End of round 6! King of the Forum is... Kilgore.

Runners up:

  • NorthSky
  • rdgrimes
  • robnix
  • wmcclain
  • hitchfan & Shaded Dogfood (tie)

Complete listings can be found in the second post of this thread.

This round went one point longer than earlier ones because of the (previously unannounced) "must win by two" rule. Just like tennis.

The last point of the round was for Akira. Subsequent points will go into the next round.

Round seven has already commenced. A newly cruel and unfair scoring regime will be announced shortly.

Thanks everyone for playing!

-Bill

As I threatened to do long ago, we will have a handicapping system in round 7. Scores for this round are initialized to the negative of the player's score in round 6. This gives high-scoring players a hole to dig out of and increases the length of the round.

Call it the Harrison Bergeron rule.

I've awarded the point for Eyes Wide Shut, awaiting confirmation of others.

Play on, dudes.

Superb cinematography. British films of that era are vastly underrated.

Modest "theater": Samsung UN40ES6150, Panasonic BDT215, Yamaha RXV775. Bose 401 mains, 301 Series III surrounds, Yamaha NS-C444 center.

Kinda like giving the lowest ranked team the first draft choice. I like this!

The Deaths of Ian Stone.

Although I never saw it. The trailer looked rather stupid and high school Shakespeare production acting.

That's the one. The dark haired woman is Jaime Murray, who I best remember as one of Dexter's psycho girlfriends. The blonde is Christina Cole again.

The film itself: the setup of a man demon-haunted in parallel lives is ok, but the resolution turns into a romantic, moral little tale, less satisfying.
