    Tournament Rules

    [ul][li]The bracket will be generated at random when we have 128 nominations.[/li]

    [li]Read the latest posts to make sure you are voting on the current bracket.[/li]

    [li]The Final Four will have each bracket open for approximately 48 hours.[/li]

    [li]Please do not vote more than once using socks.[/li]

    [li]All decisons of the Tournament Director (me) are final. Unless I change my mind.[/li][/ul]

    You are all big boys and girls, and can therefore research films at [link=http://us.imdb.com/]IMBD[/link] without me linking each film. :) Perhaps you could take this opprtunity to view a film you haven't seen, or watch one again. I don't know about where you live, but the public library in my city has most of these titles that can be checked out for free on DVD or VHS. :D

    Films eliminated in the second round are in red
