Your back-up nom is the better film.



It probably is, but I thought I'd go for the lesser-known one. You know, not being a whore and all that.


Oh yes, not a whore at all Mr. Thing/Das Boot

Psycho is probably the best of the three films in all honesty, as much as TRM winning again is a bit tiresome, but all are worthy entrants into the HOF, and I only wish all rounds were like this.

Hence why I've chosen a film only available on YouTube.

Anyway, Ikiru is telling you to shut the fuck up and go stand in the corner.

Yes, because a low-key Japanese drama is on the same level of whoring as The Fucking Thing.

Low key it may be, but it's still one of the most critically acclaimed films of all time.

So suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure it wasn't a whore vote.

So why did everyone predict Se7en to win if mine was the whore nom?

Because that was equally whoreish.

I think in terms of whoreishness, Ikiru was a high class prostitute working a few times a week for really high rates. Se7en was your mum down the pub at the weekend, waiting for someone to buy her a packet of crisps and then taking them out to the mattress she kept in the back of her van. Just because mine was classier and more high profile, it doesn't mean it was the bigger whore.

The idea of whoring for a win is silly and invented only by annoying hipsters who use the HOF to try and make you watch some obscure 12 hour mining documentary from the 1920s as their choice.

You know who when there's some horrible news story someone on the forums will, usually go "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" or something? You've all made me feel like that now.

I still have no idea what film I'm going to pick for the next HOF.

Is it because Ran's not in the final? I bet it is.

Yeah, not something we'd normally do but if it can save people money renting/buying it, it makes sense to flag it up. Especially as the round ends Wednesday night and hopefully we can start the next one Thursday. Depending on the swiftness of the counters.

Can we just say Jaws has won and get the next one started?

I like Jaws, but both Psycho and Taxi Driver are much better. Hopefully one of those will win.

Just popping in to say that if mine does happen to win, use my essay as the, um, essay in the main thread.

It totally should win.

Psycho isn't even Hitchcock's best film.

Jaws isn't even Spielberg's best film.

Taxi Driver IS Scorsese's best film.
