Lists

Since our inception, the team here at Film School Rejects has always loved researching, assembling, and endlessly debating in list form. From giant genre-themed lists to prompts with a bit more specificity, list-making is one of our most beloved pastimes. We even have several list-centric recurring columns, such as Beat the Algorithm and Movie DNA. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started:
