The Gif: Heath Ledger's near perfect portrayal of the Joker in 2008's The Dark Knight gets the gif treatment thanks to this captivating clip of his "Congrats Commissionaire Gordon" clap.

The Wolf's Wedding Dance
The Gif: Here's five time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio throwing some seriously questionable shapes as King of Greed Jordan Belfort in The Wolf Of Wall Street . This is truly a gif of beauty.

Regardless of whether it's in a club, the supermarket or even just cruising home on the bus, if there's a song that just gets you shaking that tailfeather, then chances are this is the gif for you. And you probably don't look this cool dancing to it either.
Professor Porter's Happy Dance

How To Use It On Tumblr: You've got two options with this one.
One: go literal, and post it underneath every gratuitous foodporn photo the internet has to offer. Two: objectify, objectify, objectify. Just rediscovered the screencaps from Ryan Gosling's shirtless Crazy, Stupid Love scene? This is the perfectly pervy gif for you.
The Face Melt
The Gif: Arguably one of cinema's most iconic scenes (not to mention the one that traumatised 80s kiddies the world over) there are few movie moments better suited to giffage than this from Raiders Of The Lost Ark .
How To Use It On Tumblr: Save this one for the wide-eyed 4am Wikipedia visits, where you stumble across a page featuring every horrifiying and ghoulish urban legend based in your vicinity.

21 Jump Street's Middle Finger Move

The News Team Jump
The Gif: "There's only one thing a man can do when he's suffering from a spiritual and existential funk...Buy new suits!"

How To Use It On Tumblr: When you and your gang all manage to bag tickets to Glastonbury (or something far more niche and incredibly weird that you're far too embarrassed to admit to so you'll pretend it's Glastonbury).
Emma's Sexy Bling Ring Dance
The Gif: When the trailer for Sofia Coppola's black comedy The Bling Ring landed back in 2013, the internet lost its collective mind.
It seemed that within seconds, every Tumblr dashboard from Hertforshire to the Philippines was crammed with the image of a post-Hermione Emma Watson shaking her stuff suggestively on the dancefloor. This, ladies and gents, is gif royalty.
How To Use It On Tumblr: Surely no-one could deny its power as a flirtation device?
Let all the web's nerds and introverts use this as a way of giving a cyber come-on and guaranteed it'd allow a whole bunch of Tumblr users to profess their attraction to each other. Gold.
Jay Gatsby's Toast
The Gif: Leo actually gives Emma Stone a run for her money in terms of Tumblr popularity but, after sifting through countless "poor Leo still doesn't have an Oscar" posts ( including one rather spectacular McConaughey / Wolf Of Wall Street taunt gif that everyone should see ), we couldn't ignore the simple brilliance of this charmer from The Great Gatsby.
How To Use It On Tumblr : DiCaprio is giving full Hollywood superstar in this, so it needs to be reserved for a really special moment. It's a genuine, heartfelt, "congratulations on your new job / relationship / Macbook Pro", and it needs to be given without any trace of internet snark.

The Citizen Kane Applause
The Gif: Orson Welles' determined clap from Citizen Kane is one of the internet's all-time favourite gifs - we love the gravitas using such a celebrated movie gives to our giffing.
After his young wife puts in a stunningly average performance in her opera debut, Kane attempts to persuade the suitably unimpressed audience that what they just witnessed was opera magic.
How To Use It On Tumblr: Most people use this one for your standard cyber "well done", but taken in context it has a whole different meaning - less "you're wonderful" and more "you're awful but I'm going to pretend that's not the case".
Use it wisely and no one will ever pick up on the hidden message...
The Plate Smash

The Clueless Bed Flirt
The Gif: Cher Horowitz: leader, teacher, trendsetter.

Jack's Bar Visit

Emotionally Sensitive Elliot
The Gif: Given the chance to become anyone, or indeed anything, thanks to his new buddy Satan (Liz Hurley), Elliot Richards (Brendan Fraser) chooses the sensitive, arty type, so that he can better understand the needs and desires of women.
Little does he know how just how literal Satan can be.
How To Use It On Tumblr: Just look at his whiny face. This is only applicable to the most ridiculous first world problems - read: running out of olives, losing Twitter followers or having the latest episode of Game Of Thrones spoiled for you mere minutes before you sit down to watch it.

How To Use It On Tumblr: "Hey, guys! I've brought in a box of doughnuts, they're sitting in the kitchen. Enjoy!"

Edward Scissorhands Comes For Dinner
The Gif: Half-finished science project Edward (Johnny Depp) never found his sharp fingers to be too much of an issue when he was holed up in his mansion alone, but he quickly discovers that they don't lend themselves to more human problems, like using your cutlery politely.
How To Use It On Tumblr: This is instantly recognisable as the moment you find yourself in a swanky restaurant, facing a bowl of rice and a pair of chopsticks. Give us the scissorhands anyday.

The Gif: Jean-Pierre Jeunet's utterly charming 2001 rom-com with a twist is crammed full of quirky plotlines and unexpected bursts of CGI, the best of which has to be Amélie (Audrey Tatou)'s immediate rush of adoration for handsome stranger Nino (Mathieu Kassovitz).

The Ultimate Eye Roll
The Gif: Baby Jane (Bette Davis) was voted in at number fourty-four on the American Film Institute's list of the Fifty Best Villains of American Cinema, so it's hardly surprising that she can give one hell of a sardonic eye roll.
