    "Cult Movies in Sixty Seconds" by Soren McCarthy

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. "Presenting the information movie fans need about those films that the insiders seem to know and love, this handy guide to cult flicks offers perceptive and entertaining entries containing an outline of the plot, characters, and themes; insight into why the film is considered a classic; and essential little-known facts. Featuring such favorites as Barbarella, Betty Blue, Harold and Maude, Roger and Me, The Wickerman, and Withnail and I, this book highlights the best films from more than 50 years of movie making. Also explored are the qualities that make a film a cult movie and whether a film can be both cult and a box office hit."
  2. Kenneth Turan's Not to be Missed: Fifty-four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film's icon

    Kenneth Turan's Not to be Missed: Fifty-four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. "Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times since 1991 and a regular contributor of reviews to NPR, approaches movies, as did the late Roger Ebert, on their own terms, trying to understand what a filmmaker is trying to do and assessing a movie’s success or failure in light of its maker’s intent. This book isn’t a collection of film reviews per se; it’s a look at Turan’s personal favorites, which range from the easily recognizable (The Godfather, All about Eve, Casablanca, Unforgiven, Vertigo) to the for-­devoted-film-fans-only (The Dybbuk, Seven Men from Now, The Best of Youth). "
  3. Mark Cousins's The Story of Film: An Odyssey's icon

The series provides a worldwide guided tour of the greatest movies ever made; an epic tale that starts in nickelodeons and ends as a multi-billion-dollar globalised digital industry." Note: "Motion Capture Mirrors Emotion (2009) dir. Jorge Ribas," a documentary about the making of Avatar, is missing because it does not appear to have an imdb page.

    Favs/dislikes: 53:14. All the comedies mentioned in the filmography of the book "Film Comedy" by Geoff King, published in 2002. "From slapstick to satire and subtle innuendo. From the grotesque to the carefully mannered. From madcap anarchy to the darkly deadpan. Film comedy comes in a wide range of forms. For as long as film has existed as an entertainment medium, so has film comedy. ... Comedy was one of the most popular formats in the early years of cinema and has remained so ever since."

    BBC's The 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 48:1. So this year BBC Culture decided to get serious about comedy. We asked 253 film critics – 118 women and 135 men – from 52 countries and six continents a simple: “What do you think are the 10 best comedies of all time?” Films from any country made since cinema was invented were eligible, and BBC Culture did nothing to define in advance what a comedy is; we left that to each of the critics to decide. As always, we urged the experts to go with their heart and pick personal favourites, films that are part of their lives, not just the ones that meet some ideal of greatness. List added August 2017

  15. Time Out's The 101 Best Action Movies Ever Made's icon

    Time Out's The 101 Best Action Movies Ever Made

    Favs/dislikes: 37:0. "They get a bad rap from snobs, but don’t mess with action movies—they’re pumped up, loaded with ammo and in your face like Arnold Schwarzenegger on a bad day. Truth be told, no one can live solely on Woody Allen movies or animation alone. We need explosions periodically. Big ones. Preferably accompanied by catchphrases and squealing electric guitars. With crucial contributions from Hong Kong and France, the genre has a global richness that sneaks up on you like a swarthy henchman with a knife clenched between his teeth. And when we arrived at action’s ’80s movies heyday, when Hollywood stars ruled the roost, our research was euphoric. We’ve polled over 50 experts in the field, from essential directors like Die Hard’s John McTiernan to the actual folks in the line of fire, such as Machete himself, Danny Trejo. Critics and experts have weighed in, too." The list has 102 titles because Kill Bill was counted as one entry.

  16. 1001 movies you must see before you die (all editions)'s icon

    1001 movies you must see before you die (all editions)

    Favs/dislikes: 143:1. The famous book of Schneider "1001 movies you must see before you die" has several editions. Every few years a new edition is published with new titles (after removing some other titles). Also there are editions especially for a certain country with additional titles from that country. In this list I'll try to collect as many titles as possible that were in at least one edition of this book. So far I included, apart from the original US editions (rank 1-1240), the Dutch (rank 1241-1251), the Swedish (rank 1252-1273), the Greek (rank 1274-1315), the Norwegian (rank 1316-1322), the Finnish (rank 1323-1341), the Danish (rank 1342-1353), the Brazilian (rank 1354-1364), the Hungarian (rank 1365-1370) and the French (rank 1371-1387) editions. I found information about the Portuguese, Spanish, Slovanian, Croatian, Turkish and Polish editions, but these didn't have additional titles. I’ll search for more editions. If you’ve got information about any other, please let me know.
  17. House of Psychotic Women: Compendium of Female Neurosis's icon

    House of Psychotic Women: Compendium of Female Neurosis

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. Every film listed in the appendix of Kier-La Janisse's 2012 memoir "House of Psychotic Women." From the book: "[…]while by no means comprehensive, this appendix is a cross-section of horror and violent exploitation films that feature disturbed or neurotic women as primary or pivotal characters […] Admittedly some films stretch genre definitions, and others fall completely outside of the centre but are nonetheless important progenitors for genre characterizations."

  22. BBC's The 21st Century's 100 Greatest Films's icon

    BBC's The 21st Century's 100 Greatest Films

    Favs/dislikes: 122:2. For our poll to determine the 100 greatest American films, we surveyed 62 film critics from around the world. This time, we received responses from 177 – from every continent except Antarctica. Some are newspaper or magazine reviewers, others write primarily for websites; academics and cinema curators are well-represented too. For the purposes of this poll we have decided that a list of the greatest films of the 21st Century should include the year 2000, even though we recognise that there was no ‘Year Zero’ and that 2001 is mathematically the start of the century. Not only did we all celebrate the turn of the millennium on 31 December 1999, but the year 2000 was a landmark in global cinema, and, in particular, saw the emergence of new classics from Asia like nothing we had ever seen before.
