IMDb Top 250 - updated weekly

IMDB's top 250 list: loved by some, hated by others. Of course you can argue about the order of movies and the presence or absence of certain titles. Fact remains that it holds a great deal of the most appreciated films of all time and the overall quality is pretty high.

I tried to complete the list once, but choked near the end... ;-) I will keep updating weekly though and one day I will finish the last few missing films.

Feel free to comment your % or must sees from this list!

Last update: 26/5/2017. I am currently at 93%.
