"These are a few of the over 100 films discussed in Midnight Movies, a comprehensive and in-depth look at the subculture movies of the past three decades. Here is the complete history of cult films, their makers, and their audience; an examination of how films become "midnight movies," and what keeps audiences coming back to see them over and over; an exploration of the connections between subversive film and the subcultures from which it emerges."

This is a list of the one hundred and one films listed in the book "100 norske filmer du må se" (100 Norwegian films you must see), edited by Gunn E. Schmidt, published in 2008.
The list is first and foremost a presentation of lots of evidence that Norwegian film is better than it's reputation.
"'Cult Movies' is a 1981 book by Danny Peary, consisting of a series of essays regarding what Peary described as the 100 most representative examples of the cult film phenomenon. Two sequels were published, Cult Movies 2 (1983) and Cult Movies 3 (1988), with each book reviewing fifty additional cult films."
"Parker Tyler (1904-1974), one of the few great American film critics, was intimate with and enormously respected by many of the underground and experimental filmmakers of his time. In this book, Tyler evaluated the Underground in general and the seminal films in particular, covering the history and scope of the genre with insight and verve."

"Once the B movie was the Hollywood stepchild, the underbelly of the double feature. Today it is a more inclusive category, embracing films that fall outside the mainstream by dint of their budgets, their visions, their grit, and occasionally—sometimes essentially—their lack of what the culture cops call 'good taste'."
Compiled by Edward Margulies and Stephen Rebello, the caustically clever authors of Movieline magazine’s popular feature “Bad Movies We Love”, this outrageous 1993 book leaves no stone (including Sharon) unturned as it skewers some of Hollywood’s biggest big-budget film fiascos ever and the stars and filmmakers who made it all happen.
List compiled from the "Filmography" section of Vito Russo's landmark book "The Celluloid Closet" (first published in 1981, revised edition published in 1987).

"100 Anime is an exploration of the wonderfully complex and beautifully disorienting world of Japanese animation - anime. This expansive and mind-blowing book delves deep into the chaos of meaning gorged by anime's mutation of Eastern/Western themes, images and sounds."
This is not a list of the "100 Greatest Anime." Some of the titles were selected in order to analyze Japanese pop culture and to show how vast the world of anime is. The list is in alphabetical order.

This list is from Stephen Cavalier's book [url=http://www.amazon.com/World-History-Animation-Stephen-Cavalier/dp/0520261127]The World History of Animation[/url] (2011).
The book starts with an introduction and brief histories of world animation, with a list of key films for each continent. The rest of the book is a chronological time line of films, with information about each film as well as biographies and explanations of animation techniques.
This is the chronological time line. I'm including only the films that have their own section, not all of the films mentioned within the text. For series of shorts, I included only the 1st from each series.

Published in 2004. Book description:
"Defining “gay perspective” is no easy task, but author Don Reuter has created a star-studded tribute to the Hollywood moments that give gay culture its own saucy language. Collecting the most memorable one-liners, gender benders, tearjerkers, nail-biters, and heart stoppers from the world’s most celebrated picture shows, "Fabulous!" is a campy, fun-filled companion to the movies that gay men love. Hilarious, witty, thoughtful, and always surprising, "Fabulous!" is the absolute source for all things gay in cinema."
This list includes all films covered in the book, starting with the "75 Fabulous! Films", followed by "Also Playing!", "Top Ten Gay Films" and "Additional Viewing".
"The past thirty years have seen the proliferation of forms of independent cinema that challenge the conventions of mass-market commercial movies from within the movie theatre. Avant-Garde Film examines fifteen of the most suggestive and useful films from this film tradition."
