    Damm! Another one I forgot! Second!

    Stripes (Surprised it's not nominated)
    Adventures in Babysitting
    The Pope of Greenwich Village
    Project X
    The Natural (clearly not many baseball fans here)
    The Money Pit
    Tango and Cash
    Silkwood
    The Accused
    Fort Apache the Bronx
    Major League (see above)
    Casualties of War
    Three Fugitives
    History of the World Part I (Mel Brooks!!)
    Throw Momma From the Train
    The Delta Force
    Over the Top
    Salvador
    The Dream Team
    The Boy Who Could Fly
    Sad that there is so much schlock in the contest, while some truly amazing films go unnoticed. I too have Silkwood, The Accused, and Salvador on my list. While there is still time I will shill for a few as well...

    Witness
    The Year of Living Dangerously
    The Stuntman
    Cutter's Way
    Fabulous Baker Boys
    A Room With a View
    Breaker Morant
    I can't believe I left Witness off my list! There is a lot of schlock, but that's what a lot of the '80s were. I myself grew up in the '80s, so before I was watching films like Salvador, it was a constant stream of schlock. I pretty much just mainlined that shit.

    Omg, yes! I can't believe I forgot this one. Thank you for nominating it. There's probably so many others that I'm forgetting and will remember after the nominations end.

    Will do! Whatever happened to Peter Weir? I feel like he hasn't directed a film in a decade.

    I'm done with nominations unless I think of something more, I think this is my best tournament yet in terms of nominations getting seconded. I think I've gotten 17 in, with only No Holds Barred, The Quiet Earth, and Ragtime left... and No Holds Barred was a joke nomination.

    My last act for the nominations will be seconding Manhunter
