It figures. After having 9 1/2 months to give their input, people suddenly decide they don't like the outcome the very day Chad's about to post the thread.


caligulathegod, you're a hard man to reach ...already PM'd and emailed you. I never received your email regarding the 3 wild card rules. Please shoot me another one when you can!

I made a Facebook group for this. If anyone is on Facebook, just look 100 movies.

I'll PM you my email directly. Looks like DVDTalk's isn't delivering email.

How would we know the outcome until you posted the results yesterday? I guess I could have gone through all the posts, and tabulated the results myself, but frankly, I couldn't be bothered.

I only gave my opinion on the wild card issue because it was brought up in response to my question about whether anthology shows count. As I said before, if they don't, I'll stick to movies. It's really not a big deal to me.

I think personally the 3 wild card rule should be inforced for the MOH short films, a simpsons halloween episode, twighlight zone stuff ect.
My question, suppose i want to watch the Steven King version of The Shining (that was a 3 night 90 minute miniseries) would that be included as a wild card or as a movie?

Yeah, I actually brought that up a couple posts ago. I don't believe someone should be punished for one title being so long. Unlike fantasy, there aren't three hour epic horror movies. Closest we have are miniseries, which are typically presented over 2 or more nights. Perhaps if a film is at least 3 hours it counts as 2 titles. This doesn't mean 2:30 horror films count as a film and a half. This is special for epic/miniseries. I suppose we could go by presentation on longer minis. Like a 4 night mini counts as 4 (wasn't The Stand 4 nights?).

What exactly are you referring to? Except for a recent accidental bump, this thread is 1-2 years old.

LOL... Just blame it on Ike.

Yeah, and I didn't help matters by replying in here... but I wanted to know about the Facebook group (which Trevor promptly responded to).
