Tale of the Fox sounds like it should make our Top 100 animated films list next year.

Have so many people seen All Quiet because they had to read the book in school?

That's where I first saw it, at least.

I read the book in school, but I didn't watch the film until a few years later as part of my IMDb marathon.

What are all these yearly polls for? They're intimidating. Probably because I've only seen on average like 4 of the films from each year.
Are you going to combine all the results (top 5 or something) in another topic?

No real purpose, save to give people some viewing ideas.

None of the four films I've seen from this year qualify to be listed. Top shame is Earth, most mainstream I haven't seen is The Golden Age.

A reminder that we disagree on The Blue Angel.

I don't think you'll like it. Horrible acting and overblown melodrama. Hughes should have just remained a casting couch type of director.
