Even if it was written and filmed as one movie and not split up until after all that for marketing?

Yep, as far as I am concerned, whatever the reason may be it was released as one film, and thus it is one film. That's the same reason that I won't view Grindhouse as two separate films, it was released as one, doesn't matter to me that they have tried to change that after it made no money in the theaters.

The two Grindhouse films are completely separate entities. Different scripts, different directors, different sets of credits, etc. That I do consider two films. Kill Bill is one continuous story that is intended as ONE continuous story. I hear what you are saying, but you are just wrong.

Switch wrong with right, and you are on to something.  ;)

actually, yr both wrong.  Grindhouse is 3 films.

You mean the trailers in between. :P

Keith is right, Grindhouse is 3 films.  Last year votes for Grindhouse, Death Proof and Planet Terror were all accepted.  Kill Bill, as last year, seperate movies.

As for movie series like LotR, Star Wars, etc etc, they'll obviously be counted as seperate movies.  Anything listed as a mini series or tv series on imdb will not be eligible, so please don't waste your votes on Decalog or The Wire.  The Red Riding trilogy, although made for TV, aren't listed as such on imdb and thus are eligible, but as seperate entities.

TV movies also eligible.

I think that clears up most of the issues?

How about short films? I see a lot of people with La Jetee in their top 100.

Posted a list in the Top 100 thread but they weren't in any particular preference. Will need to rethink and resubmit before the deadline. Don't seem to get to watch much these days but will try and cover some obvious gaps in the meantime.
Let's do some wholesome DVD spanking.

Is Dog Star Man considered a bunch of short films or one feature length....? Most lists i see call it one thing (TSPDT, 1001MTSBYD), but IMDb breaks it down (likely because the portions were released in seperate years).

I'd say Dog Star Man (and Histoire(s) du cinema, which I'll again be the only person voting for) should be counted as one film.

I'm working up to it by watching more Godard films (think the only 80's Godard I have left is King Lear - starring Molly Ringwald!)

I've got a few films that need revisiting before deciding where they should place on the top 100 (if anywhere). All of them have only received one viewing so far:

-The Fly
-JFK
-Indecent Proposal (What can I say, it made a big impression on me when I watched it four years ago. This and Unfaithful. I found both incredibly disturbing.  :-\)
-Lars and the Real Girl
-The Prestige
