  1. Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See's icon

    Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. from the french "Les 101 films historiques à voir - De la Guerre du feu à Zero Dark Thirty" and expanded from the 2013 version "L'histoire fait son cinéma en 100 films: de La Guerre du feu à Démineurs". History has always made its cinema. This has been the case since the advent of the latter at the turn of the 20th century. The 7th Art takes hold of a historical phenomenon to restore it (rarely), magnify it or mishandle it (sometimes), revisit it (often), thus taking some liberties with the reality of events. From Prehistory to the war in Iraq, from Cleopatra to Napoleon, from the fall of the Roman Empire to that of the Ancien Régime, certain eras, certain events, certain figures have been brilliantly captured over the decades by the discerning eye of filmmakers from around the world (DeMille, Eisenstein, Kubrick, Visconti, Lean, Kurosawa, Renoir, Annaud, Mankiewicz, Tavernier, Leone, Malle, Spielberg, Malick, Cimino, Coppola, Bertolucci, Melville, Losey, Bigelow... ), while other moments have been purely and simply forgotten if not obscured. From The War of Fire to Zero Dark Thirty, here is an overview of the 101 best historical films, where we meet the intimate and the monumental, the derisory and the grandiose, the austere and the spectacular. Note: The book is divided in the following sections: Prehistory, Antiquity, The Middle Ages, Modern Times and Contemporary Times with subset sections within them. PS: If anyone can get ahold of the book, please send me a pm with the name of the missing movie.
  2. 1001 Music Videos You Must See Before You Die's icon

    1001 Music Videos You Must See Before You Die

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. Unofficial list and a personal and ongoing project that showcases the evolution of the medium from the early 60's to the present day.

  3. Pardon le Cinéma vol.2: 100 films à voir d'urgence, des classiques aux pépites's icon

    Pardon le Cinéma vol.2: 100 films à voir d'urgence, des classiques aux pépites

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. [b]Pardon the Cinema, vol. 2![/b] The team of the first French podcast on cinema does it again with a new opus. New films, new classics to (re)discover, new nuggets lovingly unearthed, new great moments of the 7th art... But the objective is always the same: to wake up your screens with another cinema, an in-depth selection that travels across all continents and all genres, from 1907 to 2021, from Chile to Japan, from documentaries to action films... [b]100 unknown, forgotten or marginal films... to see urgently! [/b] "Pardon le Cinema" is Victor Bonnefoy (director, screenwriter and creator of the Youtube channel InThePanda), Sophie Grech (press officer and screenwriter), Marc Moquin (editor-in-chief of Revus & Corrigés), Simon Riaux (critic cinema in Le Cercle on Canal+ or on the Large Screen website), Arthur Cios (journalist for Konbini) and Alexis Roux (cinema journalist): a team that talks about cinema in an irresponsible but respectful atmosphere and brings together more than 100,000 listeners per month.
  4. The Telegraph 500 Must-See Films's icon

    The Telegraph 500 Must-See Films

    Favs/dislikes: 18:0. The Telegraph newspaper (UK) published this list over 2nd and 3rd March 2013. It is framed as a mix of individual top lists and genre specific top lists. Due to a mistake, Out of the Past appeared twice within the same subcategory meaning there are only 499 films.
  5. Vakos Family's Must-See Movies's icon

    Vakos Family's Must-See Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Films that every Vakos and Vakos partner/friend must see! Lexi is a Vakos too! We're sorry, but you can't communicate effectively with us unless you've seen or are willing to see these.
  6. It's Asia time's icon

  8. Martin Scorsese's Film School: The 85 films you need to see to know anything about film's icon

    Martin Scorsese's Film School: The 85 films you need to see to know anything about film

    Favs/dislikes: 72:0. With 11 nominations and five wins for Hugo at the 2012 Oscars, Martin Scorsese remains one of the most influential directors in Hollywood. But what influenced him? Here’s an A-Z list of the films that mattered to Scorsese (in other words, the films you need to see to be the film expert you think you are).
  9. Jim Emerson's "102 Movies You Must See"'s icon

    Jim Emerson's "102 Movies You Must See"

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. "These are the movies I just kind of figure everybody ought to have seen in order to have any sort of informed discussion about movies. They’re the common cultural currency of our time, the basic cinematic texts that everyone should know, at minimum, to be somewhat ‘movie-literate.’ I hope these movies are experiences we can all assume we share….This isn’t like Roger Ebert’s ‘Great Movies’ series. It’s not my idea of The Best Movies Ever Made (that would be a different list, though there’s some overlap here), or limited to my personal favorites or my estimation of the most important or influential films…. I tried to represent key examples of all important genres, movie stars, directors, historical movements, and so on — like an overview of the 20th century in 101 movies. Yes, there are many more I’d like to add, but remember, this is only a primer. How many have you seen?" —Jim Emerson
