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.
USA Up All Night (also known as Up All Night and Up All Night with Rhonda Shear) is an American cable television series that aired weekly on Friday and Saturday nights on the USA Network. The show aired from 1989 to 1998.
The program consisted of low-budget films, bookended by in-studio or on-location comedy skits featuring the show's hosts. In addition to skits, the hosts would also provide sardonic comments about the featured film(s), and observations on various Hollywood- and/or New York City-area clubs and attractions (when the series was shooting out of studio). Including commercials, the program typically ran from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Inspired by the chronological charting of film, and the vast history of world cinema, as presented by Mark Cousin's superb 'A Story of Film: An Odyssey', I have decided to make 2012 the year where I finally get to watch those recognised classics and take a bite out of the canon.
Follow me as I take on the world of cinema from the silent era to the explosion of the talkies, through the golden age of Hollywood to the uprising of new wave cinema across Europe and worldwide, the uprising of the movie brats to the dawn of independent film making right through to the current digital boom.
This list will constantly be updated throughout the year.

The BFI Film Classics series is a collection of short books analysing major works of world cinema. Volumes in this series have been assembled by some of the world's leading film critics. The first volumes in the series were published in 1992 and new entries continue to be added every year.
From a book published in 1962 titled Classics of the Foreign Film, A Pictorial Treasury by Parker Tyler
"Out of thousands of films from abroad from "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" to the present, one of the nation's leading film authorities selects seventy-five he considers the greatest. With a perceptive commentary and hundreds of carefully selected photographs."
77 films are listed because the author included Olympia and Ivan the Terrible as single entries.
Ok, so... this is a fan list, i don't mean to say that number 1 is for sure the best movie between those listed.
It's just a preference, some i liked them more than others, so please don't brag about it, and why not, comment if you want.

It was supposed to be a simple 366 day challenge, but I turned it into a list of classics and quality films I haven't seen yet. Each month has a different theme, in order to educate myself in different genres and countries and auteur's.
