GREATEST FILM TOURNAMENT

Yeah I know its been done a dozen times already but I thought we were long overdue. Posted Image

No long drawn out nomination process with this one either.

For the sake of lunacy I'll be using the IMDB Top 250 . Posted Image

Since we have 6 open slots the first 6 people who post have 1 automatic nomination.

MASTER LIST

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
Rear Window
Seven Samurai
Star Wars

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.
