Total Recall - Like it a lot, The Crow not so much
Three Kings - Love it, Austin Powers to me is just not funny
Princess Mononoke - First Contact is fine, this is better
Happy Gilmore - Basically Bob Barker in this trumps anything in Crimson Tide
Babe - I thought Babe was great, I thought In the Line of Fire was pretty good but I've never wanted to see it again
The Player - I love The Player, I will acknowlege that Naked is a good movie, but I hate it
The Green Mile - Both are just ok, but I think the Green Mile for me is a little better
Apollo 13 - These are both pretty good, but I like Apollo 13 a little more.
Night on Earth - Just OK, but I hate Blair Witch

Jurassic Park will debut in the next round, it has a bye for the opening round. It has the #13 seed out of 173 movies;)

Total Recall is beating The Crow? I figured it would be the other way around.

Very strange pairings. How do you compare Three Kings with Austin Powers? How do you compare Crimson Tide with Happy Gilmore???

Who cares? Looking forward to future 90's rounds.

Yeah, these were tough ones to compare. I really had to think about which of the two movies I'd like to see more. Most of the opening round matchups are usually slam dunks, so it is kinda good to see a few that take some thought.



We still have 3 very close matchups, so keep on voting!!

The Big Lebowski is the #12 overall seed so it has to await the winner of:
