IMdb's Top 250 Movies: WATCHED
by:Pox
2015/05/23
So for 2013, I set out to watch all of imdb's top250 movies as voted by the users. Of course I didn't rewatch the ones I had already seen but I did start out with 134 out of 250, meaning I still had 116 movies to watch.



For no particular reason, I have decided to rate the movies so you don't waste your time! I was pleasantly surprised by how good most of these are, even the older ones. But there's also a couple turds in there that you should avoid. I shall tell you where they are. THANK YOU, ME.

Keep in mind that my ratings are calibrated for someone who is not a douchy cinema student and therefore has an unbiased ( dare I say, perfect?) opinion of movies. If you find yourself disagreeing greatly with these ratings, it's probably time to re-evaluate your life.

RATINGS

Excellent Movie, you should watch this some time in your life.
Good movie, you will not regret watching this.
You should skip it.
This is terrible, you will suffer if you watch this.

MOVIE RATING REVIEW
1.The Shawshank Redemption (1994) Super classic movie.
2.The Godfather (1972) Boring.
3.The Godfather: Part II (1974) Better than the first, but you shouldn't watch the first anyway.
4.Pulp Fiction (1994) Forever Tarantino's Best.
5.The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) Let's just admit it: It's too long.
6.12 Angry Men (1957) Old yet super awesome.
7.The Dark Knight (2008) It's sort of ridiculous, let's get real.

109.Yojimbo (1961) Probably the best Kurosawa movie.

