Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

Blue Velvet
Children of Men
Apocalypse Now
Office Space
Casablanca

The only one I had trouble with is Office Space/Fight Club so I gave it to the underdog.
The rest were really easy.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

odd matchups...

#1 Blue Velvet
#2 Goodfellas (just barely over CoM though)
#3 Apocalypse Now
#4 don't care
#5 Casablanca

Casablanca against Spinal Tap? I like Tap, but if it wins I may have to retire

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

Memento (Blue Velvet is great and all but Memento is my pick.)
Children of Men (Very easy pick. Goodfellas is ok but Casino is 10 times the movie Goodfellas is.)
Apocalypse Now (Easy pick. SBM doesnt deserve a place in here.)
Fight Club (Easy pick since its one of my top 10.)
Casablanca (I am not a big fan of Spinal Tap)

Same same...Office Space/Fight Club was a tough one though, both in my top 10. I have 4 of my top 10 picks in this round, the others being Apocalypse Now and Goodfellas (I can't take anyone seriously when they say Casino is 10 times better...most of it was rehashed from Goodfellas).

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

Wow, I was actually able to vote in two this time! I haven't been able to vote in most of these, because I haven't seen one of the movies... or in some cases, either of them.

I picked Memento over Blue Velvet, and Fight Club over Office Space. Both easy choices for me.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

Memento
Goodfellas
Apocalypse
Office
Casablanca

Fight Club is one of my all-time favorites, but I'm more likely to pop in Office Space, than FC. And, since it's about what we are more likely to watch, I figured I should go with that.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Round #2/Group #4 Poll

Matchup #1/Movie 1 --#21 Blue Velvet
Matchup #1/Movie 2 --#44 Memento

Memento all the way. BV is a vile piece of shit, just like the rest of David Lynch's movies. He's a hack.

----------

Matchup #2/Movie 1 --#2 Goodfellas
Matchup #2/Movie 2 --#63 Children of Men

Goodfellas was one of the best movies of the decade. CoM was good, but not close.

----------

Matchup #3/Movie 1 --#31 Apocalypse Now
Matchup #3/Movie 2 --#95 Stand By Me

A little tougher. Have to go with AN.

----------

Matchup #4/Movie 1 --#15 Fight Club
Matchup #4/Movie 2 --#50 Office Space

I still do not see the attraction of OS. It was a mediocre comedy, at best. FC wins this by knockout.

----------

Matchup #5/Movie 1 --#18 Casablanca
Matchup #5/Movie 2 --#47 This is Spinal Tap

TiST is another one that I guess I just don't get.
