    It seems inevitable that 2001 will win this, but what the hell, why not?

    Brian: I recommend that you subject your more obscure choices (e.g., Six Pack, 7 Golden Vampires) to the seconding process.

    Nominate:
    12 Monkeys
    The 39 Steps
    Seven Samurai

    Second:
    The Seventh Seal

    I'll nominate

    Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs
    Double Indemnity
    The Magnificent Seven
    Stalag 17
    The Dirty Dozen

    I know Double Indemnity and Dirty Dozen don't have numbers per se, but neither do Third Man, Close Encounters, etc.

    However, if you disallow them, then replace them with

    Seven Year Itch
    Sorry, Wrong Number

    If you disallow Sorry, Wrong Number, then replace it with

    It Happened One Night

    That all makes sense doesn't it? [​IMG]

    I'll second:

    Apollo 13

    I'm not sure on Double Indemnity. For some reason it doesn't seem to gel with me. No offense.

    Erik, I promise I'm not picking on you. However, I'm not going to allow LOTR:TTT. While it does have a number in the title, it is a sequel. I know that the "two" in the title isn't in reference to part 2, but I still am not allowing it. Sorry

    I'll replace that nomination with Sixteen Candles.

    Second First Blood.

    I don't know why I am participating in your tourney Kissinger, considering the link you gave to Steve as a recommendation for someone to nominate for the "crazy" tourney!

    When will you admit, publicly, your love for NASCAR!?
