Imdb's list is nice, but I largely prefer this one.

Well, I never thought that highly of IMDb 250 as a list, 'always considered it as a recommending list to check out movies.
It looks like EaC 200 has got pretty much the same movies on, where did you stumble on it?

Ou, thanks.
Now to rephrase myself, "not highly" doesn't mean that I think it's awful... it's an ok list, and I would like to finish it, but still there are too many members (who vote) that are "unqualified" to rate movies and they bring up undeserving movies. Critics lists on the other hand have more "security" to them, I find them better.

Agreed on that.

I recently found a highly interesting critics list put together by the Sight and Sound- magazine. Already know this one?

Yeah, I stumble upon it a while ago. If I remember correctly, these critic's and also director's best-of-lists were an interesting browse to me back then.
