Here's the rules:

- 256 films
- Film must be made 1967 or after
- To vote, you have to have seen BOTH films that are going against each other.
- Each person gets 9 nominations, 7 seconds, and 7 thirds.
- To be in the tournament, a film has to be thirded.

Hopefully this will have a more unpredictable ending than the best film of all time will, because it will eliminate some of the "classics". Happy voting Posted Image

EDIT: I didn't even notice that I mistyped tournament. I wish I could change that Posted Image

I'll nominate:

Dawn of the Dead
Night of the Living Dead
Jaws
Day of the Dead (I know Justin will second this one)
Forrest Gump
Patton
Requiem For A Dream
The Evil Dead
The French Connection

I guess that does it for the nominations. I'll reserve my seconds and thirds for later. Also, someone has nominated Lawrence of Arabia and another person has seconded it when the film was made in 1962, which excludes it from this tourney.
