Yeah, that’s right, we said top 100 movies but we have changed our minds. The response we got was biblical so we decided to up it to the top 150 movies of all time, as voted for by you, the Outposters.
Hundreds of you responded, and we ended up with a list that was going on for 1,000 unique movies. Your tastes are more diverse than the HR department at the Huffington Post, or central casting working on a Benetton advertisement.
The results have been painstakingly calculated, analysed and checked.
Before we dive right into the top 150 we wanted to pay tribute to the triers. The little movies that could. The movies that made it onto the list but didn’t crack the top 150. And maybe, just maybe, we won’t tell anyone that enough of you voted for Captain Marvel in your own top 30 that it came in 186th place. For shame!
Marvel did put in a strong showing in this bracket, with Spider-Man: Far From Home coming in at 156th, with Captain America: The First Avenger a bit behind in 165th place. Other highlights included a 161st place for King Kong (1933 version) appearances from The Karate Kid (177th), The Adventures Of Robin Hood (182nd) and An American Werewolf In London (200th).
Toy Story (217th) unbelievably jostles with Knives Out (218th) and both of them beat Apollo 13 (222nd), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (230th) and Young Frankenstein (232nd).
Smokey And The Bandit (264th) just loses out to Ford vs Ferrari (263rd) in a tussle of petrol heads.
The top 300 were rounded out by, from 295 to 300, Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery, Seven Days In May, Hereditary, Rogue One, As Good As It Gets and A Night At The Opera. Meanwhile the movies just a hair away from getting into the top 150 include JFK (154th) and Forbidden Planet (155th).
One day we may well publish the entire list, but not until we have completed our countdown which will be coming very soon on the site.
Until then remember, don’t blame us as you voted for this!
