iCM Forum's Favourite Movies from Australia, New Zealand and Oceania
Posted Image


The deadline is 22nd Febraury 2018
Countdown till deadline


  • Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.*
    *Imdb will be leading in this, but if you have good arguments exceptions to the rule can be made in consultation
  • Imdb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make one of those, ask another user to help you out.)
  • Lists can be any length.
  • Each nominee can only be named once (of course)
  • Your list may be ranked, unranked, or partially-ranked. In a partially-ranked list, the top X films are ranked and everything after that point is unranked. When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.
  • In case of coproduction, if you're unsure if a movie is eligible, please post here.

List length and halflife to be decided later. Probably 150 and 15.

Eligible countries

Movies you rated on IMDb by these countries sorted descending by your rating:

Thoughts on The Rocket's eligibility? It feels so completely SE Asian that I'd rather it be eligible for that poll later this year, but that may also be controversial...

I'll put together a list I am sure, Joachim. Hawaii (US) and Easter Island (Chile) should probably be included as well since it's a regional grouping.

It was the Australian submission for the Oscars, so go ahead.

Btw, they aren't allowed in the current challenge, so I don't know why they should be allowed now.

I know but it still feels a bit weird calling it an "Australian film". Personally I think I'll exclude it, but I'm really hoping it will be allowed for the SE Asia poll.

I think sol would know this.

Once I saw a 1994 (I think) film which is pretty similar, to what I later realized, Snowtown. However the pack, led by a blonde-haired, nervous dude, who beat up someone with a golf stick (I vaguely remember that) wasn't murdering anyone, but I can't tell what was the story about. It's not an early version of the Snowtown murders but very similar; I remember the gang used to drive around in a Ford Sierra.

Apart from well-known Oz films, we had opportunity to watch two TV series: 1) those State of Victoria policemen, and 2) "Children's Hospital" or whatever its name was (a good show but it got me on nerves the fact that children come and go, without giving the viewer an opportunity to stick to the characters).

I gave quite a few dislikes for films from these regions. Ended up with a list so small that I'm not even sure if it's worth posting

Huh, I had no idea Dark City was Australian; I'd always just assumed it was an American or American-British film I guess because of the obviously high budget and the cast, and I knew Proyas wasn't American-born but had no idea he was raised in Australia and started his career there. Still it's a co-production with more of the money I assume and most of the top-line cast coming from elsewhere but I guess it counts. Good to know, it may end up on my list.

I know a film that even you would like: Clay (1965).

Easter Island is allowed in the current challenge. I'm actually going to watch one from there in the next day or two. Hawaii is tied by close historical bonds to the other island nations in the Pacific (particularly Samoa). I think it would make sense to allow all countries, islands and territories in Oceania for this poll. After all, the French overseas territories are going to be allowed and most of them are considered to be part of France.

I have one or two shorts I very much like from Hawaii but it's more the ideal of regional completeness that is behind my position.

Apologies if my earlier post came across as a bit shouty and confrontational. Wasn't my intention.

Ah well, if the challenge allows it (I looked at the OP, but it wasn't there), I'll allow it as well.

There are no country-tags for Hawaii and Eastern Island, so it's hard to find movies from those two. You can search for Hawaiian language. I've put a link for that in the OP.

Easter Island fits in with Oceania, but is governed by Chile. We had talked about it, and it really has to be a film native to Easter Island, not a Chilean movie that happened to be filmed there (for example). I didn't throw it in the OP so as not to cause confusion (how successful was that decision? :P )

It's an Australian production made in Laos with Laotian cast, director and other key crew all Australian I believe. Akin to, say, Slumdog Millionaire which was made in India with largely Indian cast, but is a British film

ICM Poll: Ripper from Down Under, Mate!

Twenty-five is more than I expected. I'll try to see a few more. I didn't include American films like Mutiny on the Bounty.

Still have a couple I want to watch, but: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/oceania+faves/flaiky/

10 years ago the LOTR films would have been comfortably at the top, I utterly loved them, but the last time I watched one all the way through it took a big dive. Now when I catch bits on TV I actually find them quite annoying. Tough to know where to rank them.

That's funny to me - the first and third are among my dislikes, and I only tolerate the second one because it's 80% battle scene, and I love non-gun battles.
