Since there are more top rated movies nowadays, like Gravity, it would be nice to have a "top" movies page of a higher number, like "IMDB top 350."

They probably won't implement it (for regular users) since it's a feature of the paid subscription version of the site, IMDb Pro.

However, with advanced search, you can always create such a thing yourself.

The thing is that a lot of new films bubble up into the Top 250 and then drop out again - it is a pattern of the voting where people looking forward to it see it in the cinema, people interested in watching it pick it up on home media and then everyone else catches up when it gets shown on TV. So there is usually a naturally early high vote which tends to drop over time - Man of Steel is a recent example. Meanwhile those in the chart have usually stood the test of time and accumulated enough votes to remain stable for the timebeing - Shawshank Redemption is the first film I'm aware of passing 1 million votes.

So I see no real need for this.
