Welcome to my list! These are the movies that I love or like a heckuva lot - whether they be long-time favorites or gems that I've recently discovered. The first 100 are my top 100, in roughly preferential order (actually, very roughly after the first 25); after that, the list is alphabetically ordered.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Hope some of these are your favorites too!
 
a list of 657 titles
This list contains 657 films released from 2000-2004 (NOTE: the list is a sample and does not have every film released from 2000-2004). For each film, the following information is included:
1. Budget
2. Worldwide lifetime gross (WLG), which may include grosses from re-issues of the film in years after the film's initial release
3. % of WLG made in USA
4. % of WLG made outside of USA
5. Budget returned (how many times a film made back its budget, or WLG divided by budget)
6. Profit/loss (WLG minus budget; a minus sign [-] indicates a loss)
7. Whether a film is an outlier for budget, WLG, budget-returned and/or profit/loss

The list is ordered by profit/loss, so #1 made the biggest profit in the sample and #657 had the biggest loss in the sample. All figures in the list and in the sections below are in millions of US$, with the exception of budget-returned and US/non-US percentages for WLG.

I've always been intrigued by the Art Direction/Production Design category because it's interesting to see the work and artistry that go into creating a representation of a certain place at a certain time. The list is arranged chronologically, with the award years listed beside each nominee, and with the winners for each awards year listed first.

Note: For the periods 1940-1956 and 1959-1966, there were two categories for Art Direction: Black-and-white, and color. I've indicated which films are in which categories.
