The "Nickname" Game
A nickname is an informal name given to someone or something, often preceded with a.k.a. (though sometimes it's the real name that goes after). This poll focuses on nicknames given to human characters, either real of fictional. Indeed, many movies are named after a main character who's mostly referred to through a nickname, the following list doesn't include however nicknames that give indication of the character's job or title, nor does it feature terms of endearments (so no Godfather, Birdman of Alcatraz and Mommie Dearest, also the choice is limited to English titles and one film per franchise) Which of these "nickname" movie titles is your favorite? After voting, you might discuss the list here

Best Nostalgic Film
"Yesterday... all my troubles seemed so far away... With the sad passing of Gloria Katz, writer of American Graffiti (1973) and the release of Alfonso Cuarón's much anticipated Roma (2018), an autobiographical film based on his childhood in Mexico City, let's have a look on all these times of happiness and/or melancholy where nostalgia was brought to the silver screen. The following fictionalized autobiographies, coming-of-age stories or lighthearted dramas may not all be based on the director's or a writer's early years... but they all have one thing in common: they convey a warm, sad, dreamy or bittersweet feeling of nostalgia either from the narrative or the way the characters (no gangsters included) reminisce about their sweet old memories. And the nostalgia can be so powerful that viewers might feel nostalgic about times or places they didn't even know. Which of these nostalgic films is your favorite? After voting, you might discuss the list here

30 memorable quotes said before dying ...
A great screen character doesn't necessarily need a great entrance but the exit MUST leave an indelible impact on the viewer's mind, and if by any chance (of lack of) the character dies, the chances are high that his or her last words shall never be forgotten by collective memories. This is a compilation of 30 quotes uttered by (mainly important or scene-stealing supporting) characters before their last gasp, or the following, expected or not, 'bang' or 'boom' ... and whether they see death coming and try to leave the world with style or honor, or don't see it but remain true to their nature, the last quote remaings their last shining cinematic moment. So, which of these 30 last words apart from the iconic and plot-defining "Rosebud" do you think is the most memorable? Discuss here PS: No spoilers since the names of the characters (may they rest in peace or rot in hell) are never mentioned

Happy 75th Birthday (Favorite 1939 Film)
The films released in 1939 are 75 years old this year. Which of these notable 1939 films is your favorite? Of this poll, IMDb Daily Poll Board member ElMaruecan82 said: "I think this is a terrific idea, but not because these films are turning 75 this year but because they happen to be from the greatest cinematic year ever: 1939. I believe the year deserves a little tribute in your descriptive text, something reminding us that Hollywood's Golden Age reached its pinnacle in 1939, before the Old World would forever collapse under Hitler's tanks ... like a last gasp of brightness, life and colors before the dark."
