Hello! Pleasant to see a still-living forum these days. I've gotten a bit bored of the more dynamic (and/or entirely useless) places for online discussion, so I hope I'll find some interesting discussions here and - again hopefully - positively contribute to them. :D

Not really, I didn't visit any forums that I might call major. It was mid-to-small ones, for games, music, a local forum (i.e. for Croatia), that I visit - and they haven't closed down, though some have become extremely slow.

Hi, this is more a re-introduction as haven't really been active on the forums for... wow pretty much 4 years. Back on the old zetaboards.

Not sure how much I'll be posting - it's been a whole since I've been on any forums - but I remembered having good times on here so rather than just lurk I thought it would be good to re-introduce myself.

So, hi I'm Peter I'm from London, UK and like everyone here I love films. Also big fan of video games and music and I run the best-of aggregation site Play That Game. I did a major update of that recently, which is how I now have time to be posting online again.

Despite starting the journey back in 2003, I am still making my way through the 1001 film list. But I am finally in the position to finish it in 2-3 years, which is exciting.

Hope to see you around :)

I was looking into that during my last update - at the moment the points are still in a position where a game could enter the top 2000 based on performing extremely well on two 'all time' lists. Once that mathematically cannot happen, we'll expand :)

Hey everyone,

I have been a member on ICM for nearly ten years and was a very active user in the first years, signed up for the forum, etc.

Some unrelated events kept me away for a while and I only checked occasionally. Last April, I was moving and had to get rid of a lot of stuff I had accumulated. In a bizarre way I couldn't let go of a copy of Amos Vogels' book I had never read and was immediately reminded of my intense film years.

In my high school years, I met this beautiful person who took me under her wings and someday we got to talk about movies. Testing my sensitivities, she someday suggested I should watch Gaspar Noe's 'Irreversible' which I did. What followed was an intense relationship sprinkled with films that could be considered 'shocking'. We had found some kind of subversive moment for ourselves in a small town. ICM had always been a large part of it and despite all the small frustrations one can have with the site, it has been part of my adolescence and it has something to it, that no other site could reproduce for me.

Either way, I was holding that copy of Vogel and knew I couldn't let it go. I noticed some irregularities and dimly remembered the forum and posted on the discuss tab (which I thought to be the new version of the forum). I noticed there was a 500 < 400 list collection going and I made sure to give some points to 'O Fantasma' which holds a special place in my heart.

Anyways, I plan to stay around this time and thought it might be reasonable to reintroduce myself. I changed my ICM name to 'Joschi' where you can find me now. Either name is fine, though I go by Josh in real life.

Happy to meet you all!
Josh

Welcome, Josh. Nice to have you back and active so many years after joining. Glad you found us again.

The discuss-forum is more like a helpdesk of iCM. It is the "official" forum of iCM. You can simply post bugs, offer suggestions, get updates of lists under the attention of the mods, ask for help, etc...
This forum right here is the same as you signed up at many years ago. It's "unofficial" meaning the owner of iCM had no saying at this forum at all. He has an account, but rarely comes here. Most moderators of iCM (like me) are active members here, though, so if you address something here, it will be picked up.

Hi there, Quartoxuma!

I was immediately drawn to how you express yourself while reading through your recent posts on Vogel. Lovely to read of your being drawn back to the board after those years away.
That's all, folks!

I used to be a film addict back in the old IMDB days under the name "miura88", I cut back on films thanks to real life and wanting to learn other things, to become a more knowledgeable, more-rounded individual (still working on that). After the IMDB forums went down and they changed the log-in process I somehow managed to delete my old account and lost all my old ratings, it was quite a blow, akin to losing old memories. To counter this setback I created a new ICM account and start checking off all the films I could remember, I've mostly spent the last few years rewatching old favourites to see if they hold up, I've hardly seen anything from the 2010s (I blame "Wolf of Wall Street"),I didn't even know the site had a forum until quite recently, thus here I am ready to meet new friends and some old acquaintances; I recognise a couple names from the old IMDB days.

Some of my favourite films are Providence (1977), Spirit of the Beehive, Madame de.., Les Vampires, Tokyo Story, Mirror, Berlin Alexanderplatz, Celine and Julie go Boating, L'Eclisse and Chinatown.

Really wish I'd found this forum sooner, anyway I'm glad to be here and look forward to stealing all your film knowledge for world domination discussing cinema with everyone here.

Also, welcome to the forum!
I was dissatisfied with the films of the early 2010s, they didn't click with me for some reason, one of the few brightspots left was one of my favourite directors Martin Scorsese. Loved Raging Bull, King of Comedy, Taxi Driver and Goodfellas, even his subpar films have some interesting things going for them. "Wolf of Wall Street" felt like a one-dimensional rehash of his rise-and-fall movies aimed at younger people (a demographic I no longer belong to). All the partying and debauchery scenes went on far too long and got really boring really fast, characters were flat and uninteresting too, I didn't find it funny either, just a monotonous drag.

I was getting bored of new releases and thinking about focusing on older films more to my tastes, "Wolf of Wall Street" merely precipitated that decision. The 2010s were a tough time for me personally, movie watching slipped down my list of priorities.

Welcome RolandKirkSunglasses!

I don't think there'll be much overlap between our tastes (the 2010s have been my main focal point for the past decade - a good 40% of my overall votes), but always good to see new people .

You assume correctly. Not many musicians can play the recorder with their nose or play 3 saxophones at the same time, being blind makes this performance all the more insane.

Hey Roland,
that's a nice introduction, interesting to get so much background! Even if you're not that active in watching anymore, be sure that your collected knowledge and film experience doesn't get forgotten :thumbsup:

We run the poll for the official list of community favorites below 400 checks aka 500<400 in this forum, too bad you just missed it in September. The according thread to it is quite spectacular! :o

Right now, and running for two more weeks, we have an (unofficial, so not adopted) iteration going which is even more obscure: Favorite films below 50 checks - maybe you can reach in nominations there, too? (With what is left :) )

Also,

I can't even begin to imagine the mess if I lost my IMDb account, especially if I didn't have my viewings saved anywhere else. My condolences (not sure you love making lists as much as myself or some people here, but IMDb is probably my key resource there).

Mirror is on my shortlist too. Got to rewatch it on the big screen 5 years ago and it was incredible, and I love Providence (and Resnais up until the 80s in general), Chinatown, Celine and Julie, Madame De ..., etc. Great line-up.

Who would you say are your favourite directors?

Welcome !

I saw The Mirror first about 10 years ago when I was 16 and while I saw some beauty in it, the lack of storytelling was bothering me and I don't think I even finished the movie because of that. It must've been my first Tarkovsky.

Last summer, in the short span the cinemas were open, I saw the restored version and had the whole cinema to myself bar 2 other people. It was simply amazing and it flew by so fast. I really hope I ever get to rewatch Stalker on the big screen as that is still my favorite Tarkovsky I've seen until now.
I saved Latin, what did you ever do ?
