Largely treading water in November, but still in pretty decent shape for the end of the year. Here's a breakdown of my progress, showing the number of checks needed at the beginning of the year, last month and today, with completed lists in bold, backslides in red and gains in green:

Target pace to meet goal: 6.17 checks/month

Checks left currently: 7
Checks left at this point in 2017/2016/2015: 8/0/0
Current pace: 6.09 checks/month
Top 300 goals completed this month: 1960s, 1970s, 2000s, A.V.

Lists that have (re)appeared this month: 1970s, 2000s, Drama, ekolay.net's Best Turkish Films, Family, Paste's The 100 Best Anime Movies of All Time, Sight and Sound 2012 - Combined List and They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?
Worst ranking this month: War (#307)
Best goal-related ranks: Academy Award Best Pictures and MovieSense 101 (#1), Adventure (#95)

Lots of activity this month, little of it having to do with me, most of it due to the IMDb's lists sloshing about. With only seven checks left things seem to be pretty much under control, unless IMDb continues its shenanigans right to the end of the year

OK, it wasn't a goal that I explicitly pursued, but I just joined the "10,000 Check Club" with 16 days to spare. Whee.

(And I don't check TV episodes unless they're official.)

1 - Finish the AFI lists (3 more films to watch)

2 - Reach gold on the They shoot zombies, don't they ? list (192 films to watch)

3 - reach #1 in the french lists : 2 movies to check

4 - get bronze on the <400 list : 105 movies to check.

5 - get a gold medal on They shoot pictures, don't they ? 8 more checks...
1 - Done !

2 - 237 films before I reach this goal... Only 1 film seen last month, this is too slow.

3 - I've seen the 2 additions on the Timeout list, and still have 1 film on the Times list (but it's a Rohmer, and I'm watching all of his earlier movies, slowly going there)

4 - 88 films before bronze. 3 checks since last month, this isn't bad, but all my efforts will be ruined in september... :woot:

5 - Done !

Well, except for the french lists, I've reached all of my "easy" goals, and the other two are really long-term goals, which I don't truly intend to reach, as they will be updated before I'm even close to achievement... I will try to elaborate a new, simple, goal for next year.
1 - Done !

2 - 212 more films to watch

3 - Still one more film

4 - 96 checks before bronze, thanks to the new list...

5 - Done !
2 - Still 212 movies to watch !!! Are you sleeping, or what ?? :woot:

3 - Still 1 movie to watchn but I intend to watch it before the end of this month.

4 - Still 96 films...

Nice to see I haven't worked on any of my goals in 4 weeks. It is time for me to roll up my sleeves and start working seriously !!

IMDb did its best to derail me in December with its fluctuations, but things seem under control now. I thought it would be a fairly easy year, starting with 74 checks needed, but this has been the biggest challenge for me so far, so next year I'll probably stick to striving for top 225 rather than top 200 (as mentioned in the 2019 thread) so I don't feel so overwhelmed!

I might add more to this post later...

1. Rewatch at least 26 movies.
2. Silver on 500<400 and keep it or get it back after the update. Currently 22 to go.
3. Platinum on iCM Forum's 1001 Favorite Movies. I'll probably do this after the update. 36 to go on the current edition.
4. Clean out my iCM-watchlist.
5. Ongoing stuff, which I do every year: keep platinum on TSPDT, watch every newly available title from Rosenbaum and Unesco, watch every WC-movie, watch every FotW-movie
1. Failed miserably: I rewatched 7 movies. The last one was in July. :facepalm:
2. Done. Got as far as gold, but lost it after the update. Still got silver though.
3. Failed, but almost made it: Got 2 left. Waiting for those to be available in a reasonable (not too expensive I mean) legal way.
4. Done. Well, I cleaned it out, but after that I started using it for recent movies I want to see some time. So there are still movies on it, but these are movies I just wait for to get on Netflix or similar.
5. Done. Platinum on TSPDT, 1114/1133 on Rosenbaum (which would mean #1 if I wasn't dark :shifty: ), 558/832 on Unesco, perfect attendance on WC and FotW.

I feel like I should be careful with specific goals this year. In mid-2016 I just lost interest in movies of any kind and it lasted for about a year and I failed to reach all my goals for 2016 and my even more modest goals for 2017.

My interest in movies has come back but it feels more fragile than before. So with that in mind here's what I'd like to do in 2018:

1. Finally finish off the AFI 100 Years 100 Cheers list. I'm 2 movies away from completing it, I have them, just need to actually watch them. This has been a goal since 2016. DONE

2. Finally watch the remaining available films from the BFI 360 Classics list. 3 are available but have no subs, so the "total" (for now) will be 362 and I'm 7 movies away from that. Has been a goal since 2016. DONE

3. Make headway in my Conquer the World challenge. I'm close to having conquered Africa (need a movie from South Sudan and Somalia to have one from each country), but I'd like to reach a grand total of 150 conquered. I'm currently at 118, so it doesn't seem like too much of a stretch. 32 to go for now. FAIL

4. Reach gold on the TSPDT list. I'm right now 30 movies away from gold, but it's been slow going over the past year or so (I think I saw 7) so I may not reach that goal after the update. DONE

5. Reach silver on the 100 Korean Films list. I'm currently 10 away from that goal. Should be doable. DONE

6. Complete 1001 BYD list again. I'm 9 away from that. Not really a priority, but I'll see if i can't get around to it. FAIL

I may update this post if I think of something.
With only one day remaining of the year, I don't think I'll manage to make much of a difference from where I'm at now. So I managed most of my goals, a notable exception being the Conquer the World Challenge. I really need to get back on that horse.
Personal film goals for 2019.

