1980s DRAFT: LEGACY (2017): Sign-Up and Discussion
#1
I'll take suggestions for names we can call this sequel. Sign-up here.

As mentioned, in order to mix it up from the last time, you'll be drafting ten, count 'em ten! films over five days. 

SIGN-UPS END NOON, FRIDAY, MARCH 30TH, 2018

DRAFT WILL BEGIN MONDAY, APRIL 2ND, 2018. 


Rules for our newcomers: 

1. Each person will be assigned two timeslots. You can only draft in your timeslots, or if everyone in the timeslot immediately preceding yours has gone. 

2. When your timeslot comes, post the name of your film and the year in the appropriate thread. 

3. Once a film has been drafted, it can no longer be drafted by another player. 

4. If, for some reason, you miss a timeslot, you can make it up later in the day or draft. 

5. For this draft, films must be released between January 1st, 1980 and December 31st, 1989.

6. The U.S. theatrical release date supersedes any other. If a film never received a U.S. theatrical release during the 1980s, it is eligible as long as it was released internationally between 1/1/80 and 12/31/89. 

7. Director's cuts, theatrical restorations, revivals, and films shot prior to 1975 are ineligible.

8. Films are eligible only for the version that was released during the 1980s. Later director's cuts or definitive editions are not eligible. 

GOOD LUCK.

First questions that I'd like to propose:

How do we feel about the "US only" rule? It's been brought to my attention that there are a number of films that are 80s classics that didn't get releases here until the 90s. Given that this is a new board, with a new start, I'm comfortable changing that rule to "first-run theatrical releases" or "films that were shot and released anywhere in the world between 1/1/80 and 12/31/89."

Additionally, I think we're all on board with the idea that they have to be released theatrically (i.e., no festivals), right?

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

Although I do think that opening up the field to worldwide release makes the decade unnecessarily fuzzy round the edges. I for one enjoy working with the restrictions of only being able to draft the version available at the time, leaving out original-language versions, belated directors' cuts and restorations.

That's why I said first-run theatrical or suggested shot/released in the 80s.

As an example, in 1989, there was a restored director's edition of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA that came out. Because that was shot in the 60s, it wouldn't count.

I'm thinking about modifying the rule to this:

"The U.S. theatrical release date supersedes any other. If a film never received a U.S. theatrical release during the 1980s, it is eligible as long as it was released internationally between 1/1/80 and 12/31/89.

Director's cuts, theatrical restorations, revivals, and films shot prior to 1975 are ineligible."

(The 1975 rule is to cover our bases with films that may have begun production early, a la the independent era, but not completed until the 1980s.)

Should also clarify that films from the 80s that later received director's cuts or restorations should only be draftable as the version that was actually seen in the 80s.

As mentioned

Hi,

Could you let me know where this is mentioned, so I can work out what this draft is about? I'm assuming you're drafting imaginary sequels to 80's movies but am not sure if I'm right.

We discussed it in the "ideas for future drafts," but in the past, when we've done a decade draft, we've done five movies. This time, we're doing ten, or two slots a day.

A decade or genre draft is different than a casting draft in that you're drafting the films themselves - actual movies that came out. Some people just go for their favorites, others do a theme. But you're drafting the movies - and the creativity comes from deciding what movies to pick. It's a bit more nakedly competitive than the casting drafts.

As a reference, here's the first day of our 1970s draft:

Ratty, we can work something out where you PM me your picks, and then just post in the list/discussion thread at your leisure. Let's figure out a way to make this work.

Is this only theatrical releases, or is strange-to-video stuff also eligible?

Theatrical only, U.S. preferred, international ok.
