    RYM film chart


    Deadline is JUNE. If you need an extension just say so and it will absolutely be considered. This is usually just a soft deadline to make sure everybody doesn't become complacent.

    REMEMBER for those of you who haven't seen many films from this year or in general, you can always submit lists as small as only having 5 submissions.

    Rules:

    - Please submit at least 5 films.
    - First place in your rankings gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, etcetc, 10th gets 1.
    - Feel free to post more than 10, but only the top 10 will get points.
    - Feel free to post less than 10, the same scoring will apply.
    - Feel free not to rank your picks, in which case all ten picks will get 5.5 points.
    - If you're so much of a dick that you have to post more than 10 unranked picks, the maths will be worked out.

    since it seems unlikely at this point we'd ever get enough votes to bother doing any pre-'60s years, i'd quite like to see a decade poll for the earlier decades at some point.

    Yesss, feed those old decades into the random number cruncher so we can do one sometime soon. Or just do a decade whenever you feel like changing things up a bit.

    Probably makes sense to do the 1950's first and see how it goes.

    I've never seen Last Wave or Sorcerer (and 1977 in general seems to be a year that slipped by me), so I don't have as much to contribute to this one. Here's a provisional list of seven (if I don't revise you can count it as is):

    1. Eraserhead
    2. Suspiria
    3. Equus
    4. House
    5. Powers of Ten (nerd choice but I love it)
    6. Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    7. Star Wars

    I feel like Equus isn't a great film, but I've always been very fond of it. The original play is fantastic.
