Male actors only (I will be creating a female list as well). Its SO hard to put these in ranked order, and Im still not 100% satisfied with the order, but here goes...

My 2nd favorite horror subgenre :D

Top 5 for each director. Directors on this list have to have at least 5 good films to their credit.

I consider Simon Boswell #1, but being OCD I had to have a picture highlighting my list so I bumped Howard Shore up. It should be Simon, then Trevor, then Howard.
 
a list of 5 titles
My third-to-least-favorite genre (behind westerns and musicals), but I figure I can dredge up 5
 
a list of 75 titles
All theatrical feature-length releases* that I HAVE SEEN. Im sure Son Of The Mask and The Hottie & The Nottie are horrifying, but guess what? I wouldnt watch those if you paid me to. MAYBE if I want a drunk DIY MST night, but even then...Id rather have some 80s B Sci-Fi to rip into. These are all films I *trusted* and they abused my trust! I dont know how long it will take me to actually enter 100...in an ideal world: never haha. And speaking of MST, there will be none on here unless I actually dared to watch the movie "naked" -- which so far has been none.

These will go up to a rating of 4/10

*all theatrical releases except for DTV sequels

THE best year in cinema IMO. I can only say that because its the one year where I have the most films listed that I absolutely love. 1999 is another fantastic year as well as some in the 60s and 70s, but 2001 is king. Comments welcome

For some reason, when Im on my work computer, I cant make lists. it keeps deleting whatever I enter so I will get this done when I go home :(

There are still about 30 or so films I need to see from 2010 and even Shutter Island, Ive rated a 9/10. Im looking for that diamond! I havent found it *quite* yet, but its gotta be on my other list somewhere http://www.imdb.com/list/fHpn_zhMUjk/.
 
a list of 12 titles
All the films that are slated to (as of this writing-12/27/10) to come out in 2011. Stay tuned for my 2012 and 2013 editions

NOTE: Unlike most lists of upcoming titles, the majority here are under the radar and/or not as carved in stone, as say, the upcoming Fast & Furious movie. This is the unfortunate way of cinema. Because of this, some of the details could -- and certainly some of it will -- change. So feel free to notify me if any details could use some updating/correcting.

**WORK IN PROGRESS***
 
a list of 10 titles
Ive seen *exactly* half of his films (16). The other 6 that Ive seen are: Nazarin, Milky Way, Diary Of A Chambermaid, Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie, L'Age D'or, and Las Hurdes.
 
a list of 19 titles
The primary theme is love/romance, but with a twist of science fiction or fantasy involved.

Only the first seven are ranked. I havent seen the others yet, and theyre ranked according to which one I want to see first.

Even films that I end up hating will remain on this list as it is a themed list.

**Work in progress**

Everyone's got movies on their favorites list that they always have to justify against all the naysayers. Here is my list. Note: These of course arent my favorite films of all time, but just favorites out of all the films that most people seem to hate.

Almost all of them are comedies. Nothing can be further from the truth to state that everyone has a different sense of humour. Its probably why (for the most part) we can all agree on "serious" movies, but never on comedies.

IMDb ratings: <5, my ratings: 7+ (Ranked)
 
a list of 10 titles
Any kind of horror where the horror is monsters, aliens, demons, zombies, or "the infected", etc.
 
a list of 28 titles
With my themed list, I will be listing all that fit that them whether I loved the movie, hated it, or have never seen it. Some I havent seen and I never plan to (like 'The Children' 1980).
 
a list of 57 titles
My favorite films that have less than 600 votes on IMDb. Please watch them for they are awesome and overlooked. Some may be less than available, but if you can find them, watch them :). In ranked order for the most part.

I tried to do <500, but I kept running into fillms with like 532 or something, but didnt quite want to extend it out to 1000. Please comment
 
a list of 12 titles
The favorites of my favorite subgenre. After the first 3, its hard to rank them as theyre all perfect!

List is going to have 11 for now...will probably be increasing it to 15 in the near future. Stay tuned.

These are what I believe to be the best movies ever made.

Its not quite complete yet. I still need to finish rearranging them, but theyre all here. If youre interested, please comment, and please stay tuned.

