Empire's 500 Greatest Movies Of All TimeEmpire's 301 Greatest Movies Of All Time Empire's 500 Greatest Movies Of All Time

Army Of Darkness (1992)
Director: Sam Raimi
The third, and silliest, in Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy is notable for completely letting Bruce Campbell off the chin, sorry, chain. And that is a glorious sight to behold. Read Review
Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl (2003)
Director: Gore Verbinski
Remember when the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise wasn't misguidedly obsessed with character depth and darkness, and was just plain old fun? Read Review

Rocky (1976)
Director: John G. Avildsen
One of the finest ever sporting movies, a celebration of the can-do spirit - all the more important when it becomes clear that he can't. Read Review

The Breakfast Club (1985)
Director: John Hughes
To anyone who was a teen in the '80s, this will forever be the "Oh my God, someone understands me!" movie. Kudos to Hughes for giving a generation a voice that felt true. Read Review
Airplane! (1980)
Directors: Jim Abrahams, David Zucker and Jerry Zucker
The greatest spoof ever made, taking every disaster-movie cliché and twisting it until all the comedy is extracted. All the more ingenious in comparison to the lame mess of sketches that is 'spoof' today. Read Review

Cabaret (1972)
Director: Bob Fosse
Fosse's Oscar-winner is about as far from the MGM tradition as you can get. The wartime Berlin setting and flawed characters makes the swaggering desperation of the tunes all the more powerful. Read Review
