MoFo Movie Roulette

Tools    





I don't know. I kinda want to but on the other hand, I'm in the middle of one of these periods where I don't really watch that many movies (and it takes almost a week to even post to Rate the Last Movie thread about them). I guess it's a nay from me now. If we ever do this again and I'm in a more fitting mood, I'm in but not now.
I'm kind of in the same boat. I'm at a very busy time right now and not watching a lot of film. Sorry if this upends the apple cart for the other participants. On the plus side, this thread introduced me to some pretty fine film.

OK guys, that's cool and I understand.

Question for everyone:
I could just tally the points, divided by the number of movies for each member...and that would yield a comparable overall score for each of us. Then we could say who 'won' and be done. That way everyone is included in this.

The other way is to discount the scores from those who didn't want to continue: (PahaK, Suspect, Dumbear) and continue on. The problem there is some of us would already be finished and others would have more movies to watch.

Which option do you guys like? Majority decides.



Well, there's quite a clear "winner" at the moment, and the amount of votes is almost dead even (only ed has 4 while others have 5). To me, it seems that it's much easier to just tally the points now, and start over at another time (the concept is great).

I’m fine either way. If you calculate a winner now and the game ends, I won’t object. I’m good to continue with it too.

I did see four of them. The fourth was from TUS; Enemy At The Gate which was surprisingly good. I rated it 4 stars. We're just missing his rating of my recommendation; The Dirty Dozen to have four scores.

As for continuing or starting over, since several folks are unable to continue it would probably be fair to declare a winner and begin anew. With, perhaps, a few new players to rebuild our ranks?

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.

In that last post (with green font) I eliminated all review ratings from the members who didn't want to continue: (Pahak, Dumbear and Suspect).

But...I'm thinking it would be easier if we just declare JJ the winner as he has the most points...and you in 2nd place.

Not that winning matters in this, it's all about the great movies we all watched, but that we can start a second round whenever everyone wants.

That's some interesting math right there. Average being higher than any of the values

3.5 + 3.5 + 3.5 + 3 = 13.5, not 16.5.

Don't tell poor Ed that, he was just demoted from 2nd place, to 2nd to last

This falling off the rails is all my fault and I apologize again to everyone. I hope to be more around here again, but I don't see my life slowing down anytime soon.


I am looking for a new job, which hopefully gives me some more free time.

No apologies necessary - life can and will get the better of all of us.
Thank YOU for coming up with this very fun idea!!
