It's going to be fascinating to see how the foreign films do --- Seven Samauri, Wings of Desire, Spirited Away, The Bicycle Thief, 8 1/2, Truffaut, Bergman, Godard, etc., etc.

With my name, would I be classified under T or G, considering RK is already implementing "The" to be put last with movie title nominations.


Silly Trumpet. Your username starts with G. (well, ignore "the"). Good question, though.


what about me?  i'm one word: "themodernage02".

hey!  NO influencing the votes!
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

But your name really has three words in it, doesn't it? :wink:

As a general rule, ignore "the"...

will everyones ballots of nominations be posted after the voting is complete?  it might be interesting (just as the sight and sound) to see who picked what movies for consideration to further illustrate the boards tastes/personalities.

No. It's confidential. They can post their ballots if they want, of course (after it's done).

Also, just a note.

Before you submit your ballot, make sure you've got your title correct.  

What I mean is a vote for "The Ghostbuster" does not count as a vote for "Ghostbusters".

There's a difference between "The Killer" and "The Killers".


Thank you

I bet none of those, besides maybe 8 1/2, make the list. With this in mind, what is the most unlikely film that could end up making the Top 15?

(also, let it be known, I have made no position on where I stand voting wise, I'm just guessing logistics to what will win all around.)

From Justin to Kelly
The Real Cancun
Kangaroo Jack
Bringing Down the House
Deliver Us From Eva

That's from this year alone.  And I'm sorry in advance if I influenced the votes.  :-D

Those sending votes to me:  I would appreciate it if you list movies starting with "The" like so "Movie, The".

This way I can copy your list and feed it directly into my automated vote counting mechanism (it runs on diesel)

The first one is why I asked about my name and who to send it to. I was ready to send it to RK and then he listed his demands and I knew I'd likely fuck something up and get my ballot rejected or some deal. I'm glad Ghostboy is my homeroom teacher.

Wow, I'll be surprised if Seven Samauri doesn't make a good run at it. If you asked me to name the one foreign film that would have a real good shot at cracking a list done by the members of this board, that might be the one I'd pick. But what the hell do I know?

Please no.

Actually, I'm glad you brought that up, cos we should clear everything, yes?

As in, I think all LOTR should be classified as one movie. Also, Apocalypse Now Redux... should that be the same as the original, in terms of vote counting?

Any others anybody can think of?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Godfather I, II, and III are three separate movies.  LOTR I, II, and III are three separate movies.  That Star Wars shit is six separate movies.  Apocalypse Now and Redux are different versions of the SAME MOVIE.  Ditto for Cinema Paradiso and Nuovo Cinema Paradiso.
