I'm excited to see what everyone has chosen for you. Whether you choose to keep that a secret until you review the film or whatever.

1SO vs. Filmspotters Marathon - New Rules
« Reply #11 on: July 04, 2012, 09:56:07 AM »
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.

This is a really great idea, 1SO, and I'm so glad you're going forward with it.  I'm going to try to get a couple of film titles to you today.  (If there's still room for another participant that is!)

You're in. That leaves 10 more slots. I'm holding one of those for Junior, who I know is on holiday. (Be good to watch a couple of more Borzage.)

Ooh, even more films now. :)

Are you going to let people know which 2 films from their top 100 you're watching?

Some of them I've discussed on PMs. Many probably won't know until I reveal the full list.

Would you like me to send you a current top-100? I expect I'm basically ready to work on that...only a couple more months until the FS100.

I'll play... unless posting here instead of in a PM disqualifies me. :)

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

pixote, you're in. I would like to discuss titles in the PM instead of here.

7 more slots open.

With you I was going to select from the Bondo essentials.

Great!

I'm going to try to get a couple of film titles to you today.
Make that tomorrow. Was gone for much of the day today!
