And now I've seen Koreeda's "After Life." One more director down. I didn't particularly enjoy this and, given that the other Koreeda premises I read didn't interest me nearly as much as this one, I'm not too encouraged to dig further into his catalog.

August Challenge: Image
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

My goals for 2020:

1. Platinum on They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? -215 to go
2. Bronze on Yle News’ Best Finnish Films of All Time - 19 to go
3. All movies on a list with 50 films from 50 countries, chosen by my friend and myself to watch and discuss during the year in pubs -49 to go
+ Watch all unseen movies on 10+ official lists again - 15 to go
1. Platinum on They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? - 64 to go. Watched 45 new films in June's TSPDT challenge. The challenge was surprisingly inspiring for me. Much ahead of schedule now, but that's very good, because I will be very busy at work next Fall.
2. Bronze on Yle News’ Best Finnish Films of All Time - Done!
3. All movies on a list with 50 films from 50 countries, chosen by my friend an myself to watch and discuss during the year in pubs - 25 to go. Just on schedule. Behind on pubs, though, as you'd suspect.
+ Watch all unseen movies on 10+ official lists again - 14 to go. Little progress. I'll do this as a bonus when/if I complete my numbered goals on time.

1. Watch at least 366 features
2. Reach platinum on TSPDT by March (69 to go)
3. From April, each month watch at least 25 films in a single challenge
4. Make it to the cinema at least 20 times
5. Watch all movies on 10+ lists (89 to go)
After June:
1. Ahead of target (475 features in 182 days) - am updating target to be 732 features to make it interesting (most I've done in a year is 560ish).
2. Completed TSPDT on the 19th March with Shoah. Delighted and proud to complete a really enriching experience.
3. Done it for 7 challenges (TSPDT, 1960s, Comedy, Western, 1950s, Doubling the Canon List and Women Directors).
4. I've been 9 times but not the year for this challenge! I won't be going to the cinema again in 2020. I want to replace it with a goal related to recent releases - will ponder.
5. Down from 59 to 13.

Since I didn't reach my goals from 2019, I'll try and pursue them in 2020.

1 - Reach gold on the They shoot zombies, don't they ? list (158 films to watch)

2 - get bronze on the <400 list : 80 movies to check.

3 - Get 6 more bronze medals (1910, Sundance Film Festival - Grand Jury Prize, Goya Awards, Belgian Film Awards, Silent but not forgotten, Spaghetti western)

4 - Finish iCM Forum's Favourite French Films list : https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icm+ ... htysparks/ (21 films to watch)
SpoilerShow
1 - 127 films to check, 31 checks since january... The update was certainly a big help...

2 - 68 more films to watch. 8 checks since last time, that's good.

3 - Get 6 3 more bronze medals (1910, Sundance Film Festival - Grand Jury Prize, Goya Awards, Belgian Film Awards, Silent but not forgotten, Spaghetti western) Hey, I did good with this one. :banana:

4 - Still 19 to watch. Slow progress here as well, but progress still.
1 - 124 films to watch...

2 - 67 more films to watch

3 - Get 6 3 more bronze medals (1910, Sundance Film Festival - Grand Jury Prize, Goya Awards, Belgian Film Awards, Silent but not forgotten, Spaghetti western)

4 - 19 films to watch... I didn't work on that one this month, but I'll try and catch up in July

Update through April:

1. Complete my project of watching a film from each year from 1919-2020 (currently on 1980, 40 films to go)
2. Bronze on TSPDT (39 films to go)
3. Rank in top 8,000 on every list (8 lists to go)
Update as of the end of June:

1. Complete my project of watching a film from each year from 1919-2020 (currently on 2003, 17 films to go)
2. Bronze on TSPDT (22 films to go)
3. Rank in top 8,000 on every list (7 lists to go)

I have been really focused on #1, which is helping a lot with #2. I'm hoping I can have this project finished by the end of July, but we'll see. I might be in the position this year where I'll actually need to come up with some bonus goals because I'm doing so well on the ones I set at the beginning of the year!

