First of all, this list remains as boring as usual. So they added Out 1, big fucking deal, how about some other countries fucking TSPDT critics???

Yes, I'm hijacking again but THEY continue to twist my thoughts and perceptions:

"Interesting... could you please elaborate on how is Lumet a hack? I never criticized "your" Marx bros or Akerman... and I certainly have the right to dislike their work as you have the right to dislike Lumet, but calling this guy a "fucking hack" is way out of line."

Lumet was a studio boy who got lucky with some films. Notice that I love Marx Brothers but not the directors behind them: most of the directors themselves were hacks in the same vein of Lumet who became "successful" because of the Marx Brothers trio (ex-quartet). Lumet ended up being a hack instead of a visionary with Serpico and Dog Day Afternoon and The Hill. He ended up making bullshit studio crap like The Morning After and A Stranger Among Us among many others. Way out of line? You and your lot were and are way out of line when the homogeny of the taste on that forum is disgusting to say the least. I doubt anyone of you idiots over there appreciates Akerman in the same vein as Hitchcock or Antonioni. No wonder, she's too much for your meager heads.

"I'll clear things up here. Jimbo always claims to be banned for voicing his opinion and liking non-American films which is not true. He was banned for turning every thread he posted on into a debate about fascism. He has been banned on more than one occasion on another forum (which I'm not on and have nothing to do with). He is incredibly aggressive and abusive towards other members and he started swearing in almost every post before he was banned."

You're not clearing anything here mister know-it-all. I'm abusive to academia and one-dimensional points of view, particularly to individuals who don't seem to "escape" their safe zones. I was debating on every thread about the homogeny and repetitiveness of films/directors/"movements" most of you were somehow "aware of" and wouldn't even dare to consider "other" stuff a chance other than watching them and of course condemning them to "inferiority" mainly because of your pre-judgement. You were mocking me for pointing out the obvious bullshittery of mainstream crap like Rise of the Apes and for pointing out that directors like Ruiz deserve as many chances as your precious canonized fucks.

"We tried to reason with him and send him messages telling him to tone down his behaviour but he'd simply send back vulgar messages. In one such message he told me to "suck cock or lick pussy". This is who you're dealing with. He wanted to be banned so that he could talk about the fascist admins. We've been running the forum for about eight months and not one other member has even had a warning."

You deserve such treatment. Free speech contains heated arguments and fierce contradictions, what are you, some fucking 5 year olds who cry in their daddy's laps? Not one member had a warning because no one dared to oppose your homogeny.

"His second username was banned because he tried to hide who he was. You cannot be banned and then simply re-register under a different name otherwise there would be no point in being banned. After he was first banned I changed the settings of the forum specifically for him so that he'd still be able to read the posts. When it became clear that he was registering with fake usernames I had to do an IP ban."

The moment you banned my IP address, you became a fascist pig. After you first banned me, I gave up but I returned as jamesjoyce because I A: couldn't see any thread even when you messaged me that you "changed the settings" and B: because it would be the only way to acquire some links for rare films and short films to watch (in case they appeared)

Moreover, I returned in a civil manner and it's evident in my jamesjoyce posts but you didn't give me a second chance to prove so. Your behavioral judgement is pathetic to say the least, even more so by thinking that I returned with "fake addresses".

1. jamesjoyce is neither fake nor a cheat, I also have an original e-mail with that username
2. I don't know what your definition of "fake addresses" really is and I'm afraid to think otherwise but I only registered one more time after you banned me and that's it. Please do not accuse me again in the plural mode.

"One more point. Jimbo likes to claim things like "the majority of the users are bigots" or "the majority of users won't listen to this" etc. In reality, he's formed these views before even listening to what everyone has to say. I can even think of occasions when he responded to people to suit his own agenda even though what they posted had nothing worthy of the attack they received."

If they generalized, they deserved to be stomped down. Go crawl back into your hole rat.

"He might be knowledgeable about films but his anger and agendas wreck whatever points he tries to make which is a pity. For that reason, it's generally not worth getting into a debate with him as he has so much venom towards people."

