After some good chat discussion last night, I posted new rules in the first thread. Basically, I will be watching 2 unseen films from your Top 100 plus 2 additional films dictated by you. I still like the anticipation of revealing the titles (and order) before the marathon starts so I'm keeping discussion in the PMs.
This is simply a Marathon now. No longer a Contest.
There's the inevitability of me coming upon a film that I don't like. oldkid expressed concern about recommending The Mission to me, though our discussion has me wanting to see it now regardless. This isn't about me dumping on personal favorites, so if I don't like a film, I will keep my comments very brief.
I also think this is a good marathon for posting in the "Respond to the last movie you watched" thread with links and additional comments here.
There's room for 11 more people. Plus anyone entered can change their selections if they want to pick different titles under the new rules, knowing that I'll be selecting 2 from their Top 100 already.
