IMDB says: "Top 250 movies as voted by our users. For this top 250, only votes from regular voters are considered."

The list changes as votes are placed. Thus the list is in constant change. But I only track the changes once a year. The entries out of numeric order will be place in the proper order in the next few weeks. I won't say why they are out of order. If you ask, I'll tell you its just because.
