Setting up the 2022 Poll schedule - Final Poll

#1

Post by Lonewolf2003 »

After we first nominated options and thinned the field in the preliminarily polls, now it's time to chose which eight options will fill the remaining spots in the 2022 Poll schedule. The 18 best performing options of the two preliminarily polls made this final poll, since four tied for the 16th place.

You do not have to use all 8 votes; best is to only vote for options you yourself will actively participate in or you think we as a forum can produce a sufficient and interesting list for.

If you have any question about an option, please feel free to ask here.

For those who want an overlap with the challenges, here is the 2022 Challenge schedule:
Spoiler
2022 Challenge Schedule
MonthCountry ChallengeTheme ChallengeTheme Challenge
January Germany/Austria/Switzerland/Liechtenstein Sci-Fi/Fantasy 1000<400
February Southeast Asia Academy Award Nominees 366 Weird + Other Weird Lists
March Sub-Saharan Africa Directed by Women New Releases
April Iberia (Spain, Portugal and surrounds) Doubling the Canon Nominees 1990s
May China/Hong Kong/Taiwan Western Religion, Cults & Sorcercy
June Nordic countries Run the Director TSPDT + TSP 21C
July Canada Unofficial Someone Else's Top/<400 List
August Russia/USSR <400 Checks One Film From Each iCM list
September Mexico, Central America & Caribbean Silent Era Travel the World
October Indian Subcontinent Horror One Film From Each Year
November Eastern Europe - excluding Russia/Poland/Czech/Slovak/Hungary Film Noir Animation
December Turkey and Caucasus Documentary Grindhouse & Cult
After the results are in and the final 8 know in this thread we will discuss how to schedule them in. Potential ties in the results will also be discussed here to decide a winner.

If On 0 Official Lists is voted in, there will be a follow-up poll to decide about making it (bi-)annual.

There is also a separate poll about holding a favorite actors poll in 2022: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5670

I voted for
contemporary b&w
Animation
Chinese
Horror
Noir
Nordic
0 official lists
Sci-fi

I would normally vote action too, but it's probably best to pair with a challenge in 2022.

One additional question, for music video's do they have to be on a site? I really like some music video's but I don't think they are on IMDb.

I assume that it would make things much easier for whoever conducts the music video poll if all the videos voted for are listed on IMDb or ICM.

But if that the Music Videos poll is selected to be conducted in 2022, your best option would be to start getting the unlisted videos you like to be included in IMDb. I am sure there are some participants here who would be willing to help in getting some music videos listed in IMDb. (And as long as a title is listed in IMDb, ICM is willing to add it as well; see https://beta.icheckmovies.com/movies/add for the link there.)

Yes, i do have my music videos, but IMDb isn't complete in that, and it really bothers me a lot, if we are holding such a poll, that i might not be able to vote for 90% of those videos.

For the script to work they indeed have to be on IMDb or ICM.

Well for that reason, i don't think music video's is a good idea. How to determine a music video is good. Is the music important, or is the filming is the most important, i really don't know. All of the music video's i like are pretty weird.

I once tried to add Dream Fortress by Grimes and it still isn't added. Even though the director is Anastasia Shulepova who made a few unknown short movies as of late. I really like the style though (but it's quite arthouse-y).

With all the weird music tastes forum users here have, i really doubt there would be a consensus on music videos, if such a list is created. Most people also don't watch music videos for film purposes.

But most importantly, every music video i want to submit isn't on IMDb or ICM.

As it stands there will be no geography based poll next year, which I find a shame. It's nice to use poll as an excuse to do a deeper dive into a country/region.

It's a shame, but I could really use that additional year time to be able to compose a better list. Especially since I wanted to focus more on Chinese cinema (only seen 9 greater China films).

Nordic cinema, i have some i wanted to see, but it's relatively one of my better regions with 38 films seen (3 finnish, 6 norwegian, 8 icelandic, 9 swedish, 12 danish seen - i have seen more danish films than italian, spanish, dutch, USSR, greater china or australian ones), but there are plenty to be seen (esp. in Denmark, but also Ingmar Bergman's films). If we hold a Nordic list next year, i'll certainly participate, and focus a bit to watch a few more, also take a dive into Ingmar Bergman).

I hope we hold a geography challenge, it feels a bit unfair if we don't hold one, because they all lose narrowly in the poll.

The other geography ones are probably a bit too narrowfocused or specific niche lists with too little interest probably, even if it would be nice for filling the map.

For music videos, i have a question. It seems it is currently making the cut.

Will the organizer (or the one that will organize it) help me adding music videos to IMDb and ICM so that at the very least... i can participate (lol). I would love to participate, but i don't want to if 90% of the music videos aren't going to be on either site.

Like i've tried it for my fav music video so often (and she even directs full movies now), which is Grimes - Dream Fortress.

Like for my other music video's, i'll use RYM as a guide like

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/music ... ydreaming/

this one will certainly make it (it has only 1 vote on RYM) but it'll be very high on my list.

There probably are people who can help or give you tips on how to add them to IMDb.

Do you have any idea why IMDb doesn’t accept your additions? Maybe you miss some required information for them?

To let polls as much as possible occur at the same time as corresponding challenges I made the following concept schedule. Would love to hear some feedback.

