iCM Forum's Favourite Movies of the 1940s

:Crtiticker: Nominations topic :Crtiticker:

Working On the results !!

5 years ago, for the first time, we chose our favorite movies of the 1940s, now it's time to do so again.

The deadline for submitting your list is going to be set @ 26 October 2019

- Movies must obviously be from 1940 - 1949....
--> Only exeption would be Ivan The Terrible Part II witch was filmed on the Period, but released after Staline Death on the 50's.
Shorts are allowed.
- :imdb: IMDb-lists or :ICM: 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)
- Your list may be ranked, 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.

Some help :
:ICM: 1940s movies on IMDb ordered by your ranking
:ICM: The 2014 Nomination Thread
:ICM: The Old List
:ICM: The Old Long List

After all you can't really tell the movies because of the french titles isn't it ? ;)

Only 3/87 films that got a pass from me. I gave Dumbo, Pinocchio (both Disney) and Let There Be Light (war doc) 2.5/5*

So yeah, not going to participate with that.

If I had actual favorites, I would definitely enter a list, no matter how few there were.
But I can't comfortable recommend any films from the 40s, so submitting a list wouldn't feel fair to other people's favorites.

I've seen at least 50 additional films from 1940s since the last time we did this list, so I'm more well-rounded now. :)

Nopes, rated that 1.5*

I appreciate what it did for animated anthologies (big fan here), but didn't care for the mix of jolly Disney and heavy classical music. Also wasn't impressed with the interaction between animation and music, they could and should have done a lot more with that.

December Challenge: Image
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!

Easily one of the best movie decades imo. Its the decade with the second most amount of favorites after the 1950s for me.

Not my favorite decade for movies at all. But i've seen a total of 231 features and managed to make a top30 nonetheless
and there is even a John Ford movie in there, one of my least favorite directors managed to make a movie I actually like in the 40's! :)

ICM Poll: The Freaking Forties

What a decade! I found over 150 titles from the era when there was still screen magic. It's no nostalgia, because I wasn't born yet. Blooming genres were film noir, comedy. Hollywood provides the majority, but there's also Italian neorealism, some French movies and other countries. Lower in the list are some animated shorts from Looney Tunes and Disney.

Tim,

With your super script abilities, would you be able to handle “group ranking” ?

In a group ranked lists all groups get the average of what the films in that group would get if fully ranked. Hosts give that option sometimes, sometimes not, not sure why.

"some hosts" give that option: that's just PA. He does the calculations himself in a spreadsheet. Lonewolf and I always use the filmcounter-script made by mjf. That one doesn't allow group ranking. If Tim is willing to do everything in Excel, that's his choice, but since it's his first time, I wouldn't recommend it.
