Quite surprising that Matrix and Schindler's List aren't on the list. But both are below the $192m of Toy Story. Matrix got $171m and Schindler's List $96m in the US.

Saving private Ryan is the best war movie of all time. What about Die hard or lethal weapon

Die Hard came out in the 80's. The third one (Die Hard with a Vengeance) was mid-90's. The second one might have come out in the 90's too, but I'm not certain. In either case, neither of those was as popular as the first one.

It's in need of an update and a couple minor corrections but this is a fun little quiz I made on the subject:
Highest Grossing Films by Genre

and by "fun little" I mean ambitious and perhaps overlong. But still good, imo

Highest grossing results are always skewed, because the cost of movie tickets is constantly increasing. One day, maybe someone will figure out revenue in terms of how many movie tickets were sold. Highest amount of tickets sold seems like a better indicator.

Agreed. That would also make comparisons between different countries meaningful.

If you visit the website Box Office Mojo, they do have charts that account for ticket price inflation.

I think, adjusting for inflation, Gone with the Wind is the best-selling first-run movie of all-time, followed by the original Star Wars movie. Rocky Horror has sold a ton too, but people don't generally count that one because it relies on the ticket sales of the midnight screenings that have been playing regularly around the country for several decades.

I tried "Star Wars I" and "Star Wars 1", but could not remember "phantom menace" or that word "episode" in between.. I think just Star Wars I/1 should be accepted as well.

That should definitely be accepted, as that's the title of the movie!

Could you accept "Star Wars" for Star Wars: Episode 1? Seems a little silly that you don't since you can get Toy Story 2 from simply typing in "Toy Story".

"Star Wars" is generally understood to refer to "Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope", aka the very first Star Wars movie from 1979. It's weird that typing "Toy Story" gets you both answers and I think the Quizmaster should fix that.

I know I'm being pedantic but Star Wars (which was just called Star Wars back then) came out in 1977.

Likewise, "Jurassic Park" for both the original and the sequel, as with Toy Story?

hunt for red October only made 200 million world wide and seeing as this is a list for juts USA and the lowest on the list made 192 million in US alone its safe to say hunt for red October doesn't belong on this list

Thanks for taking MIB and T2. Can we also accept ID4 so I can stop typing in Independence Day?
