2024 Challenge Ideas: Nomination Thread (Nominations Closed)

Post by blocho »

2024 Challenge Ideas: Nomination Thread

Here is the schedule for the process for determining the 2024 challenge:
September 22 to October 2: Thread for nominating challenge ideas.
October 3 to October 16: Single poll opened to vote on challenge ideas for 2024.
October 17: Discussion can begin on setting up the schedule for the 2024 challenges.

We will continue with the same guidelines from last year:
- Everyone will only be able to nominate up to two challenge ideas for 2024.
- Those who have hosted challenges over the past 12 months will be allowed to nominate more (incentives for hosting).
- You can also nominate fewer than the maximum. It's perfectly fine to just nominate one idea.
- At least a couple of hundred movies should fit into your idea. For example, "movies directed by James Cameron" is not a good nomination because not enough movies fit into that category.

The following users are entitled to nominate more than two Challenge ideas.
Spoiler
blocho - 9 nominations in total (i.e. 7 bonus ideas; one extra idea per challenge hosted)
gunnar - 8
shugs - 6
Fergenaprido - 5
maxwelldeux - 5
peeptoad - 4
sol - 4
zzzorf - 3
flavo5000 - 3
mightysparks - 3
Lammetje - 3
sacmersault - 3
Kublai Khan - 3
Klaus78 - 3
DulceDoes - 3
RogerTheMovieManiac88 - 3
The following challenge ideas are "permanent" and will be placed in the 2024 Challenge Schedule without being voted on:

Horror / Noir / <400 Checks / Documentary / Directed by Women / Western / SciFi+Fantasy / Silent / TraveltheWorld / DTCnominees / 1000<400 / Animation

The following genre challenges are on a rotational basis and will be placed in the 2024 Challenge Schedule without being voted on:

Comedy / Mystery/Thriller / Action

The following genre challenges are on a rotational basis and will be placed in the 2025 Challenge Schedule without being voted on:

Musical / War / Crime

A separate process is used to circle through the Country/Region Challenges.

NOTE: This thread is not a poll, but rather a thread to nominate and discuss poll options.

Thanks for hosting, blocho.

One thing that I think that we should discuss is adding decade challenges on a rotational basis similar to the genre challenges. We talked about it a little bit back during the 1970s challenge in June.

If we decided to do that, it might look something like this:

2024 - 1930s, 1960s, 2000s
2025 - 1940s, 1980s, 2010s
2026 - 1950s, 1970s, 1990s

Since the 1970s and 1990s are the most recent decade challenges that were held, I put them in the third year. If they were added in this fashion, this would cut down the number of available slots by 3 each year. 1920s and earlier are mostly covered by the Silent Era challenge, except for a few stray 1920s sound films which could be allowed in the 1930s challenge if the host was so inclined. It also leaves out 2020s, though that could be run as a write in like the New Releases Challenge.

The downside would be 3 fewer slots for new or other ideas, but each decade would only run once every three years. If only 2 slots were allocated, it would take 5 years to run through them all.

Thoughts?

Adding decade challenges on a rotational basis seems like a fine idea, but I think it has to be a separate discussion. For now, would you nominate any decade challenges you like for 2024, and maybe set up a separate thread or use the Future Challenges thread to discuss adding decade challenges to the rotational groups?

I nominate Conquer The Time challenge that covers any movie set in a specific year, for example Saving Private Ryan is 1944, Blade Runner 2019 and Kingdom of Heaven 1184, and the goal is to collect as many years as you can.

Fascinating idea. So movies without a clearly identifiable year would be ineligible? What about movies that take place across multiple years?

The year would've to be specified or easy to determine (e.g. a film related to some historical event whose date is known). In case of multiple years, I'm not sure, but I guess you should just pick one, based on your judgement/preference.

- bronze medal hunt
All icm lists are in. You state the amount of bronze you have still to get at the start of the challenge and the aim is to achieve as much of those as possible. Maybe it gets complicated when you get a score for amount of movies seen ánd amount of bronzes achieved? for the leader board that last one might have to be just the "bonus" of this particular challenge

other medals and/or an all medals variant could also exist, but personally the bronzes would get me most motivated I think

- films that premiered and/or competed at ...(insert big festival name)
My personal interest if we'd run that only once would be Locarno. This list could be the basis for eligibility:
https://letterboxd.com/amechsner89/list ... mpetition/
which gives 757 movies for this option at the moment

Nominating the "Run the ..." ideas, they're always good fun. I hope Run the Writer actually passes the nomination phase this time.
- Run the Actor
- Run the Director
- Run the Writer

For some schlocky goodness:
- Low IMDb Rating
- Cult/Grindhouse

And something that I think I saw proposed a long time ago:
- Six Degrees of Separation

Basically, every movie posted must share a connection with the previous one.

