To be fair that is a really good selection, and there is only one film in the shortlist that falls into the you have got to be kidding category.
As it is rude to single it out specifically, I'll just mention the premise of it instead:
"Oxford graduate sleeps around and ends up banished to a Greek island raising her child alone, struggling to run a crappy motel while the fathers achieve their ambitions oblivious to it all until they are welcomed with open arms by adult child having put in none of the graft. Only said graduate dies about 20 years later at the age of circa 50/55!"
Very female empowerment, not. Still miles better than that utter abomination of a musical film called The Greatest Showman which makes Showgirls seem like The 39 Steps; and its factual inaccuracies make Bohemian Rhapsody seem like the most accurate Queen documentary ever in comparison.
Hummm, a clear leader and a couple of others in 2nd and 3rd ahead of the pack, but with 8 more sets of votes to come in, I guess there could be some changes, have to wait and see, will also check how many films are still to get off the mark! 4 still on nul points...
All the votes are in, so I may reveal the order at some point over the weekend, feel free to join me and speculate now as to what you think will win... Thank you to everyone that voted, and you still can before the weekend if you're reading this.
There must be at least Seven films with a chance of getting the top spot, and they're a Magnificent Seven. People can hold their opinions quite strongly, so mods will have to be careful that 12 Angry Men don't become a Fight Club as we count down The Usual Suspects.
Those whose films don't get points may be Les Miserables, but their hopes will Die Hard while those who have The Prestige of top spot may want a Memento of the occasion.
All in all, the Kind Hearts and Coronets who run this may need to deploy Robocop to ensure that a Towering Inferno of complaints doesn't build up across the Metropolis of Haven - otherwise there'll be calls for another poll, and we'll all say Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!