112.Snatch. (2000) Fuck this.
113.Inglourious Basterds (2009) Ain't that good.
114.Up (2009) I think we all know what 10 minutes of this movie put it on here.
115.On the Waterfront (1954) Does not age well.
116.The Elephant Man (1980) Kind of traumatizing
117.The Seventh Seal (1957) The least terrible Bergman movie I've seen this year.
118.Toy Story (1995) 20 years later it's not that groundbreaking...
119.Heat (1995) So many.. big names
120.The General (1926) Man that's old and weird.
121.The Maltese Falcon (1941) No one cares.
122.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) Too fucking long seriously.
123.Blade Runner (1982) I need to rewatch this.
124.Gran Torino (2008) Man Clint is so grumpy and rad.
125.Rebecca (1940) No one ever talked like this, I'm 100% sure of that.
126.Wild Strawberries (1957) So God damned pointless.
127.Fargo (1996) Blah
128.The Kid (1921) Chaplin alert. Avoid.
129.Scarface (1983) Another movie here for pop culture value.
130.The Avengers (2012) What else could you want in a superhero movie? YEAH BEAT SOME ASS.
131.The Big Lebowski (1998) Just watch this high at 2am like I never did.
132.Touch of Evil (1958) Fairly dreary detective movie by today's standards.
133.Ran (1985) Just horrible and endless.
134.The Deer Hunter (1978) I guess the russian roulette thing makes it worth watching but it's overly long...
135.Cool Hand Luke (1967) Worth a look. Paul Newman rules.
136.Sin City (2005) Style over substance eh? Still kickass. Read the comics too.
137.The Gold Rush (1925) Probably the most tolerable Chaplin movie.
138.Strangers on a Train (1951) Super awkward and crazy movie. Hitchcock was awesome.
139.No Country for Old Men (2007) Wtf is this??
140.It Happened One Night (1934) Sort of a boring comdy by today's standards but you'd like it. YOU'D LIKE IT.
141.Jaws (1975) The little Jaws jingle is better and more memorable than the actual movie.
142.Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) No idea what any of these idiots are saying or doing. Snore.
143.The Sixth Sense (1999) Ok well we kind of all know how it ends now too...
144.Platoon (1986) Some generic war movie.
145.High Noon (1952) Bucket of yuck.
146.Hotel Rwanda (2004) Yeah. I mean. Fine it's good but I just don't give a shit about Rwanda.
147.The Thing (1982) Narrowly gets the blue by being so referenced and classic. Otherwise still solid story and has aged well.
148.Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) Feels like just a bland western to me. HMM TASTE THE BLANDNESS.
149.The Wizard of Oz (1939) What the fuck is wrong with people, seriously. Do you know a lot of movies with midget dance numbers that are good?
150.Casino (1995) This is basically Goodfellahs. Watch Goodfellahs. Then watch this if you want more Goodfellahs.
151.Trainspotting (1996) I was bored out of my mind within 10 minutes. Thick Brit accents don't make a movie more enjoyable, I can't understand a word they're saying.
152.Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) Sweet sweet violence and epic soundtrack. What are you doing if you haven't seen this?
153.Warrior (2011) I predict this Rocky ripoff will slide down the list into death soon enough.
154.Annie Hall (1977) Did you ever wonder what Curb Your Enthusiasm would be like if it was a movie and supposed to be taken seriously?
155.Notorious (1946) Quite forgetable Hitchcock.
156.The Secret in Their Eyes (2009) This movie is worth it just for the ending. Kind of slow otherwise.
157.Good Will Hunting (1997) Classic movie of course but doesn't help the public's view of science...or reality...or psychology...
158.Gone with the Wind (1939) Holy fuckshit, it lasts FOUR HOURS. Felt like four YEARS.
159.The Grapes of Wrath (1940) If you've ever wondered if the depression was depressing: Yes. Yes it was.
160.The King's Speech (2010) You'll never guess how it ends. Haha. Nevertheless, compared to the rest of this list, have to give it decent marks...
161.Into the Wild (2007) Watch if you feel like not enough people treat you like an imbecile in life.
162.Life of Brian (1979) Let's face it: Monty Python is pretty dated now.
163.My Neighbor Totoro (1988) Pretty cute... but... what else??
164.Finding Nemo (2003) So bland and PC. Why was this such a blockbuster? What's wrong with people?
165.V for Vendetta (2005) It's better than the comic at least!
166.How to Train Your Dragon (2010) I like this movie. This is how animated movies for children should be done.
167.Dial M for Murder (1954) Oh Hitchcock you card you! Always inventing crazy murder plots.
168.The Big Sleep (1946) The big sleep was me watching this. GET IT? I was confused the whole time, no idea what was happening. Nor did I care.
169.Ben-Hur (1959) Such epicness.
170.The Terminator (1984) In no way does this rating reflect my bias for 80s music.
171.Network (1976) Always relevant even 40 years later. They predicted FOX news!
172.Million Dollar Baby (2004) Boo hoo.
173.There Will Be Blood (2007) So long. So boring. Squandered potential.
174.The Night of the Hunter (1955) Did not age well. At all. One of the worst Hitchcocks.
175.Stand by Me (1986) Terrible. Some lame coming of age weinerfest.
176.Donnie Darko (2001) It's decent. And weird. Pointlessly weird. But some people like that.
177.Black Swan (2010) Weird for the same of weird.
178.Groundhog Day (1993) How can you hate this? You'd be a soulless monster.
179.Dog Day Afternoon (1975) One of the best Pacino movies you've never heard of. It's so damn sweet.
180.Twelve Monkeys (1995) Time travel blahblah. When Terminator exists, you better make something damn awesome with your time machines.
181.Amores perros (2000) I guess this is good if you've never seen Pulp Fiction?
182.The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) James Bond with amnesia, basically. Doesn't it feel like you've see this movie 30 times before?
183.Mary and Max (2009) That is one depressing-ass movie. Pretty quirky and worth a watch.
184.The 400 Blows (1959) It lured me into thinking it'd go somewhere but then it ended and I flipped it the bird.
185.Persona (1966) It's like listening to the inner monologue of a 14 year old goth.
186.The Graduate (1967) SO THAT'S WHERE THAT'S FROM! Is what you will say when you watch this movie.
187.Gandhi (1982) The problem with historical movies is that you learn so little. Ok I get it, British people are super evil and the Indian way of povery and medieval mysticism is genius blabla.
188.The Killing (1956) Movie that just shows how versatile Kubrick really was.
189.Howl's Moving Castle (2004) If you're going to watch just one Miyazaki movie, I recommend this one.
190.Life of Pi (2012) It was gewd. I guesssss.
191.The Princess Bride (1987) Such a classic. Watch the fuck out of this right now.
192.8½ (1963) Sleeping pill downloaded straight into my eyes.
193.The Artist (2011/I) Yuck + Yuck = Yuck.
194.Slumdog Millionaire (2008) No one is that lucky. I hate this. >: (
195.Argo (2012) I just want to watch the movie in the plot. Come on make it.
196.Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) Like shards of glass in my brain. Who thought making this was a good idea?? Why does this exist?
197.The Hustler (1961) It's like Rocky, except will... pool...Kinda stupid if you think about it. But don't.
198.A Beautiful Mind (2001) Most of this is untrue. So. I dunno.
199.La strada (1954) Holy shit you think Schinderl's List is depressing?
200.The Manchurian Candidate (1962) I have to think at some point in history people thought this was possible.
201.Rocky (1976) AAAAAAWE YISSSSSSSSSS
202.The Wild Bunch (1969) Long. Boring. Aging cowboys shooting a bunch of things. I CARETH NOT.
203.Anatomy of a Murder (1959) I love trial movies for some reason. Jimmy Stewart is also fun because... I don't know why.
204.Stalag 17 (1953) Decent war movie. Pretty similar to The Great Escape.
205.The Exorcist (1973) I guess watch it for historical purposes if you care.
206.Sleuth (1972) Such a Hitchockiam movie with Batman's butler.
207.Rope (1948) Kind of a classic but skippable.
208.The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, plates of beans. Yah. It was decent.
209.Barry Lyndon (1975) Why have I never heard of this before?
210.District 9 (2009) Are they making a sequel to this? Bah.
211.The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) Hipsters: The Movie
212.Infernal Affairs (2002) Wait isn't this just The Departed?
213.Stalker (1979) Pure agony. Watch Cube if you want a mystery that doesn't suck.
214.Roman Holiday (1953) Man Audrey Hepburn was hot.
215.The Truman Show (1998) Classicest classic.
216.Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) Just watch this one so you don't have to watch the others.
217.Ip Man (2008) Good ole Kung Fu movies. One man against 20? Sure. Let's all attack him one at a time with girly slaps, nobody hold him down!
218.Ratatouille (2007) Why do people like this oh so predictable children's movie? Do you really want a rate to touch your food? DO YOU?
219.The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007) Horribly depressing, pointless. HE DIES AT THE END. There don't watch it.
220.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011) I understood none of this but still knew it was insulting my intelligence.
221.In the Name of the Father (1993) I never heard of this before. Pretty good Shawshank Redemption type movie.

223.A Fistful of Dollars (1964) I can't tell these apart anymore.
224.A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) Brain rape. Confusing "Interpret it like you want" type story. NO DICE!

226.Incendies (2010) Well. It's Canadian... ... bleh
227.Beauty and the Beast (1991) Yay Disney.
228.Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984) Right we get it Miyazaki, machines are evil blabla.
229.Rosemary's Baby (1968) I had my doubts but it's a pretty good movie.
230.Harvey (1950) Haha JImmy Stewart. I think this movie is a biographical piece.
231.La haine (1995) WE ARE LE FRENCH OUI OUI now here's a hamfisted social commentary. Snore. Artsy and dumb.
232.All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) I guess in 1930 the idea of pointing out that war really sucks was novel? This movie is really violent as fuck though. Impressed.
233.The Wrestler (2008) +1 for tits.
234.Rain Man (1988) I don't know why I like this. Is it rape to try and seduce idiot savants? I hope so.
235.Shutter Island (2010) Who didn't see that coming just from the trailer?
236.Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring (2003) Good times with Asians and their philosophies of life. I AGREE WITH THIS MOVIE.
237.Nosferatu (1922) Reverse boner.
238.Manhattan (1979) God damn Woody Allen is insignificant.
239.Mystic River (2003) I don't remember what this is about anymore.

242.Big Fish (2003) Hey I like these pseudo feelgood stories.
243.Papillon (1973) +1 because you've never heard of this epic movie before.
244.Castle in the Sky (1986) Decently entertaining Miyazaki. Par for the course.
245.Shadow of a Doubt (1943) Meh. Not the best Hitchcock. You think a twist is coming but NOPE, LIES.
246.Jurassic Park (1993) How is that movie this low on the list? You retard imdb voters.
247Bringing Up Baby (1938) Pretty sure they use this to torture prisoners in North Korea.
248.The Untouchables (1987) YEAH BITCH CHANGE THE JURY.
249.In the Heat of the Night (1967) The original buddy cop movie! Sort of. Not really... uplifting or anything...
