July Challenge: Image
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Hi,

First of all, thank you for the schedule, that's not an easy task. Trying to watch more movies, I came back here and I wonder what exactly means "run the director" ? I saw in an another message something like "watching 3+ movies" from the same director, but I'm not sure ; the challenge as to be about one director by participant ? or a least 3 movies by the same director and then another one ?

I'm not sure to participate to challenges for now, so if my question is unclear, don't bother ^^ I still have to maintain a correct rythm before thinking of challenges. And this one is in july, so there is plenty of time !

thanks !

I believe your first interpretation is correct - watch 3 or more films by the same director. I have not heard of a top limit put on the number of films that can be watched by any one director, but the host will decide that closer to the actual challenge. :cheers:

Sol - I was away for all the final discussions but I am happy with the way this shook out. Once again, you did a fine job getting it all to come together in a meaningful way.

I'm not hosting RTD but I'm guessing you have to see at least 3 movies by one director before you move on to the next. Probably need to post the first 3 to even get points though, so nobody will end up with 1 or 2 points at the end.

This was my understanding also; You have to watch at least 3 movies by the same director, you chose. And then you could get extra points if you watched a fourth, fifth.. movie by the same director or you could move on to another. We could also do Bonus side challenges, like for most movies by the same director. The idea behind the challenge is to give people the incentive to focus on the works from directors they want to dive (more) into.
The exact rules are still up for debate of course.

Thanks for all the thanks everyone. The discussion here was more heated than last year, but it was pleasing to see everyone's passion for the Challenge Series and it was great to find everyone talking through their differences in a polite and civilised manner. :poshclap:

Yup. This is exactly what I envisioned when I recommended it. I'm hoping I'll be able to host when the time comes. I've got a few different ideas for bonus challenges.
