The 1001 Greatest Films, ranked as objectively as possible - 2022 Edition

----------------UPDATE---------------------
- Now using bayesian averages in the calculations which produces far more accurate results.
- Horror, western, animation and noir all have their separate sources used as basis for the list, making the rankings more consistent.
--------------END OF UPDATE------------

I like to thank everyone that engaged and commented in my previous version of this list. The feedback I had was phenomenal and certainly unexpected. When I started this project it was meant to be just a reliable personal source of recommendations of films to watch from time to time. I never expected any interest outside of myself and my family, so thank you all again.

Just like my previous work, I feel that I have to make a disclaimer…
