  1. Top 250's icon

    Top 250

    Favs/dislikes: 2314:83. The IMDb top 250 is probably the most well-known movie list in the world. It has earned this reputation through the fact that it has been composed by aggregating the votes of many normal moviegoers. In other words, this is a list by and for the people and not some elite movie-critics list.
  2. Reddit top 250's icon

    Favs/dislikes: 651:12. 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.
  7. The Criterion Collection's icon

    The Criterion Collection

    Favs/dislikes: 637:4.

  18. 2000s's icon

    2000s

    Favs/dislikes: 374:19. The 2000s continued with the trend of big blockbusters, which drew in massive amounts of money with the eager audience. The fantasy genre in particular flourished due to the success of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The fallen status of Superhero movies was also revived, in large part due to successful installments in the Batman and Spider-man series. Furthermore, computer-generated animations films became a force to be reckoned with, as they garnered much praise even from the critics.
  19. Sci-fi's icon

    Sci-fi

    Favs/dislikes: 365:12. Sci-fi films are often quasi-scientific, visionary and imaginative - complete with heroes, aliens, distant planets, impossible quests, improbable settings, fantastic places, great dark and shadowy villains, futuristic technology, unknown and unknowable forces, and extraordinary monsters. Science fiction often expresses the potential of technology to destroy humankind and easily overlaps with horror films, particularly when technology or alien life forms become malevolent, as in the "Atomic Age" of sci-fi films in the 1950s.
  20. The New Cult Canon's icon

    The New Cult Canon

    Favs/dislikes: 332:4. 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.
  21. 1990s's icon

    1990s

    Favs/dislikes: 328:8. In the 90s, the belief was sustained that expensive, high-budget films with expensive special effects meant quality. However, the independently-distributed film movement was also proving that it could compete (both commercially and critically) with Hollywood's costly output. This decade also marked the advent of the home viewing of movies, in part made possible by the digital revolution that allowed movies to be greatly modified even after shooting.
  22. iCheckMovies - Most Favorite's icon

    iCheckMovies - Most Favorite

    Favs/dislikes: 317:13. 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.
  23. Cannes Film Festival - Palme d'Or's icon

    Cannes Film Festival - Palme d'Or

    Favs/dislikes: 301:3. The Cannes Film Festival, founded in 1946, is one of the world's oldest film festivals. The private festival is held annually (usually in May) in the resort town of Cannes, in the south of France. Cannes is extremely important for critical and commercial interests and for European attempts to sell films on the basis of their artistic quality. Additionally, given massive media exposure, the non-public festival is attended by many movie stars and is a popular venue for film producers to launch their new films and attempt to sell their works to the distributors who come from all over the globe.
  24. Animation's icon

    Animation

    Favs/dislikes: 299:10. Animations are not a strictly-defined genre category, but rather a film technique, although they often contain genre-like elements. Also includes claymation (use of clay objects), anime (a style of animation with its roots in Japanese comic books, usually adult-oriented sci-fi and fantasy) or CGI (computer-generated animation). Animated films are often considered kids or family-oriented films, although they may be enjoyed by all ages.
  25. Film-noir's icon

    Film-noir

    Favs/dislikes: 293:6. Film noir ('black film') is a branch of the crime/gangster sagas from the 1930s. Strictly speaking, film noir is not a genre, but rather the mood, style or tone of various American films that evolved between the 1940s and 1960s. However, film noir has re-occurred in cyclical form in other years in various neo-noirs. Noirs are usually black and white films with primary moods of melancholy, alienation, bleakness, disillusionment, disenchantment, pessimism, ambiguity, moral corruption, evil, guilt and paranoia. They often feature a cynical, loner hero (anti-hero) and femme fatale, in a seedy big city.
