Favorite Life Mulligan or Life Do-Over Movie
NATIONAL MULLIGAN DAY is celebrated annually on October 17th. Movies with a life mulligan themed plot share the same premise, but each is uniquely interesting and worth watching. The main characters in life mulligan themed movies are dissatisfied with their lives. However, they get the unique gift to see how things would be if their lives had turned out differently. Although the premise is the same, the paths and plot devices used to achieve the awakening and the actual life mulligan vary. In the end, they return to their original lives knowing the grass isn't always greener and are much happier for it. Which of these movies whose plot has a life mulligan or life do-over theme is your favorite? After voting, discuss the topic here.

Most Desirable All Star Cast
You are making a film - with an unlimited budget. Which all star ensemble from one of these movies would you chose as your cast? Remember, you're voting purely for the group of actors involved, not for the best film. Because, given the chance, you would, of course, make a much better job of it in your production than some of the directors did in these films! The possibly even more impressive casts of the Harry Potter films, The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies and the Batman/Dark Knight franchise are beyond your means, because even an unlimited budget has its limits... ;-) Discuss here

The Pelican State Movies
The Pelican State is the official nickname of Louisiana. The brown pelican was designated the official state bird of Louisiana in 1966. Early European settlers were impressed with the pelican's generous and nurturing attitude toward their young, and the pelican has been a symbol of Louisiana since that time. The pelican appears on Louisiana's state flag, great seal, the official state painting and is one of three Louisiana symbols displayed on the U.S. mint's bicentennial Louisiana quarter (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Louisiana became the 18th state of the United States of America in 1812. These movies have a connection with Louisiana. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Louisiana? You may discuss the poll here Click here to vote for other States of America

Favourite Whacky Character
Some of the characters in these films are just unconventional or eccentric, others are stark raving mad. Which of them is your personal favourite? I had to list them by the films they feature in, because some of them have no character page or the character appears in several (sometimes very different) versions in multiple films. If there is more than one character from the same film, the film appears twice in the list, with different charactors (actors playing them) listed beside the film title. Discuss the list here: http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000088/thread/223653701
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?

The following movies involve time travel, but they are not considered Sci-Fi genre according to IMDb. Which one do you think is the best?
