Ways to use ICM

#1

Post by joachimt » October 5th, 2014, 1:12 pm

Of course, on ICM there are:
...people who check movies they have seen.
...people who favorite movies they really liked.
...people who dislike movies they really didn't like.

But there are also:
...people who check movies they haven't actually seen.
...people who check movies of which they only saw the available footage, even if it's just a few seconds.
...people who check movies they saw without subtitles without understanding a single word.
...people who check movies which they saw dubbed.
...people who check movies they are planning to see in the near future.
...people who uncheck movies they actually saw, but are no longer on official lists.
...people who only check movies that are on one official list.
...people who dislike movies they can't find anywhere online.
...people who check movies the moment they start watching it.
...people who only check movies they own.
...people who watchlist all movies on X+ official lists, even if they don't want to see them.
...people who don’t check unofficial movies they watch.
...people who check movies they don't intend to see.
...people who don't check movies but use a list to keep track of what they've seen.
...people who check movies that they can't find.
...people who don't check movies that they're planning to rewatch.
...people who only check movies on one particular list.
...people who either favorite or dislike every movie that they watch.
...people who watchlist everything that they haven't seen.
...people who check TV series after watching 1 episode.
...people who uncheck movies to prevent them from going over 400 checks.
...people who favorite movies without checking them (to help the fav/check ratio).

I posted a list like this a while ago and got reminded of it after I just noticed a user with only official checks, something 3rd did in the past, but this was someone else. So this thread is to make a list of ways to use ICM. Don’t take it seriously, it’s just silly fun.

If you see any other ‘weird’ behavior, post here… I’ll update the OP.

I have a kind of weird way where I check a film, and then start watching it. The standard here seems to be watching it, then checking it. Dunno why I do it this way actually. I guess it just became a habit.

Also subless stuff isn't that strange to me, although I've only done it once. The film had like 10 lines of straightforward dialogue, and it's in fucking Nahuatl, which is a language that is obviously well known among millions and millions of people.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Well that's hardly weird

What about "watchlisting" movies you can't find? Anybody else does that?

Don't see what's weird about it. At least the site has more time to process my check.

I did it once (Aus einem deutschen Leben - read the book first, though) and I'll most likely do it again.

Some people check films they own.

Regarding watchlist stuff; I only watchlist films in 4+ official lists because it makes it easier to export those films into an IMDb list for my own amusement. It gets annoying sometimes because I have to use IMDb to watchlist stuff I want to see, but sometimes I'd like those on iCM as well.

It took a while to learn to use the Owned function, but now I mark every film I have on my HD/shelf as owned. Initially I removed all my 'owned' films from my watchlist, then I stopped doing that but removed all the films I had seen (recently) from owned even if I still had them. Now I finally realised that the best way of keeping check of films I have but still differentiating between those I have and haven't seen (as you can't easily filter only 'checked' or 'unchecked' in your owned tab) is to watchlist all the films I own but haven't seen, so I can make use of the 'watchlist' tab on lists (ICM enhanced feature) and don't have to check the 'owned' tab separately.

I don't know how to summarize this in one sentence. :lol:

And it actually sounds like a normal way to use 'own' and 'watchlist', the way you're doing it now.

I do the stuff you describe offline. All DVDs that I haven't seen are on a different shelf from the rest. For movies on my harddiscs, I use a 'watch'-tab in the Excel-document where I keep track of every movie I've got.

I
- only check movies that are on at least one official list,
- "like"/favorite only movies with a weird/special appeal to me (and which I liked, of course),
- used to watchlist every movie I hadn't seen yet on IMDb lists, most of which I never intended to see otherwise.


Arthur's habit of first checking, then watching a film still seems remarkably weird to me. :D

Your third behavior isn't weird at all, right? You watchlisted movies you planned to watch.

I never understood the point of only checking official movies, but now it seems it's not as rare as I thought. :huh:

Maybe it's our way of keeping iCM 1.0 alive, a time where unofficial checks didn't exist after all. :D

My third behavior doesn't sound weird so far, but it's not like I really planned on watching those .. I just watchlisted them and then nothing happened. If I saw one of them, it happened because of other lists. At least I got rid of that vice when IMDb lists finally collapsed one day :rolleyes:

Mofo? I can't find him on ICM.

