Pf, I received your message and I’m sorry to respond to it here, but the site wont allow me to get back into my private messages at the moment. My main concern is the way the bottom ten is ranked, with #1 getting only 1 point. Is this an error? If not, I want the film at the top of my bottom list to get the full 10 pts, and so on.
Thanks Pf. And forget about the Tabu edit. I’d highly recommend that film btw.

Just put your list in order from worst to least bad with #1 being the worst and ol’ Pacinofan will figure out the points.February 14, 2013 at 3:05 pm #90907
Please mark your lists as Top Ten and Bottom Ten. It is usually obvious but I think it is best to keep everything crystal clear.
Thank you.February 15, 2013 at 1:06 pm #90908

I am going to have to grade the Bottom Ten List the same way the Top Ten is graded.
So they will receive points as follows…
1 (Worst Film)- 10
And So On
I realized if I used a system where the bottom ten was based on the lowest points a film would likely lose due to few people seeing it rather than because it was the most disliked.
Also very few people are giving bottom ten lists. If I do not receive a decent number of them I may just post the top ten.February 20, 2013 at 1:30 pm #90912
Keep those Top 10 and Bottom 10 Lists coming in!February 20, 2013 at 1:49 pm #90913

Your Top Ten and Bottom Ten Lists are due by midnight on Saturaday. Meaning 1 minute after 11:59PM, Friday. I do not have very many so I am hoping for a lot of last minute posters so I have some kind of representative sample. If you only want to post a Top or Bottom List rather than both that is fine. You can post them here or send me a private message.February 21, 2013 at 12:32 pm #90917
- Zero Dark Thirty
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower
- The Dark Knight Rises
- Beasts of the Southern Wild
- 21 Jump Street
- Moonrise Kingdom
- Silver Linings Playbook
- Les Misérables
- The Hunger Games
February 21, 2013 at 12:54 pm #90918
- Les Misérables and The Hunger Games would not fare as well on a ten-point scale as many other films that I saw, like The Sessions and The Impossible, but I feel more passionate about the parts that I liked about those films.
- I go out of my way to only watch good films, so I cannot make a worst list, although Magic Mike would easily “top” one and I thought that The Deep Blue Sea was super boring. Alex Cross was laughably bad.
- I saw thirty-eight 2012 titles (thirty-four to completion) and I would say successfully saw every North American live-action English-language film with any critical acclaim except for Cloud Atlas, Compliance, Cosmopolis, End of Watch, The Grey, Killer Joe, Killing Them Softly, Middle of Nowhere, Safety Not Guaranteed, Seven Psychopaths, Smashed and Take This Waltz and it is very possible that none of those would have made my top ten anyway.
It is hard to make a Bottom Ten List since I rarely go out of my way to see something bad but as I am asking others to do it I will do my best. This is my bottom ten but I understand but I know there are probably much worse films.
2) The Babymakers
3) Silent House
4) Joyful Noise
5) Dark Shadows
6) Pirahna 3DD
7) Holy Motors (Yeah, I know many loved but I thought it was a load of pretentious nonsense.)
8) Trouble with the Curve
9) Les Miserables
