iCM Forum's Favourite Films of the Current Decade So Far; 2019 edition; Nominations

iCM Forum's Favourite Films of the Current Decade So Far
2019 edition
Nominations

Image

It's time to do this again.

The 2010s is the decade we are currently living in. All kind of things are happening all around us. Amidst all of this, there are also all kind of movies made; some great, some terrible and everything in between. Now the decade is almost over, it is fun to see what our favorite of this decade are so far and how this list evolves. Which movies are here to stay, which ones disappear and which ones are sleeper hits slowly crawling up over the years.

The deadline is June 28th
  • Nominees must be from 2010 - now (According to IMDb, which means the year in brackets next to the title, not the release-date in your country.)*
  • Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.*
    *Imdb will be leading in this, but if you have good arguments exceptions to the rule can be made in consultation
  • Imdb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make one of those, ask another user to help you out.)
  • Lists can be any length.
  • Each nominee can only be named once (of course)
  • Lists can be ranked or unranked or partially-ranked In a partially-ranked list, the top X films are ranked and everything after that point is unranked. When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.
Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50 (since that's what we've been using every year)
Scoring for unranked lists: Every film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).
List length will be 250 again.

Some help:
2010s movies you rated on imdb
2010s movies on a imdb list (replace XXXX with the list id)

Last year lists:
iCM Top 250
iCM Complete List
Please check if your list is stated and linked correctly. So there won't be any hassle with having to recalculate the results after we have started. Any volunteer who wants to count participants with me?

My plan is to do this at least next year again also, so we cover the remainder of 2019. After that we could do this a couple years later again, probably after we redone all other decade polls, to see how those years influenced the list and more people have had time to catch up on a lot of them. .

As Twin Peaks (2017) was allowed on last year's list, I trust it's allowed on this years's list to, yes?

Although personally I don’t think it belongs here, cause to me it is tv-series not a mini-series. There are enough people who think differently. And I’ll allow it.

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?

What was the deadline date for LAST year's poll? I want to know how far back in my checks to scan for new additions.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Season 3 of Twin Peaks makes no sense if you haven't seen the two first seasons, so it's clearly a TV-series

I made a top100 (out of about 150 movies scoring 8,5 or higher)… the top 60 or so are very solid, top20 certainties amongst alltime favorites

13/100 female directors

Then you at least will know who all these old people that the season keep throwing at us are. They are just nostalgic fanservice and get a few seconds each, but their roles are completely irrelevant if you don't know their backstory.

There's plenty of films based on TV series that you won't make sense if you haven't seen the TV series: The End of Evangelion is the first thing that comes to mind for example.

BTW, Twin Peaks The Return did screen theatrically at MoMa.

203 entries based on my top 530 ... so clearly one of my favorite decennia. If I get 5% of my top 100 in the list I'll consider it a win though. No doubt it'll be mostly US genre/arthouse crossovers (Black Swan, Neon Demon, Isle of Dogs, ...) that'll match.

All ranked.

Well I just added in all the new viewings since last time, and the list came to an exact 200; can't really beat that and unlikely to see much before the deadline so here it is. Top 60 ranked:

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls068188417/

And because it will inevitably come up in discussion, in the results thread if not here, and I have these stats handy now:

88/200 are primarily/substantively American productions.
120/200 are primarily or entirely in English.

Here's my new ranked list. I'm keeping 250 movies, and switched from imdb to ICM, which is easier and works better.

13 new entries since last year...

I don't check the weekly threads often enough and didn't know you had gotten around to An Elephant Sitting Still. :cheers: A nice pleasant film eh? I'd show my kids if I had any, maybe on a double bill with My Neighbor Totoro.
