This thread is filled with "Moravian Tarts." Maybe we could just rename the forum De Wallen?

Knalds hijacked "check whore" with a preference for the phrase "Bohemian Prostitutes". I decided to take it a step further. For those who don't know, Czechia has two historical regions, Bohemia and Moravia. While most know tarts as sweets or pastries, it's also English slang for "women of questionable virtue" or "slags that walk the streets". As best I can ever tell, it's "nicer" slang than "whore" which has a decidedly nasty connotation.

De Wallen is both a nod to the fact the iCM has strong ties to the Netherlands and it's the reputed name of Amsterdam's "red light" district - a place for tarts, prostitutes, and whores; though I'm guessing most have no connection to the Czech Republic.

We, on the other hand, want to Make iCheckia Great Again!

Not sure how I did that. I've only seen like 40 movies in 2020 and I doubt a lot of them were official. Did some users delete their account?

Anyways going to watch more films now.

There is no number in this picture, but I'm at rank 2499 and 90% of the google results are for this Patek Philippe Ref 2499 watch, so this is what I'm going with.

Or, he'll just lobby the mods to adopt a couple new mega-lists every other month so he's got a few new checks to keep him busy! ;) I wonder how many Oscar nominees he's seen ...

Seriously, since you mentioned it, why not expand the already official bad movies list with the movies that got one and two slimes?

Gems such as Class of Nuke 'Em High, Cool As Ice, Double Dragon, Hard Rock Zombies, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, just to name a few, would become official checks!

Like 20 days later, 1000 spots higher!

TOP 20000 I'm coming!!

I have 673 checks now, i need 975 checks for top 10000 which is do-able, since I'm focusing on finishing my watchlist of 472 movies this year I suspect most of those are official except for some cult and Asian ones

Of course as is often the case, it's at least in part because somebody - maybe 2 people - went dark, somebody or bodies ranked in the 50s I think - anybody know who?

Actually the first few dozen pics that came up were mostly of This Guy, who I'd never heard of and who doesn't exactly seem like someone I want to give even the tiniest attention. And the sexual ones are mostly kind of boring (well, the ones that are appropriate) and I didn't feel like wasting much time at the moment. Plus alcohol-themed pics are my trademark.
