    I agree, but I swear one that was rated above 8.0, isn't in it.
    I believe it's only the votes from regular voters that count.

    I've seen films which have high eight scores before, yet because the votes are only in the triple figures, they're non-existent to the eyes of many.

    I've seen 113/114 or something it chagnes sometimes. And most of those that I have seen on the list are actually good.

    I guess people on here just like movies xD

    I obviously enjoyed The Shawshank Redemption. And my favourite from the whole list must be Avengers Assemble. But the film that caught my attention most would be Warrior. Really good. Good acting seeing as Tom Hardy is from London. And the fights were very thrilling.
    Huge MMA fan and I thought Warrior was tripe. I was so disappointed with it. Couldn't connect with any of the characters, the actor playing his brother was a poor choice, unrealistic fight scenes and a bad ending. I expected so much and it delivered nothing.

    Then stick to watching MMA...

    Seriously when has a sports film ever lived up to expectations about the sport. I really loved The Blind Side, but that wasn't really about football was it?

    I'm surprised, more than I thought I'd have watched :')
    (Original post by Pandora.)

    A lot more are on my to watch list, so I'm pretty happy with that.

    I think someone might need to take over the thread, because with AGI gone no one can update the first post.

    Update:



    And wow Pandora, what do you do if you don't watch films? And even though you've only seen 19, a third of yours I haven't!!!!
    (Original post by 'Shadowplay')


    I barely watch films anymore. And I can't take a list with Harry Potter and PotC but no Mulholland Drive seriously.

    (Original post by robo donkey)


    Not too shabby, surprised to see some in there, lol at how low Avatar's gone
    (Original post by philistine)


    I refuse to see the rest on the list. I can say with a decided confidence that my viewing experience won't change from seeing Ratatouille, The Princess Bride or Three Idiots.

    I started following the official? list on icheckmovies.com; the IMDb Top 100. I've seen about 400 from there, and it's definitely a lifetime achievement kinda thing.

    I was almost able to pull myself off the bottom of the list but The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has not been added to this list despite having a score of 8.1 on IMDB which is enough to get it on there :emo:
    I bring good news... you're no longer bottom. :pierre:Dalek1099 has taken your crown.

    So is that why some of the ratings are slightly different when you go on the individual pages? I always thought it was because it wasn't updated or something.

    And how many votes is regular? I've done 297, maybe 298 now, check ins and same ratings. Surely that's regular?

    I posted a while back that you need around 1300 ratings to be a 'regular' voter so you need to watch a lot of films!

    You're saying that there are over 700,000 people who have watched more than 1300 films, voted for more than 1300 films and voted for The Shawshank Redemption?

    Surely this is ridiculous? There's no way...

    Provided I voted for every film I had watched, I could easily be a member of that group. The problem is, I never do.

    I should really start doing that.

    The number of ratings for a film is for EVERYONE, so yes 700,000 people rated Shawshank.

    But the actual rating of the film is determined by regular raters/voters so several thousand at most.

    Oh right. Thanks. So I'm not a regular voter? Are you? And I've been reading about it on the website, where they say that they will not disclose it, so how do you know?

    Also, instead of worrying so much about people rating certain films even though they haven't watched it, couldn't they just use the votes from people who have checked in those films, and written comments?

    But you don't know how many votes are actually needed. JClive says it's 1300, and maybe I'm mistaken, but somewhere I saw the number 3000. But forget that.

    Can't wait for The Dark Knight Rises!

    3,000 would be ridiculous...

    I'm just over 1,000 now, I've probably seen a lot more just randomly on TV that I forgot and didn't vote on, by 3,000 is just wow.

    Yeah that's why I said don't listen to me. I personally think it shouldn't be more than 500, because you have to be a serious film watcher to be even bothered to come to this site that much.

    Also, my bloody link still says 34!??!?! Click on it!

    36 - not sure why it's saying not found :unsure:

    Much more than I expected :lol: Mostly simply due to having brothers who put several of those films on...
