So there appears to be just one entry from 2016's top 100 that didn't make the top 250 this time and that's Magnolia, I wonder what happened there.

Just watched Inside Out and it was a sweet story but #20 is ridiculous

I know right. Great visuals, great concept, but the script is disappointing. This is a sweet story, but nothing to compare with Toy Story films. Coco is much better film. <3

Exactly! I watched Coco this past week aswell and I have to agree. Toy Stories are infinitely better too.

Great list panda. Do we know how this compares to other sites? 

I’m not positive you’d just have to check if each site as their own list

Absolutely deserved - my #1, too. Watched it again yesterday (Extended Edition). It is an amazing movie and everything story-telling and film-making is all about.

I do like it. But #2 is way too high for it, imho.

Had hoped for TOP3 for Titanic... but at least iut is in the TOP10.

 

 

 

 

Very happy all three LotR movies made the TOP 10. 

 

Thanks for all the work @Pandamia!. It has been a joy reading through it all.

Number 1

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

Warner Brothers, Directed by Peter Jackson (213 Points, 36 Votes)

e8bc35e3b8d21aca1e314a5da6081083.jpg

 

"The dark fire will not avail you, Flame of Udun! Go back to the shadow. You shall not pass!"

 

Number 1 Placements: 4

Top 5 Placements: 8

Top 10 Placements: 13

Top 25 Placements: 24

Previous Rankings: 2016 (3, +2), 2014 (7, +6), 2013 (5, +4), 2012 (2, +1)

Awards Count: Won 4 Oscars, Nominated for Best Picture

Tomatometer: 91% (8.2 Avg Rating)

Box Office: 313.4m (498.9m Adjusted)

Synopsis: A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.

Critic Opinion: "Masterfully paced, the movie builds slowly, introducing the mythology, habitats and lifestyles of Tolkien's creatures. It may be a bit of information overload for moviegoers who have not read Tolkien, but once the second exhilarating half of the film kicks in, few viewers will stop to ponder the difference between an orc and an uruk.

The cast is superb, especially McKellen with his kindly imperiousness as Gandalf and Mortensen with his brooding, noble savage take on Aragorn.

 

Jackson nails the fraternity that develops among Tolkien's fellowship. These curious misfits, skeptical of one another's worthiness, come to trust and love each other, grieving like brothers if one should fall. Two of the company share a grand death scene worthy of the heroes of ancient Greece.The size differential (hobbits average 3 1/2 feet, dwarves a foot or so more) is deftly handled through visual effects, diminutive doubles for the actors and some old-fashioned, forced-perspective camera work. Interaction early on between the child-sized Bilbo and the towering Gandalf is so utterly real, size never matters from then on: The audience simply accepts it as another flourish in this exotic world.  The only drawback: Part two is 12 months away, part three, 24 months."  - David Germain

 

"J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece, the three books that make up "The Lord of the Rings," is about two profound things: the horror of power without spiritual understanding, and the nature of courage. In the figure of Frodo, the humble, small-town hobbit who never expected to be called upon for acts of bravery or sacrifice, several generations of readers have found their everyman, their hairy-footed inspiration, their call to day-by-day fortitude.  To even begin to conceive of a cinematic version of the series is daunting. But "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" gets it right. Director Peter Jackson has created a film refreshingly free of ego, giving this technically advanced picture an old-fashioned rhythm and gravity.

 

"Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring" would be an exceptional film in any year or season. Yet there's no escaping that part of what makes this film especially powerful is what happened on Sept. 11. The themes feel sad and close. We see visions of a fallen planet, of men unable to control their lust for power, of wizards of unimaginable knowledge who have sold their souls for profit. Most of all, we see a world in fear, and a shadow from another land that threatens the end of everything." - Mark LaSelle

User Opinions: "The best of the LOTR films.  To get a lump in my throat, the only scene in the series better than when Boromir tells Aragorn that he was his captain and his king, is in ROTK when Aragorn tells the hobbits that they bow to no one." - @baumer

 

"Everything about this movie is just so iconic and memorable. Hobbit I cannot even remember any character's name or one musical note or magnificent shot. This movie is just so full of them, and that's only the first one! The music is one of the best scores in modern history. Everything about something like the Moria scene feels so practical and visceral. Just spectacular. I think PJ was starting to get in his own ass with the multiple endings and multiple deus ex machinas in ROTK, but the first two are absolutely blockbuster perfection." - @Cmasterclay

 

"I'm so struck with how perfect this movie is. The acting, the storytelling, the world that after all this time is just as stunningly beautiful. Also, the greatest soundtrack ever made for a movie. Howard Shore is pure genius. 

The Lothlorien scenes were my favourite part of the movie. I love Tolkien's Elves. And the ending scenes... so many memories.

Now it's time for the 4 hour epicness of the Two Towers EE." - @James

 

"Mmm-mmm-mmmh." - @Jack Nevada

Commentary: The Fellowship of the Ring tops our list, being a first time winner, and marks the best the Lord of the Rings trilogy has ever done, getting all of its movies within the top 10 and then topping out the list, we truly have been converted into a bunch of Kiwis.  The Fellowship of the Ring is an absorbing masterpiece, a true adventure film that wraps you in its quest and blasts off.  No other film has accomplished the world building that this film, and the rest of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, managed to show.  Howard Shore's score soars, it's grand and epic when it needs to, and utterly moving at other sections.  Peter Jackson truly captured lightning in a bottle with this trilogy, and pulled off the impossible creating the magnum opus of cinema, with a little bit of help from Tolkien's poetic, epic masterwork.
