    OFCS's Top 100 Animated Features of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 153:13. 138 reviewers of the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), the international association of the leading Internet-based cinema journalists, selected the Top 100 Animated Features of All Time. The lsit was compiled from a reminder list of more than 350 feature films (not including animated short films), spanning the years from the 1926 silent film The Adventures of Prince Achmed to recent release Treasure Planet.

  2. Anthology Film Archives's Essential Cinema's icon

    Anthology Film Archives's Essential Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 75:5. A very special series of films screened on a repertory basis, the Essential Cinema Repertory collection consists of programs of shorts and hundreds of features assembled in 1970-75 by Anthology’s Film Selection Committee – James Broughton, Ken Kelman, Peter Kubelka, P. Adams Sitney, and Jonas Mekas. It was an ambitious attempt to define the art of cinema. The project was never completed but even in its unfinished state the series provides an uncompromising critical overview of cinema’s history. The titles are still being screened under the brand of "Essential Cinema". Now and then additional titles are added to the collection.

    BFI's 100 Animated Feature Films

    Favs/dislikes: 162:4. This list is from Andrew Osmond's book [url=http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk/acatalog/info_17635.html]100 Animated Feature Films[/url] (2011). "Andrew Osmond provides an entertaining and illuminating guide to the endlessly diverse styles, cultures, and visions of the genre, with entires on 100 of the most interesting and important animated films from around the world, from the 1920s to the present day."

  4. Cahiers du Cinéma's Annual Top 10 Lists's icon

    Cahiers du Cinéma's Annual Top 10 Lists

    Favs/dislikes: 246:4. Cahiers du cinéma is an influential French film magazine founded in 1951. The magazine has picked its top ten films of the year, most years. Top ten films were not picked in the years 1952-1954, 1969-1980, and in the year 2003. Rankings can be viewed in my source list URL, or via the link provided in the comments section. In some cases, films tie for a certain spot in the yearly top 10; for example, 2012's #4 spot is tied between three films (consequently, there is no #5 or #6). Some directors definitely appear to be heavily preferred by those responsible for selecting the list. This list does not include the special "best of 1990s" and "best of 2000s" decade lists, though most of those twenty films are included here. (The exceptions are David Lynch's TV show Twin Peaks on the 1990s list, and Gus Van Sant's Elephant, Abdellatif Kechiche's The Secret of the Grain, and Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds on the 2000s decade list.) Other anomalies: The TV show "24" tied for the #10 spot in 2002, along with Gus Van Sant's Gerry. Gerry also tied for #6 on the 2004 list. A TV episode "Travolta et moi" (dir. Patricia Mazuy) from the show "Tous les garçons et les filles de leur âge..." was selected as #6 in 1994. Claire Denis' episode "US Go Home" from the same series rated #9 in 1994. Raul Ruiz's Les trois couronnes du matelot (Three Crowns of the Sailor) tied for #7 in 1983 and tied for #8 in 1982. 1968's #4 spot for Histoires extraordinaires is specifically for Federico Fellini's segment "Toby Damnit." 1965's #4 spot for Paris vu par... is specifically for the Jean Rouch episode. 1959's #3 spot was claimed by Eisenstein's Ivan the Terrible. Since Part II was released in 1958, it is possible that the award was for Part II, but since my sources didn't specify a part and both parts may have been shown together, I have included Parts I & II in the list. Love it or hate it, here it is... [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cahiers_du_cin%C3%A9ma%27s_Annual_Top_10_Lists]Source[/url]

    The Criterion Collection

    Favs/dislikes: 780:4. Since 1984, the Criterion Collection, has been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements for a wider and wider audience. The foundation of the collection is the work of such masters of cinema as Kurosawa, Fellini, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Hitchcock, and Kubrick.

  7. 100 All-Time Best Movies for History Buffs's icon

    100 All-Time Best Movies for History Buffs

    Favs/dislikes: 55:3. History isn’t marked by years, but events. Being a history buff means looking at the way major ideas or happenings played out and how they had an effect on everything from politics to the economy. War, invention, discovery, love: the history of the world has been shaped by the way we deal with these things. The movies on this list are great ways to take a closer look at the moments that changed history. [b]NOTE[/b]: The list is constructed out of seven minor lists, as noted below: #01 - 13: Ancient History #14 - 29: Medieval Times #30 - 46: Exploration & Colonization #47 - 53: The American Revolution #54 - 68: The American Civil War #69 - 81: World War II #82 - 100: The 20th Century

  15. The Criterion Collection's Eclipse Series's icon

    The Criterion Collection's Eclipse Series

    Favs/dislikes: 127:2. Eclipse from the Criterion Collection is a brand for a line of DVD film series released by the Criterion Collection. It debuted on March 27, 2007. The brand was created to produce budget-priced, high-quality DVD editions of hard-to-find films. The DVDs are released in boxed sets that typically contain between two to seven films across and focus on a specific film director. Future sets will also focus on themes. Typically, they are released monthly. In order to keep prices low, the films do not receive the same degree of remastering nor any of the special features that have became associated with Criterion Collection titles.

  16. 100 Silent Films (BFI Screen Guide)'s icon

    100 Silent Films (BFI Screen Guide)

    Favs/dislikes: 40:1. "100 Silent Films provides an authoritative and accessible history of silent cinema through one hundred of its most interesting and significant films. As Bryony Dixon contends, silent cinema is not a genre; it is the first 35 years of film history, a complex negotiation between art and commerce and a union of creativity and technology. At its most grand – on the big screen with a full orchestral accompaniment – it is magnificent, permitting a depth of emotional engagement rarely found in other fields of cinema. Silent film was hugely popular in its day, and its success enabled the development of large-scale film production in the United States and Europe. It was the start of our fascination with the moving image as a disseminator of information and as mass entertainment with its consequent celebrity culture."
