Yeah, but do you really think anybody else here would have figures like that? If for example I just go by the opposite criteria - IMDb rating 7.0+, films that you rate, say, 2 points lower or more, and filter out shorts and obscure films, I get a list that's mostly mainstream American films of the last 30 years, with I'm guessing no more than 5 films from TSP on it. Now I may be overly generous or overly "cineaste-mainstream", certainly compared to you, but I really don't think there are many people here who are going to have lists full of Citizen Kane, Vertigo, 2001, etc; I suspect most lists would be closer to mine than yours. I mean, those films tend to dominate our all-time list just like they do TSP, S&S, etc.Onderhond wrote: ↑January 9th, 2020, 7:23 pmWould that really be the case? I probably end up with 80% of my votes on the TSPDT list.
Of course with a fairly small group of users, like this poll had, anything can happen. But I suspect the results would, like the results here, have just a bit to say about the user base, and not that much to say about the films themselves or any kind of trends. This was an interesting exercise but I have to agree with the users that suggest that it has little utility for them; of the 37 films I haven't seen all were familiar to me, only a handful look interesting, and most are films I've always avoided for a reason. And though many of my favorites were near the top, as well as some films I hated, that doesn't really make it particularly interesting either.
I guess when it comes down to it this kind of exercise is fairly useless IMO, certainly less interesting than most of the other polls we've done. But I'm glad we did it once anyway just for the hell of it.