It reminds me of a user who was deleted over a year ago, who actually said on his profile page that he hadn't seen a lot of checks, because he checked movies he didn't intend to see ever.

So basically all users on the bottom of the user-rankings, who created an account but didn't bother checking anything and then left the site.

And let's not forget, people aren't the only ones on iCM. There are also:
...cheetahs who check movies they haven't actually seen.
...honest cheetahs who are pissed off about the stereotype that cheetahs cheat.
...mysterious "test" profiles used for unknown purposes.

- People who favorite something like half of what they have seen (Dimitris, with 2826 favs: each times I check who like a film, it's "hello, I've seen it too and liked it allllloooot").
- People who check a lot of blockbusters films when they don't like it at all; who check a lot of experimental films when they don't like it at all, etc.
- People who decide to not share their activity or their... favs. ("Naaaha! you won't see my favs! pflflflfllfl!)
- People who use comments and write "I would like to buy this film but I have no ball..."
- People who dislike all kind of comments by a specific member
- People who use imdb import ratings every month while they have no ball.
- People who stop checking movies while they still are active
- People who don't have an avatar (that's fuckin' weird, mostly when they are on the top 100)
- People who accept all kind of 'friends' ("hi! do you want to be my friend? -- sure. ... ... ... I should reach the friendtier in about six weeks. With a little luck, he will never notice that he had added me as his 'friend'. This is Ripley, best friend of the Nostromo, signing off.")
- People who create filmographies that already exist.
- People who never look at my favs and recs.
- People who read my comments and try to understand what was the point, actually.
- People who share thousand signatures on their profile page.

Regarding the habit of checking films just before seeing them (a couple of you think it's normal, one and a half of you think it's weird). It's clearly no big deal whatsoever (it's a far cry for checking films you plan to see eventually), but I do think it's weird, personally. To my mind, iCM is about checking films you have seen, not checking films when you have cemented the intention to see them. Haven't you ever been interrupted during a film viewing? Or your TV recording cuts off, or the DVD is damaged and freezes halfway through? Or haven't you gotten tired or bored, or your mood shifts, or the film is more difficult for whatever reason than you anticipated, and so you put off finishing it or watch it over several nights?

And what about the satisfaction of finishing a great or interesting or long-awaited or especially long film? It's gone! That's the oddest part for me. Checking a film beforehand robs you of the primal satisfaction of the act of checking meaning "Done!" :shrug:

To each his own, of course, just not for me that habit. :pinch: :P

Last week I checked a movie during the last few minutes of it. When I thought the movie ended, it appeared the file was broken and it actually missed the last half an hour of the movie. So I had to redownload the file and watch the last part. So I was a cheetah for two hours. tehe

People who suddenly delete all their checks and decide to start all over again. Hmm, wondering who that was :ph43r:

Guilty of this sometimes. But it's great when I stumble upon a blockbuster or experimental film I actually do like. :woot:

@ Local Geroi's points: The way I see it I get my satisfaction twice; once upon the act of checking and once the film's over. :happy: Also, sometimes I set my next day's watchlist in stone by checking the films at once early. Yet when the film is a 800-pound gorilla, e.g. Heimat or Ebolusyon, I wait and check it right before I watch the last installment/DVD. tehe

Yeah, this. Checking the last movie of the Ningen no jôken trilogy after I saw it gave me goosebumps
I plan to rewatch this trilogy this week, so I guess I should uncheck it now, so I can get those goosebumps again when I check them again. ^_^

A certain user only checks films that are in exactly one official list.

What's the logic behind that?

Because you already keep track elsewhere? (I only rate music at RYM 'cause I already use three different sites for films). Anyway, you can ask Angel himself. :whistling:

Not angel. This is films in any one official list not a just a specific list like doubling the canon.

Rating the films on RYM gives me that primal satisfaction.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.
