OK - after Valley's Top 20 poll, I thought I'd use the interest generated, and start some more polls.....

This one is a poll for the following specific genres:

  • Action
  • Adventure
  • Animation
  • Comedy
  • Drama
  • Family
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Musical
  • Romance
  • Sci Fi
  • Sport
  • Thriller
  • War
  • Western


RULES:

1. For each genre you wish to vote for, send a [/i]separate[i] email to rewindmoviepoll@gmail.com, with the SUBJECT LINE being the genre of your list. This is important, so that I can make sure the lists are properly handled.
2. In the email, list your TOP 5 (FIVE) movies from that genre.
3. To qualify, a movie should be released in the years 1980-1989, and the genre selected MUST be listed against that movie on the IMDB. Please check this before voting, as anything that isn't in the right genre list will be disallowed.
4. Closing date for the polls will be Midnight, April 3, 2011. That gives just over two weeks, which should give everyone plenty of time to vote.
5. The scoring is simple - 5 points for a first place vote, down to one point for a fifth place vote. In the event of a tie, the movie with the most individual votes wins, then most first places, etc.
6. Once the polls close, I'll try to get the results up soon as I can.

Feel free to discuss genres on this thread, but please do not post your lists here before the results are posted as a) they won't count, and b) you'll spoil the poll.

OK.... looking forward to your votes!

Just edited the rules slightly, to make clear that I need a separate email for each genre.

I know that this might seem like a pain in the butt, but I've set up the email process to sort the different genres for me, and it only works if the email subject is as requested.

I'll try to fix any that don't work though...

Paul, what if the movie is two different genres?

I am just looking at a movie (I won't say which one) and it is classifed on IMDb as Action and Sci-Fi.

I know that this comment is hard to get by, but IMDb have no idea how to classify movies properly. For example there are some obvious fantasy movies that are not classified as fantasy but are classified as, action, adventure, drama. I understand that a movie can fall under may categories, but at least they could put, action, adventure, drama, fantasy.

And do we Email them from our own email adresses or is there a way to email them from the board?

If the movie is two different genres on IMDB, then it can be voted for in each genre. You could vote for it more than once if you wanted to. However, if the IMDB do not classify a movie in a particular genre, then it can't go into that pot. Whether they are right or wrong. It gives us an independent classification, which will help overall.

And you'll need to mail them from your address direct. It won't be used for anything else, and as I have access to them as an admin anyway, I'm subject to the same data protection controls as the main site.

so what about something like the princess Bride - fantasy, advernture, action, comedy, family - its listed as family, adventure and comedy with imdb??

Or

Should we leave it up to the intelligence of the rewinders to put the movies into the most suitable catagory??

Princess Bride is listed as Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy, Romance on IMDB. It can go in any or all of those.

The reason I'm not suggesting that people just pick the category they want is that people view movies differently. What is a horror to one person may be an action movie to anpother, a drama to a third, etc. Having a readily available external list against each movie is the best way to make sure that everyone starts at the same point, and I'd be using it as reference against each movie anyway.

Additional : You forget that I know most of you - intelligence don't always appear in the mix... [Smile]

I think it would be worth mentioning for people not familiar with IMDb, is that up the top of the page to the right of the movie picture will appear the certain genres, but be sure to look further down the page under Genres: where it usually list more genres than it does at the top of the page.

Hey Billie Jean..

The correct email address for the GENRE WARS poll is:

rewindmoviepoll@gmail.com

The gmail goes to Paul who is tabulating the GENRE WARS .. the hotmail sends it to me who handled the Rewind movie poll top 20. If I receive any by mistake..I will definitely forward to the proper email.

Good question

Who's brain is going into overdrive/anxiety mode trying to formulate this list. It is very tricky if you really want to try your hardest to submit your best list. I am maybe around the half way mark.

I think we also need to do an ALL TIME GENRE WARS ALSO. Mainly cos the best westerns are from the 60s and 70s.

I'm finding this a tad complex. Not only do half the categories step on each others toes, but some of them ('family') mean nothing at all to me (I know what a family film is, but it covers soooo many types). And really, 'action' and 'adventure'? Ok, I understand splitting them... but it hurts man.

Also - musicals; there were so few musicals released in the 80's that you can't really have a 'top 5', just a '5' because the competition is so thin. Same goes for westerns.

Don't get mad and stuff... I don't want my nipples to disappear like in that other thread... I'm just sayin'.

Part one of the plan is working - it's making you all think about what movies you like and what they actually say....
