Oh, I like this idea...  It sounds like a lot of fun.

But if we chose this system, would this really be "our" list?  I mean, we chose the films, but the end result would be more random and less community.   

Thinking about it...

I think it would become our burden to bear and celebrate both. :) And whatever the result, it's only for a year. Think of it as an eclectic snapshot.

Okay, I have re-set the poll!  I'm afraid Dave's numbering option wasn't accepted (this year), mostly because it was felt to be too much work for a ballot.

Now, let's set the traditional system up against smirnoff's lottery!  Which would you prefer for our official top 100?

I prefer to think of it as a weighted-lottery-of-mega-fun than a randomizer, but I shall not quibble. :))

I prefer to call 'noff's system the Adjusted Group Vishnevetsky.

Lottery for my pick. It is great idea.

smirnoff,

I will say that your slightly less random amendment (when a film is picked a second time it moves up) is a bit complicated for me. My proposal is that we'd put all the names in the virtual hopper and then maybe pick 500 or 1000 of them at random (if we got 40 ballots, we'd have upwards of 4000 entries). Then they'd be ranked by frequency. Positional tie-breakers within this group would be, of course, random draw.

Anyway, I'm on board.

This sounds like a slightly modified version of  Ignatiy Vishnevetsky's list-making method.
