    FOK! Schaduw Top 250

    Favs/dislikes: 40:2. Companion list to the official FOK! Top 250. This list is compiled from a subset of the lists submitted to the yearly election for the FOK! Film Top 100. The list favors older movies and is compiled as a stimulus to watch these over the next big Hollywood thing. All previous versions of the list since 2003 are available to paying users by selecting the previous version button. The following legends tells you which version is from which year. 2003 : 2011-12-27 23:02:26 2004 : 2011-12-31 16:29:33 2005 : 2011-12-31 16:30:19 2006 : 2011-12-31 16:30:43 2007 : 2011-12-31 16:30:54 2008 : 2011-12-31 16:31:06 2009 : 2011-12-31 16:31:16 2010 : 2011-12-31 16:31:25 2011 : 2011-12-31 16:31:34 2012 : 2012-08-24 22:46:17

    A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers

    Favs/dislikes: 33:1. From Lately I’ve become more and more frustrated with the various “best ever” lists that have been released because they rarely feature films by women, or if they do it’s usually one or two films. I think this is more a reflection of those who are polled for these kinds of lists, as well as a compounding of history on itself. For so long films by men have made up the bulk of the film canon and I think people are afraid to add new films to these revered lists. I also think many people haven’t seen very many films by women, or if they have it’s always the same handful of films. In an attempt to create a better, more inclusive list of great films by women, I polled over 500 critics, filmmakers, bloggers, historians, professors and casual film viewers, asking them to tell me what films directed (or co-directed) by women are essential viewing. Some people only responded with as little as five votes, others submitted hundreds of films. In the end, I received over 7,000 votes for 1,100+ different films. After tallying up this data, with ties factored in, I then had a list of 103 essential films directed by women. While this list is in no way the end all and be all of female filmmakers, it does include films from multiple countries, filmmakers of all ages, films from all kinds of genres and spans 9 decades. Also, I would like to point out that although the earliest film on this list is from 1935, there were several filmmakers from the silent era who were women (and whose films were in the initial 1,100+ list), including Alice Guy-Blaché, Lois Weber and others. This list should be looked at as a springboard, a way to get your feet wet with the most beloved films made by women. There are lots of resources to find even more great films by women. and are two such invaluable places to start learning more about the thousands of women who have been making films since the beginning of cinema.

    Favs/dislikes: 23:0. At the FOK! board we have a knock-out tournament for each year. These are the winners of these tournaments. The contestants of the tournaments since 2001 are films released in The Netherlands in that calendar year. For the older tournaments movies classified on IMDb-year. For the 1986 tournament both Platoon and Aliens won. Note that not all years have been held. We are still in progress.

Nicotine-stained tales of sexual misadventure unfold in beds all over the city, while gangsters commit crimes and cartoon rats cook up a storm.

Be they Nouvelle Vague masterpieces or populist comedies, the capital is always in the starring role... -Time Out Paris This list is organized chronologically.
  6. New York Movies:  The 100 Best Films Set in New York's icon

    New York Movies: The 100 Best Films Set in New York

    Favs/dislikes: 13:0. Paradise and prison, bustling metropolis and the loneliest place on earth: New York City has a cinematic identity that infuses all walks of life. Even as we write our own narratives in this most famous of locations, we walk alongside fictional characters (and sometimes real ones, too, if we’re lucky). In selecting the 100 most essential New York movies, we kept the city’s boldness in mind. TONY Film staffers David Fear, Joshua Rothkopf and Keith Uhlich teamed up with movie experts Stephen Garrett and Alison Willmore to gather titles from all genres and eras—the widely known and the obscure—in pursuit of a complete picture of NYC on film. Our only parameter: The movie had to be set in New York City, not Metropolis (sorry, Superman fans), Oz (ditto, you Wiz diehards), nor anywhere else. Dive in, jostle politely, find your seat or ride standing: Please tell us what we’ve missed. It’s a big town. —Joshua Rothkopf, senior Film writer at Time Out New York List published on July 3rd 2012

    Empire: The 50 Best Films Of 2014

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. The votes are in, the heated debate has finally subsided and the hanging chads have all been recycled, which means Empire's 50 Best Films Of 2014 - those films with UK releases between January 1 and December 26 - has arrived. Movie critiquing is a subjective business so each and every member of the Empireverse was asked to submit a list of their favourite films release in the UK in 2014, and our mathematicians bunged all the results into a science oven and, presto, from the charred embers emerged over four dozen terrific slices of motion-picture magic, including 12 features from debut filmmakers. Now all you have to do is tell us what we've missed in the usual place.

    Fandor 100 Essential Chinese Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. Among the many recent additions to the Fandor catalog, I am most excited by several classic Chinese films that I consider to be among the very best to have ever been made in that language: The Big Road, Street Angel (a film I love so dearly that I modeled my wedding photos after some of its iconic shots), Crossroads, Spring in a Small Town, to name a few. The sight of these titles got me thinking: what are the essential movies that anyone curious about Chinese cinema needs to see? The following video of 50 essential Chinese language films – and expanded list of 100 essential films found further below – is my attempt at an answer.

