The Amazing Spider-Man 4? seriously? ICM didn't even have the year information for that movie. And The Chronicles of Narnia: The Magician's Nephew/ That movie isn't going to be made in the foreseeable future at all.. :lol:

I guess you can say that my few trolling comments in icm (the ones where I reference onestarnetflix reviews or youtube comments that I find) can be a weird way of using icm as well.

I noticed that mathiasa replied to me for my Môjû comment. I laughed so hard when I first read that comment on youtube.

I admit to having seen a couple of porn films in my wild youth, but I can't remember the titles. I also didn't check Crosby/Hope Road movies, Andy Hardy movies, 50s Bible epics, WW II-era musicals, etc because they were so interchangeable I can't remember which ones I saw.

I keep track of my watchlists on my word processor. Mainly use my watchlist for stuff not on lists that I couldn't find anywhere at the time (such as recent releases that weren't listed as "save" on Netflix, or those Turkmen andTajik flicks my son is always recommending). Just started experimenting with using it for lists I'm actively working on.

It annoys me that people make lists of movies they've seen, movies they intend to see, faves, etc., instead of using checks, watchlists, and faves features (are all of these available to free accounts?). I regard personal listmaking as a communal contribution.

Odd. I would have thought that checking a film on RYM would slightly sap you of a little strength each time. :whistling:

Me, I have a primal ritual after each completed film viewing. I check the movie on iCM, pick a streetfight with someone bigger than me, down a bottle of whisky, and then shout "Done!" at any child I come across. It's rough when I plough through a slew of shorts.

I started doing this after iMDB changed their folders to lists. In the meantime, I had little access to the way I wanted to list my films, so I created my spreadsheet. I use this in case a site fails, then I have all the info I need for personal reference. Sometimes I'll add a film to my watchlist on other sites, but then it becomes a hassle if I have to update several sites to do one thing (add a film I want to watch, check/rate a film, etc.)

Yes, those three options are available to free accounts. I don't see why they should annoy you, though. I've had an excel spreadsheet for films I have seen and want to see for many years now, before I joined icm; I wasn't going to delete it just because I found the website. As well, I can run a lot more statistics in excel that interest me; I also created a separate list of films on my hard drive once I had too many to keep track of, to help me decide what to watch next. I guess someone having a separate favourites list doesn't make much sense, though.

I keep various watchlists on the site (most of which are private) because I use 'watchlist' for something else and I have separate watchlists for whatever I might be wanting, eg 'horror', 'silents', 'recs from forum people', so I know WHY I've watchlisted it. I also keep a separate favourites list because I'm able to import and also see how many people have checked. People can also leave comments or watchlist/fave it themselves if they're interested. The 'movies seen in 2014' kind of lists used to bother me, but people do it on Letterboxd as well and I think it's just so they have an easy way of looking back at the year in one place - especially if they don't want to keep a spreadsheet or list elsewhere. I wish there was a better way of sorting through personal lists though (I never bother with tags coz they're a pain), so that those kinds of lists could be separated from ones that are 'universally' useful.

Everything? You only have 281 films on your watchlist, so does that mean you found every film except for those 281?

On Anime-Planet there are people who literally watchlist everything that they haven't seen/read, which means over 6,000 anime and over 14,000 manga. There are also people with over 6000 anime on their "won't watch" list, which makes me wonder what these people are doing on Anime-Planet if they have so little interest in anime.

I guess it would be difficult to do that on iCM with over 500,000 films, but there are probably people who watchlist every official check that they haven't seen.

Well, to be more precise, I watchlist everything I could not find, and that I tried finding, and is on an official list. Mainly this watchlist consists of shorts, and pre 1920 movies.

I'm glad for all these responses. Yes, separating those kinds of lists from the communally useful ones is the crux. That's why I take the trouble to dislike lists that I don't think add anything to the commons (which I don't do for communal lists whose subject matter, er, doesn't speak to me) - so that they can be segregated if a means to do so is ever worked out. (But isn't there an option to keep lists private or something like that?)

