Although I probably don't have much chance against the GREAT films already put up for nomination , here is my puny attempt to unseat them -
1. - My BEAUTIFUL , GORGEOUS FOX print of JACK , THE GIANT KILLER
and
2. My BEAUTIFUL LOW-FADE print of GOKE , BODY SNATCHER FROM HELL , in SCOPE ,
re-recorded in English by the great Adam Deirling .

BOTH are SUPER 8MM PRINTS !!
Here are some screen shots , for your enjoyment

Lee,

If Dad was still with us he'd come to Wildwood for sure!

Tom & Joe,

Not at a convention....The collector I bought my Xenon GS from had his projector gate ruined by a film that had a "splice by stapler". He thought it might have been done as a quick fix during a screening and then forgotten.

Mr. Vannicola, you have a choice to make! Please narrow down your three submissions to two films (please keep Black Scorpion in the running....I've never seen it!)

Doug

I think there's room for just one more film.....

If someone nominates only one film or no film then why is it an issue if someone else nominates three. I say more films in the pile the better. Things even out

I’ll go Jaws. It’s by the water, it’s the jersey beach (a la the novels inspiration) and it’s my favorite movie

Sorry guys. In my zeal, I accidentally nominated three films instead of two. Oops. Anyhoo, my nominations are The Black Scorpion and Mad Love. Thank you, Brian, I appreciate your help in this matter. By the way, Doug; I think I now know why people staple 8mm film. That's almost as bad as the time I was going to buy a 16mm cartoon reel and noticed the guy had used a band aid for one of the splices. Needless to say I lost interest very quickly.

Joe,

Thank you for keeping Black Scorpion in the running.

Brian's point is well taken, however I've found that too many films can spread the vote out and necessitate the need for a runoff. Not a bad thing, just more time is needed. We could still have a runoff if there is a tie between the top vote getters.

Can't wait to see you all in just a few short weeks!

My 2 offerings are as follows:

War Games (1983, LPP): Classic Matthew Broderick movie (93% Rotten Tomatoes!)

It Happens Every Spring (B/W, 1949): One of the funniest, (if not the funniest) baseball comedies (100% on Rotten Tomatoes!). Perfect since Baseball season is just starting.

Both choices are in 16mm and both are family friendly for all ages. [Big Grin]

Thank you Doug for taking the time to explain to me the reasoning behind not allowing more than two films per person. Im new to Cinesea so I would not know

Sorry to hear you'll miss Friday night Greg, but at least a wedding can be fun too! Looking forward to seeing you and Jenna on Saturday tho!

And Shorty.....of course! And how appropriate if War Games is chosen, that we should play chess!

(A key line in the movie is "Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?")

NOBODY mention the "W" word around my wife!

-she watches those weddin' gown shows on cable all the time and if she knew there was a real wedding handy WE might miss Friday Night Feature!

I think there should be a groom's counterpart to those shows: "Say 'whatever' to the Tux"! (If I didn't rent mine I'd have been changing oil in it 15 years ago!)

This sounds like about the most competitive ballot we've ever had.

-I predict a run-off!

Anyone remember that scene towards the end of Maverick (Mel Gibson, 1994), when the Commodore (played by James Coburn)
thinks he has the winning hand, and lights a victory cigar? Only to have Alfred Molina's character show a better hand seconds later?

 -

That's kinda what I felt like with the excitement of my suggestion of War Games.....until Gary pulled out Raiders...in SCOPE! [Razz] (To be fair, there were plenty of previous selections that were equal/better candidates than War Games (in my own humble opinion). Personally, I'm drooling at the thought of Raiders in Scope. All the choices so far have been great, but Raiders is one of my all time favorites.

Thought for Doug, Shorty and Lou (and anyone else heading up the CineSea event), was there ever the thought of a 'double feature'? If we started at 7, we could be done by 11:30 with a small intermission between titles (assuming each film is approx. 2 hours). Heck the drive-ins do it, why not CineSea? [Wink]

Something to think about? Maybe not for this CineSea, but future ones? Or should this idea be taken out to the barn ala a rabid Old Yeller [Razz]

One thing is for certain....there's no shortage of awesome selections at every CineSea!!! [Cool] [Smile]
