Re: Top 5 films you haven't seen according to ICM

In terms of official checks my results are a bit "shameful", I haven't seen the following:

Bicycle Thieves
Rashomon
City Lights
Pan's Labyrinth
Modern Times

I have never really had any interest in these films, although I got a lot warmer on Kurosawa after watching Sanjuro and High and Low, and so Rashomon is now on my watchlist. Watching films with high amounts of official lists has eroded my hit rate for finding movies I like, to quite an extent. So this won't get a lot better any time soon.

So, 7 months onwards from last time a lot has changed but the path only became a little bit shorter.

Official top lists
1. M - 34 (on watchlist)
2. The General - 33 (on watchlist)
3. Sunrise: A song of Two Humans - 33
4. 8 1/2 - 32
5. Annie Hall - 31 (might watch this tonight in my local arthouse cinema)

Favorited (Checked all movies that were on here 7 months ago)
1. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
2. The Princess Bride (probably soon)
3. Die Hard (probably soon)
4. How To Train Your Dragon
5. Twelve Monkeys

It's obvious that Action movies are my least favorite genre.

Personal Toplists
1. Chinatown
2. Annie Hall
3. M
4. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
5. Raging Bull

Checks
1. The Terminator
2. Terminator 2: Judgment Day
3. Die Hard
4. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
5. Braveheart

Dislikes (no changes)
1. Twilight
2. The Twilight Saga: New moon
3. Indiana Jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull
4. Transformers: Revenge of the fallen
5. Transformers
I saved Latin, what did you ever do ?

:circle: :circle: :circle:

Might actually be my favorite genre - you have so many GREAT movies on that list. :P Die Hard is my Christmas tradition.

The one I'd caution you against is 8 1/2. I'd recommend easing your way into Fellini before tackling that one. I watched it very early in my ICM career and was wholly unprepared for it.

I know about Fellini and I'm not going to start watching him soon. Will probably be on my list for at least another year.

The action list with 250 movies is my lowest rank on all lists on ICM actually :mellow:

Oddly enough, I watched 8 1/2 fairly early on in my "journey" and loved it. Easily my favorite Fellini..
