Films of the 2000s: 2002 (2016 edition)

Post by Petri »

It's time for the 2002 movie poll.

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 RYM list and the top 15 of each period will go on to the final top 150. The deadline is 29th of February. If you haven't voted for your favorite movies of 2001 there's is still two weeks left to do it (the deadline of that poll is February 14.) The 2003 poll will be opened on 15th of February.

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.

Here are some lists to remind you of the films released in 2002:

IMDb
RYM
Films101
RottenTomatoes

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

The first five are in my top 100. Hero remains one of my favourite films of all time, I could put it on at any time and remain raptured. Russian Ark is mind-blowing and that grand-ball scene was breathtaking. It was Julianne Moore's year though, Far From Heaven is great and even The Hours was fantastic (though it was almost over-cooked). I think One Hour Photo was something of a paradox: music video director known for big statement pieces and a comedy legend create a disturbing and subtle thriller. I loved every minute.

1. Hero (#10 of AT)
2. Russian Ark
3. Far from Heaven
4. One Hour Photo
5. Hours, The

6. City of God
7. Catch Me If You Can
8. Frida
9. 28 Days Later...
10. Gangs of New York
11. Punch-Drunk Love
12. Adaptation.
13. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The
14. Blade II
15. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
16. Chicago
17. Lilo & Stitch
18. Minority Report
19. Rabbit-Proof Fence

49 . (52) La caja 507 (Box 507) – Enrique Urbizu (Spain) , 25 points , 1 vote , 0 #1 votes
49 . (52) Halbe Treppe – Andreas Dresen , 25 points , 1 vote , 0 #1 votes
49 . (17) Gangs of New York (Martin Scorsese) , 25 points , 5 votes , 0 #1 votes
49 . (46) Distant (Nuri Bilge Ceylan) , 25 points , 1 vote , 0 #1 votes

Again most of the top 15 of last times 2002 poll did well this time too (in top 8 there were 8 of last times top 9 movies). Hero and Russian Ark did better this time (I guess many have seen Sokurov's movie after last poll (I included)). For me it was a surprise was that Michael Moore got a movie to the final top 150 (Bowling for Culumbine is his best in my books though).

Lilja 4-ever (last time #14) got only 14 points and was #61 and Mies vailla menneisyyttä (Man without a Past) (last time #15) would have been even lower (#86) without Greg's last minute vote. Still the biggest surprise for me was how badly Gangs of New York managed (considering how well Scorsese's movies have often succeeded in these polls).

Edit. In addition I'm disappointed for bad placement of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeancy considering how well the second part of Park's vengeancy trilogy is doing in 2003 poll (and I prefer the first part). Many still haven't seen it I guess.

Man. I forgot to this. Distant would have received 40 more points.

:angry-nono: Stop. 25th Hour is a great movie. There is no MESS about it. And you didn't even vote so you really shouldn't be criticizing anyone's choices.

Lol that's just my opinion take it easy. I will perhaps vote in the final round so maybe I'll explain it then.
