Will this also be a chat announcement like we usually do?

Yes, there will be a chat announcement. 

It looks like the final presentation won't be ready on Monday, so we will be having it on Thursday at 5pm PST.

Again, the initial countdown will be Sunday at 2pm PST.  See you all then!

Didn't realize it was today that this was happening. Was busy rewatching the Three Colors Trilogy. (Woo, Blue made the list!)

Glad to see The New World edging out Tree of Life. I think in the long run, The New World will stand as the better film. Both are wonderful, though.

I call shenanigans on BttF over Die Hard on the list.

Didn't realize that many people loved Terminator.

Pleasantly shocked by how high A Serious Man is. Didn't realize we had that many lovers of the film around here.

I have to say, the ordering of this list is quite interesting and not what I would expect given the history of previous lists. Looks like a lot of the top 30 took quite a dive. I wonder if it's the influx of new members we've gotten into the past couple of years.

Makes me really curious about what is in the top 30. Hopefully, I'll remember to come to that countdown.

I, too, am really intrigued by this list. I figured we had gotten artsier as a whole, but this list seems to suggest the opposite. Not that that's a bad thing, although the 3 or 4 at the bottom of 30 are the dorm roomiest dorm room movies (2 of which have made my list in this or previous years).

Die Hard appeared on 12 ballots to BttF's 8, however, the 8 who put BttF were wronger and thus it placed higher.

Great list. That Amadeus screenshot cracked me up. Such a cringe-inducing moment! :))

Yes! Same. Should be able to make it Thursday.

Just what I was thinking. Interesting.
