    Default The Great Movie Tournament - Nominations Thread: 2000s

    And here we go!

    This is the nominations thread for the second portion of The Great Movie Tournament (second of ten) where we'll nominate and second our favorite movies for the decade of the 2000s (from 2000 to 2009). For our purposes, an eligible film must be a feature narrative film (no short films) and its first release date must be between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2009 according to IMDb (sometimes films will premiere at festivals one year but have a wide release the following year; we'll use the IMDb and Wikipedia convention of the year of initial exhibition).

    Participation is very much encouraged and extremely welcomed, but please do follow these guidelines for this nomination process (subject to adjustment):
    • You can nominate one film per post, and you can nominate another film after three other members have made their nominations.
    • You can second one film per post, and you can second another film after one other member has made their second.
    • If possible, please include a trailer and/or a scene from the film using Spoiler tags (this version and delete the s in https for YouTube links when embedding a video, making sure to use the full URL from the address bar, not the sharing link).
    • Nominations can also be optionally accompanied by year of release and director.

    Once 256 nominated films have been seconded, the tournament will begin, following the structure shown below (an overall event overview thread will be posted as usual with links to all the polls so members can easily navigate during the tournament). Each poll will be open for 7 days and any tiebreaker polls will be open for 4 days.
    • Round 1: 32 groups of 8 titles - top 6 move on
    • Round 2: 32 groups of 6 titles - top 4 move on
    • Round 3: 32 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 4: 16 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 5: 16 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Octofinals: 8 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Quarterfinals: 4 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Semifinals: 2 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Final: 1 group of 2 titles - top 1 is the winner

    This post will be updated with the list of nominated and seconded titles as they come in. You can also keep up to date with this handy Google Sheet.

    Enjoy and have fun!

    I guess I'll kick off my nominations with one of my favorite films of all time:

    Amélie (2001)
    Jean-Pierre Jeunet

    Watch trailer:


    I remember downloading a postage-stamp sized MOV file of the original French trailer back in the dial-up era in 2000 or 2001 and ripping the soundtrack from it so I could play it over and over. It was (and is) glorious!

    Ok, I'm confused: I'd thought Unbreakable had already been seconded, but now it shows it hasn't been (I may be remembering wrong).

    If someone seconded The Dark Knight before I did, could I second Unbreakable instead?

    Yes, as long as 3 other posters have nominated before you, you can proceed.
