  13. The Hankyoreh's 100 Korean Films's icon

    The Hankyoreh's 100 Korean Films

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. For the 100th anniversary of Korean film, Hankyoreh and CJ Cultural Foundation organized a selection committee with 38 experts from the film industry, (including directors, producers, critics, programmers, and researchers of film history) to select 100 films to represent 100 years of Korean film. Top 11 in chronological order "The Border City" (2002) and "The Border City 2" (2009) are included together, but the former is missing on ICM and IMDB.
  14. AMP's The 40 Best Japanese Movies of the Decade (2011-2020)'s icon

    AMP's The 40 Best Japanese Movies of the Decade (2011-2020)

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. National cinemas come and go from the top, which is currently dominated by Korea, as it did by Hong Kong some decades ago, but the truth remains that the only one who has stayed on top since its beginning (maybe with the exception of the 80s) is the Japanese one. Either through the festival favorites like Koreeda, Kawase, Kiyoshi Kurosawa or through the more cult like Miike, Sono, Toyoda, or through a number of newcomers, Japanese cinema continues to make an impact, proving both its current quality and its potential for the years to come. The decade that just passed is another testament to the fact, and the movies that you will find in this list, the most distinct proof. In an effort to winnow some of the best Japanese movies of the decade (2011-2020), we came up with 40 we felt were the ones that truly stand out in terms of quality, impact and sheer entertainment they offered. The order of this list could be different of course and the number much bigger, but our effort was towards presenting great films and not cataloguing all of them, always with a focus on diversity in style, themes and filmmaker.
  15. BFI's 90 great films of the 1990s's icon

    BFI's 90 great films of the 1990s

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. One decade. 90 films. One film per director. How do you even begin to choose just 90 films to represent an entire decade of cinema? That’s the question we’ve been asking ourselves ever since BFI Southbank announced its two-month retrospective, Nineties: Young Cinema Rebels. With the season casting a very specific eye on the new voices that emerged between 1989 and 1999, we thought we’d cast our net a little wider, in a squabble-inducing attempt to shine a light on some of the very best films the decade produced. There’s no scientific method applied to the selection process here, and this isn’t a Sight & Sound poll involving hundreds of critics or filmmakers. It’s more a chance for us to highlight some of our favourite films from around the world. This list of 90s greats could very easily have been at least double the size (in early drafts it was), but with only 90 spots available, some favourites – both ours and yours – are bound to be missing, the hope being that any frustration at omissions will be juxtaposed with a few new discoveries. To keep things as varied as possible, we’ve allowed for only one film per director – in itself leading to some impossible choices. Take the ranking with as little or large a pinch of salt as you see fit; every film on this list is terrific as far as we’re concerned, and these things are always going to be subjective, with any and all grievances or nods of approval welcome.
  16. BFI's One Great Film Noir for Every Year (1940-59)'s icon

    BFI's One Great Film Noir for Every Year (1940-59)

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Nobody knew what to call film noirs when they first started coming out of Hollywood in the early 1940s. Reviews of the time call them “tough melodramas”, “murder mysteries” or simply “crime dramas”. The French had the solution. When movies such as Double Indemnity, Laura and Murder, My Sweet (all 1944) saw delayed release in Paris after the end of the Second World War, critics likened them to the ‘romans noirs’ of 1930s crime novelists such as Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain and Dashiell Hammett. The term ‘film noir’ stuck. For most of the 1940s and 50s, this style of crime film was dominant. You can spot them by their shadowy visuals and shady morals. Hard-talking men fall for duplicitous dames, as cigarette smoke wreaths around them on dark street corners or in rooms with the slatted blinds pulled down. Hot on the heels of the Great Depression and the traumatising violence of the war, film noir reflected a world-weary fatalism in the American mood (and in the many European émigré filmmakers who had fled to Hollywood). The movies borrowed angular lighting effects from 1920s German films and a poetic gloominess from 1930s French films, wrapping it all up in tantalising packages of grit, glamour and cynicism. Here’s one key film from each of the influential cycle’s peak years. (Plus three more to "See Also")

  18. The Playlist's The 100 Best Sci-Fi Films of All Time's icon

    The Playlist's The 100 Best Sci-Fi Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. If there was ever a time where sci-fi was seen as something only for geeks, that time has long gone. You could debate the exact point at which it changed — when Stanley Kubrick’s “2001” had audiences dropping acid for a better trip, when the blockbuster success of “Star Wars” changed film forever, when comic book movies dominated screens, when CGI made it possible to do almost anything, when even nerdy old “Star Trek” got a sleek, hip makeover — but there’s no doubt that the genre is firmly within the mainstream. Indeed, looking at the blockbuster season ahead, there’s all kinds of science-fiction adventures to come, with this week bringing the second space adventure in three weeks, with Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” which follows “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” into theaters, where it’s currently doing gangbusters. And three of the all-time top-five worldwide grossers are hard sci-fi movies: “Avatar,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Jurassic World.” Scott’s return once again to the sci-fi franchise he helped create has had us thinking about the genre’s place in history, so we decided to take our most comprehensive look at the genre ever, and pick out what, in our view, are the 100 greatest sci-fi movies of all time. It’s a genre almost as old as cinema, so it was understandably difficult to pin down, even with a few ground rules (most notably that we sort of consider superhero films their own thing). But we’ve found a list that we’re pretty happy with in the end, though we’re sure it’ll inspire plenty of debate. Take a look below.
  19. Empire's The 60 Best Action Movies's icon

    Empire's The 60 Best Action Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. "Action". To some it just means "violence", but the greats of action cinema give us something more, turning shootings, punching and explosions into a spectacular artform. From the taciturn classics of the '70s, through the one-man-army '80s, the mismatched-buddy '90s and on to the superheroic present day, allow Empire to guide you through 60 of our favourites.

