    I have seen 44/64 surprisingly the comedy section was the one where I had only seen like 2 films
    That's pretty awesome! Which ones have you not seen?

    (Have you checked out the polls we have going? With 44 films watched you' be a good opinion)

    (Original post by moecandy)
    9 lol
    Not the worst we've had by a long way! Which 9?

    (Original post by -amy-h-)
    Only 2 Finding Nemo and The Matrix

    :console: But on the other hand you get to watch all those awesome films for the first time in future and experience that enjoyment!

    I've seen every single film on that list except:

    -6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    -5. Leon: The Professional
    -6. Mary and Max
    So I guess that means I've seen 61/64? Haha, when in Africa and you've got nothing else to do, movies are the way to go! (And books. Read books, kids).
    :O Think you're in the top 5 of the 200+ people that have replied so far!

    Now to watch those. I'd go with Leon, Then Eternal sunshine then Mary and Max but i just pulled that order out of nowhere really.

    Haha, really? Well, like I said, when you're living in Africa, and you've got nothing else to do, you might as well watch a film, right?

    That sounds like a good order to me, having just looked up those three films.

    Yea, Think We've had 1 person at 64/64, , 1 at 63/64 and 2 at 62/64.

    If i could be bothered i'd make a TSR leaderboard but i am way too busy with 100000 other TSr projects i'm doing.

    Well, I've just found out it's a French film, but done in English. I absolutely imperatively must watch it, then! How would you rank it, say, against Pulp Fiction?
    Not an easy comparison, both are excellent but stylistically very different. Personally, of the two, I rate Leon the higher; but we are splitting hairs.

    Well, Go get involved in the cartoon polls then !

    Up is against Hwo to Train Your Dragon

    Lion king is against Monsters.

    finidng enmo is Facing (the far superior) Wall-E

    And Toy Story 3 is kicking Mary & Max's Ass.

    Not seen any of Group A :/ although a couple are on my watch list for when I get back to uni.
    Three of Group B
    Three of group C (<3 Schindler's List, and to a slightly lesser extent Apocalypse Now and Saving Pvt. Ryan)
    Six of Group D (with blade runner near the top of the watch list, Pan's Labyrinth being the other I haven't seen)
    Only Two of Group E (Silence of the Lambs and Alien, along with a few bits of Psycho, but that doesn't really count)
    Five of Group F (Adore Gladiator; Raiders, Aliens, and Dark night aren't bad either; inception could have been better)
    Nothing from group G either :/ although, again, a couple are on my list
    Only Three from group H (Not watched many newer things)

    Based on what I've seen, I would want the winner of Each group to be:
    A) Well, I haven't seen any, so won't pass judgement.
    B) Holy Grail
    C) Schindler's List (One of the few films that can actually make me Cry), or failing that, Apocalypse Now. Both show the darker side of conflict that so many films and games neglect.
    D) While it probably wouldn't win many awards were it released today, 2001, even if it does creep my out in a few parts (The monkeys near the start and the giant space baby thing at the end, chiefly [not that there aren't others, the stone slab music is pretty creepy]).
    E) Silence of the Lambs
    F) Gladiator
    G) Well, again, haven't seen any, no judegement.
    H) Lion King (Or Toy Story 3, but it's no where near as good as 1 and I would much rather see Lion King win).

    Out of all 64? Schindler's List>Apocalypse Now=Gladiator=Lion King>Lambs=Grail

    Is there a thread with all the results rolled into one? Sad to see Holy Grail and 2001 fall.

    Yes, sticky thread called round one view results contains them all so far in a nice readable format.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...php?p=48541423

    Also, group E to H first round matches are still going so you can go vote and chat on them.

    I was also sad to see 2001 go but these things happen.

    What the Hell is Mary and Max? Like, how did I never hear of a Disney movie. I am a Disney fanatic and I don't know this

    EDIT

    Oh, it's Australian. Well, I'm going to play the "I live in Africa" card once again.

    Depending how things pair up next round C:
    IF Schidler is against Apocalypse now, I expect a close win for Schindler (I asumme it will be QF1 v 2 and 3 v 4)
    If they aren't against each other, I hope they both win and then Schindler in the final, however I can see Saving Pvt. Ryan being tough competition

    Now 2001 is gone, I expect a final between Star Wars and LotR, depending on semis set up, and a close win for LotR.

    Yep, check out post 21 in that thread for the line ups.

    There are some very tough matches coming up.

    63/64 Missing `Mary and Max', which I'd never heard of. A pretty good film selection, except for 2001 which is unwatchable.

    You're in equal second place! :woo:

    If someone wanted to skim the whole thread and find the top 5 i'll edit it into the OP but as of right now i cba...

    You should check out Mary and Max, i've heard very good things about it form the few that have watched it.

    2001 is unwatchable? :O I loved it. But i'm a giant nerd. It is a bit slow paced though and does tend to drag...
