1990s US Bracket, Round 5: Ghost Dog vs. Election

Only one film put me to sleep, and it wasn't Ghost Dog.  I should probably give Dead Man another shot.

Not even the music kept you awake?

Well it wasn't necessarily entirely the film's fault, it was a class screening and those always put me to sleep.  I even fell asleep in the middle of Passion of the Christ, only to wake up to that weird demon baby thing.

I guess it had an easier playoff schedule than...say...I don't know...Dead Man;)

Yeah, Dead Man is one of many films better than Ghost Dog that have been eliminated.  But that way madness lies.

There.

I did it.

I caught up with 224 pages of this thread.  Ferris dazed at moment.  I think I lost track towards the end.  Is there like a visual of the bracket as it stands?  Is someone keeping like a powerpoint slide or something?

Umm, one question before I finally start working on the taxes.  So movies like Fargo and American Beauty were cast aside without any fanfare but y'all go four pages on Election?  I guess I need to see Election

Crap but now I know going in she's gonna' fall off that garbage can.

This should make things a lot more clear.
The thing about Fargo and AB, among others, is that they were kocked out at an earlier stage when a verdict was still produced by a single person, as opposed to the three or five people verdicts we use for the later rounds.
