IMDb top movies

Can IMDb provide me with the IMDb list of top 5000 movies?

@Ran We do not produce an official Top 5,000 movies list, sorry.  You can access the Top 250 movies at https://www.imdb.com/chart/top/ 

You can also use Advanced Title Search at https://www.imdb.com/search/title/ to generate an unofficial Top 5,000 list using various criteria, for example, controlling for the the number of votes.  One such list is https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=feature&genres=!documentary,!short&sort=user_rating,desc&num_votes=25000, which has the same minimum vote requirement as the Top 250 (but is not restricted to votes from regular voters, which account for differences in ratings and positions vs. the Top 250 as described here). 

For more information on ratings on IMDb, please see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/ratings-faq/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV

Hope this helps.
