I copied the lists from Wikipedia and added a few countries that are used on IMDb. I can't remember if I removed some countries but I can add those back. These lists were more of an experiment anyway. Nobody asked for them, I added them just for fun really.Fergenaprido on Sep 16 2016, 09:01:18 AM wrote:The countries for the regional lists seem a bit off, and none of the lists are properly alphabetized.
Azerbaijan is listed both here and in Southern/Western Asia.
I would argue that Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan (and maybe Georgia), despite having some territory in Europe, should not be in this list.
The list is missing Yugoslavia, Serbia & Montenegro, Andorra, and Faroe Islands (though probably on Yugoslavia would have films that would make the list).
The list is missing Brunei, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Laos (assuming any of the them has a film that would make the list) and lists 'Korea' but not 'North Korea'.
Azerbaijan is listed in both here and in Europe.
The list is missing Afghanistan and India, but films from these countries show up in the top 250.
The list is missing Bangladesh and Nepal.
It seems you've covered all of Asia except the 5 Central Asian former soviet republics. Maybe add them to the Southern/Western Asia list?
I think these regional lists are great for showcasing cinema from around the world. Would it be too much trouble to make an African list and a Latin American & Caribbean list? Then everyone would be included except USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other small countries of Oceania. Maybe there could be an Anglophone list, with the big English-Speaking countries (including non-English films from those countries) and move UK & Ireland out of Europe and into this list?
Asian lists come from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography ... a_for_Asia
European list comes from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europe#Politics
I can add new lists, just give me all the countries.
