Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Well, I don't know if you saw any of them, but there were many, many exchanges in the balloting thread (and some in this one) about the possible distinctions between "best" and "favorite," and how to...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Perhaps "best" means something different to you than to others, by which I mean not just that tastes differ, but that people also measure these things along different axes.

Fun Fact
As alluded to earlier, Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of two remaining films to not be first on anyone's ballot. The other appears tomorrow. Raiders, in fact, isn't second on anyone's...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Most people wait until the end, but as you can see sometimes people reveal some choices (directly or indirectly) once they're totally convinced something isn't showing up, since if they're right...

I like that explanation for Goodfellas, partially because it simultaneously explains why someone would love it and why it might feel "off" to them, since to some degree that's the point. I imagine...

Re: Suggestions for future countdowns

What do people think about doing a poll to decide which type of list, first, and then a poll to decide the specific list? That might help more people get what they want to some degree, since...

For sure, and I'm not flabbergasted by the love or anything. I'm just working backwards from the fact that I don't adore it, and just trying to figure out why. I could say "I just don't" (and a lot...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Yeah, that's another thing, it's hard enough to parse preferences, let alone super subtle ones like "why do people here think this is REALLY great instead of just great?"

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Yeah, I've kind of been at a loss to explain why I don't love Goodfellas more. My best explanation is that it suffers from a dominated strategy: it's a very good mob film, but that means I'll always...

Part of my thinking is that people will inevitably fight over qualifications when they're not well-defined, so it might be a lot to fight over the choice and its implementation. Which is why I like...

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

Re: The Movie Forums Top 100 of All-Time Refresh: Countdown

You can technically ask "what's the big deal?" about any film, for sure, but I think it's reasonable with Goodfellas because the love for it here seems to consistently outstrip its love in other...

Also, I will preemptively volunteer myself as a human sacrifice to make genre qualification choices if the Curator does not want to deal with the headache. I'll be the bad guy. ;) Only if they don't...

Re: Suggestions for future countdowns

Personally I like the idea of only doing non-decades if there's a pretty clear consensus. If you have seven options and one of them wins by a single vote, and with like 35% of the vote because the...
