I have none yet... I even don't have gold or silver awards, though i'm two checks away from my first silver on the 2010's list...

I have 12 bronze awards:
A.V. Club - Best of the 2000's (got that last week)
Reddit top 250
1990's
Fok! top 250

been fighting it out with that film noir award since i joined icm. platinum, gold, platinum, gold. when i saw they'd added a new film this week i watched it for scfz 1951 poll. wyler's detective story. i've never been a big fan of kirk douglas but i didn't think i could dislike a wyler film this much

back to the two plats i had when i joined: film noir and 1930s. they keep robbing me of that 1940s award too. tbh i'm not really focussed on these but i enjoy getting a bronze in a new list, currently 366 weird movies. probs go for 1910s next

I love Kirk and increasingly admire Wyler, but noir was not his forte - not a fan of this film or the '55 Desperate Hours.

You're gonna take the rap and play along. You're gonna make every exact move I tell you. If you don't, I'll kill you. And I'll promise you one thing: it won't be quick. I'll break you first. You won't be able to answer a telephone or open a door without thinking, 'This is it.' And it when it comes, it still won't be quick. And it won't be pretty. You can take your choice.

I'd probably pick Paths of Glory and Champion for Kirk's best performances. Only problem with Out of the Past is that he's competing with Mitchum, and nobody can really compete with Mitchum.

It was the bottom of the barrel, and I was scraping it.

Maybe I'll finally watch Against All Odds for Noirvember this year. Somehow I doubt it will measure up.

But the average is weighed. That's why Oogieloves is in the bottom 100, and not top 250. They do have ways to remove unserious votes

The top 1000 voters seem to do their best to bring the rating down. 15 out of 38 top 1000 voters have rated it 1/10. That's ridiculously low for a meh-movie. Vote stuffing goes both ways.

I had a goal of finally getting platinum in Horror, and the last film I needed to watch was Interview with the Vampire.

I was all excited to logon to ICM to check the final film in the list and see that "Unchecked" number go to Zero. I make my way to the list and it has been updated and Interview with the Vampire has been knocked out of the list and replaced with all films I have already seen.

One of the few lists I have actively worked on is LoveHKFilm.com's The Best Hong Kong Films Ever.

Watched The Case of the Cold Fish tonight, that makes 203 films and platinum. I'm not the first to complete the list, but the two people that preceded me came out of nowhere. Not that it matters much, just happy to have finally completed the list. Not sure if it was truly worth it (it didn't yield any new favorites), but at least I can move on to different Chinese lists.

Thanks! It's only the second one I got by working on a specific list though (the other one was the Paste Anime list), in the 8 years I've been part of ICM. Just give me another 200 years and I'll start getting places B)

I’ll only include the ones I’ve been actively working on.

101 War MYMSBYD - Lacombe Lucien (1974)
Dunno why I watched that movie last. Watched the ones I had not seen allready (ca 50) during the last War challenge.

Roger Ebert: the great movies - Un dimanche à la campagne (1984)
Forgettable movie, great list!

iCM Forum's 500<400 - Le vieux fusil (1975)
Love that list :wub:

Quentin Tarantino's Coolest Movies of All Time - Maniac Cop 2 (1990)
Probably the worst list that I have platinum on.

Annecy Festival's 100 Films for a Century of Animation - La traversée de l'Atlantique à la rame (1978)
Ended the list with a real gem!

1001 MYMSBYD - Jezebel (1938)
I can die.

Empire 500 - Soy Cuba (1964)
That list is not as bad as people say it is :)

I have 53 platinums, but, none of those lists are among them. (A ton of IMDb). Although I'm close on all of them except for 500<400.
