I was able to find 32 lists. I took the 32 lists and added all their content into a spreadsheet, noting the rank of every film. I ended up averaging the rankings each movie got (there were 68 that were on at least 2 lists) and dividing that average by a factor of the number of lists that movie was on.

  • The Commitments (1991) – 17 lists
  • The Quiet Man (1952) – 17 lists
  • The Wind That Shakes the Barley (2006) – 16 lists
  • In the Name of the Father (1993) – 15 lists
  • Sing Street (2016) – 15 lists

Here are links to the lists I used along with dates the lists were created:
