There's only two movies there I would put in my top 40. So I only cast 2 votes. :sorry:

The polls allow you to change your votes if you like. The idea is to select which five movies are your favorites among the listed movies, not which movies are on your personal top list.

I don't like the way you've broken up the polls. I would cast 8 votes for titles in poll #1 and only 2 for #2.

Similar to my concern. Alas, he has little choice. It's a limitation of the polling feature.
He could break them up differently, but he has to break them up. And it's gonna disappoint someone.

I had to reach a bit to fill it.

And coincidentally a few weeks ago I tried to watch Seven Samauri and I couldn't get through it. It was terrible.

I understand. That was one of my concerns when I split the polls:

I thought of different ways, like splitting them alphabetically, splitting them with respect to release year, but the problem would still remain: the result of the two polls can't be directly compared, since the movie selections are different. Splitting them into genres at least allows members to vote within genres.

I want to vote for six or seven.

Ah I know. I have taken part in selection committees, various roles. First reading it was not too difficult to eliminate 10%. Maybe another 5 or 10% outstanding. But all the rest pretty good, well fairly good.Read more carefully the next day. and may be the next. In a night or two they would begin to sediment. Some faster than others. I'll wait a couple of days.
