Quick question. I realised as I came close to my first platinum that the composition of lists changes a fair bit such that you tend to lose platinum quite easily. Are there any "dead" I.e. unchanging lists that people found it enjoyable to complete?

I like all the BFI lists, and AFAIK those don't change. I just finished the science fiction one a few days ago and while there are certainly some films on it that I dislike or don't find great, and there are some masterpieces missing (notably Stalker), I think that it, and all the BFI lists that I've looked at closely, offer much more interesting cross-sections of genres than other similar-sized (100) lists do. I'm 5 away from finishing the western list and I'm sure I'll do that this year, and I may work on the musicals list soon.

And of course the various awards lists - apart from the Oscar nominees list - only add one film every year, and never drop any, so you can easily maintain your standing on those once you've completed them.

A.V. Club - The best films of the '00s
AFI's 100 years...100 movies
Leonard Maltin's 100 Must-See Films Of The 20th Century
Taschen 100 All-time favorite movies
Annecy Festival's 100 Films for a Century of Animation

There are many others, too, but these have been my favourite "dead" lists to complete. Similar non-updating lists include e.g. "Cahiers du cinéma 100" and "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema" which I'm still completing myself and which I've enjoyed a lot thus far. :circle:

Oh dear, is it already that time of year again? Okay, lemme see...
  1. Platinum on the Empire 100 Best Films of World Cinema. 7 to go.
  2. Gold on the 100 Korean Films list. Currently 21 to go.
  3. Gold on the BFI 100 list. 9 to go.
  4. Gold on the BFI Sci-fi list. 8 to go.
  5. Bronze on Bodil Award Winners. 4 to go.
  6. Watch a shitload of gialli.
  7. Actually make real progress on my Conquer the World challenge. I've been shamefully negligent of this one this past year.
Not very ambitious, but I've realized that I'm not too happy with ambitious goals. They start feeling like chores that must be done rather than something I want to actually achieve. I have other goals that are less specific, iike watch more von Sternberg movies and more Scorsese movies.
Okeh, update time:

1. No progress, still 7 to go.
2. Currently 15 to go, made some good progress in December.
3. No progress, still 9 to go.
4. No progress, still 8 to go,
5. No progress, still 4 to go.
6. No progress, still a shitload to go.
7. Making progress! I've watched 5 already this year, hoping to keep up the pace.
Personal film goals for 2019.

4. Finally start watching Twin Peaks (1990 & 2017) waiting for the thriller/suspense challenge
5. Finish the complete Monty Python's Flying Circus waiting for the UK challenge

Roger Ebert: The Great Movies list is also a "dead" list. :( :( :(
