'night, Mother (1986) - with Sissy Spacek and Anne Bancroft occupying the screen for the majority of the 96 minutes, one expects something - but be warned, this is about as much a downer of a movie as you can find, especially from Hollywood. Great performances that have stayed with me for three decades. It has left such an impression that I had no problem rating it today even though I saw it long ago. No official checks though.

The Witches (1990)

Roald Dahl gold. But the book ending is so much better :)

i just checked three from the 400<500 list

vremena goda, l'assassin habite... au 21 and the last of sheila

this was due to not noticing they were under different titles and for the last one, it was a very long time ago :teehee:

I can only second this recommendation. Ben Gazzara is excellent here as per usual.

I'm recurrently nagged by two big areas where I've undoubtedly missed checking many films:

1) old Warner Bros. cartoons
2) Our Gang/Little Rascals shorts

Saw loads of this stuff on TV as a kid, but I just don't feel confident about checking off all those films from memory. And anyway, it's an awful lot of work going through the IMDB links to remind myself which film was what.

I've checked 3/132 from the Our Gang list, and 132/1078 from the Warner Bros. cartoons list. Most of the cartoon checks are cartoons I've rewatched online in recent times.

I'm in a similar situation with the Looney Toons. iCM's says I've only seen 31 of them, but, I know for sure I've seen many, many more of them. Which ones, I have no idea, but, we used to watch them every time they were on as kids.

Our Gang.. Not so much. I can say with fairly certain confidence that I've checked what I've seen (Bored of Education)

About the hardest I ever laughed at the Howard Stern show was one segment where they were giggling about the most racist moments in "Little Rascals" films. Someone decided the ultimate was when the kids all caught measles...there was a shot slowly panning across a row of their faces, and the white kids had black dots and the black kid had white dots. Heheheheheh. I remembered seeing this, but such issues didn't dawn on me at such a young age. :)

I didn't think I'd ever post in this thread, since I won't check movies I can't remember enough to rate, and anything rated on imdb should be on ICM, but I just found The Celluloid Closet, which I had reviewed on criticker and rated on imdb was not checked on ICM and I'm not sure how that happened. Only thing I can think of is that I must have unchecked it by mistake at some point.

I just checked Souvenir Strip of the Edison Kinetoscope (AKA Sandow No. 1), but I watched it about 13 years ago. I had it in my archive as "Sandow", so later I accidentally rated and checked Sandow, which is an official check. So sorry guys. I guess I have cheated on those 27 seconds. :rolleyes:
I just watched the official Sandow.

i checked a whole bunch of bad 90s films i wanted to forget and hadn't noticed since they weren't official checks. sry :blush:

i first built my ratings by going through the official lists but these i found by using actor's filmography: nicholas cage, julia roberts, harrison ford, kevin bacon, denzel, etc. these people sure made a lot of crappy films :P

Advent Children. Actually a film I often put on just playing in the background. But seems I never checked it

(or votes and/or checks were lost when imdb updated the title to japanese)

Steptoe and Son 1972

Started watching this week and got to this scene when I realised I'd seen it before.

I have the opposite today. Last night I watched Ghostbusters (1984); I'd always assumed I'd seen it before when I was a kid, since I was vaguely familiar with the characters, but when I saw it last night nothing struck me as familiar. So either I have a very bad memory and nothing stuck with me, or I have a very bad memory and I never saw it before.

Baron von Munchausen

Typical a movie you have seen so many clips from that you in the end think you've seen it. Or it mixes it up with an actual viewing. Anyway, finally checked.

Also checked a bunch of shorts (They were probably not on imdb when I originally viewed them): Totem, De beste går først, Redd barna, Kjøleskapet.

----

some more:
Surf's Up, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Return of Jafar, The Lion King II (mainly seen between 1999 and 2004)

To Fly! (1976) - saw this over 40 years ago at the National Air and Space Museum. Amazing how many shots were imprinted on my brain - the church steeple, the Blue Angels, Lake Powell - it was really quite an experience seeing this on the largest screen I'd ever seen. So it was fun to remind myself what it felt like way back when. IMAX theatres were quite rare back then compared to today.

The only other earlier experience that was quite so moving was Circle-Vision at DisneyWorld (now called the Magic Kingdom) though I can't remember if I saw America the Beautiful (1957) or Magic Carpet 'Round the World (1974)

Oh yeah, I have a fond memory of To Fly also - saw it at Great America, an amusement park north of Chicago, also on an IMAX screen - the earliest one in the area and the only one for a couple of decades. Probably in 1977 or 1978. Sure wouldn't be the same seeing it at home now. There was another, similar short that I thought I saw around the same time but the only thing I can come up with is

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/speed-1984/

and I don't think that was it cuz I couldn't have seen that until college years. Something similar in the late 70s I thought but I'm damned if I can figure it out.

The only thing I saw at Disneyworld was Captain Eo but that wasn't until the late 90s and being over 30 and a serious film buff it didn't have anything like the effect it might have had on a 10-12 year old.
Here's to the fools who dream.

Got tired of the gap of ratings between my RYM and ICM account. Spent 2 hours going through my old ratings (1/10 to most of 3/10). It's down from around 300 checks away to 37. Gonna call it a day for that but that's really good progress.

To be fair, I've been re-watching a fair amount of stuff over the last few weeks, American action films that I KNOW I saw, some of them no more than 5-6 years ago, and find that I can barely remember anything about them. Even if they're really mediocre I shouldn't have so much trouble with that. It's probably mostly booze in my case.

Hehehe. I have that issue too (though it's separate from my earlier issue). :cheers:

My earlier issue is about how I joined ICM - I didn't have a list of movies or ratings anywhere, so I just started going through official lists and checking films I'd seen. I thought I'd gone through and checked everything official that I'd seen, but apparently not. I'm just super surprised I'm still finding official checks I've seen, but not checked.

Didn't expect to find something after so many years on iCM, but I just checked Parenthood, which I saw some time in the 90's. I never recognized it from the cover or the title, but it just popped up on Netflix, I started watching and remembered almost everything.

I went through all of Rob Reiner's filmography and caught up. But I didn't have to see this one as I had seen it before. So bad as it's impossible to forget

Seen it dozens of times as a kid. We had a VHS-tape with some disney stuff recorded from TV. We didn't have a lot else on VHS, so whenever we got the chance, we watched it. This was one of the shorts on it.
