I am using justwatch btw, because it has the option to mark movies as seen. I just want a full list on iCM so I can sort and filter there. I make such lists every month by using the overview on moviemeter, but some of those have been bugged for a while.

Specifically I am working on a list for Plex movies, which isn’t on justwatch or moviemeter.

I was frustrated with this as well but found quite a useful solution via letterboxd after it recently partnered with justwatch. I exported my imdb watchlist of over 6000 titles (when will I ever find the time?!) to my letterboxd watchlist. In the letterboxd app/website you can select which streaming services are available to you. You can then filter your watchlist to only show films which are available on the streaming services you use. Out of the 6000 on my watchlist it has narrowed these down to 650 available to me for free on amazon prime/Netflix/bbciplayer etc... and I can filter these further by genre, decade or sort by rating/runtime.

I know this isn't exactly what you are after, and I'm not sure if this is something that would be useful to you? I refer to it almost every time I select a film to watch and it updates close to real time with new additions/removals. I can't imagine how I got by without it now but I don't need to browse streaming platforms ever again as I can just refer to my list on letterboxd that displays all in one place.
oh nice, thanks for the tip on this. I've been using justwatch, but it didn't have a way to import watchlist from IMDB that I could find, so I only had a manually-made short watchlist on there. This way is much more useful :cheers:

I've you're into TV as well, trakt.tv is also integrated with JustWatch, so you can track what you've seen (both movies and TV). I've pulled in most of the ICM lists so I can quickly filter out what I've watched and check what's available on streaming service X.

For anyone who liked Kamera wo tomeru na!


The director made a new one called which is currently on youtube:
kamera wo tomeruna remote daisakusen! Which I will arbitrarily and loosely translate to "One Cut of the Dead Remote Edition"



I am not sure if there's an English sub version yet.

Really random, but I felt I had to share this:

This is a real guy, with the credits to match: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm8459909/

What I'm wondering is whether we will eventually get a whole company of present-day actors who appear in movies only because they look exactly like famous, long-dead actors.

So it turns out you can make your own very easily if you have an editing program. I didn't master green screen but I think I did ok. Will upload mine soon.

Are any Derek Cianfrance fans interested in the premiere of his miniseries I Know This Much Is True tonight? The book is one I've always owned but never got around to reading, but from what I know of Wally Lamb, him and Cianfrance are a perfect match.

I like Blue Valentine and really love The Place Beyond the Pines, but this new mini-series doesn’t grab me at all.

It doesn't look like more of the same?

You should watch Waves though if you haven't already, it has some Place Beyond the Pines vibes.

I didn't realize it's a Cianfrance project. I'm definitely interested now. I remember that my mother loved the novel when I was young and urged me to read it, but I could never get into it.

I'll give it a go since I've liked his other projects. HBO has been going nuts with the adaptations the last half decade or so.

Waves is on my watchlist, I’ll get to that one soon enough. I like Trey Edward Shults’ first two films a lot.

I just checked my #6000 on ICM and it turned out to be Greaser's Palace.

Alas, not one likely to ever make my list of favorites.

I finally just watched the Mekas doc in full. Good fly-on-the-wall stuff. The film is not on IMDB, so I just submitted it, hopefully it goes through OK.

Wow, thanks for that. I've seen a good chunk of these but not all, and I'm guessing the'll mostly look better than the copies I watched. Rappaport is definitely a required taste, especially in his fiction work, but I hope some folks will at least sample some of his film-history oriented shorts which are provocative but eminently watchable I'd think to anybody with interest in their subjects.

HBO Max has a ton of Criterions and other fun stuff. The TV library could definitely be better, but hopefully more will be added with time.

Unless some movies flew under my radar I guess it's been really quite (obviously) during the corona pandemic when it comes to new releases.
Anyone has any news on upcoming exciting releases we should look out for ?

Or maybe I missed something in the last few months ?

Recent highlights for me are The Metamorphosis of Birds (2020) by Catarina Vasconcelos, Nasir (2020) by Arun Karthick and The Year of the Discovery (2020) by Luis López Carrasco.

Nasir (2020) will be shown on Youtube through We Are One in a couple of days, just a tip.

Hey folks -- I want to share with you a horror short that my friend made. Ever since I met him 15 years ago, he's been writing horror screenplays and having no success getting them produced. I've read several, and I think he has tremendous talent. In the past couple of years, he's finally started producing his own horror shorts. This is his most recent. It's only two minutes and was made entirely with stock footage because he couldn't film during the pandemic. Check it out. If you're prompted for a password, it is "downstairs".

the updated edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is set to be released in October 20.

Amazon's cover features Brad Pitt in 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' so I guess it's fair to say that one will be one of the new entries.

There's also another cover with Joker set to be released in October 10.

A lot of films decided to either go to Venice (Moretti) or wait for next year so the actual competition lineup would've been much stonger (In terms of big names, impossible to know of actual quality).
