I didn't even know there was a weekly thread or where to find it (I don't find navigating this site very easy) but a thread on imdb2 has showed me the way so i'll try to spend some time there...
You (or other imdb1 refugees) might be interested in this "where are they now..." thread about old imdb posters on imdb2

Best of 57 predictions ????
Well neither of us would need a judge and jury to help us name the starting front runner here - Lumet's widely seen and rightly lauded liberal drama - splendid use of single set and magnificent cast at the top of their game.
If Foreignia more valued here than on old classic board as you say then I'm guessing THRONE OF BLOOD, CABIRIA and WHITE NIGHTS will place highly. EDIT and the two Bergman offerings mentioned by opio upthread
SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS and PATHS OF GLORY are much admired generally - and I'm guessing both will make top 10 (although they'll only get HMs from me)
Wilder's Christie adaptation is widely seen so might do OK too. Ditto the Sturges western.
FUNNY FACE leads a batch of above par musicals (PAL JOEY, PAJAMA GAME, SILK STOCKINGS) but can any of them break the genre curse on CFB ballots?
Good ones that may of flown under the radar - if folk looking to add to their viewing schedules - include
ABANDON SHIP/SEVEN WAVES AWAY - grim but gripping overcrowded lifeboat drama, with Tyrone Power getting one of his best roles as skipper deciding which passengers take an early bath to ensure boat does not sink
NO DOWN PAYMENT -slick soaper about 4 young married couples in new housing development, rape and racism among the subplots.
LES ESPIONS - terrific thriller from Clouzot with Ustinov and delicious Martita Hunt amongst bizarre collection of shady characers up to no good in an asylum....
CHINA GATE - my favourite Fuller - a war drama with sexy Angie Dickinson and Nat King Cole among the troops...
THE SEVENTH SIN - THE PAINTED VEIL remake with strong turns from Eleanor Parker and ideally cast George Sanders as Maugham character/narrator
JUSQUE AU DERNIER - neat "thieves fall out" thriller with exotic circus setting and early J Moreau "comforting" the gang....
