Rayon Vert Presents: five 30s films

#1203 Post by Mr Sausage » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:18 am

Given Rayon Vert's tireless contributions to the 30s List Project, it was only natural to ask him to curate a round of 30s films to vote for.

LQ might make her triumphant return to posting if Gold Diggers of 1933 wins.

Looks like the forum is eagre for her return, because Gold Diggers of 1933 it is!

On the Waterfront is the only one I haven't seen, so it gets my vote.

The theme here is that these were random picks from a pile of around two dozen of the canonical titles I own but am most embarrassed not to have seen yet! And if you think these reflect poorly on my cinephile credentials, you should see some of the others on that list that weren’t chosen...

The only one I haven't seen is the Bergman but all of them with the exception of Brazil warrant a rewatch. But I'm a sucker for Kieslowski and haven't played my Criterion yet so it got my vote

I demand that you disclose this information, in the interest of moderator transparency

I have seen all of these, but that’s 90% of the reason why I was already a moderator. I need to rewatch Blue for the Cesars list and On the Waterfront for the upcoming Oscars list, so either of those has my support. I know the Great Dictator like the back of my hand after years of teaching it, and I don’t ever need to see Brazil again

Coincidentally, I'm giving a presentation on Hour of the Wolf next week, so that one definitely gets my vote. I might even have some shocked reactions from Bergman neophytes come discussion time, haha (assuming it continues to lead the field)

It was a tie between They Live by Night and Kind Hearts and Coronets, so I changed my vote from the former, giving us our winner: Kind Hearts and Coronets

DarkImbecile presents: An Arrow Vote

DarkImbecile has been doing some much needed work on the Arrow subforums these last weeks, so who better to select five Arrow titles for your voting pleasure.

I’ve somehow seen all of these except Basket Case, and I voted for Motel Hell. Early results are grim though: Could there be a more Zzzzzzzz choice for this board when offered a smorgasbord of entertaining trash than to just go for Argento, which was never in any danger of being under-discussed?

I've seen all of them, and I have 4 of them on Arrow BD. I had not yet upgraded Basket Case, and its 2 sequels, but this poll prompted me to do a price search, and I noticed that hive.co.uk have the UK Second Sight Blu-ray trilogy (standard case) for only £10.69 delivered. Ordered, of course. Who said polls were a waste of time?!!! I voted for Society, BTW.
