How is everyone filtering their checks on ICM?
I believe you use Criticker, jeff_v. I find that to be helpful on this sort of list.
Here's how I did it. I believe this is less complicated than it looks:
1. On Criticker, select the "All Your Ratings" tab.
2. On the "Popularity" slider, move that to about the halfway mark toward "unknown", click "ok" and that will cut the popular titles out. Futz around with the slider and quick reference ICM with a few titles. Err on the side of having some films that have +50 checks. You'll pull those out later.
3. Export this list to a .csv and save it somewhere.
4. In a new Google Sheet (or Excel) doc import the .csv. The sort is automatically set with your highest ranked movie first.
5. Go to Find/Replace. Replace "tt" with "http://www.imdb.com/title/tt". Click "replace all." This will turn the IMDB ID codes in that column to hyperlinks.
6. Go to ICM and start a new list. Name it something.
7. On the "Edit movies of top list" page, select the "By IMDb movie URL(s)" tab.
8. Select the IMDB url column contents from top to bottom (of the numbered rankings you'd like to include; I used 100-80, e.g.) on your Criticker spreadsheet, copy them all, then paste them into the "IMDb movie URLs" box on the ICM list page. Click Save.
9. Now, click on the title of your list at the top of the ICM page. This will open the public page that eventually all of the world will see.
10. View this page by resorting by the number of "checks". Find where the <50 cut off is and jot down everything above that. Go back to edit this list and delete those titles.
The main reason I use Criticker as my initial export place on most of my ICM lists is because they allow a 1-100 rating system (rather than IMDB's 1-10), so my nit-picky rankings are already set and I won't have to re-rank/drag around too much once I import to ICM. I've also made certain that every film I've ever seen is on Criticker by adding them to the database myself, if I have to.
Anyway, several ways to go about this, but I thought I'd share a route I'm used to. Hope this helps.
