What got you to Platinum?

#1

Post by Cippenham » June 6th, 2011, 10:10 am

What film finally got you that Platinum on any list? Was it hard to find, left to last for a reason, and it was it better than worse than expcected? The Long Day Closes would be a good choice to finish a list.

I got to Platinum with Stuart Little for icheckmovies-Most checked. it was terrible but it did star Hugh Laurie!

Top 250 - the first time I completed it is the one I count, so Anatomy of a Murder (put off due to length mainly)

Action & Adventure - The Hidden Fortress (I hate Kurosawa)
Romance - Brighter, Summer Day (the length and the fact that it didn't interest me put me off)
Comedy - Filantropica (Romanian)
Drama - Morometii (Romanian)
Mystery - Incendies (sounded boring)
Thriller - Elite Squad 2 (didn't want to have to watch the original film too, and also it sounded lame)

Leonard Maltin - Dodsworth (the name and plot sounded stupid, didn't like it that much but it was better than I expected)
Academy Award Best Pic - How Green Was My Valley (I was going to start on TSPDT after that list and it was the last one left also on TSPDT, so I was going to use it as a segue)
MovieSense 101 - Cherry Blossoms (sounded like something I'd hate, but I actually really liked it)
AFI 100 Movies - Nashville (sounded dull, was even worse than I expected)

Reddit 250: Ladri di biciclette (Italian 40's and 50's are often very boring)
Sequels: The Color of Money (Tom Cruise, and even the original was tedious)

Never really working for any Platinums except IMDb Top 250.

Academy Award Best Picture: Chicago. Was not really interested in this musical. And the fact that it beat Pianist and Two towers also did not help. Finally watched this for 2000s challenge. Turned out to be better than I expected.

AFI 100 Movies: Yankee Doodle Dandy. Was watching all AFI movies for the AFI knock out tournament. But before I could watch this one it was eliminated. Then completely forgot about it. Recently watched it and became my instant favorite.

Thriller and Mystery . Really did not know which ones got me Platinums. Suddenly one day the award update said I got plats for these lists. Not really concentrating on IMDb genre lists.


Lost Platinum: IMDb Top 250
1st : Got my first plat with My Neighbor Totoro. Then A Separation came and took my plat away.
2nd : A Separtion. But then Throne of Blood & La Haine came
3rd : La Haine. But Papillon came.
4th : Papillon. But Moonrise Kingdom came.

So standing on 249 now.

I got platinum the other day for A.V. Club - The best films of the '00s with Ni na bian ji dian which I thought sounded interesting, but I didn't like it at all.

I already mentioned it, but the less than stellar Avengers got me platinum on IMDB top 250. We'll see how long this lasts....until the next blockbuster comes out and all the fanboys & girls rate it higher than such classics as Casablanca and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

My only platinum is from the Best Cartoons Ever list, because it was the easiest one to complete. Don't even remember what my last check on it was, possibly Book Revue (which was pretty fun, as those Looney Tunes cartoons tend to be).

Hitting 9th, 10th and 11th platinum today, so to sum up:

Today
10/11. Adventure - Ivan Vasilevich menyaet professiyu (1973) I don't like farces from any country.
10/11. Sci-fi - Ivan Vasilevich menyaet professiyu (1973)
09. Animation - Evangerion shin gekijôban: Ha (2009) Still haven't seen a Evangerion movie I liked. And this is my 4th or 5th? The reboot is easier to follow, but still just about teens driving robots.

Previous
08. AFI's 100 years...100 thrills - The Manchurian Candidate (1962) (November 17)
07. Drama - First gained with Le trou (1960), had to earn it again with Babam ve Oglum (2005) (September/October 17) Le trou is Very Good. Babam (..) is fair
06. 1980s - First gained with Nostalghia (1983), had to earn it again with Kagemusha (1980) (July/August 17) Didn't enjoy any of these
05. Fantasy - Dom za vesanje (1988) (May 2017) It's odd, so could be polarizing. The first half is more fun than the second half though.
04. FilmTotaal top 100 - La meglio gioventù (2003) (May 2017) First half is good, but overstays its welcome
03. Best Cartoons Ever - The Unicorn in the Garden (1953) (April 2017) Above average
02. iCheckMovies - Most Checked - (500) Days of Summer (2009) (March 17) Fair
01. Amanda Award - Best Film - Tusen ganger god natt (2013) (June 16) Very good

I might have had the 1990 platinum when I first joined, but that is many many many updates ago

What fortuitous timing for this thread to pop up. I'm ~10% of the way through Best of Youth (La meglio gioventù), which will get me platinum on the FilmTotaal list. The six-hour run time has put me off for a while, but I'm home alone today, so it seemed like a good idea.

