Top 100 Greatest Movies of the Modern Era (The Ultimate List)

by ChrisWalczyk55 | created - 11 Oct 2014 | updated - 16 Jul 2016 | Public

The movies made in the *last 20 years* on this list are ranked according to their success (awards & nominations), their popularity, and their cinematic greatness from a directing/writing perspective. 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. In other words, a films' commercial success (Oscars & BAFTA Awards), and greatness in direction, screenwriting and production, is how I ranked the films on this list. 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*.

Thanks guys and don't forget to LIKE & comment! :)
