Hey, this actually is on my (narrow) IMDb watchlist! I mean Watership Down is my favorite 1978 film and I'm an anime fan, so ..

Let's see how far this one will make it ..
I usually remove titles I think don't have a hope. This time I left off Ringing Bell, a brilliant Japanese animated film about revenge.

Funny that you have exactly the opposite approach from Angel. He removes movies that will make it anyway and you do the other way around.

Guidance is as follows.... you list your top films from the given year. "Top" can be interpreted many ways... none more valid than any other....it's not that complicated.... :rolleyes: :D

I just find it absurd to make out of that "Your list of your top films, EXCEPT the full ten films which will score highly, so actually just your runners-up honestly" :shrug:

btw, Grease is an interesting one - just Ctrl+F the first page, it's nominated quite often and always on ranks like 1, 3 or 5.
I might even watch Killer of Sheep before the deadline to correct this poll distortion .. :yucky:

Well... some other people obviously have a different take on how to interpret "top".... It's their ballot....

GREASE has been a real surprise - pleasant one for me - but I know it is a favourite (Some millennial poll of musicals liked by UK public named it number one) although musicals don't tend to do well taking the long view.

Doesn't really affect my list but IMDb lists Capricorn One as a December 1977 release in Japan - not sure where that came from? Perhaps a typo? It seems to have premiered in June 1978 in America. Or maybe not?

IMDb lists CAPRICORN ONE as a 1977 film by virtue of that release in Japan, so as far as I'm concerned it is a 1977 film for purposes of this poll. If the information about the film being released in Japan in 1977 turns out to be incorrect, I would consider making it eligible for this poll, and if IMDb changes the film's year to 1978 before the poll ends, it would definitely be eligible. But there are some eBay-type sources which support a 1977 release in Japan:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/272536785270
https://www.ebay.com/itm/143973377256

I would note that CAPRICORN ONE was an independent production from ITC Entertainment which Warner Bros. picked up for release in the U.S., which at least seems to make it plausible that it might have been released outside the U.S. first.

A stunningly weak year for the 1970s based on my viewings so far, with even my top two as borderline cases for my all time top 300. No doubt there are some good titles that have slipped through the cracks for me so far (Fedora jumps to mind) but nothing I'm particularly likely to find before the deadline. That said, there are a few films I enjoyed from 1978:

1. Death on the Nile (John Guillermin)
2. Midnight Express (Alan Parker)
3. The Driver (Walter Hill)
4. Dawn of the Dead (George A. Romero)
5. The Boys from Brazil (Franklin J. Schaffner)
6. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Phillip Kaufman)
7. The First Great Train Robbery (Michael Crichton)

Also, remember to include the list of IMDb URLs for the films on your ballot. I've just sent PMs to everyone who hasn't yet posted the URLs for their lists, to remind them.

Also, there was an eligibility question earlier about "Centennial," a TV miniseries that started in 1978 and ended in 1979. I am allowing it for consideration in this poll because it was a miniseries (not a regular series); also, for what it's worth, when the Classic Film board on IMDb ran the predecessor poll for 1979, there were no votes for it in that year. https://filmboards.com/board/p/452/1/

I've just sent out PMs to the participants who haven't posted their lists of URLs yet, and if you are still planning to vote, please don't forget to do so. We're now in the last 24 hours of the poll. The poll officially closes on Thursday, July 22, at 7 PM US Pacific time. (Practically speaking, you will be able to vote until I finish downloading the ballots, but I'm not guaranteeing that will be much of an extension.)

Whew, just made it to my goal of 100 seen. And there are still a lot more out there, though based on my last few viewings of really acclaimed films I do wonder how many will impact my list in the future - I guess I'll have to start digging deeper. Anyway pretty happy with the list I have, particularly the top 10.

2. The Scenic Route (Mark Rappaport)
3. L'albero degli zoccoli / The Tree of Wooden Clogs (Ermanno Olmi)
4. Killer of Sheep (Charles Burnett)
5. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Philip Kaufman)
6. L'hypothèse du tableau volé / The Hypothesis of the Stolen Painting (Raoul Ruiz)
7. Blue Collar (Paul Schrader)
8. Vertical Features Remake (Peter Greenaway)
9. The Last Waltz (Martin Scorsese)
10. Dawn of the Dead (George A. Romero)

11. Filming 'Othello' (Orson Welles)
12. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni / We Spin Around the Night Consumed by Fire (Guy Debord)
13. Superman (Richard Donner) RIP
14. Shao Lin san shi liu fang / The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (Chia-Liang Liu)
15. Brutal Ardour (Manuel Huerga)
16. Halloween (John Carpenter)
17. Tout rien / All Nothing (Frédéric Back)
18. Les mains négatives / The Negative Hands (Marguerite Duras)
19. Devo: Mongoloid (Bruce Conner)
