Title: IMDB Top 250 movies TOURNAMENT!!
Post by: lud on February 13, 2013, 02:57:13 PM
I see on the internet at various different forums circling the voting or tournaments for best movie ...

So I think it is time that I and my taste in this


-------------------------------------------------- -----------------------
R U L E S ::
-------------------------------------------------- -----------------------
1, As the name says, this is a tournament of 250 current movies
rankings on imdb rankings

2, from round to round number for the film will be reduced in half, until
we get the grand finale in which two films remain

3, the system is based on the principle movie vs. movie

4 , Pairings will be directed type 1 vs 250, 249 vs 2
Today's ranking is valid

5, I would pray that no one became ugly and offensive comments


I hope full support, c, c,

Hi, Lud!

There's no tactful way to say it, so I'll just say it: Some of your posts are a bit disjointed, and I'd like to know that you're a real human being. Could you please tell us, in your own words, what brings you to these forums?

Thanks!

Damned, I can't in good conscience vote.  I've only seen one in each match.

How to Train Your Dragon gets my only vote, as I too haven't seen all the matches from the other entries.

That says, Shawshank would get my vote for the first one no matter what, since I am contractually obligated to vote for that movie wherever and whenever it comes up.

I do think we need to do our watching party of the 100 movies you have to see.

I opted out of that thread so I don't have to see them.

I thought we went over this.  The thread was not titled "100 movies that you may want to see".  It was movies that you must see.  My lawyer will be contacting you.

I still haven't seen all of the movies from the 103 Movies You Must See list. I have a list of the films I haven't seen (only about 20 or so, but still.)
