And the winner is



Jaws.

Congrats to Reb' on her first HoF win. One of the few decent Spielberg films.

Well done, Reb. Brilliant film and a worthy winner from a great round. Fuck the hipsters.

Obvious winner is obvious.

It is a great film though, hence the obviousness of the win. If Spielberg had carried on making films of this calibre he could have made a name for himself

Brazil and Taxi Driver are better though

Great film - well done Reb.

Wish it had been Brazil though.

Does this mean we're gonna need a bigger hall?

Can I ask which came second?

I was truly shocked that Ran didn't even make the final 3. For me, in a very strong round, that is the outstanding film. The only explanation to me would be that its one of those films you have to watch several times to get the full impact.

I'm afraid that I'm not such a fan of Jaws. It is a worthy winner. Its bite marks have not just been left on the film industry, but also the seaside tourist industry And it has some great scenes. But it also has scenes of a distinctly rubber looking shark that just destroy the illusion for me.

Taxi Driver I like. I have no problem with film being destructive. The only issue I'd have is that a film that prides itself on its psychological study doesn't, imo, have half the psychology that Ran oozes form every pore.

Of the final 3, Psycho would have been my choice.

Ran didn't even make the final 6. Prof', have you seen the thread about the next theme HoF? Might be up your street.

Btw, TRM, when you read this, did I ever tell you how many points Jaws beat Psycho by?

Honestly I'm befuddled. Its one of the most rounded and brilliant movies ever made that doesn't just look awesome on the screen but is played with incredible balance and detail. I want to go and watch it right now.

I look forward to following the next HoF. Sadly I just feel I travel too much and when I'm home am stuck watching the latest romcom or 2nd rate action movie to take part and be able to guarantee that I'll have the space to watch all the films in case I've not seen any. Besides I'd never be able to decide what to nominate (especially as I just realised that The Trial would miss the cut)

I blame Gimli.

Well if you change your mind, there's plenty of time to sign up.
