80s bracket consensus voting
« on: June 18, 2009, 03:30:33 AM »
skjerva asked that people post their individual choices by June 19th, but hopefully we can get him to extend that deadline by a few days, so we can add a few more titles to the base list. This is where you vote for films you really want to see in the bracket. Discretion is advised, don't go voting for everything you've seen just because you can. You don't have to justify your choices though, if you want to vote for 100 titles and Over the Top is amongst them, that's your prerogative. Any film with five votes or more gets added to the base list (that number is up for debate). You can find the preliminary base list here and the full list of films here.

If you have any doubts, please let me know. If not, get posting.

The people mentioned in the post above can still vote for other films, of course. I'll keep a running tally on the first post.

Some of these (e.g. Vernon, Florida; Streetwise; Eyes on the Prize are already on skjerva's expanded list. So we don't really need to vote on those, right?
