    The B List: The National Society of Film Critics on the Low-Budget Beauties, Genre-Bending Mavericks, and Cult Classics We Love

    Favs/dislikes: 33:0. "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'."

  13. Laputa Animation Festival's 150 Best Animations of All Time (modified version)'s icon

    Laputa Animation Festival's 150 Best Animations of All Time (modified version)

    Favs/dislikes: 26:0. At the 2003 Laputa Animation Festival, 140 animation artists and film critics from around the world listed their 20 favorite animations. They used these lists to create a top 150 list and published the list in a [url=http://www.amazon.co.jp/世界と日本のアニメーションベスト150/dp/4893933671]book[/url]. This is not exactly the same as the original list because I made a few changes. The original list includes series of shorts (some of which include more than 100 shorts). Each short is listed separately on IMDb. I'm including only the most acclaimed short from each series (or the 1st short if they are equally acclaimed). I'm including the 1980 version of The King and the Mockingbird because it's the complete version of the film (the book specifies the original version, but I'm guessing that both versions received votes and then they combined them). The Overcoat (Shinel) is an unfinished film.

  14. Harvard University's Suggested Film Viewing List: Animated Films (2012)'s icon

    Harvard University's Suggested Film Viewing List: Animated Films (2012)

    Favs/dislikes: 58:0. This list is "an educational resource that offers guidance and encouragement as students seek to find points of orientation within the vast history of film and video." It is not a list of the best films of all time. Rather, it reflects a variety of criteria. The list is divided into 5 sections: I. [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+narrative+films+2012/]Narrative Films[/url] [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+hollywood+genres+2012/mjf314/]Hollywood Genres (with an emphasis on the classical studio era)[/url] II. [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+non-fiction+films+2012/]Non-Fiction Films[/url] III. [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+animated+films+2012/mjf314/]Animated Films[/url] IV. [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+experimentalslashavant-gardeslashunderground+films+2012/mjf314/]Experimental/Avant-garde/Underground Films[/url] V. [url=https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/harvard+universitys+suggested+film+viewing+list+single-channel+video+2012/mjf314/]Single-channel Video[/url] According to the list source, this section is incomplete (i.e. they're planning to expand it in the future). This section focuses mostly on short films. Only 8 of them are feature-length. 3 of the list items are "A ___ cartoon" (Roadrunner, Tom and Jerry, Woody Woodpecker). This means you have to watch at least one, but it's not important which one. On this list I included only the most acclaimed cartoon from each series. The list includes only the "Mirror People" segment of Fantastic Animation Festival.
