    Um, I'm all for inception winning (I voted for it and it's one of my favourite movies of all time) but anyone else think it's a bit suspicious how it went from being 32-29 down to 34-32 up in 20 minutes, with 5 of the votes for inception coming from people creating accounts within the last 20 minutes...

    Really? I'll investigate this when I get home. I can see exactly who votes and all their glorious ip details and I'll remove votes I'd I determine there to be foulplay.

    Names were Cedric Diggory, Hitchcock, Jack Torrance, Kubrickian and Tartan Prince to make it easier to check.

    Heath Ledger's improvisation scene where he blows up the hospital means it just beats inception for me
    Best improvised exchange ever is in Re-Animator (which is much better than both these!)

    Daniel Cain: Herbert you're insane! Now what happened here?

    Herbert West: I had to kill him!

    Daniel Cain: What? He's dead?

    Herbert West: .... Not any more.

    Good spot. Someone really opened five new accounts just to try and get Inception over The Dark Knight? Some people really do have too much time on their hands.

    It takes thirty seconds to make a new account, it's hardly time-consuming.
    Still a sad thing to do for an utterly meaningless poll.

    Shame Inception lost in the end though.

    I sgree it's not time consuming tbh since we want the site to be easy to sign up to for newbies but it's still very wrong...

    Yea, i agree it's sad.

    Luckily, this round didn't actually matter that much due to the format of both winner and runner up from the group stages progressing in a world cup style seeding where they're split up to opposite sides of the compeititon so we may well end up seeing these two meet again in the final...
