Steve, I was stupid and realized that after I posted. I always use that word to describe these movies, so I typed it without thinking. How do I get a mod to do that? Also, great noms! I love those films!

Erik, it will be started up again tomorrow.

Damn, too much confusion. Back to nominating 12 Monkeys.

Never mind that question, Steve, as I PM'ed mod Jason Whyte about it.

BTTF 2?? I'm not so sure that qualifies. I'll see what others think.

Some really great noms so far! Posted Image

Someone needs to review the HTF Rules:

Quote:
6. Please do not post any profanity (harsh or mild) in the TOPIC/SUBJECT of your post. We want to keep the Main Forum Page a presentable one. You may include profanity in the body of the post as long as it is not used excessively, or towards another member.

The original title of this thread was "The Mindfuck Movies - the tournament". For a brief moment, I was tempted to change it to "The Mindfuck Movies - the deleted thread" Posted Image, but I opted for a less intrusive alternative.

Thanks for fixing that, Michael. Posted Image

The list has been updated, and I'm going to give out two more noms, seconds, and thirds to everyone who has participated so far, and I'm also going to give myself one second and one third that I'll use later.
