All shorts on iCM list

#1

Post by AdamH »

How many have you seen?

I'm up to 271. About to watch the Pan shorts. It would be good if you could see the top users for personal lists. I noticed a certain user has only 4 left unchecked on the list...

150. I guess if I cared about my ranking on ICM this would be the list to attack..

I watch shorts from the list occasionally but I normally get bored of them quickly. I might start focusing more on ones from Doubling the Canon as they've seem pretty good so far.

I love short films. Plus it boosts my ranking, it's all good. I have seen 370. Found the courage to watch Nuit et Brouillard only yesterday. It's amazing what they accomplished in 30 minutes. It's really hard to talk about, I'll say only that.

The ability to see the top users on every list would be a great addition.

280. I do check out this list occasionally and also the favorite ICM board shorts lists (the ones on no official lists).

In general I rarely get anything out of the really short ones (less than 5 minutes), perhaps they are just too short for me to leave any impression. Quite a few of the really short ones I can't remember by looking at the title, but I know I've seen them.

430. I'm shocked that my number is higher than some of the veterans on here!

And I'd definitely like to see a top users list for personal lists!!

If you want to watch good shorts, you might want to check out the iCheckMovies' Most Favorite Shorts list.

790. I think I can only legitimately see 8 more (the Histoire(s) du Cinema series) for a maximum of 798, which would be 8 shy of Gold on this list.

I noticed the Rip Van Winkle series of early short films on the list. There's a compilation of them on Youtube, but it's missing Rip Passing Over the Mountain. Has anybody seen that?

Has anyone here succeeded in finding Ascensor (1978)? It has 10 checks on iCM...


Edit: It seems that many familiar faces here erroneously have checked Czechoslovakia 1968 (1969)

I've seen 593. I generally hate shorts and I've only seen so many due to massive short sprees to boost my rank in the past. Now I do small ones occasionally, but it hurts me so I try not to do it too often.

Okay, so Rip Passing the Mountain was the same short as Rip Passing the Hill, just a different title. I somehow thought I had checked the Hill short and Mountain was a different one but then I looked at my recent checks again and realised that I just had made a mistake.

I don't think it's erroneous.
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xeiebu ... shortfilms

Czechoslovakia 1968 (AKA Czechoslovakia 1918-1968) is a 1969 short documentary film about the "Prague Spring", a failed Czechoslovak uprising against Soviet rule. The film was produced by the United States Information Agency under the direct direction of Robert M. Fresco and Denis Sanders.

320. I like having short films as a "reserve" that I can turn to if I (for whatever reason) start dropping in the ranks. The number will rise soon, though, since I have "A Hollis Frampton Odyssey" on hold at the library.

I think you've got the wrong short there, pal.
Where is the footage of Chamberlain, Hitler and Brezhnev?
Why isn't it in color like it says on IMDB?
Why doesn't the run time match up with that listed on IMDB?
Why is there no English narration like it says on IMDB?

And most importantly, according to the IMDB description: "A virtually wordless visual history of Czechoslovakia from 1918 to 1968, with the last half focusing on the events of the Prague Spring of 1968. " Your link only has the events of 68.

OK, if it's the wrong one I'll uncheck it - no problem :)
Strange, since this guy has posted almost 100 shorts on DM, but probably he got the wrong one here...

These have got to be the easiest checks just about.

The films is available on amazon:

What a great country where you have to pay to watch national archives...

From that list I've seen 777, and I just unchecked Czechoslovakia 1968 :)

Of the 118 I haven't seen, 19 are in my watchlist, meaning that they're available somewhere in the internet. 1 isn't in my watchlist, but I just found maybe it's in my reach: a vhs copy with english subtitles of Kiarostami's Be Tartib ya Bedoun-e Tartib (1981) can be seen at the Cineteca di Bologna (Italy)

Sometimes I use the Enhanced ICM random selector to pick which to watch, ignoring the awful and the unobtainable. There are a few which I have no plans to watch.

Seen 630/895.
A lot are probably impossible to find, but still there are nearly zero titles without checks. Top user on this list is probably majron. If you find a title with only one check, it is checked by him/her. I PMed him/her, answer was (s)he saw them in a school archive.........

Definitely. He/she has checked all but 4 of the shorts on the list. That must be one hell of a good school archive.

40 - I make no bones about it, I'm not into shorts at all and never really have been. In my eyes they'll always just be a cheap way of getting official checks, how many of you would have ever watched finished the 'Best Cartoons Ever' list if it wasn't for ICM?

Yes, let's figure everything we'd never do if it wasn't for ICM and see how bad it is. Because the website is not really supposed to make you do anything positive, am I right?

And that's one of the reasons why you'll never be a real film buff.
