Is Van Helsing the most hated film ever to take part in HoF?

Sadly, it'll still get more votes than My Little Eye did.

Van Helsing has one more vote than Midnight Run.

I have now lost all faith in humanity.

'course not. We've had Annie Hall. And Jules et Jim. And La Strada. And others.

Although that nauseating heaven sequence does take some beating I'd admit.

Just had a little check to see how many votes we've got.

Somebody called Don has emailed us.

He's not offering us his votes.

Except Taxi Driver has the edge over Van Helsing by 9%.

It would basically be brilliant if everyone used Van Helsing as a buffer by putting it in second behind their own choice, and it got through.

Stone the crows, I'm so insanely behind.

I basically went on an impromptu holiday for the past week so have only just returned to the internet - I'll get done by Wednesday.

Watched He Who Gets Slapped today.

It's the only bit of Chaney I've seen (I think) - he was fantastic. The scene when he recognised the Baron whilst performing was stunning - it was so uncomfortable but gripping. Really, really, really enjoyed it.

I've got 2 films left to watch, He Who Gets Slapped and Peeping Tom. The reason they're still unwatched is that my internet connection hasn't been behaving well enough at home to be able to stream anything. Oddly enough this shit connection started happening the day after I started the ball rolling to switch to another ISP.

I'll get them watched by Sunday somehow though, even if it means coming into an empty office at work and watching them here.

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.

Sent my votes.

Van Helsing aside this has been a good round. Putting them in order of preference was quite tricky.

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.

I've still got 3 to go (my excuse is the same as my previous one - impromptu trip away), but will try and get them done tomorrow and Monday.

Ok cool.

I'm still having hassle with my internet connection. Browsing is fine, downloading is as well (to an extent) but streaming is out of the question for some fucked up reason. If the streaming issue hasn't resolved itself (unlikely) then I'll have to see if I can't download a copy of Peeping Tom from somewhere.

I'll do my utmost to get my votes in by the end of the day.

Some very fine films in the list, and a couple that I just cannot bear, but Ran is the only bona fide masterpiece.
