Lists by Radu_A
list of famous titles from 1920-1960 which for some reason do not figure on the '1001 films you must see before you die' list. It's a very helpful list, and the more obscure selections are an inevitable matter of taste, but one cannot help but wonder what is NOT in there... share the surprises! A second part covering 1961-2000 will follow.
a list of Lesbian-Gay-Bi-Transgender-related films from before the 2000s. No other medium allows for a better understanding of the loooong way the LGBT communities have come, so this list hopefully makes for both fun and educational value. It's a work in progress, so be sure to come back if you like it.
This is a list of those greatest films ever made which are not in the IMDB top 250. I've based this not on my own taste, but strictly on IMDB ratings of 8.1 and up. It's intended as an invitation to vote. I'm including theatrical documentaries now, owing to imdb's inclusion of TV series in that list. I revise this list monthly - if a film drops below 8.1 it's out, if it makes it in, I leave a note. Since it's an awful lot of work to delete and then reenter a film which wanders between 8.0 and 8.1, i'm leaving a notifier with a grace period. As of January 2014, there's been an enormous surge of 8.1 votes which would take hours to include. I'm waiting to see if the levels remain this high - I'd go from 8.1 to an 8.2 limit in that case.
