That's right! From the host who brought you Ultimate AlbumJustice and Ultimate Popstars 2019 comes my first non-music "ultimate" rate. Not the forum's first, remember Ultimate GameJustice? Remember @Animalia? *sobs*
So, I've been wanting to do something like this for a while now, but just haven't found a good chunk of time set aside for it. My next music rate isn't until 2021 and that's pretty much ready to go at this point, so now I've decided to surprise y'all with it.
How do these work? It's very very simple. You just do a lot of thinking about what your 20 favorite movies of all-time are. Okay, that's the hard part. You also need to rank them before sending them to me. That's the other hard part. Please list them in order of ranking from #1 (being your 1st favorite) to #20 (being your 20th favorite) -- I will assign your #1 movie 20 points and your #20 movies gets 1 point (and everything in between of course). Points will determine the rankings, with ties being broken by which movies got more voters.
You don't have to provide any commentary, but if you do I ask that it be something short and sweet like what you'd see on the front of a movie poster. You know, those "two thumbs up, way up!" stuff on see on the sides of a movie poster/DVD cover to show the great reviews a film got, trying to entice new viewers. If you want to go with a long speech about your #1 movie, go for it. I won't go out of my way to police this, but try not swamp me with a lot of words to sort through. I appreciate that because these countdowns are a long process as it is!
You can obviously send in any kind of movies that you'd like to, but no TV shows (that will be another countdown) and obviously nothing pornographic because I don't want to get banned!
Be as specific as you can with movie titles. For example Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone not just 'the Sorcerer's Stone' -- in this case I of course know what all Harry Potter movies are and that both of these votes are for the same movie but if it was another film series or something else where you could see slightly different titles -- I may not know and the alphabetized spreadsheet certainly won't. Also use the year to specify remakes please! Basically make it so I cannot get it wrong the first time and your picks get revealed incorrectly -- no one wants that!
I will give you the basic Wikipedia data to go along with each movie and probably post the early stuff (that got one voter) in big batches to keep things moving because I don't want to be at for like six months!
Feel free to post all the FYC's you want to in the thread and have fun!
Please PM your votes to me by let's say October 30th.
