EVENT: Metropolis Top 50 Japanese Films of All Time

For those who want to access the complete list, click here.

Users of the Metropolis Film Discord Server were asked to provide a list of their Top 10 Japanese films, ranked. Each film was assigned points in descending order from 10 to 1, with an added multiplier of 1.5 for users with a role of composer or higher in order to adjust for activity/status level of the users and thus hopefully provide a more accurate representation of the server's taste. In the case of a tiebreaker, the film with more total votes was given preference. However there were still several ties, so it's worth going through the notes to see the actual point tally/vote count for each film.

All in…
