All the following directors have received the Academy Award for Best Directing but not all of their movies have been so well received by critics and spectators. This list present their lowest rated titles (min.: 10,000 votes/max. rating: 6.5).

Which of these movies do you like the most despite bad reviews? Or, if you haven't seen any, which one interests you the most?

List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027578838/
Poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/kmIdS5T2GjA/

[Note: It's my first submission since the end of the message boards, please tell me if the rules have changed. If you like this concept, I already have three other lists:
- One with the directors of the IMDb Top 250: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027560754/
- Two with the directors of the IMDb Top 1000: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027589804/ and http://www.imdb.com/list/ls027704067/]

This is a spectacular idea, nice work!

You wrote "lowest rated 'gun'" instead of 'title' under Jane Got A Gun. It's a typo I presume, but it's an amusing one and for that I applaud you.

I don't really like any of these movies, but if I had to vote for one it'd maybe be Alien 3?

I was looking at the wrong list I think. XD I'll re-vote for Star Trek.

Hi Pictoris,

I'm happy to see you make the transition to Get Satisfaction.

My vote: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

From what I can tell, you've met all the criteria for a poll suggestion. Just in case, you may wish to read the following if you have not already done so:

Welcome back Pictoris.

About your top 250 list, we have different directos and movies. But I have a similar poll, in case you want to compare

Thank you!
I hadn't seen your poll, it was a good idea! I was just a little more selective with my titles (minimum number of votes: 10,000 and maximum rating: 6.5/10), it may be interesting to compare the results. In your poll like in mine, I'll pick Alien 3. :)

Hi Pictoris! It's good to see you again. 'Great poll: My vote would go to 'Breaking & Entering' or perhaps 'To Rome with Love.'

It looks like you got everything covered: off the top of my head, none of the rules have changed except that after 6 December, there will be no more character-based polls (only title or image-based). You can read about that here: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/changes-to-imdb-characters?topic-reply-list[settings][page]=...

Two days...that was fast! Congrats Pictoris. If you want you could still add my suggestions - just put them at the end of the list and request a re-push on this thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faq-poll-authors-re-push-requests

You can't put the new ones interspersed throughout the list (was that alphabetical by the directors' last names? *Swoon*. You need to revise to the original order. Then put the new options at the very end of the list. Then go to the re-push thread

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faq-poll-authors-re-push-requests?topic-reply-list[settings]...,

skip to the last page. You can see the format to ask for a re-push. Do it, then the admins will check it out when they have time.

Pictoris,

Your poll cannot be re-pushed without damaging it. You've changed the order of the list. New choices MUST be added at the end. Please re-order your list to correspond to the order of your poll.

Per
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faq-poll-authors-re-push-requests
Very Rarely OK Revisions
* Deleting a Choice
* Re-Arranging and Order of A Choice
* Re-pushing to Replace Valid Options Without Votes
These used to be impossible, but they are rarely OK. It is allowable in the case they do NOT affect any live votes and the duplicate choice and ALL items following it in the list have ZERO votes. If you have any doubt, please post to your original thread before making this change; if you do it incorrectly, you will never be able to update your poll again!
