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. Here we go! These movies are IN: 112 Angry Men 2After Hours 3Airplane! 4Alien 5American Graffiti 6Arsenic and Old Lace 7Assault on Precinct 13 8Before Sunrise 9Breakfast Club, The 10Can't Hardly Wait 11Cat On A Hot Tin Roof 12Christmas In July 13Clerks 14Cube 15Dazed and Confused 16Deep Rising 17Die Hard 18Die Hard 2: Die Harder 19Die Hard 3 20Do The Right Thing 21Dog Day Afternoon 22Dr. Strangelove 23Duel 24Escape From New York 25Evil Dead, The 26Fail-Safe 27Ferris Bueller's Day Off 28Friday the 13th 29Glengarry Glen Ross 30Go 31Groundhog Day 32Halloween 33Halloween 2 34Hard Day's Night, A 35High Noon 36It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World 37Lady Vanishes, The 38Mallrats 39My Dinner With Andre 40Mystery Train 41Night of the Living Dead 42Odd Man Out 43Picnic at Hanging Rock 44Quick Change 45Rat Race 46Reservoir Dogs 47Return of the Living Dead 48Roman Holiday 49Rope 50Run Lola Run 51Scrooged 52Sherlock, Jr. 53Sorry, Wrong Number 54Speed 55Taking of Pelham, One, Two, Three, The 56Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The 57Three O'Clock High 58Total Recall 59Training Day 60Trouble With Harry, The 61Usual Suspects, The 62Warriors, The 63What's Up Doc? 64Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

[quote] It's A Wonderful Life? That's kind of stretching it, don't ya think? [quote] I think so also, unless Vicki changes the rules. Jason had specified that flashbacks were OK, so long as there were not too many, nor too long. ‘Wonderful Life’, is mostly flashback.

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