Top 25: Discussion of Nominated Films on Memory


Recommended Posts

 

That's a great idea--but the survey had no way of identifying whether I'd seen a film or not.  There was no "N/A"--which caused me to vote "3" for films I hadn't seen, which should end up as a "neutral" value in the summation.

 

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if a lot of people voted like this, then we need to redo the voting. Or, if everyone but me voted like this, then I need to redo my ballot. I didn't vote at all for films I haven't seen, gave 5s to the "musts," 4s to the "yes, please," 3s to the "I'd be fine with this one," and so on.

 

 

I voted like Darren.

I voted like Darren.

As did I.

Oops.  (On a research quality note, I'd argue a survey should always have a "N/A" to prevent respondent confusion.). 

 

Throw my votes out please.

 

I agree on that note, Buckeye. But surely you can be permitted to correct your votes so that they will remain applicable...

"...the vivid crossing of borders between film and theology may save the film from the banality of cinema and festival business, and it may also save the church from the deep sleep of the habitual and the always known."

Yeah, I think Buckeye should be able to revote, assuming he can do so quickly and the revote won't throw a big wrench into the process.

I'm almost embarrassed to have someone see all my blank lines...it would be easier to have someone just tag an extra 5 on Wreck it Ralph for me...

 

Just kidding.  I probably won't have a chance to pop back in here today, and am totally confident that the awesome participant base here will produce a list I'll be proud of even though I'm not voting on it.

Me too.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

Ooops, Ryan, you're right.  I misread Jeff's inline quotes as meaning all of these voters had voted the way Buckeye had voted.  My bad.  Post deleted.  Don't want to be the one adding to any confusion.
