John Connor and the Holy Grail UPDATE: Writer emails going out over the next two days. All votes tallied and checked. So all we have to do is get the writers on it (a week or so) and the list will be released early next week, or post christmas? UPDATE: A change has been issued to give us some more movies, and therefore extend the voting period as well. You will now extend your Top 10 list into a Top 20. This gives you a chance to put in those movies that were missed and gives us a better chance at a Top 50 with all movies receiving at least 2 or 3 votes. Top 50 Science Fiction and Top 50 Comedy Movies OMG "It's Here!!! I didn't think Freaux's Lazy arse would ever do it. You are joking. And he came up with a lame-o title to boot!"
Well, my answer to that last question is, I asked for other suggestions so in order to not wait any longer, a lame title it is.
Contrary to popular belief, the whole reason I didn't do it was because I never had more than 4 days between trips for the past 3 months. Not enough to spend time checking, tallying, checking, double checking, etc.
But if you notice I have been posting more recently, and I just returned from a 6 city tour, and now that I am sitting down grading what seems to be an endless amount of college sophomore composition papers, I figure it's time to do it as I should catch up with work right around time to tally up scores in 6 days.
So, yes, it is happening. For real. Honest. No this isn't a mirage. Plus I am super excited for the next two lists: Top Directors (Spring) and Fall of 2010 will be the big Top 100 of the Decade, which will be a blast (should I start pressing for The Prestige now?).
So here are the rules, a little different from last time:
Two sets of top 50 films, Science Fiction and Comedy, the "fun genres."
So rank your Top 20 of each 1-20. Number 1 being your highest ranked, and 20 being your lowest. Please be clear about your lists.
Although we will not put limits on what is or isn't a genre fulfilling film--the debate over Star Wars as sci-fi--give it some thought at least. Comedies are easy, science fiction is a tough genre though.
So,get to watching, remembering, voting, reliving those wonderful moments of joy or wonderment.
"Listen, Strange women, lying in ponds, distributing swords, is no basis for a system of government." Have fun.
Sorry for the wait folks. I really do enjoy the board, and I hope people enjoy the voting/ranking/listing process. I know I do, it's just been busy for me.
P.S. I am taking requests for writers of small reviews/analysis of the top films. Top 5 of each group if I have enough. Closing votes in: 2 days
