Der Lauf der Dinge. Seen it in school once or twice. Just popped up in the runner ups to 500<400.

And 'Emanuelle in America'. Seen it secretly as a kid on tv.

I never rated it on RYM either. Yay that brings me even closer to 5000 films.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

What's the Matter with Helen? (1971)

I saw this a couple of years ago, but somehow missed checking it. A campy good time. Debbie Reynolds and Shelley Winters are great fun and Agnes Moorehead has a great supporting role as an Aimee Semple McPherson preacher type.

Ma vie en rose [My Life in Pink]
Pretty sure this was one of the films I watched during my French exchange in the summer of 2000. We watched a new film each week, and I checked the others but somehow missed this one. Discovered it when going through some of the queer lists for the challenge after watching Tomboy, which has a similar theme.

Just noticed I never checked the second of the Paradise Lost documentary series, which I saw many years ago, probably when it was first released in 2000. Still haven't seen the third one though.

Once Upon a Forest
A Hetedik Testver aka The Seventh Brother
Just checked two animated films I saw as a kid but forgot the names of and finally got around to googling what I remember of them. It's weird discovering that things from your childhood still exist.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (1979 TV)
My grandmother used to tape movies from TV for us when were kids and we would watch them whenever we went over for a visit or they babysat us. It feels like I saw this countless times but probably only once or twice. It really stuck in my memory, though, so I'm surprised I never checked it before now. I stumbled upon it a few days ago and some kind soul just added it to KG last month, so I decided a rewatch was in order. My memory of the story was pretty much intact, but gosh it felt so horribly rushed. Still, warm memories are a nice thing when you're cooped up in bed with a cold and it's storming outside. At least my headache's gone for now. :)

Thanks to TCM 31 Days of Oscar 2015, the list that WalterNeff posted, I checked the version of Little Women with June Allyson (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0041594/). I saw it a long time ago. It's really rare these days for me to stumble upon a film I saw pre-IMDB. This is pretty crazy.

I checked two Méliès shorts today that I have seen years ago. They were still in my own movie-archive, but it seems I never rated them on IMDB.

Reviewing the same list not only did I realize I never checked the same film, Little Women (1949) but also Rachel, Rachel.

I have seen this one too (probably twice, as it was a film on my dad's side of the family they played to keep the kids occupied). I, too, had not checked it.

I can't believe I hadn't checked it before, considering I rank it right near the top of the Big Bird oeuvre. :)

I checked Tron last week even though I was 10 when it came out and watched it numerous times. I think it might be one of those cases where I checked the film, but it did the weird-grayed-out check thing and I did not realize it was unchecked.

Just realized when I was making my list of favorite Italian movies that i never rated, checked, or added Human Capital to my viewing log. Sometimes I leave a film off one or the other, but rarely all three. Was able to figure out when I saw it through an old email (Nov. '14).

Not too proud of it, but in a screenshot quiz someone posted this film, and I realized I one saw it on television.

Not currently, but I know that the "actors" clothes are different, and one version has a longer intro and the other has a longer outro (in the cuts we've seen).

Adrian Lyne's version of Lolita, thanks to Tim Dirks. It's been ages since I've seen it, but I think it deserves official status.

I was surprised to find I hadn't checked The Boogey Man, a short film adaptation of a Stephen King short story from his Night Shift collection. I remember being creeped out by the story when I was 9 or 10, then super-excited finding this at the video store a few years later, then incredibly disappointed at how terrible it was. Surprisingly, I checked the film this one was paired with (The Woman in the Room) but not this one.

I thought I had checked off virtually every movie that I *know* I've seen, but I recently came across unchecked boxes for America the Beautiful (the Circle-Vision movie that used to show in Tomorrowland at Disneyland) and the Thelonious Monk doc Straight, No Chaser.

Edit: And then by coincidence, a Facebook discussion today about "Love and Mercy" (which I haven't seen) jogged my memory of two past Beach Boys biopics that I *have* seen (https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/the ... an+family/, https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/sum ... each+boys/).

