I've never seen either Mulholland Drive nor Moulin Rouge! and of the other three I'd rank them:

1. Gone Girl
2. Scream
3. Fellowship of the Ring

I'd rank them

1. Fellowship of the Ring
2. Gone Girl
3. Mulholland Drive
4. Moulin Rouge
5. Scream

I love Gone Girl and Mulholland Drive despite not voting for either. The latter was in my longlist and the only reason the former wasn't was because I forgot about it when compiling it dd. It's cool there ended up being a wide variety of genres in the top 5.

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect Mulholland Drive to do so well.

Let me get my Betty on and do some sleuthing about everyone here's other movie choices. I imagine the taste to be exquisite.

To make it easier, @DJHazey at the end would you be able to post everyone's top 20 lists? I would love to be able to uncover films from similar movie lovers that might have flown under my radar.

I might get banned for this but I don't like Moulin Rouge. I love musicals and Nicole Kidman so I thought I would love it but it just didn't connect for some reason. I have seen Scream and I liked it despite not being a horror fan. I'm happy that Gone Girl made it this far.
Never seen the other 2 but I've been meaning to watch Mulholland Drive for years.

I don't have them saved in an easy to post format unfortunately, the people you would want to know of would need to post their Top 20.

I chose not to do reveals like a song contest with running reveals of everyone's ballot.

If Mulholland Drive was only 20 points away from the win - I am gonna report @OspreyQueen for not voting dddd
 
@No hay banda already wrote beautifully about Mulholland Drive, but I still have to chime in with everyone else about how happy and amazed I am that it actually made the Top 3! After some other posters mentioned it early on in the thread I felt quite secure that it wouldn't be an early out, but this is even better.

Happy to see that I voted for all of the Top 3. At the same time, I've seen neither Moulin Rouge nor Gone Girl. In the case of Moulin Rouge...I don't really feel interested in sitting through Karaoke versions of a couple of nice songs, as much as I like Ewan McGregor. Gone Girl...no reason actually. I should finally watch it.
 
Whatever ends up winning, what we’re not going to do is bag on one of the most influential horror films ever just because it doesn’t align with your personal taste.

Scream resuscitated an ailing genre and paved the way for a level of post modernism and self rexflexivity not just in the horror genre but in cinema as a whole. It’s a modern classic and deserves to be respected as such, regardless of whether you like it or not.

Also the rate being so horror heavy shouldn’t be a surprise when it won the poll by a huge margin at the top of this very thread.

Back to you in the studio, Kenny.
