The Rules Are Clear

Posted: January 30, 2013 by Inkar Yerzhan in Movies

Heraldo may well challenge the bunker rules, however his argument is not valid.

I refer specifically to the wording in the rules ‘Movie titles’ – and subsequent mention of prequels, sequels and sidequels…….. if Heraldo wishes to nominate ‘Star Wars’ as a title then this would be the original Star Wars, other movies that have Star Wars in the title (ie Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope), and are sequels and prequels, are separate titles and would therefore count as ‘another movie’.

Whilst this is an unfortunate restriction of what is truly an epic film series (and franchise) exceptions cannot be made.

Heraldo maybe able to ‘free-up’ a spot with an extra Star Wars episode guaranteed if three (3) members were to unanimously vote out Gone With The Wind…

 

The Rules Have Been Challenged

Att: Bunker Community!

Heraldo Fernando has officially challenged the rules of The Bunker. Yes, you read right – Title Nominations have not even closed yet and there is a challenge already.

Upon notification of the official rules (as can be seen on the Where’s This Bunker & What’s This All About page) Heraldo Fernando has advised he will NOT be specifying which exact title(s) from the multitude of series that make up his current movie nominations due to the fact that they fundamentally all share the same name. For example, the Star Wars series all begin with the TitleStar Wars‘ –

Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace

Star Wars II: Attack Of The Clones

Star Wars III: Revenge Of The Sith

Star Wars IV: A New Hope

Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back

Star Wars VI: Return Of The Jedi

Heraldo believes that in adherence with the rules he should be allowed to simply nominate ‘Star Wars’ and this will encompass all movies with this title. Interestingly enough however this argument does not extend to Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Heraldo also is of the firm belief that many movies series are not really to be regarded as 1, 2, 3 etc, but are actually regarded as 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 etc….

What say The Bunker Community?

Lester would have you believe that he is a hard-nosed no-nonsense Government official born without a sympathetic gland in his body, however when Connor Temple finds himself ‘between apartments’ (again) Lester extends his hospitality to Connor, proving he isn’t actually all bad.

I am already having grave concerns about the rules. Odina Karimov has listed Gone With The Wind – does that mean the other three of us have to sit through four hours of torture to unanimously vote out something we already know is terrible, we cannot be convinced otherwise….
