Best Christmas Movie - Boardsies Decide

Best Christmas Movie - Boardsies Decide


The rules:
  • 64 films in the competition, 32 first round matches.
  • Pick one of film and decide which you prefer. Give a reason. Films where no reason are given won't be counted. All valid votes will be thanked by me to confirm that they are accepted.
  • First to 6 votes goes through to the next round. Depending on volume of voters/contributors, this may increase exponentially by 1 vote each round.
  • One vote per player per match.
  • No take backsies on a vote once cast.
  • Anyone can vote, even if you hadn't submitted any nominations.
  • If there are votes for a considerable period, the film with the most votes will go through even if it hasn't reached 7 votes. Ties will be decided by me, if deadlocked for a considerable period.

And a final note on the mechanics:
  • Movies with the most nominations have been seeded to avoid playing off against each other in the first rounds.
  • To make up the 64 movies required for a knock-out some wildcards have been added (OP's choice), but these will always play against the highest seeded movies.
  • Match order has been randomised (ie, you won't necessarily see the Seed 1 in the first match)


Competition starting Monday, chat among yourselves if you like, but still no mention of nominations until they are closed.

Two of my favourite films. I'm gutted they're up against each other first round. But the rand is the rand. You should watch them Skunk.

I vote for While you were sleeping

I'l be honest, havent heard of the other movie but did check the trailer. Of those two, I reckon I would prefer the first one as it would remind me more of Christmas.

I think there might be a lot of movies here I will not have seen.
