    Justice for the little movie! The 2017 edition

    Oscars have passed and a new season commences. What could be a better moment to come back to our beloved Justice for the little movie! series? Taking in account out "5 years of perspective rule", we are set to visit 2017. But let's remember what these series are about:

    1. It is not about voting for little movies, but about movies competing in equality.
    2. Be honest! For Phase 1 vote for your actual Top 5 and for Phase 2 vote for your actual favorite 10 (from our Master List). Be true also about which movies have you seen and which movies you haven't.
    3. Enjoy and discover new movies!

    Remember that this is an international list, what means that we go by the first international public screening (the so called imdb date).

    Everything keeps being the same than in previous editions (but it has been a while, so let's remember it).
    To get in the list a movie needs both of these:
    1. To have been seen by a minimum of the 5% of the voters in Phase 2.
    2. To have been seen by a minimum of 3 voters in Phase 2.
    3. The list will be ranked by their relative number of votes, that means number of votes / number of viewers.
    4. Movies that make the list but less of 10% of voters have watched them or they have only 1 vote will be also ranked, but they will be announced with an asterisk (*), so users will know that they are special cases (some people will give them more attention, some people will skip them).

    Again, this list is made in two phases:


    - Each user writes in a post their 5 favorite movies from 2017 (we'll use the imdb date as an indicator of the year of the movie).
    - You should only name the movies that have not been mentioned before. For example, if three of my Top 5 movies from 2017 have been already mentioned, I would write the title of the other 2 and the note "my other 3 favorite movies have already been mentioned" or something like that.
    - Please, include the director's name (if possible, in the same format that appears in the Master List in the second post of this thread).
    - Please, don't post your favorites ranked. Use alphabetical order!. This will work better if the rest of people don't know in advance about which movies have more passion behind.
    - I'll be updating the second post of this thread with the Master list of all movies already mentioned, so you don't have to check all the posts to know which movies have been already mentioned (I'll try to do it once a day or more).
    - Updates of your Phase 1 lists ARE NOT ALLOWED (the methodology here explained avoids it, because a change in your list could affect the lists of every other user).
    - Some minutes (if there isn't any unexpected problem) after the deadline I'll do the last update of the Master list and the Phase 2 will start.

    Phase 2 OPEN until April 12th at 8PM CET.

    - Each user PM me the whole Master list (please don't change its order) and selects their favorite 10 movies (not less, not more). They write a "*" symbol before the title of that movie.[/B]

    - Behind each title the user writes "y" if they have seen that movie or "n" if they haven't seen it.

    - Example:

    24 Frames (Abbas Kiarostami) n
    * The Babysitter (McG) y
    Barbara (Mathieu Amalric) y
    * Beast (Michael Pearce) y
    Before We Vanish (Kiyoshi Kurosawa) n

    This user has seen The Babysitter, Barbara and Beast, but they have not seen 24 Frames nor Before We Vanish. In addition, this user has The Babysitter and Beast in their Top 10 list from the movies in the Master List.

    - After the deadline I will compute the results and announce our list. My idea is to list every movie from the Master list which had been seen by a minimum of the 5% of the users voting (if that number is lower than 3 users, it will become automatically a minimum of 3 users).

    - About the placement in the list: The order will be done taken in account the percentage of viewers of the movie who have included it in their Top 10 list. This is what we're calculating. For example: "The 26% of the AWers who have seen this movie had it in their Top 10". The ones with the biggest percentage will have the Top placements in the list, Nothing else will be taken in account (if at least a 5% of the voters have SEEN that movie).

    - About the ties: Only in the case of an exact tie (26,590001% vs 26,590002 is not a tie) I'll pay attention to the number of viewers and in that case I'll position the movie with more viewers above the one with less viewers. Even if mathematically, it is the same result in percentage, the movie with more viewers is more stable. For example if 2 movies have a 25% but one movie has 4 viewers and the other one has 8 viewers, the second one would be less affected if somebody else sees the movie and doesn't like it. My idea is not to announce this percentages or the number of people who have seen each movie, just the order of the movies. I think that, if people knows that this number will be kept private, there will be more sincerity in the ballots.

    - About the announcement: Movies that make the list but have only one vote or less than 10% of the users have seen them, will be announced with an asterisk (*) next to their title to remark the especial situation of such movie.

    But please, the golden rule: Be honest. This is an experiment to know the truth. Not strategic voting, just post your actual Top 5 in Phase 1 and your favorite 10 (from the Master list) in Phase 2. And be equally honest about the movies you have seen and the movies you have not.

    And please, try to vote the way I have asked, including that "*" before the movies you want to vote and including BOTH "y" and "n" after the titles you have seen or not. I know some of this feels redundant, but it helps me A LOT and saves me A LOT of time. Thank you in advance.

    Please, feel free to ask as many questions as you want. And welcome back to Justice for the little movie!.
