There is only TOP 250 and I'd like to create the TOP 1000. Somebody knows where I can find the best rates to begin it? Thanks!

Hi Adrian Cadiot,

From the drop down menu on the search box at the top of most IMDb pages, selected Advanced Search. This is labeled with "Find Movies, TV Shows, Celebrities and more..." and has a yellow magnifying glass to the right.

This will bring you to the Advance Search page.
http://www.imdb.com/search/

Click on Advanced Title Search. This will bring you to the Advanced Title Search page.
http://www.imdb.com/search/title

Under "Title Groups" select IMDb "Top 1000".

Under "Display Options" select sorted by "User Rating Descending".

Click the yellow "Search" button. You should then see this page.

Highest Rated IMDb "Top 1000" Titles
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?groups=top_1000&sort=user_rating,desc

If you select Compact and 250 per page you will see
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?count=250&groups=top_1000&sort=user_rating,desc&view=si...

You can simply continue to use the last two links in the future.

When I see the numbers of questions, I thought, I'll never get an answer...

Thank you very much, Dan Sassow!

Hi Adrian Cadiot,

Generally the relatively easy questions get answered first. The ones that require more research take longer.

Hi Dan, 

It looks like that the 

Highest Rated IMDb "Top 1000" Titles

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?groups=top_1000&sort=user_rating,desc

is very different compared to the classic IMDB-250

http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

do you have any idea, how this possible, or what exactly the reason for that is ?

i mean in theory, both lists should be exactly the same, right ?


If i remember correctly, with IMDB-PRO membership you can get the IMDB-500 list....

Creating your own search will capture result by the actual numbers.  The IMDb created list says:

Top 250
As voted by regular IMDb users

But they don't tell us who they are and what makes a user one.  It's meant to keep people from pulling shenanigans to get a title on the list (or kick a title off the list).  Why people do that is beyond me, but they do.