I've finally bottomed things out, with just a handful of IMDb lists left to complete the goal. Here's a breakdown of my progress, showing the number of checks needed at the beginning of the year, last month and today, with completed lists in bold, backslides in red and gains in green:

The push for Top 200 on every official listShow
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die: 11-->0-->0

Total Sci-Fi's The 100 Greatest Sci-Fi Movies: 2-->0-->0
TSPDT's 1,000 Greatest Films: 17-->0-->0

And the breakdown so far:

Goal: Top 200 on every official list
Films left at start of year: 66
Target pace to meet goal: 5.5 checks/month
Checks left last month: 10
Checks left currently: 6
Checks left at this point in 2019/2018/2017/2016/2015: 25/44/78/43/20
Current pace: 10.0 checks/month
Top 200 goals completed this month: 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, A.V. Club's The Best Movies of the 2010s, BBC's The 21st Century's 100 Greatest Films, Empire's The 100 Best Films of World Cinema, FOK!'s Film Top 250, IMDb's 1950s Top 50, IMDb's Top 250, and Reddit Top 250
Lists that have (re)appeared this month: 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, IMDb's Animation Top 50, and IMDb's War Top 50
Worst ranking this month: IMDb's Biography Top 50 (#253)
Best goal-related ranks: IMDb's Shorts Top 50, IMDb's Thrillers Top 50, Taschen's 100 All-Time Favorite Movies (#1) and IMDb's Drama Top 50 (#67)
Median ranking on all lists: #66 (BFI's 100 Science Fiction Films and TSPDT's 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films) and #67 (UNESCO's Memory of the World and MDb's Drama Top 50)
Overall Ranking: 18-->16-->16

So just six checks to go, most of which I'm holding out for until nearer the end of the year in case the IMDb lists fluctuate in the meantime, obviating the need to see them. A few exceptions: Ford v Ferrari, which I'll be seeing in the next few days, and Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, which I"ll watch sometime later this summer after I finish the TV series. That'll take me down to three checks (two on the IMDb 1920s list and one on the IMDb War list), one of which will hopefully be covered by 1917, and the other two, well, we'll see by December.

2016 goals finished: 1 - 25 films (1990)
Specific directors seen: 2 - Sam Wood, Frank Lloyd

I don't remember what my Tin Awards goal was, or maybe I changed the number since I first set it. I have 33 lists, not 30 as my goal in my spreadsheet. :shrug:

Again, great progress overall, but not on many of the specific goals. Long films was again the best area of improvement, though I also finally made some significant progress on the 20+ list films. Surprised I made no progress on my watchlists, though. This coming quarter I have less on my plate workwise, and there are fewer games/polls on here that I intend to focus on, so I can select more films to watch that fit into these goals.

Having come back to the joys of cinema I might as well define goals for the second half of 2020.

1. TSPDT: See 100 movies, 730 -> 830
currently: 779 = 49/100 (with almost a year between check 730 and 731 :blink: )
2. ICM Forum's 500 <400: See 30 movies (might upgrade this one)
6/30 (after 1.5 years of no check)
3. TBD - Something going-to-cinema related

And now I've seen "Stranger by the Lake" and "Once Upon a Time in Anatolia" (both via Kanopy), so this knocks off Nuri Bilge Ceylan (finally!) and Alain Guiraudie. I liked "Anatolia" better.

Jonas Mekas (Diaries, Notes and Sketches)
Manoel de Oliveira (Abraham's Valley)
Margarethe von Trotta (Die Bleierne Zeit)*
Nanni Moretti (Caro Diario)

*I saw "The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum," which she CO-directed, but I'm sure she was playing second banana to Schlöndorff...half-credit, at best.

Once Upon A Time in Anatolia is such a beautiful movie, I'm surprised it isn't more popular here.

