Top 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (The Ultimate List)

The movies on this list are ranked according to their success (awards & nominations), their popularity, and their true greatness from a directing/writing standpiont. To me, accuracy when making a Top 10/Top 100 all time list is extremely important. My lists are not based on my own personal favorites; they are based on the true greatness and/or success of the person, place, or thing being ranked. My lists are also based on the opinions of experienced professionals who are involved in whatever I am ranking. For example, many professional and/or famous actors, directors, writers, and producers believe that "The Godfather" is the #1 movie of all time. Their opinions, along with the film's success (awards & nominations), and its true greatness from a directing/writing standpoint, is why I ranked "The Godfather" at #1. If you guys would like to view my other Top 10/Top 100 lists, feel free to check out my YouTube page and/or my IMDb page at "ChrisWalczyk55."
