Discuss the Vote Here Top 200 Movies We Agree Don’t Suck
Cheers to the greatest message board on the internet. Over the years we have cultivated a small, active and fairly wide spread community talking about film and television. We’ve had some fun discussions, some interesting discussions, some heated discussions and a lot of fun.
5 Years ago, we embarked on a small experiment to catalog what we thought were “Movies We Agree Don’t Suck.”
We decided it wasn’t a “Best Movies Ever List,” and it wasn’t an “Our Favorite Movies List.” It sat somewhere between that discussion; it was a list that evoked the best of what film had to offer AND the ability of film to entertain. “We have a lot of different tastes and a decent amount of posters, that alone should level out inconsistencies. It'll be a mixture of the overly critical and some of your average ‘I just want to be entertained’ moviegoers,” as the thread once said. And I think that has stood with all of our lists.
So here we are. 5 years later, with some new posters, more than a few new films, and probably some changes in our personal tastes. But does the idea still stand? Can we make a list that simply attempts to find the best of film, films that sufficiently connect with culture AND have consistent quality? This time, we’ll cast larger ballots, 40, and hopefully compile a list that is the double the size of the last one, at 200.
Without delay, let's get down to the rules, as normal: Ballots will be posted in this thread as a response. Please label your films 1-40, with 1 being the highest, 2 next and so forth (doesn't matter how you list them, forwards or backwards, but make sure 1 is your top film). I will let the thread sink in for two weeks, then I will lock in answers with an announcement (as in, "NO FURTHER CHANGES FROM NOW ON) I will bump this thread daily until the first list is posted, I'm sure it will take a couple of days to start getting lists in.
PLEASE LIST ALL DATES of the films you include **In terms of trilogies and sequels, only 4 film sets CAN be listed as one entry, that list is: KILL BILL, Trois Couleurs, Godfather 1 and 2, and LORD OF THE RINGS. All other sets are separate films.** **USE THIS THREAD FOR VOTING ONLY** I am also taking the list of volunteers for write-ups. You know the drill. If you love film and want to unleash your Shakespearean eloquence upon the masses, sign up. Writers:
