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.

Yes, my 3 picks were not necessarily my top 3 picks. I figured something like The Shining and, hopefully, Raging Bull would be saved by the larger group without me bringing them up.

No chess about my resurrection, assuming it hasn't been when things fall to me, I'm resurrecting my #1, Full Metal Jacket. Not sure how I'll use my later resurrection though.

The number of responses has already exceeded my expectations, given how short the window was. I think things are pretty much set -- but I'll give it until tonight to be sure. The next (and final) ballot, which will have a Monday night deadline, will have three parts: 1) a run-off vote for the top four films for the consensus resurrection; 2) Beavermoose's three candidates for resurrection; and 3) flieger's three candidates for resurrection.

Anyone (not named Bondo, flieger, or Beavermoose) want to guess which four films will be a part of the consensus run-off vote?

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

My 6 were:

1.) Ferris Bueller's Day Off
2.) Raging Bull
3.) The Purple Rose of Cairo
4.) Gremlins
5.) Near Death
6.) After Hours

Edit: Why do I do this to myself? I keep refreshing the page every 10 minutes when I know Pix isn't even going to post the results tonight.

Oh right. Procrastination.

Here's how the films finished for jbissell's resurrection:

The Verdict - 42
Midnight Run - 41
Repo Man - 31

The Verdict had a big lead in the early voting, but Midnight Run almost completed a very strong comeback.
