Three Colors: Red. If Salaam Bombay was on here, my two favorite films would be on this list. 'Great list of great films. I was thinking maybe it'd attract more votes if the movies from India were spread out a bit? Because they seem to be concentrated at the beginning, I'm thinking some voters from other parts of the words, especially those looking for films from their country that they know, might not be compelled to keep going down the list? I think that would be stupid of them, of course, and is indicative of a short attention span, but it is 2017, after all, when, well, attention spans are shorter than an infant ant.

Suzy,

The idea of this and the other two "Top 27...27 Years" polls came from two of my existing polls which I made at the time of IMDb's 25th anniversary in 2015. Here are those two live polls:

1. Top 25 Movies from the Last 25 Years

2. Top 25 TV Shows from the Last 25 Years

You see the options are sorted by descending order of release year. That makes the list more formal. That's why in my new PS I used the same format by putting them according to the release year. Sorry Suzy, can not break the sequence. Please don't mind.

I took help of IMDb Top 250 and IMDb Top 1000 lists to make the PS. I was surprised to see so many Indian movies became top rated in those particular years.

Oh yeah, I see the descending order of year. I saw that they weren't in alphabetical order or in order of rank, so I didn't know if they were sorted in any particular order or not. It was just a thought. Its your poll so your preference, of course.

I'd rather sit on a mousetrap than watch most of these.
