lol you are sick i know maybe 3 actors together with their look. like stallone, schwarzeneger or hmm

other names i know just becuas i heard them somewhere like tom cruise or robert de niro or sth i wouldnt even recognize


also another question as i guess if you claim movie A is "better" than movie B and B is "better" than C it implies that A is "better" than C

so, the whole above implies you are able to produce a well-ordered set of movies from 1. (the "best") to let's say 1000. ("the worst")


the following, in turn, implies that there would be no difference in result (in particular if we concern a winner) if ppl posted releasing points given like that

1. Human Centipede 100
2. Scary Monster 80
3. Fictional Bulb 70
4. James Bond 007 3 65
....
50. Schauschrank 1


This might of course take a minor couple of minutes to make an order, but hell yeah, you would have the results right away! And also other interesting position of certain movies to discuss!! Svein!!! Go World Cup 3!!
<Pawq> at a gym you have only 3 options: 1. have your eyes closed, 2. stare at yourself, 3. stare at others, all of which are either super boring or disgusting

The other finalist, The Shawshank Redemption, got eliminated in Round 2 last time (where it lost to the eventual winner Forrest Gump).


The total number of voters were: 16

The tally of movies per decade after Round 6 is:

1920s: 0 movies
1930s: 0 movies
1940s: 0 movies
1950s: 0 movies
1960s: 0 movies
1970s: 0 movies
1980s: 0 movies

Maybe hold a world cup for every 5 year period? Movies between 2012 - 2017 next? I have some movies to nominate already; The Revenent, Room, Boyhood, Birdman, The Place Beyond The Pines, Whiplash and more. Would be coal to battle these out against one another :)

Hm well, the prev one was all movies in history up to 2012, while the one before that was 00's movies only. So maybe 10's would be better then.

It will make more sense to hold a "best of 10's" world cup after 2019 has passed so I will probably do that some time in 2020. So not much point in doing that now.

But how about this instead, for something completely different: Best <insert genre here> Movie World Cup? For instance best Animation, or best Comedy, or Action etc. Some might be difficult to decide on what movies should be eligible, Animation probably easiest :)
(although there would be some movies where one could argue either way, like Roger Rabbit or perhaps the Zemeckis motion-capture movies).
