    Alex's Top

    Favs/dislikes: 1:7. This is movies that you must see before you die
  5. My list Starting Now: 2014's icon

    My list Starting Now: 2014

    Favs/dislikes: 1:5. This is my list of movies that I have watched so far. I will try to update it as soon as I am done. Sort of an experiment I guess. Trying to order it from the most recent to the least recent.
  6. Martial arts's icon

    Martial arts

    Favs/dislikes: 46:4. The martial arts top list has been compiled by aggregating a large number of lists on the internet, due to the lack of a definitive martial arts list. Its main focus lies in movies from Asia, the birthplace of martial arts.
  7. South Park episodes's icon

    South Park episodes

    Favs/dislikes: 11:4. A list of all regular South Park episodes, because some tend to be hard to find due to inconsistent naming.
  8. Bad Movies We Love's icon

    Bad Movies We Love

    Favs/dislikes: 33:3. Compiled by Edward Margulies and Stephen Rebello, the caustically clever authors of Movieline magazine’s popular feature “Bad Movies We Love”, this outrageous 1993 book leaves no stone (including Sharon) unturned as it skewers some of Hollywood’s biggest big-budget film fiascos ever and the stars and filmmakers who made it all happen.
  9. Best of/Fav - Top-ish [All]'s icon

    Best of/Fav - Top-ish [All]

    Favs/dislikes: 0:3. Subjective lists or interpreted statistics being "official" lists is silly. This is, as is, any list. #wowisoundlikeadouche -- Quick info/Queue: genres http://www.filmsite.org/genres.html **DEF** Drama Romance Action Comedy Horror Sci-Fi / Science Fiction - Fantasy Sci-Fi -- **Minor Ones/Cross-Overs/Mixes** - Minor means under another genre - Cross-Over/Mix - is a mix. So not sure what mix is then. Use either term. - Info - not sure what to call these - Add-on - not sure when to use _Minor_ War (under action) Sci-Fi Fantasy (IE Star Trek, Star Wars, keke) _Cross-Over/Mix_ Rom-com Dramedy _Add-on_ Westerns Adventure ? Epic? - is this a genre or just opinion, lol Historical? Crime/Gangster? Musicals/Dance - Lulz _Info?_ Indie Big Budget
  10. 1001 TV Series You Must Watch Before You Die (2015)'s icon

    1001 TV Series You Must Watch Before You Die (2015)

    Favs/dislikes: 32:2. This is the 1st edition (October 2015) and the latest addition to the bestselling and highly acclaimed 1001-series. "From "Leave it to Beaver" to "Breaking Bad", "The Honeymooners" to "Homeland", this compilation of important and groundbreaking television shows is packed full of trivia and will be sure to make you want to pick up the remote or start streaming. Selected by an international team of experts and covering a worldwide spectrum of programs from the classics of the 1950s to the cutting-edge shows of today, 1001 TV Series is one of the most comprehensive books ever published on the topic of television." This volume is virtually impossible to finish (as you have to watch every single episode of every single entry). Not to mention many of the shows are still running this very day. If the authors instead chose to focus only on TV-series/TV-Mini-series/TV-movies you might have had a chance, but unfortunately, TV shows - including Game shows, Reality and Talk shows - are also included. NOTE: the book contains some TV-movies or stand-alone episodes from TV-series, but the vast majority of the entries are either TV-series, TV-Mini-series or TV shows. The genres are: Action/Adventure: 43 Animation: 13 Awards show: 3 Biography: 1 Comedy: 246 Comedy/Drama: 31 Crime: 1 Crime/Mystery: 101 Documentary: 18 Drama: 226 Fantasy/Horror/Sci-Fi: 107 Game show: 26 Historical drama: 60 Music/Musical: 13 Reality: 31 Soap opera: 28 Sports: 2 Talk Show: 16 Variety: 22 Western: 13 = 1001 TV-series/shows/movies that, according to the introduction by Robb Pearlman, "could not be included" (it is never argued why): The Winds of War (1983) Lonesome Dove (1989) Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) [???????] Sybil (1976) Gia (1998) Trilogy of Terror (1975) Duel (1971) V (1983) Recount (2008) Game Change (2012) An Early Frost (1984) And the Band Played On (1993) Brian's Song (1971) Mildred Pierce (2011) Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (2001). Some entries that most likely will cause some problems in terms of checking them are the Awards shows: Academy Awards (#17), Golden Globe Awards (#50), MTV Video Music Awards (#365) as well as "Eurovision Song Contest" (#32). Instead of adding every single annual event for these shows, I decided to add only the earliest entry I could locate on IMDb (as if you care about those shows and/or will finish this list anyway). NOTE: "1001 TV Series You Must Watch Before You Die" and "1001 TV Shows You Must Watch Before You DIe" have identical entires (1948-2015) - as well as the same page total (960) - although they're two different books. Generally speaking, the only differences between the two books are: - the introduciton is longer in "Shows" (an introduction by Robb Pearlman) whereas "Series" have a much shorter introduction and instead have an additional index (Index by Genre). The "Index by Genre" is not featured in "Shows". - "Shows" is in hardcover whereas "Series" is in paperback. - The front and back cover are different. If you spot any errors (or if any of the abovementioned series/shows I've listed earlier has been added to IMDb), or if you have any questions about the entries or the list as a whole, please don't hesitate to PM me.
  11. Butler's Fantasy Cinema: Impossible Worlds on Screen's icon

