Russian Language Hall of Fame

Tools    





If I've PM'ed you, you can join up. Otherwise we are going to stick with the confirmed members. I'm down for this being a super-small hof, but with Russian language films, we could get some long ones. (If you nominate War and Peace.... well, we could be here for awhile.)

I need the nominations from everybody except @neiba

@Camo
@rauldc14
@CosmicRunaway
@TokeZa

@cat_sidhe if you think you can swing it and are down, I'd love to have you. Don't join up if you don't think it'll be fun though.

If @cricket or @Citizen Rules are interested, they are very welcome to join up.

Same goes for @seanc if he changes his mind, same goes for @Swan. If you are interested in this and I didn't PM you, you might be able to join up depending on numbers. PM if you think you might want to join.

Deadline is fluid. Like my gender. As long as every member checks in and gives a steady progress report, we'll be good.

@jiraffejustin i rounded up the reviews throughout the thread if you want to put them in a post, if not i'd be willing to maintain a post with them by editing one of mine on the first page. The size of the thread so far probably means it doesn't matter much but it could be useful in the future if people are looking for their reviews.

Hopefully someone nominates what I was going to. Went blind on this one.



I have a couple of films in mind but I haven't actually seen any of them in their entirety, since I'd only caught half on tv ages ago, or caught parts of what the Russian society was screening at University (since they shared a room with the German society I was part of). So I might be going with a half-blind nomination if I don't have time to watch either of them today haha.



I've watched Stalker and Cranes Are Flying but they could do with a rewatch, haven't seen Raul's one.

I'm planning on watching Leviathan either tonight or tomorrow, will i wait for all the noms to be in before posting my review?



The thing isolated becomes incomprehensible
Only watched Stalker from all those (including my own nom, which was a blind one), and I'll probably rewatch it. This is starting to feel a epic but heavy HoF! Bring it on!
