Top 100 Films of All Time (According to Sam)

Here it is. Your definitive list of the top 100 movies of all time. Actually, that’s not true unless you are Sam, our Senior Editor. This is Sam’s definitive list of the top 100 movies of all time.

Sam has giant unsubstantiated movie opinions (and tiny little editing fingers), so this summer he undertook the enormous task of rating his top 100 favorite films. Every few days, he would post installments of his “Top 100 Films of All Time” list on our company Slack. His selections immediately drew both awe and ire from pretty much everyone in the company.

“I’m guessing ‘Weekend At Bernies II’ is just much higher up the list?”

We self-righteously debated at length every time Sam posted. When he introduced #100 through #91, Matt our EP guffawed, “I’m guessing Weekend At Bernie’s II is just much higher up the list?” It was a good peek behind the curtain at different people’s personalities and how we as individuals rank and value this art form.

“I am not saying these are the BEST movies of all time,” Sam would defend. “They’re just my favorite.” And yet, we’d tell him precisely why and how he was wrong with his selections. Poor Sam.

Now it’s your turn. Sam’s complete list has been revealed and debated ad nauseam. It’s time for the list to stand in the hard light of the scrutinizing public. As you read the list, let us know where you stand. Is Sam right?
