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

Based on several lists available on Internet.

Methodology:

Eligibility: Lists with 10 to 30 entries.
Not eligible: too specific lists such as "available on Netflix", documentaries only, "best of the decade", etc. and lists made by users in imdb, mubi, icm, etc

Distribution of points:
For ranked lists:
#1: 20 points
#2: 18 points and so on until #10: 2 points
#11 or lower: 1 point
Not ranked lists: points are splitted equally.
For instance: lists with 15 entries: 20+18+...+2+1+1+1+1+1=115 / 15 = 7.67 => 8 points for each film.
Tied films split the points
Bonus for each additional entry: 2 points

Tie-brake rules:
#1: Total of points
#2: Number of entries
#3: Year of release
#4: Alphabetical order
