One other thing that would be nice would be to create a column for average rating by director so I could use it to find those directors I've seen just one or two gems from and might not recognize by name.
How's this? :)

Other than your average for Bergman being too low, that's great. I can't wait to try this thing out.

There's something wrong with Tarantino having 15 features, though.

Actually, I've found that the interface files they put online contain films that are not on the website. Look what feature films it shows for Tarantino:

Image

I don't know what Come Drink With Me is, but it's not marked as "suspended" in the interface files, which happens to entries that are incorrect. Faster, Pussycat Kill Kill (2015) isn't marked as suspended either, so both of those films show in the results and they're impossible to exclude since they show as any other kind of normal entry. Love Birds in Bondage is unfinished and destroyed, but removing entries like this is very difficult, or time-consuming anyway, although this particular film would be easy to recognize and exclude since it has a simple (unfinished) tag in the title, but unavailable films can have many ways in which they're marked like it in the interfaces. Then the Four Rooms and Grindhouse entries are both segments, these would be easy to recognize and categorize for inclusion/exclusion. Sin City is marked as a special guest director entry which is very difficult/tine-consuming to recognize and not worth it, since those kinds of entries also have dozens of different ways they're marked as such.

Don't they mark films as in production somewhere? You could always use release dates to exclude films with years after the current one, though that's still leaves a year's time gap. I understand you can't do much about lost films but there's got to be a way to exclude films films that haven't even been released yet.

No, they don't mark films as in production in any of the interface files, or have any other kind of status info available. Here's what the data looks like for Tarantino:

Code: Select all

Tarantino, Quentin	Come Drink with Me (????)
			Death Proof (2007)
			Django Unchained (2012)
			Faster, Pussycat Kill Kill (2015)
			Four Rooms (1995)  (segment "The Man from Hollywood")
			Grindhouse (2007)  (segment "Death Proof")
			Inglourious Basterds (2009)
			Jackie Brown (1997)
			Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
			Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
			Kill Bill: Vol. 3 (2014)
			Love Birds in Bondage (1983)  (unfinished)
			My Best Friend's Birthday (1987)
			Pulp Fiction (1994)
			Reservoir Dogs (1992)
			Sin City (2005)  (special guest director)
			"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000) {Grave Danger: Volume 1 (#5.24)}
			"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000) {Grave Danger: Volume 2 (#5.25)}
			"ER" (1994) {Motherhood (#1.24)}
			"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (2003) {(#3.75)}
You couldn't even exclude Come Drink With Me by a year since it doesn't have a release year. Just gotta hope that IMDb either adds a release year to it later or makes it suspended. They update the interface files weekly.

Damn, that's really thin. How do you manage to cross reference that with runtimes? For Come drink with me you could always exclude films with (????) as a release year I don't think any real films have that as a release year.

There's a separate file with runtimes: ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/mirrors/ftp.imdb.com/pub/

Also, there appears to be 640 entries with (????) as a year, that's out of 1,415,540 entries :D I guess it's safe to exclude all of them?

Great stuff! But I particularly love this idea about a website where people could compete doing filmographies! The problem is that most people are not technically inclined and would be put off by things like csv exports, downloading interface files for offline use etc. - if this could be integrated into a simple to use website that would be very cool indeed!

You can't submit a film to imdb without a release year, so yeah. Those films are all announced titles without a release date or canceled titles.

There's a ratings.list.gz which has ratings and number of votes. Ignore any movie with a release date past 2010 with under 5 votes.

Just finished with Jean Vigo as well. Updated the post for me and Arucard, don't know if anyone else hasn't been updated.

Completed Miyazaki (features at least, hoping that all of the shorts become available one day).

Seen all for Takahata except The Story of Yanagawa's Canals (documentary) and The Tale of Princess Kaguya (been meaning to get round to that for a long time).

Seen all for Clint Eastwood other than Bird and his latest four (J. Edgar, Jersey Boys, American Sniper, Sully). I used to watch all of his films but I guess I lost interest in the last few years.

Seen 28/36 or Rohmer.

For me, I think it's (let's say 4 minimum features):

Stanley Kubrick
Charlie Chaplin (feature lengths, anyway)
Coen Bros
Paul Thomas Anderson (counting him because Phantom Thread hasn't been released here yet)
Lynne Ramsay
Alejandro Inarritu
Andrei Tarkovsky
Quentin Tarantino (ish, only seen half of Deathproof)
Wes Anderson

Welles should really be on this list, I just need to see Macbeth. Lynch as well, but it's harder to bring myself to watch Dune. Some day.

From actors, I've completed Kate Hepburn's full filmography.

There are quite a few I've finished, but the rarest one, the one which I have finished but nobody else even comes close, is Jon Jost... he also happens to be maybe my favourite director. Coincidence??!
