Title: 6th Annual Filmspotters Top 100 - Comments & Discussion Thread
Post by: Wilson on July 26, 2013, 03:20:33 AM
Alright everybody,

It's almost that time of the year again.  The voting won't start for another week or two (I am awaiting delivery of a new PC, so that will have to arrive first); but I thought I would open this thread and we can start discussion.

I am mostly interested in the format of the voting,  I shall make a poll out of this.  I am curious as to whether people feel we should look into a change, or continue with the same as it always has been.

I would be particularly interested if anybody has any ideas on how to incorporporate the wonderful work that Pixote has done with The Ratings Project.   Obviously, this is only the infancy of an idea and totally open to suggestion or dismissal.

This would also mark the 5th year with the current voting structure, so perhaps some sort of historical data can also be integrated?

By all means though, if the majority are happy with things as they are, then that's what we'll do.

Please vote and let me know what you're thoughts are, and what you would or wouldn't like to see integrated this year.

The problem with the ratings project method being applied here is it allows for negative votes. Don't want to see The Godfather at the top again? Give it a 1.

The Best advantage with Pixote's work is to give us a Watchlist of films we should all prioritize before submitting a list. Certainly anyone who plans to submit but hasn't watched The General should correct that.

I would prefer to keep the voting the way it is too.

As far as coordination with The Ratings Project, I agree with 1SO...it is pretty cool how it serves to streamline our FYC process quite a bit. Personally I'm trying to keep up with the ever changing communal watchlist.

Maybe we can have a pantheon. Films that can't be included in the top 100. Like films that have been in the top 10 for the last few years should be removed from competition and put into the pantheon. Just an idea.
There are always new a different films showing up on the list each year. But there is a worry that it might stagnate a bit.

I kind of like that. Anything that has been on the list (in the top 20? top 10? all of it?) for all six years gets the boot for a year.

I'm against any changes.  If films drop out, let it be because of evolving opinion, viewpoint, etc.  For some of us, the list itself may not be as exciting as years past since there are a bunch of titles that will make the 100 every year but following pixote's The Ratings Project and downloading the spreadsheet that Wilson posts then discoveries are out there for all of us.  As a result, freshness is a part of the overall experience.

I don't really like the idea of excluding films. If the concern is that the same films pop up then let new films in by making the list longer, (i.e make into a top 200 and/or allow people to submit longer lists) not by excluding those that deserve to be there.

Post by: smirnoff on July 26, 2013, 06:34:35 PM
Isn't it more of an elevation than an exclusion though? I should think a film being admitted to this yet undefined pantheon would be the highest honour it could hope to achieve. An exclusive club where only the very best are welcomed. For films on the brink of entry (qualifications yet to be determined) it could add to the stakes.

At some point it does seem reasonable to recognize a film for its outstanding longevity (or something).



The problem with the ratings project method being applied here is it allows for negative votes. Don't want to see The Godfather at the top again? Give it a 1.

It allows for negative votes but the sort of obstructionist tactics you're talking about doesn't seem very likely in this place.

Frankly I'm kinda tired of the top 100 vis a vis the ratings project. I mean, this had Tree of Life in it before its DVD release. But I'm not sure what function it serves if it embraces the ratings project.

This is very coincidental timing for me because I was board at work yesterday and redid my top 100 before even seeing this.  8)

I don't see anything wrong with the way that voting has been done previously. I get that it is boring to see the saw movies over and over again, but there is a reason why those films are mentioned over and over again. I suppose the problem is that with a top 100 list you are going to pick the "greatest" films and many people have similar ideas of what is "great." I'm going to have Citizen Kane, Casablanca, and the Godfather on my lists and so will most others. However, it is disingenuous to have a top 100 list without including those films if you love them.

Maybe the solution is to have a seperate "underloved" list. You would ban anything that appeared on the joint top 100 list and maybe any film that came close. This would shine a spotlight on films that are great, but never makes these lists. Maybe then films like Floating Weeds, Marty, and the Big Heat would get the love that they deserve. Heck, I'm salivating at the idea of finally voting for films like Attack the Gas Station! or Dark City which always missed the cut for me. Finally you would be free of the burden of voting for films that you "have" to and you could start to get creative. It would probably less cohesive than the top 100 list, but it would certainly be interesting.

