Here is the number of films from the group top-100 that were on each respective voter's ballot:
...
AVERAGE 25.8

goodguy   5

That's 2 less than last time, I think.

And here is the complete ranking of films receiving votes.

Thanks!

A little surprised because as I read through the group top 100 the other night, I kept thinking, "that made the top 100?" ... So that I appreciate a lot of films that a lot of other people appreciate means:
(a) my tastes lack uniqueness or personality (glass half-empty); or
(b) I'm especially attuned to the pulse of the FS zeitgeist (glass half-full)?

Creating a match matrix from the submitted ballots could be fun.

I'll ponder the best way to make that happen, though truly the Ratings Project is the ideal database for such things.

Well, since you already pulled the FS T100 matches, I assume you preserved the data origins while tabulating the ballots. Should be easy enough to process with a few lines of code. I'll take a look at it if you want (and if there's a general interest beyond smirnoff and me).

goodguy, you make it sound as easy as throwing together a pot of soup! Just add in some lines of code to the data origins and voilà!

I'm not worthy!

I would love to see the results of this concoction.
