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.
BBC Culture surveyed film critics, academics, and curators from 36 countries across every continent (except Antarctica) to compile an international list of the top 100 films released since the year 2000.
The Grand Prix is an award presented annually by the Belgian Film Critics Association, an organization of film critics from publications based in Brussels, Belgium.
The Grand Prix was introduced in 1954 by the organizing committee to honor the "film that contributed the most to the enrichment and influence of cinema". In December of each year, the organization meets to vote for films released in the previous calendar year. To determine the nominations, ballots are sent in by the members – select knowledgeable film enthusiasts, academics, filmmakers, and journalists – and subsequently tabulated in order to decide the winner.
Looking at some of the older entries, it's clear that back in those days the release date in some countries was years after the original release date.
In 1999 "Hollywood" magazine in Croatia had a poll in which 42 critics, historians, and artists picked their top films. The starting list included 227 films produced by Croatian companies. Here are the Top 20.
Metacritic's running tally of the films most frequently mentioned by individual critics on the year-end Top Ten lists.
"Note that if a critic ranks more than the standard 10 films, we will not include films ranked 11th or worse. (We do include unranked lists of 11-20 titles, though each film gets just one-half of a point.) In case of a tie for first or second, each film will receive the full points for that position. Our points system works as follows:
3 points for each 1st place ranking
2 points for each 2nd place ranking
1 point for being ranked 3rd - 10th, or for being included on an unranked list of 10 or fewer titles
0.5 points for being included on an unranked list of 11-20 titles"
"Each week, The Dissolve designates a Movie Of The Week for staffers and readers to watch and discuss, with a lead-off essay on Tuesday, a roundtable-style Forum on Wednesday, and other related features."
This list includes all past Movies of the Week, as well as the next few weeks of upcoming films.
The Kring van Nederlandse Filmjournalisten (Association of Dutch Film Critics) voted for the best Dutch film released in 2012. Each of the 90 critics submitted their top 3.
The cutoff of this list is at a minimum of 7 points (rank 1 = 3 points, rank 2 = 2 points, rank 1 = 1 point). The complete list and point distribution can be found at the source url.
Best-of-the-year lists are tough enough to compile, but best-of-the-decade? It's an exquisite form of torture for those of us who watched thousands of films since 2000, truly loved dozens of them and now have to whittle it down to 10 and a fistful of honorable mentions.
It’s one thing to come up with a list of the best movies in any given year, but the best movies of a century that’s just in its 16th year? We Are Movie Geeks polled a group of 30 carefully-selected (and mostly St. Louis-based) movie critics, movie bloggers, movie academics, movie promoters, and just plain old movie fans and asked for a list, in order of preference, of their Top Ten Favorite Films so far this century. Somewhere among the endless superhero blockbusters, franchise reboots, and sequels, some really great movies have come out in the last 16 years. And some of them were indeed superhero blockbusters, franchise reboots, and sequels! The 21st century has another 84 years to go, and there’s no doubt that these choices will change as the years go by, but since it’s doubtful any of those polled will be around when the century ends (unless Stephen Tronicek – born in 1999 – makes it to 101), we might as well do this now. To come up with our top 21, a super-scientific algorithm was generated….just kidding! We simply scored each movie based on its rank in any given list. If a movie was #1 on any list, it received 10 points, #2 received 9 points, and so on (a movie ranked #10 received 1 point – get it?). Of course, all of these lists are highly subjective and some favorite titles will be omitted, so prepare to argue with the selections of these 30 film buffs.
