2000 CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

oh baby we've got ourselves a barnburner

2000 CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH SUDDEN DEATH OVERTIME (!)

@PastaThief @derek it's more that I've either not seen them or don't care about the ones I have seen from this selection, so I could go either way on most of these!

@derek I forgot how beloved O Brother is until people started talking about it this week. It really is a great movie

@derek looks like a strong chance that it takes the win.

@extinct @derek it is a fantastic movie, which makes this final really tough!

@Thomas @derek crouching tiger, to me, is highly entertaining, impressive, and extremely well done

but... idk, o brother just oozes charm like a tin of dapper dan left in the sun

Show newer

@derek alternatively: would you rather have a ghost drifting by your side or a dapper dan man?

Show newer

@derek @touk there’ll be a sudden death poll that I’m frantically refreshing for

@derek this mf better come with an asterisk in the record books
