Ok, haven't started a new thread in a while. Saw this on Twitter and it's worth presenting to you guys. No real rules. Use Gifs/screenshots/text...whatever medium. And you can do whatever you want, explain or just present. The only only only hard fast rule...FOUR films and FOUR only. Not 4a/b, no multiple lists...no dodging or cheating. FOUR.

Keep in mind, the point is...these may not be the BEST films. Or even you FAVORITE films. But films that, if you were introducing yourself to someone, would demonstrate your core essence. It's not easy. Four movies that DEFINE you. Be honest with yourself...give it some thought. I look forward to a glimpse into your worlds.

O_o Interesting. After a first pass (i.e.: shooting from the hip) I have to say this game is almost too revealing. Going to do a little self-editing. Otherwise, i'm a romantic-psychotic. [save it, jerks] =)

No judgement. Anyone judging will get soundly boo'd.

I thought the same thing, but eff it. I decided to fully embrace the romantic psychopath I am. In the words of that famous spinach-chomping sailor/philosopher, I yam what I yam.

She's so edgy, she looks for OLDBOY in the "Romantic Comedies" section.



P.S. I'm totally winning this contest.

Fair enough. It was just hard for me to find a relatable romantic movie, the ones I love are not reflective of my experience. Hence no Princess Bride (not a princess), Gone with the Wind(not pining for a married guy-who was totally spineless-her whole life), Casa Blanca (not that cool of a woman)but Arsenic and Old Lace made sense in the respect: who hasn’t fallen for someone (or is someone) with a “crazy” family ? Relatable.

Well, the way I interpreted the challenge is to include "movies that on some level really resonate with you," not "movies that are reflective of your life experience." No reason they can't be both; I can certainly see that some movies selected by people are indeed both.

But I assure you that I have never been a blade runner nor resurrected the dead. I've also never started, or been a part of, any fight club or hung out with Scarlett Johansson in Tokyo (but Scarlett, if you're reading this, I'm down).

JD said no rules(except the number), so you do you. Good luck with Scarlett. ;) Wonder if i can give him **** now about working on his list? Dude, everyone else was brave enough to bear their "soul". Where you at?

These are my guess* for JD
Eraserhead
Naked Lunch
Fritz the Cat (or Clerks 2)
Blue Valentine


*just goofing around, hope it is taken as such.

It's funny, but on Twitter peeps went off on this 4 movie thing and did a 4 video game thing and now that I think about it, well, this would be one of my games.

I like the game just because it's so different from most games from that era. So open ended and not violent as usual. I still have a copy and my Genesis somewhere, but I just play these games through emulation.

Now that I think about it, I should start a 4 Video Game thread, so that we don't hijack this thread, lol. ;)
