Reviewers’ Pyramid Scheme 2017

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Reviewers' Pyramid Scheme.

This great initiative was first started by The_Llama from the "The Lingering Llamas" in 2014. The Pyramid Scheme is designed so you view more 48HOURS films and get more reviews. To earn the reward of more reviews, you need to watch and review every film posted in this thread.

In the words of The_Llama: "I will review every film posted in this thread, on the condition that anyone posting their film takes the time to review each of the others shared here."

Please post your 2017 film. Remember your commitment once you do: you'll review every other film that gets posted here. To be clear, that's every film posted before and every film posted after you join the scheme.

I'll be coming back to this thread. I look to watching and reviewing your film.

In the meantime, please review our 2017 entry.

Wellington Finals Discussion

No musicals for the Wellington finals this year. Genre breakdown below. Z-Grade leads with 3 films.

3 x Z-Grade
2 x Action
2 x Survival
2 x Thriller

One film each for: Alien, Buddy, Christmas, Fairytale / Fantasy, Horror Comedy and Science-Fiction.

Congratulations to all of the finalists and nominations. We are super stoked with the cinematography nomination. The quality in this competition continues to be raised. I viewed some great films that missed the cut. Talented teams like Couch Kumaras missing the 15 shows how high the quality is here. Look forward to the finals.

City Finalists discussion thread

Congratulations to all of the finalists. Nice work!

I am sure it will change but interesting that only 1 of the 15 Wellington finalists is in the top 10 leaderboard right now.

PJ Wildcard

Peter Jackson selects his Wildcards from the shorts.

How does this work? Any idea? Obviously his time is too valuable to be watching 800 short films. My guess is he selects from the city finalists that don't get selected for the grand finals.

Would that mean some pretty good films (Sneaky Horses, Traces of Nut, Couch Kumaras etc) wouldn't get viewed by PJ? However all city finalists from the 'Naki and Gizzy will?
