ABF Greatest Movie Tournament First Round Voting


Recommended Posts

To avoid posting 100 different threads and cluttering the board, I've decided to do this in one thread for every region, if there is a huge objection to it then I'll do it in poll form, but this way will be a lot less dominating for the rest of the board. People who don't want to participate shouldn't have to navigate through 12 different posts to find a topic they want to discuss, at least that's my opinion.

I will post the matchups, and those voting can copy and paste, and highlight their pick in red.

*VOTING WILL CLOSE @ 12:00 PM TOMORROW* (4/14/09)

16. L.A. Confidential (1997)

15. The Big Lebowski (1998)

3. 12 Angry Men (1957)

I want to participate in this, but I haven't seen many of these movies. For instance, I saw To Kill A Mockingbird many years ago in high school, and it was good, but how can I say that it's better or worse than 12 Angry Men, which I've never seen?

Unfortunately there are going to be a lot of people in that situation, I saw both of them in highschool, and loved them both, so it would be very difficult for me to decide. I'm almost glad I'm not voting. Just flip a coin or something, that's what I would do :lol:. Anything to just move it along.

I can do it like that, I'll just have to limit it to one region a day to avoid flooding the board, if enough people want it that way I'll do it that way.

Please don't. I think you had the right idea. This seems to be going very smoothly and the board isn't clogged up.

being color blind, it's a bit difficult for me to double check and make sure that I've highlighted everything correctly, so unless you change it to a poll, I'm going to simply copy and paste your matchup lists, and then simply delete the ones I'm not voting for...if that's ok with you... :huh: If not, let me know, and I'll go back and try the color highlighting again...
