    Default Best Movie Scene Tournament: Round 2 - Group 32 of 32 (Tiebreaker)

    For the tiebreaker poll, please choose one to move on to the next round.

    IMPORTANT! Please do not simply vote on name recognition (or lack thereof) alone. Please do watch each nomination and then make your choice. Even if you think you know a movie scene well, it's still worth watching for a refresher.

    Please remember that his tournament is for Best Scene, not Best Movie.
    It's important to therefore judge each nomination on its individual merits and NOT by the entire movie.


    The poll will run for four days. Discussion is greatly encouraged!

    The nominees are:


    Coin Toss scene - No Country For Old Men (2007)



    The Pub scene - Inglourious Basterds (2009)

    Damn. Both of these scenes are soaked in tension. I have distinct memories of watching these both in theaters and anxiously expecting something violent to happen at any second.

    I'm giving the slight edge to the IG scene here. Slight...

    If it was the opening scene from Basterds, yes.

    No, it's the scene where Fassbender's character has his cover blown.

    Right, I meant if it was the opening scene then I'd give it an edge. Otherwise, it's gotta be the coin toss.

    A hard choice, but in the end I had to choose the pub scene from Inglorious Basterds - It's just too awesome!

    Even though Inglorious Basterds would go through on stated votes, I think using the "stated votes" rule would be unfair at this point, as I did not stipulate it from the start. That will be a rule to consider for Round 3...

    In the meantime, this tiebreaker will be decided by the first member (that did not vote in this poll) who posts their preference on this thread....