Previously...
AFI 100 Years... 100 Movies: All the President's Men (1976) - too many people ahead of me in line at the library for this one, so I found a stream to complete the list.
Best Cartoons: L'homme qui plantait des arbres (1987) - this was longer than the 7ish minutes of most of the cartoons, so I put it off.

AFI Thrills- Marathon Man
Really just a coincidence, in a very good list this was an okay addition that I probably would never have sought out if not to get the Platinum.
Academy Award Best Picture- Wings
Pure accident that the first was last, when I was piling through the BP winners (hello TCM) this was a safety one in my mind. I remembered it being uploaded to the Paramount Vault youtube channel only to later find they gutted the channel and made it a clip show catalogue.
Most Checked- Trainspotting
The last three for me were all squeamish stuff (Saw and Requiem for a Dream being the other two). Was pleasantly surprised by all three.
AFI Movies- American Graffiti
It was an almost too perfect ending for this list, even if the movie was somewhat at arms length for me emotionally.
Leonard Maltin- Greed
By sheer happenstance I was barely a notch away from platinum, in fact all other remaining movies on this list were combined shorter than EVS' Greed. I didn't want to watch the butchered short version, couldn't find the 2:20 version, so I just swung for the reconstruction cut. I thought it was still incredibly good even if it was a bit like a Sega CD crossed with a 3DO at times.

Only have one plat and it's for The 100 Greatest Sci-Fi Movies

Final check was It Came from Outer Space, it was kinda hard to find. I didn't conciously complete that list tho.

There's a couple of lists where I am currently one movie short, but it's usually a 5 hour mini series or a Bollywood movie that I refuse to even watch for free.

That only lasted a week, and then I had to redo 10/11. Adventure and Sci-fi with Thor: Ragnarok (2017).

Will it last for Thor though?

I don't have any Platinum awards. Surely I can't be the only iCM user in this position, though I guess this might be odd for someone who ranks in the top 400 users by official checks. I additionally only have two Gold awards (but I do have a whole bunch of Bronzes and Silvers).

The list that I am closest to achieving Platinum on is AFI Thrills, with the following four films in my blind:

The Wizard of Oz - saw bits and pieces as a kid, but nothing that makes curious in revisiting it as an adult

The Magnificent Seven - I haven't seen Seven Samurai, which is probably a prerequisite before watching this

Braveheart - looks long and boring and Mel Gibson's other big film (Hacksaw Ridge) was really not my cup of tea

The Adventures of Robin Hood - never been a fan of swashbucklers and not a huge fan of 1930s cinema

There are probably more in the top 400, but not a lot. When I joined iCM in 2012, I imported my IMDb-ratings and I instantly had a bunch of platinums. I entered the overall rankings somewhere near 300. Some of the smaller lists are very easy to have platinum on if you've already seen a lot of the canon before joining iCM. I have to add, that back then I had already seen most of 1001MYMSBYD and a lot of TSPDT.

I'm not surprised at you (or many others I'm sure) not having any platinum, but you are possibly the first person I've ever run across who has never seen The Wizard of Oz, or at least the first to mention that fact.

I've only got one Platinum (IMDB Animation) which I believe I got after watching Your Name during an animation challenge. Other stuff (like Coco) have jumped into the list since then, but I have young kids so I've been able to keep up.

you're clearly a closet list whore :P
I suppose - though I'd reserve the term "whore" for the folks who stay on top of the IMDb and Box Office lists by regularly subjecting themselves to any Hollywood crap that happens to make a lot of money and/or get high ratings from juvenile males - whereas I only watch the cream of that crap :lol:

But I've been thinking about this a bit, and I think that I do like to finish some lists in part because I've had a great deal of trouble in finishing any tasks of effort or duration in my life; I have precious few accomplishments - in any meaning of that word you care to think of - in 52 years. So finishing off a fairly big and challenging list that includes a few things I'm not particularly interesting in is *something*.

And there are some lists that are actually quite good, through and through, with very little garbage. I've grown to really like the BFI lists for example and am now just a few away from finishing the western one. Perhaps I'll work on the musical one later in the year or next year as I'm only at about 2/3 on that one. But those lists in general are more oriented to interesting and genre-expanding choices than most such tallies, they're less likely to have every SF blockbuster of the last 30 years or every John Wayne film, and more likely to have stuff like Born in Flames or Lonesome Cowboy. On the world cinema front the UNESCO list appeals to me for similar reasons though even getting bronze on that would be a challenge and I haven't actually made any deliberate effort in that direction.

I'm only 34, but this sounds very familiar - I find it hard to complete things, but now these lists are something that can be completed, a nice one-dimensional task: watch a bunch of films.

Ditto here too (about to be 36), and I like completing lists for the sense of completion and because they make me grow as a person along the way. Even if I don't like some of the films, I feel like I learn something from each of them.

