Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Light up, grab your gun, pull your fedora down low and get out your favorite trench coat --



It's NOIR time, baybee!!

- This is one of those films where I liked it on first viewing but I feel like watching it again might actually make me dislike it, but that's pretentious existentialism for you.



I've got another couple films I want to watch before deciding on a nomination, but I'm definitely in. I'll watch one of the films later this afternoon, and the other either this evening or tomorrow morning, so I should have one chosen before tomorrow evening.

Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself haha.

Sounds good...happy noir nomination candidate film watching



Maybe Pahak, Neiba, suspect, frightened inmate,or hey Frederick night also be interested?
Neiba already joined...But let's tag the rest and see: @pahaK @TheUsualSuspect @Hey Fredrick

I forget how to tag Inmate, so I'll just give him a PM

I was considering this but when trying to think of an actual nomination I realized I haven't seen almost any of the classical noirs and I'm somewhat at a loss what counts as neo-noir (the list on Wiki has lots of very odd films that aren't listed as neo-noir in their Wiki pages, and IMDb doesn't even have a genre tag for neo-noir).

So, I probably will skip this one (and the musical, too). I'll check the noms after the reveal and if they look really interesting I may try to figure something out.

People can still join after the reveal, like we've done in past HoFs.
