In 2017, the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) recorded 268,246 feature films since 1888.

Many early films have been lost before they could be preserved or discarded.

Though the exact number globally isn't known, it has been estimated at least 500,000 movies— narrative fiction, feature-length, theatrical films—currently exist.

That's a lot to choose from.

So did your go-to film make the list?
