atheenah did this

imdb has a list of the 250 films people has given the highest votes (as in a popularity vote, kinda), and these are the ones of them I've seen.. some with comments.
The ones in italics is movies I've got on VHS/DVD, but haven't actually seen yet.
The bold ones is movies I'd reckommend..

Obviously a list like this isn't at all fair.. David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick, Hitchcock has a lot of films here, and of course.. they're "good", but.. think they get higher votes than they deserv at times, because they're more likely to be favorites with the ones bothering to vote, as well as having an image as "Great directors", and that way.. one tends to give them higher votes than they deserv at times.. It's a touch of... the directors we love to love.
Of course.. new films are interesting to a lot of people etc.. I doubt that in 10 years time, "Shrek" would be considered the best animated ever done, as it is ranked on this list now..
