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.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results with general film data from iCheckMovies (incl. # of Official Top Lists) and IMDb to reveal the 1001 'Greatest' Movies of All Time.
A personal list with relatively short films (under 80 minutes) on official lists, that seem to be available online and in many cases have YouTube links in the comments on ICM. For that purpose I made the list [i]public[/i] and will try to add recent links to anything I come across for other users to enjoy.
Keep in mind that this is no best of as I haven't even seen these films. Nor does it aim to be complete since for practical purposes I delete movies as soon as I've seen them. But feel free to check some short movies while they're here ;-)
That means that in the end there will only be a handful of 80 minutes movies left. Not exactly shorts, I know. But then the list will have fulfilled it's purpose.
For more shorts see:
The Telegraph newspaper (UK) published this list over 2nd and 3rd March 2013. It is framed as a mix of individual top lists and genre specific top lists. Due to a mistake, Out of the Past appeared twice within the same subcategory meaning there are only 499 films.
All the films that receives ★★★★ out of ★★★★ in "Bonniers stora filmguide" are presented in this list.
"Bonniers stora filmguide" is more or less a make-Swedish version of Leonard Maltin's annual Movie Guide. Some ratings have been changed however, and the guide includes unique reviews of many Swedish and foreign films. However, almost all the American movies have the same capsule reviews and ratings as the ones you can find in Maltin's movie guide, only this time the reviews have been translated into Swedish.
Some notable Maltin ratings that's been replaced in the Bonniers version: "Taxi Driver" receives ★★★½ but Maltin only gives it ★★. "Saving Private Ryan" receives ★★ but Maltin gives it ★★★½.
There are a total of 9435 entries in Bonniers, though a handful of them are dupes or alternate versions of the same film.
Unconventional films where the characters tend to obtain peculiar characteristics, habits, mannerisms, and/or personalities.
This collection includes eccentric, bizarre, far out, idiosyncratic, odd, off-the-wall, out of the ordinary, outre, peculiar, strange, unconventional, unorthodox, unusual, wacky, way-out, and weird films.
If you like this list, please favourite it. Suggestions are welcome :)
A polling of the Criterion Collection subreddit users on their top 10 films of all time.
The users submitted their top 10 films of all time ranked, with the highest ranking film at #1 given 10 points and the lowest ranking at #10 given 1 point. The films were then ranked based on total number of points.
Poll taken in January of 2016.
This is a list of really great films that are significant in an entertaining and maybe metaphysical way. I want to make clear that this list is in no particular order and that there were a lot of titles to choose from. Some you may not heard of while others might be overrated. However, this is my list and I stand by it.
This is a list of films condemned by the Legion of Decency, a United States Catholic organization, and its successor (from 1965), the National Catholic Office for Motion Pictures. The condemned (or C) rating was issued from the time of the Legion's formation in 1933 until 1978, when the C rating and the B rating were merged into the new O ("morally offensive") rating. In 1980, the NCOMP film office was shut down, along with the biweekly Review, which had published ratings on 16,251 feature films.
The Legion's ratings were applied to movies made in the United States (which were subject to the Production Code until 1967) as well as those imported from other countries. Beginning in 1968, the ratings were applied in addition to any rating assigned by the MPAA film rating system.
Legion-organized boycotts made a C rating harmful to a film's distribution and profitability. Accordingly, for the majority of years that the rating was applied, most condemned films were made outside of the United States, where their producers didn't have as much to fear from the condemnation. Of the 53 movies the Legion had placed on its condemned list by 1943, only Howard Hughes' The Outlaw came from a major US studio, and it had not been approved by the Production Code or distributed widely.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Elia Kazan's A Streetcar Named Desire and Billy Wilder's The Seven Year Itch did not receive C ratings. Rather, Kazan's film was cut by 4 minutes to avoid condemnation, while Wilder's film had to cut scenes from the original play to be approved by Legion of Decency. [wikipedia]
Below is a subset of Roger Ebert's list of great films containing only those in his book "The Great Movies II", published in 2005. Originally I only listed three full-length feature films in lieu of Ebert's "Buster Keaton" chapter, but I have since brought this list in line with the official iCheck version of Ebert's Great Movies. Now Buster's body of work "from 1920 to 1929" is represented by selections 18-48 below.
An excerpt from Ebert's introduction to the book:
"One of my delights in these books ... has been to include movies not often cited as 'great' ... We go to different movies for different reasons, and greatness comes in many forms."
