Both are top 5 favorites. That being said: Godfather.

The Godfather....


I like The Empire Strikes Back but it would barely make my top 50 or 100 list....

The Godfather (although it would have been Jaws if the previous match-up went differently)

The Godfather, though I would have chosen II had it beat out Empire.

No problem. It was fun for me too. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote and comment. The next tournies should be very interesting. The comedy tourney seems wide open to me, the horror tourney seems to be more top heavy.

Neither is even in my top ten, but Empire is what made me a fan of Star Wars, whereas Godfather is something I just quote from time to time.

Yes, this was a wonderful little exercise and I think it sparked some fun discussions and debates. Kudos for not only running this tourney, but for the thoughtful organization behind it. The bracket and frequent polling options really made this an exciting thing to follow and participate in, whereas a length thread would easily have become unmanageable (and uninteresting) long ago. Splendid job, old bean, simply splendid!

I haven't really re-thought my top 10 in a while now. Maybe that'll be a mini-project for this week.

Re: "Favorite" Movie Tournament Championship

I'm going to abstain. I'm not saying it is, only that it gives the appearance, of a battle of film snobs vs fan boys. No offense meant to anyone...
