It's crazy, isn't it? I came to notice the very same in my superlow 1000ish rankings for those lists. I've seen a few hundred horror films in my life, making me somehow knowledgeable among usual pleb "film as a hobby" peers, but just scarcely average on ICM. For these pale AFI lists, the damn Noirs and Oscar Best Picture (+Nominees) I have seen quite some and am way below average. <_<
The core of ICM's userbase is really in for classic Hollywood films or American cinema, no doubt about it. For foreign lists, my rankings effortlessly rise sky-high.

People here are crazy for Noirs. Can't get enough of 'em even 6 decades after the genre's official final conclusion. I hear they're even doing even a Noir challenge this month, trying to see as many of these as they can! All black and white, somber and roughly an hour and a half long. It's the same film-noir over and over again!
Supposedly, there's this completely mad guy, Spanish fellow it seems. He literally doesn't watch anything else, insanely laughing about his achievements on this subgenre type of movies. For him, after Noirvember, the calendar continues with Noircember, Janoirary, Filmnoirary .. he celebrates Easter after March Noire and when other people get a good tan, he locks himself up in front of the TV from Junoir through Noirgust!

A real lunatic, this hombre ElNeffo! :woot:

Man, I am really not giving Spanish movies their due consideration. maybe that should be a 2021 goal.

Also, a little surprised at the low ranking in the OFCS's list despite having a bronze. I guess it's because I haven't revisited/checked a lot of popular early Disney (& similar others).

April 2017:
All the lists that I fail to make the top 1000 in:

2000s - #3720 (39 of 50)
Action - #1123 (41 of 50)
All-Time WW BO - #11224 (349 of 688)
Amanda - #2229 (2 of 31)
Cinema Tropical - #3447 (6 of 125)
Documentary - #1125 (13 of 50)
ekolay.net Turkish - #3014 (1 of 53)
Film Critics Assn Romanian - #1679 (1 of 59)
Goya Award - #2686 (4 of 31)
Guldbagge Award - #1299 (8 of 55)
ICM - Most Checked - #14044 (210 of 250)
Nederlands FF - #1802 (4 of 36)
Shorts - #1040 (35 of 50)
Sport - #1828 (18 of 50)
Top 100 Bollywood - #1464 (3 of 83)
15 lists then, 14 now - progress! And only one above 10k, thanks to the expansion of the WW Box Office list. I'll do it by rank though now instead of alpha

iCheckmovies's Most Checked #11583 (217/250)
Box Office Mojo's All-Time WW #4967 (503/1000)
Cinema Tropical - #3874 (6/125)
Dutch Film Fest Top 50 - #3673 (3/50)
Goya Award - #2142 (5/34)
Amanda Award - #1951 (3/35)
Hürriyet's 100 Best Turkish - #1754 (6/102)
Gouden Kalf - #1494 (5/40)
Box Office Mojo's All-Time Adjusted #1375 (647/1000)
Guldbagge Award - #1321 (9/58)
IMDb Mini-series - #1252 (7/50)
Film Totaal 100 - #1216 (98/100)
Belgian Film Award - #1198 (5/40)
MovieSense 101 - #1153 (95/101)

Mostly different lists this time, interestingly - not like I tried to work on any of these specific lists. I wasn't even really aware of the MovieSense list until now actually - but looking at it, 3 of the 6 I have left are only on that list, and none looks all that interesting at first glance, and one of the other three is The Boondock Saints. Won't be prioritizing finishing that list. The two left on FilmTotaal are respectively, uninteresting looking and 6 hours long. So that list may well stick around for a while for me as well. I think I'm more likely to consciously work on the Cinema Tropical than any of the others in the near future though I'm not making any bets.

Ahh man, I made such strong progress in only one month to slack for the rest of the year. Just can't bring myself to watching all these AFINoircademysicals now. :pinch: Hate to be so close!
So this is where I leave for 2020:

#8812 @2/50: IMDb TV Mini-Series
#1414 @41/100: 100 Essential Noirs
#1375 @68/100: AFI 100 Cheers
#1350 @67/100: AFI 100 Laughs
#1246 @69/100: AFI 100 Passions
#1190 @35/100: BFI's 100 Musicals
#1156 @53/100: BFI Top 100
#1105 @115/250: Marshall Action
#1090 @78/93: Academy BP

Funny how almost all of them are Top 100s now - for some of you power users, these are a joke to finish off entirely. Just did the math via ICM Enhanced: All of these lists need 3-6 checks to bring me into the desired 1000-region ... and I guess it's in fact doable to "finish" the 7 remaining lists with a few cross-listed titles in the same time it would take to get also 6 more checks for Mini-Series. :facepalm:

Funny how you don't even make it into the Top 1000 with a completion of 98/100. :lol: Talk about a popular selection.

