Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #2 Poll

shouldn't we maybe do the next one when the previous does officially close, so as to not clutter?

Superman II
Aliens
Fargo
Raiders of the Shaved Ark
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Yeah, I probably should've. I plan on letting the discussion thread die, so I figured I could overlap a little and that might get more people to vote in the previous poll over the last two hours.

well, by putting this out, people would think the other is closed and not even look perhaps and then this starts up and it is almost overload. no biggie, just getting a little confusing.

Yeah, good point. I won't do that again. I want them to vote in the other one right up until the end.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #2 Poll

Easiest round for me thus far, even though only one of my picks is leading. It's early though and I'm sure those with good taste haven't voted yet...joking

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #2 Poll

Raiders of the Lost Ark vs. Dr. Strangelove??!!? I HATE YOU DUDE!!!

That was the toughest call ever. I went with RAIDERS by a sliver of a hair, because it's not only a perfect movie, a perfect ACTION movie, and a perfect slice of oldschool nostalgia for me, it's the only Indiana Jones movie worth watching and adoring over and over again.

Anyway:

The Shining
The Godfather II
Seven Samurai
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Rear Window

I've seen 1 of the 2 movies in every single matchup this round, so I can't vote....

Totally agree. (though I went with Dr. Strangelove)
