Moby Dick

84%

A classic example of man's inherent fascination with (and deep-rooted fear of) the sea, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick has inspired countless adaptations, including the Barry Bostwick-led 2010: Moby Dick. For our list, we decided to stick with John Huston's 1956 version, starring Gregory Peck as the obsessed Captain Ahab and boasting a screenplay co-written by Ray Bradbury -- what it might lack in snazzy modern-day special effects, it makes up with committed performances and an impressive faithfulness to the novel. Calling it a "rolling and thundering color film," the New York Times' Bosley Crowther praised Huston's work as "herewith devoutly recommended as one of the great motion pictures of our times."
Rogue

100%

What's scarier than a movie about a crocodile? A movie about a giant crocodile. And what's even scarier than that? One inspired by a giant crocodile who actually existed. And okay, so Rogue played it a little fast and loose with the real story of a notorious Australian menace (ironically named Sweetheart, which, to be fair, would have made a worse title for a horror film) -- but why argue with a 100 percent Tomatometer? Brian Orndorf was just one of the critics who praised Rogue, calling it "a film predicated on ideas of suspense and pace rather than blasting violence and idiocy, Rogue is a satisfying, skilled entry in the water-based terror genre."
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

92%

Disney set an in-house budget record for its adaptation of the oft-filmed Jules Verne classic, and came away with the definitive version of the tale. It may not quite live up to its poster's all-caps boast that it's "the mightiest motion picture of them all," but for anyone who enjoys movies about fearless explorers wrangling with sharks, cannibals, and one royally ticked-off giant squid, this 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea comes close enough. Calling it "A breathtaking piece of entertainment," Film4's Richard Luck praised it as "amongst the finest live-action films to come out of Disney Studios."