I'm for keeping the same format but it would be interesting to do some kind of extended analysis after the poll. Cumulative votes over 6 years, incorporate the 2013 list with the ratings project, brackets or historical data in some meta-list, nomalize for number of participants between years, ect. Pix, are there ratings people who don't participate in the top 100?

Top 100 ballots -- personal or collective -- are always inherently conservative, favouring as they do nostalgia, longevity, the strength of a rewatch, the films you always return to (http://www.idfilm.net/2011/04/films-i-always-go-back-to.html).

As such, I'd be against changes. I'm happy that such lists tend to repeat themselves -- but that makes the surprises all the more pleasurable.

On another note, I've made a Top 100, ready to submit, alphabetising within each points tier to allow for fluidity etc. But then it just occurred to me that it might be better simply to list the 48 features I rate 10/10 (each is "one of the best ever"), as an alphabetised hall-of-fame or whatever. I have many 9s that I've only seen once (I've never given a 10 upon a first viewing), and some were obviously more recent than others. So I guess I'd feel uncomfortable including some and not others.

Yeah, Top 48 from me on its way.

At a (now defunct) forum I used to read, I found that there was a common trend of people completely reworking their 'favorite film lists' with little if any commonalities from before. This was often most common among people watching a lot of films, and most if not all of those were in distinctly different modes to what they previously favored. This happened for those getting into the recent realists around the globe, or into non-narrative avant-garde, or into dense artifice/atmosphere. For those that look for 'better examples of the same sort of films', or those who don't completely immerse themselves in a lot of new stuff, I think the 'conservative' thing is pretty common. Not watching that many films these days, and even fewer of the ones I'm really excited about (but have to put in more effort to dig up), my idea of my favorites stays rather static, but mostly due to a lack of anything to shake things up but ever more distant memories. The point, though, I think, is that there can be dramatic shifts, it just takes a new burning passion or interest of some sort to fuel that sort of change in perspective.

Yes, you're right. I think maybe I favour longevity and the strengths of a rewatch too much -- too much considering how many repeat viewings I actually fit in these days (around sixteen this year, of over 500 films). I think it's to allow for the idea of (personal) "prestige". If something's unmeasurable because it changes so much, then it can't be taken seriously...?

Or, on the contrary, if something's readily measureable because it hasn't changed much... I feel like I've missed out on a lot of growth, or the film doesn't lend itself to any more, neither of which is a good sign. Change is the best one can hope for, I think.

The most recent George Sanders Show Podcast put a thought in my head. It's called “The Top 10 Films of All Time”, but their lists came with a number of guidelines.

Nothing from their Top 10 of last year
No more than 1 film per director
Each film should represent different decades or different periods of cinema history
Nothing from the Sight & Sound Top 50

I remember last year The Vishnevetsky Method (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=11328.0) was a popular way to compose a submission list. I'm very rank and file with my list, so this different approach is like The Five Obstructions to me, kind of fun but not a true list. (The opposing viewpoint, discussed on the podcast is how can you possibly compare one film's greatness against another's?)

So I'm curious what the general grouping is here. How many of you use a rigidly formatted list? How many see their list as an approximate Top 100 likely to change on any given day? How many prefer to just throw 100 or more films into the air and see how they land? What are your restrictions, if any?

Post by: FLYmeatwad on September 09, 2013, 05:24:15 PM
The closer to the top of my list we get the less likely it is to change, the middle and bottom are in constant states of flux. Occasionally a film will ascend at a rapid pace and enter that Top 10 space though. I reckon that's what happened with Jeanne Dielman, but I might be wrong. Certainly that is how TWBB unseated DS:OHILTSWALTB. Though that may change now. I don't know. I should watch Strangelove again.

