I like this! I wanted to devise a similar game, but it seemed like too much work. The only thing I would change is to allow us to add/select our own movies. And the numbers are going to get screwed up quickly due to errors carried forward. But this is a good try.

First thing I am doing is erasing the previous person's adjustments before adding my own.

Reefer Madness (20)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (20)
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (20)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (20)
The Giant Spider Invasion (20)
Mommie Dearest (20)
Maximum Overdrive (20)
Howard the Duck (20)
Masters of the Universe (20)
Ishtar (17)
Mac and Me (20)
Road House (20)
Troll 2 (22)
Super Mario Bros. (20)
Showgirls (20)
Spice World (20)
The Room (22) +2
The Wicker Man (20)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (20)
Sharknado (17) -3

And maybe after that add the new list ranked and with adjustments removed for the next person to copy and paste:

Troll 2 (22)
The Room (22)
Reefer Madness (20)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (20)
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (20)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (20)
The Giant Spider Invasion (20)
Mommie Dearest (20)
Maximum Overdrive (20)
Howard the Duck (20)
Masters of the Universe (20)
Mac and Me (20)
Road House (20)
Super Mario Bros. (20)
Showgirls (20)
Spice World (20)
The Wicker Man (20)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (20)
Ishtar (17)
Sharknado (17)

I'll try, tho I'm not sure I understand. Are we trying to order these from best to worst by adding & subtracting points? How do we define Best & Worst?

Ah well, here I go:

Troll 2 (22)
The Room (22)
Reefer Madness (20)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (20)
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (20) -3 (I actually think it's an OK kids sci-fi movie, so it's not bad enough.)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (20) +2 (So poorly made it seems like a fever dream.)
The Giant Spider Invasion (20)
Mommie Dearest (20) +2 (Not poorly made, but it's too obvious that it's meant as vengeance by a daughter who was left out of a will. Also, "NO! WIRE! HANGERS! NOWIREHANGERSEVER!!" is too silly.)
Maximum Overdrive (20)
Howard the Duck (20)
Masters of the Universe (20)
Mac and Me (20)
Road House (20)
Super Mario Bros. (20)
Showgirls (20)
Spice World (20)
The Wicker Man (20)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (20)
Ishtar (17)
Sharknado (17)

New Scores:

Troll 2 (22)
The Room (22)
Mommie Dearest (22)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (22)
Reefer Madness (20)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (20)

That was correct except as I understand the rules you only do one +2 and one -3 per post.

Exactly

If a certain title reaches "0" points it will be eliminated from the list. The first title eliminated will be #20 on another list, the next title eliminated after that is #19 and so on. The surviving movie with the most points will be #1 as in the "best" of the bunch.

So the game could proceed if pac chooses between MOMMIE and MANOS. (I might try coming up with a similar but alternate game I've been thinking about).

Take out Mommie Dearest; it's bad, but Manos is worse.

Sorry for the confusion.

Rev. Powell

#12
So, removing extra MOMMIE vote and adding in my votes for today it looks like

Troll 2 (22)
The Room (22)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (22)
Mommie Dearest (20)
Reefer Madness (20)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (20) +2
The Giant Spider Invasion (20)
Maximum Overdrive (20)
Howard the Duck (20)
Masters of the Universe (20)
Mac and Me (20)
Road House (20)
Super Mario Bros. (20)
Showgirls (20)
Spice World (20)
The Wicker Man (20)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (20)
Ishtar (17) -3
Sharknado (17)
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (17)

New raking:

Troll 2 (22)
The Room (22)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (22)
Plan 9 from Outer Space (22)
Mommie Dearest (20)
Reefer Madness (20)
The Giant Spider Invasion (20)
Maximum Overdrive (20)
Howard the Duck (20)
Masters of the Universe (20)
Mac and Me (20)
Road House (20)
Super Mario Bros. (20)

Spice World (20)
The Wicker Man (20)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (20)
Sharknado (17)
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (17)
Ishtar (14)

Simple rule explanation: each day, pick one bad movie on this list you like (+2) and one you don't like (-3). You don't even have to recreate the list, as long as someone else does later.
