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.
Global in scope and a practical tool for students and teachers of history, Deanne Schultz's "Filmography of World History: A Select, Critical Guide To Feature Films That Engage The Past" includes description and analysis of over 300 historical films. A companion to Grant Tracey's "Filmography of American History," this critical reference book selects movies that represent aspects of world history from the middle ages through the twentieth century. These films adopt as their subject a wide range of historical events, people and societies of Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Canada, and Latin America. Over half of the entries provide extended analysis of the historical interpretation the film brings to the screen. "Filmography of World History" argues for the potential of feature films to teach us about the past and its reconstruction in academe and popular culture.
The book provides several listings of the films, the one shown here is the cross referenced list by time periods. These are divided as followed on this ICM list:
1 - 19 Medieval (c. 600-1500)
20 - 50 Early Modern (c. 1500 - 1800)
51 - 95 Nineteenth Century (1801 - 1900)
96 - 286 Twentieth Century (1901 - 2000)
287 - 292 Contemporary
Note: I have ordered the list chronologically by the years the films deal with within these groups using the years the author has provided. In cases such as WW2 films that deal with the same years, these are ordered alphabetically within these years.
For more detail about the specific years and regions of each movie, check out the book and/or download this excel file I made: [url]http://we.tl/vO29n6ik2d[/url]

ex-Top 250 films sorted by most times that they made the top 250. Then listed alphabetically.
6 times = 1 to 4
5 times = 5 to 26
4 times = 27 to 41
3 times = 42 to 56
2 times = 57 to 96
1 time = 97 to 132
The 2014 list is the 7th version and therefore the below films can be thought of as making the list 6 out 7 times, 5 out of 7 times, etc. Also, it is worth noting that the original 21st century list came out in January 2008 and therefore films made before that date have an advantage. I still find this list to be useful and interesting. I hope you do too.
