Movies have traditionally been projected at 24 frames per second, so here at The Film Magazine we rate each film out of 24. Over the years, upwards of 30 contributors have used our scoring system to rank classics and recent releases alike. Of the hundreds of films reviewed, some of them have been deemed outstanding. Here, in the The Film Magazine Hall of Fame, you can read the reviews of every film to have been rated 21 (or more) out of 24; the traditional 5 star rating.
