Reading this, I have to wonder how they defined "best". Toy Story 2 was fun, but it wasn't great. Is this a pure popularity contest?

These are the 'top 100' movies as rated by people ranking individual movies on a 1-10 scale on IMDB. So yeah, it's got a large popularity factor.

Short answer, yes, it's a pure popularity contest. The self-selection is "people who care enough to vote at IMDB", so there's a high degree of internet-nerd-centricity.

FWIW, I think *extremely* highly of Toy Story 2. Yes, it was "fun", but it also dealt with some extremely important themes that have rarely even been touched on by other movies, and (as far as I know) never as well.
