Title: Poll #1 - Best Films of 2016
Post by: Charles Longboat Jr. on February 11, 2018, 09:58:23 pm
Going up to ten films for this round. Post when you've voted (and feel free to share your picks).

My picks: Silence, Arrival, Manchester by the Sea, The Witch, La La Land, Paterson, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Green Room, and Gods of Egypt.

I was tempted to pick The Lobster Circle but I haven't seen it in full yet.

Arrival and Silence are definitely advancing to the next round, and rightfully so. Hell or High Water seems pretty safe too so far.

La La Land, Manchester, Hacksaw, and Nocturnal Animals need more momentum to stay in the game.

The Witch needs more love, guys. What gives?

I'm so glad that enough people have seen Silence for it to be a serious contender here. Best film I've seen in theaters in the past two years.

Such an emotionally draining film. So good.

Did you vote for Gods of Egypt by any chance? I'd be quite amused to see that make the final poll.

I did indeed... sadly, unless I return to my old ways I don't think it has the momentum to make the final round.

Locked the poll for now. Silence, Arrival, Hell or High Water, Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, The Nice Giuys, and Manchester by the Sea are safe. Going to create another tiebreaker poll for all the films that got three votes.

Can't believe Nine Lives got snubbed.

I know that most people here haven't seen Antibirth or Headshot, but the lack of votes for Everybody Wants Some is concerning.

Apparently Headshot got a limited release in the US last year, which I didn't know about until now.

I thought I saw Headshot on Netflix a while back. Might try to check out the Raid duo first.
