Where do you get your "Top 10 Movies" list from?

Post#1 » Thu Oct 14, 2010 9:39 am

I just have to ask, having seen Jonah Hex, the worst movie made in the last 10 years, jump to #1.

I was surprised to find it in the top 10 of anything that wasn't a joke last week, so to find it at #1 now is shocking.

Is there any chance that maybe the top 10 would take the actual content of the movie into account, instead of going by how many horny 12 years olds watched it because Whorey MrWhoreface (Megan Fox) is in it?

I'm usually reluctant to criticise any of the features of this site, because I really do love it... but this is just taking the piss.

PLUS... it would do a LOT of people a huge favour... those who say "hey look, this movie is #1, must be good" would be saved losing 90mins of their life they'll regret never being able to get back.

Voted where?

Show me the insane asylum where these people were asked to press random buttons and just happened to pick this movie as #1!

I'm guessing it's an IMDB top list?

I looked at that, and I can't vote... then the results say not one vote went to Jonah Hex.

That thread also said it's done by "most downloads", which is something I'm not sure about. Most d'loads where? Here? All over the internet? In 14yr old boys bedrooms?

We use a bag full of scrabble letters and randomly pick them in an attempt to spell movie titles. That's how we get our list.
