Where is The Shawshank Redemption? That's #1 not only on IMDb, but mine as well.

From Wiki (on the Shawshank Redemption):

Despite a lukewarm box office reception that barely recouped its budget, the film received favorable reviews from critics, multiple award nominations, and has since enjoyed a remarkable life on cable television, VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray. It was included in the American Film Institute's 100 Years...100 Movies 10th Anniversary Edition.

The list is titled top 100 Box Office movies.

I was aware on how it did in the box office, but was wondering moreso on wwe's list. It's rated higher than both The Godfather and The Godfather II, which are #2 and #3 on IMDb's list, respectively. It wouldn't be #1 without a reason.

wwe's list is initial box office, not quality. I have to say, my original feeling on seeing that list was "I didn't know there were so many "meh" movies from the nineties".

Don’t know about fifty, but here are the ones I’d go with:

Beauty and The Beast [VHS]
Aladdin [VHS]
A Few Good Men
Homeward Bound:The Incredible Journey [favorite since fourth grade, I think it was—two VHS, one descriptive video and ojne regular]
Hocus Pocus
The Lion King [VHS]
Ace Ventura:Pet Detective
The Jungle Book [VHS]
Pocohontas [VHS]
101 Dalmatians [VHS]
Happy Gilmore [and I don’t much care for sports]
Liar Liar
Anastasia [it’s been a while—or, I should say, I had a lot on my mind at the time I saw it--so the only thing that’s really stuck in my head is the song “Once Upon a December”]
Mulan [I actually saw it twice]
Ever After [VHS and DVD]
The Parent Trap
