Top 10 Errors in Science Fiction Movies

Top 10 Errors in Science Fiction Movies

Movies and TV
Science Fiction movies are great for expanding the mind and showing us things we may never get to see in real life. Unfortunately though, they all seem to make the same fundamental errors regarding true science. This is a list of the top 10 errors in Science Fiction movies. 10. Simplicity This is less a crime of commission than one of omission. Space is full of wonders we cannot even begin to understand, yet most science fiction films are based in a very simplistic environment and do not even begin to investigate the wonderful possibilities that science fiction offers us. We don’t see interplanetary tunnels, aliens on planets around pulsars, creatures living on dead suns, alien life forms that inhabit the edges of supermassive black holes, or so many of the other thought provoki...
Top 10 Great Movie Speeches

Top 10 Great Movie Speeches

Movies and TV
Filmmakers are often accused of writing movies that give quick snippets and no real substance, but from time to time a truly great scene comes out that includes brilliant speech writing. This is a list of the ten greatest movie speeches. Obviously many of you will disagree with my selection, so feel free to add your own to the comments. Include a youtube link if you can so we can all enjoy the goods! 10. Matt Damon’s Speech Good Will hunting Pride comes before a fall and in this scene – we see a perfect example of it. This is a wonderful scene that anyone who has ever made mocked will appreciate. I especially like the way he wraps things up with the offer to “step outside” – he may be a walking library, but he is also a badass! Buy this DVD at Amazon 9. ...

Top 10 Christmas Horror Movies

Movies and TV
Sure, we all know Christmas is about the birth of our Savior, and, to some extent, gift giving and Santa Claus, but, what you didn’t know is that Christmas is also about fine cinematic horror choices. Horror on Christmas? Absolutely. Some of the genre’s finest films take place on this – our most beloved of holidays. And, this is the List Universe after all – we love to horrify, frighten, revolt and shock you! Here are ten of the best choices for your very SCARY Christmas! 10.

Top 10 Adorable Animals From Cartoons

Top 10 Adorable Animals From Cartoons

Movies and TV
For all the animal lovers, furry fans and artists. Why do we continue to watch cartoons into old age? A lot of it has to do with the adorable appearances of the animal characters. Everyone has their favorites, so there is bound to be disagreement with some of my choices. Please feel free to add your own in the comments (links to photos or video clips would be good too). Scrat is a saber-toothed squirrel who is absolutely nuts for acorns. The films have their moments, but they succeed primarily because everyone wants to see Scrat’s more and more ridiculous attempts to acquire his cursed acorn and bury it. He’s never going to succeed, and his first attempt causes a gargantuan avalanche. He has made friends with a female flying squirrel, Scratte, only to give her up for the ac...

Top 10 Living Directors

Movies and TV
This is a list of the top 10 living movie directors. I have selected primarily directors of English speaking films as this would become too big a list otherwise. These are the most forward thinking, groundbreaking, or just plain awesome directors. As usual, add your favorites to the comments. 10. Steven Spielberg Notable Films: Empire of the Sun, The Color Purple, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Catch me if you Can Spielberg is a three-time Academy Award winner and is the highest grossing filmmaker of all time, with an estimated net worth of $3 billion. As of 2006, Premiere listed him as the most powerful and influential figure in the motion picture industry. TIME named him in the ’100 Greatest People of the Century’. At the end of the 20th century LIFE named him th...
10 Awesome Easter Eggs You Missed In Your Favorite Movies

10 Awesome Easter Eggs You Missed In Your Favorite Movies

Movies and TV
“Easter eggs” are jokes and messages intentionally hidden within a work of art. They are direct communications between the artist and their fans, and they can be found in video games, songs, computer programs, books, music videos, and especially movies. 10Frozen (2013) Disney And Eating Boogers As Anna and Kristoff head up North Mountain in search of Elsa the Ice Queen, Anna admitted that she’s in love with Hans even though the two had only spent a short time together. Kristoff scoffs at the notion and points out that she barely even knows Hans. Memorably, he quips, “What if you hate the way he eats? What if you hate the way he picks his nose . . . and eats it? All men do it.” Later, at the very end of the film’s credits, the filmmakers inserted the f
Top 10 One on One Battles in Film

