An alternative IMDb Top 250: the "favoritest" movies relative to era's icon

Created by monoglot.

Favorited 4 times, disliked 0 times, added to 3 watchlists.

Number of high IMDb votes (8–10) multiplied by a factor based on the half-decade of the film's release. This weights older films more based on the fewer votes being cast for their movie peers, but serves to highlight movies that are disproportionately watched based on their era. These are the populist greats that stand out among titles from the same time.
