i don't like the idea of doing 80's, 90's or 00's. For the main reason, that we've done/are doing brackets dedicated to the first two, and most of us have a pretty solid grasp of the latter.
Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. Although, I imagine there are films I'd love to discover from just about any year, so I'll be good with whatever.

I actually had that option turned off on purpose, but, either way, I think we're ready to move on to the next set of polls.

Here's what we've learned so far:

People prefer the idea of polling by years (17 votes) to the idea of random selection (7 votes).

People prefer the idea of focusing on a post-1970s/1980s year (~18 votes) to an earlier year (~5 votes).

Something from the last ten years seems likely, but not definitively so.

New polls coming soon.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

hate to say all my votes were relatively random, but I think just about any year would be fun.

Generally voted for earlier years in each poll (Im guessing Ive seen the least in those years)

Polls voted in, I must admit I just mostly randomly picked years, although I did pick 1980 because it was the year Flash Gordon came out  ;D

I'm probably going to close the decade polls when they get to about 25 votes apiece (they're at ~19 now), so if you want to tinker with your votes, now's maybe the time to do so.

20% of all votes cast to date are for 1999-2001.

The final poll is up. I included all the years which got at least 8 votes in the decade polls.
