Finish 'Em Off Challenge!! - Get Those Damn Lists Done!!

Finish 'Em Off Challenge!!

Image

For all you completists out there, it's time to get those lists finished and earn those platinum awards you've been coveting!

This is the place you come to complete those lists you've been putting off.

Do you like to leave things unfinished? Here's the Glass Half Full Challenge!

Rules:

- You can only work on one list at a time. Yeah, this rule might annoy you, but it will get the job done!
- all the same rules as the other challenges apply (no rewatch, length rules, etc...)
- Unofficial lists are fine
- You can go for Gold (or less) if some films are currently unavailable on a list.

Participants:

3Eyes (Lists completed: 0; Movies Seen: 0)
AdamH (Lists completed: 0; Movies Seen: 0)
Arthur Yanthar (Lists completed: 0; Movies Seen: 0)
Cippenham (Lists completed: 0; Movies Seen: 0)

I'm starting off by finishing the David Thomson list: "Have You Seen?" I have 2 more before I can say yes to all of his questions.

1. Fröken Julie (1951) Alf Sjöberg (7/10) (Have You Seen List)

Great cinematography, I wasn't completely convinced by the entire movie, but it had some memorable performances and some memorable scenes.

I'd love to join it.

One question: Can I move on after I've seen all available/subtitled films from a list?

I was wondering about that. I personally am going to focus on lists I can complete fully, but if you guys want to do that, go ahead.

Sure I'll join. I'll do the most masochistic move possible that I will probably regret, but it is only 8 films. I'll try to get platinum on imdb's comedy list.

Oh yeah and ever changing lists like IMDB lists are not allowed. Cause then you have to refinish them all the time.

And frankly I'm helping you out here.

EDIT: If people really want to do the imdb lists, then fine. I guess you can just make sure to say that you are just refinishing a list for the round up.

:lol: it probably is a good move then. What about lists that change annually like the few top 250 lists (not imdb's). I assume ICM's most favorited doesn't count either then too.

You know what, I don't think being strict is really necessary. All lists are fine.

Can I really upset the OCD amongst us and shoot for the stars! go for bronze on Golden Foundation? Note: at this moment 50% puts you in the top5 for that list. I would attempt, like HVM said, to watch all available films eventually but bronze comes first, obviously.


Actually, first I'm going to platinum Best Cartoons Ever.

I'm working on two lists for platinum but since I have to choose one of them, I choose FESPACO. I have 5 movies left for platinum.

No, Aujourd'hui is still missing but... it will be released in DVD in France on september the 3rd. Then I'll buy it and rip it and all the movies of the FESPACO list will be available.

I will join and work on Roger Ebert: The Great Movies list (3 to go) - I think they are available, not sure when I will see the first one though at the moment- I wonder if A Woman's Tale is anywhere but KG, so will check on that. Good news its on Veedh.

2. Sait-on Jamais... (1957) Roger Vadim (6/10) (Have you seen?)

Well this was not a very good movie, however the score and cinematography were really good and a few scenes were fun. The script was ridiculous though.

I would join this challenge but it wouldn't work for me as there are hardly any lists I am close to completing (other than IMDb). I wouldn't mind going for an alternative challenge such as getting into the top 1000 (or whatever number applies best for you) of each list. Although I wouldn't include lists like the box-office.

Nope.
But you've seen it... what constitutes a check? :P

I guess I can't get platinum but at least that's one less film to be tortured from. Kemal Sunal might be the best comedy actor ever though.

There's a couple of the Turkish films that either have no English subtitles or we watched with terrible Google-translated subs. I should really uncheck them. I'll never work on the IMDb top 50s again so wouldn't mind losing those checks. A lot of them do have English subtitles and all the Indian ones I watched from IMDb did.

Since unofficial lists are fine, my first list is:

Brian Pendreigh's Top 20 Scottish Films

I worked on this list ages ago and I only have four left (My Way Home, The Brothers, Breaking the Waves, Orphans). Been meaning to finish it for ages.

1. Ko to tamo peva [Who Sings Over There] (1980) Comedy List - 4/10

This was certainly much better than the Turkish mafia films, a bit of it actually reminded me of Underground. However this film was very underwhelming.

Yea I noticed that you, rokp, and Gershwin favorited this film. I probably wouldn't call it a mafia film, I just couldn't get into it. The rest of the list on the other hand... wish me luck. I even have another Hababam film to watch. At least Sholay seems like an essential film for Bollywood.

I gave it a 4/10 as well. A million miles ahead of Hababam but not something I could get into.

I know our taste in films usually differs, but I liked Sholay a lot. Possibly the most entertaining Bollywood film I've ever seen.

Awful film.

The only one I haven't seen on your list is Barfi! I can safely say I'll never be watching it. My IMDb mafia days are long gone.

Good luck with your quest though :thumbsup:
