by urbanemovies | created - 26 Jan 2016 | updated - 13 Feb 2017 | Public

These movies are the forgotten stepchildren of the IMDb Movie Top 250, all at one time where members of this exclusive club. But times change and so did the rules, as documentaries and short films are no longer eligible for inclusion.

Which documentary or short film that once was in the IMDb Top 250 is your favorite?
