  1. Classic American Serials's icon

    Classic American Serials

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. A chronological listing of extant American serials made from the silent era through the 1950s. I am only including titles that exist complete, or for which there is enough material to provide at least the minimal "serial experience" , such as the first film listed, [b]The Perils of Pauline[/b] which was originally 20 reels but is known to exist now only in a 9-reel reissue version. Some of these titles aren't commercially available at the moment however.

  8. The Wonderfully Terrible's icon

    The Wonderfully Terrible

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Or, bad movies I love. I've loved schlock since the 80s and going to b-movie fests, and I don't really like any of the other lists I see here, so I'm creating my own. This is heavily sf-fantasy oriented as that's where my bad movie love developed and mostly still lurks. All in chronological order as I think it's silly to rank these, though I will say I have a special fondness for Ed Wood films and [b]Manos[/b].
  9. Underrated is a weasel word's icon

Top 50 films are ranked, the rest listed in chronological order.

    Crystal Simorgh Award Winners

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Winners of the Crystal Simorgh, the top award of the Fajr Film Festival, held annually in Tehran since 1982. This is the top film award give in Iran to domestic films - the award was first given in 1986, no winners were announced for 1994 or 2012, and two films tied for 2014. List is in chronological order according to the award history and may not match IMDb/ICM dates exactly.
  13. Dr. Mabuse: elf Bilder unserer Zeit's icon

    Dr. Mabuse: elf Bilder unserer Zeit

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. The eleven German productions - or co-productions - made between 1922 and 1990 about the eponymous criminal mastermind of novelist Norbert Jacques. The first four were directed by Fritz Lang, with the third a French-language alternate version of the third; the last film, from French director Claude Chabrol, is in English but was shot in Berlin with a mostly German cast. Films are listed in original release order.
  14. Everything But the Kitchen Sink's icon

    Everything But the Kitchen Sink

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Movies that are a little bit - or a lot - of everything. "Overstuffed" films might be another way to put it - "extravagant". Some of these are great films - some are anything but - but what they have in common is a desire to go well beyond the ordinary and the safe.
  15. Favorite African Films's icon

  18. Michael Shayne series's icon

    Michael Shayne series

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. All the films in the two series - the low budget Fox films with Lloyd Nolan (1-7) and the even lower budgeted PRC films with Hugh Beaumont as Brett Halliday's wisecracking, semi-comic private eye.
  19. Philo Vance's icon

    Philo Vance

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. The Philo Vance series, based on a character created by S.S. Van Dine, was one of the first in a very popular genre or subgenre in Hollywood during the Depression era - the amateur detective, usually a fashionable and wealthy man who doesn't need to pursue a career and just solves crimes for fun. See also the Lone Wolf and Falcon series, and for a twist, the Thin Man films in which the solitary male becomes a couple. Apart from the Thin Man, most of these series were low-budget b-pictures running 55-75 minutes, and in most cases the lead role changed hands over time as the originator of it got bored, or got to be a bigger star. Philo Vance is no exception, and he is played by in succession William Powell (films 1-3 and 5) Basil Rathbone (4) Warren William (6, 11) Paul Lukas (7) Edmund Lowe (8) Wilfrid Hyde-White (9) Grant Richards (10) James Stephenson (12) William Wright (13) Alan Curtis (14-15) NOTE: The Scarab Murder Case, the only British-produced film in the series, is considered a lost film but I have included it for completion's sake.
