    Seeing as how most of the current tourneys include some form of nominating process, I got to wondering if we could have a tourney of ALL nominated films.
    The first part is simple. Each participant is allowed to list TWO movies that they'd like to see included in the tourney. Once I have a good number of titles, I'll close nominations and bracket the movies randomly. (I'll post a message when I'm about to close nominations so maybe some latecomers will get involved.) This tournament is open to all members, regardless of whether they've offered nominations or not.
    I'll keep this list updated regularly so people don't nominate the same movies. I certainly hope this tourney is met with more enthusiasm than that ill-fated "crappy sequels" one I did last year. The unpopularity of that tourney scarred me for life. [​IMG]
    You needn't worry about "seconds". Once you mention your two titles, they're in. My choices were Dark City and Young Frankenstein. Here's the current list:

    OK, so far so good. There were two movies nominated twice (2001 and Goodfellas), so Stefan Pedersen and Joe D can each pick one more title.
