Top 10 Greatest Movies of All Time (Worldwide Box Office 2010)
Arguably, there have been far better movies made than the ones shown here on this top 10 list. The problem is, we cannot measure something like the "best movies ever made according to personal tastets" very objectively - not on a worldwide scale anyway.
The only way to find out how popular a movie is on a worldwide scale, (short of surveying random samples of population everywhere on Earth that has access to a movie screen) is to measure box office sales.
Top-10er now presents to you, the Top 10 Greatest Movies Ever Made (according to worldwide box office sales). Enjoy!
