  2. As for Anime of the Year, it easily goes to Re:Zero for me. It was absolutely awesome with the only downside being that it was a tad too sadistic quite some times. Erased lost all of its momentum in the second half. Yuri on Ice was good but I am unable to see what made it special....I just saw it as a good but nothing-that-unique sports anime. The music throughout was good especially the opening and Ending themes, animation was pretty good and the routines did seem somewhat unique and well realized through the character narrative during them but other than that the whole layout seemed pretty generic. Maybe 8/10 overall. I seriously want to understand what others saw in it.
  3. Yup, Absolutely beautiful. And the characters are incredibly well developed and realized in that short span of time. You get attached. My favorite shinkai film (still haven't seen Kimi No wa though).
  4. Wow I was pretty sure it would make it to the the top 10 but first? Thats quite surprising. Not that I disagree much. Its a great great film, another one of Pixar's masterpieces. But I'd probably place it somewhere near 15. Except for Toy Story 3 I'd place it below all the other films in the top 11 and a few others from the rest of the list. The best animated film for me though is easily Grave of the Fireflies. Simply putting it...its a flawless film. The most perfect film I have ever seen, animated or otherwise.
  5. If only I had got to this thread in time.... This should have been in the top 100 atleast. Its got few of the most beautiful scenes in the world of animation and is probably the best of the lesser known Ghibli films.
  6. David Fincher - Se7en, Fight Club, Gone Girl Peter Jackson - LOTR 1, 2, 3 And Christopher Nolan- The Dark Knight, Memento, Inception Or Pete Docter - Inside Out, Up and Monsters Inc

  8. "If you call a film to hit the top 15 and it misses, you will lose points for missing the top 15 and you will lose DOUBLE points if the gross misses by more than the 40 million allotted to you " What?!

  10. I just remembered about and looked at SOTM 12 (the 20,000 points thing) and man, almost everybody who didnt abstain is losing massively there. Most people predicted Pete's dragon around 100m, thats -30k right there! Its going to really benefit all the abstainees. Some of us, like me, are losing 50k....
  11. Dammit! If only I had not missed those two weeks... Really happy with my SOTM score though. Almost double the second highest scoring guy's points with only 3 more remaining of which I have the highest in one and am top 3 in another. Totally reverse of the Winter Game where I got second highest points in the weeklies (how do you do it Exxdee?) and a really good preseason score and just missed the overall Top 5 due to a negative overall SOTM score. This time its the negative preseason score that will screw me.
