09 Interstellar (2014) - Stranger Than Fiction (2006) 9
07 Saw (2004) - Star Wars (1977) 14
11 Midnight in Paris (2011) - Cast Away (2000) 11
09 Yôjinbô (1961) - One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) 14

(1.5* - 3.5*) Nolan is a bad director vs one of Ferrell's best
(4.0* - 2.5*) Good fun (though not sure how it held up after all these years) vs a bit too childish
(2.5* - 1.5*) Mediocre Allen vs Tom Hanks is so bad
(1.5* - 2.5*) Kurosawa, Mifune and samurai are a bad combo vs okay but well overrated

Interstellar is a 💩. But it‘s matched against an even bigger 💩.

0 C'era una volta il West (1968) - The Princess Bride (1987) 1
1 Intouchables (2011) - Jackie Brown (1997)
1 Space Jam (1996) - 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
The Sixth Sense (1999) - Mystic River (2003) 1

For the most part these were easy, although rather uneven. The only one I'm not too sure about is the last one.

West is good, but I love Princess Bride. Intouchables sucked, Jackie Brown is pretty good. Haven't seen Space Jam, but I hate 10 Things I Hate About You. Love The Sixth Sense and Mystic River, but I don't remember much about Mystic River and Sixth Sense has been a favourite for 20 years.

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!

This is harsh! 10 Things I Hate About You is the worst movie so far I voted for and The Sixth Sense is the best movie so far I didn't vote for. :(

Way too long ago I saw Space Jam and I'm sure it won't hold up so well. But 10 Things was also meh. So skipping that duel.

Space Jam and 10 Things I Hate About You are among the "Most Favorited"...really, general users of ICM? Talk about hanging onto childhood nostalgia a bit too much...
