Project manager Ryan Godfrey came up with a list of the 250 best films of all time by crunching a bunch of IMDB data.

Ryan Godfrey played with IMDB data to come up with a list of the 250 best movies of all time.
He’s Philadelphia’s own “human Rotten Tomatoes,” as Philly Mag put it.
A silent classic, A Trip to the Moon (1902), tops Godfrey’s list with Humphrey Bogart’s Casablanca coming in at No. 2.
See the full list
And check out the movies that made the list that are set in Philadelphia. (No love for 1987’s Mannequin. Sorry, Dan McQuade.)
Godfrey, a project manager at Langhorne-based Hybrid Software, spent a few years as City Paper’s webmaster.