I never dislike lists and would never dislike a PERSONAL list. there's no rule that lists have to be universal, I mean lists are even automatically classified as personal lists as opposed to 'website' or whatever. Disliking someone's personal list seems really harsh and isn't really going to change anything so it's ultimately pointless. It's icm's issue of not having an easy and useful way to separate such lists, so 'punishing' the users for making a list on a list website just seems mean

I also like some of those personal lists for people who I follow. Like if someone makes a watchlist for a challenge or a favourites list or whatever; I can see how many I've seen or someone else etc. Making those as lists is extremely useful sometimes.

I use my watchlist in, what I believe is, an unusual way.
I only watchlist unwatched films that I own on Blu-ray, DVD or HD DVD, and that are on official lists.
This summer I further developed my habit to where I watchlist official checks that I have ordered and therefor are on the way in the mail, but I don’t ‘owned’ the films until I have received them and have them in my hands.

Now that I haven’t gotten my DVD Profiler up and running on my Mac jet (after over a year as a Mac-user …) iCM is may main recourse for keeping track on the films I own, and more specifically the unwatched films in my shelf.

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?
My solution for this is even more strange (but it rarely happens). I just uncheck the film, and then check it again when I'm giving it another attempt. Of course, this doesn't eliminate it from the activity feed. I've been doing this since I've started using iCM seriously and there's no way I'll be able to break this habit now.

If I do have it interrupted for something or I just take a pause break, I just leave it checked. Which is why when some people follow my activity feed they see cases like I check a 90 minute film, and then 2.5 hours later I might favourite or dislike it.

Obviously you'd post this one. Although to be fair, most people finish before the film finishes, and then they have no purpose of continuing the film.

Well, I have one personal list which is currently rated as 15:6 ... so disliking personal lists is definitely a thing :)

As for "checking", I usually import through IMDb, then check back to see what films ended up in official lists. It's fun to predict what movies you think will be a list and then be totally wrong about it :D Only last week I found 8 Ferris Bueller is in 8 official lists while The Lookout is in 0. It's quite confronting.

Oh, and if you have "...people who check movies they saw without subtitles without understanding a single word." as weird usage, surely "... people who check movies which they saw dubbed" should definitely be in there too.

I have a 9500 long watchlist (and it's constantly growing) on IMDb and basically I add to it everything that I see on 'official' lists or user's favourites lists who I know have reliable tastes. I know that I will never be able to finish it, but at least I have a list for myself which I can filter when we have a year poll and so on, to overview what's out there for me. I like the fact that there exists a list (no matter how long it is) with all the films that I "want" to see. You couldn't possibly store that data mentally (like obscure films by japanese directors with no posters...).

Which again leads us to the conclusion that the power of shorts is underestimated.

- people who make personal toplists (approximately 150 of them) containing just one item.

And the strangest watchlist I've seen is the one that contains 17,007 titles. Not to name any names. ;)

These two peeve me...

...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.

I don't understand why people are bothered about people checking all footage of a film available. I mean, if that's all that's left then that IS the film. That's as much as you're ever going to see or anyone else. It's not cheating and it's not lying, because that's the entire film.

I said it before and I'll say it again. No one should check The Magnificent Ambersons until the final reel is available.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Please don't start about this again. Maria has caused enough riot in the past. ;)

I keep my watchlist on imdb, so on icm I use the watchlist to mark the movies that I have downloaded.
It's very helpful when you work on a list. You can immediately see which ones you need to search for. This is why I have my watchlist private.
That's a new function for the watchlist that hasn't been mentioned if I'm not mistaken :D

About "liking" and "disliking" : I often "like" films, especially shorts, in a knee-jerk fashion so I know where to find them if I want to revisit them.

I'm very sparing with "dislikes" - because so often my reaction to a movie has more to do with my current inner state than any "objective" criteria. I can turn a movie off because I can't stand it and revisit it later and find that it speaks to my condition. I can dislike a movie intensely while realizing that I would probably have loved it had I seen it 50 years ago.
