Movies You Just Checked (but saw a long time ago)

I've been starting the daunting task of going through old film logs. In the first batch I've looked at in the past week, I got about 40 new checks. Still have most of the old logs to go, but I'll have to break it up because it's too tedious otherwise.

As a member of 15 years of imdb I've always have had enough movies to import, but there are always instances of movies not being in the database. Usually obscure shorts or documentaries that are shown in festivals. Thankfully I still have those catalogues so I do go back and add some of them occasionally.

As far I know I'm only missing a handful of movies that I saw on TV in my youth. Is there a thread here on the forum that can help me with finding those titles based on a plot description?

I wasn't sure whether I had seen "Mona Lisa" (1982) or not. So I left it unchecked. But I showed my movie list for the current '80s poll to an old friend, and he wondered why I had left off "Mona Lisa." Because he remembered me raving about the film to him back in the day. Aha! *check*

Somehow I missed checking off The Princess Diaries (2001) despite seeing it 4 years ago after I'd already joined icm. :shrug:

One less discrepancy between my spreadsheet and icm... about a dozen left to figure out :D

Not a movie but a Norwegian TV-series, Blindpassasjer AKA The Stowaway (1978) that I saw back in the day.

Recommended viewing for any fan of classic sci-fi, this series deserves to be better known today.
Available youknowwhere.


The spaceship Marco Polo is returning from a mission at the newly discovered planet Rossum. While the five members of the crew are in deep sleep a mysterious shape is captured on one of the surveillance monitors. Awakened the crew soon discover that one of their members has been killed, and something is living among them in the shape of a crewmate. But who is it?

Just recently checked Dennis the Menace from the early nineties after looking at a list of worst films from that year on IMDB. I saw it in the theater.

National Lampoon's Vacation - I don't usually like to rate (and therefore check) things from my past unless I feel reasonably confident in my recollection of the film. I generally rewatch so I have a strong level of confidence in my rating. However, some films, like NLV which I've probably seen a half dozen times and remember the plotline with a fair level of clarity, I'm reasonably comfortable assigning a check.

It's the films we remember too fondly that should be rewatched before rating, IMHO.

It was irritating me that the number of my checks on icm wasn't the same from the number of my ratings on imdb nor the number of films in my spreadsheet. So after exporting and comparing, I've now checked off the following films which I saw but mysteriously never bothered to check off.

Run of the Mill (1999 Short)
Aeg maha [Time Out] (1985 Short)
Once Upon a Mattress (2005 TV)
Bridge (2010 Short)
The Morning After (2012 Short)
Silver Road (2006 Short)
Vattnet [Water] (2012 Short)
Not Gay (2013 Short)
Meltdown (2012 Short) first check
Aeon Flux (2005)

Also found a bunch of films I checked but didn't rate :shrug:

I think my numbers are still a bit off, but that's likely due to TV shows and films not yet on imdb.

Also just checked White Fang after this reminder. I remember it well we were the only ones in the cinema, when I watched it as a kid.


There's loads though, I come across unchecked ones all the time. I checked off about 6 or so looking at that action list, from the challenge, including such masterpieces as Robocop 3 and Lethal Weapon 3.

That's pretty cool that you were able to do a comparison. I've tried getting my numbers to match. On IMDB, if I watch a show, I won't necessarily rate every episode, but I will check every episode, so I remember what I've seen. Now the discrepancy is greater. From time to time I'll find a film that's on my Viewing Log that I haven't rated or checked, or a film that I've checked but not rated or rated but not checked. Import from IMDB is a good option, but I can't export my checks and compare yet.

If you want some help, I can do the analysis for you. I would just need the csv files from imdb and icm.

Oh, awesome! I don't have the .csv from ICM, bc I'm not a paying member. But I've been wanting to and just started a new job, so maybe I can get that for you within the next few days.

Just Friends (2005)
It was a trailer before a movie I saw today, so then I checked imdb, and no vote and no check. At least trailers have one cause...

Mimi wo sumaseba (1995)
I have a box set with most of the early Ghibli movies. All checked and voted for, except this one. Odd. But I saw it back in 2008.

Sorry, this made me laugh. Because you started a new job, now you can afford 1 euro each month for iCM? How horrible was your financial state before? :blink:

Here is the csv of your checks:

I had extra time, but not extra money. Now, I have a few extra dollars, but not that much time. Luckily, today is a holiday in the USA. I hope to catch up on some things.

Just checked The Cable Guy which isn't in any official lists, but showed up in the favorite comedies list. There are probably many more in the non-top 250 but I haven't looked at it yet.

I have a personal rule, in that I don't check movies that I don't remember well. Anything that I watched more than 15 years ago would qualify as "don't remember well". In recent years I have re-watched (and checked) a lot of movies from my youth, to make up for it.

Welcome!

Yeah, that's a pretty good rule to have. I found that I tended to remember things I watched in my teens a little too fondly. If I'd rated them on IMDb before rewatching, they'd probably gotten 2 stars more than they deserved.

Yeah I thought they failed badly. Some seem to like it.

Tummy Trouble (1988)

I don't remember if I saw this in theatres or not, but it's the short that played before Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

I rewatched both last week, and introduced my friends to the movie, so I finally checked it off (WFRR was already checked). I think it was the last short I was waiting to rewatch before checking.

Elizabethtown (2005). After watching Jerry Maguire, I was looking up which other films Cameron Crowe had directed. So I stumbled upon this one, which I saw on television back in 2009 or 2010, when iCM only allowed official checks in its database.
