Ho creato una lista con i film italiani a cui il Morandini ha dato 4 o 5 stelle:

@Edu ohm
Did you expect a happy ending from a neorealist Italian movie? I will add that this is a black and white movie (big spoiler!) :)

I need subtitles :)
Anyway, let's just watch it and rate it on IMDB.

Just watched Ugetsu Monogatari (1953) and I found out that they didn't give any golden lion in 1953. Ugetsu and I Vitelloni (Fellini) shared the Silver Lion

@stefanmago
Please open the file below the description and you will find out who compiled this list in 2006. Were they already dead?
But it's true that it stops at 1977 and another Italian list would be very appreciated :)

If you don't have enough beta testers, I am in!

Even without the competitive element, cheating can generate problems. For example, if I see that a small group of users have been able to see a movie/short that I can't find, I will waste my time in order to find it.

We are going off-topic... they were asking us for help and suggestions on how to detect cheaters.
In my opinion we should also check if a user is on the top 5 of many "country" lists. It's hard to be an expert of norwegian movies (Amanda awards), Italian movies (100+1), mexican movies (Ariel)... at the same time! Maybe if he is from Norway and lives in Italy with a mexican girl, he could be able to be into all these cultures :)

We should stop arguing about the best way to use the website. We already know that some of us are competitive and some more "relaxed". This is not the problem, maybe it's a good topic for a discussion on the facebook group. Here we are talking about a basic policy of this website: we ALL have to check ONLY movies we have seen, that's it. Doesn't matter if we care or don't care about the top users list and how we want to use the website.

There are many movies with just 1 or 2 checks and I am always wondering how these people have been able to watch them. Maybe I'm just too suspicious but I would like to know.
In "One hundred film and one country, Italy" list I can not understand how two of us were able to see movies like "Prima comunione", "Città dolente", "La spiaggia", "Febbre di vivere", "Il sole neglio occhi" and few other titles... all of them with only 2 checks. Sorry but I'm italian and I know that these movies are not in DVD anywhere in the world, neither in Italy. Furthermore italian TV never shows these movies and anyway you should be able to understand the language.
Can we force users to leave a comment in order to check movies with less than 5 checks? They should help the other users and tell them how to find those movies and in what language.

Prologue translation (sorry if it doesn't make sense):
"After having spent 100 years fighting each other
three mighty kings (of sea and land)
made an agreement of mutual alliance
in order to take a nice holiday
and so leading a group of a thousand squads...
they started off to declare war on birds"

@aeng
could you please share with us the link of that better list?
Anyway, this list has been created by a very respectful group of specialists (italian critics and directors) and they focused only on the period 1942-1978. As they said, this 101 films are maybe not the best ones but "we believe they are the most useful in re-opening an interrupted dialogue". Some of them were not available on DVD in Italy and they have been released recently thanks to this list.

Thanks for the new lists. I think the next award lists to be added could be:
David di Donatello (http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Awards/David_di_Donatello_Awards/)
Caesar Award (http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Awards/C%E9sar_Awards_France/)
European Film Award (http://www.imdb.com/Sections/Awards/European_Film_Awards/)
Cannes Gran Prix
Cannes Jury Prize
BAFTA Best Foreign Movie

Amazing list with almost all the best italian film (films!) and some gems that have to be preserved and put on dvd as soon as possible.
Titles 101-107 are short movies by Vittorio De Seta. You can find them on a DVD ("il mondo perduto. I cortometraggi di Vittorio De Seta. 1954-1959") with other 3 shorts: "Pastori di Orgosolo", "Un giorno in Barbogia" and "I dimenticati". Ciao!
