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

: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..

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

* I have on my computer, will hopefully watch soon, and definitely plan to see them within a year
** I have on my computer, but I'm not really looking forward to watching them, mainly due to my aversion to watching violence and gore

We'll see how far I've progressed in 6 & 12 months time.
Not much progress in 6 months, only 4 films crossed off. Anyway, here are the updated lists.

Top 10 unseen films by # of official toplists

1. *The Godfather 1972, in 35 top lists
2. Apocalypse Now 1979, in 33 top lists
3. M 1931, in 33 top lists
4. *Pulp Fiction 1994, in 32 top lists

Top 10 unseen films by # of checks

1. *Fight Club 1999, in 14 top lists
2. *Pulp Fiction 1994, in 32 top lists
3. Inglourious Basterds 2009, in 12 top lists
4. *Se7en 1995, in 22 top lists

9. *Terminator 2: Judgment Day 1991, in 19 top lists
10. *Donnie Darko 2991, in 19 top lists

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.

Top 10 unseen films by # of official toplists
*The Godfather 1972, in 38 top lists
8½ 1963— a.k.a. Federico Fellini's 8 1/2, in 36 top lists
*Apocalypse Now 1979, in 34 top lists
M 1931, in 34 top lists
*Psycho 1960, in 34 top lists
*Pulp Fiction 1994, in 34 top lists
*On the Waterfront 1954, in 33 top lists
City Lights 1931, in 30 top lists
Raging Bull 1980, in 30 top lists
*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.

Top 10 unseen films by # of checks

*Fight Club 1999, in 15 top lists
*Pulp Fiction 1994, in 34 top lists
Inglourious Basterds 2009, in 11 top lists
*Se7en 1995, in 24 top lists
*Saving Private Ryan 1998, in 25 top lists
*The Shining 1980, in 23 top lists
*The Godfather 1972, in 38 top lists
*Donnie Darko 2001, in 17 top lists
The Departed 2006, in 15 top lists
*Reservoir Dogs 1992, in 23 top lists

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.
I thought I'd posted here more recently, but apparently not. Surprised it's been 3.5 years. Managed to catch quite a few of these biggies in the meantime, and I even enjoyed some of them. Of the original top ten, only The Godfather and remain unseen.

I will be watching them all at some point!

All are on my watchlist. Probably looking forward to Bande a part the most.

Come and See, Le samouraï and Yi yi were all seen in 2019, so there's a big turnover in the most official lists list. I'll need to see Pierrot le fou this year to complete one of my film goals, so the shakeup hasn't finished yet. Brick is gone from the favourites list (also seen in 2019), replaced by Never Let Me Go, which I'll admit I've never heard of.

Me too. :satstunned:

I'm more than 560 ranks lower, and the most listed unseen movie for me is Portrait of Jason (on 10 official lists). Although I have consciously aimed to see films on most official lists from time to time. It seems that everyone has not had that problem. :P

I've always dreaded the idea of not having any great first-time viewings later on in life, so I've tried to resist seeing those highly-listed films for the last decade or so. This New Year's Eve my partner and I got to watch Le samouraï together, and neither of us had seen it before, so I'm really glad I waited to see it until then. Similarly, I have friends who are film buffs, not nearly as obsessive as I am, though, who want to watch films as a group and it makes it all the more special when none of us have seen what we're watching before, so these films are real treasures to preserve as long as possible, whether we wind up liking the film in the end or not.

And for Napoléon I've always wanted to see it in its proper Polyvision triptych format, so I'm holding out until I get that opportunity, likely at Royal Albert Hall. Since I'll likely have to see it to complete my 2021 film goal I've already started thinking about a trip to London (or wherever it might be shown) and am hoping they'll have another screening of it in the next year or two (I don't know how realistic a possibility that actually is, of course).

You've nailed it perfectly, Leopardi -- I've had Jalsaghar and Berlin Alexanderplatz keyed up and ready to go for years (I LOVE both S. Ray and Fassbinder!), and I could easily see Roma, but those are some I'm saving for special occasions as life goes on, or for when I'm having one of the worst days of my life and need a special (and ideally, somewhat pleasurable) experience.

I'm also deliberately waiting for Napoléon; since it appeared in London and San Francisco with a triptych format and full orchestras, I've figured it might hit New York some time, or somewhere else I could conceivably travel, for a special first-time viewing experience.

(I do this with literature, too...I have, for example, a couple of really good Charles Dickens novels set aside, waiting for the right moment...)

I'm sensing another meet-up in the future! I wish now that I had gone to either the London or San Francisco screenings. It's now been over three years since the last one and I'm worried it'll be a long while before they try it again. If you hear word of a screening somewhere let me know!

Me too! A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations are tucked away for a special occasion yet to come. I don't know what or when it will be, but I do know it will be winter and there will be a comfy chair and a fireplace involved. Simple dreams...

For the first time in years I have a distinct top 5:
Avengers: Endgame (8 lists)
Joker (8 lists)
The Irishman (6 lists)
Knives Out (6 lists)
The Son of the Sheik (5 lists)
Everything else is 4 or less. I’m not opposed to watching the last two, particularly Son of the Sheik.

