Also, sorry but pls. count my vote for Mystery Train & Popeye.

I think I have?

Ah, so a single vote gets you a place on the big list and two votes means the film gets a number next to it in parentheses? I think I'm having a particularly slow morning.

Don't know about the 80's, but I'd vote to include

Oliver & Company
Gremlins
Bettlejuice
and Pee Wee in that order

I'm not sure if you want to count sdedalus's unranked list. I'm just bringing it up because it has all these movies from my own list ::).

I know I already submitted a list, but here a top 10ish of films I haven't seen, but which I'm curious about and/or feel should probably be included for historical/canonical reasons:

Barfly
Burden of Dreams
Mississippi Burning (Ebert's best film of 1988!)
Ms. 45
Mystery Train
Ordinary People
Peggy Sue Got Married
Ragtime
Rumble Fish
Salvador
Terms of Endearment
Another Woman/Stardust Memories


Also, it would be a shame if we didn't also include Lynch's Dune, which I missed off my original list. Thank you for indulgence.

How many of these will make the bracket?  :)

Yeah, I wasn't sure if that was all movies he wants to see in the bracket or if he was just throwing out ideas. I'm sure he'll make it clear soon enough.
