IMDB has released a great video compilation of their top rated 250 films in only 2½ minutes. Here's a little note from the creator.
This is one incredible list of films/movies. If Peter Weyland wanted David to learn about cinema while the crew of Prometheus was still in hyper sleep, he'd probably have him go down the IMDB Top 250. This list does change infrequently, and I began the project over a month prior to November 1, 2012, so attention to my haters...Yes...I KNOW some of these movies are not on the top 250. 53 Titles to be exact (as of 11/1/12). However, none of my haters can tell me that any of these 303 titles do not exist on IMDB.b
From what I can gather, each film that makes it on the list has to have a rating of at least 8/10 on IMDB. After all this is a democracy, so each film does appear because of a substantial amount of votes. However, I couldn't put "The Avengers" in without "Ferris Bueller", and I wasn't going to let "Scarface" slide if "Bringing Out The Dead" wasn't in there too.
How many of the movies shown in this video do you think you've seen?
