Using the average scores from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes (Critic & Users), Metacritic (Critic & Users) and Letterboxd, as well as data from iCheckMovies and IMDb, I was able to come up with the 1001 GREATEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME.

So over the past few months I have been carefully creating a system using the most popular movie rating systems available online, as well as general movie data, to determine the greatest movies of all time.

I started off by gathering ratings from IMDB (User/Critic Average), Rotten Tomatoes (Tomatometer, Critic Average, Audience Score, User Average), Metacritic (Critic Average, User Average) and Letterboxd (User Average). I was then able to determine a rating (out of 10) for each individual rating and therefore come up with an average rating for each site. Each site’s average rating was then weighted fairly so that no site’s ratings were favored above the rest.
The next step was to make sure that each film was treated fairly. Other top movie list’s like IMDb’s Top 250 removes films that have under a certain viewing number (25,000 I think), but rather than ruling out films that may have been overlooked by the general audience (especially older films), I opted to alter these films score by carefully deducting points depending on how many people have seen it, and therefore voted on it. I also thought it was needed to make sure that recent films (released within the past 36 months) were also not favored, as it usually takes 3 years for the average rating to settle down. So I also added a deduction to these films that fell under this rule.

This process took a lot of tweaking to get right, but I am more than happy with the final result. Hopefully you all are to.

NOTE: As I went over Reddit’s maximum character limit trying to show you the full 1001 movie list, I have opted to show you the first 250 movies.

You can find the full 1001 Movie list in the following online lists, as well as a list outlining the available films on NETFLIX (US):

iCheckMovies: 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time
Letterboxd: 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time
IMDb: 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time
Letterboxd: Available films on NETFLIX (US) Apparently 958/1001 (Not sure how reliable)

ANYWAY, without further ado, I present you the 250(of 1001) Greatest Movies of All Time:

TIFU by telling my 4y/o I need a new girlfriend!

I'm a single guy and whenever my daughter asks what I want as a present, I always say she should bring me back a pretty girlfriend. It's like a running joke with her usual response being "she better not be prettier than me"

Anyway I was recently really ill with tonsilitis. Like the most ill I've ever been as an adult, and after a week of it I decided to go to the docs to get some antibiotics.

We're the waiting room of the surgery and daughter is reading through the magazines. She's holding up pictures of different women asking me "how bout that one Dad? or that one, or that one" I'm like "what for?" thinking she means hairstyles. She comes and whispers in my ear "for a new girlfriend" (bless her).

I tell her magazine people are not real and she needs to find me a real person to be my girlfriend. And that I would be really silly if I cut one of them out, put it in my pocket and told everyone that she was my girlfriend!

While we're having this stupid conversation a large elderly woman shuffles across the waiting room and sits opposite us. She remarks about daughter and how cute & well behaved she is....daughter looks at her, then at me, then back at her and says, as loud as anything....

"YOU CAN'T HAVE HER AS YOUR GIRLFRIEND, SHE EATS TOO MUCH!!!"

...before I had even processed what she just said, the stunned silence was broken by people giggling in the background, and the woman just "hmmphd" and turned away before I could apologise. ( I did say sorry)
