Films of the Early 20th Century: Everything Up Through 1920

Post by BleuPanda »

The rules:

You can post a list of anywhere between 1 and 15 films (or more, but only 15 will be counted) from the period we're covering. The deciding factor in terms of release dates is the RYM list and the top 15 of each period will go on to the final top 150. The deadline is September 30.

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

There are too many lists for me to bother linking them all. Just change the numbers in the ones below:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?num_vo ... pe=feature
http://rateyourmusic.com/films/chart?year=1920

If you vote for 4 movies or less, this is the adjusted scores:
4 votes
1. Movie 40 p
2. 30 p
3. 20 p
4. 15 p

3 votes
1. Movie 30 p
2. 20 p
3. 15 p

2 votes
1. Movie 20 p
2. 15 p

1 vote
1. Movie 15 p

Very hard to vote. Haven't seen much and the most of the movies I've seen are short-films (and usually I only vote for feature length movies and documentaries). Well I included three short-films which probably would had qualified anyhow.

1. One Week
2. Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari [The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari]
3. Broken Blossoms or The Yellow Man and the Girl
4. South
5. Le voyage dans la Lune [A Trip to the Moon] (1902)
6. The Great Train Robbery (1903)
7. Cabiria
8. Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam [The Golem]
9. Shoulder Arms
10. Il Fauno

Unfortunately I haven't seen enough (feature length) films from this period to make a list.
As long as Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari will make it, I'm fine.
