For anyone voting the last option, I should probably explain what this is all about.  Basically, we compiled a list of 200 of the best American films of the 90s, and then we began matching up films to face off against each other.  Pairs are assigned to bracket participants at random, they watch or (re)watch the two films, pick one of the films to advance to the next round, and post a verdict reviewing the films and explaining their decision.  It's all pretty great, I think.  You can see the current results here (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=3439.msg103057#msg103057), along with links to all the individual verdicts.

If you're interested and would like to join in once round two begins, just let me know.  :)

I like that there is no "I haven't watched either of my movies and I don't plan on it" option.

So, given the current poll results, I'm thinking we can definitely get under ten matchups remaining by the end of this weekend (we're currently at fourteen).  No problem, right?

I will definitely be able to move into this category: I've watched one of my films so far, but I can definitely get to the other one in the next couple weeks.

I just assumed "I haven't watched either film yet, but I can definitely get to it in the next couple weeks." was perpetual.

D'oh!  The one time I really meant to check the "allow users to change vote" option, I forgot.  I guess I'll just set the counts back to zero tomorrow, then... encore voting!

Alright, I've reset this poll.  Please vote again so we can see if we've made any progress.  It's really past time to wrap up this first round.  People are counting on us!

If you kindly check my netflix, I've decided to stop delaying. I'll be sending one dvd back today and another soon. And then, the end of my first round!

Oh, and if you just voted for one of the first two options, well, I just slightly edited what you voted for.

Well, if by *this week* you mean, "the next 7 days", I'm comfortable with that.

By this week I mean maybe by next weekend. Maybe. Or I could just give it to Braveheart.
