    Damn, Justin got de tourney fever! [​IMG]

    Just FYI, I thoroughly PROTEST the 'no-Star Wars' clause!!! [​IMG]

    I'll nominate:

    Earth vs. The Flying Saucers (great Harryhausen FX!)
    Quatermass and the Pit

    I'll think of some more later.

    I was going to nom The Day the Earth Stood Still, but that's probably not what you're going for, is it?

    The Day the Earth Stood Still seems like a good nom to me, SteveGon.

    Nominate:

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    Galaxy Quest

    Men In Black

    Tenchi the Movie 2: The Daughter of Darkness-Wonderful anime which is one of the best Tenchi Muyo movies and most of the characters are aliens living on Earth.

    Back with more later.

    Brook, War of the Worlds has already been nominated so your nomination is probably a second and Starship Troopers is already in.

    I was under the impression that the exclusion of the Star Wars and Star Trek movies was to give this tourney a more even playing field, right? If that's the case, I feel that 2001 should be excluded as well.

    Ric, is that a nom for ID4?

    Mike, PITCH BLACK is already in automatically.

    In the THE BLOB remake, which is one of my favorite films, the creature is government made. Should I still include it, or not?

    Steve, I don't have a problem with THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL being included.

    Erik, I agree about 2001, and its not 100% what I was looking for, but I won't get rid of it unless some more people wish it out, because I don't want to piss anyone off.
