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.
The list is only roughly ordered by:
10/10 (number 1-32)
9/10 (number 32-210)
All of my 10s (and many 9s) meet Roger Ebert's specification:
"Every great film should seem new every time you see it."
My personal list of all the greatest movies I've seen in my life. I'm sure I've only included half of all the movies I truly think are near perfect but I couldn't remember them all.
I'll jot them down to this list as they come to mind.
Movies I have watched the most times.
Movies I saw at just the right time in my life.
Movies that molded my sense of humor.
Movies I can never be objective about again.
Each holds a special place in my heart.
This list attempts to find the most polarizing movies, meaning the movies with a significant number of both favorites AND dislikes. It uses the formula abs(favorites - dislikes) / (checks + 50) after first filtering anything with less than 50 favorites and/or dislikes (that is dislikes + favorites < 50).
I played around with several variations before settling on this formula but it is far from perfect. Please leave a suggestion in the comments if you think it can be improved. I will attempt to keep this list up to date.
During the 2011 survey, the 3519 participants were asked to list their five favorite films of all time. 1833 elected to respond, listing a total of 1543 unique films - top 500 of which are listed here.
The reason for only 496 movies is because there were 3 duplicate on the list and 1 that doesn't exist.
Number 41 and 324 are both Seven Samurai
Number 146 and 229 are both Silence of the lambs
Number 136 and 498 are both Trainspotting

RottenTomatoes has been running a weekly feature for several years now, in which they ask a particular actor or director what their five favorite films are. It's a neat little series, and occasionally, you can try and determine whether that actor or actress is pulling a Rachel Greene and revealing that her favorite movie is Dangerous Liasons instead of what it actually is, Weekend at Bernies. Of the 36 Actors listed below.
Note: Only one film per Artist ( most favorite ) with exception LOTR trilogy because Megan Fox and Wahlberg count it as one entry. The full list in source link.
