Hmm, the Timeout lists are better than I remembered kind of on par with this list, better in some regards not in others. The other two aren't so hot.

Those two I hadn't seen before.

Hmm, they're still English language focused, but that's common so not really a mark for or against. They're not bad, though. Despite the book one having Hollywood in the title it isn't all Hollywood films (though still mostly). At a glance that one might be the best, actually.

At least the Time Out London one has Shaolin Soccer. If you look how deep they had to dig on the other lists (Cool Runnings!), Chow's international break-out hit seems like a given.

Cool Runnings (and some other similar choices like Happy Gilmore and Space Jam) are reflective of the sensibilities of the creators. They're reaches cinematically but not culturally (which is also why the list is so US and recent films focused).

I'm adding that book one to ICM right now and it clearly has a more movie person focus vs the other list's US sports writer focus.
Here's the book list: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/rand ... ulanarchy/

10 Best African Films of All Time

The 15th annual Tarifa-Tangiers African Film Festival (FCAT) and magazine Fotogramas have added to its repertoire by commissioning a group of 10 well-respected critics and authorities on film to vote on, what they believe, are the best African films in the history of cinema. The organization calls the list "the first classification based on expert opinions of a cinematography which has gradually gained a foothold in Spain in recent years."

The film critics who created the list come from a number of backgrounds and countries and include journalists, directors, professors and more.


Ballots are available. Only 10 jurors, though. :(
I counted up the votes from this poll. 26 films got more than 1 vote. I think I got rid of most of the duplicates, but I didn't add the list to IMDb, so I might have missed a duplicate.

Has some gaps and recency bias, but this is probably the best sports movie list I've seen so far.
Is that the right Dear Basketball? Or, should it be this?

EDIT: There's also this book, that I added to icm a few years ago. The source is now 10 years old, and it suffers from the same American bias that most sports lists do, but, it's there. https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/100+ ... waynathan/

It looks like they updated this list. Now it's a 100 movies, and they changed it from 10 to 12.
https://redtri.com/must-see-family-films/
I added the new version of the list to iCM. I wasn't sure which Star Wars films to include because it just says "Star Wars Series (1977-)". It also says "Please remember to start your Jedi with A New Hope and not The Phantom Menace". It doesn't say anything about the new Star Wars films, but the picture is from one of the new films.

The Hankyoreh's 100 Korean Films

If I'm understanding correctly, it was a poll of 38 experts. The article was published in 2019, but according to the link below, the poll was done in 2018. The most recent film on the list is from 2016. Parasite is mentioned in the article, but not on the list, because it hadn't been released yet. Unfortunately, the list seems to be in chronological order, instead of ranked.

Decided to have some fun with Google Image Translate. Took a little bit more work than I thought it would :lol: , but there seems to be a significant overlap with the already official Korean lists. Big thanks to Letterboxd for having the Korean titles.

I added this list to iCM. It's a 2008 poll, and several thousand people voted.

Edit: It is the same list. I don't know why they published the list in that order, instead of by number of votes, but here's the list ranked by votes.

I found some lists on Letterboxd.

https://letterboxd.com/crew/list/most-f ... boxd-2019/
Most fans per viewer on Letterboxd—2019
This is like the Letterboxd version of iCM's Most Favorited. I think they meant "most liked", not "most fans", because I noticed a film on the list that has 0 fans (typically there are more likes than fans).

https://letterboxd.com/crew/list/most-f ... boxd-2019/
Most fans on Letterboxd—2019

Based on standard deviation of ratings.

"Fans" on LB are people who chose a film among the four that show up on their profile page. People have very different criteria for this, and many just go for their four most recently watched favorite or whatever, so I don't find it a super useful metric. "Like" is also very dependant to what people think it means, but at least it's not as narrow, I like that a bit more.

I edited my post after you posted. I think they meant "most liked", not "most fans", because I noticed a film on the list, Solitary Acts (4, 5, 6), that has 0 fans. Or maybe people fanned it and then unfanned it.

Edit: Here's a blog post about the list: https://news.letterboxd.com/post/171102095353/fans

They use the word "fan" in the blog post, but that doesn't explain why a 0-fan film is on the list.

Letterboxd put together a few lists of films for families to watch together while most of the world is on lockdown, by asking a group of Pixar directors for recommendations. I've added everything to iCM.

