Top 100 Films

by the Internet Movie DataBase (IMDb)

Top 100 Films: The highly-respected site The Internet Movie Database asked its registered users to rank and rate films for their Top 250 Films survey.

Below are the top 100 films from the results of their weighted, unscientific poll, tabulated in mid-2010's decade.

Facts and Commentary About the List:

  • The films are provided as a comparative measure with the Greatest Films Lists on this site.
  • This list of films reflects changing trends with a strong, heavily-weighted bias toward current hits, more recent releases, and personally popular films.
  • Every few months, the list contains more and more top grossing, box-office smashes, familiar and current films that have become the latest craze, and other hits that have had tremendous exposure through expensive ad campaigns.
  • Unfortunately, as newly-released blockbusters fill up the top slots, many of the most-acclaimed classics from Hollywood's Golden Age are pushed lower and lower in the list's ratings of popularity. There are some astounding omissions in this list, and some equally-astonishing entries.
Note: The films that are marked with a yellow star are the
films that "The Greatest Films" site has selected as the "100 Greatest Films"
