KEY
COLUMN 1
FILM TITLE.   A title in red means the film is IMO outside the Fantastic genre.  Why is it on the list?  Other list-makers called it Fantastic.
In many cases, the indefinite and definite articles THE, AN, and A, as well as non-English counterparts, such as UN, UNE, LE, LA, LES, DER (and so forth), are omitted from the beginning of the film title.

COLUMN 2
YEAR OF RELEASE.  Alternate Titles (see Column 5) left blank.  A matter of accounting.

COLUMN 3
TYPES.  See WELCOME Page (February 2013).  An interesting way to think about the genre.  Alternate Titles (see Column 5) left blank. 

(x) means the film is IMO outside the Fantastic genre. 

COLUMN 4
GRADE.  My opinion of the film.  Letter grades A+ A A-  B+ B/B+ B B-  C D F

Shorts (generally, anything under 50 minutes) and Borderline Types (J,M,Q) have their grades in parentheses.  

Non-Genre are filled in as (x).  

Alternate Titles (see Column 5) are left blank.

COLUMN 5
ONE-LINE REVIEW.  Alternate Titles begin "SEE," pointing to the Main Title.

COLUMN 6
SOURCES.  Online links provided, but today's availability may be tomorrow's scrub.

DURATION.  If any, given, for ID purposes, in minutes and seconds, as 0:30 (30 seconds), 1:00 (one minute), or 67:42 (67 minutes, 42 seconds).  Extraneous footage disregarded.
