Movie-Related Update

Alright, guys. Thanks to your help, I've got my brackets set up for an NCAA-style tournament of the most quotable movies.

The way this works is: you can score points for clever quotes, memorable quotes, and, most importantly, quotes applicable in real-life situations. Btw: quotes are not considered "memorable" based on how often people quote them — they are considered "memorable" based on how likely you are to spout them immediately when trying to think of quotes from that movie. Points are given and deducted for how widely-known the movie actually is, however (which is why Scott Pilgrim is a 14-seed). Points will ALSO be deducted based on how tired a quote is — if you groan when you hear someone say it, that's not a good sign (this is why Forrest Gump is nowhere even close to this list). Here are the brackets, and I'll get started on this tomorrow. There WILL, by the way, be upsets.
