Thanks gromit!

This caught my eye:

Rank Title AKA Director Points Received Number of Ballots Number of IMDB Votes Link
74 Verhängnis Fate Fred Kelemen 33.0 3 79 :imdb:


I was looking for subs for this a while back, but apparently none exist. Has the situation changed? Or do all the voters just happen to be German speakers? :(

Incredibly fast result (long live scripts).

Some thoughts:
- Expected winner (can't complain)
- Semi-surprised (though I suppose more disappointed) that Red and even Shawshank beat Chungking Express (granted, the 3 were reasonably close)
- That is an incredible amount of #1s for Satantango, it should honestly have been even higher with that kind of support (And it is far, far from my favourite Tarr :D )
- Good to have Forrest Gump outside the top 10, but it could always be lower
- Seems we need to ramp up US Go Home, strange, but expected, to see a forum favourite fly under the top 20 (this consistently happens to 500<400 films of course, but few have more loud adoration)
- JLG/JLG is one of two Godard films/series I have not seen - should have caught it before deadline ...
- The list seems consistently interesting until the end
- Really enjoying the "Your mileage may vary" info/category

Some stats:
Seen: 53/91
Seen: 70/208
Position of #1: 4
Highest dislike: The Stand (#102)

Top 10 highest unseen:
21. Eat Drink Man Woman (Not a fan of Lee, but should finally get around to it)
35. Wrony
38. Muriel's Wedding
40. Little Women
42. Picture of Light
43. Once Were Warriors
48. Shallow Grave
49. In the Heat of the Sun (Meant to see this before the deadline :( )
50. A Pure Formality (Been meaning to see this for years)
52. Vanya on 42nd Street (Been meaning to see this for years)

Really surprising. With every #1 vote appearing I actually thought it had a chance of winning (I mostly only glanced at people's #1), but it's not even top 5?! :angry:

Ha, I didn't expect Ken Burn's Baseball to make the cut. So there are a couple others here like it too. I was hoping to see Sátántangó for the poll, just too long for a movie that I need to read subtitle. I will definitely visit it some day. Thanks gromit for the poll result.

The important thing is how the "Little" quintet did:

Little Women - #40
Little Odessa - #179
The Little Rascals - #207
Little Big League - no votes
Little Giants - no votes

gromit, can you change the iCM-list so it contains only the top 91 as shown in the OP? All the other yby-iCM-lists only include the cut-off-list and not all votes (as far as I can see).

Sorry, I forgot about this request. Is there really a consensus to not have the complete list? If that's the consensus, I will take the films below #91 off the list.

For other polls we normally have a top list for the "real" list and an "all votes" list on the side. All the other yby-polls only have a "real" list.
I bumped into this one, because I combine all forum created lists into one giant recommendation-list and cross-reference it with VOD-services. So then a movie popped up on Prime and I noticed it's somewhere outside the top 100 of this list. That's not really a recommendation in my book, if it was voted for by one or maybe two people. I don't encounter this problem with other yby-polls.
