I should be on the list soon. We had an issue with the list not updating properly, so it and a couple of others should show up in a few days.

As muzzlehatch said, as well, the source imdb list is updated manually about once a month, and Everything Everywhere was not over 1500 checks a couple of weeks ago when the list was last updated ready to be made official.

Do you have an example of something that doesn't import Nine99? I just imported a film successfully.

Just saw this comment, you're right that it should be Grounded God. I've confirmed that it's a different film, so I'll be fixing the list. Thanks for noticing this.

FYI for anyone reading this, if you notice any errors on lists, please PM a mod, use the contact form or the help board as it will get quicker action.

Turkey already had a list, we just updated it. Which Danish list should we consider, Nuked? DFI is a bit old and Gyldendal's Guide seems to ignore the silents, but we do talk about Denmark regularly.

I've updated the list after rewatching the documentary and taking notes of all clips noted:

Changes:
Removed:
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Shadow of a Doubt
(both only shown as title cards and not further discussed)
Advise & Consent
(name dropped with only a single still like several other films not on the list)

Added since they were missing:
MGM Studio Tour 1925
and (probably most controversially)
The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

I've also reordered the list in order of appearance for easier referencing.

@JeroenO
Deadline is sept 9. It's in the thread, but should have been in the blog post too.
Should be enough time for those like you (and me) who are on vacation.

Yes a web form would have been ideal, but it's work and time better put elsewhere. I've posted in the thread a possibly more convenient way to vote if spreadsheets are too much of a hassle. Copy that post, enter the rating and post or email it, no files or attachments needed.

@Ferneu
Not being able to check a movie is sometimes caused by javascript or cookie issues. You might want to try clearing your icheckmovies cookies and your cache and then logging back in to try. If that doesn't fix you issue make a new topic here: https://discuss.icheckmovies.com/c/bugs
and hopefully Marijn can figure out what's wrong.

I don't know what list you'd be referring to. I don't think we'd make that assumption. Which isn't to say we wouldn't replace an official list, but it would be because we felt the replacement was justified not because we assume people voting for a list want it to replace some unmentioned list.

Yes, sending a message when there's a new blog post has always been standard (I think there's a setting to turn it off, though).

India isn't Angloworld.

The Comedy list tried to diversify and includes a lot of non-Anglo critics, but the power of Hollywood does mean the list ends up pretty anglo-centered.

Now that imdb has an entry for the entire film, rather than its constituent parts, it has replaced those parts in official lists since all those lists list the work as a whole.

For the record, we've considered adopting lists for Denmark, Argentina, and Mexico, but the current all time lists available for all three countries are somewhat dated, which some people find quite annoying, and unadopting them later if something better comes along would meet with complaints as well, so we put it off in hopes of a recently made list coming out.

For those wondering about the new update after all these years, the source is now official. There's an excel sheet on the TSPDT website for this list: http://www.theyshootpictures.com/gf1000_links2.htm, the last link in the Resources section. Hopefully it will be updated yearly from now on.

@shakha A film being lost now doesn't mean it was lost in the 1970s, and some of them may well have seen the films on original release. Rotha himself, for instance.

I agree with you about TIFF, garvey, but because it's an audience award I think some see the award as less meaningful than others even if the festival itself has gotten right up in that top tier as a festival. It is in consideration for the future, though
