Welcome to the 6th Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame! If you're unfamiliar with how this works, take a look at the links below-

Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame: Foreign Language Edition
Winner-Citizen Rules

Personal Recommendation Hall of Fame IV
Winner-Hey Fredrick

Personal Recommended Hall of Fame V: Comedy Edition
Winner-Citizen Rules

You must choose movies from the available lists that the other members have not seen. Make sure your lists are filled out and up to date!

There is no runtime limit for nominations. However, any member can refuse to watch any movie over 3 hours long for any reason, and get a replacement nomination.

Normally the due date would add up to 1 week per movie. I will add about 2 weeks to that total to give ample time to finish, but there will be a due date!

Anyone can join, but if you've never completed a Hall of Fame before, you will need to watch 4 of the movies picked for you within 2 weeks before I post your nominations.

You have until Thursday night 8/18 to join. Once Friday comes you can start sending me your nominations. I ask that you wait until then so that my inbox doesn't fill up.

Any questions go ahead and ask in the thread. Let's go!

The deadline to join is Thursday 11pm EDT. There are no late joiners for this HoF!

1 hour later at midnight you can start sending your nominations. The sooner you get them in, the less likely you'll have to pick over.

If I get everyone's noms Friday, I should have them up Saturday.

The trick is not minding
To help people with their selection, I don’t have any real preference. I like all sorts of films and genres.

If you want any hints, look at foreign films (cannes, Elbert’s greatest, Oscar for foreign film, and the more recent foreign film countdown), westerns (BFI and our own countdown), horror, Sci Fi, Noir (BFI list), and also both of the comedy lists.

But feel free to pick anything you think I should watch. I plan on 100% completion on all of the lists eventually.

Make sure all of your lists are updated!

Also, no secrets necessary, unless you want them. Feel free to discuss with people what you chose for them, before or after they watch it.

The world doesn't owe you a damn thing
Totally in!

I would like to option the Less than 3-hour limit, please.

10 Foreign Language movies to go
I'm up for this - for my nominations, I prefer films that have been released by Criterion, so extra points for choosing one of those for me.
My movie ratings often go up or down a point or two after more reflection, research and rewatches.

For my nominations, I prefer R rated musical thrillers featuring kittens and babies, longer than 87 minutes, but less than 257 minutes, preferably in technicolor with a jazz score and nominated for no less than seven Oscars. I feel that is a reasonable thing to ask.

There's been a few of those, but for me you really can't go past The Swingin' Swayin' Baby-Makin' Pet Shop of Love - but be warned, there's a LOT of sex in it.
