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.
These are iCheckMovies' most favorite films (including TV movies), calculated using this formula:
favorites / (checks+50)

This is a weighted version of the iCM Most Favorite list, using the formula "favorites / (checks+50)", the same formula that the official list currently uses.
The [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/]official Most Favorite[/url] list is based on incorrect fav counts (due to a bug). This list uses accurate data from Dec 20 (from the beta site), so I'm posting this list as a temporary solution until the bug is fixed.
Edit: The bug was fixed on Jan 23, and as of Jan 26 the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/]official list[/url] is based on accurate data. I will be keeping this list on iCM for historical purposes (so you can see what the list looked like in December 2011).
These are iCheckMovies' favorite shorts, calculated using this formula:
favorites / (checks+75)
This list includes documentary shorts and straight-to-video shorts.

Establishing the best anime movies can be tricky. After all, despite now being one of the most ubiquitous cultural properties of the 21st century, anime, thanks to over a century’s worth of the medium’s evolution and reinvention, is especially difficult to define. From the five-minute shorts of Oten Shimokawa in 1917, to the feature-length animations produced during World War II, to the pioneering production cycles of Tezuka in the ’60s and the auteurist innovations of the likes of Miyazaki and many others towards the latter half of the last century, anime has morphed through countless phases. Amateur efforts, nationalist propaganda fodder, niche cultural export turned eventual global phenomenon: Each iteration conforms to the shape of the times in which it was produced. Television expanded the medium during the 1960s, birthing many of the essential genres and subgenres that we know today and forming the impetus for the anime industry’s inextricable relationship to advertising and merchandising from the 1970s onward. The arrival of home video catapulted anime to its commercial and aesthetic apex, fanning outward from island nation of Nippon to the far shores of North America and back, before again being revolutionized by the unprecedented accessibility of the world wide web throughout the ’90s and early aughts. Anime film owes much to the evolving means of production and distribution throughout the late 20th century, the breadth and audacity of the medium’s content widening and contracting along with its running time to cater to the emerging palettes of audiences both new and old, at home and abroad. But where does one begin to tackle the aesthetic and historical precedent that anime film has left on pop culture and global entertainment in the last century?
This list is an attempt to do just that: to create a primer of 100 of the most influential and essential films that Japanese animation has produced, and to offer a thorough aesthetic, technical and historical breakdown of why these film matter. With that aim in mind, Paste is proud to enlist the curatorial talents of Jason DeMarco, on-air creative director of Adult Swim and co-creator of Toonami, whose unique role in anime’s emerging popularity in the West has helped to hone this list. Given the shared evolution between anime film and television and the aforementioned significance of the home video revolution, this list includes not only traditional features but also original video animations made for home video (OVAs) and anthology films— with the stipulation of each entry having at some point premiered in theaters. It is our hope that in creating this list we have created an entry point for both the expert and the layperson to trace the rich history of anime’s legacy on both film and popular culture, and to offer newcomers a comprehensive guide through to learn, rediscover, and explore the fullness that the genre of Japanese animation has to offer now and into the future.
A list of the best films not in the English language, according to Empire magazine. Documentaries were excluded.
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.
Come and take a look around at http://www.thelifecinematic.com/board/
All the films from the Silent Era top 100, plus the 200 films that didn't make the list.
The original list actually contains 298 movies. This iCM-list contains 304 movies because the following titles consist of multiple entries:
- Die Nibelungen (2 parts)
- Das indische Grabmal (2 parts)
- Fantômas (5 parts)
Films always have the ability to anger us, divide us, shock us, disgust us, and more. Usually, films that inspire controversy, outright boycotting, picketing, banning, censorship, or protest have graphic sex, violence, homosexuality, religious, political or race-related themes and content. They usually push the envelope regarding what can be filmed and displayed on the screen, and are considered taboo, "immoral" or "obscene" due to language, drug use, violence and sensuality/nudity or other incendiary elements. Inevitably, controversy helps to publicize these films and fuel the box-office receipts.
The top 100 most spiritually significant films list has been selected by the http://artsandfaith.com website, which is dedicated to the combination of art and faith.
"And for better and for worse, film has had a huge impact on masculinity in the 20th Century. Movies have produced archetypes of manliness that many men judge themselves against today. To view how male characters of cinema have been portrayed over the decades, is to see clearly the ways in which our perception of masculinity has changed and continues to change."
"This list tries to present is a broad overview of the genre, from the old to the new, from the humorous to the satirical, from the horrifying to the gory."
Note: This is not a ranking. This is a random order.

