greatest science fiction film tournament
Our twelfth round of voting is here. This marks the midpoint of round one. Tentative titles from round 11 that can be voted on again in week 24 include Kin-Dza-Dza! (1986) and Monkey Business (1952). Newly eliminated titles are Escape from L.A. (1996) and Species (1995).
Voting on weeks 1-10 is now closed, and voting on week 11 will close late Thursday. The initial eliminations are in, as are the tentative titles. We are using Bayesian statistics, meaning a movie needs to receive a minimum number of votes to qualify, so the films that receive fewer votes than that are considered “tentative” titles. Below you will find two lists. One list is of the 20 titles which have been outvoted by other titles from the first ten weeks, and the other is of the films that did not receive enough votes to qualify. In week 24, which ends round one, there will be the regular list of 16 titles, as well as a list of the 2012 releases and a list of the tentative titles in case anyone watches them in the interim.
Our eleventh round of voting is here.
Our tenth round of voting is here.
Our ninth round of voting is here. As you probably know, the 24 week first round is designed to winnow 384 options down to 128 contenders for tournament style eliminations. We are days away from having clear eliminations from the tournament. Once we reach that stage, should we announce those eliminations here, or keep those results quiet until round two begins in week 25?