    The Online Film Community's Top 100 Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. When AFI released their list of the Top 100 Movies of All Time, many people were up in arms over the selections. Over 50 members of the Online Film Journalist Community decided to join together and create a list of their own. A list that might better reflect the views of everyone else who didn’t agree with the AFI list. Sure, you can’t really compare AFI’s list with the Film Community’s Top 100 because we allowed the inclusion of foreign films.

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Listing them in any meaningful order would be impossible. But the criteria should certainly include longevity beyond the initial impact, achievement in making them and, above all, enjoyment and/or appreciation watching them. Except for my No 1, which has to be the Lord of the Rings, these films are in alphabetical order. (Graham Young)

    Paste's 100 Greatest War Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. War. What is it good for? Well, if nothing else, then a tidy template for cinema: conflict, clear protagonists and antagonists, heightened emotions, and a generally unpredictable, lawless atmosphere which—as per the western—has since the dawn of cinema offered an elastic dramatic environment in which filmmakers can explore men at both their best and worst. And make no mistake, the war movie is almost always about men. It’s the most masculine of genres, the fact that armies have throughout history often been almost exclusively male seeing to it that men almost always dominate these things. It’s a genre that emphasizes action and existential angst. It’s also a malleable genre, and one that could broadly include all manner of films that we ultimately ruled out of the running in this list. With this top 100, we’ve made the decision to include only movies whose wars are based on historical conflicts, so none of the likes of Edge of Tomorrow or Starship Troopers. We’ve picked films that deal with soldiers, soldiering and warfare directly, meaning wartime movies set primarily away from conflict, often told largely or exclusively from the civilian perspective—a category which includes such classics as The Cranes Are Flying and Hope & Glory, Grave of the Fireflies and Forbidden Games—didn’t make the cut. Post-war dramas, like Ashes and Diamonds and Germany, Year Zero, as well as films that go to war for only a fraction of the running time, such as From Here to Eternity and Born on the Fourth of July, were also excluded. Some tough choices were made on what actually constituted a “war movie.” Resistance dramas feature in this list, but Casablanca doesn’t appear. Likewise Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped and Sidney Lumet’s The Hill. It was decided ultimately that the war was too much a peripheral element in these films. On the other hand, while both western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and biopic The Imitation Game feature war prominently, they, like Casablanca (a romance with noir and thriller elements) plus A Man Escaped and The Hill (both prison movies), belong more obviously to other genres. We’ve also decided not to include movies which focus on the Holocaust here; those are set to appear in another feature entirely. Regarding the films that do feature here: our 100 hail from all over the world. These films were released as recently as last year and as far back as 1930. They range from comical to harrowing, action-packed to quietly introspective, proudly gung-ho to deeply anti-war. They are a diverse set of movies; they are also worthy of being called the 100 greatest war movies ever made. Published May 2017
  22. Paste's 50 Best Samurai Films of All Time's icon

    Paste's 50 Best Samurai Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. What is it about the samurai that captivates Westerners? The armor and swords, the reverent attitude and the reputation for supreme competence in warfare are all pretty impressive, but they don’t get to the heart of it. I believe it might be that at the core of every samurai is the code of bushido, the feudal Japanese equivalent of chivalry, with its one edict above all else: If the time should call for it, protect your lord with your life. That self-abnegation in service of something greater than oneself is the question at the heart of the works of generation after generation of directors as they revisit the samurai film. And it’s why we’re so excited to present Paste’s list of the 50 Best Samurai Films of All Time. This is a broad genre, just from a the standpoint of how much history falls within it. The American Western falls more or less within the bounds of the 19th Century, yet samurai films offer centuries of warfare, palace intrigue and a drawn-out end of an era for the history and film buff to chew on. Samurai flicks really have something for everyone. Fans of period pieces will love the intricate set design, costuming and portrayals of towering historical figures in the midst of epic conflict. If operatic drama is more your speed, you can sit back and watch committed actors dine upon lavish scenery. Action junkies get to watch riveting combat with cool-looking swords. And fans of film history in general will delight in tracing the lineage of some of the West’s cinematic touchstones to their forebears in the East, as well as some stellar Eastern adaptations of Western canon. It is with solemn bushido reverence that I invite you to join us as we dive into 50 films that exemplify this mightiest of genres. We’ve formed this list with a careful eye toward the classic jidaigeki (Age of Civil War period piece) and chambara (swordfighting) films that typify the genre in Japan, but also to some of the weird and subversive outliers that challenge audience expectations or the mythic idea of the samurai code. And because this genre is so deeply steeped in the history of its homeland, we’ve also arranged this list in a loose sort of historical chronological order and added some context that might help clarify the settings of some of the movies. In the interest of keeping things tight, we’ve excluded anime entries, but for a definitive list that includes some animated samurai action, check out Paste’s 100 Best Anime Films.
