These reserved seats are nice. They're cushier with a lot more legroom. Thanks Steve!

I'm afraid I'll be a little out of my league in this one, but I'll give it a try. 10 films sounds fine.

- Walter.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.

Well, you know damn well what my first pick is gonna be!


One thing: when posting your pick, please give the name of the cinematographer along with the film title. Thanks!

Walter says ten picks is fine, how about the rest of you?

Gee, thanks for reserving me a seat, Steve. I'll do my best to get my butt to visit it at least every 12 hours. Posted Image

(I believe this is my first time participating in a draft, so pardon any rule missteps. Just set me straight with a swift kick to the reserved seat.)

Steve,

I was under the impression that we would be drafting cinematographers, not specific films.

Sorry. Posted Image

No problem.

Drafting cinematographers would make things a bit rough in that if we're each going to be making ten picks, that's eighty we'd need to come up with. Much better to go with the films themselves though you're welcome to pick only films by a specific cinematographer. Personally, I'm going for variety. Posted Image
