Films of the 1990s: Guess the results -thread

Postby Petri » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:29 am

The countdown will start shortly of The Top 150 movies of 1980s THE FINAL RESULTS.

Because some people don't want any spoilers I created this thread for all those who want to guess the results and speculate what will be in the next bunch of five, in bottom 10, top 10, which director has the smallest average rank or what ever you will.
Be free to speculate anything considering the results here. 8-) ;)

Bottom 10 (hard to guess since I'd imagine more people have seen and gave lower placement to Bad Lieutenant than, say, King of New York, even if most would agree Bad Lieutenant is the better film; films have to both be widely seen and generally less appreciated to land this low due to our formula. Even one person really liking a movie can generally drag it out of this rank):
Bad Lieutenant
Basic Instinct
In the Line of Fire
James and the Giant Peach
Jerry Maguire
Leaving Las Vegas
Out of Sight
Point Break
Sleepless in Seattle
The Godfather, Part III

Top 10 (easier because they're the popular films everyone has seen):
Breaking the Waves
Fargo
Festen
Goodfellas
Magnolia
Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
The Big Lebowski
Trainspotting
Princess Mononoke

Thanks for starting the thread. Here are my guesses. The bottom 10 seems harder than the top 10, because obscure films might benefit from the point system and be closer to the middle than the bottom.

1. Pulp Fiction
2. The Silence of the Lambs
3. Goodfellas
4. Magnolia
5. The Big Lebowski
6. Fargo
7. Boogie Nights
8. Trois couleurs: Rouge
9. Schindler's List
10. The Usual Suspects

141. Election
142. Dark City
143. The English Patient
144. Quiz Show
145. Simple Men
146. The Adjuster
147. Le Mari de la coiffeuse
148. Sleepless in Seattle
149. Leaving Las Vegas
150. Bad Lieutenant
