With the Orlando issue now resolved, maybe it's time to lock this thread and concentrate all the discussion in the main bracket thread.

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

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
Crumb
Dazed & Confused
Fargo
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Fight Club
Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai
Glengarry Glen Ross
Goodfellas
Grosse Pointe Blank
Gummo
Hoop Dreams
Jerry Maguire
JFK
Julien Donkey-Boy
Kids
L.A. Confidential
L.A. Story
Last of the Mohicans
Lost Highway
Magnolia
Menace II Society
Metropolitian
Mighty Aphrodite
Miller’s Crossing
My Own Private Idaho
Paris Is Burning
Point Break
Pulp Fiction
Quiz Show
Reservoir Dogs
Rushmore
Safe
Schindler's List
Se7en
Serial Mom
Silence of the Lambs
Slacker
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
Virgin Suicides

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

Ice Storm was part of the second batch of films let into the bracket (138 of the total 200), so its seeding was already determined by the previous balloting we did (it was the 14th seed out of those 138 films).  This ballot includes only the 62 films that we started with, regardless of whether they won or lost their first round matchups.
