Re: Oscar Contest 2020

If you've already entered, be sure to check out the results page. I've gone ahead and entered preliminary data for the consensus picks in each category. The last row will show how many of your picks match what the majority of other AV players said. Obviously that consensus may change as more players...

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

Well, it’s not "faithful", is it? It completely ignores that Mike and Sully met in fourth grade (or whenever it was). If you’re writing a prequel, at least stick, refer or make a note of the "facts" that came before. I did say it "fits almost perfectly", and that was why I added the caveat. But rea...

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

First off, Monsters Inc was my favorite movie of 2000-2009. So I'm predisposed to like the sequel! Second of all, give it another try when you can.

Re: Oscar Contest 2020

Friday is the last day to enter! Due to some behind the scenes issues, we released this later than usual so ballots are a little down from previous years. So be sure to get yours in and pass the link around!

Re: Best of the 2010s Poll

Last day to get your vote in is this Friday! My tastes are more in the mainstream, so with over 100 movies to pick from the indie/foreign/non-major studios I liked were just outside my top ten. Two I really wanted to work in there but just couldn't find the space were The Book Of Life and Kubo and ...

Re: Oscar Contest 2020

I know how you did it! ;) Last year was the first year I used that format. I meant to obscure the link this year while testing but apparently never got around to it. I use lots of sample data when testing things out so you're lucky I noticed your entry before I deleted all that and set this live! Bu...
