I don't spend a lot of time looking at HTF, but I haven't noticed any sniping about us from Moe. He seems like a good guy, and has put up with all of our shit-giving.

I don't really have any problem with Furmanek either. I don't agree with him or his unwavering adherence to the trades 100% of the time, but he does far more good than harm. Most importantly, he has smacked that smarmy fuck Jeff Wells down several times, and the enemy of my enemy is my friend or whatever.

Outside of aspect ratio research, Bob has also restored many films (yes, even non 3D ones), which I'm sure all here will agree is something to commend him for.

Thanks for the supportive replies, they are appreciated.

Perkins, I have to say I think that it is more fun. The goal of the game isn't to suck all the fun out with brute force type guesses, but to have some fun while guessing. I think earlier you put something up. About minimal discussion but that wasn't how I ran my game if you see the thread, I replied to every guess of a title, and had we continued would have answered the daily question and given another clue the next day.

The game had failed in their eyes before because it didn't last. Ron and I brainstormed ways to allow the game to go on far longer and hopefully be more fun for more members over time before the title was figured out. The idea of having a minimum post count to participate was actually mine. This forum has a minimum post count for unmoderated participation as well...

People seemed to enjoy the recent Arrow guessing game - and in the process it threw up quite a few other interesting names whose rights situation might be worth investigating.

And the biggest prize with the Arrow example is that the thing you're trying to guess is actually an incredibly exciting release. La Bamba, not so much, unless you've never seen a bargain bin.

Couldn't the TT "Game" or any Internet guessing game last longer if whoever was running it didn't say "Hey, that's right" until at least a couple days had passed?

It's all a game to Twilight Time. Let's see how long it goes before they stop the games because someone is scooping everything else before others can participate.

No one has guessed the second release as yet. The three clues are:
Quote:
Clue 1: The Grant of the 20th has a cameo of sorts.

Clue 2: Joe Eszterhas comes again.

Clue 3: The man who chopped the lady gets unflattering treatment.

Cameo. Joe Eszterhas. Unflattering treatment.

Obviously An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn!

It's almost surely Betrayed, no?

That was my thought after Eszterhas too, but the clues have become so obtuse that it's impossible to tell. Even the HTF faithful seem to be done with the nonsense.

Turns out it was Born Yesterday (1950).

Clue # 2: Born Yesterday's author Garson Kanin sold the rights of the play to Columbia for a then unheard of $1 million dollars. Joe Eszterhas repeated the feat years later by selling the script to Basic Instinct (1992) for a then unheard of 3 million dollars. Hence Joe Eszterhas comes again.

Wow. They could have just as easily given the clue "Melanie Griffith comes again." It would have been equally stupid but at least slightly more relevant (you know, because she like, starred in the remake or whatever?). There is truly nothing fun about attempting to guess these clues.

Uh... What? I'm seriously completely and utterly lost on what this even means and how that clue is supposed to equal Born Yesterday.

Third guessing game:
Quote:
Clue #1: The Method, an Italian muse, Spaghetti sauce, it all comes out in the wash.

Clue #2: Poor Marni Nixon… he “walked the line.”

Clue #3: Richard Brooks directed “too.”

Clue #4: Franciosa, Forsythe, Parks. Who’s on first? Or is it second?

Clue # 5: Chinatown has a two-fold connection. Even if once removed.

Clue #6: The Lady Vanishes for Billie Burke.

Clue #7: The producer was going to direct till Garland or "Red" intervened.

Wake me up when one of the answers is The Asthenic Syndrome. The clue for that would be "Strangers on a train? Or in the night?"
