In congruence with it’s 25th anniversary, IMDb, the largest movie website on the planet with an estimated 250 million users, is reflecting on the best user rankings of the last 25 years.

The website shared the list of top-ranked films every year since the site was founded in 1990 with Vanity Fair, who points out the list’s abundance of one particular actor: Bro King Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo has starred in four films on the list, making him tied for the most popular actor with Morgan Freeman, who starred in Shawshank Redemption and Seven, with smaller roles in the Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. These actors are only trumped by Christopher Nolan, whose films have been IMDb users favorites an astounding five times.

So without further ado, here is a list on the top 25 movies of the past 25 years coupled with their corresponding IMBd ranking:

2014: Interstellar — 8.7
2013: The Wolf of Wall Street — 8.2
2012: Django Unchained — 8.5
2011: Intouchables — 8.6
2010: Inception –8.8
2009: Inglourious Basterds — 8.3

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
