My favorite directors of all time! If you are interested in my favorite current directos follow this link: http://www.imdb.com/list/G_XQREQlby4/
Sorry for the overuse of decimals. These ratings are copied from my personal archives where I like to have an indicator as of how strong my individual ratings are, but I guess that could be of some use to you as well.
This is a list of everything from aging all time great, young directors with huge imprints and new up and coming directors. The focus is on what I expect of them in the future. The ranking is based on how excited I would be for a new film from them.
Sorry about all the Godards. He's my favorite director of all time. The list excludes Orson Welles' french productions, as well as JLG's King Lear which was produced by the US.
The Top 300 Silent Era Films list has a great selection of silents, and I hope it will help many explore deeper into this great and largely forgotten era. However, the list as it stands is highhly Americanized while several countries such as Germany, Sweden, Japan and more were going incredibly strong. So to broaden the perspective here's a selection great non-American silents I hope will leave an impression on you as well. It's ranked in reverse chronological order.
The Skype Crew is a bunch of Internet friends who get together and watch potentially bad films in a supportive enviroment. As a group we can conquer what we could not alone, and with courage, good will and a so far reliable suicide watch we will continue to fight our way through this list.
150 Japanese films I consider great. (Under slight re-construction)
My 100 fav horror films (loose definition of horror).
Best films I've seen from the current decade.
I must note that these are my least favorites, not the films I believe to be the worst of all time. I usually try to stair away from films with horrid reputations, though I have seen a few through the years.
Time-travel, space adventures, aliens, killer robots and much, much more.
My least favorite genre, but here are some of the films that really worked for me.
Ranked entirely on how much they make me laugh, though they are all top dollar.
This list was compiled through year by year rating polls. The lowest amount of votes needed to be eligible was 5 votes. The point of the exercise was to give more obscure movies an equall oppurtunity to compete. The attendance rate varied between 30 and 70, which is part of the reason some years are more represented than others.
Decided not to include My Winnipeg and Que Viva Mexico. The first because it's quite obviously a poetic and meditating comedy that mixes facts and fiction without any sort of discrimination. The latter on the other hand consists of both ducumentary footage and more normal fictional storytelling, though here it's obvious what's what.
On the other hand I did choose to include Nanook of the North: Because even though it's scripted it does attempt to convey Nanook's life, and it feels far closer to a documentary overall.
I'm also including Exit Through the Gift Shop, because even though most of it is probably one big lie, it does document with great truth what people see as art.
My own little Razzie show. I have obviously seen far from everything, so these are just my least favorites. Some of them aren't even that bad.
"The 100 + 1 films chosen to be the the most accessible movies to the viewers of this time. The list has been compiled by a jury of 10 experts. "
Well, that's the description, the total amount is 109 according to ICM. Here's the list:
Everything changed in the 60's. The black and white/color ratio changed completely. As the 70's grew closer the era of black and white photography was over. Still , numerous directors has chosen to work with it since. Here's my top 30 B/W films from 1970 to present. Movies with the slightest use of color, such as My Winnipeg and Schindler's list are excluded.
For some reason this decade gets a bad rap from a lot of people. I disagree. Few decades are better
Here's a ranked list of all the films I've seen with Humphrey Bogart in them, this includes supporting roles. Bogie is one of my favorite actors of all time, so I figured this list was due. And to be perfectly frank, even the "worst" few at the bottom is still "good enough". I assume there is a lot of, or at least some crap I haven't seen yet, but the fact that I have seen 36 films from an actor and most of them are great says a lot!
Top 10 horror films made between 1930 and 1959. Been a bit harsh here and cut off some fabulous films such as Les Diaboliques, Day of Wrath and House By the River. They are simply not horror enough IMO.
Here are the hilarious pearls made before 1959. I have tried to be a bit of a purist and brush away drama comedies and other films that might not fit in with the rest. At first I wasn't sure if I should include non-American titles as well, but I decided not to discriminate. Be adviced that these films does not follow the comedic styles that was popular in America at this time.
Among the drama comedies excluded we find among others The Kid, City Lights, Dinner at Eight and Lady for the Day.
A bunch of hated/disliked films I really like.
With foreign I mean films that are not made (primarily) in the english language. Being Norwegian that could have created some awkward situations - but luckily we suck at making films. Been really rough on this bunch. First of all every film in the English language (no matter where it was produced) is excluded, furthermore, films primarily known in their English versions are also excluded. This primarliy means spaghetti westerns. GBU, For A Few Dollars More and Once Upon a Time in the West would have been included if this was not the case. I have rated all these films 10/10, a rating I don't give out too often.
Not in any particular order.
The are my 50 favorite films from East Asia. My knowledge in this field is rather limited. Don't believe I have even seen a Korean film made before the 90's, and I got plenty of giant filmmakers to catch up to. If something great is missing just recommend away : )
None of these are pure trash, but the 7 last are pretty damn mediocre - albeit moderately entertaining. The 15 first are great and i would recommend the 21 first.
The 1990's had many incredible films, these are my 30 favorites.
My 30 favorite films from the last decade.
