I won't be joining this one for the same reason I didn't join the last one; there's an awful lot of Best Picture winners that I either didn't like, or just have little to no interest in seeing....

Being my #1 film, I was obviously rooting for Harakiri to win, but High and Low is a solid winner as well. :up: Congrats Siddon, and thanks for hosting Raul! I'm glad the technical issues you were...

If it means you guys can squeeze in another Western Hall of Fame before the deadline for the Countdown, then I'm okay with putting the Noir HoF on the back burner for now.

The first three to be revealed were the ones I had the hardest time ranking on my list. I knew my top three, as well as my bottom two, but numbers 4-6 really could've gone in any order. I ultimately...

I'd prefer a broader definition to add some variety, but would be perfectly happy with a limited "classic noir" HoF. If we do go the wider route though, the real question is whether or not to accept...

I wasn't demanding that your ballot shouldn't count in this Hall of Fame. I was saying that if this has been an ongoing concern, in future HoFs it might be better for the host to remain neutral and...

The couple of times I've hosted, I didn't read any of the other ballots until I'd finalized my own.

Other people's rankings should have no influence on your own. I think it's really unfair for the...

Same here. I rep every HoF review regardless as to whether or not I agree with the poster's opinion of the film, since it's nice to see people participating and making some effort.

Same, though we didn't even have after school detention, or at least I never heard about it. I don't think it would even have been allowed, because the kids might not be able to get home if they...

Re: Japanese Film Hall of Fame

A South Korean Hall of Fame would be great. All my favourite films from there tend to run a little on the long side though.

Nowhere near being over the restrictions long, but long enough that I...

The majority of R-rated films in the US end up being 14A here instead of 18A anyway, so even between English-speaking countries there's clearly a difference in what general audiences will find...

Even if most of the regular HoF participants wanted to, the problem with adding a rule to exclude "banned films" is that many countries will ban or edit films for reasons that general audiences in...

If I had joined I guess there would've been one earlier film nominated since the two I considered were both noirs. I didn't get a chance to rewatch either though, which is why I'm just loitering in...

Most of what it changes is largely inconsequential to the overall plot. The added scenes just expand on certain information or relationships. There's some alterations to colour, but I honestly don't...

That is the theatrical cut opening, and yeah, the narration at the start does give out certain information a little too early.

For anyone curious, you can skip to 1:12 in that video to completely...

If possible, I actually recommend watching the opening of Dark City's theatrical cut, then switching to the director's cut after. The voice over is unnecessary, but I think the opening sequence is...

I had The Hunt ranked first on my list in the 13th HoF before it was disqualified, so it's nice to see it get another chance. :up:
