Tick tock! The round one polls close tonight! Last chance to vote or change your vote. As it stands now, Blue is the Loneliest Colour That You’ll Ever Do and Minority Europa Report would be the two candidates for the final round.
Well right now it’s close between the three options, Europa Report, Blue is the Warmest Color, and the field. Of course the field is split 5 ways, so…
Barring major realignment then it seems our two finalists are set. So if you want to watch Brazil, hop to! It’s got a fantastic cast too.
Not had much time to Qt3 recently and didn’t realise Discourse hadn’t auto-tracked this thread for me when I started it last week, so I missed a good 140 posts! Anyway, this month’s poll looks great.
@Juan_Raigada Blue is the Warmest Colour has been on my list for a while now so I’m glad to hear you speaking so highly of it. Only reason we haven’t watched it already is that it’s a long film which makes it trickier to fit in. The movie club should compel us to make some space however, whether it wins or not :-)
I’ve also been wanting to see Europa Report for ages so cheers @marquac. It left UK Netflix a few months back before we managed to catch it.

Wait a sec --I am sure I voted for Europa Report. But If I haven’t I am now.
He’ll I thought I was the one that nominated it.
(grr PM you know I did)
@marquac Nominated it in-forum and in-thread.
Roles are rules, Ms. Gaines. Procedure must be followed.
I’m watching both of them no matter the results.
I’ve already watched both of them! I guess I’ll vote for Europa Report because a) I haven’t seen it for a couple years, and b) I want other people to see it. It’s flawed as hell, but mostly great, and I wish more films like that got made. While I like Blue Is The Warmest Colour, there’s no shortage of euro directors making artsy/sexy movies about young love.
I’ve already seen both. I think Blue is the better movie but they’re both good in their way.
You know what? Let’s take a chance. Changed my vote.
I have zero interest in that type of film. But you do you, buddy. :)
I’m a little torn. I think I’ve seen Europa Report unless I’m confusing it with something else, but it’s also way more my sort of movie than Blue is the Warmest Color, which I have not seen. (also Brazil and my nomination got robbed, dangit.)
So where do I lie in this confusing rules-bent conflagration? Plus do I get to watch Europa Report with you goofballs? or did I lose? Finally Marq was backing my choice up === sems like I should at least get an acknowledgement.
(I actually won a trial when I cross-examined a TVA accountant on “rules are rules”) Lol == I have never cared for rules much.
It sounds like you were looking for this thread Kristi. :)
Well, this is going to be close.
I’m watching Europa Report over the weekend anyway. Been meaning to for a while, and I love serious sci-fi(which this seems to be? I’m unclear if it’s going to be Horror. I hope not).
But I do hope Blue is the Warmest Color manages a win. It’s not only that I think it’s a film many people wary about will actually love, I also think it will be better for generating discussion (which, for me, is the raison d’être of the Movie Club). Also, I think it’s most likely people will watch Europa Report than Blue is the Warmest Color outside of the context of this club. Blue is the Warmest Color is not a movie you just pick for a boring night.
But I’m obviously biased :P
