I'd vote for Howard the Duck. Most whore-ish ever, something everyone loves. Life of Brian, something like that.

Raiders or Jaws (which I can see winning this at a canter).

I've got a couple of whorey films up my sleeve for next time I take part

I should say that I really liked Brazil, Harry.

Usually me and Terry Gilliam's films don't quite gel (although I really like Twelve Monkeys) but Brazil was an interesting watch.

Trouble is that what's whorey depends on who the voters are. Take The Room for example, crashed and burned when Paul nominated it, but if he'd nominated with a different voter group it could have got to the final. Or when Miles nominated Lawrence of Arabia, seemed the most obvious winner ever, got beaten by If....

I wanted to reduce Paul to a bloody, heaving pulp after watching The Room. Not only was it bad, it was boring.

Cool. I dug Midnight Run a lot more than I expected to as well. I'd seen, and enjoyed it, before but it was a long time ago and I didn't expect it to hold up as well as it did. Grodin is immense in it and Farina is really convincing as a Psycho Gangsta. I had it ahead of a couple of films that made round 2 I think.

Yay, we're having a circle jerk

I spent ages making it to the final and then never winning. Horrible, isn't it? You can't predict these things though, before feedback started coming in, I thought the final would be Ran, Taxi Driver and Jaws.


Indeed. Like when if.... beat Lawrence of Arabia. What a great moment that was for the forum.

You'd be better off switching to Brazil and help me win my first HoF.

Plus it's a better film anyway .

Jaws is the 5th best film on the original list with Brazil being 1st.

Placing 1st is better than placing 5th ergo Brazil is the better film.

You can't argue with mathematics .

Ok, got a deadline for you. Going to close this Friday midnight. I think all but three have said on thread that they've sent fresh votes, so if anyone who hasn't voted yet does want to change their votes, do so by Friday midnight. As we haven't had a poll set up for this round we'll follow Matty's suggestion and base the public vote on first round placings. Anyone who is in the next HoF, can you get blurbs to us by the end of the weekend, please?

Bugger off. This is tactical. If we go by my votes from R1 than I'll be giving Taxi Driver 2 points. It won't make a blind bit of difference but it'll make me feel better

Yep. MAnaged to get things sorted a lot quicker than I thought, so once I iron out a few creases with the PC, I'll be back on a regular basis.
