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.
"This list of films is supposed to be a representative sample of the kinds of films that are produced and consumed in South Asia and elsewhere. It formed part of bfi's South Asian Cinema 2002 programme designed to present to the British public for the first time the immense diversity of South Asian cinema."
This is the list that was compiled by experts. BFI also ran a [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/bfi+south+asian+top+50+-+readers+poll/sienel/]user poll[/url].
The list is divided into 5 sections:
41-50: Sri Lankan
"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."
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.
Following an idea suggested by [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/profiles/wowwee123/]wowwee123[/url] This is a list of every film on at least 3 official lists.
I was hoping to make a list of every official check, but such a list is too large for the site, so we'll have to settle for multiple lists:
[url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/films+on+at+least+3+official+lists/peacefulanarchy/]Films on at least 3 official lists[/url]
[url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/films+on+exactly+2+official+lists/peacefulanarchy/]Films on exactly 2 official lists[/url]
[url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/films+on+1+official+list+part1/peacefulanarchy/]Films on 1 official list Part1[/url]

Greatest Italian films according to 109 critics/scholars and 50 filmmakers.
Note - this entry is just for one segment of an anthology film:
Ro.Go.Pa.G = La ricotta (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1963)
This is a weighted version of the iCM Most Favorite list, using the formula "favorites / (checks+50)", the same formula that the official list currently uses.
The [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/]official Most Favorite[/url] list is based on incorrect fav counts (due to a bug). This list uses accurate data from Dec 20 (from the beta site), so I'm posting this list as a temporary solution until the bug is fixed.
Edit: The bug was fixed on Jan 23, and as of Jan 26 the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/]official list[/url] is based on accurate data. I will be keeping this list on iCM for historical purposes (so you can see what the list looked like in December 2011).
The Golden Leopard is the top prize at the Locarno International Film Festival, held annually in Locarno, Switzerland since 1946. Directors in the process of getting an international reputation are allowed to be entered in the competitive selection. The winning films are chosen by a jury. The award went under many names until it was named the Golden Leopard in 1968.

"I think that a film should have a good story, a clear story, and it should have, if possible, something which is probably the most difficult thing - it should have a little bit of magic...Magic being untouchable and very difficult to cast, you can't deal with it at all. You can only try to prepare some nests, hoping that a little bit of magic will slide into them."
This is my own compilation of the most acclaimed films of all time. My methodology is a bit different from TSPDT's. The main difference is that I'm giving a lot more weight to country and continent lists. I'm also using a much smaller number of lists because I'm only using lists that I like. This compilation is currently based on 71 lists.
Obviously, It's a discricionary list based on what I saw and liked it , but I think most of the films are agreed to be good. Many great films I haven't seen are missing that I hope to discover someday.
I may ignore entries from constantly updated lists.
edit: Since I had created the list I removed over 70 films after additions and updates of official lists. It seems that my choices aren't so bad after all. Hopefully, the list is not lowering the quality with my news choices.
