For every 30 people that favorited this list, one disliked it.


For those wondering about the new update after all these years, the source is now official. There's an excel sheet on the TSPDT website for this list:, the last link in the Resources section. Hopefully it will be updated yearly from now on.

My theory is that they have no interest in this list so they just checked them all off instead of actually watching them. I agree, there are at least 20 that are almost impossible to find. I really like the competitive aspect of this site but I really wish everyone would be honest in their checking.

Yeah, when questioned, someone's actually admitted to me they haven't seen any of the films on a certain list because they hate those type of movies (even though they checked every film). Oh well...I won't name names. I don't see the point of lying though.

I don't get it though. If you're not interested in watching the movies, why even bother checking them all? So you're number on a list?

Fun fact - just noticed someone who has checked every single movie on every list in the Prizes category. I wonder why I smell something fishy here...
