The 33rd Hall of Fame
All are welcome!

So many great movies out there to choose from. From obscure favourites, to all-time classics, every Hall of Fame throws up interested and varied films for us to either check out for the first time or watch again - there are literally 1000s of candidates out there!

Just PM me the name of the movie you want to nominate (after checking here to make sure it hasn't won a previous Hall of Fame) and in around a week from now I'll reveal the list of films we're about to discuss, review and vote on.

Rules of Participation:  



I'll extend the deadline on this Hall of Fame seeing as the Noir and Neo Noir Countdowns are about to commence, and will take up some of our time over the coming weeks - so no need to worry about being too busy. There's plenty of time to settle the competition between the selected movies. I'll keep who nominated what anonymous until the end, but everyone is free to put their hand up and say "I nominated this or that movie". Please, keep debate, but don't argue.

Let's make this the best Hall of Fame we've ever had! Or at the very least the second best!


DEADLINE : MAY 31st

Please note : I'm operating under Australian Western Standard Time, which will feel a little unusual compared to other hosts. If you ever want to quickly check how it compares, then :

If you're on the West Coast of the U.S.A. add 15 hours
If you're on the East Coast of the U.S.A. add 12 hours
If you're in the U.K. add 7 hours

"Where's PHOENIX?" - He's probably sleeping.

I will probably stay in the sidelines, what with the Neo-noir countdown and countless other stuffs going on in my life... but who knows? I will check the reveals.

I'm going to add a couple of weeks to the deadline because of the Countdowns, which many of us will be busy with (and which will dominate CR's and your time completely) - so I'm hoping that won't be an issue for many people.

Thanks Phoenix. For me the countdown won't cut into my HoF time because my HoF watching will just take place during my usual relaxation movie watching period...Movie and dinner time that is, because the kitchen table never gets used!



I watch less when me and wifey are getting along and we've been getting along, plus Celtics and work.
TV series and sports then? I hope you're not working three jobs, yikes! Hope you join the HoF.



Leaning towards yes, if I can find something worthy enough for all you cinephiles.
That's been my thought for the last few days. Guess I've come in last or next to last enough So gotta think hard on a good nom.

My regular job is Tues thru Fri but I usually get home around 2-230. I work part time Fri, Sat, and Sun but just 2 1/2 hours per night. Don't actually need it but it's very much worth it. Another reason I don't watch as many movies now is because I go to sleep when I'm tired. I start at 5am so I try to be in bed 10-1030



Women will be your undoing, Pépé
looks like I'm in. Going with one I haven't seen since I was a kid. Should be a blast.
