Films of the 1960s: 1966 (2019 edition)

Post by The_Claw » Mon Jun 17, 2019 10:32 am

Welcome to the year 1966!

Image

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 July 15. 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

PS Don't forget that you can also still participate in the 1965 film poll until June 30.

This film is from 1967, according to IMDb. You may consider it for next year.

An issue. Technically, War and Peace is a film series in four separately released parts. But it is often judged as a one 8-hour epic, for instance at They Shoot Pictures Don't They. IMDb has entries for both the entire film and the four separate parts. I am enclined to treat the series as an entire film (which would mean that I would move the films that Greg rated lower than #6 one place up), but I am open to suggestions.

Yes, it's probably better to treat it as one film for the purpose of a poll.

Considering it as one film is fine by me. Should probably then be counted as a 1967 film, though.

I agree that it would make more sense to consider it a 1967 film, but the rules say that we should follow IMDb. And that has Voyna i Mir listed as a 1966 film.
