You can vote for films pre - 1920 as well. The list is covering everything from the beginning of cinema to 1929. 


That makes things a lot easier .

Well this thread has just given my ego a boost. NOBODY reads my posts.  It was just a bit clunky to write Decades Poll: 1888 - 1929.

Thanks for the recs, 'barb.

Everyone should watch The Passion Of Joan Of Arc before voting It would be a tragedy if it didn't make the list. Check out L'Inferno(1911) too. It's a great piece of cinema

I think quite a few people might have caught it when it was put in for the Hall of Fame (Joan) - the feedback seemed quite good.

That film is fucking insane.

The prof nominated it a month after me homer and rhubarb had caught a live screening with new score. So it was always likely to do fairly well with those points guaranteed.

Ah, ok. A lot of people I know have seen the obvious classics from that era like Nosferatu, Chaplin etc. But when I mention Joan of Arc I'm often met with blank expressions even though it's considered one of the best of its time. For me it's probably the best of the silent era along with Chaplins The Circus

^This. I don't think I've ever seen such a casual attitude towards coke and opium either. Brilliant.

I have just put together a tentative 50, and it has 13 Buster films in.

I've just put the top 20 listed films by IMDB for the decade on my Lovefilm list so hopefully I shall be able to watch enough of them before the deadline. A number of them are available to stream so I reckon I'll be watching Sherlock Jr. and The General tonight at least.

My favourite part is when he's on the front of the moving train and he uses one sleeper (I think they are called sleepers, right?) to knock the other off the track. Simple but brilliant. Oh and the train on the bridge is still damn impressive after 90 years.

Indeed it is, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of the gags were totally outrageous (the riderless bike scene and the train and water tower bit) and some were just awe inspiring, even now. When he entered the cinema screen in daydream mode and had to deal with all the edits and cut aways, that was just fraking amazing.

I'll watch the General tonight.

Keaton broke his neck doing this and didn't even realise until a trip to the doctors years later. That's hardcore

Including pre-1920s films I've seen around 30. So I could put a list together right now but I'll try to watch some other films first.

I like him but much fewer of his films reach the absolute top level for me (The Kid Brother, Safety Last!, Grandma's Boy) which is a shame. I find him enjoyable in general though, and would rather watch him than silent L&H.

I think Sons of the Desert is alright actually, I can't remember where it placed in my voting. I think they're okay, but they're not my preference. They're better in sound films because the dynamic works better, in the silent ones I always feel like they're not in any real danger and they always have one another.

They made some great silent films though, Two Tars obviously influenced Week End.

It's not mentioned often in reviews, but the dance in Bande a part was actually JLG's tribute to the 'At the Ball' sequence in Way Out West.

Just watched The General. I'd seen most of it before in bits but this was the first time for me to watch it from start to finish. I thought it was great, really great. It's a slightly superior film to Sherlock Jr. IMO, though Sherlock Jr probably has the better gags.

Only another 15 or so films to go and I can submit a top 20
