    I'm glad you mentioned Jupiter Ascending, especially after my mention of Cloud Atlas. Both films are directed by the Wachowskis and both were films that really divided people. In my opinion, Cloud Atlas is a superior film. What were your thoughts on that one?

    I like both actually, but prefer JA. I like different and imaginative movies when filmmakers just go for it, I respect that.

    I wanted to like JA. I really did. But I think my issue was it was how quickly Mila Kunis just accepted what was happening around her and to her character. I just could not buy that part. At least in The Matrix, Neo just did not accept what was happening to him and it took him a while to come to grips with what was happening and what his role was. At least that's my thought. I wanted to like JA. But I just could not get past that. There might have been other things, but I only saw it in the theater one time and that was it.

    Thank you to everyone for another great job with the nominations, I believe, as usual, we have a very eclectic mix of great movies, and I am very eager to get voting!

    I have the first Round 1 polls opening on Monday, July 27, so we have three weeks at our disposal to go over the list and see any movies we might want to catch up on that we haven't seen or watched a while ago and want a refresher.

    The overview thread will be updated with the schedule soon. I'll also post the usual nomination stats here shortly, and Still Servant has a tough job ahead of him getting us the always fascinating actors breakdown

    This is the part where I start thinking of all the films that I totally left off my very comprehensive list. Shame on me for totally forgetting about Mud.

    That being said, I think we did a very good job of filling this field. There are quite a few smaller films that I really hope people try to watch before the tournament starts.

    And your fear of all the MCU movies making it didn't come to pass We did get a healthy helping of them, but definitely not all.
