(1) The Godfather vs. (9) Cool Hand Luke
(26) To Kill a Mockingbird vs. (2) The Shawshank Redemption
(4) LotR: RotK vs. (5) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
(6) Silence of the Lambs vs. (30) L.A. Confidential

Oh man this is a hard round, Now I am dreading the Final Four and Magnificent Two. Those are going to be excruciating.

We should have a tourney on Hotest Movie Babes.

Edit: If McT is the Anti-Nunis, I guess I am the Anti-Dave Henry. Sorry Dave
I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!

Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.
