In the film buff’s world, do you ever wonder what the highest rated movies of all-time are? There are various ways in which one can judge the popularity of a certain movie. You can look at box office figures, ticket sales, DVD sales, the number of weeks a particular motion picture is shown in the cinemas, and so on. But all of these methods are somewhat limited in trying to evaluate how well a movie is appreciated.
