Letterboxd’s most popular films of all time list is sparking a massive debate

Letterboxd’s most popular films of all time list is sparking a massive debate

Barbie has recently been added to the very long list of films

Letterboxd has updated its top movies of all time and people have a lot to say about it.

The online movie catalog has over 876,000 movies on its system and its top 100 boast some absolute classics.

From Pulp Fiction and Taxi Driver to The Lord of The Rings and Shawshank Redemption, there are a host of fantastic films.

More recent movies to grace the top of the list include Netflix's star-studded Don't Look Up, The Menu and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

And some 2023 movies have since been added to the top end of the list and, as you probably guessed, these include Barbie and Oppenheimer.

These two films appear to be the only new releases to grace Letterboxd's top 72 movies of all time (the first page of its site) - and Barbie came in hot in second place behind Parasite.

Meanwhile, Oppenheimer is in 17th place.

And in light of Letterboxd's sprawling catalog of movies and its rankings, people have taken to social media to share their thoughts.

"The Menu feels out of place up that high in the list, wtf?" questioned one person.

"Everything Everywhere All At Once was way better than Barbie imo. I've not seen Parasite," said another.

Also noting Parasite's top spot, a third penned on X: "Honestly surprised that Parasite is the first."

It probably won't come as much of a surprise to others though as the 2019 movie won a host of awards following its release, including an Oscar for Best Picture.

Letterboxd's current top 10 goes as follows:

1) Parasite

2) Barbie

3) Everything Everywhere All At Once

4) Fight Club

5) Joker

6) Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

7) Interstellar

8) Knives Out

9) The Batman

10) Pulp Fiction

Pointing out that Fight Club is over two decades old, an X user said: "Fight Club still top 5, that movie is 26 years old."

While another pointed out another film that came out a while ago, adding: "Kinda surprising The Truman Show is that high up. Great movie, just seems super random?"

One film that's yet to grace Letterboxd's list it the movie that everyone has been talking about of late - Leave The World Behind.

It dropped on Netflix on November 24 and it quickly became the streamer's number one movie.

The ending has had a lot of viewers baffled, but the writer of the book that the movie was based on was happy with how the film concluded.

Noting that the book itself ends on a cliffhanger, author Rumaan Alam said: "The key thing to look at... is that the book ends with a question mark."

Others were less enthused about the ending, however, so I'd be interested to see where it ranks on Letterboxd's list.
