    Fantastic Mr. Fox is a wonderful movie and amazingly funny. It should have more votes than mine! If you haven't seen it, you should do it now.
    Wanted: Human skin edition of The Book of the Dead. Will accept PC copy.

    Well, time for me to cry as Synecdoche, New York, the greatest film of the decade and one of the greatest films ever made, doesn't pass the first round, and Shrek does.

    I am with you on this one, Mattrick. It is one of the best films ever made but I knew it wouldn't go far in this tournament.

    Signs is a great movie if you ignore the idiocy of the aliens' weakness.

    I have this on my Prime queue, just for you. I'll watch this this weekend. Shame about it getting knocked out though.

    Pan's Labyrinth is another potential tournament winner for me.

    Well this sucks, most polls I've only voted for 1 or 2 films. This one I voted for 5. And I agree, more people should check out Synecdoche, New York. And also bummed to see Fantastic Mr. Fox struggling a bit. It's such a fun witty film.

    Am I the only one not impressed by Shrek? It was all the rage in 2001 and I wasn't a fan then either. Shrug...

    Shrek is pretty lame. I thought the sequel was better, but not good enough to keep watching the next 32 movies.

    Wow, I thought Shrek was great, and much better then the sequel (each sequel was worse then the predecessor). Shrek is definitely one of my favorite animated movies. I love all the subtle adult jokes in it.
    Wanted:

    'Salem's Lot Portfolio #606..

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

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

    I have to watch Synecdoche, New York some day only because Matt won't talk to me if I don't.

    I must say though, it's a shit name for a movie. I know it's a play on real place (Schenectady), but that doesn't mean you have to name your movie after it. It's hard to say, it's hard to write and you can't Google it. I really think that's a reason the film doesn't get more attention.

    I'm holding them posters hostage until you do.
