The IMDb Top 250 on 1st January, 2014

Introduction

To help track the Change in the IMDb Top 250, I grab a static copy of that list each 1st January. Here's the list as it was on 1st January, 2014, with some data that ties it to previous years. Here are equivalent pages for 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2004.

Of course, the list changes all the time. Here's the current version of the IMDb Top 250 at the Internet Movie Database.

Key

This list is in order and lists the title, year and director of each film, with a link to its IMDb page, along with its position (if applicable) in the list I grabbed on 1st January in 2013 and at some point in mid-2004. The last column highlights the change in position over the last twelve months. A film that wasn't in the list in 2015 is a new entry, even if it was in the list in a previous year.
