Hey, guess what, everybody?  It's time to vote on stuff again!!!  :D

Here's the deal.  We need to figure out the correct seeding for the original sixty-two films that started this bracket.  This will be key both in determining the second round pairings and also in helping to decide which sixteen losing films from the first round most deserve a second chance.

So here's the plan:  All participants in the 90s Bracket should copy the below list of films into a private message to me, and then separate the films they've seen into the same five categories we used last time:

- The Films You Would Fight to the Death for (limit to 6 films)

- The Films You're Really Really Glad Made It into the Bracket (unlimited)

- The Films You Would Have Leaned Towards Including (unlimited)

- The Films You Would Have Leaned Against Including (unlimited)

- The Films You Really Really Would Have Wanted to Keep Out of the Bracket (unlimited)

Please only vote for films you've seen and can personally vouch for or against.  You can delete the rest.  Also, while you're limited to six films in the first group (the films you would fight to the death for), you don't have to max out that number.  If there's just one or two films you're that passionate about, that's fine.

Here's the list of films:

12 Monkeys
Bad Lieutenant
Beauty and the Beast
Before Sunrise
Being John Malkovich
Boogie Nights
Bottle Rocket
Boys Don't Cry
Buffalo ‘66
But I'm a Cheerleader
Clerks
Clueless

The Big Lebowski
The Book of Life
The Grifters
The Matrix
The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Sixth Sense
The Straight Story
The Thin Red Line
Tommy Boy
Toy Story
Trust
Unforgiven

Alright, I think that's it.  Let me know if you have questions.

If the final few participants can get their ballots in by 8pm Eastern tonight, that would be swell, just swell.

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

I guess it'd be good to put a deadline on this.  Let's say Sunday night, 8pm Eastern.

I was just bluffing here.  The real deadline for getting any late ballots in is the end of the first round.
