Should I send you a ballot as well?

Definitely.

I should also clarify that just because a film is on jbissell's list of three films doesn't mean it can't be on your Top 6. Films can appear on both lists.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Looking over the resurrection list was painful, it's like the forums took a giant crap all over the science fiction and horror genres this round.

Oh yeah, the films I sent in,

1. The Shining
2. The Fly
3. Re-Animator
4. Ferris Bueller's Day Off
5. The Terminator
6. They Live

When looking over what was kicked out you miss the things that weren't kicked out, which included a fair amount of horror and sci-fi (well, some). A lot of great comedies got booted in the first two rounds as well. :'(

6. They Live

I added this in as my #6 to the five I posted earlier.

Also, Repo Man is the one of jb's three that I haven't seen and something I'm curious about so I'm hoping for that.

12 ballots in so far from the 32 different people who've completed verdicts for the bracket.

I'm hoping to get at least another 5 ballots, so that representation is over fifty percent.

Deadline is 24 hours from now. Then we'll plow through the rest of these resurrections.

By the way, if anyone who earned a 2nd round resurrection isn't around to make their choice, it'll become another Consensus Resurrection, and the next highest vote-getter on these ballots will get the nod. Right now, two films are neck-and-neck for the top spot, with a decent-sized lead on the rest of the pack.

I'll get this first Resurrection section in but I'd appreciate it if we could delay the next few until after the weekend as I'm heading up north to relax.

Well, so long as there are three films left from your consensus res ballot we can treat that as your three picks and use the ranking as your vote so I don't think you'll need to offer more input at least until flieger is up for his first.

I guess. Although my 3 picks that I'd have other people vote on would not necessarily be the same as my top 6. If I'm properly understanding how this works.
