And? Review?
Honestly, both the 1st and this weren't as bad as I was expecting. Certainly not good. But on par with some Russian comedies I've seen from the same era. 3/10.

Tim Dirk...wow! I see a lot of "controversial" movies, but I still have 28 to go. I'll never get Platinum, because I won't watch the Human Centipede films. Actually, I don't have much need to see about half of those 28. "Song of the South," "Romance" and "A Real Young Girl" probably interest me most.

There are some bad films on that list, for sure. I had seen about half of the films on the list when it became official, then slowly worked through it over the past 4 years. An ex-girlfriend liked messed up movies (this should have been a red flag), so we watched a bunch together.

Some more plats of the past 2 months:

IMDb 1920s: Girl Shy & Show People
Euro Film Awards: Riff-Raff & The Ghost Writer
101 Gangster: The Brotherhood & The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond
Spike Lee Essential: Lust for Life & Seven Beauties
Arts & Faith: The Work & Calvary
OFCS Animated: Mad Monster Party? & Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
BFI 100 British: I'm All Right Jack & Brassed Off

Running out of lists that only need 20-ish films to plat.

My 5th platinum: Reddit Top 250, last two checks were The Lobster and The Witch. I’ve had this plat before, but I lost it with the last update. Glad to finally have it back, even though it wasn’t a huge priority for me.

Nirvana 2008 got me the platinum on the new Russian list.
It was also right up my alley (dystopian/subversive/transhumanist) but as expected not really good.

currently working towards a vegan/free world + thru such film lists (besides TV): ANARCHISTS, 2010s bests, RW Fassbinder, Yasujiro Ozu, Eric Rohmer, Visual Effects nominees, kid-related stuff, great animes (mini-serie or feature), very 80s movies, 17+ sci-fi lists on watchlist, ENVIRO, remarkable Silent Films and Pre-Code (exploring 1925 atm) and every shorts and docu list I'm aware of and

:lol:
Well, at least it made for some uncomfortable, yet cleared checks, hm?


Haven't been working on any list for years, gained 2 IMDb platinums en passant: Shorts Top 50 via I Don't Want to Go Back Alone (2010) (it was kinda nice) and 2010s Top 50 via 1917 (2019) (which was.. nice, too?).

The less static lists, e.g. by critics and some country polls, are more spectacular to finish, I guess.
