70 of 203 — 34.5%.

This could have been the quickest first round of a bracket ever.

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

Retro Filmspots is just so captivating!  How can we not get caught up by it?

I'm so sorry. Haven't caught the bug yet. :(
It's nice to see the community so enthusiastic over something though.

I'll cheer from the sideline.

Any reason in particular you are holding back? Not just a question for you, but for the few that have mentioned they arent participating.

It's basically lack of time. Too many other movies cometing for my interest. I can't just dedicate myself to solely watching 1957 movies when I'm trying to catch up with what's been going on in theatres the last 20 years (I've missed a lot) AND trying to catch the newest films.

Certainly I watch old movies once in a while and I enjoy it but I don't want to leave out everything else to participate in this project.

Lobby, I watched Drive Angry 3D (not in 3D) in between Throne of Blood and Paths of Glory. I don't think anybody is requiring that you devote your entire filmwatching time to the retrospots. It's just a fun thing to do if you happen to be watching a movie. If you watch 10 movies between now and the time the Retrospots end, why not make one or two of them from the Retrospots?
