The Hastings Bad Cinema Society's Poll of the worst movies of the 20th century (in alphabetical order). Their website is now sadly defunct but the list is present on several list sites on the web, and the original is accessible using the Wayback Machine Archive.
The poll's introduction reads:
On June 16, 1998, the American Film Institute announced its choices for the 100 greatest films ever made. The group called its list 100 Years, 100 Movies. To no one’s surprise, just about everybody in America disagreed with the titles on the list. Anybody can make a list of great movies. We [The Bad Cinema Society] thought it would be helpful if a group had the guts to put together a list of the all-time worst films. So, about a month after the AFI announcement, the Hastings Bad Cinema Society announced that it too would be making an "end of the century" list, but the 100 movies it planned to "honor" would all be stinkers.
Each year's top 10 lists between 1956-1965 that been published in Cahiers du Cinema when Godard worked there as a movie critic, plus "Ten Best American Sound Films" and "Six Best French Films since the Liberation" lists. In 1962, Godard included his own film "Vivre sa Vie", the only movie by Godard in this list, in his top ten list as number six.
Patricia Aufderheide's list from 'Documentary Film: A Very Short Introduction' - part of the highly regarded series from Oxford University Press.
"These documentaries have been widely seen and discussed, and have been in many cases at the center of controversies; in other cases they have provided valuable teaching resources. They are all accessible for renting or buying for your private collection. You can use the index in this book and other books mentioned in the references, imdb.com, your local library, Netflix, Google, and the Library of Congress to find out more about why these films have attracted attention and esteem. Viewing this collection will set you up nicely with a context to watch your latest favorite, argue with the list, and build your own top one hundred."
Taking Pictures (1996) (http://aso.gov.au/titles/documentaries/taking-pictures/)
It is always a challenge to produce a definitive list of “must- see” movies, because value judgments are, by definition, extremely subjective. However, the 100 handpicked films in this section have delighted, moved or educated audiences of all ages, all over the world. Over the last nine decades, these films have changed our perceptions of cinema, and most have left an indelible mark on film history.
A list created during the turn of the 100-year anniversary of Indian cinema. It was a painstaking process, and a lot of research was done to give this list an objective feel. The list is based off AFI's list of 100 Greatest American Films and Johnathan Rosenbaum's Alternative 100. Films of all Indian languages are present, from Hindi to Marathi to Tamil to Telugu, to even Assamese. Three major criteria were considered for this list, in order of priority:
1. Cultural/artistic impact on India and the world - most important
2. Critical acclaim in India and abroad - 2nd most important
3. Popularity/cult status - 3rd (and least) important
Based on the book by Andrew Heritage. Over 1,500 key movies are referred to in this book, but only the 100 main entries are to be found on this list.
11-20: Action & Adventure
21-30: Romance & Melodrama
41-50: Thrillers & Crime
81-90: Fantasy, Sci-fi & Horror
Basically as it's name say's, my personal favourite 100 movies. I can't decide enough to put them in order, maybe i will edit it at a later date though ;-)
N.B. Would also like to add that the films '9' and 'IT' were in my original 100 but the site would not let me include them for some strange reason...
I'd also like to point out this list took around 7 or 8 attempts of searching 100 movies 1 by 1 and adding them for it not to save afterwards, very annoying and time consuming, this will be my only list until a new way of making them is added, sort it out ICM ?!? :-/

Note that this list is not complete as we have presented a bunch of films, especially shorts, that doesn't have an imdb entry.
Michael Wood's list from 'Film: A Very Short Introduction' - part of the highly regarded series from Oxford University Press.
"The following list is not arbitrary, since there is substantial agreement about the importance of these works. But it leaves out a large number of very good films, and I offer it to readers only as a set of suggestions, chances of exciting journeys in the world of cinema and the cinema of the world."
The list is based on personal toplists of film enthusiasts from the Netherlands. It is intended as a source of inspiration for viewers who long for a cinema that provides them another view on the world from around the world. The films have a particular style, distinctly different from Hollywood, which mainly consists of: plotlessness, wordlessnes, slowness and openess (for interpretation). In the films the surroundings, which can be both rural or urban, are as important a subject as are the protagonists.
I've devised the 'A Year of Essential Cinema' list as direct response to 'A Story of Film: An Odyssey' back in 2012 as a way of catching up with the recognised film canon. Since 2012 my knowledge of film and the breath of cinema I have consumed has magnified ten fold and I can't thank Mark Cousins enough for encouraging me to delve deeper.
I devised a 2nd part some time ago and I kept to the same formula, tackling films chronologically and from a wide source of film movements, countries and directors.
This list is a guide only and a dedicated viewer could easily watch them all within the year allocated. For me this list is become an enjoyable experience that guides rather than dictates my viewing, I love the breath that cinema offers and without taking in all it offers I feel one will never truly understand the full wonder of the medium,
