This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
Pink film (ピンク映画 Pinku eiga or Pink eiga?) is a style of Japanese softcore pornographic theatrical film. Films of this genre first appeared in the early 1960s, and dominated the Japanese domestic cinema from the mid-1960s through the mid-1980s. In the 1960s, the pink films were largely the product of small, independent studios. In the 1970s, some of Japan’s major studios, facing the loss of their theatrical audience, took over the pink film. With their access to higher production-values and talent, some of these films became critical and popular successes. Though the appearance of the AV (adult video) took away most of the pink film audience in the 1980s, films in this genre are still being produced.”—Wikipedia

"The Department of Cinema expects incoming graduate students to possess a reasonable degree of familiarity with films that have proven central to the history of cinema. To that end, at least three advanced film courses are required prior to entering the program. Additionally, the Department expects that new students will be familiar with films in each of the following categories."
Classic American Cinema (1928-1975)
Modern American Cinema (1975-present)
Independent American Cinema
African and Latin American Cinema
These are the movies using the Norwegian language that have the most votes on IMDb. It shows which Norwegian movies are the most well-known or popular. New movies have an edge this way, considering they are more frequently voted, but some old classics managed to fight their way into the list. It contains movies of feature length. I update the list once a month.
This list consists of the 117 movies featured in the 1995 compilation documentary “The Celluloid Closet”.

I compiled this list from diverse lists from critics and polls, collecting information about the best gay themed movies for a broader audience. I weighted it to create a certain ranking. The total of films that were named is 394.
Movies, which target only a homosexual audience were excluded (for example: Eating Out).
I have not seen all of the movies, but I tried to focus on the "serious" movies.
Includes only the movies that are "Highly Recommended" by They Shoot Pictures, Don't They?
"We classify 'highly recommended' films as being superb cinematic achievements. These films are either flawless or near-flawless entertainments and/or artistic triumphs that occupy a special place in our lives. This is our pantheon, it is our canon, call it what you like. These films shouldn't be missed."

This list includes every film which has received an Academy Award nomination or has been awarded an Honorary Academy Award. It also includes High Society which was nominated and had that nomination withdrawn when the Academy realized that they had chosen the wrong High Society.
The list has been vetted against the iCM lists for each individual year. Totals differ because of movies appearing in more than one individual year but having single representation in this master list. In addition, the individual year list for one of the years includes The American Experience (series rather than episode) and I have included the entry for the specific episode.
This list includes the winners and nominees of the award.
List with only the winners:
"Beyond the Canon is essentially a greatest films poll, only without the greatest films. I challenged a number of dedicated film-lovers – critics, bloggers, filmmakers, IMDbers; professional, amateur, and in-between – to select up to 100 films that they believed to have been under-represented by film history, that meant more to them than the established, well-exposed classics." - Iain Stott, The One-Line Review
All the various prizes FIPRESCI - the International Federation of Film Critics - has given at Cannes, including: "In Competition," "Un Certain Regard," "Critics' Week," "Parallel Section," and "Special Mention."
"This list of 1000 short films is compiled from various lists as well as my own list. Each has a 50% weight in Top 500. Since there are not enough data or lists for short films further, the second half (501-1000) is almost entirely based my own list (90%)."
1. The original list ranks "Nachalo nevedomogo veka" two segments separably: #95 and #268. Here the film is ranked #99 only.

Films included on Criterion collection titles in addition to the main feature.
These are both long and short films, however the only requirement is that they are not a traditional 'extra' about the film, like a making of film or an interview. They are instead an additional film, often by that director, that could easily stand alone (if a full feature) or in a compilation (if a short film).
Note: this does not include individual episodes of portmanteau films
Every five years or so the film fans at Criterionforum.org spend half a year discussing the films of a certain decade - viewing and reviewing classics, championing favorites, and highlighting overlooked/underrated films. At the end of the discussion period they each submit lists of their fifty favorite films from the decade, and those lists are then compiled into a top 100, as well as a list of "also-rans" (the films which received more than one vote, but not enough to make the top 100.) This list includes both the top 100 and the "also-rans."
These are the results of the poll conducted from July 2009-January 2010.
