Snow White is ranked #312 of all-time on the TSPDT list, so critics would at least agree. The only animated films that are higher are Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, though WALL-E also looks likely to displace it with time.

There are only 2 animated movies in the top 300? That's pretty absurd tbqh!


A lot of critics seem to ignore animated movies entirely...it's really quite sad.

I don't think any Disney movies past the first five are in the top 1000.

Christ. I was worried that only having 6 Disney animated features and 4 Pixar films in my top 250 would make people rage.

I don't think he literally is, but I believe Banksy helped create his persona to punk the art community

Snow White being one of the few Disney films shows that you pretty much just read critic lists and put things you are "supposed" to like. Nothing wrong with liking it, but those lists use "greatest" to mean influencial movies.
Bells, bells, bells!

I tend to consider influence at least somewhat in making these lists. Movies are such a cool medium because they're all additive upon their forebears. Part of a film's "greatness" is its ability to inspire other filmmakers imo.

And also, if you like a bunch of similar movies about the same amount, it would make sense to choose the one that carries influence over the others. Snow White also still stands out for its animation quality.

Like, I feel like people try to say that about Citizen Kane too, while I can think of very few movies that actually do what CK manages throughout.

#244. The Fifth Element
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/65/Fifth_element_poster_%281997%29.jpg
Dir: Luc Besson
Genre: Science Fiction
Year: 1997

Apparently I was wrong in my OP... I completely forget this is technically a French film!

Anyway, the Fifth Element is a very silly movie. It's over-the-top, campy, and probably could have benefited from another few years of CGI technology improvement. But god damn does it ooze style and originality. Taken unseriously--as I think the director intended--it really should silence the critics who tended to over-analyze everything in this era (see: Starship Troopers, RoboCop, etc.). Just a genuinely fun watch to this day.

#243. The Thing
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a6/The_Thing_%281982%29_theatrical_poster.jpg
Dir: John Carpenter
Genre: Science Fiction, Horror
Year: 1982

John Carpenter's The Thing is so close to being (I believe) the only remake in my Top 250! But alas, it's not actually a remake of The Thing from Another World, but rather a reimagining of its source material.

The Thing is an absolute master class in sci-fi horror filmmaking. Very few movies so accurately portray a sense of isolation, terror, and paranoia as well as this one. I could also make the argument that this contains the greatest practical effects of all time. Seriously, if anyone can name something that does it better, I am all ears. I'd love to see it.

I mean

Come. ON.