I'm at 98/100 too for the AFI 100 Thrills; makes me rank 500ish there.
I have 3 out of 58 checks for the Portugal list and it gives me almost the same rank. :D

Well it's a Dutch list, and a Dutch-run site...

But more importantly it's all readily-accessible and relatively well-known films. And it's the only such list - maybe the MovieSense one also, haven't checked on how available those films are - where I'm not ranked pretty high. Being American and growing up on Hollywood, the AFI lists which you're struggling with were just automatic gold or silvers for me for the most part. The IMDb lists, because they change so often and are so full of recent crap are another story, and I'm actually surprised that I'm below 1000 on all of them now apart from the mini-series one; never really tried with most of those lists either.

Wow, one really gets closely observed around here. :lol: That's what happens when you fall asleep during copy+paste. The old #1850 rank also wouldn't make sense in my ordering.
Thanks for the hint!

It amazes me how high you guys are on these lists. Despite being in the top 1500 overall, I've seen a little bit of everything rather than any particular list. I only have one platinum (Jerry Beck) and there are just eight lists where I'm in the top 1000. I have 12 lists with zero checks. Mini-Series, Locarno and 10 country-specific ones.

jeff_v on Oct 4 2014, 10:22:17 AM wrote:I think a more interesting question is, "What is your highest ranking on a list, excluding lists you have completed?"

For me it's #24, on two lists: Doubling the Canon and Spike Lee's Essential Film List.
#135 on the Canadian list, but sadly that's with only having seen 25 of the 103 films. I'm hoping it gets updated this year and will contain more accessible films, especially ones since the last update in 2004.
And this is still the Canadian list for me, at #6 with 109/134 (behind my two platinums for Jerry Beck and Annecy). 3rd still shows up ahead of me without a rank, though, so I guess I'm really #7. I don't think any other darksiders are above me on that list.
I now have only 4 lists above rank 10,000 (as of Jan 1st):
17,174 - IMDb Mini-series
12,223 - TSZDT 1000 Horror
11,569 - Grindhouse Classics
10,143 - iCM Most Checked

I made progress on all four, but then lost some of that progress on the mini-series list when Anne of Green Gables dropped back out. I think all 4 are within reach of getting below 10,000 this year.

For my highest ranked non-platinum, it's still Canada, but others are getting close. I have 9 lists ranked under 100:
7 - TIFF Canadian
39 - BFI Flare LGBTQ+
40 - Pinoy Rebyu Filipino
65 - FESPACO Award
72 - Guide to African Cinema
76 - ACF Romanian
80 - IMDb Family
85 - ICM Forum 500<400
87 - DIFF Arab

I hope to break into the Top 100 on a few more lists, but getting a platinum will be harder, and only the IMDb Family list looks feasible (I have the American Hachi-ko left, but I want to watch the original Japanese version first). More likely is the IMDb Shorts list (I have Punisher: Dirty Laundry left, but I want to see the original film first) or perhaps IMDb Adventure (only Dersu Uzala and Sholay left, if nothing else pops into the list, though I see Soul has recently crossed the threshold and Barry Lyndon or Fitzcarraldo might stage a comeback).

BFI's 100 Animated Feature Films #12223
IMDb's Animation Top 50 #9882
OFCS's Top 100 Animated Features of All Time #7651

And 0 checks (not ranked) on the Pinoy list. But I intend to change that this year.

0 checks on two lists: Amanda Award for Best Norwegian Film and Wei Jun Zi's 100 Classic Martial Arts Films

Otherwise, my worst five are:

IMDb's Musical Top 50 - 8 / 50 - #76244
Box Office Mojo's All Time Worldwide Box Office - 167 / 1000 - #69510
Box Office Mojo's All Time Adjusted Box Office - 182 / 1000 - #65584

I have seen more of Doubling the Canon (220/1100 - 20%) than the Worldwide Box Office (167/1000 - 16.7%) :lol: Who else can say that?

And indeed there's one person who would claim that with 100% DtC and 20-30% completion for the BO lists .. but I'll not further comment on this one here. :facepalm:
