Regarding the 2020 year-end poll

The board has spoken. We will run the 2020 year-end poll during the summer, around July.

Since 2020 was so uncertain regarding new movies, it does make sense to run it later. Even the Oscar and Golden Globe have moved up their schedule. Just as a reminder that the year end poll is not intend to be a definitive 2020 poll, but a snap shot the participant's new film watching. The later the poll take place, the less accurate the snap shot of the year-end poll. We now have a bit more certainty, we may run it a bit earlier next year if we were to do the poll. We'll see what happen then.

The duration of the poll most likely be about 3 weeks like the regular poll, instead of about 6 weeks in the past. So I would recommend that you start catching up to gather the list, including those for performances. Really interesting how it will turn out.

Thank you for your input regarding the year-end poll.


************************************************************

The next poll will be for 1929 followed by 1998.

The top 4 votes for IMDb films are the top 4 in the poll. That strikes me as unusual for this grouping but I haven’t gone to previous polls to check. Or is it just that classic status is linked with availability?

Thanks, Rufus! I love how you present the results with the list of participants, the comparisons, and the highest placings of individual titles.

Nice to see the De Palma in the top 10, and Fuller's great war film rounding out the top 20.

Definitely a year I need to see more from!
That's all, folks!

:cheers: for doing this, and also leading the consultation on 2020 poll

re these results - Wow - I know Kubrick always does well but amazed (and I'll admit it -pleased :blush:) that RAGING BULL bested - and into third place - by significant margin.

Glad that my favourite (BAD TIMING) - a difficult film to "like" - did so well -

and put me down as another glad the DePalma did so well - that long museum sequence is riveting film making.....the fact I switch off now after the first third isn't a dealbreaker - I do the same with PSYCHO... :lol:

Also a bit surprised ORDINARY PEOPLE has retained its status - should give it another go.

Yes the highest ranking info was a nice addition - :worship:

Thanks again

tim
