OSM's TOP 50 Movies Contest – Voting


  • Big hello to all OSM players and specially to those who appreciate and love watching movies. For those of you I have a treat. :D

    In discussion with moderators and in order to kickstart quality discussion on this lovely new OSM forum I decided to do a little forum game where we will choose the best and most popular Movies by the choice of OSM users.

    So how will it work? Basically I would like you to post here in this topic the list of your favourite top 10 movies that you watched and to which you would like to give your votes. Also it would be good if you could tell a sentence or two about some of them and why they are in your top 10 (dont do it for all, lets say you do it only for your top 3 – please try to keep your posts in a reasonable size of text in order to avoid any potential overload.). The movie you put on 1st place will get 10 points, movie you put on 2nd place will get 9 points... and movie you put on 10th place will get 1 point. Please try to get the official names of the movies from the IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/) so that I can easily find them .

    The voting period will last until the next Saturday (November 19th). After that, on Sunday, I will check once again If I have processed all the votes and allocated them to the movies. Then on Monday, if we got enough people to vote here we will close this topic and start a new one called „OSM's TOP 50 Movies Contest – The Countdown“.
    Why „The Countdown“? Well because I wont reveal all the movies at once, we will start from the numbers 50 – 45 and I will then every day post 5 new movies from the list until we get to the final winner – the number 1 movie decided by the OSM users :D

    I hope that you find this idea interesting and that we will manage to collect enough people participating in this and that we will make a quality list so that people who like to watch movies and dont know what to watch on certain day will be able to look at this list and pick something from it if they havent seen it already.

    P.S. If you have any questions or you'd like some extra info feel free to ask here or you can send me a PM. Also feel free to comment on each others lists.

    LET THE GAMES BEGIN! :dancer:

    @ruby2003

    Oh I know the feeling girl. :laughing: I 'm facing the same problem Megan. It seems so dam hard for me to choose the top 10 list when I've watched and loved so many movies and from all sorts of genres. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


  • @SUPERNOVA-8 @ruby2003 You are welcome girls, Im kinda big movie addict so this is not a hard thing for me, its a pleasure to do it. I just hope everyone will love the topic and that we will have big response to this. The bigger response it is the better list will be :)

    @WrinkledPaulsack Everyone's input is welcome and appreciated, dont worry. And besides, you have put all quality movies on your list ;) "Remember remember the 5th of November..." :dagger:

    Thank you everyone else for your lists, keep them coming ;)


  • @Majstor-Matt Thanks Matt (if you don't mind me calling you that). There was just something poetic about an eccentric masked man who fought the establishment. Then a normal girl (Natalie Portman) who saw the man behind the mask.

    I was really wanting to add a film called The Acid House, but again, it's Scottish drug culture. It's a very strange watch but one you can't take your eyes off. Didn't add it because most won't be able to understand the accents!


  • Thanks for this topic, Matija, I think it really is a good idea! This is my list:

    1. The Godfather (1972) - The story is just epic and any of the three films deserves to be here. Marlon Brando at his best!
    2. A Clockwork Orange (1971) - A masterpiece, although I found a bit disturbing when I first watched it as a little kid.
    3. Vertigo (1958) - I believe Hitchcock should be in this list and this is my favourite film by him.
    4. Scarface (1983)
    5. Blade Runner (1982)
    6. The Lion King (1994)
    7. The Shining (1980)
    8. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
    9. The Skin I Live In (2011)
    10. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

    1. The Godfather
    2. Kill Bill 2
    3. Pulp Fiction
    4. Casino
    5. The Dark Knight
    6. Deadpool
    7. Schindler's List
    8. The Godfather 2
    9. Reservoir Dogs
    10. Shutter Island
