I'm way far back, my median rank is 611.5 and many lists I have no easy access to movies. If anything I should work on movies with the most official checks, I still have 13 movies on more than 13 lists.

Despite improving most categories my median rank actually fell a spot to 612.5. So many seem to be working on this club that I now have over fifty lists in the 500-700 range alone.

Well I've gotten my median to 462.5, still never going to get there but :cheers: to those who can.

For the Anthology list, that's not actually a lot - sort the list by runtime and focus on the shorts. I'm ranked #258 there without even ever focusing on that list (just on shorts). Check the links in the ICM comments.

For the African movies, I haven't had any problem (though I'm US). Most of the ones I've watched were from ICM comments links, so check there. Some of the more popular ones will show up on streaming platforms if you search for them, so check there, too. justwatch.com does a decent job at telling you what's available to you in your country on platform [X].

I don't download much, so I'm not the best to ask - I've used Video DownloadHelper as a Firefox extension, but don't know about other sites.

Also, you know you can separately mark films as watched and owned on ICM, right?

179/181, Bollywood and Turkey missing but everything else is top 300 and my goal is top 200 club. There are a few people in the top 100 club, and that is quite impressive to me.
Surprisingly even though I've been terrible about watching movies for the last year and a half this is still mostly true, though I have many more lists over 200 now.
Changes from July 2017 which is the last time I kept track of anything.
Lists Ranked Top 10: 38 (-3)

I'm top 500 on exactly 100 lists. :) I've never noted the tally before, so I don't know if it's up or down.

(I feel like I always underachieve with criteria like this, considering my rank, because I think my official checks tend to be films that aren't on a lot of lists. Shorts, foreign-language, experimental stuff, whatever. And there are a lot of big Hollywood classics that I haven't bothered to see.)

I won't talk about the Russian lists but it's actually quite easy to find some Iranian movies by Panahi, Kiarostami or Farhadi you haven't seen yet.
I would definitely recommend Mashgh-e Shab, Khane-ye doust kodjast? and Badkonake sefid (and I think those 3 are available on Youtube with english subtitles).

I'd wait on some of the Kiarostami titles, as Criterion is coming out with the Koker set soonish (Where is the Friends Home, Life and Nothing More and Through the Olive Trees). There isn't a whole lot of Panahi or Farhadi on the list, either.

Davandeh and Bashu are probably among my favorites that you haven't seen yet. Davandeh does have a link on the profile.

I already maintain a list of films on 10 lists. It's fairly up to date (last updated Jan 31). ;)

I'd go ahead and watch Dah. Where is the Friends Home, I'd wait on, until the Criterion set comes out.

So no, not even close to be in this club :whistling:

Top 50: 13 (0)
Top 100: 20 (+4)
Top 250: 60 (+21)
Top 500: 109 (+23)
Top 1000: 152 (+13)

Getting closer...
Some improvements in little under a year. Not really working on this, and I doubt if I ever become a member. Too many sequels and box office movies that I don’t care about.

Top 1: 13 (+2)

So something of a milestone reached tonight as I added two more years to my 100 checks + list (1945 & 1961) - I have 100+ checks for each year beginning with 1942 and ending in 2017. Most checks is just over 390 (2004 - 2007) inclusive. Both 1940 & 1941 are also close to 100 checks with 97 and 91 checks respectively, but the number drops off quickly before that.

I may have to consider forming a Top 200 club now as my single worst showing in the rankings is 219 on the Czech/Slovak list. Only other list over 200 is Annecy. And unbelievably, I'm in the 150s now on Zombies (so no longer close to my worst showing).

Listen, Daddy. Teacher says, 'every time a car alarm bleeps, into heaven a demon sneaks.'

Nice! I have exactly one year with 100+ checks (2016) - and in a similar era, 1947 is my most recent year with fewer than 10 checks. Interestingly, the Czech Slovak list is in the top quarter of my rankings...
