My next top 100 will be populated with a bunch of YouTube videos I enjoyed. ;-)

Once, in the Filmspots, someone padded their Documentary nominations with the titles of random real-life YouTube clips, and I didn't realize it was a joke (assuming it was), and the amount of extra time I spent tallying those votes, cluttering the FYC threads with them, and evaluating them for future eligibility wasn't insignificant.

Reading the full discussion that includes this post shows that I've been having this debate for years. It includes an incisive comment by MartinTeller.

If you want to make the case that season 4, episode 12 of "Dukes of Hazzard" is one of the top 5 "films" of its year, more power to you.

Im having trouble populating my top 100, so maybe i should look to Dukes. :D

Im trying just to make it a list of films that I am actively super high on. There are many films that I think are just played out for me. Theyve been favourites, ive seen them many times, but the spark to want to see it again just isnt there. Or if the last veiwing left me "meh", then its gone. I was sure i was going to have It Follows on my list but a 3rd viewing recently didnt spark me... Now im kind of done with it, even though i think its excellent. :-\ I personally am not feeling the things i first did when watching it. The enthusiasm. And there's films i just havent seen in a while and dont really know if they'd still do it for me or not... Its hard to know. A recent-ish viewing of Crouching Tiger blew me away.... Even after having seen it several times over the years, something about it was suddenly extra good to me and i felt the need to move it way up my list. Whereas my last viewing of The Village fell a bit flat. :-\

I dont think I'm watching enough, often enough, to maintaina top 100 which will satisfyy conditions.

According to the rules you can do a top 75 or 80. 

There have been a number of different lists we've been playing with as well.   Essentials, movies we think others should see, animation lists.  Perhaps you could give us a best action films or something.

I've got a solid 38 in my A team, and another 40 or so in my B team.  Good enough for now I guess. :)
