The latest round of voting is available here. I apologize for having it up a couple hours later than usual.
It all comes down to this. 390 titles have been eliminated, leaving us to vote on these final two films. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. Which will claim the title of the greatest science fiction film of all time? Last week saw no single vote wins, and no statistical upsets. Next week we reveal the winner, the complete statistics for the entire run of the contest, and start a poll for how we manage the TV tournament.
We are down to the final four. Vote in round seven here, and come back next week for the final round. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. We had two statistical upsets last week, with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) overcoming Gattaca (1997) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) overcoming The Terminator (1984).
Our rounds are now getting shorter. Vote in round six here, and come back next week for round 7. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. We hit three statistical upsets last week, with 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) defeating Ghostbusters (1984), The Empire Strikes Back (1980) defeating Moon (2009) and Blade Runner (1982) defeating Serenity (2005).
We are now finished with multipart rounds. From this point on, each week constitutes and entire round. Round five is determined here. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. Last week saw three statistical upsets, as The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951) bested Galaxy Quest (1999), Aliens (1986) beat The Incredibles (2004) and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) defeated Forbidden Planet (1956). We nearly had a fourth statistical upset too, as Moon (2009) edged out Dr. Strangelove (1964) by a single vote.
Round 4 begins here. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. Last week saw two statistical upsets, as Dr. Strangelove (1964) beat out Return of the Jedi (1983) and Pitch Black (2000) beat out Primer (2004). We are getting down to the grind here: this round is only two weeks, and rounds 5 and up are a single week each.
Round 3 ends here. The complete elimination bracket can be seen here. Last week had no statistical upsets, but that’s partly because there was a tie between When Worlds Collide (1951) and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984). The tie was broken by using the round one rankings, so although it was close to an upset, there wasn’t one. All other victories from week 35 came as a result of a minimum 6% spread in the voting.
