    You seen the other 62?!?!

    :eek::eek2::eek::eek2:
    They are all critically acclaimed or massively popular films - I would have thought most people had seen the majority of them.

    Although it's odd how there isn't a single Coen brothers film. How can they miss out Fargo in the crime group and No Country For Old Men in the western group. They both received multiple Academy Award nominations and wins, and the former is in the National Film Registry.

    Nope, I'm not into films really. :l
    Fair enough. Thanks for dropping in anyway. You can still vote on the other films in the competition in this sub-forum.

    16 polls up atm.

    Ok, now I'm feeling stupid... I just took the bottom number... which happens to be 6 in all sections...
    It's my fault for being too lazy to re-order them tbh.

    So far most people are around the halfway mark it seems.

    The list was based off IMDB rankings firstly then categorized since this was thought to be a fair way.

    I've seen 46. But there are some real oddball choices:

    Terminator 2 but not The Terminator!?

    The Green Mile. I mean, it's OK, but not in the same leauge as most of the others.

    Avengers Assemble!?

    Animation: nothing from Japan? Really? The top few animated films of all time are Anime (IMHO).

    I am mediumly interested to make up a "Which films have you seen?" poll with a massive 64 options to see what the spread is like across them all.

    Good plan or is 64 way too many options?
    (I'd probably need to mess in AdminCP to even allow it)

    10 (5 of which were from animation alone). That's really awful considering I'm going to apply to do a combined course including Film Studies at university.

    The film list was based off the IMDB rankings and then split by Genre.

    Terminator 2 was the higher rank. Star Wars 5 as well instead of 4. Dark Knight not batman begins. Toy Story 3 but no 1 or 2.

    We were trying to avoid multiple films from the same series.
    Alien/Aliens only made it since they're different Genres/Directors.

    Anime is very popular among some dedicated users but it doesn't rank as hgih on IMDB which formed the framework of the list.

    Correction, 11. Didn't notice American Beauty.

    So that brings my list to: American Beauty, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Avengers Assemble, Star Wars Ep. 5, Inception, The Lion King, Monsters Inc, How to Train Your Dragon, WALL.E and Finding Nemo.

    I only posted on this thread because it appeared in "Latest Discussions", so I haven't seen the polls, no.

    I thought so, We seem to have shot to the top of popular discussions as well.

    Go check them out. Movie Madness is a sub -forum of Film for the next month and we have lots of polls going on to find the TSR N1 film.
