Japanese Film Hall of Fame

Tools    









After the success of the Russian Hall of Fame, I figured it was just a matter of time before another country should do a Hall of Fame and I couldn't think of one with better support on these forums than a Japanese Hall of Fame. Lots of great ones to pick from and thanks everyone for showing interest in this.

I'll take the noms until Friday, again the constraints will stay the same as all other HOFs go. I believe Sansho the Bailiff is the only ineligible film as it has won a previous HOF but correct me if I'm wrong. Let's have fun with this!

More than likely this will be a smaller Hall of Fame as well but again please don't join unless you have intention on reviewing all films and also not waiting until the last minute to do so. There will be ample time allowed to complete this however.

Spirited Away and Raise the Red Lantern are also ineligible



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Raise the Red Lantern is a Chinese film.
hence, ineligible



sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Sent my nomination in

I watched a handful of potential nominations this past week, but had pretty mediocre reactions to all of them, so the search continues. I'm not sure what my problem is lately. Maybe my taste is changing, or I've just had a really bad run of luck picking films.



Definitely in, and excited to see what the other noms are.

I'm really excited about this now. I'm hoping a few big guns turn up that I haven't watched so can tick them off the list.



Raise the Red Lantern is a Chinese film.

therefore...it's doubly ineligible

I'm pretty happy with my nomination as it looks like all four of you haven't seen my pick (I checked your lists)

What lists?
Lists section of MoFo. Do you fill those out?

I've only just remembered about those, no I haven't updated them for a few years - but I see there are a few Japanese movies on there - which is great as they are mostly ones I haven't seen anyway.



I just want to hug (your FACE)!
I think I'm going to sit on the sidelines, but I am very interested in everyone's nominations. I have only seen a few Japanese movies and would like to expand that. I'm glad this is up.

I think I have a nomination now, but I'll have to sleep on it and see how I feel about it tomorrow. It has an actor and director in common with the film I watched yesterday, but the tones are pretty much exact opposites so it might've been better to watch them in reverse order haha.

Gosh! I imagine a DVD case would be quite the challenge to rest comfortably on! Even more so if it's a VHS cassette. Prayers that it's not a Betamax and that you are able to sleep well all the same.
