We have done two listicles on the IMDb top 250 list. One on the movies that don’t deserve to be on the IMDb list, and the second on the movies that deserve to be on the list, but aren’t. Today’s list is completely different. In this list, we are going to talk about 10 great movies that have no business being in a populist list like IMDb’s but still have somehow found a place on it. Why? One has to always remember that a list like IMDb top 250 is completely decided by votes of normal filmgoers. I am sure many of those voters are serious movie lovers, but most of them watch movies for entertainment. So, for a movie like ‘A Separation’, which is completely an art house film, to exist on it is shocking. Actually, the inclusion of all the 10 movies listed below is surprising (despite the fact that they completely deserve their place).
10. The Hunt (2012)
‘The Hunt’ is a devastating story that unfolds in a manner that you least expect. It starts innocuously but slowly turns into a gripping thriller-drama where your own conscience and judgment will be tested. Very few films are made with the intention to question the moral judgment of the audiences themselves. ‘The Hunt’ is one such rare film that will make you think and question while you remain on the edge of your seat. Yes, ‘The Hunt’ is a riveting watch, but it is not also everyone’s cup of tea.
