      Also, am I the only one who doesn't really like the movie "Your Name". I thought it was a bit cliche to get all these attention.
      Ah, yes. Growing up I didn't really watch many movies, but out of the ones I did watch the Asian ones were all my favorites and I guess in a way that influences me as I grow older. I like things like Back to the Future, Alien, Ghostbusters, etc. as well, but for the things I would consider solid favorites they would all probably be Asian cinema or something else. There were a couple non-Asian films in my list as well but they're few and far between in comparison. lol

      And as for Your Name, I liked it, enough to consider it a favorite. Haha. I can understand why one wouldn't though, romance actually usually really isn't my thing and I'm not entirely keen on anime itself. Though I enjoyed the story since it seemed like a more "fresh" take on romance for me and it kept me interested. The animation was also very beautiful at times.

      Well, some introduction before I get to this list. It is commonly thought that IMDb has a much more reasonable Top 250 than Rotten Tomatoes, and that is for a major reason. Rotten Tomatoes has thousands of 95-98% movies that just by chance a sample of critics thought were passable, not incredible. RT unfortunately appeals to people because critics mostly rate movies so high, so your favorite movie likely has a high rating, but if you actually look you'll realize your movie's incredibly low compared to most everything else, and that's is why a typical movie with 98% on RT feels so average, while masterpieces with an 80% in 1000th to 3000th places on RT are so good. The facts show that many brilliant movies on RT are rated low (80-90%, that is 3000th place very low) and so many average movies are rated high at 98%-100%. Only the people who look at the facts know RT has a completely screwed up rating system. If you disagree and think it works for how likely you are to enjoy a movie, then you just haven't looked at the facts. Now, I support something better than the IMDb rating, I'll get to it in a second, but I just want to say IMDb has a much better Top 250 than RT because (A) it heavily weighs for spam ratings and outliers, (B) is based on a rating system 1-10 that works, as it accounts for different tiers of quality, not just "80% rate this passable compared to unpassable." IMDb scores are a phenomenal resource, however...

      This is where I really wanted to start off. Recent news for me, IMDb is even better than I thought, because it features an even better scoring system I hadn't seen: Scores according to its most experienced raters. That's right, if you've seen and rated lots of movies throughout the years, if you show experience every year, you qualify here. This in effect, is the very pinnacle of a good rating system. They have a Top 250, as well as scores for every movie.

      Check out the IMDb Top 250 according to the most experienced raters, if you haven't already imdb.com/list/ls051158188/
      Objectively this should be the best list of movies on average, because IMDb is already such a good site, this list is objectively even better.

    • In my opinion, in agreement with john_marston, the IMDb Top 1000 Voter's Score I pointed out is the way to go, available for any movie. (A) Metacritic is great in theory but it just doesn't have enough sample size, and (B) I trust a group of 1000 people who just make lists simply out of personal passion for movies, not reputation. They're anonymous, they've spent long long hours rating more movies than critics, they rate more critically than critics, that's because they're being honest with themselves, because nobody is looking. Critics have to meet public expectation, seem to spend more time mimicking than thinking for themselves, and thus can be fake with their reviews.

      Scoring systems do work, just look at the Experienced Rater's Top 250 above for the proof.
      It's just that, everyday film fans who put in passion rating thousands of films for years of their life, imo, are who make up the sample I want to trust with a score. Not your typical 15 year old with 5 movie reviews. That's why this feature is here.

      I think it's the best list I've ever seen. Oh also, you can bring up any score from them from that movie's main page. Ie. at the bottom: imdb.com/title/tt2527336/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt Star Wars: Last Jedi 6.9/10... yeah this group is pretty critical because it's something personal to them.

    • I agree, however I think you just read the IMDb Top 1000 Voter's Score as the % chance you will enjoy the movie, not an objective score you need to agree with. It represents chance because it's a tabulation of different people. I mean, as you probably know. The same would be true for Metacritic if I thought it were indeed accurate to the population, but I think it appeals to much more bias and groupthink.

      For example, the highest scorer according to the IMDb Top 1000 is The Godfather at a 9.3, and only 49% of the Top-1000 give it a 10. So 9.3 really means you have about a 93% chance of enjoying the movie, and a 49% chance of loving it. The Last Jedi they gave a 6.9, with 16% giving it a 10, so you have about a 69% chance of enjoying it and a 16% chance of loving it. The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King has an 8.5, and only 39% of them give it a 10. So you have about an 85% of enjoying it, and a 39% chance of loving it.

      I think the IMDb Top 1000 best represents the % chance you will like a movie. I know some think Metacritic, but I have my doubts on Metacritic, as a smaller, sketchier sample of critics, while the IMDb Top 1000 do this out of similar knowledge but much more honesty and passion for movies, so they're more accurate, larger in size, they've rated more movies, and anything below a 4/10 vote on IMDb barely counts into averages, so it's a nicely weighed system.

      But hey if you think Metacritic gives a more accurate score, more power to you. Just as long as we agree Rotten Tomatoes scores are a big lie (demonstrated by the facts themselves.)
