#95: Family - #371 (43/50)
#96: 1960s - #371 (46/50)
We're nerdy around here - plenty of stats to go around. And welcome to the forum! :cheers:

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Slowly but surely climbing the rankings. It seems like watching movies on lots of lists is helping.

#95: Documentary (#2712, 8/50)
#96: 1940s (2723, 30/50)
I'm still making progress even with the newly added lists taken into account. And I'm down to just three lists with 0 checked movies.

#97: Brief Encounters (#2638, 20/250)
#98: 100 Best British Films (#2639, 32/102)

Surprised I improved on this matter, since I almost entirely focused on lists that I had way below the threshold.

I also appear to have improved in ranking for some inexplicable reason. I thought my median used to be around 200 or something.

Halliwell was one check too many from being here for the four month in a row, so I could easily seen something on the greek list to keep up the apperances. But this should be random.
