Films of the 1960s: 1969 (2019 edition)

Post by The_Claw » Thu Aug 01, 2019 5:21 pm

Welcome to the year 1969!

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. Because I'll be on a holiday, the deadline will be September 15.

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 still participate in the 1968 film poll until August 31.

I love that despite the fact that we've had four different people run these yearly film polls, the sentence explaining the rules of the game are still the words I wrote 6 years ago. Also, my top 5 for 1969 is still exactly the same:
1. Army Of Shadows (Jean-Pierre Melville)
2. Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (George Roy Hill)
3. The Wild Bunch (Sam Peckinpah)
4. The Italian Job (Peter Collinson)
5. On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Peter R. Hunt)

I should really watch Easy Rider one of these days..

Thanks for your vote! Once Upon a Time in the West is listed as a 1968 film in IMDb. I'll move the films ranked lower in your list one place up.

Thank you! All the movie lists I keep are based on U.S. release dates, so I figured I'd have at least one of those!
