Is there a big feature on it in the mag? The website isn't working for me.

elab49 -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 8:11:36 PM)

The site keeps falling over. The new mag - presumably out tomorrow - will be dedicated to the list. The front cover is entirely handed over to it. 




FritzlFan -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 8:13:26 PM)

Cheers. [:)] That's quite an interesting list, although a shame to not see any films released since the last one. Great to see Mulholland Drive there.




ElephantBoy -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 8:17:09 PM)

The Top four is a pretty strong selection 2001 has no place there through[:D]

Qwerty Norris -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 10:40:10 PM)

Some of those entries make one very sad. The intellectual love-in for Godard will forever alienate me. [:(] (still, fucking delighted Breathless missed out on the top 10 [:D]).

Pleased by the inclusion of Mulholland Drive (even if it's not my favourite Lynch) & surprised Vertigo has been deemed the greatest - although it's a worthy number 1.

Still, Citizen Kane for me really...

The most likely candidate would almost certainly have been There Will Be Blood.

Anyway, of the whole list, I have seen 28.

Of the top ten:
I have seen 70%
I have 30% in my own top ten
10% is fucking atrocious.




MovieAddict247 -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:07:48 PM)

I've only seen 12 overall. I've only seen one of the top 10, which is pretty poor indeed.

Would you like to re-register under a different ID, please?

[:D]

(Was the one 2001 or The Searchers?)

2001.....I know, it's tragic!

But I do have Vertigo on DVD so will watch it in the coming week (which is something I've been saying for over a month...)




homersimpson_esq -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:22:50 PM)

Well, if it was going to be any of them, I'm glad it's that one...!




rawlinson -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:25:47 PM)

The biggest problem with this list is the fact every voter only gets ten films. I've read people who take part say that they often want to make sure a director gets into the list so they'll vote for the film they think most likely to get other votes rather than a personal favourite.




elab49 -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:29:56 PM)

Ah - you mean like we tried to do with Brookmyre in the Book on.....

Um, nothing. Ignore me.




MonsterCat -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:37:30 PM)

I've only seen maybe four or five movies from that list.

I'm such an uncultured fool.




elab49 -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (1/8/2012 11:40:42 PM)

I only have 5 of them in my top 100 and only like about 18 of them. I wouldn't worry about it. Better films to see first [:)]




MOTH -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (2/8/2012 9:16:32 AM)

Here's a handy print-out-and-keep checklist that I made for my blog, if you want to keep a record of what you've seen/would like to see.

Yeah, but you're a well known enemy of film. Cahiers keeps your picture on the wall next to Armond White and Michael Bay.

[sm=happy07.gif]

If not for the company, that would make me so proud.




rawlinson -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (2/8/2012 9:26:38 AM)

I actually think the worst film on that list is Le Mepris, mainly because it would struggle to make my top 10 Godard. There's a couple of others I'm not a huge fan of, but mostly I thought it was a great list.




elab49 -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (2/8/2012 9:44:25 AM)

Vertigo isn't in my top 10 Hitchcock, that's what's so annoying for me. The best film of all time has a lead actress (whose acting was generally questionable) and a lead actor who, for me, gave one of his most uncomfortable and unconvincing performances. Baffling.

*puts aside time to watch Le Mepris, based solely on rawlinson's anti-recommendation*

How do two people who clearly know nothing about film end up as moderators at a film website? When you throw PA into the mix it begins to seem like becoming a moderator is the Empire equivalent of being given an award just for trying so darn hard. [:D]




impqueen -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (2/8/2012 9:58:16 AM)

Well 6 of the Top 10 are in my Top 100 and there are 17 overall. I’m not a big fan of about half a dozen.




st3veebee -> RE: Sight & Sound Poll 2012 (2/8/2012 10:13:07 AM)

I have only seen 14 of these and had to look up 2 of the top 10. No Jaws? Pan's Labyrinth? Coens Brothers?? Casablanca?!?!??!?!

I don't like this list [:'(]

How can you dislike a list when you've only seen 14 out of the 50?
