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 They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? 1,000 greatest films list is primarily compiled by using over 6000 individual critics' and filmmakers' best-films-of-all-time lists/ballots. The resulting list is very diverse and spans virtually all movie-producing decades and countries.
The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films list serves as a companion to the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? 1,000 Greatest Films of all time list which, - by its nature - tends to have very few films from the 21st century in it. The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films list attempts to highlight and honour this century's most critically revered films and act as a sort of 'resting bay' for many great films that are likely to be included in the 1,000 Greatest Films list sooner or later.
Celebrating the cinematically surreal, bizarre, cult, oddball, fantastique, strange, psychedelic, and the just plain WEIRD!
The All-Time Worldwide Box office list includes the 1,000 most grossing movies at the box office during their theatrical runs. Only theatrical box office receipts (movie ticket sales) are included, video rentals, television rights and other revenues are thus ignored. The total may include theatrical re-release receipts. Figures are not adjusted for inflation.
The 500 movies in this list have been selected by a combination of 10,000 Empire readers, 50 critics and 150 of Hollywood's finest.
The idea behind The New Cult Canon is to take a fresh look at the new generation of cult movies that have sprung up in the last two decades, although some olders movies are also included into the list. The list is authored by Scott Tobias.
The most favorite movies on the iCheckMovies.com website, based on the movies' favorites/checks ratio. By looking at the ratio, unknown gems don't necessarily get overpowered by more well-known movies. For the exact formula, see the movies and lists section in the FAQ.
Horror is one of the most readily dismissed genres from critics and film buffs, yet is, arguably, the genre with the most avid and steadfast niche following and remains popular with the general public. With horror films aiming to terrify, spook, shock, disturb, repulse, amuse, entertain and more, it's no wonder the genre is so varied, divisive and controversial.
With so many people ignoring or simply not understanding horror, many great films slip under the radar and are relatively unknown to an audience outside of hardcore horror fans. In order to counteract this and bring awareness to the greatness of the genre, this list was created.
Compiled using 2,614 lists taken from various critics/polls/magazines/books/websites/forums/horror fans, They Shoot Zombies, Don't They? is intended to be the ultimate canonical top 1000 horror list. Spanning several decades, countries and sub-genres, and using lists from a wide range of people and publications, the resulting list is quite a diverse spread and representation of the best of horror.
These are all of the shorts on at least 1 official iCM list (not counting the IMDb list), sorted by runtime.

This list is the result of heated debate/scuffles between the frazzled writers of Total Sci-Fi. In addition to settling on the titles themselves, they also had to set the limits of what counts as a 'sci-fi film': they decided that superhero movies were out as that's a distinct genre all of its own, but comedies like Sleeper and Galaxy Quest possess enough genuine science fiction concepts to warrant inclusion, leading to this list of the 100 best Sci-Fi movies of all-time.
Movies with 20 or more rated reviews at Rotten Tomatoes are eligible for inclusion in this list. Although the list is currently skewed toward the more recent movies, this may change in the future.
To kick things off on their list of 1000 Essential noirs, TSPDT offered up the first 100 of the 1,000 films. These 100 films have been identified, according to their research, as the most mentioned/cited noir films of all-time. Call them the 100 most essential or quintessential, or whatever you like. They are, simply put, the 100 films that most often show up on film noir lists, in film noir festivals, and/or in film noir publications.
We at Icheckmovies have made these most essential noirs a separate list which you can find here. The rest of the list can be found here [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/tspdt+1000+noir+films/]TSPDT 1000 Noir Films[/url]

Begun in 2007, Doubling the Canon is an annual project which aims to expand the Film Canon as crafted by the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They website. Originally it was a selection of 1000 movies to complement the [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/they+shoot+pictures+dont+theyquestion/]TSPDT Top 1000[/url], now it is a list of 1,000-1,250 which complements both the all time Top 1000 and the companion [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+21st+centurys+most+acclaimed+films/]TSPDT Top 1000 of the 21st century[/url].
This project is compiled and voted on by cinephiles from around the globe every year, originally at Imdb's Classic Film Board and currently at [url=http://www.icmforum.com/]icmforum.com[/url], in the months after the posting of that year's TSPDT list.
Every September, members of the [url=http://www.icmforum.com/]ICM Forum[/url] vote for the top 500 films with fewer than 400 checks on iCM (at the time of voting). Films released in the current or previous year are ineligible.

2020 update added a new restriction of one film per director, but other films that would have made the list without that restriction can be seen in the subtitle for each main entry in the source.
This list presents the all time box office top grossing movies, but adjusted for ticket price inflation. Inflation-adjustment is mostly done by multiplying estimated admissions by the latest average ticket price. Where admissions are unavailable, adjustment is based on the average ticket price for when each movie was released (taking in to account re-releases where applicable).
