I need to get the winner of this matchup so I can move on to the round of 16. I am only going to leave this one open for 24 hours.

#3 The Shawshank Redemption
vs
#35 Leon: The Professional

Leon.

I've always felt that Shawshank was vastly overrated.

I just checked the previous poll/tie. I found it funny that Buttmunker who has professed his love for Shawshank in numerous threads didn't even vote.

The Mist is fucking awesome. I love Leon, it is a masterful film, but Shawshank gets the edge and my vote.

Very very close, but I voted for Leon. Ask me tomorrow, and my vote could easily be different.
