I've never seen the movie or any part of the Evangelion franchise, but it's really highly regarded. The End of Evangelion has a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 10 reviews, and is regularly listed as one of the best anime movies of all time. A lot of movie-adjacent people like it. Wes Anderson, for example, considered it one of the 10 best animated movies ever. On Letterboxd it's the 22nd highest rated movie and 6% of people that have watched it call it one of their favourite movies.

Xe and Ze are two examples of gender pronouns commonly called neopronouns. So if you followed somebody on this site that had one of those options selected in the settings, you might get a notification like "Exampleperson added Puss in Boots: The Last Wish to zir watchlist."

Neopronouns are sets of pronouns like He/him/his, She/her/her or They/them/their that people have coined recently and that aren't used historically. They are used primarily by nonbinary people, though some surveys indicate only a minority of nonbinary people use them, and often they will also be okay with people using non-neopronouns as well.

If you want to read more about neopronouns you can read this article:

Or this survey on how nonbinary people use language like pronouns:

For people curious about a missing movie, you can see how many users have selected it by going to the page for the movie on the website and looking on the right side above the bar graph of the ratings.

You'll see here that Terminator 2 has 8.1k "fans", which are people that have chosen it. It's hard to tell how many users overall you'd need to make it onto one of these lists, but the movie with the fewest, The Worst Person in the World (ranked 100 on She), has 11k total fans.

See my main comment for more of a breakdown, but it's a venn diagram of the top 100 movies for users with each set of pronouns. Jaws was just on the He list so it goes in the blue section, Moonlight was on the He and She lists so it goes in the purple, and Her was on all three so it goes in the white.

The source for this diagram are the full lists of the 100 top favorite movies on Letterboxd, which you can read here:

These lists were compiled in September 2022, so partially reflect the popularity of movies at the time. The top movies in each of these lists are:

All Users She/her He/him Xe/xyr, Ze/hir, Ze/zir
1. Interstellar La La Land Interstellar Interstellar
2. La La Land Little Women (2019) The Dark Knight Fight Club
3. Fight Club Pride & Prejudice (2005) Whiplash The Dark Knight
4. Parasite 10 Things I Hate About You Fight Club Whiplash
5. Whiplash Dead Poets Society Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse The Shawshank Redemption
6. Everything Everywhere All At Once Parasite Parasite Pulp Fiction
7. The Dark Knight Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Pulp Fiction American Psycho
8. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Lady Bird Everything Everywhere All At Once GoodFellas
9. Spiderverse Interstellar The Empire Strikes Back Parasite
10. Pulp Fiction Portrait of a Lady on Fire La La Land Taxi Driver

On Letterboxd accounts are referred to by the pronouns They/their by default. In the settings people can opt to change it to He/his, He/their, She/her, She/their, Xe/xyr, Ze/hir, Ze/zir or It/its. It's assumed that each of these lists covers all the options that include She, He and Xe/Ze. They and It users aren't covered in these lists. The diagram shows only the overlapping presence of movies in the top 100 for each pronoun set.

This project has been sitting open on my computer for 5 months now, and has gone through a lot of revision. I was initially sucked in by the Letterboxd logo and style that seemed to beg to be turned into a Venn diagram, but I never got to the point where I thought it was perfect, so I hope people think it's at least interesting.

I made this using google sheets and the graphics program GIMP.