Top 10 One on One Battles in Film

Movies and TV
Movie’s have long given us some amazing battle and fight scenes. This list is reserved for one on one battles only. Good Vs. evil, protégé Vs. master, even father vs. son, this list is dedicated to those memorable and significant fight scenes that we won’t forget. My only regret is that I am definitely forgetting some top contenders. The ones I’ve chosen are picked based on the intensity, history and significance and are among my personal favorites. Happy reading. In one of the movie’s final scenes, Han realizes who is true nemesis is and battles his long time friend to the death. The fight is extra memorable as the two have a mock battle earlier in movie which more or less ends in a draw. Han finally finishes off his brother’s murderer with a well placed kick to the head while th
Top 10 Greatest South Park Episodes

Top 10 Greatest South Park Episodes

Movies and TV
Narrowing the episodes from thirteen seasons of South Park to just a select ten is no easy task. But someone had to do it. Whether you love or hate the show, there is no denying the huge success and cultural impact of it. By parodying current events and celebrities, the creators manage to produce fresh material that has kept the show from going stale. You may not agree with all of the choices on this list, but if not, just add your own to the comments. Each item contains a video commentary by the creators. Warning: video clips contain some bad language. This episode starts with a Mormon family moving to South Park. One of the children in the family seems like the perfect child so Stan is recruited to beat him up. The best parts of the episode are when the Mormon family tell of the p...
Top 10 Awesome Films Hollywood Ruined With Lies

Top 10 Awesome Films Hollywood Ruined With Lies

Movies and TV
To “hollywoodize” a film is to distort historical or scientific facts deliberately for the purpose of enhancing the drama – essentially, to wreck a film. Below are ten movies with great potential that, alas, in the hands of Hollywood, have de-educated the masses by their errors – simply for the sake of entertainment; much in the same way as some unnamed top 10 list sites do. Read on for an education in what not to do when making historic films. This makes the list because of one particular scene, and anyone who has seen it knows what it is – the scene in which Jones escapes an atomic blast by hiding in a lead-lined refrigerator. George Lucas, who wrote most of the story, swears that he consulted nuclear physicists on the plausibility of the scenario and w...
Top 10 Films So Bad They Are Hilarious

Top 10 Films So Bad They Are Hilarious

Movies and TV
Films are an art form. Even the earliest forms, starting with nickelodeons in the 18th century, were meant to elicit some kind of emotional response from their audience. This emotional response has to be specific, though. If a filmmaker made what they thought was a stirring emotional drama, but it ends up hitting none of its intended beats, then it is considered a failure. I think the word “failure” is completely subjective. Avatar is the highest grossing movie of all-time, meaning it was obviously successful, but I thought it was pretty lame. The highest praise that I can give any movie is that I was thoroughly entertained by it. I can love a movie like The Godfather, but only watch it maybe a couple of times in my life, but I’ve seen Big Trouble in Little China probably...
Top 10 Worst Blockbusters In Recent History

Top 10 Worst Blockbusters In Recent History

Movies and TV
[WARNING: potential spoilers] This isn’t necessarily a list of the worst movies of all time, although a lot of them would probably make that list, also. This list has more to do with being crappy, escapist garbage that appeals to the lowest-common denominator. That isn’t to say that you should feel bad if some of these movies are personal favorites of yours– Actually, yes, you should feel bad if some of these movies are personal favorites of yours. You will notice a lot of Jan de Bont, Roland Emmerich and Michael Bay on this list. This is because they are awful. But you know what? I still go see their movies. I think Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen, but will that stop me from seeing Transformers: Dark of the Moon...
Top 10 Reasons To Keep Kids Off The Screen

Top 10 Reasons To Keep Kids Off The Screen

Movies and TV
There’s a commercial running for a little while now, a promotion for a new t.v. show that’s about to air. About aliens violently invading our planet, whereupon the world becomes a dystopia of overturned cars and utter panic. In it, after showing scenes of deranged-looking aliens (CGI, no less) ripping humans apart and plasma cannons blowing through architecture like micro-tsunamis, a little boy, not even looking up from his Game Boy, simply, effortlessly, and casually says to his dad, “I just want everything to go back to normal.” Not because his friends and family are one by one being targeted by homicidal space-beings (which exist) or that he’s homeless and been forced into a game of survival, he offers the emotional content as if he just said “I don&#...
Top 10 Best And Worst Shark Films

