Ever felt compelled to finish lists? Check its items one by one? If you have these traits of OCD, and grocery store lists are getting boring, you should try out one (or all if you have a looot of time) of these official movie lists. There is some correlation between them, but I guarantee that each has its own advantage.
5.IMDB’s TOP 250
Consider IMDB’s TOP 250 the starter edition of movie list achievement hunters. This is the one where everyone should start with this passion. It is a great mixture of classics from every decade with almost all of them a must-watch (even for a regular movie watcher). The only downside is that it tends to change every now and then because of IMDB’s movie score algorithm.
4.Reddit’s TOP 250
The Reddit community is known to consist of multi-interested people. This is the place where movie fanatics found their home too. Pretty similar to IMDB’S list, Reddit’s TOP 250 is maybe a bit less sophisticated but much more modern.
3.Steven Schneider’s 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Steven Schneider, a former film critic created one of the most interesting movie lists ever. The 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is not only about great movies. It is about flicks that in a way changed the world or featured something new, unique. It’s sure as hell that if you finish this one, you will get a film education that no school can give you. (As years went by, it was regularly updated with new movies, so it is only a hypothetical 1001 now.)
Also, it is available in book format, for the old-school.
2.They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They?
The TSPDT list is a massive (1000 movies) list that consists of almost 2000 film critics’ and filmmakers’ personal best films of all time. However, you should prepare that most titles on this one are not for the average viewer. It is a bit alternative, one might even say that its a bit artsy.
1.The Criterion Collection
The Criterion Collection Inc. made this list by focusing on “important classic and contemporary films”. Originally a home video distribution company, Criterion is also licensing and selling these features to those who are huge fans of older films. You can even see their logo appear at the start of the most popular versions of these movies.
“You’re television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy.”
