Another suggestion: Could there be a separate official list for European film award nominees for best film in a same way than with Oscars?

I'd second that suggestion! Also the Asian film awards only started quite recently, but it might be nice to give them a similar treatment.

Once Heard "Film Fanatic" book by Peary was unsuitable for official list because of some Adult Movies were included ...(34 of them it's true it's a lot ..??)

then i realized today working on correcting my main excel file that some Adult movies were already on official lists ... :$

Deep.Throat 1972 (in 3 lists :facepalm: )
Electrosex.1975 1970
The.Man.from.Onan 1971
Mona.The.Virgin.Nymph 1970
School.Girl 1971
Tales 1971
Thundercrack! 1975
The.Sperminator 1985
Emanuelle.in.America 1977
LA.Plays.Itself 1972
A.Free.Ride 1915
Edward.Penishands 1991
Sorority.Sex.Kittens.3 1997

I was under the impression that the exclusion of Peary's list was for the fact that the complete list is soooo looooong. I don't understand why adult films would be a problem as such if they are considered cinematically or culturally significant by a respected source (like Peary). And, as you pointed out, there are already some adult lists on official lists.

I'd third that suggestion, but it doesn't matter. The mods aren't interested in adopting "all nominee" lists at the moment. :shrug:

There's actually 23 adult movies currently on official lists, as can be seen from using the link:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/?so ... enre:adult

Deep Throat 1972, in 3 top lists
Lovemaking 1968, in 2 top lists (Brakhage!)
Caligola 1979 — a.k.a. Caligula, in 1 top list
Edward Penishands 1991, in 1 top list
Electrosex 1975 1970, in 1 top list
Emanuelle in America 1977 — a.k.a. Brutal Nights, in 1 top list
Eveready Harton in Buried Treasure 1929, in 1 top list

LA Plays Itself 1972, in 1 top list (I seem to remember this got on the Doubling the Canon list by accident because people thought it was Los Angeles Plays Itself)

I would actually support Guide for the Film Fanatic becoming official, although I do acknowledge other people's concerns about its length.

It's not ineligible for adoption, but I'm not sure if there are enough people who want it to be official. I think most people prefer shorter lists.

I am one of those people that has no desire to see it adopted. If you are going to add that monster list we might as well go all the way and add an "all films on ICM" list.

There are even more than that but some just aren't tagged as adult. You've got all those Amos Vogel "art" films plus movies like Shortbus, 9 Songs and In The Realm of Senses that feature unsimulated graphic sex scenes but are apparently deemed more artfully done or by prominent directors to avoid the "adult" tag despite them including scenes that are even more graphic at times than some of the above listed.

I've been volunteering all my checks as an official list for years now.

BTW, how many items are in the monster list referenced above?

Over 4000. I like Danny Peary and personally wouldn't mind seeing his Cult Movies books turned into an official list (though I"m not sure that there isn't a lot of overlap with existing lists), but those add up to 200 films if I remember right. 4k is pretty extreme IMO, anything over 1,000 titles should be looked at with extra scrutiny.

On the book 1644 films "only" are discribed with a little text for each, the other 2400+ are just a apendix list

Yeah, you're right. Still, 1644 is a lot, and I guess - not having the book, just having looked at it a few times from the library - I'd have to ask, are those 1644 titles really all put together in a meaningful context? I don't remember it being Peary's "favorites" list or anything like that, more something that he thought was a list people should see. Which... could be valuable I suppose, depending on how much we all value Peary, and how much this potentially expands the ICM "canon".

But I suppose I'm still more interested in smaller lists that cover territory not already covered so much - country lists from the likes of the Philippines and Israel, giallo and other more specialized/localized genres, etc. Seems to me there are enough huge general lists as it is.

Oh, and I'm not sure whether these are all truly "adult" (I haven't seen them), but these films are also official.

People Meet and Sweet Music Fills the Heart
Nanami: The Inferno of First Love
The Erotic Witch Project
Sexmission

I'll keep saying this. Statistically the 2010s are immensely underrepresented and it's really demoralizing for someone who likes contemporary cinema.

To finish with Peary's book, of the
1644 "Main" films, https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/guid ... banjohype/
1301 Are already official Checks
343 are not official checks close to 21%

The 2656 Films from the addendum List https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/guid ... aretrilby/
1465 Are already official Checks
1191 are not official checks close to 49%

IMHO, the Main list is enought ,)

But Coryn will not be happy ... List stops in 1986 ... :satstunned:

I've already pointed out before that 2010s have less than half movies on official lists than for example the 60s or 70s. Let alone if you cummulate the lists.

Well, a movie will never enter canon before time passes, just to prove that it can stand the test of time.

Just push for more film awatd lists, and we will get a new movie in every list every year.

Quota movies just because they were made a specific year are not particularly scientific. Let quality decide.

The only factor I can think of when measuring quality is Favourite (%) and Fav/Dislike. Quality according to our ICM userbase that is, but since this site is purely kept alive by its user base I think it should also give them a strong voice when it comes to deciding which movies should be on official lists.

It's definitely not a perfect way of measuring which movies are better than others since there is no way of doing that but let's say we pick 2 movies, 1 movie made in the 50s, one in 2010s. Both with a 10% favorite rate, statistically the movie from the 50s will be in more lists than the one from the 2010s.

Source: I am a nerd and decided to play around with movies on official lists about 4 months ago. All results pointed in the same direction. Older movies have it way easier on ICM than newer ones.

The idea of making official decade lists based on iCM data has been discussed several times, and I would be interested in such lists, but I'm not sure if it's ever going to happen.

We do really need more film festival/national awards lists to be official and I think should always be one among every new crop, because there's so much to choose from.

If there's one list that could really give a boost to 21st century films would be TSZDT. Horror has seen a renaissance lately and I'm suprised to see such movies like Mama, It Comes at Night, Halloween 2018, the iranian Under The Shadow, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Neon Demon, just to name a few, not making the list whereas a lot of old garbage (b-movies, z-movies, dracula's movies, frankenstein movies, etc..) get the spotlight.

I agree.
I think countries like Italy Japan, Korea, Argentina, China/Taiwan, Hong Kong , Russia, Israel, Canada and Australia, could have their national awards list adopted.

Speaking of that, anybody have good lists from

The Ottoman Empire
Rhodesia
Austria-Hungary
Narnia

Really pathetic that we can't at least come up with some top 10s here.

Yeah, Narnia, Mordor, Rohan, etc - adding to the imaginary and made-up country lists that started with Finland and Belgium :P

You know how some radio stations stopped playing MJ's music after the documentary? Maybe we should do the same with US-centric lists since they elected Trump.

No, we're punishing the country that voted for him.

Most of them didn't vote for him. They're already suffering 4 years of punishment.

You're EXTREMELY optimistic.

And of course what happens here affects everybody in some way, starting with our ever-increasing love of fossil fuels and deliberate waste and ignorance of the environment and the world around us in general. America isn't just saying fuck you to itself but to the whole planet.
