Films of the 1980s: 1984 (2017 edition)

Postby Petri » Wed May 17, 2017 9:04 am

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 150. The deadline is 15th of June. If you haven't voted for your favorite movies of 1983 there's is still two weeks left to do it.


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.

Here are some lists to remind you of the films released in 1984:

IMDb
RYM
Films101
RottenTomatoes

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

The same movies in top 8 than last time (only in different order). Heimat qualified although antonius didn't even vote.
Repo Man (again a movie beefsupreme is a big fan of) was the only one that were in top 10 last time but missed the final now. I actually rewatched it this week. It's a great movie (liked it more than in first view) and I love the atmosphere but 1984 is such a good movie year (so it stayed at #15 on my list).
