Your Top Movies List

We also created a 'best ever' movies list. Here it is!

///////////////////////
How do we compare to IMDB's top 250 movies of all time? If the movie
was found, it is proceeded by the top 250 ranking, otherwise a '-'.
(any spelling variation could have caused one to not display its
proper rank, do not despair!)
