Filmspotters Top 100 Movies - The Countdown! (2012 edition)
« on: September 21, 2012, 04:06:41 PM »
It's that time again, the special presentation of the Filmspotters Top 100 Movies.

Before we get started, I just want to thank everybody who has helped this be such a success over the last 5 years.  Without each one of you, this would not be possible, and I feel very proud to be able to present it every year.  So again, thank you for taking part.

---

This year we received 43 ballots, nominating 1625 different movies for the big 100.  As always, a full spreadsheet will be provided detailing each vote once the countdown is completed.  This year will also include a 2nd spreadsheet, however this will be delayed a week or so.

So sit back, relax and feel free to join the chat

Number 100 will be on the way very soon.
