Personal Comments

And thus the before trilogy enters into our list. This is such a beautiful trilogy. I have never met anyone who didn't love this trilogy. It's a romance like none other. So heartfelt, so real, so gripping despite it being mostly only just dialogues and nothing else much. Richard Linklater is a genius and his genius shows through in this film and the entire trilogy. 
This is also only the second film on the list yet to have been certified fresh 100% on rotten tomatoes after rear window. I wonder if we'll have any other.
None of the films from the series made it onto our previous list as nobody had watched it yet. A lot of us saw it this time though, and lo and behold it's here. 
Did any other film from the trilogy make it onto the list? Let's see.

And the next part follows! Infact not only are the two films ranked to each other on the list, they have the same total points, were in the same number of lists and there average rank only differs by .33. And here's why - these were ranked next to each other on all 3 of the lists they were in. 43 and 44 in mine, 19 and 20 in Pavan's and 23 and 22 in Ayush's. As can be seen through my ranking of these films, I think that the second part is better than the first one, though only marginally. I'm glad to see both these parts making the list. I wonder if the third part also made it somewhere.

This was quite a surprising entry into the list. I wasn't expecting this love for this Wes Anderson masterpiece. Wes Anderson is one of the best directors out there and his films are all striking in some way or the other. Take a look at Fantastic Mr Fox or Moonrise Kingdom and you'll quickly realize that this man's films are not your usual stuff. There's something trademark wes anderson about all of his films. Anyways, glad to see such a film making it this high, It is indeed a great film that manages to grip the audience throughout its runtime.

The third film from 2015 makes it's appearance. One more to go. This is the film that trumps Big Short and Spotlight. I liked this film but never understood the massive love for it. Regardless people loved this all over the world and this won quite a few awards including some Oscar nominations.

This is a film where the critics and audience's opinions simply don't match at all. While the critics derided it audiences loved it. In fact this is the film with lowest RT score on the list until now. It's a hopeful fantastical film that's loads of fun. Ben Stiller both starred in and directed this film and people connected with his performance. An interesting and surprising entry on our list. One more film from 2013 is about to come. The increase of 68 positions from last year is the largest yet. This film received one top 5 vote, from Saiyyam

Personal Comments

Another Paul Thomas Anderson film graces our list. Another great film from a modern genius. This film features Daniel Day Lewis, one of the greatest actors of all time, in probably his best acting role. Daniel's performance as the ruthless Daniel Plainview is easily one of the greatest acting performances in the history of English cinema. Absolutely engrossed into his role, as always. A must watch for all fans of cinema.

La La land also suffers from recency bias's removal. It made it upto rank 25 last time but could only get this far now. The film is kinda mesmerizing in the first watch but loses its magic over time. Let's see how far this goes the next time round. This is the last film from 2016. 2 films released after this are still remaining in the list though

This film would have usually been in the top 20 of any such list, easily. But the film doesn't enjoy it's classic status here in India. Another Spielberg film makes it onto our list, as was expected. The guy just knows how to churn out these classics. The first part of one of the greatest adventure films ever. Let's see if any other Spielberg or Indiana Jones film makes it.

And another classic follows. Finally we have another animated film on our list. Oh and what a film. Easily one of the greatest and most iconic films of all time. A film that I'm sure we all saw and fell in love with in our childhood. We are getting a live action adaption the next year. Let's hope it doesn't ruin this unparalleled classic for us.
This also saw a 12 point jump over the previous one. The biggest yet. Let's see if any other animated film manages to outrank this one.

Another classic. Tom Cruise makes his debut on the list with one of his most loved films. This film still holds up so many years after it was released. It did drop quite a bit from last year though when it reached as high as rank 17 with a 1st and a 2nd rank vote. It didn't receive any top 10 vote this time
Will tom cruise make it back onto our list?

Among the greatest war films of all time, this one. Watch it to see an unbelievable rendering of what war is.

