Written by Rajadhyaksha (senior fellow, Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore) and Willemen (critical studies, Napier Univ., Edinburgh), this is a one-stop reference book on Indian cinema. Encompassing films in the major Indian languages, this revised edition (originally published in 1994 and updated to 1995) contains entries on directors, stars, producers, writers, and composers and lists birth and death dates, background information, and filmography. A chronological listing of films from 1912 onwards--complete with cast, credits, and plot synopses--is also provided; and black-and-white photographs appear throughout. In addition, a time line chronicles major milestones in Indian cinema, and a chart displays film statistics on both sound and silent films. An extensive bibliography and a name and film index rounds the volume out. No collection on Indian film can afford to be without this book; highly recommended for academic and larger public libraries.

Huge thanks to cronos for importing so many of these movies to ICM which made my job much easier.
#369: The version of Shakuntala (V. Shantaram) in the book is the 122 minute version made in 1943. As this isn't on imdb, the 76 minute version released in the USA in 1947 is the one on this list.
#442: The book has put up the 1949 version of '42 (A. Chakravarty), however this version was banned in many cities (but not Bombay). Only the edited 1951 version exists on imdb.
#769: While Tero Nadir Parey / Beyond Thirteen Rivers (B. Saha) was made in 1961 it wasn't released until 1969.
#772: The book suggests that Velugu Needalu / Thooya Ullam (A.S. Rao) was released in 1961 however imdb has put 1964 as its release year.
#964: There's limited info on Uyyale / The Swing (N. Lakshminarayan) but the book puts 1969 as the release date for this, this is mistakenly put as 1964 on imdb.

List combining The TSPDT Mega Noir List, The Film Noir Guide, The Film Noir Encyclopedia, The DVD Beaver Essential Film Noir List, The British Film Noir Guide and the 2 BFI Film Noir Lists.
The famous book of Schneider "1001 movies you must see before you die" has several editions. Every few years a new edition is published with new titles (after removing some other titles). Also there are editions especially for a certain country with additional titles from that country.
In this list I'll try to collect as many titles as possible that were in at least one edition of this book. So far I included, apart from the obvious English editions (rank 1-1171), the Dutch (rank 1172-1182), the Swedish (rank 1183-1204), the Greek (rank 1205-1246), the Norwegian (rank 1247-1253), the Finnish (rank 1254-1272), the Danish (rank 1273-1278), the Brazilian (rank 1279-1289), the Hungarian (rank 1290-1295) and the French (rank 1296-1312) editions. I found information about the Portuguese, Spanish, Slovanian, Croatian, Turkish and Polish editions, but these didn't have additional titles. I’ll search for more editions. If you’ve got information about any other, please let me know.
The following listing of these influential, memorable and classic sex scenes and films (chronologically by year) takes into account all of the available surveys of this type of material, and attempts to provide an informed, detailed, unranked grouping of the most influential and groundbreaking films and scenes. It also considers other films with sex-related scenes, including portrayals of sex and/or nudity, and factors in a film's (or scene's) notoriety and infamy and the stars involved. Some of the most notorious (or infamous) films are quite mediocre, usually made as an excuse to display nudity or eroticism of a star performer.
All Feature Films shown at the Vienna International Film Festival since 1996.
From the Homepage:
The Viennale is Austria’s most important international film event, as well as one of the oldest and best-known festivals in the German-speaking world. Every October, the Viennale takes place in beautiful cinemas in Vienna’s historic center, providing the festival with an international orientation and a distinctive urban flair. A high percentage of the more than 96,000 visitors to the festival from Austria and abroad is made up of a decidedly young audience.
In its main program, the Viennale shows a carefully picked selection of new films from all over the globe as well as from Austria, some of them international premieres. The choice of about 300 films offers a cross-section of bold film-making which stands apart from the aesthetics of mainstream conventionality and is politically relevant. Aside from its focus on the newest feature films of every genre and structural form imaginable, the festival gives particular attention to documentary films, international short films, as well as experimental works and crossover films.
Documentaries, Short Films, Retrospectives, Tributes and Special Programs are not included in this list.
Doubling the Canon was about expanding the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They top 1000 movies list with another 1000 movies that were not in that list. The list was compiled by the IMDb classic film board.
"Dizionario dei capolavori del cinema" is an Italian book written by Fernando Di Giammatteo and Cristina Bragaglia and published by Bruno Mondadori Editore in 2004.
It lists 1244 of the "most significative movies" released between 1895 and 2004.
Yes this is in fact every film that has ever won an Oscar for anything. Every film is up here, from Best Picture to Best Makeup. Also included are wins for short films and honorary awards. BIG thanks to user MovieDearest for sending me the complete list of Oscar winners!
All films that I've downloaded that aren't on any static lists. If they are just in the IMDb lists or the Most Fav list, they are included here as well.
Keeping this public so that people can recommend if they want to and to annoy people who don't understand the meaning of 'personal list'.
This is a list of films from all the editions of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die. I figured it would be a good way for you all to keep track, if you're going off of all the editions like I am.

