Top 250 wrap-up, part 4 of 20

Over the last three years, I’ve watched my way through the IMDb’s Top 250. Now I’m ranking those 314 movies (math is hard) from worst to best according to my “objective rating” system. And as a token adjustment for my glaring biases in grading the movies, ties are broken by favoring the ones I liked least.

Part 4 of 20: 2.2/4 (Okay)

#279. Modern Times, Charles Chaplin, 1936. Currently #69 on the IMDb.

#278. The Terminator, James Cameron, 1984. Currently #168.

#277. Avatar, James Cameron, 2009. Currently #137.

#276. The Kid, Charles Chaplin, 1921. Currently #170.

#275. The Matrix, The Wachowski Brothers, 1999. Currently #26.

#274. Das Boot, Wolfgang Petersen, 1981. Currently #64.

#273. Seven, David Fincher, 1995. Currently #28.

#272. Changeling, Clint Eastwood, 2008. Currently off the list.

#271. Manhattan, Woody Allen, 1979. Currently #218.

#270. The Shawshank Redemption, Frank Darabont, 1994. Currently #1.

#269. Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick, 1975. Currently #221.

#268. Amores perros, Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2000. Currently #167.

#267. Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, F.W. Murnau, 1927. Currently #152.

#266. Le Samouraï, Jean-Pierre Melville, 1967. Currently off the list.

#265. La Dolce vita, Federico Fellini, 1960. Currently off the list.

Finally, we’re getting into the part of the ranking where there are some genuinely good movies (but flawed enough to get a relatively low score). Of course, there’s also a lot of crap in this bunch (but well made enough to get a relatively high score).

Anyway, here is a list of mediocre movies for you. Merry Christmas.
