Deadline: midnight PST March 19, 2016 (8AM GMT March 20).


Once again it's time for the forum's favourite films (includes shorts and docs as well) list.

Rules:
1) Make a list of your favorite films (Films include feature length films, short films, mini-series, whatever has an entry on IMDB, except TV series no video games either.).
You can submit a list in one of three ways:
1. Imdb list (preferred)
2. ICM list
3. List of imdb urls if you can't make an imdb list.
Make sure your (imdb/icm) list is public!

2) There is no maximum number of films, but each film on your list must only be listed once.

3) Submit a link to your IMDB/ICM list here, by midnight PST March 19, 2016 (8AM GMT March 20). I will download all lists at the deadline, so feel free to submit an incomplete list and keep editing your list until the deadline.

4) I will assume your list is RANKED unless you specify otherwise.
Other than a ranked list you can submit your list in one of the following ways:
- Unranked: All films get the same number of points (Pts are determined by the length of your list, same amount of total points as if the list had been ranked).
- Partially ranked: Top X is ranked, rest is unranked
- Group ranked: You have to specify the groups that go together, all films in the group get the same number of points. (eg: 11-20, 21-30, 31-50, 51-100)

Last year the point system was Points=100*(0.5)^((R-1)/175) I'll be using the same this year. Here's some example values for the less mathematically inclined:
Spoiler: click to toggle




Some helpful tools for making an imdb list:
Imdb Helper: This Greasemonkey script lets you paste either movie titles or imdb urls all together and will search them in order, saving you from having to cut and paste one by one.
Linky A firefox addon that lets you highlight multiple links and copy all the urls together at once. Useful if you've already got an existing list on imdb you want to copy, or for copying advanced search results (like all movies you've rated above 9).

My List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls006062066/
I'm probably going to rework the second half, but I've been saying that for a while so we'll see.

I'm still in the process of rewatching all my favorites and that makes me doubt my ranking of the unrewatched movies, so I think I'll make the rest unranked. But I also think there are a lot of 8's I should favorite, so now I'm thinking of adding them too. I think I'll submit my list just before the deadline......

I might do something like that, but still I've got a lot of rewatching to do before I submit it.

Here's my list: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls076658980/
I spent most of January meticulously updating and ordering it, but a lot of it feels arbitrary, especially the latter half, so i might do the group ranking thing as well.

For now, consider it ranked. I'll add the films I've seen from this year to the list shortly before the deadline. I also need to figure out if I want to include shorts or not this year; I just find it so difficult to compare them to features, that any ranking will seem silly.

Made a quick Top 100 :) I watched like 500 new feature films in the past 12 months so my lists are starting to feel unwieldy. Guess I'll keep it simple.

Bump. Maybe we should have a more prominent link in the header of the forum for this thread? It's not very noticeable right now and it's the most important poll we do after 500<400.

That's no ant, mate. Nobody should mess with the use of capitals. This is not some minor issue. It's essential OCD, and I completely agree with Lammetje. :P

Top 50 ranked, rest unranked. None of my new favourites since the last poll make the top 50 I think, certainly not changed that bit for now at least.
