Howdy!

This month's poll is for 1997. What a year, what a year....one that, totally coincidentally, my "cousin-in-law" has just published a book about about.</shameless plug> The three previous results, if you're interested in how the polls work, can be seen here: 1976, 1939, and 1968.

Rules:

- Reply here with a list of titles you've seen from 1997. You can vote for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 films.

- Feature films, documentaries, short films, TV movies and TV mini-series are all eligible, but not continuing TV series or individual TV episodes.

- We use IMDb dates for consistency, so a title should be listed on IMDb as 1997.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked. If it's ranked - it's easiest if you number the list; if it's unranked - please state that clearly.

- You may update your ballot at any time before the poll closes.

The scoring:

You may list choices in order of preference, in which case your top film will receive a number of points equal to the number of films in your list up to 20, with each next-ranked film receiving one fewer point; or in no order, in which case each film will receive the same number of points. So, for example, if you only vote for 5 ranked films, your top film will receive 5 points and your 5th-place film will receive 1 point. If you vote for 20 unranked films, each film will receive 10.5 points; if you vote for 5 unranked films, each film will receive 3 points, etc.

Some resources:

1997 films you've rated on IMDb

1997 films sorted by most votes on IMDb

1997 films you've checked on ICM

1997 films you *haven't* checked on ICM

This poll will run for at least three weeks, at least until Sunday 3 December. I'll announce the exact deadline near to that date.

The next poll will be for 1958.

Seems there is a competition going to see who can vote on as many as possible movies that nobody else has voted for.

And of course nobody has had the same #1

I'll have to report back later to post my list...I was always dependent on filtering my IMDB ratings for these kinds of yearly or genre lists, and IMDB's removal of those filtering functions (fuckers!) makes this more time-consuming. I guess the easiest thing would be to export to Excel and sort that way (sort by year, then user rating). Argh...I'll be back. B)

I always do it by exporting my ratings and then filter and sort the csv, but exporting doesn't work for me right now. So I exported by checks at iCM filtered by year-1997. Then I sorted by title, so I could easily remove TV-episodes. Then I made a new IMDb-list of the rest (about 120) and exported that list from IMDb to sort it by rating.
Bit of a hassle. :wacko:

I'll have to report back later to post my list...I was always dependent on filtering my IMDB ratings for these kinds of yearly or genre lists, and IMDB's removal of those filtering functions (fuckers!) makes this more time-consuming. I guess the easiest thing would be to export to Excel and sort that way (sort by year, then user rating). Argh...I'll be back. B)
GT - I always sort with this feature, which is working as usual: http://www.imdb.com/search/title ...If you haven't used it before, just be sure to select "restrict to titles I've seen".
