1. Vote fixing is frowned upon by me...freakin' FroHam
2. Almost Famous does not darken the list, and I think you will find yourself in the minority on that one, obvi
What I value the most in these lists is that it's an expression of who you are as a film lover. Let it be truly how it is (with the exception of tv miniseries/series).
But if that means voting in that manner then go for it!
