Top 100 Films: Complete list and stats

We did it!

I had a lot of fun making this year’s list. I think my little gimmick of presenting the list by the digits in the ones spot made it a little more interesting to follow along with and gave some fun ways to talk about the list that might not have been present if I did it in a straightforward way. I have an idea for next year’s list but you’ll have to wait to find out what that is.

And now, the statistical breakdown of my top 100 films list. Enjoy.
