The toys have had their batteries removed and been stored in the attic. The dead man's shoes have been taken to a charity shop. And Brazil has been conquered by a rival territory and its people turned into slave labour. Which leaves us with three.

Jaws
Psycho
Taxi Driver

I'll have a deadline for you later, but the last round is always a short one. Can anyone involved in the next round who hasn't yet sent a definite name of a film and a blurb do so by Monday night, please? That includes me.

I'd also just like to take this opportunity to say that I'm a Psycho fan, I'm sure most of us are, we're mostly people of good taste. But a vote for Psycho is also a vote for a third HoF win for TRM, and nobody wants that. Think of the greater good.

Sorry about that. I swear it wasn't deliberate - my browser keeps freezing.

Although it might have been amusing to leave Psycho as the only poll option.

Trying to rig the vote for Psycho? Do you really want a third TRM victory? He'd be insufferable.

And even more amusing to let Toy Story sneak in there at the expense of Jaws, apparently.

Don't let Gimli see.

Well, it's not THAT bad.

It was the weakest remaining film in the second round though (Aside from Dead Man's Shoes, which I've not seen so I can't hold an opinion)

Still have a backup handy, just in case it gets pulled before the round starts. What we'll have to do then is strongly advise everyone to watch your film (Dev's too, I think that's a Youtube one as well) immediately.

I was going to say I'm shocked to live in a world where Psycho is considered weaker than Toy Story, then I remembered your nom for the next round and suddenly the lack of taste made sense.

At least Toy Story doesn't have a guy come in at the end to explain how the toys come to life and why Sid's so mean in excruciating detail .

Also: fuck you .

OK, I'll have a think and let you know along with my blurb.

And just to check, this is my first nom' as a long-termer, yeah?

TRM has had three wins so far? I hate him.

Two. Although I still say Die Hard should be wiped from the record book. A summer action blockbuster is not a Christmas film.

Jaws should win because it kicks ass and it doesn't have a psychiatrist telling us why the shark eats people.

Taxi Driver should clearly win, and anyone who disagrees probably thinks they own the internet.

Jaws doesn't have the irritating overuse of a saxophone theme.

Of the three left Taxi Driver should win as it's the better film although Jaws is the easier watch.

Taxi Driver wasn't directed by Spielburger. A win for Jaws is a win for the man who gave us War Horse.

It probably is, but I thought I'd go for the lesser-known one. You know, not being a whore and all that.
