Hmm I liked a lot of the films this time round but I didn’t love them, I know they’re good films but I’m looking forward to the next round and some of the more individual choices. [:)]

When does my final blurb have to be in?




rawlinson -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 11:41:56 AM)

Final blurb. Can you get it in by next weekend?




rawlinson -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 12:34:44 PM)

Ok, checked with Matty and we're waiting on votes from Homer, MA and Paul. Any idea how long you'll need to finish up, guys?




MovieAddict247 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 1:35:24 PM)

I've only got Ran to watch. However, my copy was scratched (curse the library) so I'm now looking for one online to watch - I have found one but it's gone all slow so I may look for another. But I should be done by this evening!




rawlinson -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 1:37:13 PM)

Do you use Lovefilm? You can watch it as part of the package there.




MovieAddict247 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 1:43:36 PM)

I did have LoveFilm but stopped it - student finances weren't feeling good back in June. Normally I can find most films in the university library (which has the added bonus of being free), or the one back at home - or I search the web desperately when I'm feeling lazy.

Just found a subbed, decent quality version anyway, so I'll get my votes once I've watched it.

You ever thought of taking part in this, Sieg?


It's one that's passed me by up till now, but yes, I'd like to give it a go.

Ran....hmmm, I've been thinking about this since watching it. It looked stunning - colours, costume, location were all gorgeous. Music was good. The story was good. The performances were all very good. Yet it's the type of film I'd rate highly as an excellently made film, but I couldn't get into it. For some reason (possibly the fact I'm having a bad day), it just didn't grab my attention.




MovieAddict247 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (1/10/2012 11:08:53 PM)

Oh shoot, ignore that first set of votes! I had to swap a couple - new votes sent.




matty_b -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (2/10/2012 7:46:11 AM)

Got 'em, thanks.

Just two to go...

We've just filled up the slots for the next round, but there'll be quite a few open for the round after. One of us can drop you a pm and let you know when we're signing up for that if you like?

I struggled a bit with Ran on first viewing. I was really enjoying it till a certain point which I thought was absolutely ruined by overacting. It's a pretty damn important scene as well so it really effected my overall opinion of the film. I watched it again a few days later and enjoyed it much more 2nd time around. I still think the scene in question is a touch on the dodgy side but it didn't stop me giving it full marks.




Gimli The Dwarf -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (2/10/2012 1:50:04 PM)

What scene?




Harry Tuttle -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (2/10/2012 1:58:07 PM)

SPOILERS OBVS.




Saburo's death and Hidetora's grief and subsequent death. I found it totally unconvincing, massively overacted and really jarring on my first viewing. It totally dragged me kicking and screaming out of the film and actually made me laugh, which I assume was not the intended reaction. On my 2nd viewing I just found it jarring and it didn't bother me as much. I can't help but feel I'm missed out on the intended impact of the scene but the rest of the film is so stunning I can live with it.

Blimey but He Who Gets Slapped is a bit shit, isn't it?

rawlinson will confirm this, but I'm pretty sure hubu has dropped out and I think if that happens you're not beholden to watch the film that the dropped person nominated.

I think so anyway, best wait for him to confirm.


Yeah, we started it with Casablanca a few rounds back, nothing against the nominator in any of these cases, but if someone isn't able to take part then we're removing the film.


Knew I should have visited this thread more often. He Who Gets Slapped was the one I had left that had never gotten round to. I could have saved myself 70minutes of crap film. Ah well.

I can't even remember that scene [:D]

Do you think one of the Mods can change Homer's av to this and prevent him from changing it back? [:D]

I've been wanting to use that for weeks but didn't want to maybe spoil the film for anyone.

You didn't want to spoil the film called He Who Gets Slapped with a gif showing a person who gets slapped...?

elab49 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (4/10/2012 12:00:29 PM)

O/T but since you're both there - Homer/Harry, can I ask how you're doing with your Eurovision viewing? [:)]




homersimpson_esq -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (4/10/2012 12:03:49 PM)

Eurovis......oh.


Shit.


Um.




elab49 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (4/10/2012 12:10:22 PM)

There's a doodle link in the thread if you've got a rough idea of where you are [:D]

Yeah this [:D]

I've watched 5 or 6 I think. My film viewing has come to a complete standstill at the moment. It's gaming season and I've got my teeth into a pretty expansive RPG (Borderlands 2) so it's going to be gaming season for a while. September through to December is nearly always the same (last year it was Skyrim albeit slightly later in the year).

I'll try my best to get them watched though, seeing as I did say I would [:D]




elab49 -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (4/10/2012 12:32:29 PM)

Cheers Harry, that'd be great [:)]

We've got a few people finished and a few people getting there just now.

Aaaand - back to normal, thank you for letting me borrow the thread.




rawlinson -> RE: Hall of Fame 15: The Whore of Fame (5/10/2012 12:20:44 PM)

Who has what left to watch, guys? We're about two weeks past the original deadline now.
