From Kinopoisk, the Russian online database of information related to films, it is one of the most popular movie portals of the Runet (ru), the Russian-language community on the Internet and websites. The website has 93 million visits per month. Among the sites dedicated to films, it occupies 3rd place in the world in terms of traffic (thank you, Wikipedia). Note the list is 243 items long rather than 250, as the seven (7) Sherlock Holmes' Russian television series episodes were removed in efforts to stick to theater films as closely as possible.
