FACTS, FIGURES & FUCK I NEED ANOTHER F...

Recommended Posts

Eventually I will post a full quick and dirty of all the results but I have almost additional movies that received votes so that is going to take awhile.

What I will do - is post random stuff as I go through the list over and over if anyone cares

The title of this topic is full of so much win and clickbait.

Here is a very simple thing for me to throw out (and probably the only one I will have today)

THE MOVIES THAT GOT SCREWED LIST (aka the movies that had 95 points and the cutoff was 96)

RECEIVED ONLY 1 VOTE (Meaning one person had it #6)

Play Time
Red White & Blue
The Assassination of Jesse James…

RECEIVED ONLY 1 VOTE AND A HONORABLE MENTION

The Quiet Man

  • This one is Matt's fault as if he had put it on his ballot instead of the HM it most likely makes it

RECEIVED TWO AND THREE VOTES RESPECTIVELY
Stalag 17
The 400 Blows

That's crazy because I joked that I would have voted for Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion if I had seen it before I submitted my list. I watched it like the day of the deadline.

Dirty Harry is an odd one in that I don't think there's any disputing that it has THE iconic scene of Eastwood's career yet I am pretty comfortable saying I think several of his westerns are much better overall movies.

 

I was one of the 400 Blows voters. Truffaut was an important stepping stone in my own film discovery process as a curious young man.

I had it at #50

400 Blows was definitely hurt by the normal voting population leaving - specifically Hollinger, Yo-Yo and Ohtani's Jacket - as all three of them had it in the Top 20 of the 50s poll

It was also hurt by Jae voting for it on the 50s poll but not the GOAT poll

You could say that a lot of Truffaut potentially got short-changed. In my case it's just because he's a big blindspot for me.

One or all of the FCSs movies would almost certainly make my Top 100 Horror Movie ballot and I would tinker with the definition of "horror" so that they would qualify.

They are exploitation at its finest... if there is such a thing as "fine" exploitation...

Meiko Kaji also turns in a performance for the ages in both of the Lady Snowblood movies.

Lady Snowblood is fucking great. The good Kill Bill movie is basically a shot for shot remake for large portions.

I grew up around dog shows as a kid and Best In Show is marvelous. I've *met* all these characters, it's so bang on it hurts.
