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


#161

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.


#163

lol rules

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

Yeah, I think people who have expressed misgivings about watching it are being wrongheaded, but then people’s taste in film is very idiosyncratic.


#167

This is why I went on #TeamBlueIsWarm


#168

I will watch neither movie outside of this club.


#169

This is why I like the Club. :) Thanks for participating, Nesire. This post made my day.


#170

I think I actually have an unopened copy of the Criterion blu-ray for Blue is the Warmest Color on my shelf, so this will give me motivation to finally check that out.


#171

Does everyone know that Tom wrote a review of Europa Report? You can find that review here.


#172

Well, I am solidly on #TeamBlueIsWarm now


#173

I am pretty honest with myself. I couldn’t even list the movies from the last round that didn’t make it if someone said my life depended on it. I’ll forget one of these two a month from now… maybe both, depending on my viewing experience.


#174

I get it. I am embracing it with Blue. It is the film that is furthest outside my viewing norms of the two. So I am choosing it, as the one most likely to expand my horizons.


#175

I’ll watch Blue if you vote in my thread. Bet? :)


#176

Taken.


#177

Thanks bud.


#178

Hey. This looks like bribery to me!


#179

Pretty sure that’s legal by the rules of the thread.


#180

Bribery is not campaigning. Everyone knows this kind of stuff is done behind closed doors!