...Not necessarily young in age, but young in their careers in that they have 4 or less feature films under their belt. TV stuff and shorts dont count. All have supremely impressed me with their work so far, but of course havent really proven themselves completely yet. Hopefully they will eventually graduate to my "accomplished" director list.
 
a list of 16 titles
Some are great, some are OK, and some just plain SUCK! Oh, and some havent even come out yet hehe. This will be in ranked order until I get to those.

Projects in the works, but not appearing on imdb:

-VALIS: Also optioned by John Alan Simon. Radio Free Albemuth has to get distribution first, THEN he has to work on Flow My Tears, and THEN perhaps he can get to working on VALIS
-Time Out Of Joint: This one purchased by Warner Bros. No further information at this time.
-The Owl In Daylight: This is no longer listed on imdb and seems to be shelved for now, but its worth mentioning. It was to be a biopic with Paul Giamatti playing PKD
-King Of The Elves: This was a short story in 1953 that is supposed to be adapted by Disney and set for release 12/2012.

If youve been following my year-by-year lists, I must warn you: from the 60s on down, and until I get more awesome movies "under my belt", I will be doing a top list by decade. It doesnt make sense to have a list for just one or two films.
 
a list of 10 titles
Im really trying to squeeze as much as I can out of the barren 50s. Ive seen 29 films from the 50s, only 19 of which are good, and 10 that I consider worthy of this list. Also see the companion piece to this list: My 1950s hitlist: http://www.imdb.com/list/TSvXWMM33ag/

Some years, especially in the '40s will be skipped because there wasnt much besides formulaic stilted studio films to choose from.

Only 9s and 10s will be represented here with the occasional 8 if it was a really "slow" year.

a list of 42 titles
I will be doing a series of checklists showing films I want to see from the given decade. I will of course be removing and adding titles as I watch them and as I find more I want to see. Lists in the series will be "pre-20s", 30s, 40s, and 50s. The lists would be too large if I were to go up in time any higher, though I might consider it in the future.

Out of the 28 films from the 1950s Ive seen, 6 are Hitschock, 3 are Bunuel and 6 are Disney films leaving 13. And of this list of 43, 8 are Bunuel, 1 Hitch, and 3 Kubricks. There just isnt much from the 50s that Im interested in other than the above-mentioned established categories.

Some of these films look like they havent even been released yet, but until they do, and imdb updates the release year, they will stay on this list. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions, but please keep in mind the kind of films that are already on here.

Films I *have* seen: good:Shutter Island, Iron Man 2, Inception, Nightmare On Elm Street, The Crazies, Welcome To The Rileys, Frozen, Buried, The Social Network bad/disappointing: Alice in Wonderland, Ghost Writer, Monsters

Not in any particular order.

There are a number of these films that have been on my list for about a decade now and still no findey. Im sure I could do the piratebay thing on a number of them, but thats a pain in the ass and Id much rather just have the "real thing" (its not so much an ethics thing as it is an aesthetic thing). Still, I dont mind if people want to email me links to the films or somewhere to find said film (and not for a gajillion dollars!)

NOTE: There are plenty on here that are available on PAL, but Im in the US so that wont work -- need NTSC.

**WORK IN PROGRESS-STAY TUNED**

My list of wants is comprised of 100s of films, but these are the absolute MUST HAVEs that haunt my dreams!! About half of these are incredibly hard to find. The other half not so much, but I just havent had the spare cash to pick them up.

Update: 03/12/11: I just received Thursday on DVD and it was only $10! So, for now there are only 19 films until I add another.

...Not adult as in porn/erotic, but just not fantasy as in Lion, Witch & Wardrobe-type stuff.
 
a list of 85 titles
Some are as black as oblivion -- maybe 1% comedy -- and others are a little more campy/true comedy, but needless to say, you wont find Tommy Boy on here (thats on my next list: top (straightforward) comedies ;) ). And some will overlap lists (like The Cable Guy and Monkeybone). Someday, as anally retentive as I am, I may break this list up into the three subgenres listed above, but for now theyre all going together.

You may not agree with everything on this list as far as "qualifying" as the list's title, and thats fine, I welcome comments, but please dont be a dick about it
