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.
"This list of films is supposed to be a representative sample of the kinds of films that are produced and consumed in South Asia and elsewhere. It formed part of bfi's South Asian Cinema 2002 programme designed to present to the British public for the first time the immense diversity of South Asian cinema."
This is the list that was compiled by experts. BFI also ran a [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/bfi+south+asian+top+50+-+readers+poll/sienel/]user poll[/url].
The list is divided into 5 sections:
41-50: Sri Lankan
"This list is based off the book The Screwball Comedy Films: A History and Filmography, 1934-1942 by Duane Byrge and Robert Milton Miller.
From the introduction:
'A screwball comedy was at heart a love story. It’s central romance was frequently instigated by an aggressive, even eccentric woman whose efforts to prod her more stodgy and conventional beau along the rocky road to the altar primed the comic mechanisms for a great deal of humor-by-embarassment. Improbable events, mistaken identities, and ominously misleading circumstantial evidence quickly compounded upon each other, albeit by seemingly logical progression, until a frantic conclusion in which even the impending marriage gives only faint promise of providing some whit of order as antidote to the previous narrative chaos.
This book is intended as an historical menu for the feast, as well as a guide to sorting out and identifying the certifiably screwball from the much larger parade of vintage cinema comedy which surrounds it in the program schedules and on the cassette racks. Each of the following freature films described in the second section of this book has been found by the authors to qualify as sufficiently "screwy," by the standards of the era, to merit inclusion in our annotated filmography.'
The films are listed chronologically."
All the various prizes FIPRESCI - the International Federation of Film Critics - has given at Cannes, including: "In Competition," "Un Certain Regard," "Critics' Week," "Parallel Section," and "Special Mention."
In 1998, the Prize Un Certain Regard was introduced to the section to recognize young talent and to encourage innovative and daring works by presenting one of the films with a grant to aid its distribution in France. This list includes all films in the section that received awards (the Prix un certain regard itself, plus any special mentions and jury prizes.)
"This list of 1000 short films is compiled from various lists as well as my own list. Each has a 50% weight in Top 500. Since there are not enough data or lists for short films further, the second half (501-1000) is almost entirely based my own list (90%)."
1. The original list ranks "Nachalo nevedomogo veka" two segments separably: #95 and #268. Here the film is ranked #99 only.
2. Fantasia to referenced to "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment
3. Les sept péchés capitaux is referenced to Godard's "La Paresse" episode
4. L'Amore is referenced to "Il Miracolo" segment
Films included on Criterion collection titles in addition to the main feature.
These are both long and short films, however the only requirement is that they are not a traditional 'extra' about the film, like a making of film or an interview. They are instead an additional film, often by that director, that could easily stand alone (if a full feature) or in a compilation (if a short film).
Note: this does not include individual episodes of portmanteau films
Published in 2003, Entertainment Weekly Magazine described their Top 50 Cult Movies thusly: "most died at the box office, some of them horribly. Mangled and despised, they were re-animated on video. And now they compose our cultural Esperanto, a subliminal vocabulary of vaguely subversive images, ideas, and phrases that we continue to obsess over and dissect at parties, around water coolers, in bars, over the blaring banalities of the mainstream media din. They are Cult Movies...So if you take your dead evil and your buckaroos banzai-ed, pour yourself a tall glass of Kool-Aid and peruse this list…"
Note: Reader response to the original list was so great, that EW subsequently annexed their list with 11 “readers’ choice” picks. Why 11? Well, it's one longer, isn't it …?
This is a list of every film voted for in the iCM 500<400 poll that is tagged as being in the horror genre on IMDb (genre tags are subject to change and the whims of IMDb users). It is ranked by number of points it received in the poll. 1-19 were top 500 and in the official list, 20-39 were in the 500-1000 range, 40-101 were in the 1001-2000 range, 102-296 were in the 2001-5000 range.
The “Dizionario dei Film” (Italian for: “Dictionary of Films”) – written and updated on a year-by-year basis by Laura, Luisa and Morando Morandini – is one of the highest-praised collection of film-reviews in Italy. Its purpose is to give the readers a short summary and a brief critical view for every film ever shown in our Country (even if available just on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.). Currently, about 27’000 films are reviewed on it.
At the end of every article, there is a star-based rating, which works like this: * (one star), * 1/2 (one star and a half), * * (two stars), * * 1/2 (two stars and a half), * * * (three stars), * * * 1/2 (three stars and a half), * * * * (four stars), * * * * * (five stars).
The four-star rating is generally given to film regarded as masterpieces, while the five-star rating is assigned to those films that are considered to be fundamental in the history of cinema or that represent the highest achievement of a great director.

Original IMDb list created by Dr-Faustus.
[quote=Dr-Faustus]There can be no fictional film that compares to the atrocities of real life. Some of these atrocities, abuses, injustices and crimes committed have been documented. Unfortunately man has learn't little from his past. Hopefully these films will create awareness and prevention in the future. "Only by acceptance of the past, can you alter it".- T.S. Eliot. This list is dedicated to all those people working towards a peaceful, tolerant and harmonious world, and IMDb for creating the means for people to do so, through film.[/quote]
This is a list of the ten most voted movies on IMDb from each year in the 1990's. It gives another perspective than the list with the highest ratings. You could call it more of a popularity contest than a quality contest.
