Snapshot II - IMDb's Top 250 films Sep 2010

Back in February 2009 I did a snapshot of IMDb's Top 250 films. Let's see how the list has changed...

Since I blogged about them:

15 films have gone up in the ranking (in the order of blogging, Batman Begins, Fight Club, Pirates I, V for Vendetta, The Prestige, Full Metal Jacket, Dial M for Murder, The Thing, Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, The Big Lebowski, Avatar, Rocky, Back to the Future, Kick-Ass, Inception).

2 have stayed the same (Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, The Bourne Ultimatum).

And the rest have gone down - including 8 films that have disappeared from the Top 250 altogether (Almost Famous, Star Wars III, Hero, Walk the Line, Frost/Nixon, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Hangover, Zombieland).

My mission is about 24% complete...
