If anyone knows of any Italian lists or would like to share their own, feel free to post it. I'm going to try to watch 50, all from the icm list. I've sadly only seen 14 so far and 5 of those are shorts. :(

Admit it. This post had nothing to do with the thread and you just wanted an excuse to say you were going to Prague/Italy :P

I'm in!

Current goals:

Finishing Pasolini's filmography. Got 3 left.
Finishing Fellini's filmography. Got 9 left.
Work on Visconti (only seen 4) and De Sica (only seen 5)

As for my final goal count I guess I'll put it to 40-50 like last time.

Goal 2: to get bronze in the Spaghetti Westerns list - 15 films needed
Goal 3: to not speak in an Italian voice come December!

I'm going to attempt to get a platinum on the spaghetti westerns list. The only hard part will be finding some of them. I also want to get to a respectable number on the Italian list. I might try for just 30. So i'm going to try and watch 70 films all together.

I'm in. But in a very low-key fashion. Sometimes I get exhausted just watching you high-scoring maniacs.

And thanks for hosting, SeanMX....

I'm not planning on watching a bunch, but it seems I may encounter some Italian movies this month, so I'll try to participate. My goal is 5-10, but who knows if I'll go crazy and see more.

Trouble is, I've been watching lots of Italian movies all along, and most the Italian films I really want to see aren't available on Netflix. Such as:

La grande guerra
Before the Revolution
The spider's strategem
Stromboli
Europa 51
Voyage to Italy
Miracle in Milan
Investigation of a citizen above suspicion
West and soda
Il ladro di bambini

A couple of lesser-known favorites among those I have seen:

Allegro non troppo
St. Michael had a rooster

Think I watched some VHS rip from another source. Stopped caring about stuff like that though, heck I've even gotten to love the "arte" logo for example, nice to know that someone are championing these films.
