Films of the 1990s: 1994 (2024 Edition)

Post by BleuPanda »

You can post a list of anywhere between 5 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 year will go on to the final top 150 (plus a few bonus films). New rounds will be posted on the 16th and first day of each month. The deadline for this poll is April 30th.

The points scheme is as follows:
1. 50
2. 45
3. 40
4. 36
5. 32
6. 28
7. 25
8. 22
9. 19
10. 16
11. 14
12. 13
13. 12
14. 11
15. 10
16. 9
17. 8
18. 7
19. 6
20. 5

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.

Top 15 in previous 1994 poll:
1. (1.) Pulp Fiction (Quentin Tarantino, USA), 545 points, 12 votes , 7 #1 votes
2. (3.) Trois couleurs: Rouge [Three colors: Red] (Krzysztof Kieslowski, France), 326 points, 12 votes , 1 #1 vote
3. (2.) The Shawshank Redemption (Frank Darabont, USA), 272 points, 12 votes , 1 #1 vote
4. (9.) Sátántangó [Satan's Tango] (Bela Tarr, Hungary), 188 points, 5 votes , 1 #1 vote
5. (18.) Ed Wood (Tim Burton, USA), 169 points, 10 votes , 1 #1 vote
6. (6.) Riget (The Kingdom) | Lars von Trier | Denmark, 164 points, 6 votes , 0 #1 votes
7. (8.) 重慶森林 [Chungking Express] (Wong Kar Wai, Hong Kong), 161 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
8. (12.) Hoop Dreams (Steve James, USA), 158 points, 6 votes , 1 #1 vote
9. (10.) Crumb (Terry Zwigoff, USA), 153 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
10. (5.) Léon [The Professional] (Luc Besson, France), 147 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
11. (4.) Forrest Gump (Robert Zemeckis, USA), 130 points, 7 votes , 1 #1 vote
12. (22.) The Lion King (Roger Allers/Rob Minkoff, USA), 126 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
13. (7.) Clerks – Kevin Smith (USA), 112 points, 6 votes , 1 #1 vote
14. (13.) Quiz Show (Robert Redford, USA), 111 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
15. (13.) Trois couleurs: Blanc (Three Colours: White) | Krzyztof Kieslowski | France, Poland, Switzerland, 85 points, 8 votes , 0 #1 votes
