  1. 100 Must-See Movies 's icon

    100 Must-See Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 1:1. It is always a challenge to produce a definitive list of “must- see” movies, because value judgments are, by definition, extremely subjective. However, the 100 handpicked films in this section have delighted, moved or educated audiences of all ages, all over the world. Over the last nine decades, these films have changed our perceptions of cinema, and most have left an indelible mark on film history.

    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.

  12. 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.
  13. AIWFF’s Best 100 Films on Women in Arab Cinema's icon

    AIWFF’s Best 100 Films on Women in Arab Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. Aswan International Women's Film Festival was founded in 2017 by Egyptian screenwriter Mohamed Abdel Khalek and has quickly become one of Egypt's premier film events. On it's 5th edition they announced a list of the 100 best films on women throughout the history of Egyptian and Arab cinema, chosen by 70 Egyptian and Arab film critics.
  14. Alain Bergala's "The 208 Films That You Must Have Seen"'s icon

    Alain Bergala's "The 208 Films That You Must Have Seen"

    Favs/dislikes: 36:0. This list was compiled by French film critic and historian Alain Bergala, which he distributes to students upon their orientation at the Paris Film Academy, La Fémis. This version of his list was handed out in 2010. The list is not a compilation of the best films nor the most important ones, but was designed merely as a starting point for prospective filmmakers and students to learn about the history of cinema. One film a week for the duration of their four-year program.
  15. Alan Clarke Filmography's icon

    Alan Clarke Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "It is a rare director who is at once one of the foremost stylists and pioneering realists of cinema, but Alan Clarke falls into both categories. His relentless and innovative examination of contemporary British society, paired with the integrity of his approach, makes him an exemplar for socially conscious filmmaking[...] Clarke’s ability to direct so often and his low critical profile today stem from the same reason: his films were for television, where a weekly feature slot meant numerous directing opportunities and instant ubiquity during transmission[...]" (Nicholas Rapold, Senses of Cinema)
  16. Alice In Videoland's 100 Greatest Films of All Time's icon

    Alice In Videoland's 100 Greatest Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. The only way to make a list of The 100 Greatest Films of All Time is to look at what has come before. So, a decision was made to review a selection of lists made by respected critics and others from around the globe. The commonality of these choices has helped form Alice's overall selection. The most famous poll since 1952 is Sight & Sound magazine's compilation, whereby every 10 years the world's leading film critics and directors are asked for their top 10 choices. Other sources utilised include the AFI (American Film Institute), the BFI (British Film Institute), the National Society of Film Critics, Cahiers du Cinema, Time, Time Out, Empire and so on. In all, 22 Top 100 lists featuring 2200 titles were cross-referenced and tweaked to arrive at this amazing collection that we feel truly represents the best that cinema can offer. Scroll, contemplate and enjoy.....

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. From the book Nightmare USA: The Untold Story of the Exploitation Independents by Stephen Thrower. (Not complete but will be whenever I stop being lazy, there's just a lot of stuff to add to ICM and...I'm lazy.)

  20. Avant-Garde Film - Motion Studies's icon

    Avant-Garde Film - Motion Studies

    Favs/dislikes: 21:0. In this book, Scott MacDonald examines 15 of the most suggestive and useful avant-garde films. Through in-depth readings of these works, MacDonald takes viewers on a critical circumnavigation of the conventions of moviegoing as seen by filmmakers who have rebelled against the conventions. MacDonald's discussions do not merely analyze the films; they provide a useful, accessible, jargon-free critical apparatus for viewing avant-garde film, which communicates the author's pleasure in exploring "impenetrable" works with students and public audiences. The book is divided into three sections ("From Stern to Film", "Psychic Excursions" and "Premonitions of a Global Cinema") with five films in each section. ISBN: 978-0-521-38821-4
  21. AWFJ’s Top 100 Films List's icon

    AWFJ’s Top 100 Films List

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The Tenth Anniversary of AFI's 100 Greatest Movies List got us to thinking, especially when we noticed that of 400 films nominated for AFI's list, only 4.5 were directed by women. We thought it would be interesting and fun to see whether AWFJ members– a diverse group of strongly opinionated and outspoken professional women film journalists who care passionately about the movies and industry they cover– would develop a list substantially different AFI's. The result, presented in alphabetical order, is an eclectic, perhaps somewhat surprising, collection of titles. It's neither politically nor academically correct, and it's far from definitive.
  22. BFI's 100 Bible Films's icon

    BFI's 100 Bible Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From The Passion of the Christ to Life of Brian, and from The Ten Commandments to Last Temptation of Christ, filmmakers have been adapting the stories of the Bible for over 120 years, from the first time the Höritz Passion Play was filmed in the Czech Republic back in 1897. Ever since, these stories have inspired musicals, comedies, sci-fi, surrealist visions and the avant-garde not to mention spawning their own genre, the biblical epic. Filmmakers across six continents and from all kinds of religious perspectives (or none at all), have adapted the greatest stories ever told, delighting some and infuriating others. 100 Bible Films is the indispensable guide to this wide and varied output, providing an authoritative but accessible history of biblical adaptations through one hundred of the most interesting and significant biblical films. Richly illustrated with film stills, this book depicts how such films have undertaken a complex negotiation between art, commerce, entertainment and religion. Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.
  23. Black Film Archive's icon

    Black Film Archive

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. ABOUT THE SITE Black Film Archive celebrates the rich, abundant history of Black cinema. We are an evolving archive dedicated to making historically and culturally significant films made from 1898 to 1989 about Black people accessible through a streaming guide with cultural context. HOW DOES BLACK FILM ARCHIVE DEFINE A BLACK FILM? The films collected on Black Film Archive have something significant to say about the Black experience; speak to Black audiences; and/or have a Black star, writer, producer, or director. This criterion for selection is as broad and inclusive as possible, allowing the site to cover the widest range of what a Black film can be. The films listed here should be considered in conversation with each other, as visions of Black being on film across time. They express what only film can: social, anthropological, and aesthetic looks at the changing face of Black expression (or white attitudes about Black expression, which are inescapable given the whiteness of decision-makers in the film industry). ABOUT THE CURATOR Maya S. Cade is the creator and curator of Black Film Archive and a scholar-in-residence at the Library of Congress. She has been awarded special distinctions by the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Society of Film Critics for the Archive. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Paris Review, Vulture, among other publications. She is the fall 2022 programmer in residence at Indiana University’s Cinema and was the fall 2021 research fellow at Indiana University's Black Film Center & Archive. Originally hailing from New Orleans, Maya is based in Brooklyn. Black Film Archive is a resource Maya has been hoping to discover for as long as she can remember. In June 2020, she decided to start building it herself. Every word on Black Film Archive is thoroughly researched and lovingly written by her. NOTES FROM THE ICHECKER In keeping with the official iCheckMovies list for the Library of Congress, I listed the shorts of Rev. Solomon Sir Jones separately (Films 1-29) versus one title "Rev. S.S. Jones Home Movies" like on BFA. As of January 2023, there are twelve BFA titles missing from my list because I could not track them down on either iCheckMovies or IMDB: Foye Family Home Video #3 Wedding Reception The Killing Floor Gotta Make This Journey: Sweet Honey in the Rock The Black Cop Steel Drums in New York Color Us Black!

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

    British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)

    Favs/dislikes: 38:0. "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
