Thank you for your participation.

TV Movies are allowed.

Mini-series will be judged on a case by case basis.  If you are likely to include anything listed on imdb as "TV mini-series" or "TV Series", please post on here and the community can decide if it will be included.

Votes for franchises, such as "Harry Potter series", "Godfather saga", "Lord of the Rings trilogy", etc will be counted as a vote for the 1st movie in the franchise, unless they are explicitly stated.  I.E. "The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King".

First ballots have started coming in, which is good to see.

Myself, MartinTeller and sdb_1970 so far.  From 3 ballots, we already have 249 movies nominated and only 3 movies appeared on all 3 ballots (Casablanca, Raiders of the Lost Ark & Mulholland Dr).

I'm expanding the spreadsheet this time, so hopefully you guys will like all the extras.

Mini-series will be judged on a case by case basis.  If you are likely to include anything listed on imdb as "TV mini-series" or "TV Series", please post on here and the community can decide if it will be included.

What about Die zweite Heimat (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105906/) (Heimat II, Edgar Reitz)? It had several cinema screenings.

Also, is there a preferred format and choice of title/AKA for the submitted list? My posted format will most likely be:
  99) Im Lauf der Zeit (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073152/)  (AKA Kings of the Road, Wim Wenders, 1976)  Germany

I hope Jean-Xavier de Lestrade's THE STAIRCASE (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388644/) is okay with everybody.
Title: Re: 5th Annual Filmspotters Top 100 - Comments thread
Post by: Wilson on September 03, 2012, 12:15:24 PM
Any format for titles is fine, if there's any confusion I'll email for clarification. 

I have no issues with the staircase, heimat II though looks like it shouldn't be eligible. 13 episodes and, going by the comments, it's over 20 hours long.

Feel free to include it though, and if it gets close to the big list, the discussion can delve deeper

I finally saw The Staircase this year. It left me speechless. Terrific though. I would get behind it being on a top 100.

Thanks for all the votes everyone.  If you haven't submitted a list, there's still time.

I'll probably count through Friday  night, and begin laying it out then.

I'm aiming for countdown Saturday/Sunday this weekend, but it might end up getting pushed back.  Once I've completed the tabulation, I'll have a better idea of exact dates and times.

Thanks for the stats! I think I am most excited to find out what the 5 re-entries are (keeping my fingers crossed for Cabaret and Seventh Seal!).

I have been a very silent lurker lately so I haven't contributed a lot to a stronger female presence on the boards myself. Still, I can't help but wish there were a few more women on this list of names.

Can't wait to see the final list, though!

Providing nominations for the Filmspots was a consideration, but with us only having done a handful of years so far I decided against it.
It will at least let us see how terrible the academy is.  There's a good number of movies in the top 100 with 0 nominations, and others with 0 wins.

Also, I have to give credit to pix for the format.  He helped provide a base for last years format, which I really liked and decided to elaborate a little further on this year (and probably next year too).

Another note -
I will be releasing 2 spreadsheets this year.

Spreadsheet 1 will be released on the day of the countdown, detailing all votes received, similar to previous years.  Spreadsheet 2 will be released a little while afterwards, as it will take me a few days to bring it all together.  It'll contain a lot more information, and hopefully be useful/interesting to some.

One more stat on my own list, compiled just out of my own curiosity:

39/100 are available (or will soon be available) on Blu-Ray


There's also roughly a dozen that have never been available on DVD in this country, or only available in illegitimate, extremely shoddy editions.

I don't hate that because I want to give myself a little bit of time after watching it to see if it is really Top 100 worthy or I am just over-enthusiastic post-climax.  A movie favorite (of which I have more than 650) could easily get on my Top 100 until I get a little balance over time.

While looking at the spreadsheet, I noticed one minor glitch: Hal Hartley's Surviving Desire received 2 votes, but each was counted as a different film.

More useless stats:
16 out 37 films submitted as #1 didn't make the Top 100.
931 out of 1624 films received only one vote, meaning the average ballot contained 22 films nobody else voted for.
55 out of those 931 films with single votes were in the Top 10 of the respective ballots.

