Why so serious, internet?

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is used by a lot of people, whether they're actually looking up a movie to find out who was involved in making it or playing their own version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.  And being a website that receives plenty of hits every single day, IMDb has of course been tracking how many hits each page (i.e. each movie/actor) gets.  That information has now been compiled and released, and the results are... well, if you've ever paid any attention to pop culture few names on this list will surprise you all that much.  But it's still cool to know, and to have that info correlated and compiled and given some perspective.  I'd also say it's just as interesting to see who or what is not on these lists as it to see who or what is on them.  But enough about me - let's look at the lists!

Top Films of the Last 10 Years
1. THE DARK KNIGHT

Note: "At one point of course fan voting on the page was so high-scoring and frantic that for a brief while The Dark Knight was listed first on their Top 250 films of all time user rated list, though currently it lies at no. 8."  How about that? Top Film of All Time according to user rating.  I mean, I knew thatthe  love for THE DARK KNIGHT was a rare thing in how it, as a genre/comic book property, had spread across the world and pervaded pop-culture, but top film of all time? Nice work, Nolan and company.

2. DONNIE DARKO
3. PULP FICTION
4. THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
5. THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING
6. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN
7. HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
8. TWILIIGHT
9. HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE
10. THE GODFATHER

Top TV Series of the last 10 Years:
1. "Lost"
2. "House M.D."
3) "Grey's Anatomy"
4. "Heroes"
5. "How I Met Your Mother"
6. "24"
7. "Glee"
8. "True Blood"
9. "Dexter"
10. "Gossip Girl"

Top Stars of the Last 10 Years
1. Johnny Depp
2. Brad Pitt
3. Angelina Jolie
4. Tom Cruise
5. Natalie Portman
6. Christian Bale
7. Scarlett Johansson
8. Jennifer Aniston
9. Keira Knightley
10. Emma Watson

Top Most Anticipated In-Production Movies:
1. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

What's that, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES poster? "The legend ends?" Psh, whatever.  I think you'll swiftly find that legend of Nolan's Batman trilogy is far from ending.  See you in ten years on another list like this!

2. MEN IN BLACK III
3. THE DICTATOR
4. GI.I. JOE: RETALIATION
5. THE EXPENDABLES 2
6. BATTLESHIP
7. THE AVENGERS

Extra Tidbit: Men In Black III, huh? Didn't know people were so curious and excited about that movie. Not to mention it only having one teaser trailer and a handful of pictures and posters by way of marketing.

Some people don't seem to understand these polls have nothing to do with quality. Those are simply the movies/actors people clicked on the most. Who cares if Twilight is in the top 10 ? With the amount of cash it made, you can't really be surprised some people looked it up on IMDB. I would be more surprised if it wasn't there.

This proves the only good thing out of IMDB is searching for actors and their films. What pathetic lists, I guess I shouldn't be that surprised though.

This list is somewhat nonsensical. It's based on hits per page, not whether something is actually good. Twighlight? Donnie Darko? DD is one of the most overrated fanboy movies I've ever seen. It's OK, but I'd hardly call it any kind of top 10 material.

the list or article never attempted to claim it had anything to do with whether the movies were good or not and is pretty explicit in stating it is about hits. thank you, captain obvious.

Top 10 films of the last 10 years?

How was The Godfather made in the last 10 years? Clearly the imdb fan poll is highly moderated.

what part of top searches of the last ten years, not top movies made in the last 10 years, is hard to grasp?

These lists mean nothing to me. "Twilight" the number 8 top viewed movie of the decade on IMDB? "Glee" and "True Blood" some of the top viewed shows of the decade?
