The only one I've seen from this year is Animal Crackers.

Have so many people seen All Quiet because they had to read the book in school?

That's where I first saw it, at least.

I read the book in school, but I didn't watch the film until a few years later as part of my IMDb marathon.

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

What are all these yearly polls for? They're intimidating. Probably because I've only seen on average like 4 of the films from each year.
Are you going to combine all the results (top 5 or something) in another topic?

No real purpose, save to give people some viewing ideas.