+ "Band of Brothers", "Berlin Alexanderplatz", "Boardwalk Empire", "Brideshead Revisited", "Deadwood", "Dexter", "Downtown Abbey", "I Love Lucy", "John Adams", "Mad Men", "Mission: Impossible", "Monty Python's Flying Circus", "Perry Mason", "Rawhide", "Sex and the City", "Six Feet Under", "The Sopranos", "Starsky and Hutch", "Star Trek", "True Blood", "24", "Twin Peaks", "The Wire", "The World at War" and "You Bet Your Life" among other TV-(mini)series.

Copypasted from listofbest:
"This huge list is the result of about six months of work. I began thinking and digging in the summer of 2007, and then I posted the list in progress on the Classics forum at imdb, receiving many further contributions from numerous posters (but very special gratitude is due to the posters named Colomba, JeNeRegretteRien and WhiteFun for their generous assistance).
This list is an attempt at a fairly thorough compilation of films that I deem quintessential contributions to Russian cinema for one (or more) of three reasons:
1. Critical Acclaim — The film has met with national and/or international critical acclaim (e.g., Tarkovsky’s Mirror or Klimov’s Come and See). Films might also make the list if I feel they are overlooked gems that should have met with critical acclaim.
2. Popular Appeal in Russia — The film has garnered considerable popular appeal among Russians, measured either through initial box office, or by eventual status as a beloved classic (e.g., Diamond Arm or The Irony of Fate).
3. Historical/Cultural Importance – - The film has historical importance, either for its cultural or cinematic impact, or for its significance as a historical artifact. (Two examples: The Battle of Stalingrad is considered by most an example of egregious propaganda fairly lacking in artistic merit or historical veracity, but it is in the list nonetheless as an important reflection of Stalinism at its most absurd; on a different level, I personally feel that Night Watch is a rather painfully vapid film, but it is included because – - along with its record-breaking box office – - it has marked a sea change in Russian cinema.)
Some details about the list:
—The dates are taken from the imdb website for sake of a consistent point of easy reference (although this raises some problems, it solves the main one of consistency). The films are given chronologically, but within each year films are listed alphabetically by their English-translated titles.
— The list focuses on pre-Soviet, Soviet, and post-Soviet eras of Russian film. Some non-Russian Soviet films have also been included if they are at least partially in Russian, if they were produced in Russian studios, or, in a few cases, if they are considered an inextricable part of Russian culture.
— Genre is a particularly difficult matter when it comes to Russian cinema, as the lines of demarcation are so easily blurred. The list is primarily composed of feature-length, cinema-released movies. However, many beloved and important Russian films began in a form that in North America would be called television mini-series; several of these are included. At the compiler’s discretion, numerous short films (live-action and animated) were also included.
Please use the comments box below for any further suggestions or points of criticism, both of which are welcome.
Well, that’s it. Enjoy!"

"Over 1,000 films are listed in this visually arresting, full-color celebration of the silver screen. Film personalities, including actors, directors, cinematographers, and animators, write about their favorite films from a variety of angles. Martin Scorsese, Nicole Kidman, and Nick Hornby are among those who weigh in. Writers are matched to suitable (or sometimes surprising) themes and genres within the wider subject of how films can alter the course of a life. Movie stills and posters, trivia, and top-ten lists make this a book that can be dipped into or read from cover to cover. Great screen moments — endings, beginnings, kisses, death scenes — are given special spreads. The eclectic approach speaks to fans of big Hollywood blockbusters and factoid-reciting film geeks alike."
The top 1000 ranked films from the Films101 website.
The bulk of the Films101 database comes from all-time best movie lists and movie awards. Best Picture and Foreign Language Film nominees are included, many of which have been forgotten, but now are easy to find through the many browsing options. New movie releases are added when picked by selected critics.
The films are ranked in order of acclaim among film professionals, using proprietary formulas. Films101 doesn't believe the exact ranking of films and filmmakers should be taken too seriously. However, approximate rankings are taken very seriously as an alternative to alphabetical or chronological listings for film research.
