    132 on current list... lots there that should not be there as a best of all time list.

    Lose out on most of foreign language films, and films prior to 1960`s. Used to be a prolific movie watch, practically every weekend to the cinema. Now I think I`v been once in the last 3 years. Catch up on a lot of popular current movies when traveling in the air!

    Just checked and yeah, been a strong push in recent years for Gump to move up the ranks.

    Wow. That is weird.

    Major issue with the list is for example the Indian movies that show up in the list... They are nowhere close to the best that Indian Cinema has made. Probably that is the reason I am pissed off lol.

    Yeah, fair enough, I can't say I've watched a lot of Indian cinema to comment enough.

    Return of the Living Dead should be on there, for the soundtrack alone.

    Seriously though genre/horror films really do badly in lists like this which does piss me off a bit, I noticed Babadook only had a 6.8 the other day. probably bloody dog lovers. So we all have our niches, but I guess yours is shared by a billion people.

    I'm guessing In the Mood for Love was pushed out. It was there at some point. Chungking Express should be there as well now that you mention it.

    Yeah looking at that handy search device Athlai put up it the first one was there a month ago, probably go back in soon. The other one had a brief history.

    Never heard of them myself.

    Wonder if 4chan or Reddit has got at it, the Forrest Gump thing seems pretty odd in itself.

    The best place I've found for top movies would be Cinesift. It pulls the numbers from Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB, Letterboxd, etc., and then gives you a top list based on that. Not perfect either but nothing will be.

    Chennai Express was rated 8+ at some point.

    OMG.. I used to post a lot of answers on that site. Now the sheer number of Indians posting crap over there has completely turned me off the place. Thank God CW has some sensible Indians left.
