I'm going to try to get my matchup done today so I can stop being delinquent in updating the master thread. Glad to see all this activity!

No, but I think it can happen this weekend. Life got rough there for a bit.

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

The nice thing about coming into this thing late is that I'm not running out of eligible matchups yet. I'll continue with Flowers of Shanghai v Hard Boiled.

I'll be oldkid's wingman and take Whisper of the Heart vs Days of Being Wild please.  Promise to be quicker this time...

Oops, I noticed that both Teproc and oldkid have beaten me to this.  Maybe if there's a decider.

Instead I'll do Sonatine vs Rice People.  Eventually.


see next but one message for what I'm actually doing next (sorry Pix!)

Feel free to go whichever way you prefer, but Days of Being Wild v Whisper of the Heart actually is in need of a decider (I went for Wong and and oldkid went for Ghibli).

In which case reverse!

I'll break the tie in Days of Being Wild vs Whisper of the Heart.

Can someone pick a number between 1 and 5 for me? I'm out of matchups where I haven't seen either film, so I want to leave my next one to chance so that I'm not intentionally putting myself in position to advance/eliminate back-to-back films by the same director, for example. (I sent my five numbered choices to Teproc so I won't be tempted to cheat, haha.)