    Letterboxd's Official Top 250 Documentary Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. LAST UPDATE: June 2022 A companion piece to Dave Vis' list of Letterboxd's official top 250 films of all-time, which excludes documentaries from consideration. Credit to Andrew for the idea. Ranked by average user rating. Updated once a month. Expanded from a top 100 to a top 250 on June 27th, 2021, on the list's 3-year anniversary. ~~ ELIGIBILITY RULES: • Documentaries must be feature-length (45+ minutes), with a theatrical and/or festival release in its entirety. • TV series, miniseries, and episodes are excluded but docs listed as 'TV movie' on IMDb are eligible. Exceptions made for series that also had a limited theatrical release. • No featurettes unless theatrically distributed, even if feature-length (featurettes are marked as 'Video' on IMDb, such as 'making of' docs). • Concert films are allowed if they had a theatrical release. However, documentaries and concert films about contemporary musicians have a 10-year grace period before eligibility due to unintentional vote manipulation by fans. Exceptions are made for disbanded or deceased groups as well as films that debuted at a film festival. • No standup comedy marked as a documentary, nor any stage shows. Exceptions may be made for borderline exceptions. • There is a 1,000 minimum ratings threshold.
  22. Mark Kermode's 25 of the Best Films for Children's icon

    Mark Kermode's 25 of the Best Films for Children

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. In compiling this list of 25 great movies for children, I have attempted to bear in mind the vast range of films that I was lucky enough to have encountered at an impressionable age, and to acknowledge that, until fairly recently, young moviegoers were raised on a diet of movies that played to audiences of all ages. My choices range from short animations to feature-length live-action films, from silent films to foreign-language classics (I’m assuming subtitles aren’t an issue) from a century of international cinema. Along with the more obvious contenders, I’ve included a few titles that some readers may not consider to be children’s films at all. Fair enough. But, crucially, these are all films that kids could watch, if they wanted. The list is arranged not by merit but by date.
  23. Stephen Brockmann's A Critical History of German Film's icon

    Stephen Brockmann's A Critical History of German Film

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From early masterpieces such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) and Metropolis (1927) to the post-1945 films of Fassbinder, Herzog, and Wenders, German film constitutes a crucial part of the history of world cinema. It helped to shape Hollywood cinema and had a major impact on other cinemas as well. This tried and tested book, popular in college classrooms and among general-interest readers, is the most comprehensive and readable introduction to the history of German cinema, specifically designed to meet the needs of those who want a comprehensible, accessible introduction to the subject. There is no other book that covers the history of German cinema in the same depth and also explores the genesis and meaning of the most important masterpieces in German film history. It does so in chapters devoted to each of thirty-two individual films and in seven interchapters that provide context for historical periods from early German cinema to postunification. The book now appears in an improved, expanded, and up-to-date second edition that covers five additional films, expands the coverage of women's cinema, and brings the history of filmmaking in Germany up to the present moment. The book is specifically designed to appeal to cinema aficionados and for use in college classrooms, where it has been greeted with acclaim by students and teachers alike. Stephen Brockmann is Professor of German at Carnegie Mellon University. #1: Early German Film History 1895-1918 #2-7: Weimar Cinema 1919-1933 #8-10: Nazi Cinema 1933-1945 #11: German Cinema at the Zero Hour 1945-1949 #12-15: Postwar East German Cinema 1949-1989 #16-25: Postwar West German Cinema 1949-1989 #26-32: German Film after Reunification 1990-2019

    AMP's The 40 Best Action/Martial Arts Movies of the Decade (2011-2020)

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Although continuously snubbed by critics and festivals, action movies still retain their popularity among mainstream audiences in particular, while a number of them frequently cross towards the cult category. The golden age of these movies, which parallels the pick of Hong Kong cinema and particularly of companies like Shaw Brothers, Golden Harvest and Milkyway Image, is long since gone. However, excellent productions continue to be released every year, with the scepters having been passed on to the ASEAN countries, particularly after the immense success of “The Raid”, which essentially kick-started a whole trend. At the same time, China/Hong Kong and S. Korea continue to release blockbusters of the category, while Japan always has the anime/manga adaptations, which frequently prove quite successful. In an effort to select some of the best action/martial arts movies of the decade (2011-2020), we came up with 40 we felt were the ones that truly stand out in terms of quality, impact and sheer entertainment they offered. The order of this list could be different of course and the number much bigger, but our effort was towards presenting great films and not cataloguing all of them, always with a focus on diversity in style, themes, origin, and filmmaker. NOTE: Two films currently missing: #14 Geran (Areel Abu Bakar, 2020) #33 We Will Not Die Tonight (Richard Somes, 2018) Two extra films as #12 is a trilogy.

    AMP's The 40 Best Korean Movies of the Decade (2011-2020)

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. What started as the Korean New Wave in the late 90s really flourished in the 2000s. The 2010s, however, is where we saw what we can call the “new” golden age for Korean cinema, where several new-name directors made their mark, established filmmakers cemented their names in world cinema, actors became stars, blockbuster cinema raked in big money and independent cinema also thrived. Thanks to the success of films like “The Handmaiden” and “Train to Busan” on a global level, a new audience started having a much keener interest in films from the country, while the unprecedented, historic success of “Parasite” at the end only went on to bookend the truly spectacular decade that the 2010s was for South Korean cinema. In an effort to winnow some of the best Korean movies of the decade (2011-2020), we came up with 40 we felt were the ones that truly stand out in terms of quality, impact and sheer entertainment they offered. The order of this list could be different of course and the number much bigger, but our effort was towards presenting great films and not cataloguing all of them, always with a focus on diversity in style, themes and filmmakers.
