A rare Silver:

Image

When I first registered on iCM, I was less than 10 checks away from a Bronze on the list, so this was one of the very first Bronze awards that I actively worked towards. And it has taken me over three and a half years to upgrade it to Silver...

I know, frankly it's disturbing. I would have liked to watch such famous movies in 20 years.
But, completing the Ozu filmolist is paramount.

Monogatari wasnt that much better than the average Ozu, not 17 lists better for sure. Looks like it simply got spun by critics into the limelight mostly by happenstance.

I got a message that my "Tim Dirks" award has been downgraded from silver to bronze, and yet I've seen exactly 75% of the films (84/112). I don't obsess over ICM awards, but that's puzzling. And I saw "Cuties" just three days ago, which suggests my award actually should have gone UP from bronze to silver.

Yeah, I saw that. Weird. Four new films have been added, including Cuties, but I think that was months ago.

There has been a bug with some lists where you should watch 75% +1 to get bronze. It's been like that for as long as I'm on iCM. The weird thing is it goes back and forth sometimes.

I've heard people mentioning before they were upgraded after checking and downgraded the next day. You should have been upgraded before you got downgraded.

Here's something funny, from the Korean challenge from August 2012.
jeroeno wrote: August 1st, 2012, 6:13 pm 02. Maeumui gohyang (A Hometown in Heart) (1949) 8/10

Finally after almost three years on ICM, the first check on the 100 Korean Films list.
By no means the best list on ICM but for some reason this has been the one list that's been THE ICM list for me because I didn't see any movies on this list before I joined ICM. I joined private trackers, started collecting AND started joining challenges, all because of this one list. And now I finished it. :circle:

My FilmTotaal has been upgraded to silver. The films I have left to see are all significant classics. I'll get a platinum this year.

Woow, at 188/250 checks, I just gained ..
Your bronze iCheckMovies's Most Favorited award has been updated to silver :party:

I never really worked on this list, especially not after 2016. It just now happened en passant with enough older titles climbing into the list. I'm really happy because I love the composition of the list, it brings together many of the strengths of a geeky community. Getting to rank #75 and silvering it without extra effort means that my earlier choices in film must have been lucky. :sweat:

Now to gold! .. someday.
