"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."



I also only have Farewell My Concubine to go. I think the runtime might be what's keeping it at the back of the queue, but it will the freshest on everybody's mind, so it might help it out.



I remember that I sent my list a month ago after I watched the whole 12 nominated movies over the course of a single weekend. I have ranked the 12 movies and I don't plan to change the ranking in the next rounds.

Sounds good.



Just a little mini-announcement. After we finish this hall of fame, I think the hall of fame will be on hiatus for a short while. At least until we finish up that big tournament. I still think the hall of fame is a good thing, but I have sort of fallen in love with the tournament format.

I dig it



Why not have a Hall-o-Fame tournament? Just a suggestion.
I think we can consider that huge tournament I am running as a hall of fame tournament. I could keep running them like that if all goes well. As of right now, I have more interest in them that way.



28 days...6 hours...42 minutes...12 seconds
That giant film tournament you are running...all the films were nominated by a handful of people, whereas this is more organized and seems more legit.

I'm not going to bother with the other tournament because it doesn't represent what a tournament should be, in my opinion. How can be be a mega movie tournament when you are only getting the tastes of 12 or so members. No noms from Yoda, Mark f or Holden, three of the biggest members here whose film tastes mean a heck of a lot.

Again, my opinion, but a mistake.

True. It also won't work because of some small unknown films that nobody ever watched except a handful of people. The tournament could be decided by one small film that only 2 persons saw and that possibly could become the winner of a MoFo tournament. It's just ridiculous, in my opinion. The system works maybe with 32 movies, but not with 256.

I find this Hall of Fame formula very charming and intimate and it's really regretful that you're shying away from it, Jiraf.



I'll still handle the running of it, but I just won't participate in it. I just like the tournament concept, as it allows me to see more films. That's all I really care about to be honest.

Since when can't you see films on your own without a tournament?
This tournament is so much fun, because it's like a small movie club that watches 12 films together and then discusses/rates those pictures after 3 months.

I am a really big pushover. Okay, hall of fame is back on.



I'll just be abrupt here and say Valley of the Wind is one of the worst films I've ever seen. I mean I was somewhat underwhelmed by Spirited Way and especially hated the ending, but Atleast I felt the beauty in animation. This was just a highly polished turd honest to god. It's a children's fairy tale and if I watched this when I was five I'd still say it's crap. It was torture to watch this to the end, I mean watching baby first programming makes me less awed at how bad it is. Well I'm done with seeing all the films, just gotta do a few repeat viewings now.

Don't Worry. I bet Gua will prove you wrong by writing the 100th pean in the name of this flawless masterpiece. Have to finally watch it myself.

If Tokyo critics like it, it's blasphemy to hate it.

and no you really don't need to watch it. If you missed out on it when you were 8 it's to late now.