Original Blogpost

Pixar's Picks: Family Films - full list of all films mentioned

Pixar Directors Recommend: Films for Families (All Ages) (letterboxd)

Pixar Directors Recommend: Films for Families (7 to 12 Years) (letterboxd)

Pixar Directors Recommend: Films for Families (12 Years and Over) (letterboxd)

@Fergenaprido: The link for the first list is wrong (you linked to the edit page instead of the list). You also have some wrong links in the descriptions.

Saw you posted it in the other thread. Looks interesting. I can give it a go. Do you know where the source list is? There is at least one questionable inclusion in the mubi list (a British film), so I'd prefer to also have the source to doublecheck.

I can't find any other online sources.

I'm not sure if this book includes both lists (critics and readers), or only the critics list:

I think I found the Kinema Junpo readers list: https://amasakichannel.web.fc2.com/movi ... 2009e.html

It's the list titled

Yes that looks like it's it. Even has the other Kinema Junpo list if we want to doublecheck that one.

I'll work on it and see how much I can locate with the Japanese titles, hilarious google translated English titles, and the Mubi list.

Edit: Here's the list: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/kine ... genaprido/
I can change the title if you think it should be. Work in Progress.

If you're searching for Japanese titles, regular Google will probably be more useful than Google translate. Japanese Wikipedia might be useful as well.

The critics list is available here: http://web.archive.org/web/201005010645 ... index.html

I'm searching the Japanese titles in imdb itself. Been able to confirm all of the films so far, though I imagine some of the lesser known films might not have them listed.

And yes, I've gone through that link already; I posted it in the other forum where I noted some inconsistencies. I'll compare the two sources and see if there is anything different.

Okay, first question.

時をかける少女 - This is The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Transliterated, it's Toki o kakeru shôjo. However, there are five films with this title, though I think it's likely only one of these two (the others are very underseen or came out after the list was made).
1983 live action version - Mubi lists this one, and it's also on the main Kinema Junpo list
2006 anime version - more well-known, and the first one that came to mind for me

I'll add the 1983 version for now, but if anyone knows how I can double check, please help :)

Edit: Second Question

犬神家の一族 - Transliterates to Inugami-ke no ichizoku. Two versions, both by Kon Ichikawa
1976 version - Mubi lists this one
2006 version - came up first in icm search, and was the only result in imdb search using the Japanese title

I don't know how to double check, but it's probably the 1983 version. The 1983 version is on the critics list. Also, in addition to this film, there are 4 other Nobuhiko Obayashi films on the list.

It's hard to be sure, but my guess would be 1976. Neither version is on the critics list, but the 1976 version was on Kinema Junpo's best of the 70s list, as well as Kinema Junpo's annual top 10 list, and Tadao Sato's list.

Thanks mjf, I'll stick with those, then.

Next up: 人間の條件 (The Human Condition) - Mubi has a separate entry for the entire trilogy, plus one for each film. I'm 99% sure that this is for the trilogy as well, so I'm including all three films.

喜びも悲しみも幾年月 - Google search for the Japanese title seems to indicate that it is Times of Joy and Sorrow, and Mubi agrees, but the Japanese title for that film is actually...
喜びも悲しみも幾歳月 - so it's one character off. Probably okay, but not sure.
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/yor ... oshitsuki/

男はつらいよ 寅次郎相合い傘 - Tora-San and the Many Different English Titles - This is part of an extensive film series, but I'm pretty confident that this is the right film, and I think it's the same as the one Mubi chose
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/oto ... +aiaigasa/

めぐりあい - I couldn't find this film anywhere, so then I tried plugging the title into Google Translate to see if the Mubi transliteration was correct. Instead of Nuguriai, it came back as Meguri-ai, and I found that film on imdb from the same year (1968), so I'm reasonably certain I have the right film. It shows up under the AKAs on the imdb page.
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/meguri-ai/

Also, I commented on the Mubi list about this last one above, as well as removing the random British film and replacing it with one they were missing: Bullet Train
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/shi ... daibakuha/

Taking another break so I can watch Accident on Mubi before it disappears at midnight :)

Just include all 83 of them if you aren't certain :p

I should really watch one of those, at least to get an idea of what they are about. I'm somewhat familiar with the work of Yamada, so I have some expectations though.
