250 movies

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.

Oh a new entry for a 160 minute Indian movie that looks like it is made by children. Color me surprised.

As many have correctly stated, this list isn't every film you should ever watch, but it's a great intro to so many genres. I've watched army films and westerns (despite previously not being a fan), French films, arty films, Iranian dramas, Italian comedies and new Zealander fantasies, all because of this list. Even 3 Idiots, which if you ignore all the lazy anti-Indian comments on here, was a brilliant film. It showed a different way of storytelling, different cultures but I loved it. I'm not going to become a bollywood addict now, but I'm so glad I gave it a chance. And if I was Indian, I'd point out the 3/4 average-ish american films that get on this list every summer before dropping out of sight. Less accusations of a mafia, more just a film finding its place in the world. Chill out and watch some more movies please.

My new policy is to now only watch movies from this list that also appear on non-IMDb lists. I have accepted that I will never officially complete this, and I am okay with it.

I was so close to finish this list and then more Indian films got added. I have no intentions of watching them so I guess I'll never finish this list

I have the same problem that dyin2live has. The list here on icheckmovies doesn't match up to what is listed on imdb's website.

Did the formula suddenly change? Last I checked, I was missing 9 and now I'm missing 19, this list is a real moving target.

Edit: 8/29/16: Appears IMDB has added a new list for Bollywood movies, so the problem has resolved itself. (Not sure why my initial comment got downvoted. Didn't think I said anything upsetting.)

icheckmovies should change the description of this IMDB list to read "this is a list by and for the Indian people".

Welcome to India. Nope, not going to see them.

Weird list. So many movies not from India. Should be fixed.

This list is irrelevant in so many ways, but the nationality sandbagging (I'm looking at you, India) is particularly irritating. I see the latest organized push is a 40 year old flick that all of a sudden just drops into the list at #127. What a freaking joke.

As of today, only 14 users have completed this list! I'm surprised.
(I've got 8 to go, myself, though I did have it completed last year or early this year, briefly).
