It definitely seems like that is the most popular choice. We could do one more run off between that and filmonthebrain if people want, just so we have it down to a final two. What do you think?

Fine with me.

Although even if you give filmonthebrain the other four votes it would only be winning 9-8 and I doubt it would get 4/4. So I think cinemaroundtable is the one.

Final poll is up, lets run it for a good while. Maybe 5-7 days. See how many votes we can get.

No, I think it is too. I'd like to see some of these filmonthebrain supporters speak up for why it is better.

I like both and could have voted for brain, but did vote for table... I would say that superior is in the eye of the beholder.

I think the 'superior' qualities of filmonthebrain is that its more generic (in a good way), probably easier to remember, and a little quirky (don't act like none of us are quirky).

The superior qualities of cinemaroundtable is that it suggests community involvement and gives us a specific theme we could use (like RT's tomatometer/fresh ratings/etc).

It's just a difference of opinion, but I could do both. Let's compromise and call it filmroundbrain.com. Smile

I voted for filmonthebrain. To me it suggests "all I think about is movies, all I want to talk about is movies". I also hope it suggests "intelligent, reasonable and respectful" discussion of films. I have been voting for this every time bar once (I think). I do also like the roundtable option, just not quite as much.

I went with filmonthebrain.com for pretty much those reasons, mainly because it is very easy to remember, and it just seems to fit what most of us on here are like. Roundtable just didn't sit well with me. FOTB was not always my first choice in previous polls, but it was always one of my top 3.

Plus, FotB sounds like a film website (or a mehtacular summer blockbuster) and CRT sounds like a classic rock band.

imo, Film On The Brain is a neat title--but i don't think it describes much about the site (or, at least, not accurately).. personally, it makes me think of something more along the lines of OverThinkingIt.com.. i dig that site, but it's a far cry from what we're envisioning here..

I think Cinema Round Table is more thematically fitting for us...

I also agree, Filmonthebrain is boring. Cinemaroundtable is more iconic, like worstpreviews or comingsoon etc.

I hate how misleading the site name Worst Previews is. It sounds like a fan site devoted to bad movies instead of a national site devoted to all movies.

I also realized something about why filmonthebrain works: it continues the evolution of the site by having a name that begins with the letter "f" (Fantasy Moguls, The Fantaverse Resurrected, Film On The Brain).

Sorry, and I realize I'm in the minority here, but "filmonthebrain" sounds like the thin gelatinous layer Hannibal Lecter scraped off before sawing into Ray Liotta's noodle and frying it up with some cooking sherry and garlic.

Mmm. Brains.

I like that. Was Undeadmonkey the inspiration for that? Unfortunately it doesn't relate to movies. Oh well.

I am not changing my vote but maybe we should go with CRT and here's why. Most of us who have spoken up in favour of FOTB (myself included) have said that CRT is good but we like FOTB better. The CRT supporters seem to dislike FOTB, so at least everyone likes CRT even if it isn't our first choice. Although considering the reasons for the support of CRT would that then be a case of irony?
