This is a list of films considered "the best ever" in national and international surveys of critics and the public. Some surveys focus on all films, while others focus on a particular genre or country. Voting systems differ, and some surveys suffer from biases such as self-selection or skewed demographics, while others may be susceptible to forms of interference such as vote-stacking.

The Times, June 2005 'It's a greatest hitlist that demands respect. On a certain level it is pointless to criticize a book that purports to list the Top 1000 movies of all time on the basis of its selections. For ever since movie buff Leslie Halliwell brought out his first Filmgoer's Companion 40 years ago, it has become the film reference work. After all, no two people will ever agree on such a list, so arguing about it is somewhat pointless.

Book-to-movie adaptions divide opinion Others feel strongly that the adaption never lives up to the original story.

Book-to-movie adaptions divide opinion. Some of us relish the satisfaction of seeing iconic characters and stories brought to life on the big screen - in a way that honours (rather than altering or sensationalising) the original text, storyline and characters. Others feel strongly that the adaption never lives up to the original story. Which is why Stylist has decided to put together a selection of the best 100 book-to-film adaptations.

To me, accuracy when making a Top 10/Top 100 all time list is extremely important. In other words, a film's commercial success (Oscars & BAFTA Awards), and greatness in direction, screenwriting and production, is how I ranked the films on this list. If you guys would like to view my other Top 10/Top 100 lists, feel free to check out my YouTube page and/or my IMDb page at ChrisWalczyk55. A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder.

A former detective with a fear of heights is hired to follow a woman apparently possessed by the past, in Alfred . It was a statement that came at a time which now looks something like the peak of humanity’s technological optimism.

A former detective with a fear of heights is hired to follow a woman apparently possessed by the past, in Alfred Hitchcock’s timeless thriller about obsession. Hitchcock’s supreme and most mysterious piece (as cinema and as an emblem of the art). Paranoia and obsession have never looked better. After half a century of monopolising the top spot, Citizen Kane was beginning to look smugly inviolable.

Film producer and veteran movie buff Jim Riffel presents a list of the top 1,000 films of all time in a softcover format that's half the size of a videocassette.

Since I love classic movies, the timeliness of this title was not an issue. I was quite pleased to be able to find a book exclusively dedicated to providing spot on reviews of movies that the newer guides, unfortunately, neglect.

This book's contents and even it's title are a ripoff of other people's work. Although the idea of a quick guide is right on, if all you do is rent Jim's favorite movies then you might as well just hire him to do all your thinking for you.

Jim Riffel always gives a great value. If you want the best guide to videos this is it. You might also check out his video on Howard Stern which is amazing and truthful.

For its size, it is a wonderfully useful book. I have 20 or so books on videos and this is the most used over the past 4 - 5 years.
