19 years of IMDB Top 250

IMDB, the International Movie DataBase, is a resource many of us use to find information about the films and television shows we watch. One resource IMDB makes available is a list of their top 250 titles. Defining the development of the list, IMDB says, "Top 250 movies as voted by our users. For this top 250, only votes from regular voters are considered." This means that as ratings are recorded, the list changes.
