Top 50 Most Requested Rifftrax of 2013
« on: February 04, 2013, 06:20:15 PM »
Here's how it works!

Participants were asked to send  a list of your 25 movies they wanted to see a Rifftrax for. 24 ballots were received, and the movies were ranked on a point system allowing 25 points for a #1 choice, 24 for a #2, and all the way down to 1 point for #25. The points were added up, and what follows are the selections.

Tiebreakers work like such: If two movies have equal pointage, the movie that appeared on the most lists ranks higher. If those movies appeared on the same amount of lists, then the film ranked higher on the individual list got the higher spot. A movie that was someone's #4 beats another person's #6, for example. And then if titles  were tied, a random choice was made.

Please don't post your lists until the entire list is posted.
Please do complain/kick yourself/pontificate as much as you want, because that's the point!

The Top 50 (55 really) Movies You Want Rifftrax to Riff Countdown 2013 begins now. Let your conversations begin.

Oh, I guess that I'll stick the completed list here as well when the list ends, since I forgot to add a post for it.