I probably saw the Olympia films and Koyaanisqatsi, actually, while in Chicago but for whatever reason have no distinct memory, and no record. I won't see the latter until I can see it in the cinema. W.R. I might see this month. No real excuse on the other two, just haven't gotten to 'em for whatever reason, they're both of high interest.

Only a little change there, and not much interest in seeing any of these - maybe #3.

:satstunned:
Judging from this page, I'd assume Armoreska has an iCM ranking of approximately 10,000. :D

I'd always be too curious to leave so many of the all time's greatest untouched. I couldn't sleep at night.
This still baffles me. 6 years later and Armoreska still hasn't seen a big share of films to be widely quoted as the greatest ever - and he probably doesn't care. :lol:
But then, so be it.

Soo, there we go! 5 years since my last post on this, a timespan in which 4 years made for either no checks at all or only for new films (2016-2020) exclusively. As quite a few new official lists were adopted in between, I'm curious to see the results in comparison :)
First thing I notice though is a mistake: What I called the films with "most checks" in my 2015-post is identical with my current list of unchecked films with "most dislikes" - seems I mixed them up in that post. Meh! I would have loved to compare that. It's a sad reminder, on the other hand, that ICM very much obviously had its peak of active/new accounts in that time around 2010 until 2013 or so. Not only will no new film (post-2013) ever climb up to the "most checked films on ICM", it also seems to be impossible to collect more dislikes for any new film than those in the ICM-primetime had. And it's not as if there hasn't been complete and utter trash in the meantime. Sad, sad.


Official lists:
1. Shoah (17 lists)
2. Mon Oncle (16 lists)
3. A Brighter Summer Day (14 lists)
.. Killer of Sheep (14 lists)
.. Point Blank (14 lists)
.. Sholay (14 lists)
.. A Star is Born (14 lists)
.. A Touch of Zen (14 lists)
9. Atlantic City (13 lists) / La maman et la putain / Oktyabr etc.

Most checks:
1. Rush Hour 2
2. Mamma Mia!
3. Enchanted
4. The Proposal
5. Superman Returns

Most favorited: (without TV shows)
1. Labyrinth
2. Anastasia
3. The Hobbit 2 - The Desolation of Smaug
4. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
5. Enchanted

Most dislikes:
(see 2015)


Analysis:
There hasn't been much movement in terms of lists for most of my former top omissions :mellow:
That bunch of most favorited films looks more fun than the most checked. Maybe, someday, eventually ..

To put this into perspective: I'm ranked #338 overall and have now 101 titles left which are in 10(+) official lists.

So, with the beautiful The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum by Kenji Mizoguchi I have finally watched all the top films still unchecked that were also on more than 10 ICM lists.
Funny thing, I have been trying to do so since I have joined ICM (11 years ago) but every time I was close to my goal, new lists kept popping up, moving away my target :)

So here is now the 5 Top films I still have not seen:
1) Les amants du Pont-Neuf (10 top lists)
2) Bigger Than Life (10 top lists)
3) Born Yesterday (10 top lists)
4) C'est arrivé près de chez vous
5) La chienne (10 top lists)

And after these, I still have 26 more films on 10 ICM lists. I guess it will be my next task to watch them, until new official lists are chosen :D

Been a looong time since I've posted in this thread, but I've made a lot of progress on the Uncheck # of Official Lists group with everything on 9 or more lists watched (Heimat was the giant elephant in the room that kept me back for a while). Here's what it looks like now:

# of Official Lists
1. Le feu follet a.k.a. The Fire Within (1963) 8 lists
2. Flesh and the Devil (1926) 8 lists
3. L'argent (1928) 8 lists
4. Mat (1926) 8 lists
5. Pixote: A Lei do Mais Fraco (1981) 8 lists

There are a handful of other films unseen on 8 lists as well including Tin Minh and War & Peace, so I'll probably be stuck here for a while. Also as you can tell, there are several silent films that I had saved for the Silent challenge not realizing it fell on the same month as the Animation Challenge (which is always gonna take priority for me). So I'm not sure when I'll get to these since I kinda let the challenges direct what I watch to some extent.

A couple of other groups of interest:
Unwatched Popular Films (# of Checks)
1. Love Actually (2003)
2. Pearl Harbor (2001)
3. Hook (1991)
4. The Last Samurai (2003)
5. The Fast & The Furious (2001)

I can't imagine why a three-hour Michael Bay movie remains in my unwatched stack.... <_<

Most Disliked Films
1. 2012 (2009)
2. Pearl Harbor (2001)
3. You Don't Mess With The Zohan (2008)
4. 10,000 BC (2008)
5. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

Woah, TWO Roland Emmerich movies in the top five.... Not surprising though. He's usually pretty garbage.

The only change on the official list is Pierrot le fou (seen last year for my film goal), replaced by The Killer. On the favourites list, Battle Royale, The Emperor's New Groove and This is England were all seen last year. On the # of checks list, all the Disney films from last year's list (plus Battle Royale) were cleared out. Even on the dislikes list I bit the bullet this morning and watched Home Alone 3, just to change it up a bit.

Those new Disney titles should get cleared in the coming days/weeks, while Napoléon and likely Synecdoche, New York will be needed for this year's film goal, so there will be more churn next year.