I just hit a milestone in a bit of an unexpected way: I was at 14 999 checks and toying with the idea of picking something special for the big 15k, when I saw Tasselfoot's list of Top Grossing FilmsTop Grossing films and discovered I hadn't checked Any Which Way You Can, despite having seen it 30 odd years ago. Ah well, a bit anticlimactic but I'll take my checks where I can get them. :party:

I just noticed I never checked the Mel Brooks version of To Be Or Not to Be, which is odd because it's the only post-Gene Wilder Mel Brooks movie I even mildly enjoyed (not including the Spanish Inquisition segment of History of the World Part I).

I checked 'Hunting Venus' and 'Seeing Red'. Two made for TV movies I saw on ITV when they were originally on 15ish years ago.

Since things like Abigail's Party is on official lists I figure it made sense to start checking these things on here.

I've long had a problem with not being sure exactly which films I've seen. As opposed to the films I merely sampled, the films I didn't see vs. similar seen films with the same director/actor, etc.

But...I recently had an epiphany. I remembered that I still had a textbook somewhere from a introductory film class I took during my sophomore year of college. And that for awhile afterwards, I was yellow-highlighting film titles as I watched them. Aha! So...I dug out the book, scanned through it and managed to find 61 highlighted titles that I hadn't checked off on ICM. About half official checks, and half not.

I went through this list of titles more closely, and eliminated a couple where I think I confused two films (for instance, "20 Million Miles to Earth" and "Five Million Miles to Earth") and a few others where the title just rang no bells at all (I know "A Fine Madness" was one of these). I probably could have checked the latter cases in good faith, but I resisted.

Anyway, the end result was me checking off 55 ancient films at once: [official checks] A Man and a Woman, Adoption (Orokbefogadas), Airport, Black Sunday (1977), Blackmail, Death Takes a Holiday, Detective (1985), Dracula (1979), Hail Mary, Heavy Traffic, Le Rayon Vert, Lust for Life, Melvin & Howard, Monkey Business (1931), On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Rodan, Identification Marks: None (Rysopis), Sisters, Sounder, Straw Dogs, The Bellboy, The Black Stallion, The Lodger, The Fog (1980), The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Music Man, The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981), The Stranger (1946), Sabotage, Torn Curtain and Under Capricorn, plus [unofficial checks...a lot of late-'70s mainstream fluff here] A Countess from Hong Kong, A Man and a Woman: 20 Years Later, Abraham Lincoln, American Hot Wax, From the Life of the Marionettes, California Dreaming, Rich & Strange, Exorcist II: The Heretic, Heroes, Hooper, House Calls, Isadora, Movie Movie, Murder on the Orient Express, Murder! (1930), Secret Agent, Semi-Tough, Starting Over, The Big Fix, The Great Santini, The Great Gatsby (1974), The Seduction of Joe Tynan, The Wiz and Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?

Most of the official checks were films I agonized over checking many times in the past, though I'm bewildered that the title "Adoption" (aka Orokbefogadas) was COMPLETELY alien to me, even after all my contemporary "research." But why else would I have highlighted something so obscure? It probably was a film I saw within the class itself. I'm pretty sure "Identification Marks: None" was another film from the class curriculum, and coming across this film on an ICM list was the main trigger for me remembering the old textbook. I had no idea I had seen "Le Rayon Vert" either, and it was great to clear up my confusion about some early Alfred Hitchcock films that bleed together in my memory.

Some of these films (A Man and a Woman, Isadora, From the Life of the Marionettes, The Stranger, Blackmail, The Lodger, Sisters, Straw Dogs) would have been on my watchlist long ago if not for my nagging suspicion that I had already seen them. And because they're so foggy in my memory, I aim to rewatch those films anyway, along with some others such as Detective, Hail Mary, Heavy Traffic, Le Rayon Vert, Melvin & Howard, Monkey Business, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Identification Marks: None, A Countess from Hong Kong, The Great Gatsby and the other Hitchcock stuff.

Checking these films rose me three slots to my highest rank ever (#119), but I've already slipped back to #120 since then.
