  1. Top 100 Homosexual Themed Movies's icon

    Top 100 Homosexual Themed Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 29:1. 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. Enjoy!

The list is divided into 5 sections: 1-10: Bangladeshi 11-20: Diaspora 21-30: Indian 31-40: Pakistani 41-50: Sri Lankan
  8. Byrge & Miller’s “The Screwball Comedy Films”'s icon

    Byrge & Miller’s “The Screwball Comedy Films”

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. "This list is based off the book The Screwball Comedy Films: A History and Filmography, 1934-1942 by Duane Byrge and Robert Milton Miller. From the introduction: 'A screwball comedy was at heart a love story. It’s central romance was frequently instigated by an aggressive, even eccentric woman whose efforts to prod her more stodgy and conventional beau along the rocky road to the altar primed the comic mechanisms for a great deal of humor-by-embarassment. Improbable events, mistaken identities, and ominously misleading circumstantial evidence quickly compounded upon each other, albeit by seemingly logical progression, until a frantic conclusion in which even the impending marriage gives only faint promise of providing some whit of order as antidote to the previous narrative chaos. This book is intended as an historical menu for the feast, as well as a guide to sorting out and identifying the certifiably screwball from the much larger parade of vintage cinema comedy which surrounds it in the program schedules and on the cassette racks. Each of the following freature films described in the second section of this book has been found by the authors to qualify as sufficiently "screwy," by the standards of the era, to merit inclusion in our annotated filmography.' The films are listed chronologically."
  9. Cannes Film Festival - FIPRESCI Prize's icon

    Cannes Film Festival - Prix Un Certain Regard

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0.

  12. Cinecouch's Top 1000 Short Films's icon

    Cinecouch's Top 1000 Short Films

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. "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. 2. Fantasia to referenced to "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment 3. Les sept péchés capitaux is referenced to Godard's "La Paresse" episode 4. L'Amore is referenced to "Il Miracolo" segment
  13. Criterion Collection Stand-Alone Extras's icon

    Criterion Collection Stand-Alone Extras

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. 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
  14. Disney animated shorts's icon

    Disney animated shorts

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0.
  15. Entertainment Weekly’s Top 50 Cult Movies's icon

    Entertainment Weekly’s Top 50 Cult Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. Published in 2003, Entertainment Weekly Magazine described their Top 50 Cult Movies thusly: "most died at the box office, some of them horribly. Mangled and despised, they were re-animated on video. And now they compose our cultural Esperanto, a subliminal vocabulary of vaguely subversive images, ideas, and phrases that we continue to obsess over and dissect at parties, around water coolers, in bars, over the blaring banalities of the mainstream media din. They are Cult Movies...So if you take your dead evil and your buckaroos banzai-ed, pour yourself a tall glass of Kool-Aid and peruse this list…" Note: Reader response to the original list was so great, that EW subsequently annexed their list with 11 “readers’ choice” picks. Why 11? Well, it's one longer, isn't it …?
  16. Fantastic Cinema (Peter Nicholls)  700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films's icon

    Fantastic Cinema (Peter Nicholls) 700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. This extensive appendix in Nicholl's book lists 700 fantasy/horror/sci-fi films,1902-1983. Note that it is not a 'best of' list. While some films are must-see classics, others are z-grade junk - there's even a few TV-movies in the mix. Nicholls may be academic but he's no snob - like Danny Peary, he believes in seeing all types of movies. Most of these appended films are reviewed in capsules (the others have already been discussed in more detail in the main body of the book). He gives titles a dual rating, one for quality (stars) and another for squeamishness (skulls). Interestingly, Nicholls embraces a broad range of movies in his critique, including the James Bond series (because of its sci-fi overtones with gadgetry, supervillians, etc) and films with a surreal, psychological, or dreamlike approach. You'd have to be a true film fan to watch the wide range of titles here - everything from Monty Python and the Muppets to Russian silent films and Italian zombie gore.

  20. 'I Capolavori' - The 4 and 5 star Italian classics, according to the Morandini dictionary's icon

    'I Capolavori' - The 4 and 5 star Italian classics, according to the Morandini dictionary

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. The “Dizionario dei Film” (Italian for: “Dictionary of Films”) – written and updated on a year-by-year basis by Laura, Luisa and Morando Morandini – is one of the highest-praised collection of film-reviews in Italy. Its purpose is to give the readers a short summary and a brief critical view for every film ever shown in our Country (even if available just on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.). Currently, about 27’000 films are reviewed on it. At the end of every article, there is a star-based rating, which works like this: * (one star), * 1/2 (one star and a half), * * (two stars), * * 1/2 (two stars and a half), * * * (three stars), * * * 1/2 (three stars and a half), * * * * (four stars), * * * * * (five stars). The four-star rating is generally given to film regarded as masterpieces, while the five-star rating is assigned to those films that are considered to be fundamental in the history of cinema or that represent the highest achievement of a great director.

  24. Real Life Horrors's icon

    Real Life Horrors

    Favs/dislikes: 28:0. Original IMDb list created by Dr-Faustus. [quote=Dr-Faustus]There can be no fictional film that compares to the atrocities of real life. Some of these atrocities, abuses, injustices and crimes committed have been documented. Unfortunately man has learn't little from his past. Hopefully these films will create awareness and prevention in the future. "Only by acceptance of the past, can you alter it".- T.S. Eliot. This list is dedicated to all those people working towards a peaceful, tolerant and harmonious world, and IMDb for creating the means for people to do so, through film.[/quote]
