The 300 All-Time Greatest Films: The Consensus Ranked List


The Ace Black Blog compiled results from 28 different all-time greatest film lists, representing the opinions of critics, fans, directors, and actors. The original lists were created and published by sources including the BBC, Time, Roger Ebert, The Guardian, The New York Times, Village Voice, Time Out, Empire, AMC, Sight and Sound, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, AFI, LA Daily News and Entertainment Weekly among others. Book lists include 1001 Movies To See Before You Die, Legendary Movies, and 501 Must See Movies.

The shortest lists feature about 100 movies; the longest about 1001. 21 of the 28 lists were ranked. In total, 2057 different movies appeared on the lists, but 655 of these appeared only once. The source lists are published in English, and so are intrinsically biased towards English-language films, although plenty of foreign language movies are featured. In general the lists are more likely to feature films from the pre-2005 era, although a few post-2005 films made it onto the Top 300.

In simple terms, the consolidated All-Time Great Score developed by The Ace Black Blog is a product of list coverage and rank. For each film, the number of lists the film appears on (as a percent of total, maximum = 100) is multiplied by the film's average rank across all ranked lists (normalized as a fraction, maximum = 1.0). The result is an All-Time Great Score out of 100 for every film appearing on any of the lists. The closer a film's All-Time Great Score is to a perfect 100, the more likely that the film appeared on the majority of lists and was ranked near the top on all the ranked lists.

All films that made the Top 300 appeared on at least 5 different lists, so this consensus ranked list thoroughly weeds out all one-off, obscure, and pet selections that tend to clutter many lists.

Distribution by decade:

1920s and earlier: 13
1930s: 23
1940s: 34
1950s: 44
1960s: 49
1970s: 46
1980s: 37
1990s: 35
2000s: 19

1966 and 1973 are represented with seven films each, the most from any one year. 12 other years are represented with six films each.


Directors most represented in the Top 300:

Stanley Kubrick: 9
Alfred Hitchcock: 8
Steven Spielberg: 8
John Ford: 5
Howard Hawks: 5
Akira Kurosawa: 5
