    I have my computer back, and Jason hasn't posted on HTF since 11/13, so I'm taking this thing over. I'm starting from scratch with a new thread so I can edit this original post.
    A very important things concerning this tourney:
    I have e-mail notification on and it's easier for me to count votes as they come into my mailbox. Once this tourney has started, I'll only come to this thread to post updates, vote (yes, I'll be voting) and general interjections, so take heed: If you EDIT your posts to change something, I will NOT see it. I only see originals, not edits. If you want to make a change, better to just post again, or else your change will go unseen by me.

    I think that since the main, most important, action takes place in one night, It's A Wonderful Life should qualify.
