ICMForum's Favourite Movies 2022 Edition NOMINATIONS Due Apr 2

#1

Post by PeacefulAnarchy »

Deadline: midnight PST Sat Apr 2, 2022 (8AM GMT Apr 3).
Once again it's time for the forum's favourite films (includes shorts, docs as well) list.

Rules:
1) Make a list of your favorite films (Films include feature length films, short films, documentaries, mini-series, whatever has an entry on IMDB, except TV series no video games either.).
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!

2) There is no maximum number of films, but each film on your list must only be listed once. Your list should have at least 10 films in it.

3) Submit a link to your IMDB/ICM list here, by midnight PST Sat Apr 2, 2022 (8AM GMT Apr 3). I will download all lists at the deadline, so feel free to submit an incomplete list and keep editing your list until the deadline.

4) I will assume your list is RANKED unless you specify otherwise.
Other than a ranked list you can submit your list in one of the following ways:
- Unranked: All films get the same number of points (Pts are determined by the length of your list, same amount of total points as if the list had been ranked).
- Partially ranked: Top X is ranked, rest is unranked
- Group ranked: You have to specify the groups that go together, all films in the group get the same number of points. (eg: 11-20, 21-30, 31-50, 51-100)

Last year the point system was Points=100*(0.5)^((R-1)/175) I'll be using the same this year. Here's some example values for the less mathematically inclined:

Some helpful tools for making an imdb list:
Imdb Helper: This Greasemonkey ViolentMonkey script lets you paste either movie titles or imdb urls all together and will search them in order, saving you from having to cut and paste one by one.
Text Linky A firefox addon that lets you highlight multiple links and copy all the urls together at once. Useful if you've already got an existing list on imdb you want to copy, or for copying advanced search results (like all movies you've rated above 9). LinkClump if you use chrome.

1-60 Ranked
61-198: 9 stars unranked
199-385: 8+ stars unranked

Might make a better rating for Top 100 and extend the list a bit

No new top 150 in 2 years? I thought my update of 4-5 new entries was bad.

Also don't forget about the two versions of Scenes from a Marriage and Fanny and Alexander. If possible, it would be handy if the host could merge the votes for these.

150 films ranked.

Some major changes compared to last year, watched a lot last year, and builded a new list from scratch. Expanded with 25 films, but the expansion isn't enough for some films as more than 25 films are first-time watches in the last 12 months. Last year i had a top 125. I didn't want to go beyond 150, so i had to remove films out of the list.

So 13.3% of what i've seen is in my list. Ideally, i want this in time to be lowered to 10% but when i watch more movies, i would also probably watch more movies that might not be a fav, sometimes you have a good idea of what you might like (so far) and what is less likely something you'll be liked, and i'm more selective with what i watch. I think this is a fair list length.

It's very risky to mess wit the voters lists... especialy in that poll where grouped vote is allowed and every list points are computed "by hand".

I can easily extract who voted for theses dual existing version ... Das Boot would be another obvious exemple ... so every voters witll know for witch version he voted ...

Melvelet : i don't think you wanna do that .. but are the 61-199 and 200-364 intended to group vote as well as the note distinction ?

If you merge the votes you should also consider that some people might have both versions on their list, so if this is unchecked and you just add up all the points then one person essentially can vote twice for the same film.

Maybe i wasn't clear enought : merging votes is a very bad idea... Only solution would be to post witch person voted for witch version so they can decide to change before the cut out ...

Anyway : i'm not that Poll Host ... PA is :rolleyes:
(i'm just helping gathering the votes ,) :folded:

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!
