I'm not at all opposed of us choosing 5, 10, or 20 entries. I'm only trying to look at this from the point of view of a poll VOTER. It's very hard to vote on polls that have a full 'roster' of 35 entries, let alone polls that have 175 entries (35 x 5). An average brain (f.e. mine) forgets what it was reading, after a couple of entries, let alone this much.

You do have a point. It will be a little more difficult for a voter if there are more choices (although I dont think it will get 35 entries), I just believe it would be better for us, the poll board members.

Whenever I make a poll, I have two things in mind:
a) whether I actually like and care for that poll
b) whether a voter will enjoy it

So, whenever someone makes a poll such as ''List your 10 favorite films'' or something, I'm more than happy to throw in my picks, because (I freely admit it) it feeds my ego. I mean, we all like to flaunt with our favorites, don't we?
But from a standpoint of a voter (which I also am), I don't really like it when I have to vote in polls so huge.

It's nice that you two are ... asking the poll creator to handle a greater load of work and keep on pushing this burden over and over. You should respect his choice. If he chooses it... then good.

Added, thank you for reminding me!
Gotta see Shop Around the Corner sometime... that's the one that You've Got Mail was based on; didn't like that one at all but the original would probably be much cuter.  :)

Unless I'm forgetting something, my three favorites are probably: 

Lost in Translation (2003)
Reds (1981)
Disobedience (2017)

(It's a little hard to leave off Closer, Call Me by Your Name, The Upside of Anger, and Manhattan)

Thank you!  My apologies to everyone who did not get their picks in because they were not aware it was 3 choices; that was my bad, I changed the rules afterwards.  :)
