Knockout Competition 21st Century : Final Rounds

#1

Post by Coryn »

Decided to keep it all in one topic from here on.
16 movies remain and the matchups have been very close in the previous round, I can only guess it will be the same in the coming days.

RULES

Please remember voting lasts 24 hours from 00:00 to 23:59 CET
Any votes casted after this time won't count, no exceptions. Only vote when seen both movies.
CET can be found here: https://time.is/nl/CET

Please have fun and feel free to discuss the movies stated or even hand out scores if you feel like it. Unlike the world cup there is no immediate need to add movies to your watchlists.

El laberinto del fauno (2006) - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) 1

4 good films but Oldboy and Eternal are probably top 5 of the movies remaining here for my taste.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Drive (2011) - The Dark Knight (2008)

I'll have to rewatch Drive because I don't remember much from it at all.

1 Drive (2011) - The Dark Knight (2008)
2 There Will Be Blood (2007) - Wo hu cang long (2000) 1

seen the first two as well, but at this moment can't decide between them, both very much the same mix of impressive and uninteresting in memory
