Requested movie articles[edit]

Some people would like to have entries on the following movies (A-Z):

Does anybody know if there is a list of movie soundtracks?

If not, is it worth considering?

Moved from talk: Individual Films

Bias of selection

This page is useful right now, but it will become more and more useless as more films are added. I suppose when there are lots of film, we can separate the pages alphabetically (like Yahoo/dmoz). One fun thing is the various revisions will show the popularity of films to the wiki audience...right now the listing shows a certain particular bias towards a few genres... --The Cunctator

I don't see the bias. Perhaps you can explain? --KQ

Ummm...they're pretty much all SF, action, horror, or otherwise "guy" movies, plus a few seminal works like Citizen Kane and Wild Strawberries. It's a very nerd-male list. --The Cunctator


What about doing subpages right now? --Yooden

For what? To move all the film entries on the page to subpages under Individual Films? No. --Pinkunicorn

No, one subpage per letter. --Yooden

Ah, then I follow you. Sure, go ahead. --Pinkunicorn

ooh - a subpage for Chick Movies. that's what we need. Crossing Delancy should lead the list. I vote to leave 'em here and let their enthusiasts add 'em as necessary. If (gasp) the current author-group for wikipedia overlaps with the current movie list, that's fine. --MichaelTinkler

Hey, a subpage for chick flicks would be entirely appropriate. Anyway, I have divided the alphabetical list into four pages for now, expecting further division in the future. I did it because the whole list was just too large and took too long to load. The four subpages are now reasonable in size, but as they continue to grow, they'll need further future subdivision. I tried to divide the list more or less equally. jaknouse 01:46 Apr 2, 2003 (UTC)


I'm not sure about the 'numbers' list. I think that movies like Twelve Monkeys should go in the alphabetical list and that there should be another subpage for ones that really do start with numbers, like 2001 A Space Odyssey --Basswulf 09:08 Apr 22, 2003 (UTC)

Well, I thought of only doing numbers, but if someone knows of a film that starts with a number as a word, like Seven and sees the numbers page, they'd look there, then think it's not in the database. I felt it was simpler to not make the distinction between actual numbers and the numbers as words. Paul --Rfc1394 18:20, 21 Dec 2003 (UTC)
Is there a rule that each movie must appear only once in the entire list? Because otherwise you could list each relevant movie on the numbers list and under the appropriate letter - then you wouldn't have to worry about which one it's supposed to go under, or which one people are more likely to look for it under. —Paul A 05:47, 22 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Films by language?[edit]

Is there a list of films by language? Morwen 23:57, Dec 26, 2003 (UTC)

Films by location[edit]

List of movies set in Los Angeles, List of movies set in New York City and List of movies set in Hong Kong should be added, but I'm not sure how to lay it out. Edward 18:30, 24 Mar 2004 (UTC)