Top 10 Best And Worst Shark Films

Movies and TV
The date was June 20th, 1975, when milestone film Jaws made a splash in the entertainment business. Steven Spielberg’s larger than life movie dragged audiences from their seats into the depths of the ocean for the thrill ride of their lives. The movie profoundly affected our desire to stay away from beaches, and revolutionized Hollywood films, by producing the first ever blockbuster hit. Today’s list is dedicated to the legacy Jaws spawned. We’re honoring the best, and worst, shark movies in different categories. It should be no surprise that the most expensive film on this list had the greatest special effects. The mako sharks looked authentic thanks to director Renny Harlin’s intelligent use of both animatronics and CGI. Their proportions weren’t too exag...
Top 10 Reoccurring Horror Movie Gimmicks

Top 10 Reoccurring Horror Movie Gimmicks

Movies and TV
Horror movies are rarely ground-breaking, and when they are, it just leads to a thousand formula-dependent duplicates riding on the successful tailcoats of the predecessor. Some of these fads have come and gone, but some are relentless and proving to be a market of not fully-exhausted wealth. When they are bled dry, we might see a new, good idea come along, but such moments are few and far between; otherwise the horror industry, like anything else in Hollywood, is just an overgrown recycling center with far too many unsorted knife blades. Here are the top ten gimmicks that we see time and again in the palest parts of the Fear Factory. Examples include The Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity. It hasn’t quite been overused, except to say that the Paranormal Acti...

10 Most Extraordinary Androids In Science Fiction

Movies and TV
What separates man from machine? Thanks to the evolution of modern technology during the last few decades, this question has been pondered over by many modern thinkers—but for every answer offered, another question is born. Is it our ability to be interconnected that makes us human? Is it our ability to make conscious decisions? Is it the fact that we don’t just rely on instinct, but instead use our intellectual capabilities of reason and foresight? Or perhaps our difference simply lies in our arrogance—our self-proclaimed superiority over every other creation? These are interesting questions, and the following list—by describing ten of the most well-known human androids in the history of science fiction—might help us answer them. This list was inspired by th...

With Halloween right around the corner, you’re going to need an endless stash of horror movies to make sure your nerves stay shot straight though the Day of the Dead, itself. Given that a lot of horror fanatics have written for Listverse over the years, there is plenty of reference material to keep that scare-pantry stocked.

10 Movies That Look Suspiciously Like Rip-Offs

Movies and TV
Many films popular today for their supposed originality really just rework well-used tropes. With a little digging, you can uncover predecessors that are coincidentally extremely similar in plot. Occasionally, the overlap even extends beyond coincidence into outright plagiarism, and the original filmmakers sue to get the credit they’re owed. 10The Hunger Games The most lucrative and controversial story of teens killing each other under controlled conditions for public consumption, The Hunger Games has the world’s attention by the eyeballs. While many have criticized Suzanne Collins’s prose and certain contrivances in the story, many think the premise and characters transcend the limitations of the writing. Film it’s uncannily similar to: Slashers Thought we were going to s

10 Often Misclassified Animated Characters

Movies and TV
The animal world is filled with inspiration for animators and cartoon character designers, and often they look at little known species to avoid being cliche. Often the result is a popular character, and a lot of fans left wondering “what kind of animal is he supposed to be?” This list looks at ten examples of characters from animated movies, and it shows that there is often confusion as to their intended species. If your favorite animal character from animation is not here and you want to know the species, ask in the comments section! In the popular animated series Kim Possible, Kim’s sidekick Ron Stoppable has a small, super-smart, super-cute hairless pink rodent named Rufus as a pet. It was the only pet he could have as his father was allergic to anything furry (and ...

