I have decided to create a tournament, to find out what the members of Westlezone Forums think is the best movie ever made. It will consist of 256 movies, that the forum considers to be culturally significant and iconic. Kind of like the American Film Institute, accept with movies that people have actually seen. There will be four brackets of 64 films; The 1970's, the 1980's, the 1990's, and the 2000's. It pained me to not include the 1960's and earlier, but the way I saw it was that those types of films would have hardly stood a chance anyway, seeing as more than half the forum probably haven't even seen 64 films from the 30's-60's combined, let alone would vote for them. Plus, it makes sense to make the 70's as the cut-off point, as that decade is considered by many to be the start of a new era in filmaking. Anyways, I will be accepting nominations from all forum members, with the only requirements for the film to make the list is that I have a) heard of it, and b) agree that the film is deserving of being placed on the list. However, if a large majority start demanding that a movie be put in the tournament, I may break down and do it. However, this does not mean that I will put Snakes on a Plane in the tournament just because every Sam Jackson fan on the forum asks me to. You gotta convince me. (And in advance: no, no matter what anyone says, I will not put Snakes on a Plane in the tournament. That movie sucked hard. So, start nominating your favorite movies... now. Oh, and please tell me the year the movie came out, so I know what bracket to catalog it in.
