Top 250 wrap-up, part 11 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.
