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

they sure are
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

For anyone voting the last option, I should probably explain what this is all about.  Basically, we compiled a list of 200 of the best American films of the 90s, and then we began matching up films to face off against each other.  Pairs are assigned to bracket participants at random, they watch or (re)watch the two films, pick one of the films to advance to the next round, and post a verdict reviewing the films and explaining their decision.  It's all pretty great, I think.  You can see the current results here, along with links to all the individual verdicts.

If you're interested and would like to join in once round two begins, just let me know.  :)

I like that there is no "I haven't watched either of my movies and I don't plan on it" option.
