6 Films I have seen with Under 5 Checks, most of them Westerns:

Fun at St Fanny's 1956
Romance of the Rio Grande 1941
Thunder over Arizona 1956
Canyon River 1956
The Lone Hand 1953
Gunsight Ridge 1957

I have not mentioned the British sex comedies of the 1970s :D

Only 17 for me including 1 in a list ("Angano... Angano..." (1989)).

For some of them, it's too bad almost nobody saw like Angano... Anagano, Afrique je te plumerai, Un roi sans divertissement, Les disparus de Saint-Agil (only 14 checks!), Un ragazzo di Calabria or De Nuremberg à Nuremberg (one of the best French documentaries)

Just one, Moydodyr (1954) a russian animation from my childhood. Then there's a bunch of other russian animations and the first actual film with very few checks is Burial of the Rats (1995), something that I've also had vague memories of from my early childhood, which haunted me until some time ago I finally googled "women in fur bikinis living in a cave with rats". :D That one has 7 checks.

I have 167 checks with votes from 1-5 on IMDB. I couldn't do 1-4. It wouldn't work with those options.

Just over 200 on ICM with 5 or less checks. Most of them are Dutch films or even pre-1900 shorts.
Sing As We Go (1934) however is on 2 official lists and I even included the YT link, sadly only me and JF-UK have bothered to watch it.

I've seen 31 with 5 or less and 62 with 10 or less. There's a real mix between very good films and awful films in those.

I happen to like Keanu Reeves, so it's not really punishment (except for Bram Stoker's Dracula, which is torture). :lol:

A lot of mine are music-centric.

Fiction features:
Angel, Angel, Down We Go [unintentional, kitschy laughs galore]
Death at Love House [TV movie scared the heck out of me when I was little]
Degree of Murder [interesting, early Volker Schlondorff film with Brian Jones score]
Home Before Midnight [horrible...hack songwriter has affair with minor while Mick Jagger's brother looks on]
Le Berceau de Cristal [little to offer beyond the Nico factor]
Looking for Leonard [only watched this for the Superchunk score]
Lovedolls Superstar [totally amateurish but fun if you followed '80s underground bands in Los Angeles]
Negatives [quirky, interesting film with Peter Medak direction and the young Glenda Jackson]
Percy [strange British film about a man who gets a penis transplant...not as farcical as expected]
Revenge of the Stepford Wives
The Love-Ins [awful Timothy Leary-inspired tripe]
The Odd Job [worthwhile black comedy with Graham Chapman outside of Python]
The Phynx [kitschy flop about a rock band serving as foreign spies]
The System [solid Oliver Reed film about locals who try to seduce seasonal tourists]
What's So Bad About Feeling Good? [weak satire about a parrot who magically turns hippie malcontents like George Peppard and Mary Tyler Moore "happy"]
When Women Lost Their Tails [Lina Wertmuller madness with warped Morricone score]

Non-fiction features:
A Good Band Is Easy to Kill [about the indie-pop band Beulah]
A Technicolor Dream [about a '60s music festival featuring Pink Floyd]
Brian Eno: 1971-1977- The Man Who Fell to Earth
Derailroaded [the Wild Man Fischer story]
Family Band: The Cowsills Story
Fly Jefferson Airplane [tacky VH1-style compilation of old performance clips + soundbites]
Not a Photograph: The Mission of Burma Story
Revolution [surprisingly solid documentary about the '60s scene]
The American Dreamer [follows Dennis Hopper, circa The Last Movie]

Otherwise:
10 Feet [many experimental Fluxus shorts on this list]
1000 Frames [Fluxus]
ABC Afterschool Special: The Day My Kid Went Punk [more unintentional laughs]
Artype [Fluxus]
Be Glad for the Song Has No Ending [bizarre Incredible String Band vanity project]
Blink [Fluxus]
Blood Juice
Bone
Carmen Torero
End After 9 [Fluxus]
Fluxfilm No. 36 [Fluxus]
Fuddy Duddy Buddy
Invocation of Canyons and Boulders [Fluxus]
Kip and Kyle
Ginger Baker in Africa
Hal Ashby: A Man Out of Time
Hell Spit Flexion [Brakhage]
Honeymoon [John and Yoko bed-in]
Johnny Depp in Burtonland
Magic Journeys [3D movie shown at the Disneyland park]
Omozap 2
Opus 74, Version 2 [Fluxus]
Police Car [John Cale's Fluxus film]
Quimby the Mouse
Readymade [Fluxus]
Shout [Fluxus]
Stripped
The Beatles Come to Town
The Beatles Mod Odyssey
The Sid Saga Part 2 [wonderful]
The Sid Saga Part 3 [ditto]
Trace No. 22 [Fluxus]
Trace No. 23 [Fluxus]
Trace No. 24 [Fluxus]

First film in my "1 check" list is typical French obscure "qualité française": Les Yeux de l'amour, by Denys de la Patellière ahah.

"3 février 1997 Denys de la PAtellière Les Yeux de l'amour 1959 C"

1997... At this time Denys de la Patellière was already "ringard".

