Everybody, 1999 is the better year by a country mile.

I'd prefer to go older as well. 1930s ideally... von Sternberg, Renoir, Murnau, Borzage, Ford, Lubitsch, Cocteau, Ozu, Vigo, Clair, Wellman, Lang...

Considering we only had about 20 voters this time around, I thought we might entice more people with a more recent year, then try to keep them playing for Round III: The 30s.

Agreed.  I think it's a good idea to alternate older (say, pre-1980) with newer.

I'm all for martin's random idea. For post sound years, I don't think my body will accept my binge watching so many silents.

1957 was awesome, others will be awesome too. Whatever's cool with me.

AmeriKKKa's best movie year or Australia's best movie year.  One of those two.
