A list for all anime movies that have reached the Top 10 Movies section. Found with the Wayback Machine (https://web.archive.org/), with the earliest crawl on November 7, 2006.

Note: On December 13 2006, a "movie" called AMV Hell 3: The Motion Picture reached the Top 10. It has since been pruned from MAL due to just being a compilation of fanmade anime clips with various songs over them, however I think it's still worth looking into. It's an interesting piece of the western anime fandom's history. You can read more about it on the AMV Hell website (https://www.amvhell.com/) and watch the videos themselves on their Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/@amvhell).
