    PM votes? That sucks. Well at least I got a +1


    Vote sent in my usual method 506. Let me know if that suffices or not, I can always try the more traditional way of snail mail.

    Neverending Story beat The Dark Crystal???

    You people are merciless. I was encouraged by the win of Conan however (albiet the Ninja Turtles had a special place in my heart, if you didnt see that movie in a packed theater full of screaming drunk college frat boys then you didnt see it at all).

    Quest, you're dead to me now. :p

    A surprisingly difficult decision.


    Well, okay, not really, but still, I'm shocked that I actually had to stop and think for like a second. I mean, just a second, but still . . .

    This tournament is just going to get tougher and tougher with the decisions you're going to have to make in the future.

    There are a lot of blowouts in this round. Some films haven't even received one vote yet.
