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

Tools    





I'm just gonna "spoil" something and confirm that not a single person listed Napoleon Dynamite, in any spot. Not even a one-pointer, sorry people.



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.
This gives me hope. But also makes me worry that with my luck, I'll be the one person whose favorite didn't make it.



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.
4) parsing the results so I can snag a bunch of ballots and make sure it says Star Wars on all of them making it #1, fixed it for yea hehe

No problem, take yea time, I'm sure this countdown stuff is alot of work.



I have 3 from the previous list that I think still have a big chance to make this iteration.
There 5 to 7 titles that are frequent all-time lister in someplace that maybe will catch m surprises, my bet as a contender.
the rest is, happy pointers. doesn't really matter.

yeah, that would be my one.

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.

-I think Infinity War will make it, but probably barely.
-The Dark Knight, which will place somewhere around 40.
- I think a few prior films get robbed and Casablanca is the oldest film
- Parasite makes it somehow around 85
-Apocalypse Now misses
- Spirited Away jumps to 55ish
-Psycho as top horror around 16

Of course, these are all wrong.

I got two movies in mind on which one didn't make it. I won't say the movies because I don't want anyone to lose hope lol even though the two movies aren't on my 25 list



Actually, scratch that, had a little data parsing error.

Maybe I'll just wait until everything is done processing formally before posting trivia...

I do like how it made like four people go "yeah that's probably mine" though.



I'll take a guess, what do I win if I'm 100% right

1 Will one of the Marvel films make the top 100? If so, which, and how high?
Infinity War towards the bottom third of the list

2 What will be the highest-ranked comic book film, if any?
The Dark Knight

3 What will be the oldest film on the countdown?
Metropolis

4 What will be the newest film on the countdown?
Parasite

5 What's the highest-ranked film from the last list that won't make the cut at all this time?
American History X

6 Which film will make the biggest jump from the previous list?
Schindler's List

7 What will be the top horror film?
Alien



Somehow 12 of my picks are on that previous top 100 list. I don't see 12 making it this time

Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
at least there's enough folks to have a support group: The Lost "Ones" lol

and I have 7 from the previous one.
I didn't look over the first Top 100 previously but I have a feeling (hoping) there'll be a lot more older films this time around.

I don't think I voted for a 1 pointer but I guess there's a chance. I think it's made a list before though.
