My number one hope for this poll is simply that Tropical Malady doesn't win.

Lady Terminator made the list! :worship: Definitely one of the most fun zany action movies I've watched recently. I kinda prefer the original title "Ransom of the South Sea Queen" purely because it makes it sound less like a Terminator rip-off.

I think this list has the highest percentage of unofficial films we ever made (except for the unofficial checks poll of course). It clearly shows how underrepresented this area is.

I'm sure the Africa and Middle East polls will provide some competition for this dubious distinction. :(

An Apichatpong Weerasethakul film (and definitely it being a film on 9 official lists compared to how many lists the other films are in) winning is anticlimactic.
