Your Top 10 Highest Ranks on Official Lists

#1

Post by sol » May 14th, 2017, 1:13 pm

Sorry if this topic has been covered before, but I couldn't find a thread on the subject.

What are the ten Official Lists that you rank the highest on?

Obviously, for folks with tons of Platinum Awards this might be a little boring, so if this is you, why not share your ten highest rankings for lists where you have not hit Platinum?

This is me:

I find it interesting that with four of my five highest ranks I have not even achieved a Bronze Award for the lists in question. :blink:

And of course, three Greek films placing me in the top 300 for the list is why IMDb invented the now extinct [gonemad] icon. :wacko:

3 lists completed, so from 4-13:
01 #106 Top 100 Animated Features of All Time (86.0%)
02 #109 100 Animated Feature Films (BFI Screen Guides) (75.8%)
03 #112 Guldbagge Award (40.0%)
04 #139 All Time Box Office (93.5%)
05 #159 Fantasy - imdb (94.0%)
06 #170 Animation - imdb (92.0%)
07 #244 FLM's Best Swedish Films of All Time (23.8%)
08 #340 Annecy Festival's 100 Films for a Century of Animation (50.0%)
09 #383 Action! The Action Movie A-Z (56.8%)
10 #393 50 Greatest Sequels (86.7%)

Highest below 20% and 10%:
12 #406 Bodil Award Winners for Best Danish Film (15.7%)
21 #756 UNESCO's Memory of the World: National Cinematic Heritage (7.2%)

and looking at % it's kind of surprising these aren't in that list (the rest of my top 10 in percentage):
96,0% FilmTotaal top 100 96th - 2024
94,0% Adventure 13th - 488
92,0% AFI's 100 years...100 thrills 33th - 998
92,0% Sci-fi - imdb 15th - 563
91,1% MovieSense 101 72nd - 1635
89,6% Reddit top 250 71st - 1626
88,0% 1990s - imdb 17th - 661
I'm guessing most of these have been around for ages, so many have been able to work on them

Damn, blueboybob. You have achieved 50 out of 50 for both Romance and Horror and even that only gets you ranked #35.
Yes, I know...Show
...that the rankings have simply not been updated yet. Sounds like you recently saw a horror romance movie (what a combination!).
Two of your top ten lists are curiously among my bottom ten: All Time Box Office (#11970) and Worldwide Box Office (#25011).

Yeah, the 1990 list seems to the one decade that most users have completed. I mean, I only have 19 films from the 1990s list in my blind (or 62% complete) and that ranks me at #17600 - making it my 8th lowest list.

The all-time and worldwide are "popular" movies that my wife, kid, and friends will actually watch. That is why I have seen most of them.

I've got six platinums (biggest one is TSPDT), so I removed those.
So I'm #1 on two lists without completing them. :)
I'm sharing the #1-position on Rosenbaum with allisoncm, but I'll probably beat her on the next update. Got two new movies lined up to watch.
Anthology and Brief Encounters are there because I watch all official shorts.
Don't know why I'm so high on Publico.
Harvard 2x: shorts again I guess.
500<400: As an active forum member it's logical to rank high on that one. Watching all FotWs certainly helps.
Cien anos...: no idea
Greece: I've always worked on all editions of 1001MYMSBYD. The Greek editions has a LOT of additions from their own country. While other countries just include 5 to 10 own titles, Greece included 50. A lot of those are on the official Greek list. Several others are unofficial checks.

Interesting to hear the reasons behind your high rankings, joachimt. B)

Regarding the two lists for which I crack the top 120:

Australian Cinema - living here, most of the films on the list are readily available on DVD

Sundance Film Festival - I guess most of the pre-2000s winners are a tad hard to locate for most, whereas I own a bunch of them on VHS

Well, it's obvious on my list. There were just an animation challenge, so 4/10 are animation related. Two swedish lists, as that is our closest neighbor and we distribute most of them.
All Time Box Office and 50 Greatest Sequels, well they are well-known movies, of course. All distributed here.
Action! The Action Movie A-Z, I was a young adult in the 80s
I can't really explain why Fantasy is there.

Didn't say anything about the first two though. Obviously, these are two lists I've been actively working on. I've seen everything that is available to me (except two Rosenbaum-titles that became available only yesterday).

1 platinum for me and the 10 highest rank lists of this moment
I keep up to date with festivals/recent movies with a focus on Japan and other Asian cinema. Also watch most blockbusters in IMAX, but not enough to get a good ranking. Next to that I have always been interested in cult cinema, the obscure and the weird... and I guess this very mixed bag comes across perfectly in this top 10 of mine

25x Platinums (mostly IMDb stuff...)

Of the 10 that follow, a bunch more IMDb lists, the three Oscar lists I haven't finished:

-Best Picture Nominees (10th place) Missing one from this year, and two that are only available at a University archive. I will finish tbis one day.

