Well, there is no doubt some crossover in films seen, but what about the lists?... unless people are listing everything.
I was talking about the lists. I opened most of the posted lists so far and noticed a few titles popping up multiple times.

I was talking about the lists. I opened most of the posted lists so far and noticed a few titles popping up multiple times.
I imagine if I had listed hundreds I would have some crossover, but I only picked my top 40 (plus 1), and perhaps the only thing that might attract is that most of mine are not as obscure as many others folks have listed. In fact, half are available through amazon channels.

I also like being able to comment briefly on the films I have chosen, and more than 40 comments feels overwhelming to me:

At #41, I chose Moment of Danger, a fairly obscure late noirish movie from my birth year that was Dorothy Dandridg'e last. It also stars the excellent Trevor Howard, and was directed by Laslo Benedek.

At #40 is Zona Sur, a film I saw on a plane trip back from Brazil to the United States, is available on Prime. An examination of class in South America (Bolivia), it stands out due to its camera work in and around the estate where it is filmed. Winner of the Sundance award for World cinema, 2010.

At #39, another 60's movie Sammy Going South (which I remember as A Boy Ten Feet Tall) that was a favorite during my childhood about a boy who travels overland across Africa, and his adventures along the way, including those involving Edward G Robinson. Directed by Alexander Mackendrick, who made several of my favorites as a child.

At #38, Village Dreams, a reflection of childhood set during WW2, in rural Japan, and made by a filmmaker I met when I travelled to Japan almost 20 years earlier. Won a Silver Bear.

At #37 is Stolen Life, one of the many good Chinese films that examine contemporary life in China that I have seen since I met my wife in 2013. China may have turned into a land of promise in the 21st century but there has also been a lot of collateral damage, and "promises dashed." On Prime. From Film Movement. Winner of best narrative feature, Tribeca.

At #36, Flamenco Flamenco, one of the many staged musical performance pieces by Carlos Saura, and one of my favorites, not only because of the staging and camera work, but because of the amazing performances they support

At #35 is another Spanish drama from the 80's set in Post Civil War Spain, La Mitad Del Cielo, and carried by a couple of sterling performances. Winner of 3 Goyas.

At #34 is Hecho in Mexico, a very memorable musical celebration of contemporary Mexico. Seen on Prime or Netflix.

At #33 is Ba Yue, another of my favorite little films that catches life in transitioning China (this one deals with family). Winner of multiple awards

At #32 is Vinicius, a Brazilian doc about the great musical songwriters of Bossa Nova, Vinicius de Moraes that also captures an amazing historical time in Rio and Brazil. Multiple award winner. Seen on the plane coming back from Brazil.

At #31 is Light of My Eyes, one of the many very good films released on video by Film Movement. This is a poignant tale of loneliness and love. Winner of 4 Donatellos, and 3 prizes at Venice

At #30, Three Dollars, Good Australian film about a guy who loses almost everything and... Would seem to be more popular, given its mainstream style.

At #29 A Friend of the Deceased, a Russian black comedy about a down and out man who takes out a contract on himself, then changes his mind- catches life in Russia right after glasnost

At #28, Butley. American Playhouse did some really good adaptations of plays in the mid 70's, and this was one of the better ones. Directed by Harold Pinter, with outstanding performances

At #27, Not of this World. Italian drama about a nun who winds up with an abandoned baby who catalyzes some changes in her life. Same director as my #31 film. Winner of 5 Donatellos, including best picture.

At #26, Mado, a forgotten gem from Claude Sautet and Michele Piccoli.

At #25, Far North. Written and directed by Sam Shepard, about a family in the NW U.S. starring Charles Durning in a tour de force as the patriarch, and Jessica Lange. Has the distinction of being the lowest rated film on imdb (4.9) that I have liked.

At #24, Hija Unica. Might be the second lowest rated film (5.5), but as it is from Argentina, and structurally / thematically different, perhaps that's not surprising. Saw it on Prime.

At #23, Eu Te Amo. About loneliness and passion, with the incomparable Sonia Braga. Have always found it strange that films dealing with eroticism are rated so low, while films dealing with violence are so celebrated.

At #22 , The Great Water. A reflection on childhood set in Stalinist Yugoslavia.

