I don't think I'm a poll board member, probably not. (I've taken a lot, but I've never made one.) But if anyone else agrees, here are 3 for consideration:
1. The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1965)
2. The Lost Weekend (1945)
3. Call Me by Your Name (2017)

Replace 2. with The Best Years of Our Lives (1946). Always loved that title.

I also used to think that the "Poll Board" was some elite group, like a Board of Directors or something.

Actually, they use the word "board" in the context of meaning "people who contribute to the Polls section of these message boards."

So you (and I) are, in fact, members!

Another author did this two years ago:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-poll-board-favorite-movie-titles

I suppose you could make a part 2 if you exclude titles that were used in the other poll.

You don't have to start a new conversation, you can continue with this one.

But wouldn't I have to clarify which titles one could include (i.e have a link to "part 1" of the poll ) ?

Goddangwatir,

You can simply ask an admin to edit the thread's description for you.

Provide a text and ask them to replace (or update) it with your current description.

Yes, that would perhaps be the most optimal choice.

You could have asked it right here, on this very thread. There was no need to create a separate conversation.

I didn't post this message there so you can delete that if you want and copy & paste the edit request right here. All the best!

#3) Killer Klowns from Outer Space

This poll is now a "part 2", after I realised that an author had the same idea two years prior.

"Part 1":
https://www.imdb.com/poll/3hAPfYuK-6E/

Since 'Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb' is already in that poll, and I wish to have different titles in this one, should I use 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension' as its replacement or do you have another pick ?

In the meantime, I will add 'The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension' as your no. 1 pick and 'Killer Klowns from Outer Space' as your no. 2 pick. Therefore I will be needing a new no. 3 pick from you.

Too many, I'd have a hard time trimming it down to 30, let alone 3.

But here they are:

Come and See (1985)
Amadeus (1984)
Apocalypse Now (1979)

Added 'Come and See' as your no. 1 pick and 'Amadeus' as your no. 2 pick !

Sorry for replying a month late.

Instead of Apocalypse Now, I'd pick Jaws. It's very catchy, short and clever. To this day, whenever a larger-than-usual shark is caught in my country, all the papers (well, websites now) have the headline "Jaws caught" as if it's the name of the shark.

I also feel like explaining the reason I picked Amadeus as the no. 2 best title, since it seems simple enough, why should it be great? Someone on the trivia page explained it perfectly, pointing out why the movie is not called Mozart, by the great composer's better known name. Amadeus means "God's loved one" more or less. The main theme of the movie is Salieri's resentment and hatred towards God, because by abstaining from women and dedicating his love to music and faith, he believes he deserved to be gifted with the musical talent that Mozart has. He's not simply jealous of Mozart, he's also resentful that God has favored Mozart over him, that he's "the loved one" instead of him. So the simple, one-word title has a deeper meaning than just being the name of the main character.

Only 3?
1-Taxi Driver

2-City Lights

3-One Flew Over the Cucko's Nest

Added 'Taxi Driver' as your no. 1 pick and 'City Lights' as your no. 2 pick !

Each title will be added individually, hence why it is only three different picks.

My pick would probably be Into the Woods.
It sounds suspenseful and intriguing, although the actual film was trash (in my little opinion, at least!)  :)

Do you have no. 2 and 3 picks as well ?

Okay, for #2, I have The Wolf of Wall Street.  When I first heard of it, I literally thought it was about a werewolf... like the Werewolf of Washington?  LOL!  So I guess I did consider the title itself awesome.  Will have to put a little more thought into #3.

Okay, I've got my third pick!  It's...
Buffalo Rider.  
Yes, there's a movie called Buffalo Rider.  It's accidentally amusing at times, although it wears thin and can be kinda dark.  But the title just makes me smile.  I mean, there's so many things wrong with it.  :D
