The Good Movies EpiGuide 3 - better late than never!!


Jan 31, 2010 (Updated Jun 30, 2010)


The Bottom Line The Good Movies EpiGuide is back for a third season!

So far... 29 entrants, 301 entries!!

Thanks everyone!


Well guys, I completely forgot about doing my third Good Movies WO back in October, so I'm going to host it now.  Since 216 entries last time was quite a haul, I'm going to leave it open for the whole of February - June in the hope that I can gete even more entries this time.

The first Good Movies Write Off garnered 148 entries in all, while as mentioned the second got 216.  That's 364 in total, so maybe we can get 236 to make it 600?  There are no shortage of good films out there to be reviewed...

Anyway, really simple rules:

- Review a good movie - by which I mean any movie that you'd give a 4 or 5 star rating. 
- Any genre and any release date is fine.
Direct to DVD / TV movies are acceptable (if you can find any good ones!!)
- It doesn't matter if the movie's already been reviewed by someone else
- Documentaries are fine if they're feature length (ie March of the Penguins, etc)
- Double pack DVD's are okay as long as your overall rating is 4 or 5 stars


A link back to the write off page isn't required, though I don't mind if you want to add one! :-D

If you know anyone else who might like to join, please feel free to let them know.

If I don't agree with you about something being a good movie... it doesn't matter!  A good movie is in the eyes of the viewer... or something.

If anyone's thinking "CaptainD's doing this to get himself writing more movie reviews again"... well, you're right about that, but it isn't the only reason!

How to Enter

Simply leave a link a the movie title in the comments section here and I'll update as soon as possible.


Movies I Plan To Review For This Write Off:

Dinosaur *DONE*
Howl's Moving Castle
My Neighbour Totoro *DONE*

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
Who Framed Roger Rabit
Rebecca

Probably a load more... yeah I know, some people will be appalled that I've got both Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece Rebecca and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure together in that list...

Two quick comments about these entries - some of them are films I wouldn't classify as "Good Movies", but each is a good movie in the opinion of the individual reviewer.  Because we have such a wide variety of reviews here by quite a number of reviewers, some of the films and possibly their reviews may be offensive to some.  Approach with caution and at your own risk if the title of the movie looks like it might be something offensive to you...)
