I am compiling a list of movies that I have access to that do not have reviews on the site. So, I think I will begin by watching or re-watching these so that I can write reviews as time permits. In short, I am most likely going to be subjecting myself to a bunch of stinkers early on. Last year’s exhausting marathon just wasn’t painful enough for me so I am going to up the torture factor this year. :rofl:

I realize my “to watch” pile is actually enough for the fest, but I don’t have much time before it, and upon returning from my vacation will only have a few days… I will see what I can do :slight_smile:
the fest is upon us, fellas

I’ve got my 30 picked for this year. No theme as such, but I’m going to randomise my choices. Every year thus far, I’ve not just thought about which films I’m going to watch, I’ve put considerable thought into which film I’m going to watch on which specific day. As you can imagine, this leads to a lot of hand-wringing over which spag feels most like a second-Saturday spag, or which spags have most got that Monday Night vibe, or which spag feels like an ideal opener this year, or which spag needs to close my 'Fest out on the thirtieth, et cetera.

Well, not this year. This year, planning be damned! I’ve listed my 30 spags alphabetically, and numbered them accordingly. Next, it’s a trip to Tesco to pick up 30 ping pong balls which I’ll number and stuff into a sack. Then, every night I’ll have a “Draw At Sundown” to determine what I’m watching. Maybe I’ll get mrs.caress to give my ball-sack a vigorous jiggle before I knock one out each evening. Ooh, matron!

I’ve also put The Savage Pampas in amongst my picks this year. I know it’s not a spag really but bumholes to it. Maybe next year I’ll theme my SpagvemberFest entirely with movies that feel kind-of spaggy for one reason or another without them actually being spags at all. The Savage Pampas, Man, Pride and Vengeance, an episode or two of The Mandalorian etc etc

which version? I now have the German UHD and the French Blu here and I am thinking of watching them both :))

I’ve got the Busch Media Group blu from 2016. Die Verfluchten der Pampas. :+1:

If I had the time and equipment, I would love to do a shot by shot comparison for schnittberichte.com but thre is a chance that the differences may not be as substantial as I am imagining

Do whatever feels right for you Asa, that’s usually the best way. A little too much information and image creation at the end though :blush: :exploding_head:

Anyone took care of these? I might do something similar to the ones made last year.

I’ve been putting some stuff on a pile list as well. Although I don’t believe I’ll be able to watch a movie per day as done in the previous years. Most of the stuff on it are lesser know movies, some Zorros and german westerns are listed. I don’t expect roses. Still, I’ll be joining the marathon.

The ones you did last year were phenomenal.

Alright folks, just a few days out :slight_smile: I need some graphics for social media and the newsletter to advertise this, who can make one?

Edit: @p.pereira sent me one… stay tuned


Heres my current watchlist for Spagvember 2022. I’m a lot more busy these days so my goal is to get through atleast 20, although I’m gonna try my best to do all 30.
