The toughest call for me was Casino/Long Goodbye - two American masters at the peak of their cinematic powers. I went with Goodbye beacause the 70's is my favorite movie decade.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #1/Group #7 Poll

All very easy choices this time out:
Gladiator (Star Trek II is Good and all but not as involving for me as Gladiator is.)
American Beauty (Vertigo Isn't one of my favorite Hitchcock films. TO say the least. AB is a great film with great music and was very powerful to me when I first saw it.)
Brazil (It would be such a shame if Shaun beats this...truly.)
Requiem for a dream (The music score alone for Requiem solidifies my vote.)
Casino (One of the most impressive films I have ever seen. My #1 Scorsese film still to this day. Plus TLG is boring.)

These were easy choices all around for me:

Gladiator
Vertigo
Shaun of the Dead
Requiem for a Dream
Casino

I don't really care for Shaun or Brazil, but I'd be more likely to rewatch Shaun.

I like being able to see the entire bracket at one time. I am hoping everyone else will get more out of the tourney with that view.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #1/Group #7 Poll

First match where I have skipped one (Requiem VS the Big Sleep). I haven't seen the Big Sleep, and while I really liked Requiem, it's pretty much the opposite of something I want to watch on an average night.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #1/Group #7 Poll

Contrary to popular belief, The Wrath of Khan isn't the best of the Star Trek movies--that would be The Undiscovered Country--but it's easily more re-watchable for me than Gladiator.

I have a confession, though. I violated my policy of only voting in a match-up where I've seen both films. I loathe American Beauty so much I voted for Vertigo entirely out of spite.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #1/Group #7 Poll

THE WRATH OF KHAN is infinitely superior to THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY for many many reasons, but to each their own.

Anyway... SHAUN OF THE DEAD is beating BRAZIL?!?! I hate you people.

That's not nearly as bad as Casino beating The Long Goodbye.
