The Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame

Tools    





How well do you know your fellow MoFos and what they like?

This will be a different kind of specialty Hall of Fame, not one in which a movie will win, but rather a member.

Instead of the normal practice of nominating one movie for everyone to watch, you will nominate a different movie for every member. You will choose what your fellow members will be watching by picking one that they haven't crossed off from any of their MoFo lists. So make sure that you're lists are up to date! Maybe you'll pick a movie you think someone will love, or maybe you'll pick a favorite of your own that you want someone else to watch. The choice is yours!

There are some positives unique to this Hall of Fame. The biggest is probably that you'll be watching every nomination for the first time, no more rewatching a movie you recently saw or didn't like before. Also, with being on a MoFo list, you will be watching movies that have some acclaim either here or somewhere else. This could be a nice head start on preparation for the next countdown. And it's always nice to cross a few movies off our lists. If someone can't get their hands on a movie they're supposed to watch, whoever nominated it can simply choose another one. There's no concern over other members having already watched it.

There's 2 parts to start this. First you have to join. You have until Sunday night the 15th to do just that. Once Monday the 16th comes, we will know who the members are, and then everyone can send their personal recommendation nominations to me. Once I have them from everyone, I will post them and come up with a due date. If you pick a movie for someone that has already been picked for them, you will simply be asked to pick another. You can pick the same movie for multiple members as long as they all haven't crossed it off their lists.

Voting will be just like any other Hall of Fame. I'm going to put a runtime limit at 2 hours and 40 minutes. For this Hall of Fame, I will waive that limit for people nominating for me. Everyone else has that option as well. Previous winners can be nominated in this Hall of Fame.

Hopefully everyone finishes, but if you watch a movie chosen by someone who drops out, it'll at least probably be a movie that was worth watching.

This should be fun so let's do it.

I'm in, this should be good fun! I also waive the run-time limit for people nominating for me.

If anyone needs help finding a movie link just ask in the thread and I'll try to help.

I'll go and double check my MoFo list and make sure there up to date.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I'm going to check my lists as well. They should be updated, but, yeah, I'm in

The picture I used for the lists is from Mark's profile. It looks like our friend there is ineligible since he's only missing like 3 movies.



Got a perfect one for CR already, one I'm almost sure about for Cricket, and checking Ed's list now.
Ya better check my list in a few hours so far I've found 3 I've seen and I'm still checking.



I've been scouting everyone's list for a while. I'm marking down a couple of possibilities for each in case one is chosen. I'm going to pick my noms after everyone sends theirs, so if I say pick again it won't be because I picked it.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Okay, I'm done checking my list, so it's all set for everyone.
Gonna start looking at others now (except for CR, going to wait on that one lol)

Your fast! My memory is so foggy that a lot of the titles I have to look up and read about. But I'm getting there

UPDATE: I found 6 movies I hadn't crossed of my list and I'm done checking.

I had IMDb oped on another tab to double check films. I think I found about five or so films. Most of them recent.

BYW, HOLY SH#T @cricket!! I had NO IDEA how many of these lists you've [email protected] neared cleared out. Impressive!

I was in Ahwell's profile and I clicked the wrong list button. I was thinking my god he's only 17 and he's seen all these? Then I finally realized I was looking at my lists.



I'm probably going to skip this one. Quickly skimmed through some of my lists and the majority of the unseens don't really interest me. There's also a bunch of older films that I may have seen as a kid but don't remember for sure. If only there'd be a feasibly way to do this without the constraints of those lists

I have 3 good picks for you already

I'll tell you what they were once you're definitely not in

My lists may not be up to date. I haven't been too autistic when clicking them and if I didn't 100% remember seeing the film it's not crossed over.

EDIT: And I'm definitely not in. It's a cool concept but I don't feel like investigating other people's lists when I barely manage to tick my own. And like I said, I don't like how it's restricted to films on those lists but unfortunately, there's probably no feasible way to do this otherwise.

A quick guess for those 3 picks: Angst, Raw and Thirteen?



I really like this idea, but I often have trouble picking out a single film, let alone one for every participant haha.

My memory is so foggy that a lot of the titles I have to look up and read about.
That is exactly my problem for many of the lists that I haven't thoroughly gone through yet. I'm bad with titles, and for certain genres where there are common visuals and/or plot elements (looking at you film noirs ), a quick glance at promotional images or even reading a basic plot summary is not necessarily going to be enough to gauge whether or not I've seen it.

I've also intentionally not crossed off films I know I previously watched if I don't really remember enough about them, since if someone asked me my opinion on one of them, I probably wouldn't be able to give a response without seeing it again.



I usually watch trailers to check if I have already seen a film or not, they seem to jog the memory more than pics or plot summary.
Movies I've watched when I was 'too young', between age 8 and 15, I left open on my lists deliberately.



A quick guess for those 3 picks: Angst, Raw and Thirteen?
I had only gone through 4 of your lists and so far Angst was my 1st choice, followed by The Skin I Live In and Heathers.
