Top Ranked 1000 Films, 2011 Edition



New Top Ranked 1000 Films on the Net
All Polls Combined (Updated July 11, 2011)
© William Lawrence Sinclair

For this new addition, we updated the lists from the internet that are kept updating constantly in real-time, as well as adding a new major film site's fan list of favorites, the first 1000 films there.

[This July update removed some dupes listed in both English and their native language - a BIG thanks to Alison Zemell of Canada for spotting those and letting me know. I had found about 20, she found a dozen I missed. This resulted in a few films moving up in the 1000, notably Children of Paradise, An Actor's Revenge, Fellini's Satyricon, and Godard's dreadful A Woman Is a Woman.. actually, 3 of these 4 bored me into a vegetative trance, and I haven't seen the other one - dare I risk it, lol?)

We will follow this post with more posts of new additions, deletions, biggest movers (up and down), top ranked films from 2009 and 2010 [note: this is now done, on the Top Ranked Films of the Decade: 2000-2010], as this was last done thru 2008 only.

For an alphabetical list of all 2243 films that scored, click here



I also expanded the post to 1200 titles, cuz I liked three near the bottom, Cold Comfort Farm, Winged Migration, and The Namesake, the latter two among just 40 perfect 10s I've given at 1000 Dvds to See (out of 780 ratings).

Note: about 15 short films were removed, including two more on this update (Un Chien Andalou, at 216; A Trip to the Moon, at 461, the 1902 silent short, now remastered in full color. These are good films but neither is anywhere close to feature length, so someone is including a few oranges in the boatload of apples).

This looks a little bit like List of the greatest films of all time. However, that one is based on critics' and directors' opinions.

Jose Sinclair said...

Your link says "based on the Sight and Sound poll", which is only 10 films and has NEVER had any film at #1 except Citizen Kane.. that's a critics poll that is taken only ONCE PER DECADE.. our poll is based on ALL other polls, some of which (Internet Movie Database, Metacritics) are dynamic and constantly updating..

In my opinion, the Sight and Sound poll is one of the most useless ever created.. they should update it at least once a year, and also add new titles occasionally..

There's a problem with each individual poll, but by compiling a compendium in Excel of ALL polls, we hope to include both critics and fan choices in our list, which I think represents "the best of all polls"..

.. Jose ..

Jose Sinclair said...

ps- the "newest" film on the Sight and Sound poll is Godfather II from 1974! Did good films cease being made after that?

Anonymous said...

It'd be nice to have an excel sheet of this massive list so that we could then download and sort via multiple criteria.. ex. sort by year or by director. Great list!

Jose Sinclair said...

I have an Excel sheet of these - a director list is coming up.. I didn't want to post all the different sorts all at once.. After I breakout a few more countries, I'll post a director one.. I did that last time (2009), also compiled all director rankings based on their overall film totals - Hitchcock was #1, Stanley Kubrick #2 (with far fewer films).. it won't change much, Kurosawa will rise some, as he should - he should be top 3 for sure, imo..

look for the upcoming posts! thnx for the comments!!

Wat

257. Lost in Translation (2003) Coppola, Sofia [395]
258. Cabaret (1972) Fosse, Bob [281]
259. Children of Men (2006) Cuaron, Alfonso [459]
260. Big Lebowski, The (1998) Coen, Ethan and Joel [386]

Jose Sinclair said...

not sure WAT is the question.. the number in [brackets] was the previous ranking two years ago in 2009, when I first did this compendium in a spreadsheet. Three of these four films you listed have risen since then, with Children of Men jumping 200 places; Cabaret has fallen a little.

I was always confused by the high ranking of Lebowski, I find it among the non-compelling Coen Bros efforts, maybe I need to watch it again, but I'd rather see about 10 other of their films..

thanks for the movie list.

I've started a list of my own favorite films.

Yes, of course I've seen Forrest Gump.. to me, it makes fun of slow, stupid people who may have a handicap like Down syndrome, so it actually made me angry.. it's a nice fable but I don't like humor based on people with an obvious affliction.. I'm surprised with its popularity and that no one else ever mentions this..

