Next up...

0 Edward Scissorhands (1990) - Wreck-It Ralph (2012) 0
0 Apollo 13 (1995) - Paris, Texas (1984) 1
1 Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Ghostbusters (1984) 0
1 The Usual Suspects (1995) - Dial M for Murder (1954) 0

Haven't seen Ralph, though neither of those excite me. Been a long time since I saw Apollo 13, but the other five are all 8 or 9 ratings for me. Good matchups!

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!

7 Edward Scissorhands (1990) - Wreck-It Ralph (2012) 10
1 Apollo 13 (1995) - Paris, Texas (1984) 17
17 Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Ghostbusters (1984) 8
13 The Usual Suspects (1995) - Dial M for Murder (1954) 11

Just seen Dial M today for this poll, it really needs some help. Usual Suspects is a very entertaining movie, but Dial M get my vote, it's excellent. My estimation for Hitchcock has vastly grown since the Mubi special last year. I loved Ghostbuster as a kid, but Singin' in the Rain is a great movie.

18 Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Ghostbusters (1984) 8
14 The Usual Suspects (1995) - Dial M for Murder (1954) 11

Easiest pick: Singin' in the Rain

Hardest pick: Actually a tie between the other two matches that, both of which feature films that I like but I don't love as much as many others do.

Not seen Apollo 13. Not going to watch it for this poll, but if I ended up liking it more than Paris, Texas it would be a very pleasant surprise.

Haven't seen Wreck-It Ralph. Been a while since I saw Edward Scissorhands, but I recall enjoying it. The last two were both tough choices, especially the final pair.

I swear I didn't see this post before posting the exact same thing. :lol: I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought that.. Now, if we can just find Ralph, who, evidently is missing... (Suspect or victim?)
