    Default Best Movie Scene Tournament: Overall Event Overview

    So here it is everyone, the long awaited Best Movie Scene Tournament!

    It may have taken us over 3 months to finalise the nominations, but with so many excellent movie scenes having been chosen, I'm sure the tournament will have been worth the wait!

    Here's the structure:

    Round 1: 32 groups of 8 movie scenes - top 6 move on
    Round 2: 32 groups of 6 movie scenes - top 4 move on
    Round 3: 32 groups of 4 movie scenes - top 2 move on
    Round 4: 16 groups of 4 movie scenes - top 2 move on
    Round 5: 16 groups of 2 movie scenes - top 1 moves on
    Octofinals: 8 groups of 2 movie scenes - top 1 moves on
    Quarterfinals: 4 groups of 2 movie scenes - top 1 moves on
    Semifinals: 2 groups of 2 movie scenes - top 1 moves on
    Final: 1 group of 2 movie scenes - top 1 is the winner

    Note: each poll will be open for 7 days and any tiebreaker polls will be open for 4 days.

    And here we go!

    With the final "Wild Card" entry poll now underway, I can confirm that Round 2 will officially start on Monday 10th July 2017.

    For housekeeping purposes, the threads from Round 1 will be moved to a newly created sub-forum within the Past Tournaments area. Forum members will still be able to post comments when the threads are in that section.

    Default Round 2

    Round 2 of the Best Movie Scene Tournament will start shortly. Please be aware, that the movie scenes in Round 2 have been ranked according to their percentage received in the preceding round.

    The groups have been seeded World Cup-style, from top to bottom, across 32 groups (in other words, from #1 to #32 seeded as first in groups 1 through 32, then #33 to #64, and so on).

    So fasten your seatbelts, this shit is gonna ROCK!!!!

    Default Round 3

    Round 3 will start shortly. Movie scenes in Round 3 have been ranked according to their cumulative percentage received in the preceding two rounds, and the groups seeded World Cup-style, from top to bottom, across 32 groups of 4 scenes.

    Please note that due to the high number of Tiebreaker polls in Round 2, and the risk of encountering another stalemate scenario whereupon a tiebreaker poll ends in a tie - I am officially introducing the "stated votes" rule for tiebreakers from this point on. For a "stated vote" to count during a tiebreaker, the post should clearly annotate a clear preference for one movie scene over the other.

    There are 128 movie scenes left in the tournament. By the end of Round 3, there will be only 64 movie scenes remaining - so expect some difficult choices ahead....

    Let the mayhem begin!!!!

    He's busy with stuff regarding his book, but he's on Facebook all the time, so I'm not sure what's up. Everytime I try to ask him about DT.org he ignores me. It's odd.

    The weekend is never a good time to start these things. Secondly, I am right in the middle of a house move.

    Can't wait for the next round! I can already tell I'm going to have an anxiety attack choosing between some of these.

    Default Round 4

    Round 4 will start shortly. As before, the movie scenes in Round 4 have been ranked according to their cumulative percentage received in the preceding three rounds, and the groups seeded World Cup-style, from top to bottom, across 16 groups of 4 scenes.

    There are now only 64 movie scenes left in the tournament. By the end of this round, there will be only 32 movie scenes remaining...

    If you thought some of the choices in Round 3 were tough, you've seen nothing yet! Round 4 is about to go through the gears so buckle up - this shit is gonna be WILD!!!!

    Let the madness begin!!!!

    One great scene that I just realized we completely missed was the bunker scene from Downfall. I know it's been memed to hell, but on its own it's a great scene. I meant to nominate it but forgot and just now remembered it...

    Just voted in all the round four brackets. That was fun! Hey, was the "We have to dock" scene from Interstellar ever nominated?