I thought the romance w Robin Wright Penn was also out of character w the rest of the film, so it detracted.

It was well done, but offensive to me.. it's also way too long, it's not a subject for an epic like a historical bio (Lawrence of Arabia, The Last Emperor), it's a comedy and should be shorter

two films ar actually missing here: "Distant Voices, Still Lives" and "House of Sand and Fog"

Jose Sinclair said...

Lado- Distant Voices Still Lives is here, ranked #856.. House of Sand and Fog did not make any polls and is not ranked, not even in my complete list of 2280 films - it was a good film, most likely just a bit too abstract and depressing to make the polls

thoughts on Marty, Soldier Blue, and Ordinary People ?

Jose Sinclair said...

Of those 3 films mentioned, I would probably rank Marty.. not the other two..

I miss Steven Kubrick/Spielberg's brilliant and thoughtful 'Artificial Intelligence (2001)' on this list...especially if it can contain a movie like 'Pirates of...'and...Inland Empire ???!! Everything else is great. For me 'Artificial Intelligence' is the most realistic Sci-Fi movie ever made.

Missing:
The Stunt Man by Richard Rush (1980)
Best in Show, Christopher Guest, 2000
Pleasantville, Gary Ross (1998)

I agree with Anon.. if it was up to me and not the polls, I would have all three of these on here.. they are all on my own top 1000.. I have all three films in my personal collection.. - Jose

José Sinclair said...

Remember - this is not my personal list, it's the result of adding all the polls together.. Artificial Intelligence is a worthy SF film, a film in the planning by Kubrick when he died, so Spielberg used Kubrick's production notes to complete the film himself.. Perhaps not exactly what either would have ended up with, but still a major SF film worth seeing - Jose

This is an offensive list! There are some very good titles indeed, but some of the most poignant films are not even listed! What about probably the best and for sure the most innovative American movie of the 1960's WB's "Petulia" starring the formidable Julie Christie? And, also, talking about Christie, where's "Shampoo" by Ashby? That was one of the most famous movies of the 1970's and one of the most accomplished! And Polanski's "Cul de sac"? Skolimosky's masterpiece "Deep End", Antonioni's unforgettable "Red Desert" (and the much weaker "The passenger"is listed? Oh,my!)Where's Alejandro Jodorowsky's work? Or Truffaut's? Godard? Medem?

I find it odd that Rollerball is nowhere on this list at all.

Remy said...

I know this isn't your personal list, but I find some of the placements quite shocking. Breathless only at 159, and L'Avventura only at 183. Both those films tend to be top 50 regulars, so I'm surprised they were placed so low by your calculations. And neither Rules of the Game or Tokyo Story made the top 50 either. I guess I just assumed that if you simply averaged all the lists found in the internet it would more closely mirror the list over at They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?

José Sinclair said...

What hurt CLASSIC films, like Breathless and especially L'Avventura (which is top 25 for me) were the FAN polls - they are high on critics polls, but fans put Godfathers, Leone, Hitch, Lucas, Spielberg, etc at the top and forget true cinematic art - I think Kurosawa & Kubrick are the best directors (the more you see of Kurosawa's early BW films, the more he rises, esp STRAY DOG and HIGH & LOW) -- Jose

José Sinclair said...

REMEMBER, this is a combination of ALL the film polls I could find.. which included IMDB, a fans list (but not Netflix, dunno what their list is - it always has Sandra Bullock at the top and doesn't appear to be based on averages, or GOODNIGHT MR. TOM would be the #1 film and it's not even on the list).. I would list all the polls I used but some may say "remove ours without our permission" or some such nonsense, though all were published for the public..

I agree that classic art gets ignored by the public, and some garbage sneaks in (I cannot fathom the popularity of Rocky- it's not even in my top 10 boxing films, which include Raging Bull, Cinderella Man, Requiem For a Heavyweight, all much better art and drama, YO!

"Your results may vary" - with any list, LOL..

we don't make up this stuff, we just add it up in Excel -- JMAN
