I agree with Zorg, 8 players could be more fun.

Re: Any interest of a music quiz league?

I'm fine with everything, no changes needed, excluding the fact that the questions could be repeated after a while, something that can't be solved with a bigger number of questions per round... Of course, if there is a general consensus of increasing the number of questions for each round, I don't m...

Re: Films of the '70s: Final 100

Barry, you don't need to worry about not having seen enough films, the formula takes care of that. Everyone will rank the films they've seen and the other films get the same score as the film in the middle of your ranked list. If this sounds too good for the unseen films, you should know that the s...

Re: Films of the '70s: Final 100

Some surprising entries (Interiors, Trafic, The Front Page) and omissions here (Blazing Saddles, Dirty Harry, Assault On Precinct 13, Three Days Of The Condor, High Plains Drifter), making overall a very interesting list, not without the necessary classics of course. Unfortunately I don't think I wi...

Re: Sight and Sound Poll 2012: Ain't no more Kane

It has complex elements, but as a story it feels very simple.... and while that might hold up as a nostalgic favorite, when choosing the best of all-time I'd prefer to choose films that told a story in a way that no other could, with images that really stick with a viewer. Not that Citizen Kane's s...

Re: Sight and Sound Poll 2012: Ain't no more Kane

Citizen Kane is a film geek movie, for people who enjoy watching movies and don't get into what the movie actually achieved, it's just a good movie. Plotwise, it edges on slow and boring, but to me it was still decent. Even a casual viewer can appreciate the camera work, but a film geek knows how s...

Re: Films of 2012

Thanks Gillingham! I would also like to express my huge disappointment for the "Dictator". "Borat" did not fascinate me but it showed a group of people with potential, smart mockumentary technincs and a tremendous talent regarding mixing criticism for many behaviorisms in modern society (some people...

Re: Sight and Sound Poll 2012: Ain't no more Kane

Oh boy... That whole "Kane ain't cool" fashion which has started way back through the '00s seems like it paid off. Not that I am complaining concerning that an equally masterful motion picture has replaced it (though not my favorite Hitchcock-and since we are at it, where the hell is "Rear Window"??...

I'm definitely missing something here, but are mixtapes actually eligible for AM (speaking of "Nostalgia Ultra" and "House Of Balloons" of course)?

Re: AMF All Time Movies Poll: Voting Thread

Just my opinion of course, but I really think the deadline should be extended till the end of September so that there will be as many lists as possible.

Re: 2 questions

Re: Are You Experienced? For the intents and purposes of forum polls I guess the U.S., or 1997 re-issue, versions would be what most people mean when they mention that album. I personally prefer the UK album (for me, the tracks flow a little more and the inclusion of Red House is essential). What I...

Thank you too for the advice given Nassim!

Re: 2 questions

Thanks a lot Henrik!

Actually, to be more specific, I should have put the question like this: "How many albums should I listen to in order to make a more reliable list, in terms of personal experience and music taste?"

Re: Films of 2012

Dead topic here-kinda sad, since we are in the middle of the year. I'd say I fall in a similar category with Spaz here, but I've managed to catch up some important releases until this time. So: The Grey-A fine "survival adventure" indeed, quite darker than the usual cliches of the genre, with some v...

2 questions

1) Which version of "Are You Experienced" should I listen to as the "qualifying" one? The original "North American" and "British" versions are very different in terms of the tracks they include, but there are also the 1997 reissues which contain everything in both cases. Still, I am not sure. 2) Wha...
