About The Greatest Films


Why make this site?

We have a hard time picking what movies to watch and remebering what we've seen, and that's why we've created The Greatest Films. By registering you can flag movies you've seen and want to see. A big part of our inspiration was The Greatest Books, so please check it out.

If you have any problems, questions, or suggestions please reach out to us via email.


How is the top 100 calculated?

The list is generated by aggregating the ratings of over 912 movies from 40 movie lists. A film scores points by appearing on lists. If a list is ranked a higher position is worth more points than a lower one. Lists are also weighted based on a number of criteria. For example, lists composed by critics that cover the last 100 years are weighted higher than lists voted on by the general public that cover fewer years.
