Sure, no problem. I'll run some find-and-replace tools on it.

So you want it formatted like the first three on your list, or not? I couldn't quite decipher the "put the current rating in parentheses" bit. Did you mean current rating or current position? Gimme a sample, please (if the first three above are not indeed a sample of what you want).

Sorry ― current position. (I gave an alphabetized sample of just looking at the first 3 ratings.)

There you go, smithee. Hope I did it ok (I saved a backup of your original post just in case).

I only added the year to a few that were obvious (King Kong, Crash), but I'm sure you'll go through them and add any others that should be on there.

The order is Blue, White, and Red, the same order as the French flag. Watch them in order and pay attention to people in the background, they will show up again.
