Quarter To Three Movie Club - NOV 2018/Europa Report - Spoilers Allowed!!


#141

I mean, I can’t say I wouldn’t have been happy with that either. I’ll be pretty happy with most any movie picked*

*two exceptions, but mostly because I know I wouldn’t have anything to say.


#142

I think I’d be happy with most any of the films on this month’s list as well.


#143

Same here. Well, any of them except Brazil. #TeamNeverBrazil.

The only one I’ve seen in this month’s nominations besides Brazil is Better Luck Tomorrow, which I just saw about 3 months ago for the first time. But I’d be happy to see that one again if it won.

Btw, I have a question about Rule 001: Does that mean any movie that reaches the final round of voting can’t be nominated again? Or it just means the movie that won can’t be nominated again?


#144

Winners can’t be renominated.

It’s basically to prevent having the same film be viewed again as a winner.


#145

If it wins, I’m there. And uhh I knew it was French, just making sure the organizer was paying attention…

Mmm…hmmm…


#147

Reminder!

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.


#148

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.

#152

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)


#153

@marquac Nominated it in-forum and in-thread.

Roles are rules, Ms. Gaines. Procedure must be followed.


#154

I’m watching both of them no matter the results.


#155

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.


#156

Same!


#157

I’ve already seen both. I think Blue is the better movie but they’re both good in their way.


#158

You know what? Let’s take a chance. Changed my vote.


#159

I have zero interest in that type of film. But you do you, buddy. :)


#160

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.)