Top 20 Simpsons Quotes

Movies and TV
The Simpsons first appeared in its current format in 1989. Since then it has become hugely successful and is the longest running US sitcom. It would never have lasted so long if it did not have some of the funniest writing on TV. While fans debate whether the series has gone down hill in recent series, I think we can all agree that it has given some great laugh-out-loud quotes. Here are twenty of the best. Bart: I don’t want a new dog. I want Santa’s Little Helper! Homer: Well, crying isn’t gonna bring him back, unless your tears smell like dog food. So you can either sit there crying and eating can after can of dog food until your tears smell enough like dog food to make your dog come back or you can go out there and find your dog… Rats, I almost had him eating ...
Top 15 Best Werewolf Movies

Top 15 Best Werewolf Movies

Movies and TV
Horror Movies are a genre that the world seems to be relatively divided on. On one side, you have those that steer clear of those gory, disgusting films like a dose of the plague; claiming outright fright and a simple inability to handle the scenes and sounds. On the other hand are those so deeply invested in the subject as to wait with baited breath for the next fright fest to hit the screens or DVD rack; loving so dearly the bloody visuals and the gut-wrenching soundtrack. Horror has been around a long time, and many stand-outs of the genre have come to really define what it is to be a horror movie: Dracula, Frankenstein, Nightmare Creatures, Slashers, and Aliens. But to me, one of the most horrific creatures to inundate the movie market is the Werewolf. Perhaps it’s the simple fac...
13 Chilling Hammer Horror Films

13 Chilling Hammer Horror Films

Movies and TV
Hammer. A name synonymous with lush, Gothic horror with a very British tint. The Halloween season is ideal for bringing us back to those years from about 1958 until the early 70s, when Hammer—previously a somewhat down-on-its-luck film studio, hit upon the winning formula of revived horror classics with a fresh, Technicolor hue, liberally doused in blood and gore. Hammer produced dozens of films and a few TV series in its lifetime (it had a dry run in the 30s, before war-time exigencies slowed production and brought the studio to near-failure) –comedies, war movies, straight dramas, science fiction—but it became know for those fifteen or so years of full-color period piece horrors—often derivative and cheap and sometimes exploitative—but always flashy and classy and fun. Of course, to

Top 10 Box Office Bombs You Should See

Movies and TV
All of the films listed here were major bombs at the box office. Many films fail at the box office due to bad marketing, bad timing, or any number of problems not related to the quality of the movie itself. Despite that, they are all excellent films and well worth watching. Many thanks to TheAlchemyst for suggesting this topic on the List Universe Forums. 10. The Cotton Club 1984, Francis Ford Coppola Francis Coppola’s jazz age musical crime drama was about the famed late 1920s Prohibition Era Harlem nightclub and gangsters of various ethnic groups (Irish, Jewish, Italian) in competition with each other in Harlem. It also followed a secondary plot line regarding the musical dance team of Sandman and Clay Williams (Gregory and Maurice Hines), who worked in the Cotton Club — w...

10 Movies Stuck in Development Hell

Movies and TV
For every successful project that gets made in Hollywood, there are dozens that seem destined for glory, only to end up languishing on the shelf for years. In Hollywood this is known as ‘Development Hell’, and there are few worse places. There are many reasons for a script or project to get stuck in Development Hell; rewrites don’t pan out, important people leave the project or the studios just lose interest. Sometimes there are no reasons and certain projects can just never catch a break. There are cases of films being rescued from Development Hell, but that will be another list. This is a list of ten films which are currently stuck in the fiery pit of Development Hell. Some might see the light of day, others will never escape. Dare you enter?

10 Films You Haven’t Seen But Should

Movies and TV
I am taking a big risk with this list because I know how well versed our readers are when it comes to movies. Nevertheless, I am going to do it anyway. This is a list of films that the majority of people have not seen (and in some cases probably haven’t heard of) that are great in their own way and should be watched as soon as possible. WARNING: Some video clips contain bad language and nudity. There are also spoilers here. People with a phobia of taxidermy might want to avoid item 4. 10.

Top 10 Face-offs in Fiction To Make You Cry

Movies and TV
Almost every story has an ultimate showdown. The hero and the villain having their last hooray, two old friends finally settling their differences, or even a family squabble. The best confrontations have more than just fists swinging; they have emotional weight behind them. Characters involved often have everything riding on it; they’ve been through hell and put each other there. What follows is a list of some of fiction’s best Final Showdowns that are jam packed with feeling. Naturally this list has its fair share of spoilers. If you see a title for an entry and don’t want it ruined, skip it!

