ICM Forum's 500<400 2018 Nominations Sept 19

ICM Forum's 500<400

Create an IMDb list or iCM list of your favorite films with fewer than 400 checks, and post it in this thread by the end of September 19.

You can submit a list in one of three ways:
1. Imdb list
2. ICM list
3. List of imdb urls if you can't make an imdb list.
Make sure your (imdb/icm) list is public!



View your least-checked checks
View your least-checked favorites

Rules:
- Films released in 2017-2018 are not allowed.
- Shorts, Documentaries and mini-series* are allowed. TV shows are not allowed.
* Mini-series must be 14 episodes or less, not multiple seasons, and not planned to be longer but canceled. The series should be intended as a single unified work and not episodic.
- Your list may be ranked, unranked, partially-ranked, or group ranked. In a partially-ranked list, the top X films are ranked and everything after that point is unranked. In a group ranked lists all groups get the average of what the films in that group would get if fully ranked.
- Films that reach 400 checks by the deadline will be removed (so you don't have to do it yourself).
- You must post your own list in this thread (but you can ask someone to create an IMDb list for you, if you want).

You can submit a list in one of three ways:
1. Imdb list
2. ICM list
3. List of imdb urls if you can't make an imdb list.
Make sure your (imdb/icm) list is public!

Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50
#1: 100 points
#51: 50 points
#101: 25 points
#N: 100 / 2 ^ ((N-1) / 50) points

Scoring for unranked and partially-ranked lists:
Every unranked film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).


Some links to help you make your list:
Eligible titles that you've rated on IMDb (sorted by your rating)
Eligible titles from some IMDb list (replace lsXXXXXXXXX with any list ID #) (sorted by your rating)
Linky or Multi-links (Firefox), Linkclump (Chrome): Add-on that lets you copy many URLs at once. Useful for copying advanced search results (e.g. all films that you rated 9 or higher).

The imdb filter lists are a little out of date, I'll update them in late august and again right before the deadline. They should be a good starting point though and I'll remove ineligible films anyway.

Last year's list. I see 4 of them is above 400 now, but I need to edit it before the deadline anyway. (And I plan to rank the whole list, now it's only the 185 first)

It's going to be partially ranked, but, I don't know what yet, as I've obvisouly not done any work on it yet.

Currently a work in progress as I'm starting from scratch but I will get there by the end. Currently features a lot of children/family movies as they have the smallest checks but as I progress up the check amount more adult oriented movies will be included. List is ranked.

I'd be surprised if Lavoura Arcaica doesn't make it. Luckily there are no downvotes in this poll like there are in DtC and enough people loved it, so I think you have a winner. At least it's high on my list.

Jean Gentil and Incomplete Eclipse from the Worldcup entered my list this time
also slightly more emphasis on "cult" titles, and some Japanese and Brazillian titles I hadn't selected before
And hopefully i'll check out a few suggested titles before the deadline

Faraway, so Close is on there twice. Hopefully that means it gets counted twice. ;)

I might rearrange my list from last year a little. but out of my top 25 (including Lavoura Arcaica) only my #1 (Man Facing Southeast) has climbed above 400 checks.

Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

There is some time until the deadline, so I post a suggestion here, for those who like experimental filmmaking. (e.g. Die Parallelstraße #50 )
A dutch friend of mine just recently recommended me a movie, that I think I genius.

My ranked list:

I've included multiple episodes of both Black Mirror and Documentary Now! on my list. My thought is that for both of these shows their episodes meet the definition of a short.

I've updated it with some new films here and there since last year's poll, though I haven't checked to see if there are any films there that now exceed 400 checks. I'll leave that to you to sort out, Peaceful. :)
