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 25.

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

Rules:
- Films released in 2015-2016 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. The series should be intended as a single unified work and not episodic.
- 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.
- 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 and partially-ranked lists:
Every unranked film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).

2016 participants (145)


Last year's iCM list

2015 participants (155)

2014 participants (170)

See older thread for list of participants:
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)
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'm going to take the easy way out and just do an unranked list this time.

Here's my list. It is ranked. This time I've kept it updated all year long, so it didn't take me time to make it...

This is the link, but the list isn't complete at all.
Clicky linky
The last ones are not eligible, they're just there so I don't forget them next year

If you have made a list in a previous year that you would rather update than start from scratch, here are two links courtesy of last year's Limedebois:

To see which eligible films in your IMDb fav list are missing in your obscure list:

www.imdb.com/search/title?lists=!ls058869139,!ls074613752,[YOUR FAVS LIST ID] ,![YOUR ACTUAL OBSCURE LIST ID]&my_ratings=restrict&release_date=,2014&sort=my_ratings&title_type=feature,tv_movie,mini_series,documentary,short,video&view=simple

To use your entire ratings list instead of a specific "favs list" just ignore the [YOUR FAVS LIST ID] part (remove it, leave it be, replace it with "fuck me sideways", whatever turns you on, it makes no difference).


To weed out all the films that have over 400 CHECKS in your actual obscure list:

www.imdb.com/search/title?lists=ls058869139,[YOUR ACTUAL OBSCURE LIST ID]&sort=my_ratings&start=1&title_type=feature,documentary,short

Did you see 39 better movies with less than 400 checks or did you rerank so much?

Btw, Perception, I'm just curious. You rated 8,201 movies on IMDb totally. You vote for 4,043 movies in this poll. Do you just vote for every eligible title you've seen?

No, I just provisionally put my new favorites in the front to more easily move them around later on. But the idea of giving all my new favorites their day in the sun and leave them at the very top has something too. We'll see.

In the 500<400 polls, yes. Just for the lolz.

That's pretty ridiculous, if you ask me. :lol:
Not that it matters a lot, since movie #4043 will only get 0.0000000000000000000000462099 points from you. :pinch:

By my calculations of points per tier.

Tier 1 = 95.96328657
Tier 2 = 72.4025564
Tier 3 = 33.79784675

If that can't be done just consider them ranked.

I took on the task of making a new list for this poll early, so it was going to be good and going to be big. Hopefully it has some impact on the final list... at least it will have more impact than only listing my utmost obscure favorites, like I did before :)

huge thanks to joachimt for helping me create this, with a few updates now too... you rock!

https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/beavis+dashleft400+favorites/joachimt/

the list is ranked btw... although as usual with big lists, the lower you get in the list the harder it gets to attach any meaning to a ranking... :) but I'm happy with the way it looks.

Smaller than my last 2 lists, but like I said in the other thread, these are all the films in my favourite films list. It'll probably be in the 7-800s if I add my 7/10s, but that will take way too much work, and they'll contribute almost nothing points-wise.

Hopefully I removed all the 2015 films that have less than 400 checks.

EDIT: NEW LIST URL http://www.imdb.com/list/ls063887396/

Also keep in mind that 2014 films are now eligible! I was planning on seeing a lot more of them soon but one film that I wanna see is still not available (Lav Diaz's Storm Children - Book One. One of his short films, at 2.5 hours)

2014 films that are on my list, in order:

If you add it to iCM, then you can sort by number of checks to see which ones are >= 400.

I have new #1: Freakstars 3000 by Christof Schlingensief. It's an absolute gem. By far the best thing to come out of the germany this millenium.

If you're from Switzerland, which you are not, I urge you to watch "Dokumentarfilm - Eine Anleitung". Hilarious!

And since sadly Kiarostami passed a away recently - check out and vote for his adorable 2011 short "No" (only 8 minutes, watchlink in the comments): https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/no-2010/

20 lists so far. Good start. Hopefully we can beat last year's total of 155. Hoping for some first-time lists from people too. We have some new active members. Then there's Rich who has somehow never contributed a 500<400 list.

Are we going to have to change the name of this list? I was thinking about how I normally send out messages to forum members about submitting a list and how, suddenly, it'll be more confusing to say it's the "iCM forum's" list.