1. Jurassic Park
2. Star Wars - John Williams is involved in both as a composer
3. Red Tails - George Lucas is a producer for this, and the director of Star Wars
4. American Gangster - Cuba Gooding Jr stars in both

I'll nominate two challenges that were quite fun in previous years:

Waves From Around the World
Experimental

Knowing I have used up my vote, I'll just be spitballing a few other ideas:

- Recommendations (Each participant recommends X films and gets a new vote after they have seen X films)
- Behind the Iron Curtain (Films made in the Communist Bloc during the Cold War)
- Cold War: Films Specifically About the Cold War (from either side, or after its end)
- Samurai/Chambara (I think we did one before)
- Minimalism

I always keep thinking about setting up an ICMFFF challenge, but given that it goes from the middle of one month to another, it might be better with an unofficial challenge.

I guess you mean Degrees of Separation, one of my favourite challenges. It's been held a few times in the past —I was the host in 2017— but the last times I suggested it didn't get enough support. I don't know, maybe people think it can be just too open or vague. If that's the case, it could be easily fixed by restricting the type of connections used, allowing only connections by cast, for example.

Does this mean that a participant would pursue bronze on only one list and then, once achieved, could move on to another list? Because without that, I think it's actually just: watch movies on an official list challenge.

(Even though that probably kills the chance of it getting support ;))

If it needs that to make it a worthy challenge, sure. Maybe some midway where you can pick 2 or 3 lists, for just a slight bit of variety...?

Yes, that's the one. Got stuck on the six for some reason. I guess we could tune the details if it passes the nomination.

This seemed to be fairly popular as a Bonus Challenge during the 1970s Challenge so this sounds good to me.

Yup, the one actual terrorist (AFAIK) that I've ever interacted with. Here's his Wiki bio. Famous! He must be pleased. Ah that brings back memories. It wasn't much fun dealing with people like that - and I remember he had several good threads deleted "for the lulz" which made the half of us who were not trolls pretty pissed - but it's kind of entertaining looking back on it now from a distance. TIme heals I guess.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

OK I have my couple.

I think in a past year's discussion I proposed Time Travel - which really was a bit too restrictive. So on thinking about it, this year I'll propose Films Involving TIme and Memory, which would included any and all time travel/time loop films, but also films that proceed entirely in backwards chronology (i.e. Memento, Betrayal) and films that deliberately follow an achronological pattern, leaping about in time - which would include films like Cloud Atlas, Evolution of a Filipino Family, Once Upon a Time in America, Time Regained, Mirror, Distant Voices Still Lives and the 2019 Little Women. And films where memory, and how it shapes us and how unreliable it can be, is of great importance - I'm thinking Edvard Munch, India Song and for that matter Citizen Kane here. And a good chunk of films from Alain Resnais including Marienbad and Muriel. But not just films that use time/memory in a simple, convenient way to jazz up a story, like a lot of films noir - Out of the Past is a prime example - because often you could remove the "today" framing device from such films and it would change very little. Memory should be a major theme throughout the work.

and I think I may have proposed this before but what the hell, I find coming up with ideas for challenges tough (how're you going to do nine, blocho): Same Story, Different Films - watch at least 3 different versions of the same original story, whether direct remakes of one film or just different adaptations of the same novel/play/comic book/etc. Not as boring as you might think it would be!

Pretty sure there are tons of films that qualify, the challenge is to find a comprehensive list (the one St. Glode found is fine but not great and far from complete)

So all Bollywood, Turkish films, Russian comedies, and recent TV series then? AWESOME.

I just checked because I was curious, and if you look at features films, restricted to those with 1000 votes or more, 34 of the top 50 are Indian (or South Asian - just going by the names, I didn't look closely at each film). 3 are Turkish, 7 are American (the top films on the top 250). And those are all rated 8.9-10.0 (yes, the top fim is rated 10 right now, with just over 1k votes). If you lower the vote numbers it's even more lopsided.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..
