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.
Since some of the key collaborators of the AV Club Film moved on to create The Dissolve it has become one of the most important sources for online reviews (at least for me).
There is a award called "Essential" marking those films, that are the most important at the time. In addition the ranking system goes from zero to five stars. This list contains all movies reviewed for their theatre release getting four or more stars.
In Christmas 2010 Empire released a special collector's Edition chronicling all the movies in which they had reviewed and given a five star rating (the highest rating). 69 movies from the 80s were given this honor and the list displays which ones.
