Candidate for Good Article quality status

I've gone ahead and nominated this article to WP:GAN for consideration as a Good Article quality status candidate. :) Cheers, — Cirt (talk) 18:30, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

This looks like an easy one. From a quick preliminary glance, there are a few dead links, but it's well sourced, the prose is excellent, ...there might be a few minor stylisation issues (repeated links, some of the date styles are mismatched), but nothing that explicitly conflicts with the GA criteria. I'll probably do the review by Wednesday if nothing gets in my way. Osiris (talk) 13:28, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thank you very much for the kind words, I'll see you over at Talk:The War for Late Night/GA1 when you get a chance. :) — Cirt (talk) 17:47, 8 December 2012 (UTC)
Reading/checking through it now... Osiris (talk) 12:44, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
Sounds great, keep me posted. :) — Cirt (talk) 19:39, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

Hrm, well I'd prefer to keep a little bit more of that, but okay for now I guess. :) — Cirt (talk) 22:18, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
I think the bit mentioning who directed and starred could probably be kept. The awards list is probably better left on the film's article for now. Osiris (talk) 12:43, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
I'll let you finish reading through and I'll defer to your judgment about both those things. :) — Cirt (talk) 19:39, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
