The 'Official' Letterboxd Top 250 movies - updated weekly

The Letterboxd Top 250 movies, based on the average weighted rating of all Letterboxd users. I chose to remove all stand-up specials, concert films, documentaries, shorts, 'collection listings' and other 'rarities', so only feature length 'dramatized' movies are listed here.

To avoid any discussions about documentary or not, Letterboxd genre classifications are used to remove them. 

A few statistics...

The oldest movie on the list is Charlie Chaplin's The Kid, released in 1921. The most popular decade in the list is the 1950's with 42 entries. A complete overview:
1920's - 7 entries
1930's - 6 entries
1940's - 18 entries
1950's - 42 entries
1960's - 36 entries
1970's - 37 entries
1980's - 26 entries
1990's - 34…
