New Year, New Top 250

After many years we are going to be making another list of the top 250 greatest action movies of all time.
All through the year everybody is free to join our discord and help us decide this new list.

How it’s going to go:

  • All movies featured on the Top 250 For 2014 are automatically eligible.
  • On the discord everybody can nominate 25 action movies that they think deserve a spot. They will be listed below on this page. A movie needs to be nominated only once.
  • The sooner you nominate a film, the more time others will have to watch it. But once nominated you can’t change your pick, though you don’t have to come up with 25 titles right away.
  • Some time in December (exact date TBD) no more titles can be nominated and a list with all eligible movies will be made to be filled in by anyone who wishes to vote.
  • Early January 2025, ten years after the previous list, the AOBG Action Top 250 2024 will be unveiled.
Oh, and a happy new year!
