Someday, I hope someone redoes (english?) these polls and make sure they last forever.

Out of 58 films. Top shame is Dead Ringers. Most mainstream I haven't seen is Child's Play, though Dangerous Liaisons is second and much more likely for me to watch. Probably 1SO's next turn on Top 100 Club.

1.   My Neighbor Totoro
2.   Die Hard
3.   Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story
4.   Grave of the Fireflies
5.   Coming To America
6.   Talking To Strangers
7.   High Hopes
8.   Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
9.   Beetlejuice
10.   Drowning By Numbers
11.   They Live
12.   Big
13.   A Fish Called Wanda
14.   Akira
15.   Rain Man
16.   The Serpent and the Rainbow
17.   Killer Klowns from Outer Space
18.   Running On Empty

The two in Bold will have interesting stuff for you to pick at. The other one is a mildly entertaining Shocktober pick at best.

These polls (from 1950s onwards) were designed for a particular project that had a timeline. I started going through and unlocking them and adding options and changing them to "pick your top five" ... but I haven't gotten very far yet.

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

Okay. Whenever you unlock them, will you post on them to say so, as to make them appear in the unread posts page ?
