Top 250 list filtered by movies I've watched, but have not rated ...

Is it possible to get a list of Top 250 movies I haven't watched, but not in the way it is currently implemented by excluding movies I rated, but in the way that I just mark movie as watched, and have it excluded from the list. Reason I don't like the way it is currently implemented is because I don't remember all the movies I watched enough to be confident about rating I am about to give.

Thanks

You can use advanced title search:

http://www.imdb.com/search/title?grou...

You can select the top 250 and then at the bottom are two boxes, one to include lists and one to exclude them. So if you have a watched list then you can use that in the exclude field (the key is the ! switch):

www.imdb.com/search/title?groups=top_...

Obviously that link only works for me - change the list ID for your own watched list (making sure you leave the ! in).

You might even spot some oddities - where you've rated something but it isn't in your watched list but I had that with 2001 and I'd apparently not had it on that list (so it is a human problem not a search one).

Reason I don't like the way it is currently implemented is because I don't remember all the movies I watched enough to be confident about rating I am about to give.


I know that feeling, I have a stack of DVDs ready for a rewatch to ensure I get the ratings right (one of them is Kurosawa's samurai films that I want to rate right, as the differences are only going to be subtle).

Hello Emperor,

Thanks for answering! ... your solution is very interesting, and I basically got what I've wanted! :) ... it seems I wasn't really familiar with IMDB site options ;)

Best wishes,

MS
