How I reranked the IMDb Top 250

Welp, here it is.

Beginning from the bottom on August 17th, 2015, and finally arriving at #1 on July 4th, 2017, I have gone through the entire IMDb Top 250, watched 247 of the films, and re-ranked the ones I deemed worthy of greatness. It’s pretty obvious that my re-ranking is not perfect, and there’s possibly a considerable amount of unintentional subjectivity involved, but it’s always fun to do things like this and debate about it.

The original ranking, if you care to know, is here for your viewing pleasure.

Below this huge image of an exported Excel spreadsheet is the “eliminated” and skipped list.

I’ll post something more comprehensive soon, and there are plenty more fun and interesting analytics on the way, but I just wanted to get this out there. Enjoy, and be angry!
