The best movie the year you were born.



Using data from a number of sources, PrettyFamous identified the best movie of every year since 1916. They selected the movie with the highest Smart Rating each year, which is a weighted average out of 100 of the following:

- Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer
- Rotten Tomatoes' Audience Score
- IMDb Rating
- Metacritic's Metascore
- Gracenote's Proprietary Rating
- Inflation-adjusted cumulative domestic box office gross
