My List of Shame, According to IMDB Top 250

So I’m a weird blogger/critic (I’ve resigned myself to that title if you happen to use it). I love movies, but at the same there are a LOT of movies out there that I’ve yet to see. Every so often, like right now, I take a moment to note for my own personal, for lack of a better word, growth take a look at which film those are to try and remind myself where I need to focus most of my attention.

While I don’t consider it the greatest resource for what makes a movie great, currently they have The Avengers┬áin the top 50 on the list, I do use the IMDB Top 250 as a fuzzy measuring stick so as for me to see what I have and have not seen so far. I did however exclude any films released within the last five years that happened to fall in the list because those I either skipped on purpose or know I will be getting to. I just feel like a certain amount of time should pass before any movie begins to get the 100% serious “greatest movie of all time” treatment.

Anyways here’s the Top 25 of My List:

  1. Schindler’s List (1993) (#7)
  2. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) (#10)
  3. City of God (2002) (#18)
  4. City Lights (1931) (#43)
  5. M (1931) (#50)
  6. Modern Times (1936) (#53)
  7. Double Indemnity (1944) (#56)
  8. L.A. Confidential (1997) (#76)
  9. The Great Dictator (1940) (#77)
  10. Amadeus (1984) (#85)
  11. All About Eve (1950) (#87)
  12. Metropolis (1927) (#89)
  13. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) (#93)
  14. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) (#105)
  15. The Great Escape (1963) (#112)
  16. Witness for the Prosecution (1957) (#118)
  17. Wild Strawberries (1957) (#125)
