6 Chinatown (1974) - Les quatre cents coups (1959) 12

15 Smultronstället (1957) - A Christmas Story (1983) 0

Glad to see Christmas Story on zero. Surprises Chinatown so far behind.

Two toughest match in this tournament for me.. Chinatown and 400 blows both are my I-get-why-its-so-loved-but-I-don't-share-that-love category and Lenin and Men are two of my favorites.

I liked Interstellar and Stranger Than Fiction, but more likely to revisit Interstellar. Love Saw and Star Wars, Star Wars is fun but Saw is just really good. Midnight in Paris is meh, Cast Away was pretty fun. Yojimbo sucks and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is the best film ever made, so anything was gonna lose against it.
