    What's a regular voter?

    Like once a month or more along the lines of xyz films rated?
    IMDB does not say what exactly a 'regular voter' is but there is speculation is that it is people who have made over 1300 ratings and therefore watched a lot of films/TV shows.

    If you are a keen film fan and watch a lot of films it is not too hard to see 1300 films, I have seen just over 1100.

    i have i think 700-800 ratings on IMDB.

    yes i have seen probably quite a few more films than that. but who remembers a movie you saw at night 4 years ago?

    its not like i rush to imdb after every film i see on tv. just once i purposely watch, not ah its on tv lets watch it ones.

    855 ratings minus say 25 series makes 830 movies rated on there. i think that should be enough for me to be a regular voter.

    17/250

    IMO Armageddon, Titanic and The Devil's Advocate should all be in the Top 250!

    I wonder if an icheckmovies.com thread would work. Perhaps a thread devoted to the '1001 Films to See Before You Die' list?

    I refuse to see the rest on the list. I can say with a decided confidence that my viewing experience won't change from seeing Ratatouille, The Princess Bride or Three Idiots.

    I started following the official? list on icheckmovies.com; the IMDb Top 100. I've seen about 400 from there, and it's definitely a lifetime achievement kinda thing.
    Watch Ratatouille and Three Idiots.

    Ratatouille only if he/she likes animated films. It was on of the few animated films I didn't hate. The only one I like that I remember right now is Ice Age. But the latter ones are worse than the first even.

    Three Idiots is brilliant, so should watch it to get to 230!!!!!

    tl;dr

    Give a proper response as to why you find my suggestions laughable.

    i've got 349, though i've stopped using lovefilm when i started uni and so i watch less mainstream stuff now than i used to. i want to get over half on it one day, but not as a conscious project, just as a by-product of my cinematic exploration.
    that said, i haven't seen 3 idiots, but dismissing bollywood is terribly (too) easy, in my experience. and pixar are great, don't know why you're snobbing out there. and of course idi i smotri is just about the best war film ever made. high and low and anatomy of a murder are also really great. so you still have some progress to make in the imdb list without degrading yourself or whatever

    I have a somewhat similar approach. I'd like to get through the list, though would not go through any serious trouble to do so.

    Since I started using icheckmovies.com, I've abandoned 250films altogether. I think my number on the former is 238 now. Nevertheless, I still have yet to see Three Idiots, The Princess Bride and Rattatouille.

    The reason I haven't watched the latter of those films is simply due to the fact that I can't stand Pixar or their facsimile. I absolutely detest a large amount of animation now; much of it, sad to say, as I used to be a huge fan, is throwaway folderol, or as someone once referred to them all, 'post-millennium cock-cud'.

    High and Low is perhaps my favourite Kurosawa film; oddly enough, I have a greater enthusiasm for his noir films than I did his trademark samurai work.
