For many many years had Disney limited release period on their movies. So if you didn't see in the cinemas, or did buy it that exact time, you didnt get to see it. Of course it's easier now when everything can be PPVed.

But Buena Vista's home video policies are to blame, it did restrict access too much.

Wouldn't know. Never read the books or watched any of the films.

I have a strong suspicion I have made the correct choice.

I've updated my previous post on top films I haven't seen. I've bolded films that are STILL on my lists and included the previous post in the spoiler.

EDIT: am striking out things I'm watching, will update post more fully some time in the future

Here are the movies by most official lists:

Vérités et mensonges 1973— a.k.a. F For Fake, in 10 top lists
Bei qing cheng shi 1989— a.k.a. A City of Sadness, in 9 top lists
Boudu sauvé des eaux 1932— a.k.a. Boudu Saved from Drowning, in 9 top lists
Céline et Julie vont en bateau - Phantom Ladies... 1974— a.k.a. Celine and Julie Go Boating, in 9 top lists
La chienne 1931— a.k.a. The Bitch, in 9 top lists
Khane-ye doust kodjast? 1987— a.k.a. Where Is the Friend's Home?, in 9 top lists

Muriel ou Le temps d'un retour 1963, in 9 top lists
Tini zabutykh predkiv 1964— a.k.a. Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, in 9 top lists
Wavelength 1967, in 9 top lists

It seems kind of odd to me that 9 top lists is my magic number and two movies I haven't yet seen have gone from 9 to 8 top lists. I can only explain this because of adoption of new lists and maybe removal from a list (and the unofficialization of 500 Top Horror?)

In all toplists:

Jacob's Ladder 1990, in 3 top lists
Le locataire 1976— a.k.a. The Tenant, in 5 top lists
Possession 1981, in 4 top lists
21 Jump Street 2012, in 1 top list
Cube 1997, in 3 top lists

Nothing strange here - saw three so have three new titles.

In terms of most checks:

Zoolander 2001, in 4 top lists (currently on hold, should watch in May)
Easy A 2010, in 0 top lists
Forgetting Sarah Marshall 2008, in 0 top lists
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian 2009— a.k.a. Night at the Museum 2, in 1 top list
50 First Dates 2004, in 0 top lists (ugh, sure I've seen this but haven't rated/checked it, so...)

In terms of most favorites:

Easy A 2010, in 0 top lists
Game of Thrones 2011, in 0 top lists (currently watching, but won't check until series finishes)
Stranger Than Fiction 2006, in 0 top lists
Zoolander 2001, in 3 top lists
Crazy, Stupid, Love. 2011, in 0 top lists

No change here - but 0 top lists doesn't get my attention much.

And new this time - In terms of most dislikes:

The Last Airbender 2010, in 1 top list
You Don't Mess with the Zohan 2008, in 0 top lists
Sucker Punch 2011, in 0 top lists
The Happening 2008, in 0 top lists
Epic Movie 2007, in 0 top lists

Will get to The Last Airbender sometime since I'm working through All-Time Worldwide Box office by year. Can't say I've even heard of the other four. Might be best to keep it that way?

And last, in honor of that month-long film under production with the seven hour trailer we discussed this past week, here are

The Five Longest Films I've Not Yet Seen:

Modern Times Forever 2011, in 0 top lists
Matrjoschka 2006, in 0 top lists
The Cure for Insomnia 1987, in 0 top lists
Kara melek 1996, in 0 top lists
The Longest Most Meaningless Movie in the World 1970, in 0 top lists

The shortest claims to be the longest but still clocks in at 2880 min (premiere version) according to IMDb. Kara melek is a Turkish TV series. Don't imagine any of these will be getting checks from me.
Well, it's about time I update, especially since, for the first time, I have exactly 5 films based on number of official toplists that I haven't yet seen! All are on 8 lists for the time being and I watched my last movie on 9 lists tonight.

Drum roll please... :P (returning titles in bold)

Wow.. I thought my list of unseen films was bad. Then I see there are too many people who haven't seen On the Waterfront, Bicycle Thieves and M.

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:37-40)

Most Favourited isn't much different; only *Reservoir Dogs and *Léon are new.
Most # of Personal Toplists only adds Goodfellas and *The Godfather Part II.

* I have on my computer
After 15 months I would have thought I'd done better, but it seems not by much. Last major film was Silence of the Lambs about a month ago. Despite the fact that I've put most of these off for way too long, I did rather enjoy all five that I saw since the last update.

10. *Shichinin no samurai 1954— a.k.a. The Seven Samurai, in 30 top lists

I'm looking forward to M, Psycho, and Shichinin no samurai this year. Might get around to a few of the other inevitabilities.

Not really looking forward to any of these films, to be honest. Next up is mostly likely Saving Private Ryan or Donnie Darko.

Most favourited adds Léon, which I plan to watch soon.
Most # of Personal Top Lists adds Goodfellas, The Godfather: Part II, and Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo.
It's been about 6 months, but I only made some progress on these in October (4 films watched).

(City Lights dropped from 30 to 28 lists)

I intend to watch The Godfather, Psycho, M, Pulp Fiction, Shichinin no samurai, and Gone with the Wind before the end of the year. I've put these off for far too long. :)

Won't be focusing on any of these unless they're in the first list as well. Maybe I'll get around to Donnie Darko.

Most favourited and # of Personal Top Lists both add Goodfellas, The Godfather: Part II, and No Country for Old Men. I'll watch Part II if I get around to Part I.

If you watch Act of Killing, then you should probably watch Look of Silence afterwards. Just a suggestion.
