This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
Here's a bunch of potentially shitty flicks we'll see together at the Skype Crew.
If you know of a crappy movie, that's also an official check, and is not on this list, recommend away!
Wanna watch a movie with the Skype Crew? Send me a PM, then. :)
The list can also be found at IMDb, with our ranking for each movie: http://www.imdb.com/list/gEVCJVXOpD4/

If comparing music from Gillian Welch and Outkast in our 50 Best Albums of the Decade is like apples and oranges, ranking films like Amélie, The Dark Knight and Mulholland Drive is more like apples, ice cream and foie gras. But despite the wild variety among our 50 Best Movies from 2000-2009, each is an exquisitely made, exceptionally satisfying piece of cinema that we believe will endure well after the decade has ended. There are masters like Martin Scorcese and Lars Von Trier, and relative newcomers like Fernando Meirelles and Anna Boden. There are documentaries, comedies and dramas, as well as animated films and even a super-hero flick. Mirroring a decade of globalism, the filmmakers are from the United States, New Zealand, Taiwan, Germany, Ireland, France, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Denmark, Romania, Thailand, Brazil, and nearly every part of the U.K. Let these be our recommendations for your Netflix queue. Personally, after reading the loving descriptions in these pages, I’ve already got films I missed the first time around—like Syndromes and a Century and Beau Travail—on the way. —Josh Jackson, Paste editor-in-chief
"This guide presents our selection of the best movies from the years 1931 to 1940, covering a wide range of genres, budgets, and cultures, and revealing details from behind the scenes. Packed full of photos and film stills, this opulent factbook pays homage to cinema around the world."
Taschen is a famous art book publisher and its movie books are terrific.
The Life Cinematic is a message board full of film enthusiasts. Members have a very diverse and unique taste in film. This resulted in this consensus list based on their individual top 100s.
The site is now defunct, but this list is a glimpse into what a wonderfully idiosyncratic and often mental place it was.
This list contains 250 films by the 250 greatest directors of all time, according to "they shoot pictures don't they?". Each director has one entry; their most critically acclaimed film. Two directors appear more than once on the list (Michael Powell and Stanley Donen) and all together there are 5 director couples (Powell/Pressburger, Donen/Kelly, Coen Brothers, Cooper/Schoedsack and Straub/Huillet). #76 is a TV-mini-series; #81, #151, #157, #180, #190 and #202 are short features, the rest of the entries are featured films.
The YouTube web series www.FreakyFuckinFriday.com counts down the Top Horror / Mystery Anthology Episodes Ever! .
....but because anthology shows usually feature episodes in diverse sub-genres - this list will also include episodes based on; fantasy, science-fiction, comedy, drama, war, crime, etc.
The only requirement is the episode must have been featured on an anthology show.
The episodes listed are all based on at least 1 of 3 things; historical importance, creepiness/creativity, and just being a straight up enjoyable watch. The list will change as new episodes of shows are released and older shows are rediscovered/re-examined.
The list is in descending order from best to least best.
Feel free to comment! Every piece of input will be carefully examined.