Spiritually significant - La Promesse
Cahiers du cinema 100 - America America
Leonard Maltin 100 - Mean Streets

(also 3 IMDb lists and a couple others I got and lost)

I've stopped caring about lists, though. Need better reasons to watch stuff I don't wanna see.

3 more platinums this month:

14. Action - Tsubaki Sanjûrô (1962) Hard to find before streaming services
13. 50 Greatest Sequels - The Raid 2: Berandal (2014) Not really that interested in this one
12. Musical - First with Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) then with Monkey Business (1931) Didn't like any of these and the Marx Bros is basically too much for me.

10/11. Adventure - Ivan Vasilevich menyaet professiyu (1973) I don't like farces from any country.
10/11. Sci-fi - Ivan Vasilevich menyaet professiyu (1973)
09. Animation - Evangerion shin gekijôban: Ha (2009) Still haven't seen a Evangerion movie I liked. And this is my 4th or 5th? The reboot is easier to follow, but still just about teens driving robots.
08. AFI's 100 years...100 thrills - The Manchurian Candidate (1962) (November 17)
07. Drama - First gained with Le trou (1960), had to earn it again with Babam ve Oglum (2005) (September/October 17) Le trou is Very Good. Babam (..) is fair
06. 1980s - First gained with Nostalghia (1983), had to earn it again with Kagemusha (1980) (July/August 17) Didn't enjoy any of these
05. Fantasy - Dom za vesanje (1988) (May 2017) It's odd, so could be polarizing. The first half is more fun than the second half though.
04. FilmTotaal top 100 - La meglio gioventù (2003) (May 2017) First half is good, but overstays its welcome
03. Best Cartoons Ever - The Unicorn in the Garden (1953) (April 2017) Above average
02. iCheckMovies - Most Checked - (500) Days of Summer (2009) (March 17) Fair
01. Amanda Award - Best Film - Tusen ganger god natt (2013) (June 16) Very good

I might have had the 1990 platinum when I first joined, but that is many many many updates ago

I have 4 platinum awards. I used to have 6 before.
I lost the BAFTA Best Film award and I have to watch "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" to have it back.
For FESPACO, I was proud because I was the first person on ICM to have platinum by checking "Aujourd'hui". I really enjoyed watching the movies from that list. That was several years ago, now I've lost my platinum and I have to watch the two last movies. I will.
Both of these lists are a short-term goal. Just 3 movies !

Otherwise, my platinum are :
- Academy Awards Best Film with "The Shape of Water"
- 100 Must-See Films Of The 20th Century with Blazing Saddles
- AFI's 100 years...100 thrills with The China Syndrome
- AFI's 100 years...100 movies with Sophie's Choice

I'll maybe work on :
- FilmTotaal top 100 (2 to go)
- Taschen 100 All-time favorite movies (6 to go)
- MovieSense 101 (7 to go)
- Cahiers du cinéma 100 (10 to go)

I'll see, I prefer to watch TSPDT's films. ^^

I added two platinums the past few days to my collection, bringing me to 57 platinums.

BAFTA Awards - The Sound Barrier (1952)
AFI's 100 years...100 laughs - Road to Morocco (1942)

I'll probably work on the following next:

AFI's 100 years...100 passions (6 to go)
AFI's 100 years...100 cheers (9 to go)
Sport (5 to go)

I've 2 IMDb lists where I'm 1 check from Platinum:
Scifi (Force Awakens)
1910s (Shifting Sands - vote stuffing, really this and maybe a few others should be forcibly removed from the list)

Platinums last check, also IMDb rating:
2010s - Call Me by Your Name 7/10
Animation - Coco 7/10
Annecy - Damon the Mower 5/10
Jerry Beck - The Unicorn in the Garden 8/10
Most Checked - The Pianist 9/10
Russian Livejournal - Viy 5/10
Russian Guild - Zerkalo 5/10
Shorts - Piper 8/10
Animation OFCS - Batman: Mask of the Phantasm 6/10
500<400 - probably Wrony in a few weeks

Some of these are rewatches/rechecked, I notice. The russian movies and Batman.

I don't see how you can determine this is vote stuffing.

And this is precisely why IMDb ratings and lists are totally useless. I was an IMDb forum regular from 2005 on, and I spent my share of time looking at ratings and lists, and it's especially obvious that vote-stuffing/campaigning/trolling - whatever you want to call it - bends ratings and lists severely out of shape when you look at the early years. About 10 years ago I noticed this phenomenon in many of the more popular films of the 1910s - at one point all the Feuillade serials and Gance's Napolean had 30-50% "1" votes for example. There was an ongoing thread about this on the Silent forum at the time, and I and several others contacted IMDb about it, to no avail. Of course over time ratings typically even out somewhat but with those early films that still only have a few hundred votes in some cases, it might take decades.

And of course it's still going on, perhaps just as bad or worse than ever now that the forums aren't around. Take a look at the early votes for this film which has only screened once so far, this past week in Venice:
