    It's that time again: movie tournament time! We have plenty of spaces open (all of them, in fact), and we need your suggestions and favorites to fill them. The rules of nominating are simple:

  2. Maximum of four movie nominations per post, with no back-to-back (or back-to-back-to-back) posts.

  3. The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are all off-limits.

  4. Note that nominations will not be counted more than once for each movie, so there's no need to name one that's already been nominated. Also, please provide links to descriptions of the movies you nominate (using Wikipedia if possible) in order to expedite the process.

    Awesome! A tournament again!

    Is this simply a redo of / updated version of the 2003 movie tournament, Loyal? :D

    Precisely. RotS wasn't even out when we had the last one, and that's seven more years worth of new movies and old movies people have since gotten around to seeing. :p

    Wonderful! Good idea!

    Let's make use of those new years and pop in some very recent films ...

    Despised; I do believe that the six primary Star Wars films have been stripped of rank and left stranded at the door for this tourney.

    Tyi has it right: it'd be grossly one-sided (or six-sided, as the case may be) otherwise. ;)

    I'm confused Drac; why would you actually nominate such a film as Plan 9?? [face_laugh]
