Thanks! And how about these:

Saturday Night Live: The Best of Molly Shannon (2001) (V)
SNL Fanatic (2000) (TV)

Seems I managed to find the other shorts.
Yes, those 3 music videos are pretty cool (especially Across The Universe) even though musically I would prefer "Save Me" by Aimee Mann :)

I love Fiona Apple's music (and Aimee Mann's). SNL fanatic can be found on the Best of Molly Shanon, it's quite fun actually :)

PT Anderson is so whatever. But I'm sort of interested in his music videos. I used to like Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann. Saw Apple once (in Knoxville) and saw Aimee Mann twice in Nashville and once in Los Angeles. I think her recent stuff is blah though. Anyway.

One of my favorite quotes ever is "If Fiona Apple had played her cards right, she could have been Mrs. Pt. Anderson." :lol:

BTW, this thread could be in the running for the most quotes. Yay.

Who said that quote ( I agree though). P.T. Anderson is the greatest, you too will one day understand his genius and you will then repent and lament your philistine approach to his brilliant work B)

I have no idea. Some douchebag at another movieforum whose name escapes me. But yeah, I appreciate his genius I just don't particularly enjoy his films or care that much about them.

I am so bad at recognizing people, yet one of my only non-Q&A celebrity sightings was at the Sherman Oaks Arclight. I saw PT Anderson. I recognized Maya Rudolph first though. Then their kid. Then I just supposed that was him along with them.

I'm going to keep this one going :) Well I think PTA would be high in the attractive director pool I have to start soon. (at least versus most of the others)

I don't really like Aimee Mann's current work either. I still like Apple though and I wish she was more prolific. Have you seen the Iconoclasts series episode with Fiona Apple and Tarantino, it's quite compelling and Quentin I think has a crush because he's being really sweet and genuine in a way that would shock a bunch of people.

I don't think PTA is attractive or unattractive one way or the other.

The idea of QT & Fiona is cute. Has she done anything since her third recording? I have not heard about it, but then I am not big on music anymore.

I suppose, add him to mine as well. I thought the Outlaw was by far inferior. Even though Jane Russell looked great. If there's not a (good) story, I will take off major points.

I think I'm going to do something crazy, and it won't be today, but I think I'm going to finish Hitchcock and Chabrol's filmography on the same day.

You might have to remove Wes Anderson when his new film comes out. How does that work anyway?

This may not be the most appropriate thread to post this in, but I can't think of where else to post this, so here goes...

Image

This is a piece of software I've been working on for the past week or two. The screenshot is quite telling, but let me tell some specifics.

First of all, it uses the full IMDb database, which is built from the interfaces they share online so that you have the full IMDb database on your hard drive for instantaneous database queries and results.

Then, by loading your IMDb ratings in the CSV format (which you can download from imdb.com) in the software it builds a list of all the directors you've seen at least one film from and shows you, from left to right:

Watched: On the left is the number of films you've seen and on the right is the number of films they've directed.

By the way, all the numbers you see match the options you've selected via the checkboxes and it updates all the data instantaneously.

Num to go: The number of films you haven't seen.

% to go: Same as above, but the percentage value.

Runtime: How many minutes you have left from completing the filmography. This may not always show the correct value if the runtime is missing from the IMDb database.

You can also sort the table by any column in any order by just clicking a column header, e.g. here I've sorted it by the "Watched" column in the order that shows the largest number first.

Below you can also see some options. If you want to see just feature films, check only the feature films box and it'll show you only feature films. If you want to see all feature films and shorts, you'd check both "feature films" and "shorts", etc. Here I've selected to only show data for feature films.

Neat, huh?

Image

I've already used it to complete one filmography as I was only missing a 9 minute short from one director :)

There's still a few things that need to be done so can't quite yet release it, but something to get excited about at least ;) I also need to make an export feature, because building the database takes a while even on my FAST computer, so that users with older PCs can also get statistics.

This should be an excellent motivator to complete more filmographies as you can easily pick easy filmographies to complete.

Another thought while programming this was how neat it would be to have a website where you could compete with completing filmographies, see what the most completed filmographies are, etc.

Anyway, who wants to have the first go? :D When I feel like it's ready I'll probably pick some beta testers.

Oh man, I would have loved this a few years ago. Actually, I'd still love it. 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.
