Films of the 1970s: 1970 (2018 edition)

Postby BleuPanda » Tue Nov 28, 2017 8:42 pm

I have a big weekend coming up so I'm opening this a few days early before I forget. Hope that isn't a problem.

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 December 31. New rounds will be posted on the 15th and last 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

I could do about anything, I could even learn how to love.

Imdb and Wikipedia say 1971 for this one. If it counts as 1970 I would vote for it too.

Let's go with 1971 for The Go-Betweens.

I have updated my list with Five Easy Pieces at #2.

Why are you giving points to films you don't like (15 and 16)?
Maybe not consciously, but the way they are ranked now, they will receive points I'm afraid.
I try to limit my points to films that I considered better than average.
