    Well seeing how the VG showdown is going on in General, I think it'd be best to have a movie one going on in here. It's been done in the past a few times with successful results.

    Nominate 2 characters from each category below. You can be flexible, for instance if you really like sci-fi and a character is from a movie that is sci-fi AND horror, you can place that person into horror and add others into the sci-fi category. You don't have to fill out every category, do as much or as little as you want.

    Also... PLEASE NAME THE MOVIE THE CHARACTER IS FROM.

    Once a get a large enough amount of characters we'll begin :D

    Good stuff guys.

    Bretimus, "IT" counts. But John McClane was already nominated.

    If you guys are going to add more people, just make it in a new post instead of editing your nominations. This is going to be a big list and chances are I won't be able to tell who you added and who's on the list already.

    I absolutely love that movie and it contains my favorite knock knock joke of all time.

    "Knock knock."
    "Who's there?"
    "Go fuck yourself."

    Tom Hanks everybody, he'll be here all week.

    WickedLiquid, Darth Vader has already been nominated

    Bretimus, Tyler Durden has already been nominated

    Urban, Anton Chigurh was nominated before you nominated him, I just caught it now

    HK-47, I don't have to change the characters into different categories since they're all going to be in the showdown. The catagories are there so that we get a wide variety of different people. I added your new ones but your nominations are still in their original categories, lol.

    Totally works for me.

    Ooooh! Now I get it! Originally thought that each category only had matches with others in that category. Man, this works even better than I thought!
