It's time to showcase your favourite underappreciated gems!
· Films, mini-series, episodes from tv anthology series are all allowed
· Films that become permanently official between now and the deadline are NOT eligible (i.e. through new list adoption, being added to Criterion or TSPDT Noir list, etc.)
· List can be on imdb or icm
· Fully ranked, partially ranked, or unranked lists only (will be considered ranked unless specified); group-ranked lists will not be allowed
· Half-life will again be 50, unless the submitted lists drop drastically in size
· Final list will again be 250, unless the number of participants drops drastically
· Films that switch between official and unofficial each week because of imdb list updates are eligible
· Films from 2019 & 2020 are not eligible, just like how we do it for the 500<400 list.
· Note: Since the entire Cremaster Cycle is an official check, the individuals 1,2,4,&5 cycles are not eligible (3 is separately official as well).
Deadline for submissions
Friday, July 31st, midnight PST - this gives you just under three weeks to put together a list.
· It's an official poll, and everyone loves official things here
· It's a chance to showcase films that you think should become official
· It's going to be so unpredictable, so the entertainment value should be high (even though we've run this poll twice before, many films have become official in the meantime, so it's still somewhat unpredictable, especially in the lower regions)
All of your checks sorted by # Official Toplists and then sorted alphabetically - you'll have to go to the first page of 0 official checks to see your list.
