    And as far as catching up and watching the nominations, again as a PSA please make use of JustWatch.com and check whether you can find a movie you're unfamiliar with on streaming. It's not always 100% accurate sadly (for instance it doesn't list Return of the Jedi as available on Disney+ but does list it for Empire, weird). And also do also check the free ad-supported streaming services like Crackle, Tubi, or Vudu, which it also doesn't catch usually.

    For everyone's convenience I took our list and linked each movie to its Letterboxd page. In addition to seeing the information about the film plus ratings and reviews by critics and fellow film peeps, the sidebar also links you to JustWatch, so this should be a nice way for anybody looking to catch up before voting (click to JW logo to be taken there, the sidebar doesn't list every available source). I've also sorted all the movies alphabetically:

    I'm far from a film buff to begin with and I don't watch foreign films at all so unless it had a pretty wide release in the US, it's probably never been on my radar.

    Just looking at my list, here's a couple that I've never heard of:

    Grave of the Fireflies
    Vagabond
    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Santa Sangre
    Au Revoir les Enfants
    Koyaanisqatsi
    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    There are also quite a few big Hollywood movies that I've definitely heard of but just never got around to watching.
    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?

    You've never heard of movies like Grave of the Fireflies or Kiki's Delivery Service? How? How is that possible? I am completely shocked! What about Studio Ghibli in general? While it is a Japanese animation studio, their output was a huge cultural touchstone, especially in the 1990s and 2000s when their US rights were held by Disney.

    But that's what so great about these tournaments. We strive to nominate what we feel are the best movies given the criteria and that allows others to discover gems they didn't know about before!

    Studio Ghibli sounds familiar and looking at their Wiki page I have heard of Spirited Away. Other than that I know almost nothing about Japanese/anime style movies other than what my kids have talked about.

    They are very, very into anime. They even dress up in cosplay and go to conventions all the time.
    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?

    Their movies are not just anime, they’re pure art. I would highly recommend checking them out! So imaginative and beautiful.

    Just looking at my list, here's a couple that I've never heard of:

    Grave of the Fireflies
    Vagabond
    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Santa Sangre
    Au Revoir les Enfants
    Koyaanisqatsi
    Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

    There are also quite a few big Hollywood movies that I've definitely heard of but just never got around to watching.
    Probably never heard of Santa Sangre because it got an NC-17 rating but it was released in the US and is in English. That director's biggest claim to fame is arguably El Topo which became a midnight movie for a while. I love Jodorowsky. His films are definitely not your every day fare.

    Yes, I find making lists is helpful. Also I’m very OCD so it’s just a thing I do for relaxation. Letterboxd is great for that kinda thing!

    Perhaps a chat for another time and a different thread: why are all animated Japanese movies considered anime? Grave of the Fireflies and especially Nausicaa aren't movies I'd consider anime at all. They're just Japanese animated movies (or cartoons, whatever).

    I mentioned Nausicaa because it looks more European than Japanese. I'm referring specifically to Jean "Moebius" Giraud and his influence on Nausicaa. I discovered Moebius before Studio Ghibli so when Nausicaa on her flier make their first appearance I had a Wait a minute moment. Check it out, Miyazaki talks about Moebius's influence on Nausicaa:

    There's also a video of Miyazaki and Giraud having a conversation about this on YouTube.

    "The word anime is the Japanese term for animation, which means all forms of animated media..."

    But that's what so great about these tournaments. We strive to nominate what we feel are the best movies given the criteria and that allows others to discover gems they didn't know about before!
    I too have never heard of any of the movies listed by Iwritecode, nor have I heard Studio Ghibli (not into Anime).

    I have about 44 or so I have never heard of (maybe another half dozen, that just vaguely rang a bell). Think I have only seen in the upper 90's of these, but there is probably another 10-20 that I know I have seen parts of, but cant remember if I saw the whole movie.

    I think a lot of my votes will be based on vague recollections of how I felt about the movie as I have forgotten so much about these movies.

    The tournament takes time, so there is plenty of opportunity to revisit a movie that you maybe have only seen back in the '80s or '90s. The last polls of Round 1 won't be posted until February 7.

    I suck. We suck. I feel like an idiot for not having this film on my list. I don't think I even saw anyone mention it either but it just dawned on me that The Color of Money wasn't nominated.

    It's arguably Scorsese's worst film of the 80s (lowest rated on IMDB) and not as good as Rossen's The Hustler, just my opinion.

    What kills me is that with a quick go through I see about 21 films that are pretty much "schlock." I shouldn't be able to see 10% "schlock." I guess that one man's "schlock" is another mans art.
