Really happy about this poll. Now I can vote everyday for something.
Yeah - it's super fun. Also fun talking about films most of us have seen, but never seem to talk about here.

I don't really like Blues Bros or Interview with the Vampire, but if I had to rewatch one I guess I'd pick the latter.

The Blues Brothers and Vampire Chronicles are both about tied for me, both just ok. I hated The Fountain, and when I first started watching Man From Earth I switched it off because of the awful acting but when I tried it again it became a favourite. Don't really care for Let The Right One In or Ice Age. In a total coincidence I rewatched Inception last night, still not great but an easy win over MIB.

(1.0* - x.x*) Did see IwtV a long time ago, pre-score recording. No doubt better than The Blues Brothers, but won't vote.
(4.0* - x.x*) Weird, never ran into this title before. Looks absolutely dreadful, but again no vote from me. Sure hope The Fountain wins though.
(3.0* - 2.0*) Scandinavian quality vs horrible US CG animation.
(1.5* - 2.0*) At least Men in Black didn't pretend to be serious.

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!

16 Låt den rätte komma in (2008) - Ice Age (2002) 2
16 Inception (2010) - Men in Black (1997) 4

I love, love The Blues Brothers, though I also have distant memories of Interview with the Vampire being pretty good.
The Fountain is Aronofsky's weakest film for me (though I still like it), and I like the Twilight Zone episode that is The Man from Earth quite a bit.
Ice Age is fine and all, but Let the Right One In is gorgeous.
I just rewatched Men in Black and was pleasantly surprised, but Inception is very succesful if you take it for what it is - an elaborate heist film.

First round where I've seen everything I think.

The Blues Brothers did nothing for me.
The Man From Earth is one of the most overrated movies out there, no idea how it gets the love that it does. It’s like the epitome of the subreddit Im14andthisisdeep.
Ice Age has not aged well.
Men in Black is one of my favorite popcorn movies so it gets my vote.

1st duel is very close, like both about equal. Although it’s been some years since I’ve seen both.

I guess these two non-votes cancel each other out.

They are both very divisive and particular movies (and pretty much complete opposites in style though a surprisingly appropriate mach up thematically).

I also think IwtV got an extra point from message #378 to #379, so as of right now it should probably be:

11 The Fountain (2006) - The Man from Earth (2007) 14
