Interesting results so far, looking forward to the rest of this list. The previous poll was, for me, one of the more interesting in my 3.5 years actively using this forum, so hoping to get some more good suggestions this time around.

And our final two-vote film sits just outside the Top 200. Edit: Oops, I missed that there's one more coming.

I thought Contagion would have jumped up the ranks since it go so much exposure during the pandemic, but I guess not. Can't complain, though, since I haven't even seen it myself. :grimacing:

I'm also loving the fact that even after 8 years on this forum, there are still films popping up in polls that I've never heard of that are seen by a fair number of people, like Marie-Octobre. I hope this forum never stops surprising me like this. :wub:

Finally on the board! I've seen 21 of the bottom 50 and... 2 of them are on my list. Pretty poor record by my standards but to be expected here I guess.

re: Atomic Blonde - I'm surprised it only got two votes; I feel like I've read a lot of praise about that film over the few years since it's been out. But maybe I'm misremembering, or maybe the people I saw praising it didn't show up to vote here.

I'm partially to blame for The Snowman's drop; I rewatched it earlier this year, and didn't like it as much as my nostalgia-laced rating had indicated. Went from a top 20 to a top 100 entry on my list for this poll.

I need to rewatch Girl, Interrupted - I haven't seen it since shortly after it came out.

The Snowman continues to be a zero-list film because of it's categorical exclusion from the IMDb Shorts list! It's got a high enough rating but since it's marked as a "tv-short" it doesn't qualify for the list.

Yup, and the same applies to two more shorts in the same vein which we will no doubt see further on up the list, as we always do:

The Snowman - 14618 votes, 8.2 avg -
A Charlie Brown Christmas - 37209 votes, 8.3 avg
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - 50913 votes, 8.3 avg

Maybe there are some others as well but I always think of these three together for obvious reasons.

Eh. It's annoying - given what certifiable classics these all are - but at least none of them are in danger of being lost to history, unlike some of the much-less known films appearing on the 0-check list. And it's just one of those little "holes" in our coverage that can't really be fixed easily I guess - certainly people have been aware of it as long as I've been here.

Yeah, I agree it's annoying, but no proposed "fix" seems to be agreed upon. I guess we could keep nominating them for DTC in the hopes they'll finally get on there.

Nope, all good. That list was updated after the end of this poll, so it was effectively ignored. The delay in getting the results up because of my computer/health problems didn't change the eligibility period of July 31st/August 1st - I used Tim's lists as my basis since it makes things so much easier, and I think he updated his list on the 1st or 2nd of August. Only 2 films might have been official before them, but they both fell under my "bouncing in and out of the bottom of a list" rule so they remained eligible.

Those two are very good. Have no idea why I didn't vote for them. One of my 2-vote films, The Perfect Circle, is also excellent, in fact, one of the most devastating films about war that I have ever seen.

And there we go, our final film with only two votes, and both of them are Top 3 votes!

Wild Goose Lake should have been ineligible last time (unless it was listed as a 2018 film back then), but I guess it was so far down the final results I missed it and forgot/didn't bother to exclude it.

Yup, and the same applies to two more shorts in the same vein which we will no doubt see further on up the list, as we always do:

The Snowman - 14618 votes, 8.2 avg -
A Charlie Brown Christmas - 37209 votes, 8.3 avg
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - 50913 votes, 8.3 avg
None of these should be listed on IMDb as "TV shorts" because the IMDb definition of a short is 21 minutes or less if a title is a television program. (Theatrical and made-for-video titles should be considered shorts if they are 44 minutes or less.) See https://help.imdb.com/article/contribut ... RGAG#short for the guide. All of these shows are longer than 21 minutes.

A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! don't have the "short" designation on IMDb any longer, which is correct in terms of IMDb policy.

After narrowly missing the main list last time, From Up on Poppy Hill moves up into the list this year. :party:

A film that received only two 1st place votes would have come in at #177 with 200 points.

Given I ranked it #1, I'm likely the biggest fan of Atomic Blonde here. While I'm happy it showed up on the list, I'm a bit surprised/disappointed it didn't rank higher: one of the best action films I've ever seen, great 80s New Wave/European soundtrack, strong cast, graphic novel visuals ... oh well

There's also several films I didn't include on my ballot that would have been justifiable, including The Wild Goose Lake that's attracted some other comments.

Haha, it wasn't my first choice, but the original screenshot I wanted to use wasn't in the right format to it to be accepted by imgur, so I chose this one instead. For the better, I suppose. :D

Is it always like that?

Not that I personally dislike the recentishness, but it almost makes one interested in an edition limited to films from before ~1980 or so. :think:

(Of course I realize we will be able to look on our own for older movies when the full poll data will be released in the end!)

In general I'm very interested in anything even loosely based on ancient or medieval history so it's a reliable way to get me to pay attention to a particular film/series.

Apparently, yes. The 1960s and previous decades are well represented on ICM Forum's 1001 Favorite Movies, but much less represented in the Films on 0 Official Lists.

Joachimt commented after the 2018 results came out:
Most people here are 20 to 35 years old. They started watching movies in the past two decades. When you start watching movies, you start with current stuff. That includes a lot of unofficial checks. When you get more into movies you start exploring older movies. Where do you start? With lists of classics of course. You don't even need iCM for that. Even if you start exploring movies without iCM, you'll end up watching mostly official classics. Only if you discover a certain area of interest you start digging deeper. Lots of people here do that, but those watches are scattered all over the place.

It's all about numbers. Unofficial checks of the past two decades have more chance to be seen by enough people than unofficial checks from 50 years ago and older. More checks = more voters in this poll.

I'm surprised Endless Night is so far down beavis's ballot, but I know he and Gloede will be pleased it showed up. :) It's our second-highest brand new entry of films from 2019-2020.

Endless Night is one of the gems from last year's ICM film Festival, and it (along with Tierra (3 votes) and The Perfect Circle (2 votes) ) deserve a lot more love. Pleased that my #6 rating has helped boost it into the top 200.

Wild Goose Lake, huh? /attentive
I have that one on DVD but i haven't seen it yet. Should make some work from it.

So far I like the results, i seem to like unofficial films for some reason.

Ben X though is bad, horrible and stereotypical depiction of ASD, even to the point that it feels offensive IMO. Any Way The Wind Blows also surprises me since a lot of the fun you'll only be able to understand if you can understand the flemish language, similarly to Ex Drummer where understanding the language (or dialect/accent) will greatly improve your appreciation for the film. Not being able to, i fear, would mean you miss out on a lot (unfortunately). Even dutch users are sort of at a disadvantage i think compared to flemish users/people. That's why it surprises me, still good to see it obv.
