TGTBTU with the most votes... it's certainly not the most consensually good movie out there, but I suppose it might be on this particular forum ? Even then I kinda doubt it, I don't imagine it'd be too hard to find someone who dislikes it.

I clearly didn't vote on some of these.  :P

I've come around more on NCFOM. Like it more than TWBB now.

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

Maths! This kind of stuff is why pixote is the single reason the distribution of coolness in the forum has a standard deviation of 30.


I like the 25% top votes method better than the above average one but it leads to less consensuality. I wonder if the total number of movies each voter saw and therefore voted for skews the results one way or another?

TGtBatU is a dislike for me, but I guess I can't deny that it's "good".

I'm in the same place but with A Woman Under The Influence.

I'd vote no on The Red Shoes, though.

I don't dislike Mulholland Dr. but I wouldn't call it "good" either (again it's in the "fine" category for me).