Politeness has been dead for centuries. It's time for culture, education and history to prevail in an open-minded, worldwide notion and not towards specific areas of fucking interest.

@MrCarmady, considering the fact that you have barely seen over 200 of these films I don't really understand how you can call this list Awful and boring.

I think the multiple entry films should have the additional entries moved to the top (since nearly all positions are wrong now) or even better removed with a note in the description.

This is still the list on the site I most want to complete. I really love their 21st Century list to but I only have a few left. The problem with this list is that for the most part the films have left to see are not available on Netflix. The only way I would be able to make more of a dent on this list as it currently stands is to torrent.

I'll post whatever I want, however I want it to be. People who refuse to see the truth deserve my ranting.

Moreover, I started commenting on this TSPDT section simply to criticize this list, not to engage in a personal vendetta with some close-minded individuals. They turned this into a vendetta once again. I only wanted to criticize the list!!!!

Truth be told, I'm commenting on it because I more or less agree with you about the narrow international canon, but I'm disappointed that you're voicing your concerns in such an unnecessarily abrasive form. It's exactly the sort of attitude that makes it easy to dismiss an opinion, whether its valid or not. I don't see how a little cordiality would hurt.

"I wonder what on earth you think you'll accomplish by posting like this."

I'm replying to a post below me. I'm not sure why you're even commenting on a matter that doesn't concern you.

"And if you call someone a fascist for kicking you off an internet forum, you're being spiteful."

I believe in truths and free arguments in any form possible. The fact they kicked me off in the first place is worse than me having spites towards them. As I said, I'm replying to a comment below me (now on a previous page)

"It was in the introduction to the latest edition"

Their neglect towards the 70% of Europe though isn't mentioned in that pamphlet, as per usual, most are only aware of Europe as an Italo-Franco-Germanic plutocracy with glimpses of British-Swedish and Spanish agenda and...nothing more.

If you ever understand and it was your behavior and language and not your opinions that got you kicked, and decide to be nice to everyone I'm sure we'll let you back in."

I am who I am and that will NEVER change. However, I am not that pissed off by the team's ban (you as in you was a generalization, not so an accusation) but pissed off at the general IP ban after probably 1-2 admins / mods realized who I was masked as jamesjoyce. I am willing to keep up with the jamesjoyce pace and contradict no one, just comment on films as I did so when I returned like that but I found it ridiculous that soem fuckers banned my whole IP without giving me a chance.

I'm not the one who has spites, they are. They act as petty fascists and I am not to blame when they insult me like that.

"It's the counties/artists own fault for not getting their product out there! "

Really? How about what the fucking world market wants? The world market according to fucking academics I mean.

Academia can hire more translators to make the unavailable....well, available! It's that fucking simple! But no, I suppose people like you pathetic Crinderman find it more illustrious to block my ICM forum access completely either I'm logged as jimbotender or as jamesjoyce. Seems to me that whether I'm enraged or polite, you don't want me in your little group of academic illiterates, so don't question my well-researched arguments on matters regarding prejudice of certain countries over others!

"I find it odd though that countries like Iran, which is probably the country that's on the worst terms with the west is such a popular movie country, and has several films on this list, when you claim that people only run to their comfort zones." Iran is trendy, just like China, who knows, Romania may become trendy too due to all this New Wave mania but trendiness shouldn't be the key but the pathway to discover EVEN MORE.

Willing to be? You should be believing already since I'm not even the hardcore of cinephiles due to my affair with literature, philosophy, theatre and music and yet, I don't have any prejudice towards anything at all, I consider many of the heavy-hitters equal to EVERYTHING obscure I've watched and loved (of course)

As far as lists go, from Pakistan to Egypt to Peru to Cuba to Finland to Estonia to Romania to Bulgaria, to even Greece and Turkey and Senegal, there aren't that comprehensive lists as opposed to Japan or France or even Canada dammit that will offer valuable information to the TSPDT individuals and I highly doubt half of them would make that cut! It's obvious there'll never be such equality, not even in my primary favorite artistic medium, literature, so I may as well pursue this goal myself for the time being...
