Welcome to the 4th Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame! If you're unfamiliar with how this works, take a look at the links below-

Winner-TheUsualSuspect


Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame: Foreign Language Edition
Winner-Citizen Rules


You must choose movies from the available lists that the other members have not seen. Make sure your lists are filled out and up to date!



If you want to nominate a movie longer than 160 minutes for someone, let me know and I'll ask the person if it's ok. If a member has no time limit restrictions, feel free to mention it in the thread when you sign up.

Normally the due date would add up to 1 week per movie. I will add about 2 weeks to that total to give ample time to finish, but there will be a due date!

Anyone can join, but if you've never completed a Hall of Fame before, you will need to watch 4 of the movies picked for you within 1 month before I post your nominations.

You have until Saturday night July 3rd to join. Once Sunday comes you can start sending me your nominations. I ask that you wait until then so that my inbox doesn't fill up.

Any questions go ahead and ask in the thread. Let's go!

I'm in!

For everyone who joins, when picking a movie for me:
I don't like gratuitous violence or gratuitous sex
, I have to watch these films with my wife and we both don't like extreme, dark disturbing stuff, I hate gore-horror films.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I don't know, I'll have to think about it. . .


OK, I thought about it -- [email protected] YEAH I'm in!! lol

I will go with the time limit though.


***EDIT**



I've been amazed by the "gems" gifted to me, consistently, in this HoF, BUT, if anyone gets stuck, snatch one from the few here at Jab's 2021 Film Challenge.

Could use a bit o' help with that one, too.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer.



Ugh, I'll think about it. I'm currently swamped, but the last one was so full of gems that I have to consider it.

I gotta say that some of the best movies I've seen are from the Personal Recommendations that I've joined. Cricket is a great host and I've enjoyed these more than even the main HoFs!....How's that for a plug



I'll play.

Just a reminder that despite me being a goody-goody rule follower, if someone prominently involved in the making of the film is a know rapist or otherwise abusive trash person, I will not watch the film. Ditto films with unsimulated animal cruelty/death. If you're not sure if a film crosses this boundary for me, please feel free to ask (via Cricket) and I will clarify.

This past year and this summer have been kind of intense, so I'd love a film that you think of as being joyful or beautiful or optimistic. But that is just a thought and if you think the best thing I haven't seen is some soul-rending sob-fest, go for it!

With all the movies you seem to watch, it's surprising how much you have available to choose from.
