Films of the 1980s: Guess the results -thread

Postby Petri » Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:26 pm

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-) ;)

Any thoughts about bottom 10? :)

The biggest droppers:
1. Down 79 positions
2. -77
3. -75
4. -65
5. -61

The greatest gainers
1. Up 60 positions (a huge leap considering that last time we had only top 100)
2. +52
3. +48
3. +48
4. +28

Great guesses.
A new statistical "spoiler". There are 34 "new" entries (movies that weren't in the top 100 in the last round) inside the top 100 (65 in top 150). The average rank of five highest is #30. So there going to be some very high new entries.
