If America released Avengers 2 already, it's piling up the $ in Australia for it's first weekend!!

what about older movies ?

I guess it bespeaks age when you have only see 9 of these, and honestly, I watched Fast and Furious 6 On Demand about ten days ago because of the hype for Fast and Furious 7. I also wonder, out of sheer curiosity, how many people who have seen Avatar, I have not, in a theater, were alive in 1982 to see ET in a theater, as I was and did? I am also surprised, as befits age, that neither the original Star Wars, or Close Encounters of the Third Kind made the top 50

E.T. is by far my favorite!

Personally, I hated shriek the third, Alice in wonderland, and thought frozen was really overrated.

Happy to see that Harry Potter and lord of the Rings made it on the list. Some of my favorites! I prefer book but movies are great

When I was 8, I watched 50 in theatres and I was genuinely scared of it. I had nightmares for weeks.

Looks like The Passion of the Christ was completely overlooked again.

I'm like some of you guys! Where is Jaws on this list and definitely all of the Star Wars and Batman movies.
