Interesting! It's surprising that the regular Ghibli productions seem to be left outside the list.

It's a list of series, Ghibli rarely makes them (did they ever?) :)

Future Boy Conan (directed by Miyazaki) is on the list, so it's kind of like a Ghibl series (except that it was made by a different studio).

Heidi: Girl of the Alps, directed by Takahata, is on the list as well.

I've also heard people describe Dennou Coil, Kemono no Souja Erin, and Kamichu! as Ghibli-esque (Dennou Coil is the only one that's on the list).

I think the only TV series Ghibli has ever actually produced is Ronja The Robber's Daughter (which is actually quite charming) directed by Goro Miyazaki, Hayao's son.

Also for any horror folks out there, I made this list based on the titular book:
Fragments of Fear: An Illustrated History of British Horror Films

Yea, the book came out in like 1995. Not the most up-to-date. But it does have quite a few British horror films on it that don't seem to be on any other lists.

Any update on the list of all official shorts coming soon? I know it at least doesn't include shorts exclusive to the Pixar Recommends list.

I made this list years ago, but just spent the last few days bringing it up to date. The AV Club is one of my main sources for reviews of new releases and to get a basic impression which films might be worth my time. Overall, I've found that in their ranking scheme a 'B+' is the best cut-off for me (Roughly equivalent to the 4/5 star rating for most other sites).

So, in this list is every release that got a 'B+' or higher since they first started reviewing in 2005. It just crossed the 1000 films line and is an interesting parallel view to the TSPDT 21st list since about half the films are on 0 official lists.

B+ and Up


Edit: I also might add: For new releases it often takes some time to be recognized and added to new lists. I try my best to ignore the Box Office lists, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy mainstream movies. The AV Club has a good tradition of comparing films within their genre and this way you also get a good understanding which bigger or Genre (Horror) releases might be worth your time.

Great work, Josh! I was actually going to look up some 2020(-19) films this week and was specifically thinking of Indiewire and The AV Club. You just made life easier for me :turned:

Now do A(+) only Pity we can't sort that list by their rating.

431/1121 for me, btw. I'm probably one of the more contemporary watchers here - and still many titles left to see for me, at least 100 I want to give a watch (someday..) and of those, 13 alone for my 2020-top list which I'm going to finish this January.
Nice!

Seen: 459/1121 (40.95%)
Highest unchecked: Geuddae geusaramdeul (#1)
Number of favorites: 50/459 (10.89%)
Highest favorite: Brick (#16)
Number of dislikes: 65/459 (14.16%)
Highest dislike: L'enfant (#13)
Unofficial films: 559/1121 (49.87%)

Not really familiar with The AV Club, but my favorites on that list seem to be the very obvious choices, so my guess is their focus is rather mainstream arthouse?

Yeah I guess you could call it that. Rarely experimental, but only few films that pass as "Hollywood". Films to enjoy for people with coffee to go cups.

This seems to be one of Time Out's infamous updated-list-without-a-new-poll lists.

Nice!
I'm at 530/1191 myself. A lot of the unwatched ones for me are those middle of the road Sony Picture Classic/Fox Searchlight type mid '00s movies that seem like they'd be somewhat interesting but rarely amazing (and yea to your point Torgo, I think if it were bumped up to at least an A-, it'd filter out a bunch of those kind of movies).