International cinephile community A Band Apart in august of 2011 has organized voting in order to make the list of the greatest films in history of a cinema (Greatest Films Poll 2011). The sample took place with the participation of 125 film critics, bloggers, journalists and several directors from 18 countries of the world (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia, Estonia, USA, Canada, Indonesia, Philippines, India, Brazil, UK, Greece, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Netherlands and France). The wide geography of composers has provided a variety of tastes and opinions. In the final list there are presented 130 films from 17 countries and four parts of the world. In the top-list there are mentioned all decades, since 1920's. Also there is maintained balance between English-speaking and non-English-speaking films. All individual lists of participants can be looked here.
The first place in the top-list has taken by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which outstripped in the general offset Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. Top-5 has completed with Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker and Ingmar Bergman’s Persona. The best film of 21 century by quantity of mentions has turned out to be David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. (6th place).
The oldest film of the list has appeared to be a silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), and the newest – 2011 Palme d'Or winner Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life. The list included 7 films of Stanley Kubrick, 5 films of Ingmar Bergman and Andrei Tarkovsky, 4 films of David Lynch, Krzysztof Kieslowski and Terrence Malick at once. On the basis of mentions, in lists has also been made top-50 of best directors. In total, by composers in their lists have been mentioned 3469 films and over 1500 directors.
The final list included at once 9 pictures of the Soviet production. Except Andrei Tarkovsky’s 4 pictures, there are Sergei Eisenstein, Elem Klimov, Larisa Shepitko, Dziga Vertov, and Mikhail Kalatozov movies at the list. Also have been mentioned films of Parajanov, Muratova, Sokurov, Aleksei German, Kozincev, Dovzhenko, Balabanov, Shaunas Bartas and other directors of the Soviet and post-Soviet cinema.
P.S. The community A Band Apart has been created in 2009 in order to popularize little-known pictures, to exchange impressions of cinema and to make top-lists of the best films. Sample of 2011 has already become the third annual. By results of the first sample in 2009, has been made the list of 59 films (the winner was Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction). By results of the second sample in 2010, has been made the list of 120 films (the winner was Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver).
Per Films de France: "Just about everybody seems to be busy compiling their Top 100 films lists these days, so we thought we’d have a go. Here are what we (humbly) consider to be the best 100 (and a bit) French films so far..."
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.
The only way to make a list of The 100 Greatest Films of All Time is to look at what has come before. So, a decision was made to review a selection of lists made by respected critics and others from around the globe. The commonality of these choices has helped form Alice's overall selection. The most famous poll since 1952 is Sight & Sound magazine's compilation, whereby every 10 years the world's leading film critics and directors are asked for their top 10 choices. Other sources utilised include the AFI (American Film Institute), the BFI (British Film Institute), the National Society of Film Critics, Cahiers du Cinema, Time, Time Out, Empire and so on. In all, 22 Top 100 lists featuring 2200 titles were cross-referenced and tweaked to arrive at this amazing collection that we feel truly represents the best that cinema can offer.

"An entirely subjective list of 100 essential fantasy films", as compiled by Jeff Kuykendall, editor of MidnightOnly.com.
"First off, this list is entirely personal. You will have 100 of your own. The intention is to draw a broad outline of fantasy films since the start of cinema in hopes that the reader might find some helpful recommendations. It’s an admittedly ludicrous endeavor to define 100 of the most essential of anything, which is why this is just “100 Essential Films of the Fantastic,” not the most essential. To pare this last down to 100, I found myself discarding many acknowledged classics, and holding tight to others for the sake of variety or my own passion for them."
MOJO's 100 greatest music films, as presented in issue #233 (April 2013). Play them loud (some of them, anyway)! The list was presented chronologically, and the original order has been preserved for this version as well.
1987's "Muddy Track", directed by Bernard Shakey, a.k.a. Neil Young, is still missing, as I can't seem to trace it in the database. Hit me up if you spot it!
October 04, 2010: For movie lovers, there are few things more exciting than the discovery of a bold new filmmaker. Through cinema history, many extraordinary directors immediately made their marks on the industry with their first feature-length films.
The Online Film Critics Society celebrates the innovations and ingenuity of these extraordinary artists by presenting its selection of the 100 Best First Feature Films of All Time. Spanning the cinematic experience from the silent era to the digital age, the OFCS writers pay tribute to the most impressive filmmaking debuts of all time.
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 ?!? :-/
