I'll do PLACES IN THE HEART.

Haven't seen either of the other two--sorry!

There is this difference between the growth of some human beings and that of others: in the one case it is a continuous dying, in the other a continuous resurrection. (George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie)

Isn't narrative structure enough of an ideology for art? (Greg Wright)

I'll take Nights of Cabiria and Rules of the Game.

Oh, wait. Does it matter if I didn't vote?

Yes it matters, it matters to this community. WHY didn't you vote?!

IMO, you can write whatever blurb is desired, but we missed your voice on the vote.

You deserve to be stuck with The Rules of the Game. ;)

Honestly, stefbo, I didn't know voting was open. My visits have been irregular. And if I'm not excluded by my nonvoting, I'll do whatever I can to reverse your decade-long aversion to Renoir's bringing of the awesome.

Also, if any of you who have taken films to blurb have any questions about what's expected, just PM me.

The rule of thumb is: 3-5 paragraphs. Attempting to cover the basics of plot, a bit about cinematography, and a wee insight into the meaning of the thing.

PLEASE try to complete your assignments by February 1. This will enable us to allow the media to a a completed site when we go public. Which would be utterly cool.

Thx again.

Thanks, BethR and Russ. And no, it doesn't matter whether you voted. Anyone who knows a film who's a member of this community can write about that film.

That covers all the new films.

You guys are the best.

I hereby challenge you to create one sentence in your blurb which includes the words "bringing" and "awesome." They don't have to be consecutive, but must occur in that order.

We are hoping to go public with both the Top 100 list and the Top 25 Horror Films list on February 7, approximately 3 weeks before the Oscars.

The deadline for Top 100 blurbs and short horror film descriptions is February 4.

PLEASE please please try to make this deadline.

It will enable us to meet the PR deadline and make the most of the run-up to the Oscars.

Top 100 blurbs go to me via PM or e-mail.

Top 25 descriptions go to Anna.

THANKS!!!

I'll re-watch Paths of Glory and finish the write-up for it tonight.

Whoops. I had the deadline written down as 2/4 for some reason. Switching gears...

I made the same assumption Mike L. did based on Greg's comment at post #37--- "The deadline for Top 100 blurbs and short horror film descriptions is February 4."

I will never trust post #37 again.

From the minute post #37 walked through the door, sashaying her hips and batting her painted eyes, I knowed she had a lyin' mouth.

I was thinking Friday 2/4 for everything as well.

I saw Greg's 2/1 deadline, but figured it had been extended to 2/4. And when you're a grownup and snow days are a thing of the past, deadline extensions are about as close as you can get to recapturing that teenage feeling.
