    Default The Great Movie Tournament - Nominations Thread: 1970s

    And here we go!

    This is the nominations thread for the fifth portion of The Great Movie Tournament (fifth of ten) where we'll nominate and second our favorite movies for the decade of the 1970s (from 1970 to 1979). For our purposes, an eligible film must be a feature narrative film (no short films or documentaries) and its first release date must be between January 1, 1970 and December 31, 1979 according to IMDb (sometimes films will premiere at festivals one year but have a wide release the following year; we'll use the IMDb and Wikipedia convention of the year of initial exhibition).

    Participation is very much encouraged and extremely welcomed, but please do follow these guidelines for this nomination process (subject to adjustment):
    • You can nominate one film per post, and you can nominate another film after four other members have made their nominations.
    • You can second one film per post, and you can second another film after two other members have made their seconds.
    • If possible, please include a trailer and/or a scene from the film using Spoiler tags (this version and delete the s in https for YouTube links when embedding a video, making sure to use the full URL from the address bar, not the sharing link).
    • Nominations can also be optionally accompanied by year of release and director.

    Once 256 nominated films have been seconded, the tournament will begin, following the structure shown below (an overall event overview thread is posted with links to all the polls so members can easily navigate during the tournament). Each poll will be open for 7 days and any tiebreaker polls will be open for 4 days.
    • Round 1: 32 groups of 8 titles - top 6 move on
    • Round 2: 32 groups of 6 titles - top 4 move on
    • Round 3: 32 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 4: 16 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 5: 16 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Octofinals: 8 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Quarterfinals: 4 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Semifinals: 2 groups of 2 titles - top 1 moves on
    • Final: 1 group of 2 titles - top 1 is the winner

    This post will be updated with the list of nominated and seconded titles as they come in. You can also keep up to date with this handy Google Sheet.

    Enjoy and have fun!

    You can try using this code:

    PHP Code:
    [SPOIL="Watch trailer:"][video=youtube;XjPSGuJskxM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjPSGuJskxM[/video][/SPOIL] 
    Just update the YouTube code (in two places where it shows up) for your video in place of mine (XjPSGuJskxM)
