    Ones I would've nominated had things run on long enough:

    The 5 (I think) Harry Potter movies that weren't otherwise nominated
    The 2 (I think) Matrix movies that weren't otherwise nominated
    The Number 23
    Me, Myself & Irene
    The Polar Express
    Christmas With The Kranks (this is a scream)
    Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy (like others, I assumed there was no rush...)
    Hannibal
    Red Dragon
    Blades Of Glory
    Four Brothers
    The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe
    The Proposal
    Saw
    Bridget Jones's Diary
    Mamma Mia! (I hate musicals, I detest romance (and romantic comedies), and I don't like Abba...so naturally, I loved Mamma Mia!)
    Nanny McPhee

    Thank you. I was concerned my second-favorite film of all time would not be there. But it is, at #78. All is good.
    I think I was the one who seconded or nominated it

    Curious now what your first is.

    I remember watching this one time. My wife didn't like it but I didn't think it was that bad. Reminds me a lot of Collateral Beauty which is another Will Smith movie that my wife didn't like.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    That would be #147. That movie was a complete paradigm shift for me. Introduced me to a genre and a world I didn't even know existed.

    Yup, I can definitely see that. I'm glad I nominated it then. Anything stands out to you on the not-seconded list?

    Well, let's see...

    I pretty much detest Ki-duk Kim; however, I did enjoy Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring. I'm not sure I would have seconded it, but at least if a Ki-duk Kim film was nominated it was this one and not, say, Bad Guy or The Isle.

    I just watched Love Exposure a month or so ago. Really liked it a lot; all 4 hours of it! Def. would have seconded this one. Although Strange Circus would have been even better. Such a whacked-out film and a twist that I did NOT see coming at all.

    National Treasure was fun. I figure if I bought the DVD it's a movie worth seconding. Surprised it didn't make the cut.

    Secret Sunshine: Oh god, yes, A thousand times yes. Starring the best actress of the past 20 years. Not the best "Korean actress" but just damn the best in the world. No one else even comes close. One of the best-acted scenes I've ever watched in a movie is in this film--a scene where she doesn't even say anything. She conveys everything via an expression. Who else can convey how her world is changing in real time just via a reaction shot?

    The Skeleton Key: Pretty good horror. So much Hollywood horror is crap; nice to see "better than average" at least get a mention.

    Paprika: I didn't care for this much at all (not a fan of most anime). But I loved the soundtrack and bought the CD.

    Red Cliff: Absolutely a great film. But you have to see it fully (Part 1 and Part 2) not the condensed and edited mash-up that was shown in U.S. theaters due to run-time.

    Thus endeth my random comments on the "nominated but not seconded" list of films.

Once we go back in time to the 1980s and earlier decades, we'll probbaly need to switch back to the original limits, or even drop them to two or even one for the nominations for the very old decades of the 1940s and 1930s. It's always a process with these things...
    Perhaps you could just put a daily limit per person. Maybe 3 noms per day. In fact if you did this maybe you could remove the waiting restriction. Maybe as it getss close to the end, say only 40 spots left, you could go back to normal rules.

    Regarding the 20,30,40,50's, if it doesn't have "Dracula", "wolfman", "Frankenstein" or "mummy" in the title, I probably never seen it.
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606..

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    Carrie, Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, The Gunslinger

    Just reviewed the list and the breakdown is as follows:

    35 movies in my collection (most but not all seen in the theater)
    12 movies seen in the theater, but not in my collection
    34 movies seen on cable,rental,VOD
    4 movies think I have seen but not sure

    So only 81-85 seen.

    Of the remaining, only interested in seeing around 6 or 7.

    That seems oddly low, but that's just me. I think the vast majority of our 256 nominees are pretty much must-see or should-see. So it's a good list.

    Don't let Heather see this!

    All that means is that you'll have a great list of movies to watch!

    I'm not going to bother looking at films that I didn't get a chance to nominate or weren't nominated by others that were worthy, but I'll break down the films I've seen versus haven't.

    That's 170 films. A good chunk of the ones I haven't seen I either haven't heard of or have meant to see, but haven't gotten around to it yet. There are about 15-20 I have no interest in ever watching. There are about 10-15 I would nominate for the worst films of the 2000s tournament. I

    I didn't notice it or I'd have seconded it. Most of the seconds are films I haven't seen, haven't heard of, or ones I didn't think deserved to be nominated. I kind of stopped looking at it and tried to second as films were nominated. There was a lot of activity during the day before I would get on so I no doubt missed a fair bit that someone else seconded. There is a handful of films I liked, but didn't want to second to take up a spot I thought other films were more deserving of, like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Man on Fire, and Irreversible.

    I've got some catching up to do myself. I apologize if I hogged too many nominations. The films from this decade just brought back so many good memories and I actually felt excited in a good way for the first time in a long time. I have much fewer from the 2010s since my viewership went way down for many reasons but I watched a LOT of films in the 00s.

    I hope everyone has been warming up their voting fingers, we will be starting on Monday. Polls should be up that evening around 5 PM ET-ish.

    How exciting is this?

    Damn, I still have 38 to watch. I didn't think it was that high. I'll list them in a second and everyone tell me which ones I should try and watch immediately....