Saw Aleksey German's "My Friend Ivan Lapshin" a night ago....really liked that one a lot. The story wasn't much, but incredible lighting and cinematography.

July 10 edit: And now I've seen Miguel Gomes' "Tabu" and Margarethe Von Trotta's "Sisters or the Balance of Happiness" too. This quest has been a refreshing change from laboring over my watchlist and Whatever's in the DVR. Just 32 names left now?

July 11 edit: And now "Awaara" too, so I can delete Raj Kapoor.

July 12 edit: Down goes "Yellow Earth" and Kaige Chen. And I just endured "Police Story." If that is Jackie Chan's best film, I don't mind skipping the rest.

July 18 edit: Didn't get around to mentioning that I saw "Os Fuzis" a few nights ago. So I can cross off Ruy Guerra too. Johnnie To probably deserves to be added to this list too, but he doesn't satisfy the criteria I'm using.

What I want to see before ... ICM 1000 favourite movies. 418 movies to watch, will likely expand it. Should be doable if i start watching 2 films a day, starting in august. This month, i will move to a different place, so i stay at 1 film a day for now.

Likely going to skip all challenges until march 2020, and maybe start participating in march 2020 in challenges and more lists. Starting in march / april 2020, i want to see more classic cinema, tv-series (i lag behind on both) and work on some lists. The lists that interest me are the Korean / Asian lists, TSPDT 21st century list (although i'll work on it unconsciously), TSZDT, Cinema Tropical 2000-2009 and 2010-2019 lists and maybe some more.

These are the challenges for 2021, if they are organized in months that "fit", not january, february, march and june, i'll participate in Korean Peninsula, Japan, South America, Central America and maybe France/Benelux/Central Asia, but they have to "fit" in, and I also want to participate in the 2021 horror challenge.

My goals for 2020:

1. Platinum on They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? -215 to go
2. Bronze on Yle News’ Best Finnish Films of All Time - 19 to go
3. All movies on a list with 50 films from 50 countries, chosen by my friend and myself to watch and discuss during the year in pubs -49 to go
+ Watch all unseen movies on 10+ official lists again - 15 to go
1. Platinum on They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? - 50 to go. Slow progress in July (only 14 movies), but still well ahead of schedule. Also, La Commune (2000) and Hitler - ein Film aus Deutschland (1977) felt more than just one movie each, even though I enjoyed them both very much. :)
2. Bronze on Yle News’ Best Finnish Films of All Time - Done!
3. All movies on a list with 50 films from 50 countries, chosen by my friend an myself to watch and discuss during the year in pubs - 24 to go. Small progress but still quite well on schedule.
+ Watch all unseen movies on 10+ official lists again - 16 to go. Going backwards. But no worries, I'll do this as a bonus when/if I complete my numbered goals on time.

Having come back to the joys of cinema I might as well define goals for the second half of 2020.

1. TSPDT: See 100 movies, 730 -> 830
currently: 779 = 49/100 (with almost a year between check 730 and 731 :blink: )
2. ICM Forum's 500 <400: See 30 movies (might upgrade this one)
6/30 (after 1.5 years of no check)
3. TBD - Something going-to-cinema related
1. TSPDT: 779->797, 33 to go. It was a good month for that so I can afford an august that focusses on <400 movies so...
2. 500<400: 5->11 I'll upgrade the goal to 75

Update as of the end of June:

1. Complete my project of watching a film from each year from 1919-2020 (currently on 2003, 17 films to go)
2. Bronze on TSPDT (22 films to go)
3. Rank in top 8,000 on every list (7 lists to go)

I have been really focused on #1, which is helping a lot with #2. I'm hoping I can have this project finished by the end of July, but we'll see. I might be in the position this year where I'll actually need to come up with some bonus goals because I'm doing so well on the ones I set at the beginning of the year!
Update for the end of July:

1. Complete my project of watching a film from each year from 1919-2020 (DONE!)
2. Bronze on TSPDT top 1001 (16 films to go)
3. Rank in top 8,000 on every list (6 lists to go)

My biggest goal for the year is COMPLETE! I wrapped up this challenge a few days ago, and it feels really great to have that over and done with.

