That's interesting. I've just started working on this list to get a bronze in the past week. Yes, that's not bad for a Yank and I'm one myself. :lol:

I came to complain about my five lost awards, but damn that's harsh

At least you didnt loose Shorts. That must be one of my hardest kind of check. I can't stand those sneaky russian TV shorts.

Only Incredibles 2 left now. So I will be 4 platinums short until it comes on home video.

Unless the imdb votes start to drop quickly

Hi joachimt,

Your awards have been updated!

Updated
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (platinum, was gold)
:)

First time I completed this list, because I was always just a few recent titles behind. I once started working on the 2014 Dutch edition which I finished a long time ago. I still want to the finish the all editions version. I've got nine unchecked on that one. Two are recent ones (The Look of Silence and Bridge of Spies), but the others are missing subs.

Just used A Day at the Races to regain the IMDb Musicals Bronze award that I lost when Funny Girl entered the list. Yes, I suppose I could have watched the Babs film, but the Marx Brothers movie looked a lot more appealing, and while not among their best efforts (too many dance/music numbers breaking things up), I did appreciate the more solid plot than the average chaotic Marx comedy.

Argh. Dammit. Well, the 1954 version of A Star is Born, which I haven't yet seen, is also on the list. Might be time to finally give it a whirl. And I did like the 1937 version after all. Or I could just watch the Lady Gaga film when it hits cinemas down here. How bad could it be?

They've stuck it in both categories for now. Maybe it falls out of musical later if it's not one.

Speaking of awards regained, watching Murnau's Faust has returned me my Bronze on the 1920s list (lost after Lang's Spione made the cut). :D

I'm normally not very active in this thread, but Hellzapoppin' just brought me bronze on Rosenbaum. Finally. This might be the award I've been looking to the most since I joined iCM in 2009, so it's a special moment. :turned:

Now for the silver, of course.

And on a similar note to Gershwin, I achieved my 2018 goal and managed to get bronze on 1001 MYMSBYD last night with Hoop Dreams! :banana:

It's my first bronze on one of those super long (~1000+ films) critics lists, and is the longest list on which I have an award.

Longest list with
Platinum - 250 Most checked
Gold - 300 All time box office
Silver - 756 All Time Box Office
Bronze - 6x 1000 lists, only missing Have You Seen (...)

But I keep losing awards on every updated this month. Now it was Independent's turn.

But got halfway ()5) through all of them during the LGBT-challenge (BFI Flare was no. 95), Is at 98/190 awards now and only missing 2 and 3 movies for two more bronzes for an even 100.

I just recently got Bronze on that one myself, with The Other Side of the Wind. Actually it was intentional. I had it down to a couple a few weeks prior to it's release, so I carefully picked what I watched to make sure of this. :)

Nice one! I hadn't been actively thinking about it, I only knew I had been getting close. But this was a fine watch. I'm surprised how many Rosenbaum titles I saw on MUBI this year by the way, like this one.

Oh, and I think this was the last long critics list on which I needed bronze, so that makes it even prettier.

Anyone know what happened to the 1920's list a few weeks ago? All of a sudden I went from zero to something like 10+ unseen movies on that list. Then it reverted back to the original list a week later.


Also, I love that hyperkinetic Lindy Hop sequence in Hellzapoppin'

The TL;DR version is "IMDB is being IMDB." They seem to have changed how things are sorting, and it's affecting a lot of lists, but it was most noticeable for us in the 1920s list.

Did it affect more lists than the 1920s only? I didn't notice. I noticed a lot of changes, but in the case of the 1920s list the order was completely reverted, so it was a list of the lowest rated movies.

One thing that's changed is the sorting order when you do a search on IMDb - used to be that if I did an advanced search and sorted by my rating, it would list titles in order of my rating - most recently rated first - now it lists in alpha order with categories (doc, short, feature) separated. Irritating, and of course they just decide to do shit like this without bothering to ask users what they might prefer, or giving them options.

Well, that reversed list was one thing, but they've changed something about how they're sorting or storing ratings, which is causing all kinds of weirdness.

Award #95 thanks to The Square. What's more, with an odd number of Cannes winners so far, this award is safe in my collection until May 2020. :woot:

So, I think at least once a week I either gain or lose a bunch of IMDb awards. I know we've commented a bit on this elsewhere, but it also seems like it's appropriate here. And no, I generally haven't seen anything to gain/lose those IMDb awards.

I've been wondering if there isn't a secret duel to change the genre classification of some films. Incredibles 2 comes to mind as it seems to be popping in and out of some of the list. Of course the other possibility is it's fighting neck-and-neck with another movie or two.

Today I regained four platinums and lost one. I know both 2010s & 1960s were gains, but I forget the others.

What's happening is that they've changed the sort order for tied films, it's no longer popularity. But, whatever this new sort order is, they keep reversing it every day. So if you have 5 films with 7.9, one day they're A,B,C,D,E and the next day they're E,D,C,B,A. That's why, if you look at the lists, the increases/decreases are symmetric, and a bunch of films from ties that overflow off the list flip into and out of the list.

I have no idea why any of this is happening, though. Nor what the new tie sort order is.

I'm glad it's no longer popularity, anyway. I thought I saw the other day that King Kong was above Frankenstein on one list, but below it on another (1930s and sci-fi), but when I doublechecked yesterday it was the same order for both. So yeah, bunch of weird stuff happening with the imdb lists lately.

Speaking of those lists, is it possible to get an updated version of the excel/csv file with the list of all films for each list before filtering out for checks? I really like that one, but it's a few years old now.

I don't understand why films would be tied in the first place. Do their algorithms only count to one place beyond the decimal point or something, i.e. all 7.7s are the same? That's nuts. With thousands - sometimes 10s or 100s of thousands - of votes for each film it seems to me there should be virtually no actual ties. There's just no logic to this that I can see, but that's par for the course for that site.
