38 is definitely low when you consider movies like LOTR is ahead of it.
...or The Dark Knight, which I think is a very good movie, just not good enough to be a classic IMO. I don't trust IMDB lists, as even Slumdog Millionaire is in front of Taxi Driver. Again, decent movie, just doesn't compare to many of the true gems. The IMDB Top 250 might as well be a hype barometer for current movies with some kind of subjective wow factor.
