iCM Forums' Favourite Films on Zero Official Lists

Posted Image

It's time to showcase your favourite underappreciated gems!

The rules
· Films, mini-series, episodes from tv anthology series are all allowed
· Films from the newly adopted lists that have become official in Jan 2018 are NOT eligible
· List can be on imdb or icm
· Fully ranked, partially ranked, or unranked lists only (will be considered ranked unless specified); group-ranked lists will not be allowed
· Half-life will likely be 50, depending on the average size of the lists
· I'm aiming to have a top 250, but it will depend on how many submissions there are; top 100 for sure
· Films that switch between official and unofficial each week because of imdb list updates are eligible
· Films from 2017 & 2018 are not eligible, just like how we do it for the 500<400 list.

Deadline for submissions
Wednesday, January 31st, midnight PST - this gives you three weeks to put together a list.

Why participate?
· It's an official poll, and everyone loves official things here :P
· It's a chance to showcase films that you think should become official
· It's going to be so unpredictable, so the entertainment value should be high :D

All of your checks sorted by # Official Toplists and then sorted alphabetically - you'll have to go to the first page of 0 official checks to see your list.

Results from the July 2015 Poll

Top 250

Lists to Assist your List Creation, courtesy of Joachim

This is a list of IMDb-urls of all currently official checks plus the ones gaining official status and minus the ones losing official status. If you export your IMDb-ratings, you can put this column next to it and do a MATCH-funtion. Exclude everything that matches this column. - https://we.tl/4N2bfl3SBP
And in case people want to do a list-comparison on IMDb:
Movies losing official status this month (so eligible for this poll): http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021700998/
Movies gaining official status this month (so ineligible for this poll): http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021705040/

This should be an annual poll, as in its very nature it is very volatile.

Still about 4500 films -_-
Does a fast way exist to filter out my favorites only?

Great idea for a poll, but it will be quite tough to create a ballot..!

The results should become an official list. ;)

Inversely I guess that films from the noir and western lists that are being replaced/updated this month are eligible if they're losing their official status. Aren't they?

Fuck, I haven't been using that thumbs up option in a while. Now I see it actually is useful. :think:

IMDb is only making things more difficult for me by not allowing me to drag the films in the list. I have to manually type in a placement for each film. :verymad:

More heroic behavior!
I went premium just now, so I'll either be using your export or work from my own toplist and filter out the ones that appear in top lists (or are too recent). Dunno how much I feel like ranking 625 films :)

Yeah, but isn't there some kind of rule that you can only make 1 list if you're not a premium user. Am I wrong about this?

Oh right, yeah. I've been premium for so long that I forgot about that. Personally I always delete these lists that I only make for polls, but if you want to keep them then it could be a problem...Although, 1 euro a month is basically free. :thumbsup:

Do you know the filmcounter program also works with partially ranked lists? That means ranked till X rest unranked.

I just noticed at the moment there are 14999 official checks on iCM. :woot:

I think movies losing official status from the Western replacement and Noir update should be eligible indeed. Can someone filter those titles and make a list of them, so they are easily found?

Ranked in order of greatness. That Paste Anime list sure eliminated a lot of my previous entries, still missing about 430 favorites though. Sadly I don't have them ranked, so not going there right now.
