The best movies are usually the ones with a high IMDb rating. That's why we made a list by promoting the movies with the highest score. If you haven't watched these movies listed by IMDb scores, you should definitely watch them because they deserve their ratings! Here are the Top Rated Movies on IMDb

1. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The Shawshank Redemption totally nominated for 7 Oscars and won 21 awards nominated to 43 awards. The short story "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption" by the famous writer Stephen King was adapted by Frank Darabont, the director, and writer of the film.

Most of you probably know the story, but we want to remind you;

It chronicles the experience of a previously successful banker as an inmate in Shawshank's dreary prison after being convicted of a crime he didn't commit. The film shows the man's unique way of dealing with his devious life; Along this journey, he makes many friends, especially a long-term inmate named Red.

2. The Godfather (1972)

The entire Godfather series, one of Francis Ford Coppola's masterpieces, is worth watching, but the first movie is different! Together, the three films were nominated for a total of 28 Academy Awards, winning nine of them. It is the second-highest-rated movie with an IMDb rating of 9.2.

Its origin is taken from the novel by Mario Puzo. This movie is appreciated even by everyone who doesn't like mafia movies. We can't tell the whole story, but let's explain a little bit; The Godfather “Don” Vito Carleone is the head of the Corleone mafia family in New York. The movie begins with his daughter's wedding. Also, his youngest son, Michael, who served as a Marine in World War II, attends the wedding, but Michael is not interested in the mafia business. Until his family's enemies begin to tear his family.

3. The Godfather II (1974)

This movie, which is the sequel to the legendary movie The Godfather, scored 9/10 almost like the first movie. The Godfather Part II won 6 Oscars in 11 categories.

We want to talk about the II-episode story; The continuing saga of the Corleone mafia family follows the ambitious young man Vito Corleone, who grew up in Sicily and immigrated to New York City in the 1910s, and how he became the godfather of the largest mafia family and survived. And the story continues with Michael Corleone, who in 1950 tried to expand his family business to Las Vegas, Hollywood, and Cuba.

4. The Dark Knight (2008)

The Dark Knight is the best Batman movie ever made for some people, and the movie features the best Joker actor we've ever seen.

The Dark Knight only won 2 Oscars, but was nominated for 163 awards, won 159 awards, and is third on our list of highest-rated movies with a score of 9 on IMDb. Of course, Christopher Nolan, one of the most famous and talented directors, has a great influence on this success.

Let's talk about the story;

Within a year of the release of Batman Begins, Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new District Attorney Harvey Dent begin to successfully round up the criminals plaguing Gotham City. And our mysterious and sadistic criminal mastermind known only as the Joker shows up in Gotham City and creates a new wave of chaos. Batman's fight against the Joker gets personal.

5. 12 Angry Man (1957)

Let's travel back in time and talk about 12 Angry Men.

According to Wikipedia: "The film was nominated for Academy Awards in the categories of Best Director, Best Picture and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium. In all of these categories, the film was eclipsed by The Bridge on the River Kwai, which won seven Academy Awards that year. At the Berlin International Film Festival, the film won the Golden Bear Award."

Maybe this movie isn't as popular as the others, so let's talk about the story; The defense and prosecution are heard, and the jury enters the jury room to decide whether a young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open and closed murder case soon becomes a detective story that offers a series of suspicious clues and a mini-drama of each juror's preconceptions and prejudices about the trial, the accused and each other.

6. Schindler’s List (1993)

One of the best drama films in history was nominated for 7 Oscars and 49 awards. Ranked 6th in our list of movies with the highest rate of 8.9 on IMDb!

Maybe the fact that it is real makes the story and the movie more effective, but the famous director Steven Spielberg also has an effect on this. Let's talk about the story of Schindler's List; During World War II in German-occupied Poland, industrialist Oskar Schindler is an arrogant and greedy German businessman who becomes unexpectedly humane when he is forced to turn his factory into a haven for Jews amid the German Nazi reign. Based on the true story of Oskar Schindler. It is a testament to the goodness in all of us that he managed to save nearly 1,100 Jews from gassing in the Auschwitz concentration camp.

We recommend that you also read the Schindler List book.
