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.
Here's a bunch of potentially shitty flicks we'll see together at the Skype Crew.
If you know of a crappy movie, that's also an official check, and is not on this list, recommend away!
Wanna watch a movie with the Skype Crew? Send me a PM, then. :)
The list can also be found at IMDb, with our ranking for each movie: http://www.imdb.com/list/gEVCJVXOpD4/
In 2010, the editors of American History Magazine published a special issue ranking the 100 greatest sports movies in their estimation. They combined "Olympia" Parts I & II for a single entry, and also combined "The Babe" and "The Babe Ruth Story" at #43.
We asked you to rack your brains, ransack your Blu-ray collections and vote for your favourite films of all time. And in your thousands, you did. Here are the results of Empire's 100 Greatest Movies poll.
From masterpieces to obscure splatter films, the horror genre has always preyed upon the weaknesses of the human mind. Whether it’s the monster under the bed or the monster next door, most horror films share a common currency: fear and its more popular form of exchange, anxiety.
However, there are certain titles that manage to refine this formula and, instead of relying only on supernatural antagonists and murderous maniacs, follow the more intricate paths of psychology and psychiatry.
The list next contains a series of recent films that manage to trade their characters’ psychological and sometimes physical wellness for a copious amount of fear. While these movies might feature their own dose of supernatural, the classical horror recipe is not their strong point. Also, most of these productions will cast doubt either on their characters’ sanity or the viewer’s.
We went for titles that came out during the past three years and intentionally left out the classics, including Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and highlights from the 2000’s such as Identity or Frailty. Also note that this list does not contain any actual plot spoilers, but it might “spoil” the thrills you’d eventually get from discovering some of these movies’ key characters.
This list is inspired by the article "No Country for Bad Movies" from the June, 2011 issue of Texas Monthly. Their panel was limited by criteria such as no documentaries, nothing made-for-TV, and each film "had to really feel as if it could only have been made in Texas". Their official results comprise listings 1-10 below, in no particular order.
Everything after #10 is an at-large selection made by me based on looser guidelines, namely anything partially set in or partially filmed in Texas.
George Lucas was inspired by a lot whilst writing the story of Star Wars. He was influenced by books, mythology, religion, his personal life and of course movies. This list gives an overview of films and television series that have left their prints in this story.
The only way to make a list of The 100 Greatest Films of All Time is to look at what has come before. So, a decision was made to review a selection of lists made by respected critics and others from around the globe. The commonality of these choices has helped form Alice's overall selection. The most famous poll since 1952 is Sight & Sound magazine's compilation, whereby every 10 years the world's leading film critics and directors are asked for their top 10 choices. Other sources utilised include the AFI (American Film Institute), the BFI (British Film Institute), the National Society of Film Critics, Cahiers du Cinema, Time, Time Out, Empire and so on. In all, 22 Top 100 lists featuring 2200 titles were cross-referenced and tweaked to arrive at this amazing collection that we feel truly represents the best that cinema can offer.
Scroll, contemplate and enjoy.....
KORT! ("short" in Dutch) gives a mix of both beginners/young and more experienced/established screenwriters/filmmakers the chance to make short (stand-alone) fiction films. The films will be screened at the Dutch Film Festival, then online and a year later on television during the so-called evening of the short film.
The NTR (a Dutch public broadcaster), the Dutch Film Fund, the Dutch Cultural Broadcasting Fund and the Co-production Fund Domestic Broadcasting facilitate the production of these short fiction films.

The Messianic Archetype is a character whose role in the story echoes that of Christ. They are portrayed as a savior, whether the thing they are saving is a person, a lot of people or the whole of humanity. They endure a sizable sacrifice as the means of bringing that salvation about for others, a fate they do not deserve up to and including death or a Fate Worse than Death. Other elements may be mixed and matched as required but the Messianic Archetype will include one or more of the following: being the Chosen One, gaining a group of devoted followers, being betrayed by one of these followers, persecution by nonbelievers, parallels to the Passion Play, obvious Crucified Hero Shot, a figurative or literal resurrection, and even a Second Coming. Bonus points if the character has the initials JC.
