    Hey everyone! Round 3 is done and we're all set to start Round 4 on Monday! I hope there won't be any delays, as we will have two tiebreakers going until Tuesday. We'll see. Thanks as always for your great participation!

    Wow, I have seen 7 of the 8 movies to vote on today (and the 8th is on my DVR to watch later). Really surprised at the ratio. Now watch tomorrow I will by 1 for 8.

    And here are the standings after three rounds:

    Moving on:

    Eliminated:


    Interesting to note that heading into Round 4, Hitchcock has the top two spots and Leone has the next two spots in the top five, so they both account for four of the top five movies (Leone has another at 26). Also, Kubrick has two spots in the top ten, and another one at #12. Sturges has two in the top 20 and Edwards with two in the top 25.

    To be fair, Psycho was in second place after Round 2. It's not a done deal it will win. But even if it does, a) it was in out Best Horror Film final so we know it's hugely popular, and b) as I always stress, this is just as much about the rest of the list as it's about what's at number one.

    Hmmm, interesting, I have just reviewed the elite 8 entries for each of the decades we have done. Here is the breakdown of how many I have seen. In () is the number of them I own on disc.

    60's 6/8 (4)
    70's 7/8 (6)
    80's 8/8 (7)
    90's 7/8 (3)
    00's 6/8 (4)
    10's 3/8 (0)

    Really surprised that the 10's is the decade that I seemed to disagree with the pack the most. Of the 5 I haven't seen, I don't have an interest in seeing, and of the 3 I have don't care to see again.

    Prior to the 60's the only movies on disk I would have are 1) Hitchcock, 2) early godzilla, 3) Universal monster movies

    Hey everyone! The quarterfinals are now up and we're in the final stretches! Interestingly enough, the semifinals could end up with two Hitchcocks and two Kubricks. If that happens, I wonder what would be more interesting, one against the other, or first against themselves.

    And so the 1960s Final is here! Thank you to everyone who participated, nominated, voted, and commented! We have been doing this for almost three years now, can you believe it? A lot has happened in those years, not all of it good, but this tournament has always been a comfort to me, something to keep me going. So I hope everyone takes a good well-deserved break from voting once the final poll closes, and then start thinking about the 1950s, which is our next decade! It has some of the absolute best movies of all time. Can't wait!

    We are here once again, at the end. Our sixth winner has just been crowned! I'm sorry it ended up in a bit of a controversial call, but that's just how it goes sometimes, and it just means we had two wonderful picks for the best movie of the 1960s and we made the right choices along the way.

    Thank you all for your diligent voting and participation! We only have four more decades to go, starting with our next one: the 1950s. I'll post some food-for-thought links as usual a little later, giving everyone a chance to take in the winner. And also take some well-deserved rest from the polls.

    But after the holidays we'll start our nomination process, so it's a god idea to sometime soon start thinking about what films you'd like to nominate. I know there might be less of us taking part going further with these classic decades, but the 1950s had some absolute all-time classics (as did the 1940s, 1930s, and 1920s). So my hope is that a core group will continue to see this through to the end. As I had mentioned before, after we do all ten decades with the scheduled amount of picks, we will end up with a list of the best 2,000 movies of the last 100 years, from 1920 to 2019. I mean, you can't find a more comprehensive list, I bet!
