I spoke with algroth on the What'sApp today and his internet service is currently down. His internet should be working again on Monday, though.


He's broken the internet!

The spam filter won't let him post the poster for Porky's.

Not the spam filter, unfortunately - I've been without internet connection for over a week now. Currently I'm using my mobile's hotspot function to get some access to the web, but this is pretty limited and I'm afraid I won't be able to update the poll till this nonsense is resolved.

Really surprised to see The Godfather drop to 36, but Alice in the Cities is a wonderful little film, a welcome entry at 32. Interesting to see the three Fellini films all bunched together like that too. Can't wait for the top twenty!

I'm going to change this back to a normal topic type. I can always sticky it again when or if Al is ready to post, but I don't think any of us want to keep seeing an inactive thread like this at the top of the page.

So how is this going, Al? Need any help to complete this?

Indeed, he could text or email the list to someone else and it could be posted (even with pictures) right here.

At what point do we start hunting him down with pitchforks and torches?

Give it a few more weeks. If it's still not happening, I'm going to do a new one.

To be honest, I'm more in favour of the torches and pickforks than the poll. Who's with me?

I still don't see why he can't just email someone the list and they can post it themselves. Do we really need all the pictures?

Another update is in! Sorry for the delay, there is really no excuse. :oops:

Also due to a blunder with the rankings on my part I've updated the positions for the rest of the list. Since the list still ends on a ten-way tie, I'm making the poll cover 101 films instead of the original supposed 100.

I'll be trying to finish off the list through the next two weeks or so.

Is there any chance you can start putting them up in larger batches? It's very difficult to maintain interest if it's just four or five films then another long wait.

Sure. I am trying to get batches of 7-9 films from now on, though I will probably do the top 10 in two updates of five. I added eight new films this update.
