It is natural for popular rankings to be higher due to the influx of art house, international and straight to video releases. Popular rankings are taken from IMDb and are fluid. Most box office rankings are taken from The Numbers website (domestic)

Scoring b-p

10+ = excellent
9 to -9 = good
-10 to -29 = avg
-30 to -49 = poor
-50 and below = very poor

Example

Tally

Excellent (10pts each) = 14
Good (5pts each) = 6
Average (0pts each) = 1
Poor (-5pts each) = 0⭐
Very poor (-10pts each) = 1
Pop top 20 bonus (5pts each) = 7

Pity there is no data for The Killers and Point Blank - I bet they'd be worth 10 points each.

Point Blank (67) P33 and 17th rank for vote count for 1967

The Killers (64) P53 and 39th rank for vote count for 1964.
