According to IMDb, these are the 25 best movies of the last 25 years

10.14.2015

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.

Needham shared a list with Vanity Fair of the top-ranked film for every year since the site was founded in 1990. The list doesn't contain too many surprises, but you can check it out for yourself below!

2014: INTERSTELLAR
2013: THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
2012: DJANGO UNCHAINED
2011: INTOUCHABLES
2010: INCEPTION
2009: INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
2008: THE DARK KNIGHT
2007: INTO THE WILD
2006: THE DEPARTED
2005: BATMAN BEGINS
2004: ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND
2003: THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING
2002: THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS
2001: THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
2000: MEMENTO
1999: FIGHT CLUB
1998: SAVING PRIVATE RYAN
1997: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL
1996: FARGO
1995: SE7EN
1994: THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
1993: SCHINDLER'S LIST
1992: RESERVOIR DOGS
1991: THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
1990: GOODFELLAS

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!

Terrible List

Really?!?!?! This list is awful, the mere fact that Wolf Of Wall Street and Interstellar are the best movies from the last two years is absurd, both were not even the best of those respective directors, this is making me dislike movies more and more as the years pass by.

Great list, but 2007 should either be 'There Will Be Blood' or 'No Country For Old Men.'

2007 was a banner year when it came to prestige pictures. That was also the year that gave us Eastern Promises and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. I still think of it as one of the best years for movies.

IMDB ratings are a joke....

I love IMDb but ratings are a joke : everybody knowns those movies are trolled by fanboys or haters...
and their top 250 is a joke too : in 20 years from now, il will be only filled by blockbusters... bye bye classics such as Casablanca, It's a wonderfull life etc etc....

Not a great list, but I love IMDb.

I have been a member of that site since early on, and I'm actually one of its top reviewers; I used to chat with Col Needham back in the old days (not often, but he used to reply to people on the forums and stuff). I don't really participate in the forums anymore and my reviews have come to a standstill as I've gotten older, but I still find myself visiting that site on a daily basis. I remember when the banner at the top used to brag, "Over 1 Million Visitors Per Day!" Now you can probably

And to add to my previous post....Birdman, Boyhood, or American Sniper I thought were the best films of that year (again in my opinion).

I don't agree with Interstellar at all. Not one bit. The best film of that year (in my opinion) was either Birdman or Boyhood.

Agreeing with this list doesn't really matter since the ranking of these movies are based off user ratings and such. But yeah all good movies not necessary the best ones
