An excellent film, really deserving. Congrats to MovieAddict, sorry to the rest of you, and thanks everyone for taking part. We'll be starting the noir round as soon as we can.

Congrats to Movieaddict. 

I checked the Hof List to see where I'd rank this - I think the films are out of order? I can't remember if Apartment was Hof 2 or 3, but I'm pretty sure Chinatown was Hof 1 (and, I seem to recall, up against Seven Samurai and a Welles - maybe Kane?)

Yay!!!

I really enjoyed taking part - some of the films were fantastic, and even the ones that weren't, I did enjoy watching (it's great seeing a film I'd never have chosen to watch - let alone heard of in many cases - I feel more cultured!).

It might help you (or drive you nuts) to know that Eureka was in second place, and only 2 points behind.

And yeah, it should be Chinatown - Apartment - Sunrise - Rear Window, but when you scroll down the thread, they are in order for the rest of it, it's just that first post is out of order.

If you feel like taking part again, we're going to be asking people to sign up for round 15 once we have the noir round up and running.

Why would you do that? Why??!

Assassination was, sadly, my bottom choice. I'm really pleased Eureka was so well received, though. And if the Brit list is re-run I'm looking forward to bumps for Tunes of Glory, The Shout and Fallen Idol.

Either

1. I'm nice, and I was reassuring you that Eureka was well received after everyone dreading watching it. And the fact that it was that close to the win would be comforting.

2. I'm just evil.

Or even both 

It is nice especially given, as you say, the jokes up front about the length and the fact everyone seemed to leave it to last.

I'd love to - I'll do my best to pick something less....whorey (is that a word?)

Opposite for me - Eureka was my bottom choice. It's odd, cos they're relatively similar films - beautiful, quiet, subtle and really long.

I've been there, Long Distance Runner was about 4 points behind M. Could have killed TRM.

It is. It describes any winning HoF nomination.

Yikes, that was a difficult one. I'm afraid I'd have thrown my points at TRM, though.

Well done Movie Addict, even if I did place the film last in my final round vote.

Also, the HOF thread is now all tidied and up to date.

Well done Movie Addict. I honestly didn't think TAOJJBTCRF would win (probably because I found it beautiful, but tedious.)

I think this was the third best film for me in the round, but still a worthy winner.

I really didn't get chance to check out many of the movies from this round. I'm looking forward to watching Eureka.

Congrats to the winner. I've only seen the film once, so it might be time for me to give it a re-watch and see if my feeling on the film has changed.