The TSPDT 250 Quintessential Noir Films list contains 241 films that all contain three key ingredients.
1) They were all produced in the United States;
2) They were all shot in black-and-white;
3) They were all produced between 1940 to 1959.
The nine films that have been included that exclude at least one of these key ingredients are two non-American-produced noir (The Third Man and Mr. Arkadin), four color noir films (Leave Her to Heaven, Niagara, Party Girl and Slightly Scarlet), and three films from the early 1960s (Cape Fear, Underworld, U.S.A. and The Naked Kiss).
Other titles included in the list are noir precursors, modern noir, non-American noir, and additional films between 1940-1964 that have noir elements.
Section changes will be listed in this complete list (so the reader will know where in the list modern noir films begin/end, etc.).
Films 1 - 250 (The Accused through The Wrong Man) are TSPDT's 250 Quintessential Noir Films.
Films 251 - 358 (The 13th Letter through A Woman's Secret) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category A: films often cited as film noir. These films weren't far away from being included on the 250 Quintessential listing, and most of them contain many - if not all - of the classic noir ingredients.
Films 359 - 513 (5 Against the House through Women's Prison) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category B: films quite often cited as film noir, but not to the same degree as those listed in Category A. It must be considered that in most cases these films contain strong film noir elements.
Films 514 - 750 (The Thirteenth Hour through A Woman's Vengeance) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category C: films not often cited as film noir. These films include certain film noir characteristics, even though - in many cases - they belong in other clear-cut genres, e.g. Westerns. However, it should also be acknowledged that many of these films are without doubt 'fully-blown' noirs (of the very neglected variety).
Films 751 - 825 (Another Man's Poison through Wicked as They Come) are British-produced noir (1940-1964).
Films 826 - 837 (Bob le flambeur through The Wages of Fear) are French-produced noir (1940-1964).
Films 838 - 843 (Ossessione through Stolen Identity) are classified as "other" non-American noir produced between 1940-1964: 1 Italian, 3 Japanese, 1 Mexican, and 1 Austrian, respectively.
Films 844 - 871 (The Beast of the City through You Only Live Once) are "Noir-Precursors": films that shaped the look of noir before the style came into its own during the 1940s. All are American-produced except The Green Cockatoo (UK), La Bête Humaine, Pépé le Moko, and Quai des brumes (France), and M (Germany).
Films 872 - 962 (Angel's Flight through The Salton Sea) are "Neo-Noir / Modern Noir" films made after the 'golden age' of film noir up to 2002. They are grouped them by decade, and all are American-produced, except for:
French-produced: Le Samouraï, Le deuxième souffle, Le cercle rouge, Série noire, La femme Nikita, Léon, and Mulholland Dr.
German-produced: Der amerikanische Freund
UK-produced: The Big Sleep (1978), Get Carter (1971), and Mona Lisa
This list consists of the favorite movies of the 00's as chosen by five core A.V. Club film writers.
My Favourite Film was a television special broadcast on the ABC on 4 December 2005. After public voting took place on the show's website, the special listed the top ten most popular films as chosen by voters, and these films were discussed and their rankings debated by a panel hosted by Margaret Pomeranz, a long-time ABC film critic, which included Judith Lucy, Stuart MacGill, Sigrid Thornton, Chris Taylor, and Richard Roxburgh.
