I really enjoyed it too.  This sort of thing is what makes watching movies doubly fun.

I just wanted to say that even if I was not an active participant in the nominating or voting (even though I had planned to be), I enjoyed this project a lot.

And while this may not seem like much, it led directly to me checking out three 1957 films I may not have watched otherwise or put off again and again.

So thanks from me, too!

We'll have to prepare better for the chat next time so we can get more than 10 people in the room.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Great! I'd love a second opinion.
