All the movies that ever appeared in the IMDB Top 250 List. This includes one day flukes, IMDB algorithm problems and crap movies that got tons of votes just because they come from very highly populated countries and they may be the best there. Excluded some obvious flukes of direct to video like "Best of Playboy: Pamela Anderson" and other similar out of place entries, but there you have it..collectors rejoice...All movies that EVER appeared in IMDB top 250.

Some of my favourite movies of all time don't make it into a list like this. Movies like the original Star Wars, Donnie Darko, like Cruel Intentions, and like Watchmen. All three are ten out of ten in my rankings here, but they aren't in this list. Why? Because this is the list of movies that have each been most fundamental in the development of my character. Each film here had me shell-shocked, staring into space for days struggling to comprehend the numinous awe that I felt after watching it. To see this list, and to see the movies within it, is to see into the weave and fabric of my soul. And no Disney made it on here because... well... my other parents didn't get a slot either.
