  6. Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time's icon

    Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 99:2. I compiled this list from many different polls, lists, and awards, using a weighted point system to rank the shorts. I'm defining short as any film with a runtime of 45 minutes or less. This list focuses more on animation than the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/brief+encounters/]Brief Encounters[/url] list. It includes many acclaimed animated shorts which are missing from Brief Encounters, most notably The Man Who Planted Trees and Ruka. Missing from IMDb: The Magic Fox (1982) (it would've been ranked #132)

  8. 100 Cult Films (BFI Screen Guide)'s icon

    100 Cult Films (BFI Screen Guide)

    Favs/dislikes: 57:0. "Some films should never have been made. They are too unsettling, too dangerous, too challenging, too outrageous and even too badly made to be let loose on unsuspecting audiences. Yet these films, from the shocking Cannibal Holocaust to the apocalyptic Donnie Darko, from the destructive Tetsuo to the awfully bad The Room, from the hilarious This Is Spı¨nal Tap to the campy Showgirls, from the asylum of Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari to the circus of Freaks, from the gangs of The Warriors to the gangsters of In Bruges and from the flamboyant Rocky Horror Picture Show to the ultimate cool of The Big Lebowski, have all garnered passionate fan followings. Cult cinema has made tragic misfits, monsters and cyborgs, such as Edward Scissorhands or Blade Runner's replicants, heroes of our times. 100 Cult Films explains why these figures continue to inspire fans around the globe. Cult film experts Ernest Mathijs and Xavier Mendik round up the most cultish of giallo, blaxploitation, anime, sexploitation, zombie, vampire and werewolf films, exploring both the cults that live hidden inside the underground (Nekromantik, Café Flesh) and the cult side of the mainstream (Dirty Dancing, The Lord of the Rings, and even The Sound of Music). 100 Cult Films is a true trip around the world, providing a lively and illuminating guide to films from more than a dozen countries, across nine decades, representing a wide range of genres and key cult directors such as David Cronenberg, Terry Gilliam and David Lynch."

For each film, the following information is provided: the title, release date, main performers, screenwriter(s), director(s), type of noir, thematic content, a rating based on the five-star system, and a plot synopsis that does not reveal the ending."

  10. Mystery Science Theater 3000 Feature Films's icon

    Mystery Science Theater 3000 Feature Films

    Favs/dislikes: 55:0. This is a list of the films themselves, rather than a list of the episodes (which can be found here: [url]http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/mystery+science+theater+3000/annesemj/[/url]) This list also includes the shorts/documentaries/TV series that appeared.

    Stephen King Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 53:1. The filmography of movies based on the many works from the author Stephen King. All features films, including mini TV series and TV series. No shorts. There is another list based on Stephen King's works here on iCheckmovies. But that list is so incomplete so it was useless for a collector like me.
  12. Bravo’s Scariest Movies's icon

  13. Histoire(s) du cinéma's icon

    Histoire(s) du cinéma

    Favs/dislikes: 47:0. Histoire(s) du cinéma is an 8-part video project begun by Jean-Luc Godard in the late 1980s and completed in 1998. The densest, at 266 minutes the longest, and one of the most difficult of Godard's films, Histoire(s) du cinéma is an examination of the history of the concept of cinema and how it relates to the 20th century; in this sense, it can also be considered a critique of the 20th century and how it perceives itself. The project is considered the longest and most important work of the late period of Godard's career.
  14. Martial arts's icon

    Martial arts

    Favs/dislikes: 46:5. The martial arts top list has been compiled by aggregating a large number of lists on the internet, due to the lack of a definitive martial arts list. Its main focus lies in movies from Asia, the birthplace of martial arts.

    Fantasy Cinema: Impossible Worlds on Screen

    Favs/dislikes: 42:1. From the Short Cuts book [url=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fantasy-Cinema-Impossible-Worlds-Screen/dp/1906660166]Fantasy Cinema: Impossible Worlds on Screen[/url]. [quote]Often dismissed as simple escapist tales of sword and sorcery, fantasy is one of the fundamental impulses in filmmaking, a source of some of the most vivid and memorable films ever made that reaches far beyond the confines of a single genre. As well as some of the major genres, stylistic approaches and exponents of cinematic fantasy - from Georges Méliè̀s, Walt Disney, and Andrei Tarkovsky to contemporary fantasists such as Terry Gilliam and Peter Jackson - this volume focuses on fantasy's social function with case studies including The Thief of Baghdad (1924), Excalibur (1981), the Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001-03), and Bruce Almighty (2003). Taking in the popular and the experimental, subversive desires and reactionary dreams, this book is an accessible introduction to one of the vital energies in cinema. The Short Cuts series is a comprehensive list of introductory texts covering the full spectrum of Film Studies, specifically designed for building an individually-styled library for all students and enthusiasts of cinema and popular culture.[/quote] Three films are considered lost: - La cigale et la fourmi (1897) - La caverne maudite (1898) - Le petit chaperon rouge (1901) [url=https://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Cinema-Impossible-Worlds-Wallflower/dp/1906660166]Source[/url]