-Best foreign (13) missing the latest, which I will watch very soon.

-Foreign nominees (38th; 170/313) Actively working on this.

-Iran (40; 32/121) Again, actively working on, as I dicovered they produce a lot of stuff I love! Also, most region lists are easy to get high rankings, just watch a couple.

-Locarno (59; 15/85) Dunno. I started high on this one somehow. Most of what's on it isn't too obscure, either. Every now and then, I'll go looking for something off it, and have a few actually downloaded at the moment.

The rest are boring lists ;)

I only have 2 plats, so I may as well post those:

Film-noir
Best Cartoons Ever - A Gift List From Jerry Beck

The rest:

#35 More Noirs from TSPDT (313/712)
#60 250 Quintessential Noir Films (214/250)
#69 100 Animated Feature Films (BFI Screen Guides) (81/99)
#86 LoveHKFilm.com's The Best Hong Kong Films Ever (65/203)
#90 Nickel Odeón Top Spanish films until 1995 (19/100)
#100 iCM Forum's 500<400 (157/500)
#106 The Best 100 Chinese Motion Pictures (37/104)
#127 Guide to African Cinema (7/42)


Three noir lists in the top 4, two animation lists, and two Chinese/HK lists. I also have the other Chinese list and the martial arts one in my 15 highest ranking lists.

Curious to see where I will rank on the anime list when (if?) it becomes official - checked 78/104 there.

1. All Time Box Office 193 / 200 #79
2. Documentary 26 / 50 #145
3. All-Time Worldwide Box office 619 / 692 #146
4. Fantasy 47 / 50 #159
5. National Board of Review - Best Film 69 / 86 #166
6. Film Comedy 189 / 351 #169
7. AFI's 100 years...100 cheers 92 / 100 #176
8. Golden Globe Best Picture Winners 123 / 145 #176
9. Best Of Rotten Tomatoes 97 / 100 #178
10. Sport 32 / 50 #183

(Not counting my six plats).

Not too many surprises, other than people don't watch documentaries apparently. Film Comedy was easy to get as I was huge into watching VHS from my local store (they had a great 3 for $3 deal on Friday on older releases) and actually rewatched movies I hadn't checked but had seen in order to get the bronze (thanks for reminding me of childhood trauma Parenthood). Obviously I also check out award winners, hit movies, and am a big AFI fan.

I can't account for Sport (other than many being on AFI lists) but Music and Musical are right below it so that may fall soon. Several recent releases (Logan, Get Out, Beauty and the Beast) are on more than two of these lists, and I'd imagine many of the lists on the cusp of a trophy will get me a huge boost (one BAFTA check will put me in the top 202).

A lot of people have platinum on that one, so they don't list it. If you've got 49/50 you're not very high in the list-ranking, so it's often not among the best 10.

More people (148) have platinum on the 2000s list, which requires them to watch La meglio gioventù, Lagaan, Swades, Dil Chata Hai, 3 Idiots, Taare Zameen Par and all the LOTR films all of which are over 2hrs45 min, than have platinum on the Shorts list (111) whose total runtime is under 13 hrs, less than the combined running time of the first three films.

True, but in terms of purely "gaming" the system for trophies the shorts list of imdb is a massive headache because (since so few rate films) new and disparate titles populate the list. You have somewhat dry foreign animation classics, early works of major directors, silents, short film auteurs, Bugs Bunny, Wallace & Gomit, the Muppets, and a comic book fan film in the top 30 (the choices likely to stay) alone. That's a wide breadth of taste, and since the list can change at any moment most just stick with a gold.

I first got bronze and by the next update I had gold, but I've never gotten platinum (the big imdb cooldown on this site last year actually lost the gold I maintained for a long time) because I felt there was too much swing in the list. Not only that once outre titles drop off the list there is a good chance they'll never regain official status.

Currently have 43 plats. And then 8 more lists that will be back to Plat once Logan and Beauty and the Beast hit Blu-Ray. So I'm ignoring those 51 lists. Top 12 becomes:

The last Kubrick and IMDb Doc are unavailable, or those would be Plat as well.
Some Plats of note: All-Time Box Office, 100 Sci-Fi, Ebert, Empire 500, 1001BYD, Annecy, Empire World

I have 4 left and they are all in russian. My normal sites don't seem to have subs available. Maybe I'll look harder for them this week.

Excluding 10 plats (no IMDb lists, but mostly simple 100 films lists, and the only one worth mentioning would be the BFI documentary list).

Nothing interesting here. Aiming for plats in the two western lists by the end of the month. The "high" ranking in three of the ten lists is because I've watched a lot of short shorts. The rest is IMDb lists and the Amanda Award list.

The Portugese one is kind of ridiculous. That's what you get for being into Oliveira and Ruiz.

My top 4 are pretty obvious as I'm partly danish and partly german and love silent films.