At #21, Cold Light. Have seen quite a few gems from Iceland, and this is one of them. About a boy with psychic powers, dealing with the fall out of what he foresaw as an adult.

At #20, A Festa de Margarette- a back and white, surreal, silent comedy from Brazil. Available on prime, and yet completely obscure. Seen at a Global Lens Fest.

At #19, Mávahlátur. Another Icelandic gem about a woman who comes back to her town after years abroad to extol her revenge on those who mistreated her before. Very well done.

At #18, Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Francesco Rosi adapted this brilliant novelette by Garcia Marquez with an international cast and production team in the late 80's, yet very few seem to know about it. I was crazy for Ornella Muti back in those days...

At #17, Men... One of two films in my top 20 by Doris Dorrie, who I consider one of the best working female filmmakers out there. She tends to combine drama and comedy with a sharp wit that might remind folks of Toni Erdmann. Winner of multiple German film awards. On Prime.

At #16, Men at Work. Written by Abbas Kiarostami, this largely single location film takes place at a pull out on the highway where friends on a road trip must come to terms with various dramatic / comic aspects of their nature that also serve as a political allegory. On Prime. From Film Movement.

At #15, Los Perros. Just as Spanish films seem to be haunted by the history Franco, so does Chile seem to be haunted by Pinochet. Couple that with an examination of class privilege and denial, and we are introduced to a very interesting "anti-heroine." Multiple award winner. Seen on Prime.

At #14, Chaika. A Russian film set on the Steppes, about the story of how a boy came to be. Largely memorable for its imagery and setting.

At #13, Tai Yang Chao Chang Sheng Qi (Sun Also Rises)- A Chinese fable, involving interconnected stories by Wen Jiang. Very famous in China, but practically unknown in the West.

At #12, Witnesses. One of many excellent films about the Bosnian war and/or its aftermath. Taut, dramatic suspense from Film Movement. Festival prize winner.

At #11 La Sangre Brota. Another unique film from Argentina, though this one follows a more Noirish plot (down less conventional pathways).

My Top 10:

At #10, Lea, Harsh life experiences produce two damaged souls that come to life again through the love of one another. Powerful film, and one of many on my list seen at the SF International or MVFF. Winner of multiple international awards.

At #9, La Ville Est Tranquille, Another film about harsh realities, and a variety of people trying to find their way through them. This one, set in Marseille seemed like a cross between something by Altman and something by Haneke.

At #8, A Tout de Suite, Another French film high on my list, this would appeal to anyone interested in seeing a well-made tribute to French New Wave cinema.

At #7, Carnages- yet another French film on the list, but one with a tip of the cap to Bunuel this time.

At #6, Jestem, One of the very best, most poignant films I have seen about wayward children.

At #5, Violent. This one catalogs the final memories of a young woman caught up in a catastrophic event. Multiple award winner.

At #4, Vazante. I've already spoken about this one a half dozen times on this board, and last time I checked it is still readily available on Prime. Colonial Brazil in the hinterlands.

At #3 Last Images of Shipwreck, by Eliseo Subiela, a poetic, surrealist Argentinian director of 3 of my favorite films of the 80's and early 90's.

At #2 Enlightenment Guaranteed. Perhaps my favorite film by Doris Dorrie. About two very different brothers who wind up lost in Tokyo on their way to a Buddhist retreat. As hilarious as it is smart.

At #1, Frozen. an Indian film (from one of the festivals I mentioned) that I would love to get a copy of. Amazing cinematography, and storyline with a unique twist.

What's the movie <50 checks that is on most official top lists??

During my survey I came across:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/el+mundo+sigue/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/woo ... ui+sarang/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/gyeolhon+iyagi/

Registered users may have a tool to filter this more easily. Since 2 out of 3 titles I found first are Korean movies, the highest scoring (maybe 4 or even 5???) one also is from Korea?? There are at least two more Korean films on 3 Official Top lIsts with less than 50 checks...

I might be in the wrong here, but I don't think joachimt said anything to spite you. From what I gather, Arirang is an obvious candidate since it is the only (?) film on 3 official lists that cannot be seen (because it is presumed to be lost).

The link posted is actually quite useful. Looking through the data I have, I can assure you that 3 official lists is the most a film with less than 50 checks has.

