Films of the Early 20th Century: 1921-1923 (2021 edition)

Post by Petri »

Welcome to the 11th part of films of the early 20th century. This time we are focusing on years 1921-1923.

1. 1948-1949
2. 1946-1947
3. 1944-1945
4. 1942-1943
5. 1939-1941
6. 1936-1938
7. 1933-1935
8. 1930-1932
9. 1927-1929
10. 1924-1926
11. 1921-1923
12. 18xx-1920



The rules:

You can post a list of anywhere between 1 and 20 films (or more, but only 20 will be counted) from the period we're covering. The deciding factor in terms of release dates is the IMDb list and the top 15 of each period will go on to the final top 180. The deadline is April 30. New rounds will be posted on the 16th and first day of each month.

The points scheme is as follows:
1. 50
2. 40
3. 35
4. 30
5. 25
6. 20
7. 18
8. 16
9. 14
10. 12
11. 10
12. 9
13. 8
14. 7
15. 6
16. 5
17. 4
18. 3
19. 2
20. 1

However, these are the maximum amounts of points. If you want to put certain films on your list but don't want to give them too many points, you can choose to give these less points than in this scheme (but never more) to decrease the impact on the overall results. If you don't specifically state that you want to give (some of) your films fewer points, I will assume the standard scheme.

If you vote for 4 movies or less, this is the adjusted scores:
4 votes
1. Movie 40 p
2. 35 p
3. 30 p
4. 25 p

3 votes
1. Movie 35 p
2. 30 p
3. 25 p

2 votes
1. Movie 30 p
2. 25 p

1 vote
1. Movie 25 p

Question about Dr. Mabuse:
IMDb says it is a one four hour long movie
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0013086/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2
But RYM says two movies

https://rateyourmusic.com/film/dr__mabu ... erer_zeit/

I would follow IMDb on this.
