This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
n this 2005 book, author Alonso Duralde (arts and entertainment editor of The Advocate, the national gay and lesbian newsmagazine) presents a list of films every gay man should watch before considering his cultural education complete!

"Pinky Violence" refers to a genre of Japanese action cinema which began in the late 1960's and continued through the mid 1970's. Typically featuring a young female protagonist, these films often told stories of revenge or gangland violence.
Despite the word "pinky", these films were not usually softcore (although a couple of titles toe the line). While certainly characterized by considerable nudity as a means of luring in a waning cinema audience, sex scenes were limited, typically in furtherance of the plot, and extremely mild in comparison to the "Roman Porno" line being produced at Nikkatsu. Instead, the focus is on wild, outrageous action, colorful direction and a spirit of youthful energy.
The genre primarily refers to a line of films released by Toei (one of Japan's major studios), however two series from rival series mirror the sensibilities enough that they are often included: Toho's "Rica" series, and Nikkatsu's "Stray Cat Rock" films. This list is based on the list suggested by KamuiX in his article "The World of Pinky Violence, An Intro." It is grouped by series, rather than chronology, with stand-alone films appearing at the bottom of the list.
IMDB's coverage of Japanese films is not always great. The following films should be on this list, but lack an imdb entry:
Zubekô banchô: Tôkyô nagaremono (AKA Delinquent Girl Boss 2)
Terrifying Girls' High School 4: Animal Courage
All three films in "Joshi Gakuen" series
Hell's Angels: Crimson Roar
The Ariel is the Mexican Academy of Film Award. It has been awarded annually since 1947. The award recognizes excellence in motion picture making, such as acting, directing and screenwriting in Mexican cinema. It is considered the most prestigious award in the Mexican movie industry. The name "Ariel" was inspired by a series of short writings called El Ariel by Uruguayan writer José Enrique Rodó that inspired generations of young Latin Americans in the first decades of the 20th century.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts' Best British Film Award, originally given from 1948 to 1968. In 1993, an award for Best British Film was restored with the creation of the Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film, named after the important British film director.
Cinema Tropical, the leading presenter of Latin American cinema in the U.S., has compiled a list of the Top Ten Latin American Films of the Decade (2010-2019), based on a poll of 97 international film festival and cinemathèque programmers.
In total, 229 films representing 17 Latin American countries were nominated for the distinction of being Best of the Decade, demonstrating the high quality and diversity of films from the region.
Films included on Criterion collection titles in addition to the main feature.
These are both long and short films, however the only requirement is that they are not a traditional 'extra' about the film, like a making of film or an interview. They are instead an additional film, often by that director, that could easily stand alone (if a full feature) or in a compilation (if a short film).
Note: this does not include individual episodes of portmanteau films
Every five years or so the film fans at Criterionforum.org spend half a year discussing the films of a certain decade - viewing and reviewing classics, championing favorites, and highlighting overlooked/underrated films. At the end of the discussion period they each submit lists of their fifty favorite films from the decade, and those lists are then compiled into a top 100, as well as a list of "also-rans" (the films which received more than one vote, but not enough to make the top 100.) This list includes both the top 100 and the "also-rans."
These are the results of the poll conducted from July 2009-January 2010.

"I think that a film should have a good story, a clear story, and it should have, if possible, something which is probably the most difficult thing - it should have a little bit of magic...Magic being untouchable and very difficult to cast, you can't deal with it at all. You can only try to prepare some nests, hoping that a little bit of magic will slide into them."
