    This is a tourney idea I've wanted to do for some time. Now that my Comcast webspace is all freed up and easier to access, I suppose it's a good time to get started. (For the sake of this tournament, we can allow packaging and cover art to mean the same thing.)

    1. Everyone gets ONE "auto in" pick.

    2. Everyone gets three nominations. This is the nomination stage ONLY. I'll be doling out seconds and thirds a bit later on.

    3. Please don't post any of the covers in this thread just yet. I'll handle all that stuff when the matchups start.

    4. Don't rush me. I sometimes take a day or three off from the Polls Area, but rest assured that I always return.

    Auto-picks:

    Band of Brothers
    The Blue Angel
    Dances with Wolves - Special Edition
    Fando and Lis
