Title: For Your Consideration - Dekapenticon's Campaign Thread!
Post by: cine on November 26, 2005, 03:19:26 AM
so this is for campaigning films you would like people to see and consider for their lists. you may write your reasoning for each film if you wish. nothing wrong with that.

some ground rules i'd like to make:

no spamming.

no debating about peoples campaign choices. this thread doesn't need discussion. you can revive the film's thread and talk about it there.

limit your choices to FIVE at the most please -- and put them all in one post if possible. for the sake of organization, really.

and now for MY top 5 films you must go find on dvd and watch/love/vote!

Wow, not a bad bunch of films recommended so far.  I plan on watching Battle of Algiers and Paper Moon this week.  The Idiots is a little difficult to get a hold of, but I'll try.

Here's some of my favorites you may have missed:

Aguirre, The Wrath of God[/b] (Werner Herzog, 1972)
Herzog is a consistently interesting filmmaker and this is, perhaps, his masterpiece.

The Band Wagon (Vincente Minnelli, 1953)
One of my favorite screen musicals with my all-time favorite finale (at the Dem Bones Cafe).  Simply incredible.

Don't Look Now (Nicolas Roeg, 1973)
Walkabout may be more groundbreaking, but I'd rather stick this one in and enjoy it on a rainy day. 

Grand Illusion[/b] (Jean Renoir, 1937)
A complex and powerful examination of freedom, class differences, honor and compassion

My Darling Clementine (John Ford, 1946)
Some of Henry Fonda's best work was done in collaboration with John Ford.  This film gets lost somewhere in-between Stagecoach and The Searchers; what those films achieve in raw spectacle, this film achieves with quiet grandeur.

Post by: Pubrick on November 28, 2005, 02:22:45 AM
i don't think this thread is being used properly.

it's JUST for telling ppl movies u think deserve a look, or may be overlooked. not for everyone to rally behind one movie. do u even HAVE a favourite herzog seeing as how u don't care which one makes it on the list as long as it's directed by him? in that case ppl would campaign for ONE kubrick film, and ONE spielberg, and ONE scorsese.. thus creating the most boring fucking dekapenticon imaginable.

ppl vote for whatever u want, if u want to discuss the damn subtleties go to the appropriate thread like cine said at the beginning. keep it a SHORT LIST. if u go like 10 or whatever u might as well say "hey everyone here's exactly what i voted for". that's not the point of this thread. jesus christ.
Title: Re: For Your Consideration - Dekapenticon's Campaign Thread!
Post by: SoNowThen on November 28, 2005, 02:25:18 AM
I vote for Jesus Christ as well.



Actually, Stroszeck IS my fav Herzog, and I noticed that someone posted a pic of it, so it seems like a good movie to rally behind, seeing as how most of his best (+ Aguirre, Kasper, Heart Of Glass) are so close.
Title: Re: For Your Consideration - Dekapenticon's Campaign Thread!
Post by: cine on November 28, 2005, 02:57:09 AM
well it doesnt matter because discussion is not part of this thread and i made that clear. this thread was never for pre-planning whats voted. im pretty sure my first post laid out what this thread was for. if you wanna figure out what the general consensus is on the best herzog film or whatever.. we'll all see you in the herzog thread.

Pubrick I know I'm all "Hey a short time here!" but I really have no clue what movies you like and would like to.

Edit:  Kubrick.  You like Kubrick.  . . .and then I'm at a loss.  But yes I get that you like Kubrick.

ok everyone i just merged the rallying posts from this thread with their respective directors, notice in the Director's Chair there are now bumped threads for Herzog, Bergman, and Ratner.

Pubrick I know I'm all "Hey a short time here!" but I really have no clue what movies you like and would like to.

Edit:  Kubrick.  You like Kubrick.  . . .and then I'm at a loss.  But yes I get that you like Kubrick.
it's funny, apart from ur first few weeks here i don't think u've noticed i'm the biggest defender u hav on the board. i like most of the same stuff as u with some major exceptions (me and u and everyone we know, korine).

i'll post my campaign picks soon. for more info PM me.
ps. "would like to." doesn't make any sense.   :|

First of all I like Korine.  Second of all I like everyone here but especially people who talk movies a lot but I seem to run into them the most.  Makes sense.

i get heat for it, but i know there's other people out there that love this movie. come on, fellas. let's band together and prove to the world that xixax movie lists aren't about who can be the most "cultured" and pretentious. this is our list of FAVORITE movies. and, i know i'm going over, and i know this one will never make it, but...

I love Wong Kar-Wai and I'm not sure which film of his I want to nominate.  What Wong Kar-Wai films are people here nominating?  I'd like to nominate the one that would have the best chance of showing up in the next round.

If ever my friends and I were truly represented, it would be by the characters in this film.
as a bunch of chauvinisms?

Some in the film are, some aren't. We're classical male chauvinism though.

fixed. you'd think as your first post you'd want to do things right.. at least to give a good first impression.

at the very least introduce yourself (http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=2.0). i mean, what did you expect "oh wow thedudeabidestbl says i should consider Blood Simple! stop all the presses i'm rewriting my list!"

yeah and polkablues and bonanzataz, and many others. but at least they somewhat earned an exception, we grudgingly allow their transgressions because we KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

Persona
A film that not only has stood on its own for 40 years, but like Citizen Kane is responsible for so many films that followed.

The Big Lebowski
Dude.

Amelie
The only film with a more powerful opening sequence is Magnolia.  Pure joy, and one of the most powerful examples of filmmaking.

Eyes Wide Shut
Read the thread (http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=1380.0), and read mutinyco's excellent essay (http://movienavigator.org/eyeswideshut.htm) on the subject.  My appreciation only increases with each viewing.

The Ice Storm
Regarding sexuality, the innocence and naivete in children and adults has never been more perfectly juxtaposed.

                            Roy Grutman: Well, you xeroxed his ad, and you sent it out in a million fundraiser letters.
                            Jerry Falwell: Yeah, so?
                            Roy Grutman: But you didn't get his permission. And that's copyright infringement.
