A friendly reminder that -- as indicated in the OP -- I will be posting the results for this Challenge in approximately 11 hours time.

At this point it will have been December all around the world for more than a whole day.

Don't miss the deadline!

26. The Phantom Carriage (1921)

Great effects and super cool for its time, but the story left me underwhelmed.
Ditto. Sjostrom's The Wind is a much more satisfying silent film (if you haven't seen it yet).
I haven't yet - thanks for the rec! The only other Sjostrom I've seen is A Man There Was, which I liked just about as well as Phantom Carriage.

:circle: :clap: :circle: RESULTS! :circle: :clap: :circle:


Many thanks to everyone who participated in this Challenge. With it now being December the 2nd everywhere in the world, I hereby present the final results.

We had 41 participants in the Challenge this year. Collectively, we had 564 equivalent feature film viewings. When this Challenge was last run (February 2017; link), we had 13 participants who watched 156 equivalent feature film viewings. Based on total viewings, participation was up by 360% this year. I blame maxwelldeux's highly addictive Challenge Olympics for the increased participation. :worship:

Top 10 participants:

Participants
RankiCMer# of Watches
1 zuma 83
2 72allinncallme 69
3 jeroeno 49
4 funkybusiness 37
4 psychotronicbeatnik 37
6 maxwelldeux 26
6 sol 26
8 weirdboy 17
9 nimimerkillinen 16
9 RogerTheMovieManiac88 16


Congrats to zuma on a first Challenge win this year (and a second Challenge win overall). It was a tighter race after second and third place. Funky gets the Invisible Man award for posting a bunch of viewings in the eleventh hour to climb up to (tied) fourth place. Runner-up Invisible Man awards go to nimi and Roger for doing the same, but (with slightly less viewings) to edge tarr, OldAle and vortexsurfer out of a position in the top 10. Nothing is ever certain on the iCM Forum! Expect the unexpected; your place in the top XX for any Challenge is never certain until the results are posted!

Full leaderboard is up-to-date and finalised in the OP.

Average number of films seen per participant this year: 13.76. Are you above or below average?

How did the 13 participants go this year who participated last year? Ranked in order of where they finished last time.

1. tourdesb - 41 last time --> 0 this time (not ranked)
2. weirdboy - 29 last time --> 17 this time (#8 rank)
3. themagician - 16 last time --> 0 this time (not ranked)
4. Melvelet - 13 last time --> 5 this time (#27 rank)
5. ororama - 12 last time --> 4 this time (#30 rank)
6. Timec - 8 last time --> 0 this time (not ranked)
6. albajos - 8 last time --> 8 this time (#19 rank)
8. Fergenaprido - 7 last time --> 9 this time (#17 rank)
9. 3eyes - 6 last time --> 1 this time (#38 rank)
9. Lonewolf2003 - 6 last time --> 6 this time (#25 rank)
11. cinephage - 4 last time --> 2 this time (#32 rank)
12. Knaldskalle - 3 last time --> 9 this time (#17 rank)
12. maxwelldeux - 3 last time --> 26 this time (#6 rank)

Final fun fact: with 83 watches, zuma more than doubled the amount of viewings that tourdesb won with last year. :o

Please check that your rankings and viewings are correctly stated in the OP. I can still make adjustments for miscount errors (though I likely won't have the spare time to redo these stats).

I actually watched a few more, but I've been sick for the past few days and forgot to update my stats.

I understand I'm posting too late for this to be taken in consideration, especially with all the groovy stats you provided, Sol.

Still, I'd rather keep track of my challenges watches, even though I'm too slow in my recording them...

03. Juventude Em Marcha, by Pedro Costa (2006) 5/10

A very demanding picture, where attention is required, still, the films holds a great deal of poetry...

01. Kiru, by Kihachi Okamoto (1968) 8/10
02. Edvard Munch, by Peter Watkins (1974) 9/10
