Update: I have had a few readers mention that their request forms did not go through. If you submitted requests in the form and do not see them below, please leave a comment or email to let me know what they were. I have removed the submission form for now so it doesn’t eat more requests. Feel free to request films via email, comments or Twitter. Thank you for your patience!
I’m going to be having another Reader Request theme month and I’m asking you to help me select the films that I will be reviewing. Is there a movie you’ve been wanting me to get around to? Do tell!
I have held two reader request events and had a great time with both of them. (Here is the first event and the second, should you wish to enjoy previous selections.) If you are new around here, this is how it will work:
Tell me the films, stars or directors you would like to see covered. (Here is my alphabetical index, if you want to check to see if your film of choice was already reviewed.)
I will look through the requests and select four films for review. I usually look to cover a wide variety of pictures. Popular and obscure, Hollywood and foreign, funny and serious. The theme month will be held in March of 2016.
Easy, isn’t it? I really and truly appreciate your feedback and take your requests very seriously. These events help me spot thin areas of my silent film coverage and you’re helping me to make my website more complete than ever.
So go ahead! Request away!
Note: I held a poll to determine which film would be my 200th review. Ben-Hur came in just ahead of It (1927). Since the contest was so close, I have decided to review It for the Reader Request month.
Update: Please don’t feel that you are limited to only three requests. If you have more films in mind, share them by all means.
