Anyone who’s been onto IMDb (stands for Internet Movie Database) knows they have a list of 250 films voted as the best of all time. The list is made up of average votes by regular readers and voters on the site, and with a readership of over 20 million a month, it’s seen as a pretty accurate list. Of course, there’s films on there that we disagree with, or believe it should be higher/lower on the list, and that’s where the RA Movie Tournament comes in.
How does it work?
First off, to make the numbers a little more even, we’ll ask you to vote for your three favourite movies from the numbers 240 to 250. Don’t worry, we’ll include all the information you need to make a decision if you haven’t seen any of them. The 3 movies which emerge victorious from this round will enter into the main draw, and be left with the top 240 from IMDb.
Then, we’ll have 243 films in the race to be crowned RA readers top film of all time. We’ll then have a random draw with ties that includes 3 movies and let you pick your favourite from each tie, with the winner of each tie progressing and so on until we find the winner of the RA movie tournament. Each tie lets your order the movies, and for each tie we’ll award 5 points for your favourite, 3 points for the second and 1 point for the least favourite.
