But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

The same as what I put in another thread, so to differentiate, I will extend this one:
1. My Friend ‘A’
2. Ode to the Goose
3. An Elephant Sitting Still
4. Dead Souls
5. A Land Imagined
6. Hidden Man
7. Shadow
8. The Chrysanthemum & The Guillotine

Edit: the gap between 7 & 8 is a bridge too far. If you know what was #9, you know. :party: :folded:
Edit 2: finally ready to put CatG in.

I just watched my 8th movie from 2018. Rated two movies above 7/10, so not a lot to vote for. Maybe I'll watch some more and vote right before the deadline.
This is why I don't think a poll like this should not be done until summer. many (most) of us still haven't seen the lion's share of notable films from 2018, much less scratched too far below the surface and discovered the less notable stuff.

so anyway, i'll probably abstain. whatever list i could come up with now will be rendered a joke by mid year.

You have to at least give it a year/year and a half if you care about Asian cinema.

In the meantime my list has grown to eight movies rated above 7/10. But five of those are 2017-movies that were released in January 2018 here. <_<

Don't worry too much if you don't get to scratch too deep into the crop of movies. As I mentioned earlier, this year-end poll is not to be too formal. One of great result coming from this exercise is to get recommendation from each others. I am grateful that many lists so far have more than half of the recommended movies I have not been aware of and which I am catching up to or put on to watch list if I don't get to see by end of the poll.

The Year-by-Year Poll have been picking years from over 10 years ago. This best of previous year is the only exception. It has been the tradition back in the IMDb days to do this when the calendar turned over to January while the feel of the previous year is still around. I am not sure if I would care or would have as much fun in allocating much time to watch many movies from last year when I rather be outside or watch movies also from other years.

When enough people participate, the results so far have been a decent list every year, which I think we did last year. In 10 years, we can have a more official list to compare with this initial list :)

2. Aquarela (Victor Kossakovsky)
3. The Other Side of the Wind (Orson Welles)
4. BlacKkKlansman (Spike Lee)

Or horror cinema.



I wasn't going to participate since I've barely seen or liked any, but I saw there's no minimum so eh, here you go:

1. A Quiet Place
2. Hereditary
3. Searching

Haven't been impressed with any acting performances so no votes from me.

People posting here about movies they merely thought were ok vastly diminishes the value of the resulting list and ensures it will be dominated by mediocre blockbusters. If you didn’t see anything you really loved from 2018, why post a list?

Did people say that? I thought people mainly said they posted short lists because they didn't see enough valuable. I surely won't lower my standards because I haven't seen enough. Still 8/10 and higher for me, just like any other year-by-year-poll.

This is true for the ordinary poll. We are just getting a flavor from last year since many people won't get to see many of the films. It is up to the person. The way it is scored, garbage films in a short list probably won't make it to the final list, at least I hope for certain films I am thinking of. :unsure:

Uh no, I only voted for the very few favourites that I had. I only meant I had only seen a few, and only had a few favourites (normally would only vote if I had at least 10 favourites). I would never vote for something I only thought was ok.

You deliberately didn't quote the "so no votes from me" part, because that totally undermines your comment in this regard?

Acting performances have nothing to do with whether I love the film or not. I love plenty of films where I wasn’t particularly impressed with performances - that doesn’t mean they’re bad performances just not special enough to consider. That’s why I voted for favourite films not favourite performances and mentioned ‘so no votes from me’ for that particular part of the voting process.

It's up to you if you're not interested in reflecting and re-interpreting someone after they've explained something to you, but I think if you'd read the entire sentence then you'd be justified in understanding my actual comment. Why would I say no votes from me right after voting if that was what I meant?

My reply implies that I have reinterpreted based on new information, is that not obvious? The no votes is of no consequence to the point I was making, as I would assume that for most who would make a list of favourite films for the year, being impressed by a single performance in the whole year is a pretty low bar to meet.

I can rarely name a single performance in a year that impresses me so for me it's not that unusual. Same goes for editing/directing/script/music etc. I am wowed by those singular things very rarely, regardless of whether I liked the film as a whole or not.

several 2017 releases in countries of origin did not go on general release in UK til 2018

1) THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI (2017)
2) HEREDITARY
3) L'AMANT DOUBLE/DOUBLE LOVER (2017)
4) I TONYA (2017)
5) A SIMPLE FAVOUR
6) CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?
7) BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE
8) THE FAVOURITE
9) BLACKKKLANSMAN
10) A QUIET PLACE
11) WONDER WHEEL (2017)
12) MOLLY'S GAME
13) GRINGO
14) IDEAL HOME
15) BECOMING BOND (2017)
16) DEADPOOL 2
17) TULLY
18) PHANTOM THREAD (2017)
19) MARJORIE PRIME (2017)
20) A VERY ENGLISH SCANDAL (TV)



Several likely ones unseen (SUSPIRIA, THE ASPERN PAPERS, and of course RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK :angry: ) The Welles disappointed.

listing and ranking actors requires more time than I have available... - - but I'll give a shout to Cynthia Erivo, who made much of a nothing role in WIDOWS and then made much of a really juicy one in BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE. Would love to see her in a proper musical. Jeremie Renier played twins convincingly in DOUBLE LOVER... Blake Lively in A SIMPLE FAVOUR, Charlize Theron in GRINGO and Toni Collette in HEREDITARY were impressive, as wereJoel Edgerton in BOY ERASED (although the film a disappointment) and Ethan Hawke in FIRST REFORMED (Film ditto).. and yes - all the ladies in THE FAVOURITE seemed to be having fun... but don't overlook a bewigged Nicholas Hoult :lol: :rolleyes:


Guilty Pleasure of the year - RED SPARROW was fairly hilarious

Still seen less than 20 films from 2018, and only two of the films I have seen so far are likely to be on the top 10 at the end of the year (Cold War + Old Man & the Gun).

I won't contribute this time, but I am really looking forward to the results.

Not sure why you're making a new post every time you make changes, but you could at least edit out the old ones?

Because I have no idea how the organizer is keeping track of everything. What do you mean by "editing out the old ones"?

I assume he means editing the posts with your two earlier lists and deleting the contents of those, so that only your latest post has an actual list, which would be the most up-to-date one.
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

Is it allowed to edit a submission before the deadline without posting about your edit? Or will the host miss your edit then? With all the other polls we use iCM or IMDb lists which you can upload, because the host downloads it after the deadline. Those the host of the y-b-y-polls collect the votes from this thread after the deadline or does he collect them every time something is posted?

The wordings in the original post seems to suggest you can edit your post until the deadline? The fact that people, including the host himself, have made multiple edits to a single submission would suggest the same? If you want to make a new post every time you want to change something, fair enough, but is there a need to keep the previous versions in the thread? It seems like unnecessary complication does it not? In the end, I don't care how many posts each individual makes, I don't run this thing, I just made a short comment on it, is there a need for this patronising reply?

The posts show when they were last edited; as long as the host/counter keeps track of this when counting, if counting before the poll ends, it's no big deal.

Huh? How is my post patronising? I just ask questions about how the host works. Do you read anything between my questions?
The OP says "You may update your ballot at any time before the poll closes". This could mean editing your post or posting an update in a new one. I just want to clarify.
