I will take a page from the Actors Game thread and make a new game thread celebrating the best films of 2012 with the general rules over there carrying over here. I will, however, make a few tweaks to said rules so that we can include more films. They are the following:
1. As usual, all films start at 10 points. You are permitted 2 upvotes and 2 downvotes per day (the daily schedule will follow Rocky Mountain Standard Time); you can choose to up or downvote 2 different films one point each or one film 2 points.
2. If a film hits 0 points, it's out of the game and will enter the worst of the year list. If they hit 20 points, then they are moved into the best of list. The game will end once the The Academy Award for Best Picture is awarded.
3. The starting number will be 6 films, and will consist of films that are good, bad, mediocre, or otherwise have polarizing receptions from both sides. The next player to vote can replace a film with 0 or 20 points with a film of their own choosing.
4. Eligible selections would either have to be given wide theatrical releases in the United States, or have debuted in another country within the fiscal year. Festival Selections are prohibited if they do not follow the above criteria, and theatrical reissues like Titanic and Finding Nemo are prohibited.
5. The selections in general are to be alphabetized, numerals first. Titles starting with 'the' do not count, and the first letter of the next word is to be considered instead.
So with that said, here's my starting contenders of films:
The Avengers - 10
The Dark Knight Rises - 10
The Hunger Games - 10
Moonrise Kingdom - 10
Prometheus - 10
That's My Boy - 10
