    GK, wouldn't it be a good idea to have the name of the current bracket that's being voted on in the title? just so people know when it's a new round.

    Apparently I didn't think to abstain from voting against The Final Conflict, considering I've never heard it, so please disregard my vote for Dances With Wolves.

    I think it's ok to vote for a score you really like over one you haven't heard - but this may be a good opportunity to check out scores you haven't experienced, either by watching the film itself, or giving the soundtrack a listen. At least sampling a bit of the score on iTunes or Amazon might give you an idea.

    But for those who want to abstain, I understand.