Other "I'm the only one to have seen this and with good cause" films:
Barrage contre le Pacifique, René Clément ranked 5
Le temps et la chambre, Patrice Chéreau, 6
La symphonie fantastique, Christian-Jacque (when it's not Denys, it's Christian-Jacque of course) ranked 6
Souvenirs d'en France, André Téchiné, 6
Seule, Erik Zonca, 6 (en même temps avec un titre pareil)
Poussière d'ange, 5
La poudre d'escampette, Philippe de Broca, 6 (Marlène Jobert quand même ! Nanar vous avez dit nanar ?)
Le pistonné, Claude Berri, 5 with Guy Bedos... welcome in nanarland.
Oh wait, that's all French cinema?! OK there's also obscure Russian documentary (merci Arte): Peterburgskiy dnevnik. Kvartira Kozintseva, Soukourov, 5
La passerelle, Pierre Arditi and Matilda May, nanarland (certainly two "stars" loved by Allison).
Oh pardon! Tu dormais.., Jane Birkin (yes...) 5
Monsieur La Souris, George Lacombe (nanareur) with Raimu (yes that's not Keenu Reeves, but I love this actor); I love the mention on ICM: "A.k.a. Midnight in Paris" LOL
Martin et Léa, Alain Cavalier (perfect example of French obscure director beloved by French critics and totally ignored outside of our country -- Thérèse is a masterpiece btw), 5 (don't you read: it's not Thérèse, it's Martin et Léa!).
L'honorable Catherine, Marcel Lherbier with Edwige Feuillière (on parle d'un temps que les jeunes de vingt ans ne peuvent pas connaître... Edwige Feuillière quoi... le génie français ne passe pas sur Ipad).
L'argent fait le bonheur, Robert Guédiguian with Ariane Ascaride and Jean-Pierre Daroussin (qui d'autre?) Tellement français. Or Marseillais.
Katia, Maurice Tourneur (no, the father), with Danielle Darrieux (the longest longevity in narnarland), 6.
Justinien Trouvé, ou le bâtard de Dieu (what a title! nanarama), 5
Gardez le sourire, Paul Fejos (même les émigrés font des nanars) with... Annabella (the biggest star at this time).
Frères: La roulette rouge, Olivier Dahan, 5.
Oh! a nanar from hollywood: Flame and the Flesh, Richard Brooks with Lana Turner (a lot of blonde stars in nanarland).
Le fils du requin, Agnès Merlet: that's not nanarland, but intellectualand; 6.
État des lieux, Jean-François Triché ("g pa tou kc"), 5.
La fiancée des ténèbres, Serge de Poligny, 4 (wtf).
Una nanaro: Domani domani, Luchetti, 5.
Le crime ne paie pas, Gérard Oury (incarnation parfaite du nanarateur), with... ... Danielle Darieux and... Edwige Feuillière. Tow blonde stars and the two only star appearing in this little shop of horrors.

Curiously no 7 but two ranked 8 films. Both by Naruse (fortunatly Hideko Takamine was not blonde!):
As a Wife, As a Woman: ranked 8.
Kotan no kuchibue: ranked 8.


A lot of interesting films with 2-5 checks:
Le nouveau monde, Alain Corneau with.... James Gondolfini!
In the blonde nanarland genre, I call, Michèle Morgan for Le miroir à deux faces, André Cayatte.
Another Alain Cavalier film: Libera me.
Another Marlène Jobert film (is she blonde?): L'amour nu.
Another blonde nanar with Catherine Deneuve and Fréquence meurtre.
Another blonde film with a forgotten French star, La foire aux chimères, with Madeleine Sologne.

I guess all the Danielle Darieux filmography is here, but someone else could share this chance with me because this member has seen Premier rendez-vous... oh wait, he's inactive. From France... it was Danielle Darieux herself!

I stop here for bad movies. Les nanars, c'est bien quand c'est court.

Some unacceptable poor checked (yes! that's a shame!^).

Ils étaient neuf célibataires, Sacha Guitry, french comedy of late 30's, masterpiece.

A Woman's Life, again the couple Naruse-Takamine, 4 checks, masterpiece.

Only 4 great films on these 75 films but 3 Naruse! and 2 with Hideko Takamine! Naruse doesn't mean nanar in Japanese!

I have 188 entries with up to 4 checks
but I haven't checked everything I ever saw by far, so I suspect the real number to be much higher

the most interesting number though, is 47, that is the amount of entries on which I am the only 'checker'
there seem to be a lot of HK and "weird asia" titles amongst those, and a few I might reccomend:
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/bakushi/
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/petu ... i+blorong/
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/le+j ... supplices/
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/jeun ... +detresse/
http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/i+delfini/
of which the last two will have the most broad apeal for this forum. I am highly surprised actually to see I am the only check on those titles!

I make it 81 (0-4) or 94 (0-5), not counting TV series or episodes thereof. The zero is for a Moroccan film I got from KG but couldn't find on IMDb.

When I first joined IMDb I spent about a month mining old movie lists and trying to figure out what I'd seen - so many on my hyper-ultra-obscure list are things I saw before home video was ever dreamed of (and mostly without benefit of TV). There are also a few modern operas.

Most are japanimation... as expected tbh. Around 80+ or so. Series, ovas, shorts, everything. And I haven't even checked all the ones I've seen, it's too tiresome, no cover/info etc does not help. It's severely underrepresented in icm anywayz.

Especially when these get 5 or 10s of thousands of watches in other more relevant sites. Next would be shorts, and some greek films I guess.

68 1-check titles (from 154 under 5 checks), most of them more or less forgotten Spanish features. That's 2.1% of my total checks. Sometimes I feel like a "loner check scout" though I know others deserve that title much better than me.
