25 Best Movies Of The Decade (According To IMDB)

The films you NEED to watch (according to you)

Sony Pictures Classics

While the recent backlash against Rotten Tomatoes and critical consensus sites has drawn strange battle-lines between film writers and fans and put into question the sanctity of the unified score, IMDB's User Rating remains a real mark of quality.

The Top 250 is still the big list you turn to, because its metrics favour informed fans who've actually watched (rather than hype-inflaters) and with the decade pootling to its end, now's a great time to look back on the films that have pulled in the highest ratings. After all, that should offer a useful, fairly dependable list of what we ought to consider the very best, shouldn't it?

As a slight qualifier - the ranking is judged mostly by the same criteria that the Top 250 is (because, unfortunately, there's a big problem with ratings farms inflating ratings on films from certain countries in particular).

So, which are IMDB's best films of the decade...?
