Most Popular Unseen Film per Year

Years ago I used to search IMDB for any films with more than 20,000 votes and try to watch the ones I hadn't seen yet. At one point I got down to only four films left. Fast forward to now and films get 100,000 votes on IMDB before they even leave the theaters, which makes searches like this, even with a higher vote count, no longer feasible.

However, I've seen people here on Letterboxd making lists of the most popular films from each year that they have not seen yet. It looked similar enough to what I used to do to make me curious to put this together for myself. I figured that there would be a bunch of horror…
