Best Spoiler Thread: Arrival

I will think more on this before posting a proper Top 5.

About 1005 options to choose from!

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

For some reason, I thought the question was limited to threads created in 2016 (which seems to be about 1005). But I guess really it's any any thread with activity during the year, which is a much bigger number.

It felt like less, but I was not thinking in terms of activity during the entire year. I guess all those polls and Top 5s do pile up...

Being the Marathon Man, that's always my favorite sandbox to play in.

I greatly appreciate Sandy keeping Once Upon a March in the West alive, and oldkid for doing the same with Merry Music of May. I'm also thankful that Bondo continues DOCember which would be a growing blindspot if not for this monthly push. (Required mention of Shocktober.)

We launched an initial LGBT Group Marathon to mixed results. That might've been some poor choices on my part - Bruno, what was I thinking? - but I also finally saw Stranger By the Lake, Weekend and Paris is Burning.

My favorite thread here that doesn't have me looking at Disney/Pixar films One Chapter At A Time is Corndog's massive Westerns Marathon. 18 films down, 314 to go. I'm enjoying that even more than my own Horror Marathon with its 437 titles (156 watched) because I get to be the sidekick to Corndog.

DarkeningHumour has the Filmspotter Forum Top 100 (2014) Checklist, which is ongoing. Lists like these are always good for getting to Essentials. A more interesting variation on this (because it's a Group Marathon) is A Decade of Filmspots.

Sam the Cinema Snob also launched his Animation Education and Sam Reviews His Top 100, which continues at Sam's leisurely pace, much like pixote and Ciné Bambini: Adolescence on Film

And Everything Changed when the Kimes Family Attacked...

Oh Lord, I had completely forgotten about that one. I have to check if...yep, I have watched several since my last update.

I hope to get back to animation soon. Also have four films lined up for my top 100 rewatch, I just got busy with the 2015/2016 film catchup I've been doing.
