New year, new update in the near future…

The last update was from March, and only 5 new lists, next to some altered ones, have arrived. But anyone who wants to rethink his old list can do that now. Some of the oldest members haven’t done this for many years, and we are still waiting for the one by Ennio … most likely the list to end all lists … who knows …

I’d be curious to see the updates to your personal list over the years, Stanton. As I assume you’ll just put them into the spreadsheet instead of on here.

Nope, I change my contribution only, when I post it here, just like everybody else.
But it is true, my actual list was posted quite a few years ago. Actually I wanted to change it after the “Hate Is My God” Blu has been released, only that hasn’t happened yet. It was announced (I think) in 2014, but it seem like it happen this year …

But there won’t be much changes since that list from 2012 (really so long ago?). It could now be something like this:

Once Upon a Time in the West
The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
The Mercenary
The Great Silence
My Name is Nobody
Cemetery Without Crosses
El Puro
A Fistful of Dollars
For a Few Dollars More
Companeros
Django
Boot Hill
The Last Killer
Duel in the Eclipse
Blindman
God Forgives…I Don’t
Duck, You Sucker! / A Fistful of Dynamite
Matalo!
Hate Is My God
A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die

Some more:

A Bullet for the General
Django Kill…If You Live, Shoot!
A Stranger in Town
The Big Gundown
Run Man, Run
A Bullet for Sandoval
Ace High
10 000 Dollars Blood Money
The Specialists
The Stranger Returns
They Call Me Hallelujah / Heads I Kill You, Tails You Die
John the Bastard
The Return of Ringo

Are there among these lists two list containing the same 20 films?

Hmm, maybe not, but of course I haven’t searched for such a congruence.

Why do you ask? List manipulation?

My impression is that people here agree more or less on ten films or so, then go on in entire different directions. If it is a lot of work, forget it. But if not, it would be kind of interesting to know if there is such a thing as one top 20 (ranking disregarded) supported by two (or more) people here, and if so, what is that list?

And Run Man Run now only 2 points above the drop.
With the Sartana set out there now I suspect RMR will drop out next year. Maybe time for everyone to revisit it and see if our opinions change.

But it is still above.

The Sartana set hasn’t done anything for the ranking so far, all 4 films are more or less at the same position as 2 years ago. The German release of A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die also did not push the film. It seems meanwhile the fans already know their Spags …

Requiem for Gringo is a movie that I believe has climbed up thanks to Wild Easts release.

Happy to see Black Jack and Vengeance getting more points.

I eagerly await the day Shoot the Living, Pray for the Dead overtakes GBU.

Yes, and no.
Requiem for a Gringo had already climbed from # 100 in 2010 to # 73 in 2013, and then to # 67 in 2017. And stays now at # 59.
But I don’t know when WE released the DVD.

It seems nobody votes for RMR anymore, and that in the last 6 years. The same 385 points already in Dez 2013 …

A look at the amount of points already tells this. GBU has about twice as much points as the 3 Spags ranked between # 5 and # 7, and RMR at # 20 only about 10 % of GBU.

At the moment I have no idea how to do this easily, unless I would compare every list with every other list.

I do think that Bluray availability has a slight influence on peoples top 20 lists, RMR will rise once it is ever available in HD. Mark my words :))
