I remember there is an Star wars ranking here, but it disappeared for some reasons.

 

May I know what happened to that thread?

Just gonna post a first reminder here about sending lists. 

 

There is still plenty of time (kind of), but such is tradition...

As always the list is not extensive and has been copy pasted from a copy paste from a copy paste, so who is truly to blame for any exclusions is quite the mystery at this point.

Some FYCs, I watched them recently:

 

Amélie - It's quite well known, but in case you haven't already seen it, do it! It's heartwarming, gorgeously filmed with beautiful music. It makes you feel good like no other movie.

Amelie

 

El método (The Method) - A very interesting Spanish film with 7 people competing for the same job. They recieve different tasks, the first one is to find the company's mole among themselves. Highly recommended!

Incendies - It's one of Villeneuve's lesser known films, but trust me: it's definitely one of his best. It's eligible, because it's in French and Arabic. Filled with quite some big emotional moments, brilliant movie!

Le prénom (What's in a Name) - Another French film, one of the best comedies I've ever seen. A soon-to-be father causes a scandal when he announces the name of his future son.

Any recommendations for the remaining few days?

I'd like to watch some of these:

Die Welle (The Wave)

La Sconosciuta (The Unknown Woman)

Das Experiment (The Experiment)

Klass (The Class)

Dzien swira (Day of the Wacko)

De gronne slagtere (The Green Butchers)

Mientras duermes (Sleep Tight)

Foreign Language films made by the Hollywood system are NOT eligible (e.g. No Passion of the Christ)

Why not though? Passion would definitely make my list as well as Apocalypto.

It is just easier this way as it otherwise leads to a potential slippery slope of having to make a ruling on every Hollywood/American film where somebody speaks foreign and before you know it A Good Day to Die Hard finishes 12th and we have to dissolve the whole forum.

Also I don't want a whole thread on foreign film to just be about scoring systems. That is why I took it off the opening post and am not commenting on it. 

 

I am sorry if that irritates some people, but this is about recommend and watching great foreign cinema, and also, I don't like arguments especially online so tend to just disappear and let them disappear.

Recommending and talking about great foreign cinema is perfectly possible while other things are going on in the thread. And if you're gonna solicit these kinds of lists from a forum community, it seems like basic courtesy to 1) provide people with the information on how their lists are gonna be scored and especially 2) actually engage with perfectly valid criticisms of the initial scoring system you had. Deleting it and refusing to talk about it makes you look pretty childish, and certainly makes me want to participate in this whole thing less, especially if you still intend to score this like the summer game.