Now, before we get to the top 50 here are some burning questions that still remain

Try to predict the answers all of you. Let's see who gets the most right - 

1. Right now we have 7 directors who have had more than one of their movies in the top 100, all with 2. Those are - 

Alfred Hitchcock (Rear Window-92, Vertigo-67), Nolan (Insomnia-74, Batman Begins-63), Martin Scorsese (The Departed-91 and Wolf of Wall Street-52), Paul Thomas Anderson (The Master-95, There Will be Blood-57), Richard Linklater (Before Sunrise-62 and Sunset-61), Ridley Scott (Gladiator-93, Martian-59) and Spielberg (Jurassic Park-67 and Raiders of the Lost Ark-55).

So the question is - who amongst these is gonna end up as the one with the highest number of movies in the top 100? Or is someone else gonna come in and outnumber them all? 

2. Also, we have had a part of 2 different trilogies show up on our list - Dark Knight (Begins at 63) and Before (Sunrise at 62, Sunset at 61) will any of these have their remaining parts feature in the top 50 and thus achieve the feat of having all of their parts in the top 100? Or will any other series show up with all of its parts in the top 50 itself? No series has more than 3 parts in the top 100.
MCU has also had 2 parts show up yet, Guardians 1 and Avengers 1. Will they have another in the top 50?

3. Also, coming to the subject of series, Harry Potter hasn't had had any part in the top 100 yet. It has had 2 of it's parts revealed between 232- 151 though. Deathly Hallows 2 at 199 and Chamber of secrets at 156. As I've already said, 7 of the 8 parts made it to our overall list. Did any of the remaining 5 make it to the top 50 or did they all place between 150-101? And which is the one that couldn't make it to the list at all?

4. We have had 2 B$ films on the list yet. Jurassic with 1029m and Avengers with 1518m. Will any film in the top 50 be joining this exclusive club? And more importantly will any film trump the latter to become the highest grossing Film on the list?

5. Also, of the 12 Hindi film's on the list, 4 are still remaining. Of the 13 Japanese films, 6 are remaining. Of the 26 animated films, 10 are still left. Will any film from any of the categories make it to the top 50 or will they all be out in the 150-100 range?

Btw before we begin with the top 50, here are some stats and facts - 

Of the 50 films 24 are from before 2000. That's almost half of them!  

The Oldest film is from 1942 and it's on more than 1 list. 

The average year of the films in the top 50 is 1996.

There are 2 films from the previous two years including only one from 2018

Also, there is still a film from every decade from 1940s to 2010s. More than one from all of them but two. 
Interesting fact - There are 3 times as many movies from the 70s as from the 80s.

We have 12 films from the 2010s and 12 from the 80s and before.

I guess Nolan will make it .
Harry potter and the half blood Prince I guess .
Plus Grave of the fireflies will definitely be in the top 50
The Dark knight hands down will make it too .

Personal Comments

This is the second film to be put on top by somebody.
The most surrealistic and Mind-Blowing film on the list, I'm not kidding. Sadly this was only put in by two people, Rveant and me. Revant put it on top and I at 12. Its average rank of 6.5 is the joint 2nd best on the list, excluding films that were put on only one list. That's how good this film is!! Not many people know of this, that's the only problem. Watch this all of you, honestly. You guys definitely won't regret it!! Just read that synopsis up above. This film is as epic as it gets, believe me.

Critic Reviews 

Never mind that several characters seem to gain or lose British accents throughout the course of the film. The lack of continuity only enhances the sense of deliciously dizzying disequilibrium.

This big-budget English-language co-production shows that Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king.

This was the last film to be only on 2 lists. All the remaining films now were on 3 lists or more!

Personal Comments

And thus we have Kubrick's second film to grace our list. He joins the list of directors with 2 films on the list. Yet to see someone get to 3 movies. 
A film about a gang of hyper violent citizens in a dystopian future, this film is bound to make your heads swirl. A film worth a watch, or maybe 5. This is another of Kubrick's masterpieces and this deserves its place here. Nice to see the film make it this far

Critic Reviews 

A much-maligned and misunderstood classic, this is one of Kubrick's finest movies. Full review

Kim Newman
Empire

"A Clockwork Orange" has earned the title of "cult classic," and rightfully so. Full review
