24th Hall of Fame

Tools    





So everyone nominates a film. We all watch all the films and then send in a ranked list to the host. A winner is declared based on the same scoring system as our countdown lists

As you watch you post in the thread what you have watched and some thoughts about the film. Generally the host makes the deadline giving a week for the number of films.



I'm not speaking for Raul, but I just don't think he's around right now. He can clarify if I missed something. Usually the general HOF are pretty straightforward. The specialty ones can get bogged down in some minutiae as far as nominations go but are very fun as well.



As for the rules, they will remain to be pretty much what they have been. No films over 280 minutes please. Please join with the intention of watching every movie.

I'll give everyone until Jan 1 to decide on a nomination. Then I will unveil. I will take last minute nominations after the unveil if people are interested in joining after seeing what was nominated.

Please try to watch everything again, unless you've seen it super recently. It just makes the process run more smoothly.

Lastly, we can help each other out by finding sources for our noms to make it easier on everybody. Look forward to it!

Please PM your nomination once you think of it!
I'm not speaking for Rauldc14 either, he's the host and a cool one too!

Raul did say we'd use the usually rules (which of course if you've never joined that doesn't help much.) So here's what generally happens in an HoF:

Movie Nominations:
Any movie under 280 minutes can be nominated, except for previous HoF winners.

PM Rauldc14 your nominations Keep your nomination a secret until the unveiling of the films on January 1st

Length of HoF: Usually 1 week per movie nominated. So if there's 10 members, there's 10 movies and the length of the HoF is 10 weeks. (plenty of movie watching time)

During the HoF
: Everyone watches the nominated movies and discusses them in this thread.

*We're not allowed at MoFo to post illegal movie links, we PM each other for that but usually everything can be found from legit sources.



Here's a really long list! of all the past HoF winners, so these movies can't be nominated again.

Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
One last question: Are we supposed to nominate films we've already seen, or can we nominate films we haven't watched yet?
Either way works.
You can nominate something you love or something you've been wanting to see and haven't yet. (known as a "blind grab"). The very first Hall of Fame I joined in on I did a Blind Grab and have now and again.
VERY COOL to have ya all join in!!

Obviously I'm in as well. Sending my nom in now.
__________________
- 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.



So here is a question: there are some films that I just will not watch, on principle or for emotional wellness reasons or both.

For example, I do not watch Polanski films. I do not watch films that include real animal cruelty.

Can I still participate knowing that there may be one or two films I will not/may not see? How do you handle your final ranking if there are films you have not seen?

I think the host: Raul, should address that one.

But Raul did say this in the 1st post:
I will take last minute nominations after the unveil if people are interested in joining after seeing what was nominated.
So you could pick out your movie, but wait until after all the movie noms are revealed and then decide if you want to still join or not, based on what the movies are.

Highly unlikely you are going to see a Polanski film in the nom pool...most of the time people tend to pick newer films or ones by famous auteurs.


Now with that said certain people will nominate controversial and gross films in which case if you do decide to drop out let us know early.


Good to know about Polanski so out of respect I won't nominate this film






Seems like a pretty cool idea. I guess I'm in.

@rauldc14

I may be in after I see all the first set of nominations.. however, if I join, @MovieMeditation has to join as I got a movie for him!

Rauldc14 Im going to send you my nomination and after I see all the noms, I will let you know if Im in or not.



I skimmed the last 12 pages of Rate The Last Movie You Saw and copied the names of newer members who seemed active, of course anyone can join.

Let's see if some of our newest members will join the fun
@SpelingError @Captain Terror @Thief @Jinnistan @WHITBISSELL! @Torgo @Wooley @John W Constantine @crumbsroom @Rockatansky @Takoma11

HoFs (Hall of Fames) are a HUGE thing here at MoFo. They help to shape upcoming MoFo Top 100 Countdowns and are a great way to join in and share a movie you love. And if your movie nomination receives the most points it will then be added to MoFos Hall of Fame Archives
you forgot @LordWhis

Who would do such a thing?



Who would do such a thing?
You!

For HOF, I was told certain films and directors are out...

I cant nominate a Tinto Brass film



The trick is not minding

This is a fair warning, and One I think should be easy enough to follow for most. Especially when one considers the amount of film available.
If it is, and you find a particular film triggering, you can opt out.
There are always other HOF.
Thatís said, welcome aboard.
