I never even thought of that when I nominated - it just doesn't feel that excessive a running time to me.

Certainly shorter than it took me to reword that last bit to avoid 'oo er missus' and sig quotes



It's the same with all films I think, if you're into it then a four hour run time will fly by. If you hate it then 90 minutes will feel like days.

War Horse felt like a lifetime.

I have about three films in mind for HOF 15. It's tough picking just one, but I suppose I have about three to four months to make my mind up.


We're going to be asking for people to put in for a long-term slot soon. This round would have been The Prof's last turn as a long-termer, but he had to bow out, so we've got a slot going if you want to put your name in.

looking forward to watching all the films nominated. I've only seen moju & the shout, and yup, i've never seen Casablanca (is that the "here's looking at you kid" film?)

From first look the films that interest me are Eureka, The Fallen Idol, The Hour-Glass Sanitorium and Punishment Park.

Public vote is open to anyone - not that many of the non-participants sit down and watch the film though.

THe latter is quite odd - I don't know why rental places would get rid of their old copy just because there was a new one-  but the new one is out and rental places normally stock Eureka? I checked another of their dual formats though and Tesco are only showing it as Blu Ray, another shows as both, another shows as the old release with nothing on the new one. Really variable.



Eureka have pulled their rental service from Lovefilm completely. I imagine there have tried to do the same with the others as well, so you will be lucky to get it that way from now on. It happened around the start of the last HoF.

Casablanca: Still a brilliant film and there's a classic line drinking game in there for sure. I suppose my only gripe about it is that I don't actually buy the relationship between Rick and Ilsa. There's just something lacking in the chemistry between the two leads. Claude Rains is excellent however and there is an impressive array of Fezzi on display throughout. Also, Mr Reb now wants a zebra print tie.


Also, just updating the HOF thread there and there are a lot of winners lacking an extended essay. Are people still up for doing that? It seems a shame to have some great films go without a proper write up.

I agree - I rewatched it yesterday, and for such a classic romance, it seems oddly stilted and passionless. Compared to the couples in all the other big romantic films of that era, they do seem lack something.

However, the whole film is worth it because of the La Marseillaise scene. And both Claude Rains and the script are fantastic - it's amazing to think how many famous lines come from the one film. Great film.

Apologies. I was pretty drunk last night on account of it being the Superbowl, but my drunkenness seems to have had a bit of a mean streak. I think I gave off at Homer for use of hash tags in his Top 100 list too.

I've decided to put all the theme rounds at the end of the list and filter the normals in between so they stay in the right numerical order you see.

Tunes of Glory: A fantastic film and a phenomenal performance from Guinness. Only a few films in, but this will really take some beating. And chosen by Gimli of all people. That dwarf really is a monkey puzzler.

So many great performances in it, it's sad it just got into the top 100 of the British films list. Gimli had the highest vote for it then too (with mine, Harry Lime's and Rick's to add to it). Apparently Mills/Guinness were originally cast the other way round.

It prompted me to look up Denis Price after spending the entire film wondering what else I've seen him in. Turns out the answer is LOADS. Incredibly sad life too.

His 'Iago' in this is very much one of my favourite performances. And, even leaving the context aside, he's bloody superb in Victim.

His 'n' Hers: Not much of a fan I'm afraid. I admire the style and the editing, and I like some of the observations from the elderly women, but women talking about men has to be one of the most boring subject matters on the planet - I bore myself when I do it, have limited tolerance for when my family and friends do it and to have to listen to 80 minutes of women I've never met do it, is really not my idea of entertaining cinema.

Pretty much exactly this. Using this method for the first few decades made it seem like the sole concern of any woman was her man and she had no concept of any independent life or work or anything other than sitting around talking about 'her man'. It got me pissed off enough to switch off for a while.

SPOILER

After he died it was much better. The focus more on the difficulties of getting older made it a more bearable watch.
