Not really. I mean, watching just those 100 wouldn't be enough on its own to get a Bronze.

After more than 2.5 years on iCM, I have finally caught up with enough mainstream claptrap to have achieved 50% on the All-Time WW Box Office List...

Image

...or at least until another blockbuster makes $200,000,000. :whistling:
:cheers:

Now you just have to keep up with all the movies that keep getting added to it every year.

<_<
Just regained my Bronze on the list thanks to It Chapter Two (as well as Knives Out and Ford v Ferrari making the grade). It was a little devastating when I lost the Bronze a couple of weeks ago with that new update that included all those new Chinese films that I'll never see. :ermm:

I'm still 44 films away from an All-Time WW Box Office Bronze. I may be lacking the requisite masochism.

Silver on Academy Award Best Picture nominees. B)

Image

This was something that I already had good progress on before joining iCM. I had seen most of the nominees from the 1950s to 1990s, but it had been the catch-up game for me with 21st century nominees since registering on iCM - and Gerwig's Little Women finally got me the award.

Lost my bronze on All Time Worldwide Box Office - for the second time too.

Looks like one of those awards that I was never meant to have. My ranking on the list jumped from #6816 to #5268 with the update to 1000 though. :turned:

I'm going to lose my silver All Time Box Office once the message gets sent, I think for the second time as well. I'd just regained it again last November 30th, so the glory was short-lived.

Managed to keep my Worldwide Box Office bronze by 9 checks. This means that that award is my longest unchanged award, having first acquired it on June 22, 2012, and with the new update it makes it even less likely that I'll get a silver in the next ten years; I should manage to keep my bronze, though. The only other two that I have unchanged since before I joined the forum are Most checked silver (August 10, 2012 - currently 7 away from gold) and 100 Animated bronze (January 3, 2013 - currently 10 away from silver). Everything else I've gained or upgraded since joining the forum.

We have exactly the same rank (down to 5270 now) and I also lost my bronze there. But only 9 away, I would not be surprised to regain it without necessarily trying - there certainly are a few films that I have wanted to see on it, though not many are priorities. And of course there are always the new films that will bump old ones off the list and I see plenty of new mainstream films.

Amazing how we were saying this less than six weeks ago as we now enter a period in which the two lists will probably remain stagnant. :ermm:

Award #105:

I still remember when I was over 40 checks away from a Bronze on the list. Doubted that I would make it since Action is far from my favourite genre (unless it's kung fu) but there were a lot of eligible crime films this month. :party:

Silver on the Time Out British Films list. :banana: I'm surprised that less than 200 users have made it this far through the list. I didn't think that any of the films were all that rare/uncommon.

Regained Plat on a bunch of IMDb lists as part of my movie derust cleanup: Family, Western, Romance, Horror, Drama, Film-Noir, Music, Indie, Animation, 2010s, and Adventure. Debating whether to torture myself with Hababam 2 to get 70s and Comedy back to Plat.

Also regained in the cleanup: Reddit 250 plat, 1001 Before You Die plat, Roger Ebert plat. And new: Time Out Romance plat, Euro Film Award silver, AV Club 2010s bronze, TSPDT 1001-2000 bronze

That's insane. Well done. Still 84 away from a Bronze on that one. :blink:

I guess it's pretty safe for the moment, though I guess I should watch some other stuff to secure the award for post-Covid times. :ermm:

I don't follow the "awards" too closely and had to look up which level I'm at for Criterion. So...I'm at Silver but still am a whopping 168 films away from a Gold award. I doubt I'll ever get there. I have a private list of unseen Criterion titles "of interest," and it's just 39 films.

Award #111:

Less than 200 users have this. It's quite easy to find 50% (or more) of the titles, but I guess a lot of them just don't appeal to the average filmgoer. :ermm:

Award #114:

Road Movies has a lot of obscurities in it. I'm ranked inside the top 250 users for the list with a mere 50% on it.

I think you need to get to this point:

:D
Actually the only one I remember having a hard time finding was Demon Pond (1979). The rest of them are pretty readily available out there somewhere.

But you're probably right. I'm sure a lot of people see this list as "beneath" them. I personally had more fun with it than some of the more respected lists (I can't say I'm the biggest fan of ol' Uncle Amos and his Subversive Art...).

I'm at 41 on the Deuce (ok, the Grindhouse Cinema Database now). Surprised I'm not a little higher, I do watch a fair amount of that stuff - I guess maybe just not the right ones. Have about half of the remaining films so perhaps next month I'll hit up some of them.

I like a lot of the Vogel stuff but I'm never going to try to complete it, I just am not masochist enough to watch the Vomit Action stuff - saw something from that area not long ago by mistake, or just not knowing what it was, and that was enough. You got to draw the line somewhere I think, unless you are primarily watching films just for the checks, and I'm just not in that group, shocking I know.

Watched the 6 hour long The Best of Youth last night, which was my final check on the FilmTotaal top list! It’s my 6th ever platinum, and my 4th plat at the current moment since I lost two others.
