BOT's Ranking of the Top 200 Films of All Time (Adjusted) Countdown begins TOMORROW at 9AM PST!

198 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Inspired by @tribefan695's Battle of the Blockbusters thread, I thought it would be interesting to gauge the modern popularity and influence (among BOT users) of the highest-grossing films of all time.

How it works is essentially a ranking of preference of the 200 highest-grossing films of all time adjusted for inflation. Time is of the essence here, as I'm hoping to complete this before the start of the summer blockbuster season when this list is bound to change again.

 

Scoring is pretty simple. For a list of 200, it goes #1: 200 points, #2: 199, #3: 198, etc. The ultimate final ranking will be determined by the amount of points each film has when added together. You don't have to submit a list of 200, as the points can be distributed proportionally from 1 to 200 - for example in a list of 100, #1 would be 200, #2 would be 197.989899, etc. If a film is not included on your list, it simply receives zero points, as keep in mind a film's influence is just as key here.

 

The full list of films can be found here: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/alltime/adjusted.htm. The deadline for submitting your list is at 11:59 pm EST on April 14th. My goal is to finish the countdown before May. 

 

*If Fast 8 hits the magic mark (doubtful) lists will be adjusted accordingly. This also won't interfere with Numbers' Top 100 Scores Countdown.

Turns out, I've seen way more of these movies than I thought. I guess they're just really popular. List won't be today.

That's kinda the point. Figured a list of 200 could be more manageable since these movies are all so well-known.
