    Shows how tough this group is that it is in last but still has 7 votes. A lot of the others are losing with 2 or 3. Too many good movies in this one. Although I am not sure why Good Morning, Vietnam is doing so well.

    This is closing tomorrow and we have a three-way tie for the last two spots with Say Anything, The Outsiders, and Born on the Fourth of July. And The Last Temptation of Christ just two votes back, but we may be at our limit for the number of voters...

    In case stated votes end up counting for tiebreakers, mine are: Say Anything, Last Temptation, A Christmas Story, The Outsider.
    God bless Captain David Dorn, Drew Brees, Lana Del Rey, and Donald Trump.

    That's only for tiebreaker polls, which is where we'll go if a regular poll is tied after closing.

    Wow all these ties.
