    The Great Films HTF Scorecard Vote

    To give credit where credit is due George Kaplan ran something similar to this a few years ago. In that poll I believe people were just voting for whether a film should be considered great or not. In this you'll be asked to give a score. When the dust settles I'll calculate the results using a weighted rank formula & we'll have an HTF Top 250

    Every day or couple of days I'll post up a batch of titles.

    Score them 0 - 10 with 10 being the highest vote possible.
    (No half scores such as 7.5 etc.)

    Smileys & [​IMG] [​IMG] are optional though they won't count as anything.

    What films will I use?
    IMDB top 250, the various AFI lists, S&S list & a few others.

    Participants can also pick up to 25 of their favorite films that you want included in this vote.
    PM your list to me at any time

    Participation

    This will be a relaxed poll. If you've been away a few days & missed out on a batch of votes you can still post up your scores at any time. Just indicate the batch #.

    Abstains - even if you haven't seen a portion of the films listed your votes on the films you have seen are still very important due to the formula I'll be using.

    Observation:
    I'm scoring based upon my evaluation of all movies that I've ever seen. Since the selected films are intended to represent some of the greatest films ever made, I don't expect to be scoring very many below a 5. I'm curious as to whether a range from 5 to 10 is granular enough to produce a meaningful weighted score, or if I should adjust what a score of 0 or 1 means.

    Dome,

    There's no limit. The more voters we have the better the results. You can join in at any time.

    Brad,

    Vote the way you think best. I wouldn't adjust your scoring methods though as it's pretty sound.

    Here's just a sample of the score range we'll have.

    8.00 - The Sweet Hereafter
    7.92 - Bride of Frankenstein
    7.87 - Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    7.85 - Deliverance
    7.77 - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
    7.62 - The Birds
    6.54 - JFK
    6.20 - The Man Who Would Be King
    6.09 - From Here to Eternity
    6.00 - O Brother, Where Art Thou?
    5.77 - A Beautiful Mind
    5.50 - A Man for All Seasons

    * Note this is just a plain average before I equate weighted rank. This will also change as we get more votes.

    Batch #2

    Good Will Hunting
    Red River
    Sleuth
    Clerks
    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
    Stand by Me
    The Quiet Man
    MASH
    E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
    The Godfather
    The Shawshank Redemption
    The Terminator
