    Arrow Movies By (The) Years(s)

    I was browsing some website and found two captions that stood out:
    "Most Underrated Movies By The Years"
    "Best Movies By Year"

    Any differences between "by the years" and "by year" I should worry about?

    Just a thought - some people may not be answering because they are deterred by the lines I have quoted above. I was - I have no idea what they mean.

    Re: Movies By (The) Years(s)

    I tried to provide links to where I got the semi-sentences, but some server/software problems prevented that. In the first post, the two lines that start with "www" are the "modified" link. The links are removed now.

    Re: Movies By (The) Years(s)

    So, "Best Movies By The Years" would be ungrammatical?

    It's certainly not natural English.
