Looks like Nathaniel was spot on with those guesses haha. Congrats on the win Citizen! Raise the Red Lantern was a beautiful film, and it's something I probably wouldn't have watched on my own...

Re: 2nd Chance Hall of Fame

Letter from an Unknown Woman was ranked 4th four times, and finished at #4. That's quite amusing haha.

Edit: Just noticed that it also had 40 points. That makes four 4s!

Re: 2nd Chance Hall of Fame

Since they were disqualified after I sent my list, I'll just mention now that I had Farewell My Concubine ranked 6th, and The Man From Earth in the 9th spot. I was certain Man from Earth would end up...

Re: 2nd Chance Hall of Fame

Even though I wasn't a huge fan of the film, I'm also surprised that After Hours finished last.

Hope you're feeling better now, and have more time to relax. Being busy and sick is never a good combination, since you don't really get the rest you need to fully recover.

That movie did creep me out a bit as a kid. Particularly the Wheelers.

Re: 2nd Chance Hall of Fame

I'd probably remember watching something 3 times, but 4 or more definitely makes things harder to track for me.

I found it odd that he was still allowed to have it when he was in jail.

Re: 2nd Chance Hall of Fame

I do not remember any mention of hard labour as a sentence, just that some of them had a minimum of 10 years to serve. I could've missed it though, especially if it was just brought up once.

While I think the French only have one word for both jail and prison, the correctional facility in the film is certainly a prison, at least by Canadian standards. Jails here tend to be run by local...

Due to its length, I thought I would have to break up Farewell My Concubine over two days, but I managed to watch the entire thing in one sitting. I'm not sure if I'll get anything written tonight...

I'm pretty sure that I actually said out loud (to no one since I was here alone) "That's not red" the first time I saw them too haha.

It didn't bother me since the keys the guards were using didn't seem that advanced. I assume that someone who knew what he was doing could probably pick those locks quite easily.
