Re: Any interest for new best movies of all time poll?

I'm always in. A simple sum of points poll or a two-stage something format? The latter would yield more interesting results I think, but there are of course many other advantages of a straight-forward poll. I think a simple sum of points poll would be fine. The turnout would be greater and maybe so...

Any interest for new best movies of all time poll?

I watched Dawn of the Dead and realised it was the last movie in our (AMF) ”Top 100 Films of all-time list” I hadn't seen before. So I think it might be good time for new best of all time movie poll. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who has watched tons (or at least hundreds) of new movies after...

Here's two great (probably my #1 and #2 of the year) songs in English outside the US and UK (+ Ireland and Canada).

1991 is definitely an album year for me. It felt almost impossible and even pointless to rank songs. So many great albums with so many fantastic songs but no stand out songs. After my #1 there could be almost any song from my top 11 albums (and many songs from #12- albums). Songs 1 . Stina Nordensta...