Top 10 Movie Sequels You Have Never Heard Of

Top 10 Movie Sequels You Have Never Heard Of

Movies and TV
Hollywood thinking today is to release sequels to practically any blockbuster…which is why in 2007 we saw a rash of threequels: Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Ocean’s Thirteen, The Bourne Ultimatum, and Rush Hour 3. All of those films made oodles of cash, showing if at first you do succeed, try, try again until you’ve milked it dry. Surprisingly, even some classic and well-renowned films have been given sequels, but needless to say, they have not become classics. Most of the films on the following list were not intended as “official” sequels, but nevertheless continued the stories and characters of earlier classics. Unofficial sequels can work well… a few such films are very popular, like The Lion in Winter...

Since 1929, 80 movies have been awarded the Best Picture Academy Award. Some of these have stood the test of time and critical and popular acclaim. Others – well – haven’t. For every Godfather there is a Terms of Endearment. With the help of IMDB (for rankings), this list contains the 15 least popular Best Pictures ever. If there are any “best of” movies you think deserve to be on the list, be sure to tell us in the comments. Here, they are from best to worst.

10 Films Portraying Genius

Movies and TV
Genius is defined as a person having a natural capacity of intellect. Many movies portray these individuals, with their individual skills, whether it is mathematics, science, art or music. Here are 10 films which brilliantly portray 10 different “versions” of genius in modern cinema. Most of the films are based on the character’s life and, in particular, how their abilities fit into their lives and the lives of people around them. The majority of them are based on real people, and the list is in alphabetical order. Jackson Pollock was an American abstract painter who died in 1956, aged just 44. He was best known for his expressionist paintings done on large canvases, usually stretched across the floor. Instead of painting, he would throw paint over the canvas, dripping it and smearing i

Movies and TV
Many know the names of actors who died in airplane crashes (Audie Murphy, Vic Morrow), or in automobile accidents (James Dean), but which actors have died in fires? Here is a list of the Top 10 Actors Who Died in Fires. Many died at home, others on the stage. Some are well known, others not so much. Some died in famous fires with hundreds of other people, others have died alone in the privacy of their own house. Each tells a story, just as they did when they were acting. Only these stories are all too real. Claude Burroughs was a young up and coming actor who had the misfortune of dying in a fire better-known than his short acting career. He died on December 5, 1876, in the tragic and devastating Brooklyn Theater fire. He was only 22 years old at the time. At least 278 people we...

I admit it: I’m a sucker for sequels, even though they’re, almost always, a major let-down, in comparison to the original. Still, I plunk down my hard-earned money in hopes of reliving the excitement and wonder of the original all over again. Unfortunately, new directors, screenwriters and actors who phone in their performances for a paycheck, disappoint over and over again. This list was compiled based on original movies that experienced great box-office power, or are cult classics. If you find this list incredibly depressing, head over to the Top 10 Best Movie Sequels to lift your spirits.

Film actors and crews are often put in to highly dangerous situations in order to give a more authentic result to their films. This has, sadly, on many occasions lead to tragedy on the set.

Twilight Zone: The Movie – 1983 Wikipedia Deaths: Vic Morrow and child actors Myca Dinh Le (age 7) and Renee Shin-Yi Chen (age 6) The making of the movie had consequences which overshadowed the film itself.

Top 10 Secret Agent Series From The Sixties

Movies and TV
This list contains a competition – further details at the bottom of the list. Everybody knows Ian Fleming’s master spy, James Bond. The suave and handsome secret agent with a license to kill, Bond became the new face of cinematic spies after the release of Dr. No, the very first Bond film, in 1962. Before Bond, spies were often portrayed as paunchy, unattractive, cowardly, even elderly—much of which may have been more accurate, in reality—but the Cold War-ridden 1960s was more interested in fantasy and escape than cinema verite. And so, instead of the seedy and miserable nobody of Joseph Conrad’s “Secret Agent,” spies became good-looking ladies’ men with charm and toughness to spare. Ian Fleming probably didn’t realize what a seed he was planting when he created James Bond. Almost
Top 20 Greatest Science Fiction Movies of the 1980s

