Default Announcement

I don't think I'm giving too much away if I announce that the Fiver By Committee will finally, FINALLY be published in this year's anniversary event. It was supposed to be in last year's, but the whole event was moved to this year for reasons of suckage.

Since that's still not for a while, I'm considering starting FBC2 early. It's high time we got another one going. We'll need a movie with enough popular appeal that everyone who wants to participate has seen it, or easily can. Any suggestions?

Why not aim for something big? I say we go for Blade Runner, or even 2001.

Yeah, it needs to be something big enough that a vast majority of the forumgoers here are familiar with it.

How about Raiders of the Lost Ark? Or Jurassic Park?

I'd suggest Matrix: Reloaded, but it's not nearly as memorable and I'm sure everyone would love a chance to work with different characters.

Yeah, not Reloaded. One FBC per franchise is plenty. 2001 and Jurassic Park are good examples of the sort of thing we're looking for; another would be, say, Terminator.

Once we have enough suggestions, I'll arrange a poll of the checklist variety, and we'll see what gets the most votes. (It's hard to narrow it down to one choice; best if people can just check off the ones they're familiar with.)

I may own Blade Runner, but I've never seen it.

Okay, suggestions: The Fifth Element, Armageddon, Independence Day, ET, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws.

Is there a Serenity Fiver anywhere?

Sorry, Serenity is mine (and if it weren't, it would go to Jade or Derek -- whoever won the fight to the death). Those other ideas are good, though.
