AMF - Favorite Motion Pictures Of 2018: LIST THREAD

Post by Cold Butterfly » Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:13 am

The rules:

You can post a list of anywhere between 1 and 20 films that were released this year. A maximum of 20 films will be counted. However, feel free to include more than that if you feel inclined to give attention to some honorable mentions. Commentary is encouraged, and will be utilized in the rollout of results.

Film Eligibility:

-Films released within the 2018 calendar year.

-Films that were previously unacclaimed, but received mass notice this year.

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 them 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

Deadline to submit lists is by the end of March 5th.

I'll participate either way, but I'd suggest extending the deadline until maybe May or June, since a lot of the year's big films from Asia, Europe, South America, etc., aren't being released here in the States until this spring

No problem, Bootsy. The deadline isn’t until two months from now, so there isn’t any rush :music-rockon:

If you saw the other thread, due to my personal issues going on at the moment, I won't be able to make a presentation and rollout.

There's two days left to submit lists, and the results will be posted on Sunday.
