You missed the decision to do a 3rd-place match after the final?
Or don't you wanna play anymore?

Why not? klaus78 already made his pick for USA, so if you know what you'll pick for Italy, I might as well start the final tomorrow.

If the majority wants another match, I'll play along. I don't get why there's the same deadline for both 3rdplace match and the finals. Are the matches to be held at the same time?

With the regular overlap of half a week, so March the 5th (it's in the OP).

Edit: Scratch that. Both films have already been revealed, I see. Had hoped for something a little bit more off-beat but decent noms all the same.

Looks like a good final, I really liked Lonesome but it has room to be beaten. Interested in the Italian film which I've been meaning to watch for some time.

Personally I am not a fan of match between semifinal losers unless its a Olympic competition. But since we have consensus , I'll pick one.

Actually it seems to be quite the opposite: Lonesome is at 613 yet no sign at all of the Italian film. I didn't expect another silent and it seems to be a tough competitor. We'll see how many of its non-regular (in the World Cup) fans turn up.

Wow, it took a long time, but this final is actually the first time in the whole WC history where I have seen both films before.
Both good films and I might still rewatch them to decide on my winner.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

So, will you be starting a new finals thread, or do we post in this one? Surprisingly enough, I've seen both films as well.

That could be debated. I belive one of them (at least) was an atheist.
