Poll #1 - Best Films of 2017
« on: February 19, 2018, 02:05:17 pm »
Going with 8 films again due to the smaller amount of options. Threw in the Oasis's favorite short film in for extra measure.

Went with Blade Runner, Colossal, Dunkirk, Phantom Thread, Get Out, Lady Bird, Lady Macbeth, and Ten. I figure Three Billboards will still get enough votes to advance and if necessary I'll ditch Ten to help it get there.

Blade Runner 2049, The Disaster Artist, Logan, mother!, Phantom Thread, The Shape of Water, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Ten

Surprised no one nominated Call Me by Your Name.  That would've been a film I picked if it were on there.
Goodbye!

I get why a lot of people love it but I had difficulty connecting to it. I get the intent behind the pacing being as slow as it was but for me its emotional viscerality only really began in the third act. Solid film overall though, and sure to be a fearsome competitor for the various awards it's up for at the Kashmir Awards.

Locked the poll. Everything with 3 votes or more advances, including Ten. I think 11 to 12 finalists is suitable enough.