2022 Poll Concept schedule
JanuarySci-fi (3rd edition)
February-
March1001 Favourite Films (annual)
April-
May1990s (2nd edition)
JuneBest Swansong (final directing work)
July On 0 Official Lists
August-
September500<400 (annual)
October2000s (2nd edition)
NovemberHorror (8th edition) or Noirs (2nd edition)
December -
Directors (annual)


Still to place:
Low Rating
Contemporary black & white films (b/w movies made after +/-1968)
Music Videos
Noir or Horror

There will also be a Favorite Actors poll in 2022. But that can be held any month the host wants to. Although I would advice against holding it March or September.

Low Rating kinda makes sense in February, since that's known as a dumping month in Hollywood. Makes sense to me to do Horror in November as many will just have watched plenty of it and then Noir in December by the same logic.

I agree with this logic. And then I would place Music Videos in August since that is the latest slot left, which gives the most time to add them to IMDb/iCM.

I would propose Low Rating in january and Sci-Fi in February to give people the time to watch Sci-fi for the Sci-Fi challenge in january. If that's not possible, there could be a slighter late deadline than usual (second week february?) with presentation in other half of february. It's possible the presentation of the director's poll might be a bit later too, because of the holidays.

I agree with music video's in august and contemporary b&w in april, and the other suggestions as well.

I put sci-fi in January (and other ones in the same month as the corresponding challenge) so people have that whole month to watch those kind of movies for that challenge and update their list meanwhile. If the deadline is in the last weekend or days of that month everyone has enough time to do so. With the presentation soon after so people are still hyped for that kind of list due to the challenge.
I could of course place them all a month later if people agree that’s better.

Yes, but it feels like it's not consistent with noir & horror which are placed a month later.

That's because 2000s is already placed in October. Since the decade polls are always placed in May and October. I could of course move 2000s to December (or August) and Horror to October and Noir to November.

Horror used to be done annually, how was it done back than? It was held everyyear till 2018. Were the decade polls in May & October than? Maybe if it is tradition, some people will count on the decade polls being held than, i think (esp. people that only participate in the decade polls, and tend to lurk a bit more, or not be active every day).

Another solution is perhaps moving Best swansong to january, Sci-Fi to February and Low Rating to June, if people think Low Rating is better being held in june than in january (or february), but it's possible there's a reason why best swansong is placed in june (and i don't know what one).

Otherwise, we will just have to live with a universe that is not perfect, with sci-fi in the same month as the challenge, while horror & noir a month later. Not like we're commiting a murder by doing it that way. So certainly not a big deal.

December also will have two polls already, so take that into consideration. Perhaps it's interesting to take into consideration in which months the boards tend to be more active on ICM. I don't know what time periods lead to more activity, but I believe the summer months for northern hemisphere (july, august) in general are maybe not a good idea either? October might be an active month due to it being associated as the horror month (while november maybe too because of noirvember?). April-May seems a good slot too? I don't know if there are big events next year, there are the Olympic Winter Games in february (which is why the Academy Awards will be held later, i think it was somewhere in march) and there's a World Cup Football in december, but i'm not sure if this forum boards has a lot of people who are into sports or football (but for other reasons, december might not be a good idea anyway - not to mention the holidays).

I placed Best Swansong in June because of the Run the Director challenge in June. Not as completely overlapping as other polls and challenge, but RtD might be a good incentive to watch the last movie of the director(s) people are working on for the challenge.
Teproc's reason to do Low Rating in February is as good as any to me, do you have any reasons why it's better to do it in June?
Otherwise, we will just have to live with a universe that is not perfect, with sci-fi in the same month as the challenge, while horror & noir a month later. Not like we're commiting a murder by doing it that way. So certainly not a big deal.
Are you sure it isn't murder? I don't want to stand trail, that reduces my moviewatching time :lol:

Btw, about next month Directors poll being closed later you can ask pitchorneirda, he will be hosting it. viewtopic.php?t=1183&view=unread#unread

I prefer option 1, and switch low rating with scifi. We just had a low rating challenge in 2021, I think, so might as well give scifi that extra month so people can catch up on films they discover from other people watching them in the challenge in January.

As long as 0 Official Lists stays in July, though, I'm not too bothered. Only 1 of my 7 final ballot votes made the list, so I'll be participating in fewer polls next year. It'll be the first year in a while, perhaps since I joined the forum, that planning for polls won't be one of the biggest factors in deciding what I watch each month. :D

I actually try to do that, but it seems often hard & pointless because there are an endless number of movies, and it might work somewhat demotivating, especially as i like variety and diversity and not watching one kind of movie, but I do like sci-fi. It's just there are so many movies - as with every list - and i have seen so little that I absolutely cannot watch everything, even if only the ones i want to see. Because that's simply not do-able and wouldn't be fun at all, especially considering we have plenty of other polls too (like the country top 20 polls). But i'll try to do what I can and pick some ones i want to see.

I will likely participate in sci-fi, our top list in march, 1990s, horror, 0 official lists and 2000s. They are all kind of big pool films, so except maybe for sci-fi and horror, and maybe making some picks to watch from the 1990s and the 2000s, i'm just going to watch what I want to watch and early on what is available on streaming services. That works best actually for me.

That would make it:

NovemberHorror (8th edition)
December Noirs (2nd edition)

I kept Best Swansong in June and didn't move that to January, cause we/I/the host needs some time to make a masterlist of all eligible movies for that (like we did with the Debuts poll).

Looks good to me, but please just throw in the actors poll somewhere so we don't forget it. And feel free to call it Actors & Actresses since it seems to confuse people just saying Actors.

Okay, since there is no feedback anymore. This will be set. I put Favorite Actors (and Actresses) in June for now, but the host is free to chose a month that most suits them.