I think the Bondo Collection stands as testament that the proper proportion is 50% post-2000, 75% post-1990. The FS100 falls short of this proportion, being too geriatric.

While we are all film buffs here, and we are all open to watching movies from all decades, when we talk about the top 100, we are doing a combination of favorites lists. 

Part of what is a favorite is what communicates to us, personally.  Potentially, any decade's movies could communicate to us, strike us, but the likelihood is higher that a movie that is closer to our cultural heart will do so.  In other words, most of us are people of this era.  The cultural assumptions and communications of previous eras may strike us, but more movies of this era should communicate to us. 

The other fact is that there are simply more movies available from more recent decades than earlier.

Frankly, the FS100 covers quite a broad spectrum.  Broader than any modern list should be without some leaning the other way.

I guess I was surprised since I thought that my list was so boring and predictable and common to film lists. I thought for sure that things like The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeosie or Sherlock Jr. would have gotten several votes if not squeezed onto the list itself. I'm actually more surprised that La Dolce Vita only received one other vote! I can't say that I came anywhere close to voting for the films that you listed though.

Quoted again for truthfulness

Overall I think it's a good list, the diversity of it impresses me. Though just one more of you needed to put Jurassic Park on your list for it to crack the Top 100  >:(

Also a good reminder of some films I need to get around to. Caught Double Indemnity on sale out of the corner of my eye when out shopping today. And Wings of Desire is playing in a local theatre next week.

The beauty of There Will Be Blood, of course, is the timeless quality that only comes by showcasing a deep understanding of the human condition, existence, and human nature, so realistically it being made in 2007 becomes a bit less relevant when recognizing its accomplishments. I suppose one would benefit from having the cultural point of reference of an American, though only up to a point I think. It is designed in such a way (as much as I don't like admitting it, I suppose like the works of Shakespeare) to communicate with anyone regardless of time.

I'm pretty sure a bunch of people vote for The Shining.

Oh shoot, I must have deleted the wrong one off my spreadsheet.  I think it was either Stop Making Sense or Time of the Gypsies.  Too lazy to look it up again.

Random data explorations, I was going through creating a list of all the films receiving votes that I haven't seen. Here's the breakdown by how many points the film got. For my purposes, 50 is essentially the top 100/150, 30 is the top 250, and 15 is the top 500, though I broke it down by the point scheme after that so it would be inclusive of each tier of single vote getters. I do very well with multi-vote getters at least.

I was curious to find that the only #1 voted film that I haven't seen is Blissfully Yours. It will probably remain unseen given Joe's track record.

Points   Percent Watched
50   98%
30   92%
17   83%
15   80%

Here's the top 25 directors by average points per film submitted.

For example, Coppola had four different films appear on peoples' lists. Irvin Kershner had one.

You could think of it as a "who's hits were the biggest" ranking maybe.

2   Jean-Pierre Jeunet
3   Irvin Kershner
4   Michael Curtiz
5   Michel Gondry
6   Paul Thomas Anderson

Are you telling me that Akira Kurosawa finished out of the 25 and below Quentin Tarantino, Harold Ramis and Andrew Stanton? I think I'm going to vomit.

A 3 film minimum per director might be an interesting list.

Two pieces on Vertigo:

1) an essay by the great Chris Marker (RIP): A free replay (notes on Vertigo) (http://www.chrismarker.org/a-free-replay-notes-on-vertigo/).

2) a 3m20s sequence on Vertigo from Chris Marker's travelogue and film essay Sans Soleil: Insane Memory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZpcydFv0cA).

Oh crud, I've been away this summer and didn't think to re-submit my list from last year (it wouldn't have changed much - A Separation, The Tree of Life and Drive might have found their way onto it, along with new discoveries - The Magnificent Ambersons and Searching for Bobby Fischer. But Fargo woulda still been my #1, which may account a little for its drop from 12 to 20. :(

Another great list, though. A lot to catch up with.
