First month of no progress (mainly due to focusing on top 25 lists and IMDb unfavorably updating).

Mine are the Chilean movie list (#373) and the Portuguese movie list (#374). Pretty similar lists, in concept and accessibility.

My median lists:

#2275 Silent Era's The Top 300 Silent Era Films (37/304)
#2287 CineChile's 50 Best Chilean Movies of All Time (1/62)

Really happy that my median rank is now below 2300, which is where I was sitting for the longest time. One of my medium-term goals is to get my median rank to be sub-2000, but I've got a ways to go before that's a reality (I need to break sub-2000 on 20 more lists at the moment).

So, I've been basically inactive with lists since 2016 and remember to be in the Top 1000 for almost any list and 500 for the most. Dropped out of these for the lame AFI lists, lost even more ground on Indian, Turkey and musical lists, but still can be satisfied:

#103: Roger Ebert's Great Movies 331 / 410 -> #486
#104: Anthology Film Archives's Essential Cinema 135 / 542 -> #486


Ebert's list is a fantastic film canon, I often am surprised and happy to see great, overlooked films there. The other one is more of a rank-cheating short-dump for me. :D
If I see myself working on lists, probably more on the ones I'm really bad at, so the middle/median rank wouldn't change much.

Main goal 5-6 years ago was to complete the Peary's physical book.

Then discovered ICM oneday ang got interested on the hight number of lists films.

Gone down the lists by numbers to max my rankings... then discovered the short trick.

Sometimes, on the road i see that i'm only a few films away from an platinium so i take the extra steps.

Have met some great and helping people along the way ;)

November update:

#1972 IMDb's 1920s Top 50 (21/50)

Woo, my median ranked list is sub-2000! I guess my next goal should be sub-1750, but that's going to take a while. Still, good to celebrate the victories!
