I thought about doing more... what do you think about the Top 3?  Not too little, not too many.

You do have a point. It will be a little more difficult for a voter if there are more choices (although I dont think it will get 35 entries), I just believe it would be better for us, the poll board members.

It's nice that you two are ... asking the poll creator to handle a greater load of work and keep on pushing this burden over and over. You should respect his choice. If he chooses it... then good.

BTW, I love how you chose Rocky... a movie doesn't have to be straight up Nora Ephron to be romantic!  Sometimes the best love stories are in movies where the romance isn't the "selling point."
