Title: Filmspotter's Favourites
Post by: smirnoff on April 05, 2015, 12:53:24 AM
If you've got roughly nine minutes of time I put together a slideshow of filmspotters #1 film's. I tried to include everyone who has been active in the last year, has a few posts, and who (when necessary) responded to my PM's. I did my best not to miss anybody! :) PM me and I'll add you.

Yeah, it was definitely bittersweet for me.

I had a change in mind, but the fact that three people shared my one in the slideshow and no one had the one I was thinking about switching it to makes that decision more appealing.

Thanks guys, I'm glad people have enjoyed looking at it as much as I've enjoyed making and sharing it.

That is a great summary of varied film loves on this board.

I think this is my favourite part. Seeing all these films lined up next to one another. Immense variety, one community. :)

This is so great. Love the variety, love the passion. I love almost all of the one's I've seen, and I want to see all the ones I haven't!

That was so amazing!!!  And a few surprises in there.  Loved it!

And a few surprises in there.

Yeah, that was pretty great. And I didn't realize before that someone had Claire Denis' Trouble Every Day as his favorite film.

I love all the screenshots!  You took so much time to find a wonderful shot for each film. 

Notice you didn't put farris on.  His would be Synedoche, NY, I believe.

I will need to watch the few I haven't seen yet.  I don't suppose you have the list handy, do you?

I will have to remember to come back and watch this when I'm not at work lol. Thanks for putting this together smirnoff! Maybe in conjunction we can rejuvenate this thread (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=7372.0)!

@noff I got the idea you were collecting impressions about the nature of favourite films....or maybe that was just me giving them to you anyway.....I do that  :P

I'm glad you did. Mainly I just thought it would be better keeping it a surprise. :)

Yea, I used an arbitrary cut off of being active within the last year. That's why he didn't show up on the list. My thinking was that the list would be most useful if it was current... representive of the community as it exists now, and not as it used to exist.

Yea, I hope to convert it into a more checkable format shortly, and keep it in that first post. And hopefully keep it updated. :)

That's soemthing I will try to incorporate when I post the list. A space for links to writings on that film.

update

-Updated the front page with a text list. I included links to do user-specific and general google queries, and also a space for official reviews for anyone who has written what they feel is their "definitive thoughts" on a film, however they want to define that. You can pm me the link to that post and I'll update the list to include it.

Anyone who wants me to make any changes to the exisitng list, or who wants to be added or removed from the list, just let me know and I'll be happy to do it.

I'll also try and keep the slideshow up to date as well, not that I really imagine people will be going through it multiple times, but new members may want to take a look, and HOPEFULLY be a part of the fun. :)

Great work Noff!
So far I've absolutely loved my time on these boards, and its always nice to see our individual tastes celebrated like this. I gave out a delighted little squeek anytime I saw one of your guys' tastes validated my appreciation for something.


I think after all of my Essentials marathons I will compile any remaining films on this list and marathon them as well.


Also, congratulations AAAustin and Shin for giving the correct answer.

Cheers jmbossy. :)

small update
The boards seem to have a limit on how many links you can have in a post, and it was messing up my table, so I simplified it. I'll work on it though to include the reviews at least.

That was terrific. Seeing the slides was better than a list of names and titles. Would love to do more things like this. Getting more specific than just favorite film overall.
