    The Rules and Such!

    [li]Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote your opinion.... not that of anyone else. :) [/li]

    [li]Each Soundtrack has a link to amazon.com which has little clips from most tracks on the soundtracks for you to listen to. If you need to jog your memory, please use these :) If you are not familair with one soundtrack, but love the other, it is alright to vote for the one you like. If you are not very familiar with either, though, please vote abstain. If you don't see a favorite, I apologize, but I had to narrow it down to 32 options or it wouldn't be a mini tournament! :p [/li]

    [li]This tournament will have a new vote APPROXIMATELY every 24 hours. You will be alerted that a new group is up to vote because the title will change. DUe to RL issues, this flucuates, but it is always at least 24 hours. [/li]

    [li]2 pairs at a time will be voted on until close to the end of the mini-tourny[/li]

    [li]To vote, all you need to do is look at the most recent vote announcement (one of my posts, and it will have a colored bar saying "NEW VOTE" for easy visual identification) and select your favorite from each pair. Feel free to vote for only one of the pairs if that is what you want. [/li]

    [li]Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. [/li]

    [li]If at any time you'd like to see who has been eliminated and who is still in the running, please check the 2nd post of this thread, where I will be crossing out all eliminated options.[/li]

    [li] As always, all the normal rules apply. If you are found to be breaking the JC rules in this thread you will receive a warning, and may be forbidden from participating in the tournament after that. No voting with socks! If you have any questions PLEASE PM me!! Great abuse of sock voting could result in a ban.[/li]

    And that is all! Enjoy :)

    No question about this one.

    As for the second pairing.... :( :_| Both are totally awesome! But I have to go with Star Wars. It really is a classic, and that's not just the Star Wars nerd in me talking.

    A New Hope

    This is a really easy round, as Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan are probably his weakest scores in recent memory (they're both good scores, but they can't compare to the others).

    Yeah... for the record, the brackets are TOTALLY randomized, so what gets paired up gets paried up... not my decisions.

    MY vote:

    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    A New Hope

    I agree this is a pretty easy round as far as choices go, but I have to say that one track, fall of the heros (or something similar) is really awesome. So sad. I have it on John Williams Greatest Hits 1999, i believe.

    "Hymn to the Fallen". It's an amazing cue, but the rest of the score is much more subdued.

    EDIT: BTW, just noticed that there's an "s" missing from JW's name in the title.

    Oh no! Does this mean Raiders and A New Hope will face off in the next round?!? I love them both - I could see them both in the finals.

    Will this round be a sweep?

    Also, I'm betting any money; any money at all, that Empire or ANH will win.
