The basic idea behind this is that each week you will be given the chance to vote on a series of between 10 and 15 movies from each year of the millennium so far, that's 16 years in total. The reason for no set number of films is because of the way the list is compiled:

1) The top 10 grossing movies of the year, worldwide
2) The winners of Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress at that years Oscar ceremony.

It doesn't always happen, but that means we could have 15 films, but obviously the winners might already be in the top 10, or have won multiple (or all) of the above, so the list will be smaller. For example in 2000, Gladiator was second highest grossing, but also won Best Picture and Actor.

Anyway, onto the important stuff. You will vote using the traditional Buzzfestivalen/Melodisfestivalen system, which is as follows:

12 - your favourite movie
10 - your second favourite, and so on
08
06
04
02

The films in contention this week are as follows:

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
Monsters, Inc.
Shrek
Ocean's Eleven
Pearl Harbour
The Mummy Returns
Jurassic Park III
Planet Of The Apes
Hannibal
A Beautiful Mind
Training Day
Monster's Ball
Iris

You have until MAY 6TH, 2015 AT 23:59PM to cast your votes via PM TO ME, JOHNKM. Please feel free to discuss the films in this thread, and if you haven't seen any now might be a good time to fill in the gaps in your film knowledge.

Really loving this idea actually. Have to admit I haven't seen a good few on that list though.

OK, I've actually seen multiple films on the list this week. laugh.gif So I can submit votes very shortly. biggrin.gif

And UV wut? It would be hard to rank but I don't think any of the Harry Potter movies are worse than 8/10.

I'm with UV on the Potter films. They only get bearable by Prisoner of Azkhaban.

08 Hannibal
06 The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring
04 A Beautiful Mind
02 Jurassic Park III

Quite a mediocre bunch of movies representing 2001 thou that wasn't a very strong year with blockbusters anyways. The Others narrowly missed $100m in the US but was better than any of the $100+m movies.

I don't get the hate for the first couple HP films! Yeah, they get a hell of a lot better/more darker as the franchise goes on ('Prisoner of Azkaban' is my personal fave though <3), but they're still brilliant fun!

Oh you really should change that. Heist movie mixed with smart comedy. All-Star cast like none other (George Clooney, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, etc.) Oh and there are three of them so three times the fun.

Yay, I've been wanting to join this one (and help Gladiator in the last round) but I hadn't seen enough films on that list and I HAVE on here.

Will be very much supporting Lord Of The Rings though, naturally.

I've only seen 4 of them but it is such a weird franchise for me as I have so many different opinions
Chamber of secrets is amazing, goblet of fire is quite good, prisoner of azkaban is awful and the 1st one I find so boring and terrible

The funny thing is my Mom is the biggest fan of the movies you will ever see. Literally, if it ever comes on TV she stops everything she does to watch it. After years and years of twisting my arm I finally watched all of them on DVD less than a year ago and I was blown away.

So it was a bit of a whitewash this time for the top 4, but between those it was pretty close with the winner changing several times. For the first half of voting Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings were sailing through, but the second half brought a raft of 12/10 pairing for Shrek and Monster's Inc. which sees them both comfortably make the final in the end. They had a combined 244 points in the end.

Coming in a respectable 5th, albeit miles away from the points we have Hannibal, the sequel to the much loved The Silence Of The Lambs, which couldn't quite match the cultural or awards draw of the original.

The rest you can see for yourself, poor Leonardo the only fan of Training Day being the most interesting thing about the rest of the results.
