    Harvard University's Suggested Film Viewing List: Experimental/Avant-garde/Underground Films (2012)

    Favs/dislikes: 103:3. 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.

  3. Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time's icon

    Top 250 Most-Acclaimed Short Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 103:1. I compiled this list from many different polls, lists, and awards, using a weighted point system to rank the shorts. I'm defining short as any film with a runtime of 45 minutes or less. This list focuses more on animation than the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/brief+encounters/]Brief Encounters[/url] list. It includes many acclaimed animated shorts which are missing from Brief Encounters, most notably The Man Who Planted Trees and Ruka. Missing from IMDb: The Magic Fox (1982) (it would've been ranked #132)

    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=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.

"Their perspective should give us a longer view of the films made in this decade, the films that should stand the test of time and be acknowledged as historically influential works in the decades to come."

    Favs/dislikes: 48:0. Each year, Kinema Junpo magazine publishes a list of the top 10 Japanese films of the year. This is not the complete list because some of the films are missing from IMDb.

    Favs/dislikes: 40:1. In 1977, the Royal Film Archive of Belgium sent out questionnaires to film experts from 22 countries in order to compile an extensive list of important American films. 203 people participated (116 Americans and 87 non-Americans). Each participant compiled two lists, a list of the most important films (limited to 30 titles) and a list of misappreciated films (not limited in number). The final list is sorted by number of votes (including both important and misappreciated votes). The book lists all 2327 films that received at least 1 vote. This list includes the films that received at least 5 votes. One of the list entries is "Songs" which includes 25 films, so I included only the first one.
  16. All Films on iCM Lists That You Can Watch on IMDb's icon

    All Films on iCM Lists That You Can Watch on IMDb

    Favs/dislikes: 39:0. You can watch all of these films for free by clicking the "Watch It" or "Watch Now" link on the IMDb page. Some of the films are only available in certain countries (e.g. the ones hosted on Hulu), so if you don't live in one of those countries then you won't see the link.

"100 Anime is an exploration of the wonderfully complex and beautifully disorienting world of Japanese animation - anime. This expansive and mind-blowing book delves deep into the chaos of meaning gorged by anime's mutation of Eastern/Western themes, images and sounds." This is not a list of the "100 Greatest Anime." Some of the titles were selected in order to analyze Japanese pop culture and to show how vast the world of anime is. The list is in alphabetical order. Missing from IMDb: SD Gundam (1988)