    Butler's Fantasy Cinema: Impossible Worlds on Screen

    Favs/dislikes: 63:2. From the Short Cuts book [url=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fantasy-Cinema-Impossible-Worlds-Screen/dp/1906660166]Fantasy Cinema: Impossible Worlds on Screen[/url]. [quote]Often dismissed as simple escapist tales of sword and sorcery, fantasy is one of the fundamental impulses in filmmaking, a source of some of the most vivid and memorable films ever made that reaches far beyond the confines of a single genre. As well as some of the major genres, stylistic approaches and exponents of cinematic fantasy - from Georges Méliè̀s, Walt Disney, and Andrei Tarkovsky to contemporary fantasists such as Terry Gilliam and Peter Jackson - this volume focuses on fantasy's social function with case studies including The Thief of Baghdad (1924), Excalibur (1981), the Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-03), and Bruce Almighty (2003). Taking in the popular and the experimental, subversive desires and reactionary dreams, this book is an accessible introduction to one of the vital energies in cinema. The Short Cuts series is a comprehensive list of introductory texts covering the full spectrum of Film Studies, specifically designed for building an individually-styled library for all students and enthusiasts of cinema and popular culture.[/quote] Three films are considered lost: - La cigale et la fourmi (1897) - La caverne maudite (1898) - Le petit chaperon rouge (1901) [url=https://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Cinema-Impossible-Worlds-Wallflower/dp/1906660166]Source[/url]

    Galloway's Samurai Film Handbook & Companion

    Favs/dislikes: 66:2. This list combines 2 books by Patrick Galloway: #1-51: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Stray-Dogs-Lone-Wolves-Handbook/dp/1880656930]Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves: The Samurai Film Handbook[/url] (2005) #52-91: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Warring-Clans-Flashing-Blades-Companion/dp/1933330783]Warring Clans, Flashing Blades: A Samurai Film Companion[/url] (2009) "Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves provides essential background on the samurai warrior in Japanese culture to help explain what makes these tales of loyalty, revenge and explosive swordsmanship so watchable. It covers top directors and stars and has over 50 original reviews of a wide variety of films, from classics like Samurai Trilogy and Yojimbo to influential films like Lady Snowblood, plus newly released hits like Takeshi Kitano’s Zatoichi." "Warring Clans, Flashing Blades picks up where Galloway’s fan-favorite Stray Dogs & Lone Wolves left off, delving deeper into the samurai film and its spin-off genres—yakuza, ninja, and matatabi."

  14. Stephen King Filmography's icon

    Stephen King Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 68:2. The filmography of movies based on the many works from the author Stephen King. All features films, including mini TV series and TV series. No shorts. There is another list based on Stephen King's works here on iCheckmovies. But that list is so incomplete so it was useless for a collector like me.
