* I've noticed that, on occasion, some movies will temporarily disappear from the list despite having an eligible score, probably due to a technical error. I'll add an asterisk to such titles but keep them on the list in their last known location.

IMDB has changed the criteria for Top 250 eligibility from 6,000 user votes to 25,000, which has caused some significant differences in the list. I will be keeping this list regularly updated, but the old list is viewable here.
