In the story, The Lady or the Tiger?, a barbaric king often used the façade of being genial to lull his enemies into a false sense of security. If there was a criminal case that caught his fancy, he would bring the accused into an amphitheater which had two closed doors side by side, one of which he was to open. Behind one door would be a tiger which would maul him to death. Behind the other would be a lady suitable for marriage. Regardless of the accused's past or current situation, a funeral or wedding would then take place depending on which door he opened. The King loved his daughter, who was as cold hearted as him. She was in a clandestine romance with a young man. The King, upon learning this news, sentenced the man to the fate of the amphitheater. What awaits the young man: the Lady or the Tiger?

On Thursday July 19, 2012 the IMDb announced that it had increased the threshold for inclusion in the IMDb Top 250 from 3,000 votes to 25,000 votes. As a result, the IMDb has excluded many highly rated films.

Please consider watching these highly rated films and rating them. This list includes all films rated 8.0 and higher with between 10,000 and 25,000 votes.

This list is based on this search.

Top 250 Chart change announcement.


In an effort to keep our charts and voting system relevant and accurate, we have made a small change to the way the IMDb Top 250 chart (http://www.imdb.com/chart/top) is calculated: the minimum number of votes needed to be included in the chart has been raised from 3,000 votes (a limit that had been set many years ago) to 25,000.

The change only affects whether a title is eligible to be featured in the IMDb Top 250 chart. Because of this, the composition of the chart will change slightly, as some titles that don't meet the threshold are excluded and replaced by others with more votes.

As a director and producer, Clint Eastwood has built up a rapport with certain crew members and actors over the years. He tends to collaborate with these people on new projects. This list is sorted first by the number of films and television shows that a person has worked with Mr. Eastwood, and then alphabetically by last name. This list includes all of Mr. Eastwood's projects since his first acting role, Revenge of the Creature.

Each entry is of the form:
X collaborated with Clint Eastwood N times on films and television programs.
X is on these lists.

The person's name links to the IMDb entry. "Collaborated' links to the projects that this person shares in common with Mr. Eastwood. "Lists" links to all the lists this person is on.

At the time this list was created, 8610 people have worked with Clint Eastwood; 613 have worked with him three or more times.

The top 250 movies as voted by our users (IMDb Top 250) on November 19, 1996
http://replay.waybackmachine.org/19961219233558/http://us.imdb.com/top_250_films

This is the earliest available listing available through the Internet Archive.

This is the calculations for the Bayesian estimate on November 19, 1996:

The formula for calculating the top 250 films gives a true Bayesian estimate:

weighted rank (WR) = (v/(v+m))*R + (m/(v+m))*C

where:
R = average for the movie (mean) = (Rating)
v = number of votes for the movie = (votes)
m = minimum votes required to be listed in the top 250 (currently 200)
C = the mean vote across the whole report (currently 6.62)
The current rank is only given for film appearing in the IMDb Top 250 when this list was compiled on March 27, 2011.
