    Come on people, Dune needs just one more vote....

    In the best TrekGirl style, I am offering green jello for the kind voter ... (the blue jello was all eaten by McKay...)
    Courses that I would most definitively take at the Stargate University:

    Ascension, Descension and the importance of flags, by Dr. Daniel Jackson
    (Thanks to Merentha for proposing it!)

    Reserving my tenth vote for now....

    Hey Ptah, are we going to have an eleventh automatic push through vote like we did last time? That would probably give us 100 movies....

    #8 Dune (giving it 3 votes) (for Lucreleia )


    I've got 2 votes left. If someone votes for The Last Starfighter (it only needs one more to get it through), I'll vote for any movie of their choice. Same goes for the original version of The Time Machine (it only needs one more to push it through). Plus you'll get the usual GW bonus.


    Ptah, Silent Running only needs one more vote. Need to delete it from the "needing 2 votes" list.
    IMO always implied.

    I think I gave Frequency it's push through vote. Do you want to change your vote, or should I change mine?

    Maybe you could vote for The Thirteenth Floor or The Arrival? *hint, hint*

    I've still got one vote left.....


    MarshAngel, the 3 movies you just voted for have already been voted through.

    Ah yes, I knew I forgot something, the 11th vote, I will make my decision when I take the Day 4 votes in, but its looking fairly likely.
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    It's a joke. My way of deflecting attention from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.

    Omg, I can't believe I forgot those! Since I've already used up all my votes, green to anybody that votes for these (specially the first one).

    This is where I get into a semantic quandary. I mean, these are undeniably great movies, and pretty clearly SF, but are they great scifi movies, or great movies that are also scifi?

    Or in other words: D'oh! What was I thinking?
    Behold the majesty that is...GERALD!
