iCM Forum's 500<400
Hosted by AdamH and mjf314

Create an IMDb list or iCM list of your favorite films with fewer than 400 checks, and post it in this thread by the end of September 20.

View your least-checked checks
View your least-checked favorites

Rules:
- Films from 2014-2015 are not allowed.
- Shorts and mini-series* are allowed. TV shows are not allowed.
* Mini-series must be 14 episodes or less, not multiple seasons, and not planned to be longer but canceled. In addition, the series should be intended as a single unified work.
- Your list may be ranked or unranked, but not partially-ranked.
- Films that reach 400 checks by the deadline will be removed (so you don't have to do it yourself).
- You must post your own list in this thread (but you can ask someone to create an IMDb list for you, if you want).

Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50
#1: 100 points
#51: 50 points
#101: 25 points
#N: 100 / 2 ^ ((N-1) / 50) points

Scoring for unranked lists:
Every film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).

2015 participants (155)


2014 iCM list: 500<400 / 1000<400

2014 participants (170)


September 2013 participants (122)


January 2013 participants (82)


Some links to help you make your list:
Eligible titles that you've rated on IMDb (sorted by your rating)
Eligible titles from some IMDb list (replace lsXXXXXXXXX with any list ID #) (sorted by your rating)
IMDb List Helper (Greasemonkey script): Make an IMDb list more easily by copy/pasting a list movie titles or IMDb URLs onto the edit list page.
Linky or Multi-links (Firefox), Linkclump (Chrome): Add-on that lets you copy many URLs at once. Useful for copying advanced search results (e.g. all films that you rated 9 or higher).

I always keep my list up-to-date. Just had to remove the titles that went over 400 checks since the last poll.

I had to remove these titles

My list from last year (still needs an update): http://www.imdb.com/list/ls055642642/

EDIT: Don't add this list to the OP! It's gonna be faster for me to do a new one from scratch cause I can just add URLs that way.

Adding the favourites will be no problem, it's the 7/10s which will take a bit. I'll start updating it tomorrow and will hopefully have it done in a few days.

After that, I REALLY gotta get into updating this list more frequently.

In case anyone is interested to see, these titles from the current list will be gone, because they went over 400 checks:

Spoiler: click to toggle


These titles are in the range of 390-399 checks, so they'll probably be gone as well:

Two Years at Sea ⇒ 68 checks, A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness ⇒ 65 checks :o surprisingly low, I think!

A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness wasn't eligible last year. Now it is. Ben Rivers' films aren't exactly accessible though so I can understand why the amount of checks are so low.

The eligible titles list wasn't updated properly. Some titles >400 check were added recently but not all of them (Inherent Vice, Millenium Mambo, ...).

PS: Yeah, time for Hidden Gems!

Does your #4 count as a mini-series or TV-series?
Not that anyone else will vote for it, since you are the only one who checked it, so it won't make it anyway.

It's a mini-series. Six individual interviews with scientists/philosophers and a concluding round table discussion with all of them together. I sent a correction request to Imdb.

BTW, you should check it out, it's excellent. B)


EDIT: I'll upload it to wetransfer, so you don't have to spend KG ratio on it. It might take a while though.
Non-Dutchies can probably see the episodes on Youtube (for Dutchies VPRO blocked it for copyright reasons).

I wonder if these up- and downvotes for both comments are forum-members having fun with the fight or ignorant ICMers who don't know Arthur and Lauren are just teasing a bit. :lol:

The eligible titles list wasn't updated properly. Some titles >400 check were added recently but not all of them (Inherent Vice, Millenium Mambo, ...).

PS: Yeah, time for Hidden Gems!
Yes, some films with under 7.0 on IMDb are missing because they won't make any of the IMDb lists and I thought I had a little more time to do a proper update for the purposes of this list. There are now about 9500 films over 400 checks and imdb's list limit is 10000 and I wanted to avoid hitting that. For now you can check such films manually, or wait a few days until I can fix things properly. I'm going to split the list into two, the highly rated films into the current list and the rest into another. I'll post a corrected filter link when I'm done.

I think I removed all the movies which had 400 checks this year.
So here's my list. I will play with the ranking for a while (and maybe add one more title)... Over 200 movies, it's too long,

I will do a little sorting and round it out to 200 before the deadline.

This is not 100% done but here's my list: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls074672246/

The list was at a little bit over 700 before, but that was before removing all the films with 400+ checks.

There might be some duplicates. If there are, they are films that had 7/10 for last year's list and are now favourites. There also might be some 2014-2015 films there.

It's missing my current batch of 7/10s+ (9 of them) which I will add after I update my favourite movies list.

#366-397 are stuff that I want to rewatch (or at least look back in retrospect with screenshots/writings on them). They might become favourites or might go down to 7/10.

Although I've watched them too recently for a rewatch, #398-405 seems too good to only have 7/10. Will also look them up again and will think about favouriting them. Although I do wanna rewatch My Brother's Wedding as well.

All of this will be fixed at the end of the month.

Why would I be so agressive with promoting Shura and not put it in my top 10 :P

I didn't even know you watched it. Lemme guess, one of if not the best Jidaigeki movie ever made?
