147, and similarly to a previous poster only a fraction of that consists of the 90s onwards stuff. The first title that would probably make my own top 250 was Once Upon A Time In The West at #21. My only WTF one was In The Name Of The Father - hideous, and possibly the start of DDL going up his own arse - although there are probably plenty of modern ones I haven't seen that I'd think the same about if I ever did.

They recently changed the criteria; films have to have to 25000 votes to qualify, meaning the likes of Life is Beautiful and Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, which were fairly high on the list before, no longer qualify.

The IMDB measures little beyond but faddy popularity and campaigns.

I think between 94 and 96. A bit of a guess as I'm counting films I've seen all the way through and not just parts of them on the TV.

They probably shouldn't allow films that are less than, say, 5 years old. The Avengers Assemble is the 82nd greatest film of all time? Really?

Oh, and I've seen 82.
