iCM Forum's Favourite Films on 0 Official Lists - Nominations [2022 edition] [LAST CALL]

iCM Forum's Favourite Films on Zero Official Lists

Image


It's time to showcase your favourite underappreciated gems!

The rules
· Films, mini-series, episodes from tv anthology series are all allowed
· Films that have separate pages for the full film(s) and for the individual films and where one of those is official, are not eligible (i.e. Cremaster Cycle, Dog Star Man, Histoire(s) du cinéma, etc.)
· Films that become permanently official between now and the deadline are NOT eligible (i.e. through new list adoption, being added to Criterion or TSPDT Noir list, etc.)
· List can be on imdb or icm
· Fully ranked, partially ranked, or unranked lists only (will be considered ranked unless specified); group-ranked lists will not be allowed
· Half-life will again be 50, unless the submitted lists drop drastically in size
· Final list will again be 250, unless the number of participants drops drastically
· Films that switch between official and unofficial each week because of imdb list updates are eligible
· Films from 2021 & 2022 are not eligible, just like how we do it for the 500<400 list.

IMPORTANT: Due to a bug on icm, films that recently became unofficial are still listed as being on 1 official list. I'll keep a list of those films in the second post, but they are eligible, unless they rejoin an official list before the end of the month. Using Tim's lists below will likely be more effective than sorting your checks this time around.

Deadline for submissions
Sunday, July 31st, midnight PST.

Why participate?
· It's an official poll, and everyone loves official things here :P
· It's a chance to showcase films that you think should become official
· It's going to be so unpredictable, so the entertainment value should be high :D (even though we've run this poll twice before, many films have become official in the meantime, so it's still somewhat unpredictable, especially in the lower regions)

All of your checks sorted by # Official Toplists and then sorted alphabetically - you'll have to go to the first page of 0 official checks to see your list.
Previous Editions
To help you build your list (by removing currently official checks), Tim2460 is your best friend; he updates these lists monthly, so little should change before the deadline:
Films on 3+ Official lists
Films on 2 Official lists
Films on 1 Official list p1
Films on 1 Official list p2

42 Participants

I guess if you have the iCM export, you know how to work with it to get a list on IMDb or LB.

Like on the previous two editions I will require assistance again with my list as I am not on iCM. The way it was done both times was that I would send somebody an Excel spreadsheet of an IMDb list with all the titles I'd potentially want to nominate, and then they would send me back a file that only included all the titles that were eligible for the poll. Would somebody be prepared to help me out in this manner again?

Here's my nominations as of 2015: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/0off/torgo/
.. have yet to weed out the nearly 50 titles which have become official since then :cheers: , add the tiny lot I've seen in the meantime (mind you, I've been inactive for a couple of years), reorder it and be happy. Until then and in case I forget to login for the rest of the month or lose my internet access forever, this is the raw basis.

I will try and update it, for the moment, I kept my previous one, but out of the 500 unofficial titles at the time, 24 made it to an official list, which leaves me with 476 babies... Maybe I'll add a few more, but since I felt 500 was too much, I could leave things as they are...

btw, as this is your only question mark here - this is a 100% sports movie according to Wikipedia and countless sport lists where it's featured; how and why someone on IMDb decided to get rid off the genre tag and making it leave our IMDb Sports Top 50 stays a huge... miracle.

Oh, I didn't notice that the sport genre tag had been removed. I see it's back on imdb now, but it's got a 7.4 rating and the 50th film on the sports list has a 7.5, so if it fell off the sports list it was due to the rating not the genre.

My top 250 no official checks movies excluding 2021-22, all of these are a subset of films from my all top 1000 list and ranked.

https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/fave ... iandujaoo/

Note to Ferg, my list includes Ek Din Achanak, which is in your list of films erroneously recorded as being in 1 official list.

@Fergenaprido,

I've noticed that one of my choices, Schaste Moe, is said to have one check, but it is at the same time unattributed, so I'm not sure whether it is eligible or not

Aw man that bug is seriously annoying.
Schaste Moe is a TSP 21st dropoff, as it looks, and must have been off gone already for a while (we already voted it as one of our favorite unofficial films in 2020).
Should be save to vote for

[edit]I think it left 500<400 the same year (or after) :sweat:
