TAS needs to watch more movies. He's been slacking for awhile now. He needs to be entertained, to be enriched.
Here's how this competition works:
1) you will submit a list of 6 films for me to watch
2) i will watch them and score them on my patented 0-10 scale
3) high score wins the prize (there is no prize)
To prevent anyone from just recommending any 6 films in the world to torture me, I will instill the following loose rules:
a) At least one film must be a IMDB top 250 film (to ensure I'm watching quality well-known films).
b) At least one film must be pre-1970 (I need more old cinema).
c) At least one film must come from a top director. We will use TSPDT as the reference point for the best, let's say a film from any of the top 20: http://www.theyshootpictures.com/gf1000 ... ectors.htm
d) Along the same lines, at least one film from a top actor. To simplify eligiblity, any actor/actress from the 1999 AFI list: http://www.afi.com/100years/stars.aspx
e) And finally, since it's a TAS thread, I demand that at least one movie recommendation be based on the hottie factor of the movie. Any genre, any type, any era. But it must contain something appealing to that nature.
To make things easier, a movie can satisfy multiple rules - I could demand one movie for each rule, but nah.
One final thing - if I've already seen a film you suggest, you need to pick another one. There shouldn't be too much conflict because my cupboard is still relatively bare, but it could happen.
So there you go. Nominate away.
By the way, I'll be reviewing and writing up on every movie seen. So there's going to be massive amounts of entertainment. Just wait until I give some acclaimed film a 4/10 or something.
