Next Tournament Ideas

Recommended Posts

Couldn't be arsed searching for the last thread and the Movie Soundtrack one just seemed like it was gonna be shit. 

 

How do people feel about the movie by decade one? Best film of the 60's, then 70's and so on then I will do a final with all the winners so we can crown the greatest movie of all time as voted for by the GF and not some divvies at IMDB who definitely watch midget porn. Could also do best film up until the 60's as there were some classics before then as well just not enough to do by decade. 

 

Or have we already done a film one? I can't remember. 

 

Thoughts?

I'd prefer it to be from 1965-1975 and so on for no there reason than to be a pain the arse.

Sounds good to me.

 

I look forward to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest being beaten in the final by Beverley Hills Cop 3.

Hahaha. 

 

Thinking everyone submits 5 votes only, and I'll pick the top 32. I don't want to be trawling through hundreds of obscure movies. Weekend at Bernies vs Tremors as good as it sounds isn't really gonna achieve anything long term. 

 

 

 

Fucking tough that by the way.

I think genres was the other option but some dick will probably argue the toss over it so decades probably works out better. Are we humouring @Tony Moanero and starting in the 20s?

Genres is too complicated. same with the soundtracks one, some of the submissions were too 50/50 and it just wouldn't have been fun sorting out. Plus cunts didn't read when I said Rocky isn't being counted. 

 

Don't Read, Get Banged. I run a tight ship.

I’d do 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s. It would take a while, but the GF needs a good tournament, and most people like films.

I saw that and thought 10s seems a glaring omission but then I'd probably struggle to name 5 films in the past decade, let alone great ones!

It is an important question as to what decades the tournament should cover. A few examples of movies that wouldn’t make the starting grid if we went for the 50’s onwards...

 

1930’s

 

Angels With Dirty Faces 

Gone With The Wind

It Happened One Night

 

1940’s


It’s A Wonderful Life

Casablanca

Citizen Kane

I'll do 00's and 10's as well for sure. There has been some crackers. 10's alone... 

 

Interstellar

Dallas Buyers Club

Wolf of Wall St

Peanut Butter Falcon

Le Mans

Can you put a block on the try hards who’ll be nominating some obscure Korean shite that no ones heard of or cares about

As this tournament was my suggestion I fully approve. I think we should be able to nominate 10 for each decade though as otherwise I suspect most people’s top 5’s would be pretty similar.

Nah mate 5 is enough, 2 reasons. 1) The cream will rise anyway and its easier to get 32 and 2) 10 doubles the workload for me because as Red74 said, cunts gonna cunt.

Off the top of my head, my five favourite 2010s films.

 

Carol

The Kings of Summer

The Old Man & the Gun

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

The Town

 

Dallas Buyers Club is great, though.

You’ve got all the legwork to do, so it’s up to you Stig, but I will struggle to narrow it down to 5 for the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Some really great films will end up missing out.

Some of us like to get recommendations for great foreign films we haven't seen - just ignore anything you haven't heard of.
