Poll: Lists that should be official: nominations due April 29


There’s also the Giallo Scrapbook but I don’t know which list is better.

Giallo Scrapbook is better than the So Deadly, So Perverse lists, as it’s shorter and more selective of the best of the genre. Almost everything on Giallo Scrapbook seems to be on So Deadly So Perverse, although it does miss out the key films “Blow-Up” and “Short Night of Glass Dolls” (these are presumably excluded as they are only Italian co-productions with other countries).


New offical checks stats for my nominated lists:

Total Film 50 Most Unintentionally Hilarious Movies: 26 new checks (52% of the list)
101 Action Movies You Must See Before You Die: 7 new checks (7% of the list), although perhaps more relevantly only 34% of those existing checks are from overlaps with our existing Action A-Z list.
Asia Shock: Horror and Dark Cinema from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Thailand: 27 new checks (45% of the list)


New Official Checks stats for my nominated list:


249 would be new checks, which works out to 76% of the list


I have the So Deadly, So Perverse books. The reason they’re excluded is not that they’re co-productions, but that they don’t qualify as gialli according to the author’s criteria. Blow-Up’s exclusion is because the mystery is entirely secondary to the movie and Short Night of Glass Dolls is categorized as “disturbing psychological horror.” Both are listed in a chapter called “Almost, but not quite: Borderline Gialli.”

I can perhaps accept excluding Blow-Up (it really isn’t focused on solving the mystery), but Short Night of Glass Dolls is a giallo to me.

Do I even need to explain this to a fellow mod? Post the required info as well.

I thought just me nominating it was sufficient :wink:


Every Film that has won an Oscar
Golden Globe Best Picture Nominees

Both are well known enough,and their titles are very self explanatory, so, sorry for not posting the proper format.


@ ChrisReynolds, MNA, 3rd: I added your nominations.
@72allinncallme: Ok, I removed the Norwegian list (but it can still be nominated by someone else, if they want).
@bobbybrown: Thanks for the info.

It’ll probably be added before we begin the voting stage.

@mathiasa: Midnight Movies was auto-nominated so you can nominate something else

@Minkin: I just removed Artificial Eye from the list of nominations.

I need to sleep so I’ll add more nominations tomorrow.


Thanks but I can’t see one of the most important addition to broaden and evolve ICM, just look at the numbers again if you don’t believe me, not mentioning the overall quality of the directors and movies on it https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/vinegar+syndrome/flavo5000/


On the subject of DVD labels, I’m not sure if I agree with Artificial Eye being removed as an option. Like Criterion, they specialise in high quality cinema and acclaimed directors, and I would consider them to be much on the same level as Masters of Cinema - which is of course also official.

How about Second Run and BFI Flipside? They both specialise in rare and acclaimed films and both labels have a number of gems in their catalogues.

I was also thinking that a list of Twilight Time Blu-ray releases could be interesting.

However, if everyone is against DVD labels being made Official, I guess I will scour elsewhere before submitting my final two nominations.


What ICM doesn’t need to evolve after 9 years is yet another official list (Artificial Eye) with mostly random drama and arthouse movies just like Criterion, MoC and Second Run of very varying quality to say the least.


It doesn’t matter if it’s everyone or not. This point isn’t decided by a poll.
Don’t bother nominating Twilight Time Bluray.


Dansk Spillefilm Top 100
122 films. Chronological.
List by the Danish Film Institute. Because we still don’t have an official Danish list that is not an award list. I’m also open for other suggestions. @BareLolk @Nuked, you might have other suggestions?

Susan Sontag’s 50 Favourite Films
50 films. No particular order. I think it’s a good, concentrated curation.


What kind of list is this? The iCM-page quotes a wikipedia description of the production company, but doesn’t explain what actually is in this list. Is it a list of movies produced by that company? If so, not allowed.


International Film Festival Rotterdam - Tiger Award:


‘‘The IFFR is the biggest film festival of the Netherlands, founded in 1972. The Tiger Awards form the centerpiece of the festival and are awarded to three debut or sophomore feature films every year since 1995. In 2016 the competition changed. The number of films in competition was decreased to 8 and 2 different awards were now given: one Tiger Award and one special Jury Award for ‘exceptional artistic achievement’.’’

Second Run:


‘‘Second Run are a UK-based DVD company specialising in the release of important and award-winning films from all around the world. Each Second Run film is our personal selection reflecting significant films which we have seen and love and care about, and which we believe should be seen by others for their quality and importance.’’

Thai Film Archive:

‘‘Thailand’s Culture Ministry and the Thai Film Archive have started a registry of national heritage films. The initial 25 titles go back as far as the beginning of film history up to the accomplishments of today and range from shorts to features. It includes newsreels, travelogue, documentaries, experimental films and fictional features.’’

In the meantime they have already compiled a list of 100 titles. With the oldest one from 1897.


‘‘Second Run are a UK-based DVD company specialising in the release of important and award-winning films from all around the world. Each Second Run film is our personal selection reflecting significant films which we have seen and love and care about, and which we believe should be seen by others for their quality and importance.’’

As mentioned above, I was thinking of nominating Second Run myself, so thanks for jumping in and doing so. I’ll definitely be voting for this list to go Official – even in the midst of the ongoing DVD releases debate saga at the moment.

The 30 Best Music Videos Ever: Poll Results, 2011, https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+30+best+music+videos+ever+poll+results/mathiasa/, 30, 1. per decade, 2. rank, there has been a lot of demand for more diversity. To achieve true diversity, we should adapt a broader definition of what constitutes film. There are so far no official lists for genre’s that usually are not seen as movies. This music video list nomination is an attempt to change this. The list manages two goals: it appeals to mainstream users while filling a niche and greatly adding to icm’s diversity. It was compiled by Billboard.


Bulgarian movies:
Because there isn’t anything about bulgarian cinema.


What is this? There is no description, no source-link. Is this just a personal list of Bulgarian movies? If so, not allowed.
