Rankings: BEST FILMS OF ALL TIME

A lot of people ask me what I think the greatest movie of all time is, and considering your personal opinion and taste, any given individual's answer is going to be different. Once it gets into what I believe the top ten films of all time happen to be, things become slightly more clear, but it's still a difficult decision to make. So what I've done is comprise a comprehensive list of the top 150 films I've ever seen. These films are taken from the 1521 films I've seen to date, and I think they give a rather eclectic range. I've written reviews for some of the films, so you'll be able to check out my in-depth thoughts on the subject. That being said, enjoy this list of the best films of all time (according to me).
