The full details ...

To decide what year has the best movies, we're starting with 2010 and working backwards 32 years. Why 32? Because then we can put it in a bracket just like the NCAA Final Four. For each year, TSR has listed seven notable films. The key word is notable. Well, actually films would be the key word, but you get my point. Yes, you should consider any and all movies from a given year. I just gave you a reference to some of the key movies in a given year. Why seven? Well, we do TOP 7 lists, so that's why we've helped you out with seven suggestions from that year.

Now, I don't want to tell you how you should vote, but here's how you should vote ... Don't do this -- Well, Star Wars is my favorite film, so 1977 wins every time. Consider the entire year of films and how it ranks. The latest year goes against the earliest year, the second latest year against the second earliest, and so on and so forth.

This is just the first round.

Enjoy. Vote. Tell your friends. In that order.
