Lists by MortalKombatFan1

a list of 1,700 titles
Updated list:

To avoid confusion, this list is made up of movies that are underrated OR obscure OR hard to find (or sometimes a combination of any of these three).

I put the more popular/recent titles first to get more views.

So just to clarify with some examples:
"Unbreakable" is underrated as most critics passed it off at the time of it's release but it has since maintained a strong following with over 160,000 votes on imdb.

The Malayalam film "Elippathayam" (Rat-trap) written and directed by Adoor Gopalakrishnan is acclaimed but it is obscure even in it's country of production. It is still available on DVD with subtitles from the UK company Second Run, however, so it isn't hard to find.

Whereas the Turkish comedy "Outrageous Class" is very popular in Turkey and has a high rating on imdb, it's not available legally with English subtitles on home video overseas, making it hard to find.
a list of 4,000 titles
I have amassed a list of 4000 short films, spanning from the very beginning of cinema (Sallie Gardner at a Gallop/Roundhay Garden Scene) to 2015.

No film is over 49 minutes (with the exceptions of David Lynch's "Rabbits", "My Childhood" & "My Ein Folk", and "The Smiling Madame Beudet").

Also, no feature length anthology films were included.
I began making this list in early 2009. I now finished it in 2015 adding the short oscar nominations for this year.
Enjoy and discuss!
P.S. I really like these short film lists here:

And don't forget about this list about 16mm Experimental films:

Those lists are bound to have films not on my list, maybe even ones not on IMDB.

Edit: Removed 3 titles: La coiffeuse (1905), Eveready Harton in Buried Treasure (1929), and Transfer of Modulation (1969) for being in the adult category, causing this list to be filtered. This version is otheriwise the same, just republished.

a list of 202 titles
Originally created 10 Aug 2011, but reuploaded to remove adult content (Caligula and Lucas Encoutners)

These films were made by people who never directed a feature film again after making their debut for respective reasons.

Recently removed Zach Braff (Garden State), Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), Shane Carruth (Primer), James Richards (Black Neon) and Vince Offer (Underground Comedy Movie) for returning to directing. José Antonio Sistiaga did make another feature, Laztanak (1970) (16mm, 85 minutes), which is not on imdb. Peter Thompson made another feature besides "Lowlands" (2009), so I deleted it from my list (it's not on imdb, though).

These are not only some of my favourite movies, but also movies that I consider to be perfect in each and every way; movies so skillful and nuanced, from performance, to story, to production design, music, editing and cinematography, that I can watch them over and over again and find new things to enjoy each time. They're all standouts in the specific genres a and all have qualities that have been influential to cinema and contribute it the legacy of film in some way (through influence of technique, on popular culture, etc.)
