Also, just noticed I didn't include a single animated film. Please pardon my faux pas and if I could, would have squeezed in "Watership Down" or "Toy Story".

Wouldn't mind if Watership Down made it JD, one of my fav animated films.

Will one of the Marvel films make the top 100? If so, which, and how high?
?GOTG, Winter Soldier, Logan, X-Men DOFP?
What will be the highest-ranked comic book film, if any?
TDK
What will be the oldest film on the countdown?
Metropolis or Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans
What will be the newest film on the countdown?
La La Land
What's the highest-ranked film from the last list that won't make the cut at all this time?
Fargo
Which film will make the biggest jump from the previous list?
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
What will be the top horror film?
The Shining

Thanks TUS & Yoda for doing this! And thanks to the entire panel of voters for sharing your movies. Let's Go!



lol imagine having all rocky movies on the list, how much is there like 6, I think 1 is plenty
What'd be funnier is if Creed 2 made the list, and none of the others even got a single vote.



To that latter point, exactly 10 people participated in both lists: rauldc14, honeykid, Yoda, sarah f, mark f, Miss Vicky, TheUsualSuspect, Iroquois, Thursday Next, Powdered Water.
As I recall, the voting for the 2010 countdown started shortly after I'd completed a personal countdown and I just submitted the top 25 of that list as my ballot. Looking at my favorites list from back then, 10 films that appeared on my 2010 ballot also appeared on my 2020 ballot.

I have all 7 Police Academy films on my list. It was just too hard to to pick my favourite...

If you like them all, I would just pick one that you think deserves to be on here. But if it was hard to pick I understand, it's just those 6 spots could be used with different movies and one of the Police academy movies could go on there.



Let's get #100 and #99 onto lift off, what's the wait for lol
I usually keep the behind-the-scenes stuff, well, behind-the-scenes, but in this case the wait is:

1) finishing up a few technical details about the presentation.
2) setting up a slightly different presentation for mobile.
3) double-checking the results.
4) parsing the results so I can snag a bunch of interesting stats.

Mostly the above, with a little extra because Monday seems like a great time to start, and it gives people a whole day for the dozens of One-Pointers, coming early tomorrow.



Random Trivia:

There is exactly one film that was first on at least one list...but still missed the countdown entirely. Just one, though. Every other film that nabbed at least one first place vote made the Top 100.

EDIT MUCH LATER: disregard for now, data recalculating happening and whatnot.



We've gone on holiday by mistake
Should've done this initially, but, some fun questions based on the above predictions (and other related stuff):

  1. Will one of the Marvel films make the top 100? If so, which, and how high?
  2. What will be the highest-ranked comic book film, if any?
  3. What will be the oldest film on the countdown?
  4. What will be the newest film on the countdown?
  5. What's the highest-ranked film from the last list that won't make the cut at all this time?
  6. Which film will make the biggest jump from the previous list?
  7. What will be the top horror film?

I'm sure I'll think of more later.
1. I'm gonna say none of them.

2. TDK though I prefer BBegins. Joker might do well due to the recency factor.

3. Seven Samurai?

4. Gonna come back to this one.

5. Braveheart, but possibly The Departed at 7.

6. The Shining

7. Also The Shining

Wish everyone loved Napoleon Dynamite as much as me. Sigh
