    I'm going off on a tangent here...
    but, I'm wondering why a fella with a quote from The Outlaw Josey Wales in his sig didnt nominate a scene from it?

    I believe I tried early on, but it didn't take, sadly. Heck, there were a bunch of, Eastwood westerns that should have been included. New generation I suppose, which is cool, I guess.

    Heathens prevented you from nominating that scene?

    Just like "There are other worlds than these", There are other opinions than mine. Should these scenes be included in my mind? Yes, but others feel that "Ssupira" and other films are more important. I must bow down to their popular opinion except, in a gun fight!!! lol lol lol

    Westerns are out of fashion, for certain. Maybe it is a generation-related thing.
    Hollywood seems to have lost interest, too.
    The last good Western I saw was Tombstone.
    Loved it!

    There's no way you tried or I would have seconded it. Unless I missed it, which I don't think I did because I read through every post.

    The poster from that film is literally hanging over my bed as I type this.

    Is there still time to submit? If so I'll submit The Leaning scene from Night of the Hunter. I know it's probably going to get zero votes but it's one of my personal favorites.

    It's okay, you are still in time.

    Do you have a video clip to go with your nomination?

    I really fear this might be a wasted nomination, but it is one of my all-time favorite scenes. It's stuck with me since the moment I first saw it. It is superbly executed. I love the creative use of lighting, and how creepy it makes the scene. And just a little backstory for those that have not seen the film is that Robert Mitchum (who we see singing outside the house) has been pursuing these two young children who are hiding out in the house.

    With that in mind, I'm adding something a little extra to the tournament in order to relieve the inevitable frustration people experience when the nominating process has finished, and also to add a bit of spice to proceedings!

    I'm going to allow each member who has participated in the tournament so far, to nominate ANY ONE movie scene (either a brand new scene or one that was previously nominated but failed to gain a second) to be included as a "Wild Card" entry.

    Members have from now until Monday 26th June 2017 at 16:00hrs EST to nominate their "Wild Card" entry.

    The nominated Wild Cards will then face off against each other in a separate poll, with only one entry emerging victorious. The winning "Wild Card" entry will then be matched up in a single 1 on 1 playoff against the movie scene with the lowest vote percentage emerging from Round 1, with the winning scene then advancing with the others to Round 2.

    Remember, you can only nominate ONE movie scene for this!

    Let the "Wild Card" nominations begin!!!!
    This is a Final call for members to nominate a "Wild Card" entry. There is now only 20 minutes left before the nomination window closes!!

    The nomination window for "Wild Card" entries is now closed. There are a total of eight official "Wild Card" movie scenes entered. These will face off against each other in a poll that I will be posting tomorrow evening.

    Default An Important Announcement regarding the Best Movie Scene Tournament

    It has come to my attention that a fellow member's movie scene that was previously seconded by myself on 24th May, had not been added to the Google sheet and subsequently, not included in the 256 official entries that make up Round 1.

    This is solely my mistake and I accept full responsibility for the oversight. The movie scene in question is the "Gearing up" scene from Commando (1985).

    Short but sweet.
    SECONDED!!!!
    Having been duly and correctly seconded during the nominating process, it is only fair that this scene is included in the tournament. However, mathematically this poses a few problems as we cannot start Round 2 with 193 entries, nor can I realistically start deleting entries and re-posting polls.

    In consultation with the member affected by my balls up, it has been agreed that there will now be a 3 step process for the "Wild Card" entries to earn a place in Round 2, in order for the Commando scene to be included.

    Originally, the winning "Wild Card" entry from the current poll was to be directly matched up against the movie scene with the lowest vote percentage emerging from Round 1, with the winning scene then advancing with the others to Round 2.

    Instead, the winning "Wild Card" entry will now be matched up against the Commando scene in a single 1 on 1 playoff, with the winner of that poll facing off against the movie scene with the lowest vote percentage emerging from Round 1. The winner of that final poll will then proceed with the others to Round 2.

    Yeah, well it occurred to me that there is likely a shit load of worthy scenes we forgot. Just watching scheduled cable programming the last week or so it occurred to me that this was the case.
