The Host's Hot Take
Pretty expected results, I'd say, though it's nice to see that the forum has such a big appreciation for Japanese cinema, with no film getting more than 3 #1 spots, and producing one of our largest top lists for these polls, spreading the wealth among a number of films. Classic post-war cinema dominated, but 21st century films were the second-biggest bunch, showing two distinct time periods that our users tend to appreciate. Kurosawa and Ghibli did very well, naturally, with few other surprises among the results. Human Condition 1 & 3 making the top 20, and then 2 down at #50 is a bit surprising to me, but it's nice that all three made the final list. I'll add a few lists for popular directors, as it's a bit hard to see them in the top lists. Some surprising choices there, I think, in terms of which films garnered support and which didn't.


Next up: Canada, then Spain

Yep, still private. Almost finished. Had to split the posts into three instead of the usual two because of character limits; normally I'd have everything done at the same time as posting.

It was the first thing I noticed. Feels shocking to me. The second film is the best of the trilogy in my opinion. I know I'm in the minority there, but I'm surprised that the forum's regard for #2 is so much lower than for the first and third chapters.

And the only #1 vote for Harakiri was from a ballot with only 10 films, so it received half the number of points as other #1 votes.

In the main forum poll last year they were much closer: #11, #17, and #20. It's when you only have 20 slots that people have to start making tough decisions.

I love this so much.
Thanks for your work, for the whole country polls. Thanks to (and for) the Forum and their fantastic collected tastes. Thanks for Japan and their incredible film culture (l)

Might comment on a thing or two tomorrow.
But for now:
1.: Human Condition 2 so far off - I understand it. Response overall isn't as strong as for 1 and 3. Additionally, some people might even only vote for Part 1 to represent the whole trilogy. I went for Part 3 instead, the one to finally break me. (joachim had a similar reaction to the movie, it seems.)
2. The insane director dominance in the Top 20, with a lot of the names continuing in the Top 50 and extending for the Top 100(+6). Those are TITANS. :satstunned: It wasn't this extreme for France, afair, maybe not even for Germany (at least it shouldn't if people voted right tehe ), and I'm sure as hell it hadn't that look for the US of A. :sweat:

I've made an imdb list for all the movies that made it including the runners-up with 20+ points.

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls563221716/

Japan is my favorite non-English language country for films and these polls are a great way to find new films to watch.

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls563221716/

Japan is my favorite non-English language country for films and these polls are a great way to find new films to watch.
Keep in mind it's only the first 126 films that have 20+ points. The ones ranked beyond that had 3+ voters or #1 votes (plus I included Air Doll because it's your screen name and almost made the runners-up cutoff :D )

Edit: Speaking of screen names, I was surprised Lonewolf didn't vote for any of the Lone Wolf and Cub films, and that none of them got much attention.

We should consider the possibility that the Lone Wolf and Cub series was named after Lonewolf rather than the other way around.

Keep in mind it's only the first 126 films that have 20+ points. The ones ranked beyond that had 3+ voters or #1 votes (plus I included Air Doll because it's your screen name and almost made the runners-up cutoff :D )


Air Doll is whose screen name?

Thank you (l) (l) Loved seeing it even if at the bottom.
I'm very happy with the list, thanks to all voters! Currently missing 9, highest one being Sound of the Mountain. I think I expected Ozu to be one of the top 3 most represented directors, but this top 5 is more aligned with my taste. No Kinoshita though? The main reason I haven't seen Imamura's Narayama yet is that I liked the original so much that I expect it to be lesser than... His films did fine in 500<400 too.

seen 103/105 only this duo to go:

#68 My Neighbors the Yamadas
#69 Empire of Passion

I've seen a lot of anime already this year, so I guess I'll get to Yamadas too
not sure if it's an appropriate double bill with Empire of Passion... :)

84/1050 for me. With just 1 unofficial film (my number 1), there's not much to look forward to.

Yamadas is one of the best IMO and also one of the ones I can imagine working the best for you.

I'm always surprised by just how popular Seppuku is here, and interesting to see Kobayashi and Teshigara having the films that won this and the forum poll with Kurosawa coming in 2nd each time.

Happy 3 Yoshidas at least made the cut.

In terms of stats, I am at 102/105. The 3 I'm missing are:

38. Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion
86. Avalon
102. Dead Leaves

Will likely make the last two priorities.

I will probably watched the Evangelion franchise at some point, but it is not particularly calling me.

Avalon is great. Not sure how you'll take the cyberpunk/fantasy angle, but the East-European vibes should fit you very much

Yeah, Avalon definitely looks like a wild trip!

(I think I turned it off years ago thinking it was dubbed :D )
