I know it is always pointless to quibble over individual rankings in lists like these. Nevertheless, the appearance of these two movies, in this order, struck me as quite amusing:

63. Solaris (1972)
62. Transformers: The Movie (1986)

Added it to icm: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/star ... genaprido/

Nice to have an updated scifi list... but not sure about including almost all Star Wars and (original) Star Trek movies.

First thing I look at with a list for a genre I'm fairly familiar with like SF, noir or westerns is, how many films haven't I seen, and do the ones I've missed look interesting? Or are they even films I'm not familiar with? This has 2 films I haven't seen, neither of which I've had much interest in seeing in the 35 years or so since they came out. Bad sign to start off with...

Pretty wretched list IMO, certainly has nothing remotely interesting that isn't already on just about every other SF list, unless you consider adding a bunch of MCU films and recent Disney Star Wars stuff "interesting". 3 non-English-language films on the list I think. 2001 down at 8th place, I guess that's a little different - reminds me of the horror list someone posted a little while back that had The Shining at around 20th. But if that's the most novel thing about such a list, it's pretty weak sauce.

Yes that's a prime disqualifier. And no Alphaville.
But I get 2 good movies that I already know about into my list.

btw it's the 80s Transformers, not the new one which is on FilmsRanked (#196) and nominated for Saturn (it was better than all other nominees other than winner, in my book)

Interesting list, even if I don't always agree with it. For starters, Prince is WAY too high...I recall him mostly just glowering and pouting through the whole film.

Other than Prince's amazing music, nothing at all is special about Purple Rain. I watched it for the first time yesterday. It's fun, but I'd hesitate to call it good.

Here's a list I made for my own jollies:
Paste's 50 Best Horror TV Shows of All Time

I just noticed there wasn't a list like this on ICM. Having said that, I DEFINITELY DO NOT want this one to ever be official. It was just a lark I felt like creating. Plus some of the entries are iffy anyway. Like with Scooby Doo, the write-up seemed to indicate they were really sort of encompassing all Scooby Doo series ever made but Where Are You and Mystery Inc were the only ones they really called out by name. The Svengoolie one is even sketchier. They basically talk about while Svengoolie is listed, they're really having it represent all regional horror hosts ever, and there's no way I'm going and trying to track down or list that.

no The Haunting of Hill House/Bly Manor ? I think the first one would have a place in the zombies list by now.

Well, this list came out in 2016. I suspect Haunting would definitely be on there if they updated it.

I know MyAnimeList has a ton of sub-genre lists that could be added with a lower weighting if you wanted to beef up the source pool more. Same for AnimeNewsNetwork and probably several other sites. Like here's a few example of horror lists I created on ICM when I was looking a while back:

Here's a fun list I put together from the titular book I bought recently. As opposed to the usual horror movie lists, the emphasis was on fun and conjuring the Halloween mood. So there's very little in the way of hyperviolent torture porn type stuff and more family-friendly choices as well as a whole section on TV episodes. Anyway, I know this is over half a year early, but it might be an neat list to work on in October.

I just glanced at the titles. Now I'm glad I didn't bother to do any more than that. :lol:

I have my own little rules for the worth of any list I see - just personal-taste things though I think they're not completely worthless for general assessments, like

ACTION - any action movie list should be at least 1/2 East Asian and no more than 1/3 21st century to be worth taking seriously.

WESTERN - no more than 1/3 Italian and no more than 1/2 post-1962.

The Vulture western list was actually pretty close to that though it wasn't terribly interesting overall. And even if a list does meet my personal criteria, sadly most of these are just going over the same ground again and again. I mean an action movie list that hit the Asian requirement mostly with John Woo, Tony Jaa, the Raid films and Jackie Chan wouldn't be that much more exciting than one with an overdose of MCU flicks.

We really need to make our own 500- or 1000-film lists, I know I've said it before and I know others have worked intermittently on such things, but all these little 50-film lists from every hipster website out there just show the sorry state of mainstream internet film evaluation to me.

(no offense to those posting them - keep 'em coming, I like looking at them even if they're mostly pretty useless)

A problem I see about genre lists is that I don't even want to imagine our fights about what constitutes an action film. :$ When 21st century CGI MCU films and the likes are at one possible bad end of the scale scenario, a too TSPian approach makes me shudder even more. I remember other places calling The General the greatest action film of all time, and then you continue with Seven Samurai (of course), Red River and some other Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd or even Eisenstein. Mh, well. While not totally wrong by definition, I assume that many people have a different thing in mind when it comes to "action films".