Just for fun - Films with least checks:
1 list - Lots of 0 checks - for example: Lluvias (2017) https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/lluvias/
2 lists - Transit (1980) - 2 checks - https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/transit-1980/
3 lists - Arirang (1926) - 14 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/arirang-1926/
4 lists - Imagination (1948) - 55 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/kalpana/
5 lists - Sant Tukaran (1936) - 97 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/sant+tukaram/
6 lists - Mandala (1981) - 131 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/mandala-1981/
7 lists - Minamata (1971) - 146 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/mina ... ono+sekai/
8 lists - La région centrale (1971) - 310 checks - http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/la+region+centrale/

Indeed. After my post with Arirang I posted a link that gives exactly the answer to your question. Not sure what the problem is, YUME.

Thanks. Are https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/die ... er+jugend/ and https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/die ... gend-1992/ two pages for the exact same production, just with different capitalization of the title?

Edited to add: Apparently so, and I see from https://discuss.icheckmovies.com/t/dupl ... ie/821/573 that you have been trying to get the two pages merged.

Ray Sharkey was really great.
And I completely believed that Peter Gallagher would've been a teen idol in 1961-- without question.

That is 100% the wrong conclusion.

I dislike the "oh, my list looks so puny, I'll add some 7s and 6s because they're not that bad either" situations.
Ondy does have a point here. I found myself nominating too many films for our latest <400 poll; like "bad 7s" and "actually a 6, but somehow interesting and just saw it on another user's list, so it might be worth something after all .. ah heck; i'll include it".
Then the film actually made it into the final official list and I was like "Um, if I hadn't voted for this, my other, better choice would have closely made the list!" :down:


Let's see what I can come up with. Gonna be a disaster. :ph43r:
Trying not to spoil the results for me now - want to be wholly surprised. Like, which films ARE able to gather 6 voters. :huh: We have a handful of German users, so ...
For me, I put on lists just 7s I really really like. 7,5s to say so. I had this thoughs about blocking my own more favorited films too, in the very begining of making lists for the forum polls.

I'm a very tough rater on IMDB. 11,000 features and only 10% rate higher than 7. I figure if a film has under 50 checks, that means most of us haven't seen it. There's going to be a much larger pool of films to begin with and if I can help boost one that I rated a 6 but think is worth mentioning, I did it.

Yeah. Regardless of how tough one is, or how many films one likes, the 50 check thing is a pretty low bar to shimmy under and get multiple people to vote on something. A lot of the lists submitted are very short, and there's going to be very little crossover I think overall, so I don't see in the case of this poll in particular a problem with people being a bit more expansive. Not an issue for me as I'm a generous rater to begin with but I could easily see this ending up as a rather useless exercise if the really hard raters with small lists dominate. Lots of lists I've looked at where I've seen 0 films, and only one so far which has more than 5 films that I also picked - and that was one of the larger lists.

There are so many people on this forum who have seen thousands of movies, just statistically speaking this would normally be enough for them to generate a list of 100+ high enough rated movies... I also expect cinephiles to naturally look beyond the mainstream... but if it turns out to be mostly short lists, I guess I have to reevaluate my outlook...

But for now I don't see it as negative as OldAle1 yet... I've seen plenty of overlap with my lists across other lists I've taken a look at

Since there apparently won't be any IMDb filter to make the list just use this list and ignore all the ineligible films, if you are OK with that, Tim2460, and it doesn't create any extra work for you.

Hm, as a cinephile that sent a very short list, let me explain a bit. I explore outside of the mainstream a lot, but i'm rather not the type of guy that goes straight to San Marino while never travelling to Italy and I tend to see the movies that are either official or with high chances to be my next favorites based on existing ratings/reviews, so small chances many of them will have that little checks. Most of the ~40 options I had (despite watching about 5000 shorts and features) were the internationally obscure films from my/my girfriend's country with couple of movies that i randomly watched on tv once or downloaded for god knows what reason. Last year i expanded my watchlist from 200 to around 2000 titles from every era, genre and country but still, excluding tv series only 32 are below 50 checks, mostly unofficial Polish movies, so even if i watch 300 movies this year, my list would be maybe 3-4 titles longer.
