Asian comedy in general sucks.
At the ICM Forum we love movies and lists and discussion. Come join us.
No country limit, no genre limit. There's an obvious urge for comedies, and for countries I think WC is just appropriate.Lonewolf2003 on Mar 10 2017, 09:38:40 AM wrote:What about something like this:Lonewolf2003 on Mar 10 2017, 08:07:49 AM wrote:I like the idea for a smaller Cup with a region, especially with just KO matches. I also like the idea for a limit to 21st century films, maybe we could set this limit for one round. Since on the other hand part of the appeal of the WC is to discover hidden gems from yesteryears.brokenface on Mar 10 2017, 06:29:52 AM wrote:I'm all for a break.
Personally, if we did a smaller competition, i'd rather something like a single continent than single genre:
e.g. S.America. You could have 12 countries (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Venezuela, Paraguay, Uruguay, Ecuador + Mexico & Cuba). 4 groups of 3, winners go through to semi-finals + final. would be an 18 film tournament so not quite so daunting.
or Asia, maybe a 16 country tournament with straight KOs (16+8+4+2 = 30 films total)
or another idea I had for next full world cup would be to limit to 21st century films. That would even out some of the advantage that countries with loads of established canon classics have..
I do mean I like to do this in a few months time or after the summer, not straight away.
An Asia Cup, 16 countries, only knock-out matches with fixed "genres".
First round = 21st century
Quarter Finals = comedy
Semi Finals = crime
Finals = drama
