Again I have to ask how many people voting for Hunt have not seen Breaking the Waves?
Because it's "favorite"... How can you say your favorite film is your favorite if you've never seen every film?

It's all based on opinions. You can have opinions even without seeing any film. I know I'd favor District 9 than G-Force.

Perhaps if in Hot Fuzz, they had alluded to Red and Tokyo-Ga, the poll results would be different.

I haven't even seen TC:R but I would still have to agree.

No votes for me. I haven't seen both films in each matchup and I don't want to just vote for those I have seen.

Um, have all the people voting for Quiz Show SEEN Kicking and Screaming and realize that it's NOT the Will Ferrell soccer movie, but an insanely great indie comedy from the early 90's? I have a hard time buying the humongous lead for that bland namby pamby Redford movie.

Forgot all about this one, but each of my favorites won anyway so it's all good.
