2nd Chance Hall of Fame


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 accord, so I'm very glad you nominated it.

I don't typically end up ranking my own nomination at #1, but I really dug Ed Wood when I rewatched it. It was exactly the kind of film I wanted to see at the time, so that definitely helped. Here was my list:

01. Ed Wood
02. Raise the Red Lantern
03. Anatomy of a Murder
04. Letter from an Unknown Woman
05. Le Trou
DQ. Farewell My Concubine
06. Memento
07. After Hours
DQ. The Man from Earth
08. Pierrot le Fou

Thanks for hosting, Raul! This was an excellent idea for a HoF.

"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

Yeah I would definitely be open to this idea down the road again sometime. Was fun to revisit pretty much all of these, except Man from Earth which I still hated.

Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
A second Second Chance HoF would definitely be worthwhile in the future and THANKS raul for Hosting!!!

CONGRATS CR for the win on Raise the Red Lantern, a very worthy win!!

Here's my list:

1) Letter from an Unknown Woman
2) Memento
3) Raise the Red Lantern
4) Anatomy of a Murder
5) Ed Wood
6) Le Trou
7) Pierrot Le Fou
8) After Hours

This wasn't easy and I had to go with the enjoyment of the movies to make a list.
They say: that after people make love there's a kind of melancholia, the petite mort, the little death. Well, I'm here to tell you, after a romantic night with yourself there's a very acute sensation of failed suicide. ~Dylan Moran

Weird is relative.
Yay, I'm glad Raise the Red Lantern won! These were my votes.

1. Raise the Red Lantern (1991)
2. Ed Wood (1994)
3. Pierrot le Fou (1965)
4. Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
5. Memento (2000)
6. Letter from an Unknown Woman (1948)
7. After Hours (1985)
8. Le Trou (1960)

Sent my list in, this was by far the best Hall of Fame quality wise I've participated in I think my star ratings are

  1. Anatomy of a Murder
  2. Memento
  3. Raise the Red Lantern
  4. Le Trou
  5. Ed Wood
  6. Letter From an Unknown Woman
  7. Pierott Le Fou
  8. After Hours
  9. The Man From Earth
  10. Farwell my Concubine

Wow, I'm very surprised Raise the Red Lantern won. I didn't expect that especially as I had it as my #3. I do think highly of it, but there were a couple of other films that I also really, really liked.

I enjoyed this HoF, great idea Raul! I knew it would be fun back when you first talked about doing it. BTW I'm ready for another HoF right now

This was my voting list. The first 4 films I loved and were a toss up in my mind.

1 Anatomy of a Murder
2 Ed Wood
3 Raise the Red Lantern
4 Letter from an Unknown Woman
5 Le Trou
6 After Hours
7 Farewell my Concubine
8 The Man From Earth
9 Pierrot Le Fou
10 Memento

I think Pierrot Le Fou and Memento were both good films that achieved what they were trying to do, but they weren't my cup of tea, still good noms though.

Weird is relative.
After Hours coming last is a travesty.

For me this Hall was just to stacked, normally 3.5 would be a top three finisher for me
Agreed, I rated both After Hours and Le Trou 3.5 stars, but everything else was good, too.

The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible
  1. Pierrot le Fou
  2. Le Trou
  3. Raise the Red Lantern
  4. Letter from an Unknown Woman
  5. The Man from Earth
  6. After Hours
  7. Anatomy of a Murder
  8. Memento
  9. Ed Wood

A nice HoF, I would say Ed Wood is the only truly weak film I've seen here (for my taste). It's a good sign when I rank my own nom, which I adore, out of the top 3.

I would have voted like this-

1. Letter from an Unknown Woman
2. After Hours
3. Anatomy of a Murder
4. Le Trou
5. Raise the Red Lantern
6. Memento
7. Ed Wood
8. Pierrot Le Fou

I love the first 6 and also liked Ed Wood a lot. I liked Pierrot Le Fou a little the first time but disliked it the second time.
