(1) The Godfather vs. (17) Schindler's List
Meh, whatever.
(9) Cool Hand Luke vs. (8) Sin City
How is Sin City even in here?
(26) To Kill a Mockingbird vs. (10) The Princess Bride
Oooh, tough. No wait, not really.
(18) LotR: Fellowship of the Ring vs. (2) The Shawshank Redemption
I must stand up against the overrating of Shawshank. It's good, but not that good.
(4) LotR: RotK vs. (13) HP: Prisoner of Azkaban
Tough choice. Great adaptation and great movie, despite the "Marauder Mishap".
(76) Misery vs (5) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Two good movies, but Cuckoo is the better adaptation.
(6) Silence of the Lambs vs. (11) The Green Mile
The Green Meh.
(19) Rear Window vs. (30) L.A. Confidential
Two great movies, one greater than the other.

Did you forget to bold one of the movies or forget to type Pass?? Result won't change, but the score could if you didn't mean to Pass.

This one I need some time to think about.... both are simply the best of their respective series but they're so different I can't judge right now...
If I were locked in a room with nothing to do but watch one of these two movies, I'd watch RotK first because I really enjoyed it when I saw it in theatres, but I've yet to find/make the time to watch the Extended version even though I've really been meaning to... I'm not sure if I could watch it twice in a row whereas I could probably watch PoA on repeat all day long... It's a tough choice, even harder cause I'm the tie-breaker, but I'm going with gut instinct and not longevity... RotK

(1) The Godfather vs. (9) Cool Hand Luke
I'd rather watch young Newman than old, fat Brando. It's the Nunis vote
(26) To Kill a Mockingbird vs. (2) The Shawshank Redemption
TKaM is a fantastic film and a very good translation to screen, but Shawshank has much better acting and I'd watch it whenever it's on
(4) LotR: RotK vs. (5) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Jack was great, but RotK is more fun and less depressing to watch
(6) Silence of the Lambs vs. (30) L.A. Confidential
L.A. Confidential just has more watchability than SotL

I have a feeling Shawshank might be the only one I voted for that has a chance to make it to the Final Four...
