Filmspotters' Top Movies - The Countdown! (list made in 2009)
« on: August 29, 2009, 01:34:54 PM »
So it's that time again, a year has passed since our first list and now we begin unveiling the 2nd list.  There will be changes, new entries, movies moving up and down and movies leaving the countdown all together.

Last year we had 490 movies nominated for the elite 100 postions, this year we increased that number to 1388.  Which 100 will be lucky enough to make it?

We've seen a few movies that didn't make the list so far, such as The Dark Knight, Le Cercle Rouge and Toy Story.

As last year, the full spreadsheet will be made available once the results have been revealed.  So sit back, relax and once again, feel free to boo and cheer the results.

And here we go...
