/u/StopReadinMyUsername on reddit combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results with general film data from iCheckMovies and IMDb to reveal the 1001 Greatest Movies of All Time.
They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? (TSPDT) is a modest but growing film resource dedicated to the art of motion picture filmmaking and most specifically to that one particular individual calling the shots from behind the camera - the film director.
This list is based on TSPDT's 1,000 Greatest Films, a list compilated by Bill Georgaris using thousands of best-of/all-time lists.
Studio Ponoc just released Trailer #3 for Mary and The Witch's Flower. Looks awesome: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfCNyIQ6yzU
This is a comprehensive list of Studio Ghibli related people and their work.
It contains some older work by Miyazaki and Takahata which is everything from before Studio Ghibli's formation in 1985 (Yes, Nausicaä is actually not a Studio Ghibli Movie). Including Miyazaki's and Takahata's directorial debuts Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro and The Little Norse Prince as well as some well-known World Masterpiece Theater TV Series directed by them.
The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness is a feature film long, behind the scenes, documentary following the work at Studio Ghibli during the production of Miyazaki's and Takahata's final movies The Wind Rises and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.
Work by Studio Ghibli staff after the announcement to restructure the company in 2014:
Ronia the Robber's Daughter is a CG animated TV Series based on the children's book by Astrid Lindgren. Directed by Hayao Miyazaki's son Gorō Miyazaki, animated by Polygon Pictures and co-produced by Studio Ghibli.
The Red Turtle is another co-production, this time between the Dutch-British animator Michaël Dudok de Wit, German distribution company Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli. The movie was nominated for 2017's Oscars in the category: Animated Feature Film.
Even though Miyazaki (once again) went into retirement 3 years ago he decided to come back and work on the animated short film Kemushi no Boro (Boro the Caterpillar) set to release in summer of 2017. Here are some clips taken during production:
After the restructuring announcement, part of the staff decided to create Studio Ponoc in 2015. The word Ponoc is Croatian for "midnight", it's meant to symbolize that a new day is starting. Here is the first trailer from their newly announced movie Mary and The Witch's Flower directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty and Marnie) set to release sometime in 2017:

Have fun watching
This is my own ranked and ordered list of the best/dankest anime that I've watched so far in my illustrious Chinese-cartoons-watching-career. If it's in the Top 50 (make it even Top 100), you better watch it ASAP because well... I do have phenomenal taste ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
