Once again it's time for the forum's favourite films (includes shorts and docs as well) list.

Rules:
1) Make a list of your favorite films (Films include feature length films, short films, mini-series, whatever has an entry on IMDB, except TV series no video games either.).
You can submit a list in one of three ways:
1. Imdb list (preferred)
2. ICM list
3. List of imdb urls if you can't make an imdb list.
Make sure your (imdb/icm) list is public!

2) There is no minimum or maximum number of films, but each film on your list must only be listed once.

3) Submit a link to your IMDB/ICM list here, by midnight PST March 15, 2015 (8AM GMT March 16). I will download all lists at the deadline, so feel free to submit an incomplete list and keep editing your list until the deadline.

4) I will assume your list is RANKED unless you specify otherwise.
Other than a ranked list you can submit your list in one of the following ways:
- Unranked: All films get the same number of points (Pts are determined by the length of your list, same amount of total points as if the list had been ranked).
- Partially ranked: Top X is ranked, rest is unranked
- Group ranked: You have to specify the groups that go together, all films in the group get the same number of points. (eg: 11-20, 21-30, 31-50, 51-100)

Last year the point system was Points=100*(0.5)^((R-1)/175) I'll be using the same this year. Here's some example values for the less mathematically inclined:

Some helpful tools for making an imdb list:
Imdb Helper: This Greasemonkey script lets you paste either movie titles or imdb urls all together and will search them in order, saving you from having to cut and paste one by one.
Linky A firefox addon that lets you highlight multiple links and copy all the urls together at once. Useful if you've already got an existing list on imdb you want to copy, or for copying advanced search results (like all movies you've rated above 9).

For those interested:

No one stepped up to run it and I'm too busy for the next month to do it myself.

If someone wants to do it and have lists due Feb 28 or something, that would be fine. I'll offer the same as I offered jvv, I'll compile the results and give you formatted output, I might even have nicely formatted links to the screenshots from last year, and whoever does it can find the rest of the screenshots and post the results.

100 % of the voters included Five Dedicated to Ozu on their list. Who will break this fine statistic?

I'm willing to do it. Is there any additional information I need before it starts, or should I just start the thread now?

I've got these ineligible titles included:

I presume it is convenient for you that I delete those from my list by the time you'll be downloading the lists.

This list already sucks (I can say so because I have contributed a list) and Five Dedicated to Ozu should be higher!

I'll probably add 25-100 titles to my list depending on how much spare time I have to rewatch some films I've never rated. I cut 14 films from my previous year list trying to keep my list at 100, but 100 films feels too small now :'(

Yeah, no reason to cut the list down. The full list will be 1000, so put as many titles as you feel comfortable with.

105 lists last time. I think we'll be struggling to get the same this time. I'm pretty the number was boosted because I've sent out reminder messages for this last for the last couple of years. I'm not sure if I can be bothered doing messages anymore but I'll think about it. I mean messaging current members on here; not anyone else from iCM.

Need to do a massive update of spots ~300-1100 since IMDB randomly jumbled up most of those films. Don't know if I can be bothered to do it since it's such a pain to update large lists on IMDB. We'll see.

According to imdb something like House of Cards (1990) is a mini-series. Does that make it eligible?

Always under construction. I've rewatched 1 to 73 so far. So the lowest ones in that range probably end up a lot lower during my continuous rewatching challenge, but whatever, count it as ranked completely. I'll probably rewatch the next 10 before the deadline.

do you deliberately avoid listing anything that is too popular or considered 'canon'? there's a number of films that show up regularly in your screenshot games I'm surprised not to see here..

It seems to be the same (or almost the same) list as his <400 list.

As mjf314 suspected it IS the exact same list as the one I submitted for 500<400. I don't intend to ever make a comprehensive Fav Flix Eva list and this is the closest to it that I ever got to making out. Last year I submitted my "Anti-Canon" list for this poll which were my 300 favorite films with under 1,500 votes on IMDb. This includes roughly the same films, but it's only 300 titles. I also considered submitting this list (http://www.imdb.com/list/ls056227522/) which are my favorite films I have seen in the past four or five years, it's pretty much the equivalent of adding films to ones favs on ICM. But as of now it's only 234 titles long and it's an unranked list.

The films I use in my quizzes aren't at all reflective of my favorites, by the way.
