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.


Oh right (duh)! I had 2 Seconds left, so that gives me a third Second.

NOMINATE:

Raising Arizona
Reds

SECOND:

Patton


That leaves me with 2 Seconds and 2 Thirds left.

I'll second Patton , but wouldn't it be easier to save ourselves the trouble and just declare 2001 the winner now?Posted Image

Considering that there are 5 films eligible for this tournament that are better* than 2001, I'd say no. Posted Image

Brook K THIRDED these earlier:


Animal House
Eyes Wide Shut
Moulin Rouge
Planes, Trains & Automobiles


I'm keeping a list for myself, and I noticed the absence of Moulin Rouge in your list. (I always notice the absence of Moulin Rouge, don't you know!)



Scott Weinberg, you THIRDED The Godfather, The Godfather Part II, Schindler's List and 2001: A Space Odyssey, but SteveGon had thirded them just before you, so you get those back. I wasn't sure if you noticed that.

If you don't want those extra 4 thirds, I'll take 'em off your hands. Posted Image (I'm chomping at the bit to second and third some more)

Second:

Ghostbusters
Fast Times at Ridgemont High


Third:

Magnolia
The Princess Bride


Remaining:

2 seconds and 5 thirds

Need for Update: Halloween was seconded twice by Scott Weinberg and ErikG, so Halloween should be in and ErikG gains a second and looses a third.
