Last year's Top 100 DVD census ( http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...threadid=32936 )was a success and many HTF members expressed interest in conducting it again this year. Now that all of the big releases of 2002 have come out and you've hopefully had time to check out those that interest you, I'm sure the Top 100 DVD results list will look very different this year. GUIDELINES: Select the 10 DVD releases that you consider to be best overall, ranked in descending order of quality. "Best" is determined by two criteria: MOVIE QUALITY and DVD QUALITY. It is meant to incorporate the DVD presentation of the film, but it's not entirely about the extras and DVD layout. Take both factors into consideration when making your selections. DVD quality includes audio/video quality plus the quality of extra features. Some other guidelines: You are voting on DVD releases, which means that The Godfather Collection is ONE vote, Toy Story & Toy Story 2: The Ultimate Toy Box is ONE vote, The Back to the Future Trilogy is ONE vote, etc. And please be specific as to what release you are selecting. "Widescreen" version isn't necessary, but if you're voting for something like Lord of the Rings, please specify 2-Disc Theatrical or Extended Edition. I'm not really sure how to treat similar releases, such as separate DD and DTS versions (which just about never happens anymore) or something like the 4-Disc vs. 5-Disc LOTR releases and Spider-man 2-Disc vs. Collector's Set (in which the difference is mostly just physical extras). Most likely I'll just count them together, and list the more basic one with more votes with a note. In some instances, though, there might be need for separate counts (I'm thinking of something like E.T. 2-Disc vs. 3-Disc). Nonetheless, vote for what you want, I'll count them as they're voted, and I'll decide what makes the most sense once everything is tallied. Please only vote once. I'll be posting this on several Internet DVD forums as I did last year, since the idea is to make this a definitive list that the people decide. If you visit those other boards, please DO NOT vote on more than one forum. Scoring is simple enough. Your 1st choice gets 10 points, 2nd choice gets 9, 3rd gets 8, and so on...onto your 10th pick, which gets 1 point. If your list includes a tie, the middle score will be awarded to both titles. For example, if you pick Ghost and Ghost Dad as tied for #1, each will receive 9.5 points. If you don't indicate the order of your list, I'll just assume they are in the order that you posted, from top to bottom (and left to right). The resulting list will be the Top 100 DVDs based on points earned, and I may include a list of some DVDs that just missed the cut. Voting will run until January 15 and the results site should be up by the end of January. If you'd like to help me out by counting votes, please drop me an e-mail. With hundreds and hundreds of votes, it's awfully time-consuming for me to count them all myself. I will be maintaining a spreadsheet with the data. Oh and finally, if you'd like, you can include comments about why you picked what you did, which I would use on the results website. The 2001 Poll results can be viewed here: http://www.angelfire.com/dc/top100dvd/ NOTE: If a moderator could pin this to the top of the Software forum for the two weeks of voting as a 'sticky' thread, I'd be most appreciative. Last year, I left this in the Polls forum and unfortunately, HTF member response was the smallest of all the Internet DVD forums, since many HTF members stick to the Software forum only. The more representative this list is of DVD enthusiasts, the better is. The more votes, the better. Thanks!
