Films of the 1950s: 1950 (2020 Edition)

Post by Petri » Mon Feb 03, 2020 2:14 pm

I think it is time to continue our journey. Let's take 1950s now, after that 18xx-1949 and 2010s sometime next year. We have a straight poll for 2010s (hosted by Holden) going on at the moment so there is no point to do yearly 2010s simultaneously (and I think most of the voters haven't have chance to see every 2019 (or 2018) movie from their "to see" -list yet.

If someone else wants to host this poll I'm very happy to step down but if not I can do it.

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 10 of each period will go on to the final top 100. The deadline is February 28. 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

1950 seems to be a weak year for me. I had only seen a few movies from that year, so I caught up with some stuff; however, there are certainly a lot of classics missing. I have seen All About Eve years ago, but my English wasn't very good then and I don't think I understood everything very well, so I kept it out. The lower half of my list has some picks I wouldn't put on an all-time list, but which are still quite good.

1. Sunset Blvd.
2. Un chant d'amour
3. Rashomon
4. Night and the City
5. Winchester '73
6. Gone to Earth
7. No Way Out
8. Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye
9. Guernica
10. Outrage
11. Rio Grande
12. The Ducksters
13. The Flowers of St. Francis
14. Woman on the Run
15. The Gunman
16. Quicksand
17. So Long at the Fair
18. Gerald McBoing-Boing
19. Cinderella
20. Cyrano de Bergerac
