Halfway through the voting for 2017’s Killing Time Community film of the year, and two trends have made themselves clear.  One, this is an unparalleled year for parity with 12 of the 15 nominees receiving votes already as Best Picture.  Two, this seems like a two-horse race for the top spot between Dunkirk and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  The Christopher Nolan-directed WWII  film is leading voting with 29.17% and the only film anywhere near it is the controversial Episode VIII with 20.83%.  Star Wars films have won the last two years.  Will the back half of voting see anyone else rally from the pack, or will it be Dunkirk vs. The Last Jedi to the finish line.  VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!

Just as a reminder….

Here are how the 15 finalists for the award were chosen: I took the nine films the Academy nominated for Best Picture, added the next four highest ranked by my personal list, and then added the top two box office earners not covered by either previous category.  All year you tolerate (mostly politely) my opinions, but this is your award.  This is our most important poll of the year, so VOTE!  The winner will be announced on March 2, 2018 (Friday before Oscar), and will join the hallowed ranks of these past winners:
2012: The Dark Knight Rises 
2013: Gravity
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy 
2015: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
2016: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
2017: ?????????????????????????

PS – Forward this around or direct your fellow movie lovers to the Killing Time homepage (https://justkillingti.me) to cast their votes.  We want to get as many as possible for the biggest KT Community event of the year!
