26th Hall of Fame

Tools    







Welcome to the 26th Hall of Fame!

In case you're new to Hall of Fames and don't know how they work, here are the rules:

1) Everyone who wants to join must state they're joining in this thread and then nominate a film by sending it to me via Private Message. Do not reveal your nomination in the thread! If you wish to join, let me know by September 13th. That will be the loose deadline for this thread, meaning that I'll post all the nominations and you can begin watching and reviewing the films, though you'll still have another week to join this thread before the deadline to join officially arrives (which will be on September 20th, btw).

2) Don't nominate a film which has won a prior Hall of Fame (go to "Movie HALL of FAME Archives & Info" for info on which films have won in the past). Also, your nomination has to be under four hours long.

3) Everyone who joins must watch and review all the films nominated for this thread. You don't have to post a full, elaborate review in this thread for each film, but you do need to say something about each film (write at least a decently sized paragraph for each film and you should be good).

4) The amount of time you have to watch and review all the films for this thread is approximately one week for each film. I'll add a couple extra weeks to account for anyone who may fall behind, but I recommend staying on schedule. Once I get a tally of everyone who's in this thread, I'll put up a deadline for when you have to finish everything by.

5) Once you finish watching and reviewing all of the nominations, PM me with a ranked list (where #1 is your favorite film) of all the films nominated for this thread. The films will be scored based on where they ranked on everyone's lists, with the final reveal happening after everyone has submitted a list.

For example, if your ballot looks like this:

1) Vertigo (1958)
2) Barry Lyndon (1975)
3) Schindler's List (1993)

Vertigo would get 3 points, Barry Lyndon would get 2 points, and Schindler's List would get 1 point. The film which gets the most points wins, the film which gets the second most points will be in 2nd place, and so on.

Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough
Btw, jiraffejustin is in as well.
Spoiler alert. I was planning a pro wrestling thing where the match starts and then all of a sudden the lights go out and my music hits and the crowd goes wild. Then I come in and my nom places like 5th.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I'm in!

I won't be able to do this one. Hopefully, I can do the next one or the one after that. Have fun, everybody.
Good, I don't even want you around here anyways!

Jk, you're awesome. Hope to see in the next one



Quick question: Somebody nominated a mini series which meets the 4-hour limit, but I'm not sure if that would be allowed here. Would that one work?

That would be up to the individual host of the HoF. Sounds like you mean the 25th HoF which I'm hosting so my answer would be no mini series as we've always done movies. BUT if it's been released on DVD or a streaming service (Amazon, Netflix, etc) as a movie and not a three part series, then it would be eligible. Hope that makes sense.

I think there is actually precedent for this situation. This is all based on memory of a controversy in a hof that I didn't actually participate in, but if I remember correctly, Guaporense nominated an anime miniseries thing and it was allowed, but only because he didn't tell anybody it was a series until after it already started. Then mostly everybody else hated it, partially because it was a series. I think there might have been conversations about not allowing miniseries in future hofs, but ultimately the rules usually end up being set by whoever hosts the thing. Like I said, this is all based on memory from events from probably 6-7 years ago.

It's your call, precedent was set with World on a Wire which has been nominated in Person Rec threads.