My lowest was last year with 249 and without making any goals this year I really want to beat it by watching less.
I beat it! 169 new feature checks plus 16 rewatches only! my lowest record since joining ICM!! :party:

1. Improve my ICM rank to 1500 (currently 1972)
2. Make progress (i.e., at least 1 official check) on all official lists (that I haven't already platinumed)
3. Get my rank for all lists under 5000 (53 lists to go)
4. Get 64 awards (currently at 52)
5. Get a bronze on at least one of those ~1000 film top lists
6. Get at least 5 watches in all 36 official challenges this year
1. Made it. Actually hit my Unreasonable Goal, which was getting my rank to 1000 (currently sitting at 905).
2. Close. 180/187. Worst performance was on the 2000s IMDB list, where I lost 4 checks this year.
3. Made it. Then I didn't. I made it, then with the IMDB 2000s list changes, it's now my lowest ranked list (#5934)
4. Made it. Sitting at 70 awards right now
5. Made it. Got a bronze on 1001 MYMSBYD.
6. Made it. Yay me!

1. Watch and vote in every WC match.
2. A bit ambitious given I don't even have bronze yet, but I'd like to get platinum on 500<400 by the time it rolls around again. So I can keep track as I go throughout the coming year, I am starting out with 230/500 seen and rank #49.
3. I currently have platinum on ICM Forum's 1001 Favorites, but I'd like to regain it once it is updated later this year. I suppose the same goes for TSPDT although I have gotten increasingly irritated with the quality of the additions each year.
1. Did this!
2. Did this one, too!
3. I am not back to platinum on the ICM 1001 Favorites just yet. I am about 8 checks away but on pace to get it back to platinum by the next update. I do have platinum on TSPDT.

Finish TSPDT. Currently 946/1000. The exception probably will the Empire, since it doesn't seem to be available for home viewing.

Keep up with being in the top 250 of every official list.

Participate in the World Cup for the first time and as much as possible.
I missed one round from the World Cup, but other than that, goals fulfilled. Empire dropped out, so that was a bonus.

On top of that I also completed the iCM Forum's Favourite 1001 this year.

Very basic goals for this year (and a lot of cleanup). I'm setting minor goals for some of the lists, but the only additional one I will track is number of films on official lists.
I saw this year at one point I had 25 unchecked films on 25 or more official lists. I'd like to get it down to 20 unchecked films (or less) on 20 or more official lists. I currently have 48 unchecked films on 20 or more official lists (with a few more likely to be added after the new lists get adopted), so this will be a good, challenging goal, because most of those films I've been putting off for one reason or another over the years.

Great progress this quarter. Overpassed my feature-length goal, and coincidentally undershot my short-length goal by almost the same number. 126 watched is probably a record for any quarter, which is a fitting way to cap off a record year for me. The Films on 20+ is an ever-growing list, and I thought I could have achieved the official checks goal but the everchanging imdb lists are probably playing with that number, and it also shifted my focus as I wanted to maintain/regain a number of awards I'd had for a while. I saw 435 films this year, which is way beyond the goal of a film a day that I decided upon at the end of January.

2015 goals finished: (1) Silver on icm Forum's 250 Highest Rated Shorts
2016 goals finished: (3) 15 Poland, 25 1985, 25 1991

So how did I do? Did I reach my goals for 2018?


My main goals for 2018:
  • Watch the Dekalog-series Completed this in March
  • Watch the complete Zatoichi serie Completed
  • Go to the cinema at least 4 times a month (2 times to the main "blockbuster" one and two times to the arthouse one): Although on average I did go to the cinema more than 4 times a month, I did fail to complete the exact goal of going twice to the Pathé and twice to arthouse cinema every month at least.
  • Rewatch 75 movies that are in my all-time favorite list (or move into it after rewatching) Rewatched 87
  • Reach gold on iCM Forum's 1001 Favourite Movies (at 879 now) (and maintain it if I reach it before the update) Completed at 901/1001
Extra credit:
  • Reach 175 of 250 in the Top 250 Directors challenge (at 151 now): Failed, at 167 only.
  • Reach and maintain platinum on iCM Forum's Top 250 Favourite Movies of the Current Decade So Far (at 229 now): Failed, at 234
  • Complete the Film From Each iCM List Challenge (at 135/181 now): Failed, at 165
  • Watch the 5 unseen movies on 20 or more official lists : Failed, saw none of those 5

    Overall I'm happy and content: I completed most of my main goals for 2018 :party: , but only no extra credits for me this year :sweat: .
