    CFB's 100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films

    Favs/dislikes: 33:1. 100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films: Background This list of 100 important directors of animated short films was assembled in late 2008 to serve as a complement to “Brief Encounters,” a proposed list of 250 great short films (both animated and live-action) which was to be developed by the folks at the They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? website. Unfortunately, that 250-film list is in limbo, leaving our list without a home. The “100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films” list is not intended to be comprehensive. These are simply 100 directors whom we feel are important and deserving of increased recognition by film lovers. For each director, we selected three “highly recommended” movies. In addition, we included a category of “TSPDT 250 Greatest Shorts” to highlight any of these directors’ films which were tentatively slated to place on the abandoned Brief Encounters list. This project was facilitated by Lee Price (lee-109) on the IMDb Classic Film message board. Project team: Lee Price, Robert Reynolds (Illtdesq), Jorge Didaco (jdidaco), Bill Kamberger (bkamberger), and Rob Tomshany (RobT-2), with additional input from animation fans on the IMDb Classic Film message board.

If you like this list, please favourite it. Suggestions are welcome :)

    Movies & TV Shows I've Seen

    Favs/dislikes: 5:9. A list of all the movies I have seen (that I remember...) and TV shows - if a TV show is checked, it means I've watched every season of that particular show. Thanks for checking my list out!

  8. CrimeReads' Korean Noir: A Guide to the Classics's icon

    CrimeReads' Korean Noir: A Guide to the Classics

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "South Korean cinema is a wild, confounding hydra. There is the art house fare winning accolades at international festivals; the steady flow of mainstream, industry-approved movies filling theaters; and the boundless riches of a genre cinema that never ceases to astound. Of course, these types of movies most assuredly overlap as well. South Korean crime films, in particular, are an arsenic-laced delight. Expect investigations proceeding on rainslick streets at night; elaborately choreographed gun duels and all-out brawls with everyday items; and entangled relationships among friends, lovers, and enemies. That’s not all; these tales of crime and woe frequently mutate, becoming something else, mixing their DNA with strands of action, thrillers, police procedurals, comedy, and that staple of Korean cinema: melodrama. By the new millenium, Korean crime films became stranger, bloodier, and more uncontainable, rivaling Hong Kong and Japan for singular genre output. This survey is simply a guide, a sample platter of the delectable works in Korean film history. It shines a spotlight on both landmark films and deepcuts from the 1950s to the ‘00s."
  9. Full Length Movies Free on Youtube's icon

    Full Length Movies Free on Youtube

    Favs/dislikes: 57:4. The film has to be available in descent-good quality and in only one youtube link. I like suggestions!!! It changes constantly, so forgive me! And check the official free movies section of youtube!

  11. Toronto International Film Festival - People's Choice Award's icon

    Toronto International Film Festival - People's Choice Award

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is the leading public film festival in the world, bringing the power of film to life each September. Starting out in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals - a "festival of festivals" - the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most beloved cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work. It has been described as "the most important film festival in the world - the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive." * The major prize, the People's Choice Award, is given to a feature-length film with the highest ratings as voted by the TIFF-going populace. * Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail, September 3, 2005.

  14. British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)'s icon

    British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)

    Favs/dislikes: 34:0. "This work presents 369 British films produced between 1937 and 1964 that embody many of the same filmic qualities as those "black films" made in the United States during the classic film noir era. This reference work makes a case for the inclusion of the British films in the film noir canon, which is still considered by some to be an exclusively American inventory. The following information is presented: a quotation from the film; title and release date; a one- to five-star rating; production company, director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and main performers; and a plot synopsis with commentary. Appendices categorize films by rating, release date, director and cinematographer and also provide a noir and non-noir breakdown of the 47 films presented on the Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre, a 1960 British television series." NOTE: I created this list in May 2012 and had to add well over 75 titles to iCM, suggesting that there are many obscurities worth checking out. Keaney included 26 of the 47 Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre "films" into this work that he considered to be film noirs or at the very least marginal noirs. The remaining 21 "films" were not included. Keaney's ratings: #1-4: ★★★★★ #5-15: ★★★★½ #16-42: ★★★★ #43-85: ★★★½ #86-150: ★★★ #151-234: ★★½ #235-312: ★★ #313-339: ★½ #340-341: ★ #342-369: "Not reviewed" (since they were not available at the time of writing). Michael F. Keaney is a fan of classic movies and the author of "Film Noir Guide". ISBN: 978-0-7864-6427-2

  16. Ebert's Original 100 Great Movies's icon

    Ebert's Original 100 Great Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 25:0. Below is a subset of Roger Ebert's list of great films containing only those in his book "The Great Movies", published in 2002. The Apu Trilogy, Decalogue, and Up Documentaries are all broken out separately, hence more than 100 listings. An excerpt from Ebert's introduction to the book: "They are not 'the' 100 greatest films of all time, because all lists of great movies are a foolish attempt to codify works which must stand alone. But it's fair to say: If you want to make a tour of the landmarks of the first century of cinema, start here."
  17. Il Cinema Ritrovato 2019's icon

    Il Cinema Ritrovato 2019

    The First Century of Film

    Favs/dislikes: 11:1. The best movies of the 20th century as shown by the cinema Filmpodium in Zurich, Switzerland. The project lasts from 2011 to 2020. In each of the 10 years during this retrospective the best movies of the years with the corresponding end number are shown: in 2011 those were the films of the years 1911, 1921, 1931 up to 1991. At the end of the project in 2020 there will be a list of about 500 of the very best movies of the first century of cinema. You'll find the program of the actual month at their website www.filmpodium.ch. Original title of this series is: Das erste Jahrhundert des Films.
  19. Agatha Christie Film Adaptations's icon

    Agatha Christie Film Adaptations

    Favs/dislikes: 19:1. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Agatha Christie is the best-selling novelist of all time with over 4 billion copies in print. In 1955 Christie was the first recipient of the Grand Master Award, the highest honor of the Mystery Writers of America. There have been numerous television movies and series based on her work, but this list is restricted to feature films. Most follow the exploits of Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, and all are sorted by year of release.
  20. 15 Great Movies That Nail The Way Young People Navigate Relationships Nowadays's icon

    15 Great Movies That Nail The Way Young People Navigate Relationships Nowadays

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Though times have immensely changed over the course of the 15 years of the new millennia, Hollywood rom-coms are not the most adaptive of genres, and so the conventions and worldviews of films depicting relationships haven’t exactly kept up with these changes. The movies in this list are honorable exceptions, and it’s no coincidence that most of them were made by young, talented writers and directors.
  21. Mike Leigh Films's icon

    Mike Leigh Films

    Favs/dislikes: 33:0. All the films (and tv movies) of the great English director Mike Leigh. I'd say he's my favourite director, I just have a strong personal connection with so many of his films and characters. I've seen all his features except Bleak Moments, his debut. Look out for his next feature called Mr. Turner, due for release in 2014. Starring long term collaborator and fantastic actor, Timothy Spall in the title role.
  22. Submissions to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film's icon

    Submissions to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. This is a list of submissions to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has invited the film industries of various countries to submit their best film for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film every year since the award was created in 1956. The award is presented annually by the Academy to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue. The Foreign Language Film Award Committee oversees the process and reviews all the submitted films. Nine shortlisted contenders will be revealed a week before the announcement of the Oscar nominations. This list is made from the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_submissions_to_the_86th_Academy_Awards_for_Best_Foreign_Language_Film If you find any errors, please inform me. UPDATE: Thank you for the comments. I have added the missing movies and replaced one that was disqualified. The list should be correct now, but fell free to contact me if you find errors. For details on what was added and removed, please see comments section.
