Also I didn't write anything about those who mock "official status-only watchers"
See, then I didn't really get the gist of your post
The way I read it you did, the film you then referenced would be a perfect example of why people would "mock" those people, since it only rose in fame after it surfaced in an official list. My mistake though!
Ahhh, I understand. Yes, it is a good example. I also think that people who are truly unconcerned with the officialness of a movie, like you seem to be, tend to be somewhat more relaxed about the matter, and have a lesser inkling to mock those who are.
The Highland triology hasn't popped up so far, Black Harvest
is surely appearing later in this list, but I'm worried about the first two installments, First Contact
and Joe Leahy's Neighbours
not making it (I specifically watched them both for this vote), which is quite a shame as they are very good and set the stage for Black Harvest
. But unlike Black Harvest, the first two are in no official lists, which is likely the main cause why they didn't make it (if in fact they didn't make it). It'll be another good example of how the official status is shaping viewing behavior. If you think of it, it's pretty unusual that a sequel of sequel makes it into the poll but not the original.
But it's also partly my fault, because this time I forgot to bribe Monty into submitting a list.
But it's not over till it's over, so I keep my fingers crossed.
