I nominated The Music Man for the 20th HoF and it came in dead last.

It probably would have been 1st on my list if I had joined that HoF.

I must have been in a Musicals mood when I made my last top ten in my profile because they're all musical movies.

The Jazz Singer (1980) = 5.9
Barnum! (1986) = 7.5
Oklahoma! (1999) = 7.9
Pure Country (1992) = 7.1
The Pajama Game (1957) = 6.7
Damn Yankees (1958) = 7.1
Brigadoon (1954) = 6.8
West Side Story (1961) = 7.5
Singin' in the Rain (1952) = 8.3
My Fair Lady (1964) = 7.8

Average = 7.26


However if I use my top ten for the current All-Time Countdown, (which I will NOT post here),
the Average = 8.07

Are those from your Top 10 listed next to your username?
Yes. Unfortunately Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf pulls in a weak 3.6, apparently people don't care for that one, which really hurts the overall rating. I'll take the hit though because for all its flaws, and there are a lot of them, it is still a fun movie to watch and my first introduction to werewolves



2001. 8.3
Ikiru. 8.3
Tokyo Story. 8.2
Stalker. 8.2
Apocalypse Now. 8.4
Blade Runner. 8.1
My Neighbor Totoro. 8.2
Grave of the Fireflie. 8.5
Nausicaa. 8.1
Spirited Away. 8.6

Average is 8.29, very high but natural since 9 out of 10 these movies are in the IMDB top 250 (one isn't because it lacks enough votes).

"Ikiru" was the first Kurosawa movie I saw, and loved it. I remember after seeing it, how many complained about it going longer than they expected. I'm guessing they thought the moment the protagonist died, it would be soon over.. 8.3/10 is quite hard to achieve. Wouldn't have guessed it would rate higher than "Tokyo Story", either.