#2 should be pretty easy. I'm guessing I'm going to knock that out by the end of this month. I have a mini-goal to watch all of the top 100 of the TSPDT list, which is 14 more, so that should get me most of the way there.

#3 might take a little longer than I thought, because one of the lists is TSZDT. I've seen 133/1000, good for #9169 on the list. Horror is not my favorite genre, and I'm worried I'm going to have to watch 30 or 40 movies to bring my rank below 8000. We shall see!

Currently, one needs 144 checks to get below #8000.
143 checks gets you rank #8023, 144 checks gets you rank #7919. So even with ranks ever moving, you probably only need to watch 11 or 12 films from the TSZDT list this year to meet your goal.

Oh that isn't nearly as bad as I feared. Should be very doable then, thank you for the info!

I thought things were pretty much under control with the last update, but what a difference a month makes! Here's a breakdown of my progress, showing the number of checks needed at the beginning of the year, last month and today, with completed lists in bold, backslides in red and gains in green:

And the breakdown so far:

Goal: Top 200 on every official list
Films left at start of year: 66
Target pace to meet goal: 5.5 checks/month
Checks left last month: 6
Checks left currently: 17
Checks left at this point in 2019/2018/2017/2016/2015: 9/27/61/27/9
Current pace: 7.0 checks/month
Top 200 goals completed this month: None
Lists that have (re)appeared this month: Annecy Festival's 100 Films for a Century of Animation, Empire Russia's 100 Best Russian Films: Readers' Choice, IMDb's 1950s Top 50, and TSPDT's 1,000 Greatest Films
Worst ranking this month: Empire Russia's 100 Best Russian Films: Readers' Choice (#269)
Best goal-related ranks: IMDb's Shorts Top 50, IMDb's Thrillers Top 50, Taschen's 100 All-Time Favorite Movies (#1) and IMDb's Drama Top 50 (#69)
Median ranking on all lists: #65 (BFI's 100 Documentary Films, 101 War Movies You Must See Before You Die, IMDb's Musical Top 50, and Harvard's Suggested Film Viewing: Non-Fiction Films) and #66 (The Guardian's 1000 Films to See Before You Die)
Overall Ranking: 18-->16-->16

I was in out of province all last week and while I was gone things fell apart a bit, with 12 new goal-related checks suddenly appearing, most from the new Russian list (7) and TSPDT (3). Nothing too concerning, I'll plug away at these in August to restore some order and we'll see where we are in September.

My main goal for 2020 is to watch more mini-series. I've watched 10 so far (5 Asian, 5 non-Asian). I didn't have a specific number in mind, but I'll pick a number now. I'd like to watch at least 5 more mini-series, OR at least 1 longer series, by the end of the year.

Not really one for film goals because I'm never able to fulfill them, so here are a couple of very modest ones. Though with twelve films seen over June and July it may still pose a challenge. :D

01. Finish the remaining Ingmar Bergman films available in HD (currently at Vargtimmen [1968])
Been "stuck" at Hour of the Wolf for a couple of months now, but I want to watch it after dark, and it still doesn't really get dark until 10 PM over here these days.

02. Finish the remaining Spike Lee feature films available in HD (currently at Girl 6 [1996])
Started rewatching most of his films after I saw the 4K remaster of Do the Right Thing. Turns out that half of Letterboxd is doing the same, but instead because of the George Floyd aftermath.

03. Reach 800/1000 on Box Office Mojo's All Time Worldwide Box Office list (currently 776/1000)
Been working on this for years. Sometimes I have a nice sprint but then I tire myself and don't watch another one for months.
