We've all visited IMDb at one point or another, it's an invaluable resource for movie fans and this year the site is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Congratulations IMDb, you can rent a car now. When Col Needham, the founder of IMDb, first developed the site, it was simply a downloadable database software on the earliest version of the internet. Twenty five years later and it has transformed into a juggernaut with around 250 million users.

You may not have an Oscar sitting on your shelf Leonardo DiCaprio, but the users of IMDb seem to really love you; I'm sure that comes as a great comfort. No two people have the exact same taste in film, so I'm certain there are several movies on this list which several of you may deem unworthy. If you object to a particular film getting top billing, let us know which film from that year you consider the best in the comments!
