Welcome Passha!
Thanks for the thread and the link.

You may not have seen it but i already made a thread about this tournament early this morning; i will let you the honor of having your own thread since you took the time to create it. Take it as a encouragement to post more smile
If Fermi or Charley are listening it would be nice to paste the messages of the other thread into this one.

Results as we speak :

7. Terminator Vs. 8. Serenity
Terminator 40.75% (2,104 votes)

Serenity 59.25% (3,059 votes)

Total Votes: 5,163

It's looking good for Serenity; in last round Terminator got 4 755 votes whereas Serenity got 4 807 so it should not be easy but still possible to win. The polls will be open from 11 AM PST to 11 PM PST.

You're welcome!
Next round will be much tougher because the other competitors had more than 6 000 votes on the other rounds. Indeed Terminator and Serenity are called underdogs by io9's writer.

I posted a thread at firefly.net btw; more help is needed.

Yes, choice between Terminator and Serenity was the hardest one for me. Now I hope many of those who voted for Terminator will vote for Serenity.

On the first part of The Final Four, Star Wars was pitted againts its sequel Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and the yougster beat the original :

1. Star Wars Vs. 2. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Poll Closed)
Star Wars 24.4% (1,780 votes)
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 75.6% (5,514 votes)

Total Votes: 7,294

The second part of The Final Four is scheduled for tonight and Firefly is pitted against Blade Runner; these two films are very much appreciated by io9's members (just like Star Wars) so that the Final Four is not a surprise.

I like the love/hate link io9's readers have with Summer Glau, especially when polls are involved (because River Tam was unbeatable in io9'sprevious polls and it has become an inside joke to invoke River Tam's power since then).

I hated Blade Runner, most overrated movie of all time.

It is more effective than Ambien, I tried to watch it 3 times and fell asleep every time.

Serenity and Firefly are both 1000x better than Blade Runner.

If Blade Runner (deservedly) puts a stake in Serenity, it'll make up for the RiverTamapolooza poll of yore. A little.

This is the type of comment i was refering to in my previous message (though the use of typical US expressions makes it difficult to translate for me)
