To be honest I can't see G liking Aliens.

Maybe if they all had cockney accents and wore brown suits.

The Usual Suspects (1995)
Voters: fange (5), Copehead (4), WG Kaspar (5), The modernist (3)
Position in 2011 poll: #89 (up 40)
I would not put it in my top 100 but to each their own.

Midnight Cowboy (1969)
Voters: John Coan (6), fange (5), martha (1), Snarfyguy (5)
Position in 2011 poll: New!
How on earth was this NOT on here before?

Pulp Fiction (1994)
Voters: fange (5), Copehead (2), kath (5), Ranking Ted (5)
Position in 2011 poll: #43 (down 6)
Wouldn't make my top 100 but I don't dislike it.

Barry Lyndon (1975)
Voters: PresMuffley (5), PENK (4), Davey the Fat Boy (5), Jumper K (4)
Position in 2011 poll: #100 (up 54)
Well....definitely one of Kubricks better movies.

The Conversation (1974)
Voters: Davey the Fat Boy (5), Ranking Ted (5), Snarfyguy (5), The Write Profile (3)
Position in 2011 poll: #76 (up 20)
I love this movie. I think I voted for it last time and decided this time that it would make it without me. Glad it did.

Akira (1988)
Voters: driftin (1), never/ever (7), pcqgod (5), fange (5)
Position in 2011 poll: New!
Fantastic manga. Just brilliant. The anime though only barely resembles it.

The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Voters: fange (5), WG Kaspar (5), hippopotamus (5), Ranking Ted (5)
Position in 2011 poll: #36 (down 8)
One of my favorites. I love it.

La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc [The Passion of Joan of Arc] (1928)
Voters: driftin (1), joels344 (4), algroth (10), Davey the Fat Boy (5)
Position in 2011 poll: #99 (up 55)
Visually very beautiful, I was confident it would be here whether I voted for it or not.

El espíritu de la colmena [Spirit of the Beehive] (1973)
Voters: driftin (1), PENK (9), Snarfyguy (5), The Write Profile (6)
Position in 2011 poll: #30 (down 13)
I had not seen this last time we had this poll and the poll is why I saw it. I was glad I did.

It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)
Voters: Goat Boy (2), kath (5), Darkness_Fish (10), hippopotamus (5)
Position in 2011 poll: #32 (down 9)
Not my favorite Capra (that would be Arsenic and Old Lace), not my favorite Jimmy Stewart film either (that's a toss up between The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Harvey, Rear Window and Vertigo), but a wonderful movie even if it is incredibly sappy and wouldn't make my top 100 films.

Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushu [Spirited Away] (2001)
Voters: driftin (1), never/ever (6), martha (10), kath (5)
Position in 2011 poll: New!
I love it. I mean, I love Totoro almost as much and it was hard choosing between them...great movie

12 Angry Men (1957)
Voters: John Coan (12), fange (5), Copehead (2), WG Kaspar (5)
Position in 2011 poll: #45 (up 5)
Lumet makes some damn fine films and picking between them is really difficult -- I nearly picked 12 Angry Men as my Lumet film this year, but I voted for it last time, and my favorite Lumet is Dog Day Afternoon, and I had a sort of tentative one film per director rule in play. Of course...that's bullshit because In the end I didn't vote for DDA and II let in 2 films each in by Gilliam, Reiner and Kurosawa. But...good call on 12 Angry Men. Great movie... :)

Performance (1970)
Voters: Goat Boy (5), Ranking Ted (5), Snarfyguy (5), The modernist (10)
Position in 2011 poll: #28 (down 10)
Movies I STILL have not seen:
Performance (1970)


Aliens (1986)
Voters: Goat Boy (10), Martha (1), PENK (9), WG Kaspar (5)
Position in 2011 poll: New!
Whatever haters. I love it.

New batch is up! Some major names just dropped in too, surely some will be surprised at seeing these outside the top 10.

Speaking of which, anyone want to take a guess at the films missing so far?

I dunno, what haven't we had? The Godfather, obviously. Has Goodfellas shown up yet?

Interesting to see Children of Men, I'd forgotten about that one.

Just had a quick look at the list so far. We haven't had Vertigo, Deliverance, American Graffiti, Bonnie & Clyde, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, Raging Bull, Silence of the Lambs, Se7en, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah & Her Sisters, Apocalypse Now, Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, and a thousand others...

Not to mention anything by Fellini, Godard, Kurosawa, Antonioni, Lynch, Leone, etc.

How about Touch of Evil? Fight Club came up on some British poll years back at number one, so I can't discount that either. Empire Strikes Back, 2001, The Searchers or Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance, geez - I could do this all day.

I think we're going to see a more idiosyncratic top 30 because we had so few voters. It's becoming clear that half of us didn't want to "waste a vote" on something like Godfather II, figuring that films like that didn't "need" the vote.

Should be interesting.

I'd be shocked if these films weren't still coming:

The Godfather
This Is Spinal Tap
Touch of Evil
Vertigo
Taxi Driver
2001: A Space Odyssey
Once Upon a Time in America (strangely loved here more than West).
Alien (same folks who voted for Aliens surely must have ranked it higher).

Other than these, I can name another 30 or 40 that seem like good bets. But there's only another 22 slots - so who knows?

I'm just surprised that some I ranked highly have finally started to appear. I thought it was going to be all b&w Polish animations and tone-poems about autism from hereon in.

To be honest the taste in this forum is hardly Refuge-level of esoterism. There's a handful of people interested in arthouse and foreign cinema here but you're hardly going to see a Lav Diaz fanclub thread being started any time soon. :)
