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.
The Movie Book (Phaidon, 1999) is an A-Z guide to 500 celebrated individuals who have made a landmark contribution to the medium of film. Packed with absorbing details and rich with history, all genres of cinema are included - from Hollywood blockbusters to French New Wave, from groundbreaking science-fiction films to animation classics, and from screwball comedies to film-noir thrillers.
This is a travel movies list that contains all road trip movies ever made as well as movies that concern the roadtrip/backpacking/going-to-foreign-country concept. It is a complete list of all road films, family road movies, cross country road comedies, backpacking, and travelling in general. I'm open to more suggestions, the more, the merrier.
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.
Unconventional films where the characters tend to obtain peculiar characteristics, habits, mannerisms, and/or personalities.
This collection includes eccentric, bizarre, far out, idiosyncratic, odd, off-the-wall, out of the ordinary, outre, peculiar, strange, unconventional, unorthodox, unusual, wacky, way-out, and weird films.
If you like this list, please favourite it. Suggestions are welcome :)
A list mainly of movies whose central focus is drama, though some movies here have elements of suspense or humor as well, such as thrillers, action movies and comedy-dramas. To give prominence to a diverse variety of styles and more room to a greater number of directors, only one movie per series will appear here. The installment selected is the one I hold the highest, representing the series as a whole. So you'll only find one Godfather movie here, for example.
The choice of which I rank highest changes with time. Also, there are many lauded films I've yet to see and new releases mean new entries, so the list will be revised regularly. The list will however consistently reveal my fondness for adventure movies and film noir. It's also telling that non-English speaking movies are excluded, reflecting the important role English-language movies have played in film history. Out of the acclaimed non-English speaking movies I've seen, I'd place many near the top, but to add them and leave out classics I haven't seen would be to make an incomplete list. As it is, this list focuses on the movies in English that struck a chord with me. Feel free to recommend new titles!
A list of the science fiction movies I appreciate the most. Obscure or polarizing features get the same attention as cinema classics, and tones are mixed, with upbeat movies sharing space with those that have a darker tone. Similarly, there's an equal representation of stories that are mainly emotionally engaging and those more intellectually stimulating.
Here are my guidelines, which you can skip, unless you feel I have some explaining to do....
Those ranked from 1-50, I've rated 10 or 9 (I believe in generosity!). My rating of most of the other movies here tends to be 8, though around 50 entries at the bottom have a lower rating, though none lower than 6. Also, only 1-100 are carefully arranged according to how highly I hold them. After that, titles appear in a rough ranking order.
The list contains no animated or non-English movies, as I've seen too few of those to give them a fair inclusion. Nor does it include comedies or titles which arguably belong to other genres, such as fantasy, horror or superhero movies. To give prominence to diversity, the list only includes the best installment of each franchise, representing the series as a whole, and to give more room to original ideas, only unique remakes and reboot films qualify.
American Film Institute (AFI) defines science fiction as “a genre that marries a scientific or technological premise with imaginative speculation.” I'd like to add that the genre deals with hypothetical yet scientifically possible events that humanity so far hasn’t experienced, for example the event shown in Gravity, or technology used in ways that yet hasn't happened, such as in The Martian. Also, the definition requires that a scientific explanation is presented for what takes place within the frame of a story. Hence, stories dealing with magic or other supernatural elements can be ruled out.
Horror movies tend to take sequels and remakes to unprecedented lengths. How many films in other genres can boast eleven sequels and a remake, for example? Though some are good and some are decidedly not, one thing is for sure; they just keep coming.
I've decided to count only series consisting of at least three films (as of the end of 2013). Also, I've excluded older series than 1960. Simply to narrow it down. For now.
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.
Shorts remarkably not included in the IMDb:
Rat (Roel Boorsma & Berend Boorsma)
Salt-battle (Ron Termaat)
11:59 (Johan Kramer)
Dialoogoefening (Esther Rots)
De laatste dag (Saskia Diesing)
Ruwe honing (Annick Vroom)
Salto Mortale (Vincent Schuurman)
Telefilms are Dutch films made specifically for Public Broadcasting. The films deal with current social issues.
The aim of the project is to stimulate cooperation between the film industry and broadcasters and to promote homegrown drama productions among the Dutch public. There are six films produced annually (none in 2000 and nine in 2001). Several films won national and international film awards.
The Telefilms are established with financial support from the Ministry of Education and the Co-production Fund Domestic Broadcasting.
