What the hell is with voting 16 hours early? Shocker. ;)
I didn't vote early. The deadline is late. Usually the deadline is either Sunday or Wednesday.

I suggest extending the deadline seeing as so many here seem to be late voting due to confusion as regards the current deadline.

1. Pool of London 8/10
2. Chiyari Fuji 8/10

Both start off a bit mundane but get better and more complex as they progress. Both also have strong endings. They're also surprisingly similar thematically, exploring the injustices of daily life in an impactful but still kind of light and distant way. The Pool of London takes the perspective of someone suffering injustice, rather than a priviledged person having their eyes opened, and its modern(ish) setting makes it a bit more relevant, and when the two are this close that's a tiebreaker for me.

A very close match for me. Up until the last 15 minutes of Chiyari Fuji, Pool of London was sitting comfortably at the top spot.

I think we have our first official tie in the World Cup, initiating the 3-day voting extension?

Yes, deadline over. 3-day extension starts immediately so the new deadline is the end of the 24th. I'll put a new countdown in the OP.

This tie has as much tension as either movie. I can't wait for the movie version of this match-up: "A Bloody Spear in London," a movie about an internet message board with Earl Cameron (still alive!) as Funky and Leslie Phillips (likewise!) as Monty.

Unless funky votes I won't vote - we have us a gentleman's agreement here. Also, it's great noting that so many forum users enjoy both choices. Anyway, let the fates decide the outcome of this match.

Another 3 day extension? I don't remember ever discussing this, because we never had a tie before.

We could also do a short match of shorts.

Let's hope it will be decided.

there is always someone missing the deadline but a manager not voting assuming wrongly that competition is not voting, this is quite something

The previous tie match thread was fun to read (It has 5 pages for just 29 votes. Those were the days!!). Like here, many were wondering what could happen after the tie aet. And Zhang had came up with a solution :D

Damn, you're naughty Joachim. And shame on funky for breaking our agreement.
SpoilerShow
When I checked last evening, funky had yet to vote. Today work kept me busy so I forgot to check in here until well after the deadline.
Seeing as funky forces my hand I guess I have to submit my vote then:

1. Chiyari Fuji
2. Pool of London

And why don't you guys rejoice in the fact that more forum users now will get the chance to watch these great films?
