To have a yearly definitive list of The 100 Best, Most Badass Action/Adventure/Thriller-Action/War-Action/Western-Action Films Of All Time (according to Team AOBG (that's all of us)).Step One: Title Submission
From now until December 31st, 2012
, all those who wish to participate and have joined this here forum, will be allowed to submit their own lists of their favorite 25
action films they deem badass enough to be considered the best-of-the-best of Action, in this here thread.
And in case you're wondering, here is what we at AOBG consider to be an "Action" movie: Any film in which action drives the plot. To extrapolate, any movie in which the story of the film is progressed through scenes of action. Simple, right? Also, a good rule of thumb would be: If you look the film up on IMDb
, and under the GENRE it says at least Action
, it's relatively safe for consideration. For a list of films that ARE NOT, see the second post of this thread.NOTE: Important, DO NOT waste any of your 25 action submissions on titles ALREADY on the current list. These titles will automatically be up for consideration on 2012's. ALSO! For a good starting point of ideas on what to grace your lists with, check out the list of "Losers" from last years list HERE. There are a lot of great flicks on there that could very well make it this year...
Further more, if you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask HERE
, in the Discussion Thread. Which is explained in the following note...NOTE: In order to keep things tidy, I'll ask that every participant reserve themselves JUST ONE post in this thread SPECIFICALLY for their own submissions and just edit it accordingly over the course of the open submission time-frame as needed/wanted. That thread is once again, located, HEREStep Two: Marathon Men
As they are posted, it is your job/duty/pleasure to get out there and view as many of the other participating AOBGer's selections that you yourself have not seen (as possible), until the cut-off date (which is, once again, December 31st). You know, in order to broaden your badass horizons and to have a truthful and better say in what will make the final cut.Step Three: End Of The Year Election
Beginning January 1st
, everyone's title submissions will be listed alphabetically (each film only once, obviously) in this topic's second post: 'The List Of Top Action Candidates'. Then, each participant will vote on every
movie on 'The List Of Top Action Candidates' that they have truthfully
seen, on a scale of 1 to 10 using the following scale as a reference:The All Outta BubbleGum Rating System
01 = Irredeemable: Avoid At All Costs
02 = Awful: A Complete Waste Of Time
03 = Bad: Fails To Entertain, And Annoying As Well
04 = Not Good: Fails To Entertain
05 = Average: Nothing Special, One Way Or The Other
06 = Not Bad: Slightly Above Average, Just OK
07 = Good: Definitely Worth Watching
08 = Really Good: A Must See
09 = Great: Damn Near Perfect
10 = Perfect: The Personification Of BadAss
Voting shall then commence through January 7th
. That means you have from JANUARY 1ST - 7TH TO VOTE
on the 'The List Of Top Action Candidates' (which, once again, is the COMBINED list of all movies, from all participants to be posted in the next reply, by me, on January 1st, 2013).Step Four: I Tally-Ho
All the ratings submitted by January 7th, 2013 (the rating cut-off date) by the participants will then be added up, divided and averaged (based on how many voted on each particular movie), by me to create a Team
AOBG Rating for each entry. NOTE: Depending on how many of you AOBGer's end up participating, there may or may not be a minimum vote per movie for it to remain eligible. I.E. I don't think it would fair for a movie with a high average rating from 10 votes, to lose out to one that rated higher averaged from, 2 votes. But this potential cut-off remains to be seen.Step Five: Success
Finally, after averaging up all 'The List Of Top Action Candidates' votes, the Top 100 shall be named in The AOBG Action 100 List: 2012
Which will be posted shortly after the New Year! So sign-up, set up camp and get to crafting your lists and watching some fuckin' action, fellas!
As this thread is reserved specifically for the lists, if you have ANY Questions or Comments, post them up in the THE AOBG ACTION 101 Discussion thread: HERE
