Tim and Will have been ranking things since long before there was an Internet obsessed with ranking things. This might sound like some sort of boast, but it's actually much sadder than that. They were essentially doing Listicles, for themselves, on notebook paper. Man, it's depressing to even type.
Anyway: Now that the Internet exists, they do all sorts of rankings. They love them, unapologetically: They believe the simplicity of rankings allows for a greater, more focused examination of dozens of films spanning multiple decades. Plus: There's never anything wrong with giving people another excuse to talk about movies. Thus, here are some of the rankings we've done over the years.