Mine was kinda thrown together, in an organized-ish way. I'd say each movie is in the mostly right order according to the movie that's above and below it, but not entirely beyond that. I kind of threw movies at a wall and then dragged them up and down to where I felt appropriate based on maybe divine intervention or manifest destiny. The top 20 or so are the 20 that meant the most to me that year.

Post by: MP on September 09, 2013, 07:31:14 PM
Mine's just a list of personal favourites - the films that I've seen that are most likely to give me the most pleasure if I were to watch any of them again... or the films I think about most often, or something.

I alphabetised each tier to allow for fluidity. I and nobody else can argue that North by Northwest is a better film than Citizen Kane, but I know which one I "prefer". Today, at least.

As fun as the creation of a Top 100 can be, it might be better just to list a personal "hall of fame" - every film to which you award top marks or something.

I like the idea of placing limitations on the list as a separate experiment from ones actual Top 100 just to see how it might change. Though I think a true Top 100 shouldn't have any restrictions.

I think my top 10ish is fairly rigid with some room for movement, though I could be wrong with a year under my belt here stuff could change once I start to really think over it. Though moving down the list things become less clear, it's sort of hard to quantify why #63 is that much "better" than #87

I don't like placing any restrictions on my top 100, either. Let's say I watched a movie recently that I loved. Why shouldn't it go in the top ten? Should I let it wallow in the lower numbers until I've settled on it? Should I keep it out because I have another movie by the same director in the top ten? Or because I've already got a movie from the 90's about killer robots at the three spot? WHAT IF I REALLY LIKE KILLER ROBOTS?!?!?

top 100s make no sense to me, I guess I have one film that for me is the greatest film ever - Kubrick's 2001 - then I have a group of directors that I love - I mean I love a lot of the films they have made - so in a way all the directors in this group - to name a few: Buñuel, von Sternberg, Resnais, Murnau, Feuillade, Fellini, Antonioni, Kusturica and many others including a lot of other Kubrick work of course - who share second place each one of them with at least 3 titles - then I have films - Amelie, just to name one - that I adore though I don't care much about the rest of the titles directed by their directors.
A list like that amounts to maybe 1500 films and to me it would make no sense trying to rank them, especially when I consider that it's the result of circa 40 years of movie watching, I mean sometimes I am not sure how to rank a film I watched last night, how can I trust the rating/memory of a film I watched in 1978?
So when I decided to compile a top 100, first I chose the directors - Les Cahiers du Cinema style - the I picked up one single title for each one of them, a lot of directors remained out of it, but the scope of the list was to give an idea of my cinematic taste, imo that's the only feasible scope of a top 100.
I can't even rank viennoiserie - and there are not even 15 types of it - how can you rank thousands of film?

One film at a time...

Over the years of doing my top 100, I have a pretty solid first tier list (1-9) and a second tier that is open to some newcomers, and is internally flexible.  For the rest of my list, I have about 200 films that can go any which way, pretty much.  There are some that I feel must go in my top 100... but to be honest, I feel that way about all 200.  Perhaps this year I can do a  Vishnevetsky (apart from the top two tiers)?  Probably not, but perhaps some form of it.

Here's what. This is clearly lagging behind the normal schedule and that is understandable and excusable, as everybody has things that pop up from time to time, or gets tired of a task after 6 years. So we need to pull it together ourselves. Is there anybody in the general community that would take up the task? Perhaps even an element of it, since it has grown throughout the years to include quotes from the community, historical ranking data, plus the new data from pixote's ranking project. Is anybody particularly interested in the compilation of data, or the presentational aspect? This is a communal list, let's make it communally made.

I'd volunteer for the data collection part, but I kind of sucked at that with the book things. Bueller? Bueller?

I can run pretty fast and am a decent bass guitar player... neither of which helps much, just thought everyone should know.

Has anyone contacted Wilson, he has been the one in charge of this for the past 6 years, so we should check first before proceeding.

I'm kind of unmotivated (though I did just update my top-100) partly on account of the Ratings Project. With the current horror thing going, and eventually maybe focuses on docs and animation, all our other list building is slowly being rendered unnecessary.
