The MoFo Musical Countdown - Group Watch

→ in
Tools    







For the third time during a MoFo countdown, we're going to be having a Group Watch thread! Here's how this thread will work:

-The host will nominate a musical, the participants will have 3 days to watch it, and to state that they watched the film in the thread (make sure your nomination doesn't last over four hours).

-You're not required to review the film. You can if you want to, but simply writing something like "I just watched XX and really enjoyed it" should suffice.

-Afterwards, the host will use a random number generator to pick the next person to nominate a film (provided the person watched your nomination and hasn't nominated a film yet) and the process would repeat.

-This thread will last till the deadline for the preliminary thread (or close to it).

-You can opt-in/opt-out of this thread whenever you want. You're not required to watch every film in this thread just because you watched one film in it.

In short, this is similar to a Hall of Fame, except it requires far less effort.

I'm sure many of us will be voting for some obscure films which not many MoFos have seen, so participating in this thread might be a good way to increase the likelihood of your film making the countdown.

I'm not playing or anything but Le million is a very good film and you ought to watch it.



Trouble with a capital "T"
This is one which Citizen Rules hasn't seen, so I'm curious what he'll think of it.
Sounds good, I like French films. I'll try to watch it on the 2nd. Friday and Saturday night are Beach movies at the Rules house.

I think that when it comes to musicals even the well known, but older musicals are obscure to the majority of the MoFos. I'll have to check everyone's MoFo list section to see what they've watched.



I just finished watching Le Million on the Criterion Channel. I hadn't heard of this before, but I liked it. It's a charming and enjoyable musical. Good nomination.



So roughly what time EST and day, will the first round end?
Maybe around 9 to 10 PM EST, but if I'm a bit late to posting a film for a particular round, I'll be happy to extend it to 11 or 12 to be fair to the nomination. My advice would be to try and post your thoughts in this thread by late afternoon/early evening EST for each deadline to be on the safe side.

So just to confirm that would be around 9 to 10 PM EST on Sunday?



Trouble with a capital "T"
For this round, yes. Each film will be up for three days though.
No problem, I'll just watch the selection tonight and that will then give me Sunday morning to write up a little something. I just didn't want to miss out
