    Default The Great Movie Tournament - Nominations Thread: 1960s

    And here we go!

    This is the nominations thread for the sixth portion of The Great Movie Tournament (sixth of ten) where we'll nominate and second our favorite movies for the decade of the 1960s (from 1960 to 1969). 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, 1960 and December 31, 1969 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 two 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 192 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 6 titles - top 4 move on
    • Round 2: 32 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 3: 16 groups of 4 titles - top 2 move on
    • Round 4: 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!

    I nominate Hara-Kiri (1962)

    Watch clip:



    The trailer doesn't do it justice. Some incredible drama here.

    Goddammit, I put the link in the spoiler tags (no "s") and nothing shows up.

    --Ok, I went back to a previous tournament and ported over the template. I must say that the instructions do NOT produce this type of link when I try to do it. But I've got the template again, so no worries.

    I just looked over the instructions and everything looks fine, strange. What wasn't working for you?

    I'll nominate one of the most beautiful and poignant films of all time, and probably a Top 5 all-time film for me. I was stunned when I first saw it in 1999 in a very poor quality Criterion DVD, and it looks amazing in HD.

    Andrei Rublev (1966)
    Andrei Tarkovsky

    I just looked over the instructions and everything looks fine, strange. What wasn't working for you?
    Step 1: I grab the URL from the You Tube address bar. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRp1tUHpWNs

    Step 2: I delete the "s"

    Step 3: I open the indicated blue-style spoiler tags. This generates a pop-up that asks me to enter the URL.

    Step 4: Enter the URL (no "s") from Steps 1 and 2 as indicated by the pop-up. Click "ok."

    Step 5: Weep at my desk, as nothing at all shows up in the post.




    (I can see the spoiler code in my preview, and it doesn't look anything like the code that actually works, which I ported over from a previous thread)
