I never understood the math of a compilation list. Does it benefit to put a minimum-maximum on the number of submissions? No less than 25, no more than 150?


I think you may get more responses and better choices if you don't force people to come up with 100 recommendations. No reason to have people padding out such a list in order to participate, or deciding not to bother. A max limit makes some sense, too.

I wasn't here when the last one was done so I'd love it if there were another.

Last time we didn't insist that people post a full top 100.  The full discussion of how we approached it is here.

I would definitely participate in a forum top 100, and I'd gladly help to organize it too if needed.

I, for one, enjoy the meaningless process of ranking stuff, but doing it this way works out too. It works as a catalog, or an ideal library (how would you say that for discs in English ?) which you can go through to find something to watch - figuratively at least.

Had a nice time just looking at the screenshots, a lot of nice choices there. :)

Also it reminds me I'm supposed to watch Thief to catch up on the Next Picture Show.

Library is the right word there, I think.

Thanks! Hunting down screenshots was the most laborious part... a lot of them I already had shots, but I had to do a lot of searching for the others. There are a few I'm not entirely happy with but I'd already spent way too much time on it.

I love searching for screenshots. It's just nice to make a page of lovely images for a list. I could probably do it all day, and actually have for most versions of my top 100.

I prefer to capture them myself, but that's super time-consuming, plus I don't have a way to do it with Blu-Rays.

Unless I'm mistaken, Scenes From a Marriage was once #1, then #2, and now it's #181! :)

Has any other film rocketed up or down that much over years?
