Most Popular Movies

The list is finally here!! After a number of votes, 341 movies were picked by the people who voted. I decided to do this survey in response to the Sight and Sound Poll. For those of you who are unfamiliar with that it is a survey that is given out every ten years to many different critics and directors. They tend to judge on what is the Greatest Movie of All Time and for the first time in fifty years Citizen Kane was dethroned from the top spot. But, who says that you judge a movie on it's greatness? Film fanboys were so upset by Vertigo knocking Citizen Kane down, but how does that affect the regular moviegoer? It doesn't. I honestly would rather hear about what the most liked films are compared to what the greatest films are. Even great films were not even placed on the Sight and Sound Poll. Okay, I don't want to continue to rant, so let's get on the survey.

So, what I did was I had people pick their top ten favorite movies. I took all of the votes and I listed how many times they were chosen. Close to 100 Movies received multiple votes. I decided to only rank the movies that received three or more votes. The rest of the movies are listed underneath the table that ranks the top forty-three movies. I think this is a wide variety of movies. You have movies that would be considered teen comedies and then you have classic foreign films. A number of these movies I have never seen and a some of these I had never even heard of before now. If you are in need of watching a good movie then you should go through these and find some movies to watch. You could find your future favorite movies. Also, I will continue to keep the survey open if people would still like to vote who have not already. This is something that I will continue to do and the results will change periodically when new votes come in. But, for now these are the results and they will probably stay like this for awhile. So, look at them. See all the ones that were chosen. Some might surprise you because they surprised me. Tell me if you are shocked by any of these or if you think some movies should be up higher. You can start any type of discussion you want. Or, you could just say The Dark Knight rules. It does not matter to me. Just comment and share. And yes, there were a good bit of ties. That's why we need more people to vote.

"-" means there is a tie.
