@themagician: Please don't use RFNAPLES' list. He rates his favorites 10/10 (which is 9.6% of his ratings), and for everything else he just copies the IMDb rating.

RFNAPLES_rating = floor(IMDb_rating + 1)

This is true for every film that he didn't rate 10/10 with one exception (I'm guessing that one film's IMDb rating changed and he hasn't updated his list yet).
I only rate movies that I own. My ratings are not identical to IMDb.

It's interesting to note that in the Top 50 list of this week, 2 movies are on no list at all, and have less than 400 checks.
#15 Invisible Waves, by Pen-Ek Ratanaruang - 5 voters
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/invisible+waves/

#29 46-okunen no koi, by Takashi Miike - 7 voters
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/46-okunen+no+koi/

Maybe it would be worth it to watch these movies and either vote for them in the next 500<400 list (or downvote them from such a high ranking if only a minority of users actually like them).

I made a new template for the top 1000 that looks similar to mubi lists: http://themagician.x10.mx/icmboardtopli ... large.html

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Did you remove the thingy so we could see who had rated each film?

I've decided to do this today :D I just watched Invisible Waves and it's pretty bad. Content is pointless and the acting is terrible, but has some nice cinematography. Reminded me of some film that I can't remember the name of, so that's not of any use I don't know why I mentioned it. It's slow paced, but is just a waste of time. Hated the tone, hated the atmosphere, hated the music, didn't care about what was happening. I just wanted it to end.

What I remember about Invisible Waves is its influences from The Shining. It was okay.

Anyway, I've been thinking about a single list that has features, shorts, documentaries, and maybe tv movies (there'd be only seven). And maybe I could auto-post the results of that e.g. next month. Thoughts?

I'll happily take any lists :P Could be interesting to see how shorts and docs are ranked against features.

Here's the list: http://themagician.x10.mx/icmboardtopli ... bined.html

If I counted correctly there's 144 documentaries which is quite a lot. Shorts: 34. TV movies: 7.

Quite surprising that something by the magician isn't automated, right? :o

My list: http://www.imdb.com/user/ur49416243/ratings

Only 809 ratings, out of 2100+ checks here... seems daunting to try and figure out which films I've checked but haven't rated.

Sorting that out is not so hard. Just some comparing formula in Excel. The hardest part is rating all those missing titles on IMDB.

I can't access our highest rated movies page... It seems your account was suspended, themagician.
Does the issue come from my laptop, or is it real ?

I think it was here that themagician posted an amazing script that let us click the name of someone on IMDb and then we would see their page in themagician website. It doesn't work anymore, I guess because the other website is down.

Mighty, can you update the ICM-list? It looks like we're the new IMDB top 250 by overrating new movies (Inside Out is on #1). ^_^

I migrated over to a new imdb account a while back. Please use

http://www.imdb.com/user/ur51815261/ratings

instead of

http://www.imdb.com/user/ur2618873/ratings.

Yeah, I was about to ask the same. How does one "migrate" an account anyway and why? Surely sebby didn't start rating all films from scratch? You can just change your username in the preferences.. indeed curious.