I do think the years 1995-2020 were more crucial to action films than 1930-1970. :shrug: I also think 1940-1970 were way more important for westerns than 1980-2020, and for another genre example, that the 1990s absolutely pale when it comes to horror films compared to the 2010s. Opinions, I guess.

Well you're always going to have problems with definitions - no matter what size the list. I'm sure everybody who's seen a large chunk of TSZDT probably has a few films that they personally would in no way define as "horror". I've seen a big chunk of the TSP noir list and there are plenty of films there that are not noir to me, regardless of quality, starting with Dirty Harry. Just. Not. Noir. But I guess plenty of critics and people who have probably seen more than I have disagree. The thing is with a big ranked list like TSZ, most of the questionable items won't make it near the top and I think a properly compiled action, or western, or musical, or sports, or whatever list would be similar. I could imagine The General making the top 100 of a massive action list compilation, but probably not the top 10 or 20. Seven Samurai to me is probably the single most important film in the development of the genre, if you had to pick just one - but does that mean it should be #1? Maybe, maybe not. But certainly it would figure highly and (unfortunately IMO) so would a lot of MCU films, which are probably to young action fans today what Raiders of the Lost Ark was to me at 16, or what the early Bond films were to the guys born in 1950. And critics, especially in our internet era of everybody and every site making a zillions lists of every, often try to appeal to younger tastes to be more "relevant".

Anyway regardless of whether or not any such list ever appears, or whether it would be half as great as I can imagine it, it shouldn't stop us from pointing out the mediocrity of so many of these lists that get posted that seem geared much more towards clickbait than thoughtful criticism or dialogue, and that rarely stray beyond the most obvious choices.

Erhm...

#1 Mad Max Fury Road: "George Miller made not just the best action movie ever made, but one of the finest artistic works that’s ever been created through the medium of film."

#4: Seven Samurai. :huh:
I just glanced at the titles. Now I'm glad I didn't bother to do any more than that. :lol:

I have my own little rules for the worth of any list I see - just personal-taste things though I think they're not completely worthless for general assessments, lik
I used to have the rule that if I'd seen most of the movies on a list it was crap. It worked really well for a long time too, but I do seem to have made enough inroads in the world of cinema that it's no longer a reliable rule. Bummer. :lol:

And I didn't read all the text, I just thought I should read the justification and that one line really stood out. I liked Mad Max Fury Road, it's a fine movie, but I don't think it will be held up as an example of superb film making 50 years from now.

1000misspenthours.com is a website inspired by the badmovies.org that started in 2003 and it's still going on.
This isn’t strictly a B-movie site, nor is it strictly a horror movie site, although the great bulk of the movies reviewed here will be B-horror films. My instinct is to say that my business is exploitation movies, but recent years have seen the definition of that term contract to the point that it no longer gets the job done either. So instead, I’ll simply say this: For the most part, if a particular movie played or would have played at a drive-in or an old Times Square grindhouse, you can reasonably expect a review of it to show up here one of these days. If it didn’t or wouldn’t have, then you probably won’t. There will surely be exceptions, but that’s the rule of thumb around here.
He has reviewed 1642 movies and like badmovies.org he has is own rating system.
El Santo’s way-too-fucking-complicated rating system:
***** = Genius -***** = So bad it’s genius
****½ = Just short of genius -****½ = So bad it’s just short of genius
**** = Excellent -**** = So bad it’s excellent
***½ = Very good -***½ = So bad it’s very good
*** = Good -*** = So bad it’s good
**½ = Decent -**½ = So bad it’s decent
** = Acceptable -** = Bad, but it has its moments (probably not the ones the director intended)
*½ = Pretty bad -*½ = Bad, but with one or two moments of redeeming accidental comedy
* = Bad -* = Might be mildly amusing one time...
½ = Really bad -½ = ...But probably not
0 = It’s like the doctor says in Creepshow: “This is going to be extremely painful, Mr. Verrill...”
Fans of b-movies, grindhouse, horror, etc, may want to check it out!

If you're looking for more anime hidden gems, you might be interested in this series of reviews: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/buried ... re/archive

I discovered some great movies thanks to these reviews.
Dredging up this old post to let you know I made an ICM list based on the Buried Treasure reviews:
Anime News Network: Buried Treasure

Thought somebody might be interested in some more obscure anime recommendations.

Someone posted about this in the TSZDT thread, and I thought it was interesting enough to add to icm. Perhaps the only horror list I'll ever be interested in working on?
