You have to click twice instead of once, how more noticeable can it be?
The warning message could be more clearly visualized.

It took me a while to understand what exactly was going on. At first I just thought I miss-clicked the preview button, it wasn't until I finally noticed the message than I understood what was happening.

Also, not to be a strict dictator or anything but as stated by the rules voting stops at 12pm cet. Until now about 3 people voted after the deadline, it didn't matter for the end result yet I didn't take them up in the total tally. Otherwise it might get a problem once there is a match-up that gets altered due to a late vote.

I'm also extremely happy with the activity on this game. :thumbsup:

Ditto - this is really fun. Thinking about/talking about films most of us have seen but not recently, so they don't come up organically in conversation. Good game!

To be clear is it CET or CEST? Right now it's 21:45 CET but 22:45 CEST. This why all time zone things should be in GMT(UTC).

somehow I managed to figure out CET - don't think I ever knew what Norway time was called.

And thank you for saving Latin - I'm sure it was a grueling task, but forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit.

New Day... new votes

1 Home Alone (1990) - Zoolander (2001) 0
1 The Deer Hunter (1978) - Kung Fu Panda (2008) 0
0 Wo hu cang long (2000) - La haine (1995) 1
0 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) - Dog Day Afternoon (1975) 1

Home Alone vs. Zoolander is a matchup, but Die Hard had to go against one of the Godfathers?!? *eyes Coryn suspiciously* :P

Crouching Tiger vs. La Haine might go differently if I had rewatched Tiger more recently. The rest of the matchups weren't close for me.

I can only vote on two of these - haven't seen Kung Fu Panda or Harry Potter. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon vs. La Haine was a tough call.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Haven't seen Zoolander and HP. The Deer Hunter is overrated, but still better than a silly panda. I can't believe I watched that one. Tiger and Haine was close, but there is more beauty in Tiger, so it gets my vote.

I haven't seen Kung Fu Panda but think I would rather play Russian roulette than watch an animated film voiced by Jack Black.
Also, I'm surprised Home Alone is struggling, part of my enjoyment of it is because it's tinged in childhood nostalgia but it's such a fun film whereas Zoolander fell flat for me.

(1.5* - 3.0*) Unfunny vs silly but decent
(1.5* - 1.0*) Dreadful war drama vs even more dreadful US animation
(2.0* - 4.0*) Poor martial arts drama vs gritty hip-hop Paris
(1.0* - 1.5*) Can't remember anything from both films, I'll just let the grades to the talking.