Top 20 Greatest Science Fiction Movies of the 1980s

Movies and TV
Action and adventure dominated sci-fi films in the 1980s, thanks in large part to the Star Wars craze. The decade is splattered with many bad films (Masters of the Universe), terrible movies (Superman IV) and unwatchable garbage (Flash Gordon). Even so, finding standouts was easy; narrowing the list to a manageable length was hard. So, to avoid a really long list, I again forced myself to a limit of 20. (Consequently, only one Star Wars and one Star Trek movie are represented here.) And also to keep the list manageable, the films had to be high in quality of writing, story, acting, direction, music, and etc. Great action flick, great premise, great ending! What starts out as a typical shoot-‘em-up turns into a terrifying game of cat and mouse between Arnie and a high-tech hunter alien. H
Top 10 Stereotypical Horror Movie Victims

Top 10 Stereotypical Horror Movie Victims

Movies and TV
The horror movie genre will quickly set up characters’ personalities in the first half of a hack and slash film, since there’s less room for character development during the bloodbath. That’s why besides the usually cautionary advice (never enter a dark room alone, don’t trip, etc.), there are some types of characters who are literally made to die. If there’s only one survivor by the end, then these are the characters least likely to make it. Ever met someone who just won’t stop talking no matter what? In the horror movie genre the saying, “Use your mouth less and your ears more” should be taken literally. It’s rarely ever the most talkative person who makes it to the end. Rather, it’s the characters that hush up and actually h...

Top 10 Creepy Girls in Fiction

Movies and TV
A recent trend in media is the idea that children are scary or creepy. Girls seem to be particularly popular – from pale-faced, stringy-haired ghosts to demonically possessed victims, creepy girls are becoming a common feature in horror films and other genres. This list covers ten creepy girls who have appeared in films, TV and video games in the past thirty or so years, to frighten or fascinate audiences. Most can be terrifying but have a sense of sympathy to them, or some are just unstoppable creatures of evil wanting to rip the world apart. Swedish film Let the Right One In and its American remake Let Me In are a pair of delightful horror/romance films featuring a twelve-year old boy befriending and eventually loving a vampire girl, respectfully named Eli and Abby in the two fi...

Top 10 Survival Tips For People In Horror Flicks

Movies and TV
It’s Friday! So today we have a fun list. There have been some gory horror films throughout time, but one thing they all have in common is a lack of survival instinct. Here are some tips to aid the characters in surviving an impending slaughter and being part of yet another film cliche. Be sure to add some of your own survival tips to the comments. Never enter a car without double checking the back seat for strangers. Also don’t check the boot until you have found a weapon that is strong enough to puncture it first. You never know who may be hiding in there. If you have found a good hiding place, do not peek or think it’s safe to leave. However, if you are absolutely certain it is the perfect time to leave, examine your surroundings, especially the ground. The sou...
Top 10 Dark Themed Teen Movies

Top 10 Dark Themed Teen Movies

Movies and TV
The more popular contemporary genre of teen-related films are comedies but throughout each decade, teen films have journeyed into dark and sometimes scary portrayals of high school life. The verisimilitude of these dark depictions are ones that most of us may be able to relate to or something we’d see in social themed television shows. Regardless of what the story is, this list contains movies that do not provide the audiences entertainment with laughter but thought-provoking verity. Larry Clarke’s feature debut came along with very mixed reactions from critics. The film Kids is one of the most realistic depictions of lower-class, urban teenagers one may ever come across. The film plays out like a documentary about sexually active teenagers in New York. The plot is circled a...

There are plenty of action movies that are just bad; plain and simple. Bad acting, script, editing, effects, you name it. This is not a list of those movies. Sure, they may have aspects of all the above mentioned, but they still manage to work. Some movies are so gratuitously cheesy that you can’t help but fall in love with them. They are so bad, they are good. They are the guilty pleasures of the film world. The nineties brought a wave of these popcorn selling blockbusters, and in many ways revolutionized modern action movies. Think Nicolas Cage (gracing our list 3 times) performing useless somersaults amidst a gunfight with John Travolta in a church, as a dozen doves inexplicably migrate through the room.
