Rankings

Here is a page devoted fully to lists... highest grossing movies, most awarded movies, all-time favorite movies, etc. (Some of these lists are subject to change) I think these lists will show just how disparate opinions about films can be and how there is no formula to empirically prove one movie is better than another. In the end, it's all a matter of opinion and yours is ultimately the most important one.
