Awards and Nominations, Iconic Status, Popularity, Watchability, and even Personal Preference, or for being part of a famous list such as the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die or Roger Ebert’s The Great Movies list – or because that particular movie defined its era.

So how did we pick the Top 30 and Top 100 Movies of All Time?

Well, it wasn’t simple, and it wasn’t easy! While composing the Best Films of All Time list, we tried to consider all of the factors mentioned in the ‘How to define Best’ paragraph above, and then some.

We believe that the movies that made the cut should not compete with one another any further, so we will just present them in the order they were released in.

We picked 10 movies from each era, thus created a Top 100 List, which can be found at the end of this article. We also highlighted three movies from each era, so there’s a Top 30 List too. Let’s start with that!
