Hello all! I'm not sure if this will fly given the other movie review threads, but we'll give it a go. Kissinger and I came up with this idea of picking a "movie buddy" and challenging them to watch a movie they hadn't seen before. Naturally a review - doesn't have to be comprehensive - is expected afterwards. Remember that this is meant to be fun, so try and pick films that your buddy would probably enjoy. At the same time, try and pick something that would hopefully expand their filmic parameters a bit. I suppose there should be some ground rules: 1. Your buddy has to be an HTF member. 2. Films should be fairly accessible (members can mail each other movies if need be). 3. This is a "challenge" but try not to get too extreme - this thread shouldn't be seen as an excuse to make George Kaplan watch Peter Greenaway movies. 4. You don't have to stick with the same buddy - if you feel you've tortured someone long enough, pick a new buddy. Actually it might be more interesting to switch buddies on a montly basis. Let me know what you think. 5. One movie a month minimum per participant! Thanks! So pick a buddy if you're so inclined and sign up! Remember, the primary goal here is to have fun and share your love of movies! First up: With all the whacked-out movies I'm always blathering on about, Kiss is probably very afraid so I'll take it easy on him (for now): buddy, I hereby challenge you to watch Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be, starring my favorite old-timey movie actress, Carole Lombard. Enjoy.
