Clockwork is way too interesting of a movie to lose to Terminal.
Her vs Virgin Suicides was a really hard pick. i went back and forth a bunch.
Didn't care for Tiffany's. Jesse James was ai'giht.
Haven't seen Melancholia.

This is pretty much my thought process. Terminal was fine enough and an interesting story, but can't hold a candle to Clockwork. I really liked both Her and Virgin, but when I saw Virgin Suicides in the theater (LONG before I ever got into film) it blew my mind as to what was possible with film; even reflecting on it, it holds up. I hated Tiffany's; Jesse James made it an easy pick. Melancholia is good overall and a fantastic look into depression; Ferris just struck me as a guy who needed to be punched in the face.

Haven't seen Tiffany's, it would have to be pretty impressive to beat Jesse James though, that is an excellent film.

Imagine an entitled Instagram "model", but set in the 1960s. If that excites you, it's worth a watch. :whistling:

I like The Terminal, but Clockwork is a masterpiece. I haven't seen The Virgin Suicides, and I probably won't be in the mood to watch it today but I'd probably vote for Her. Tiffany's sucks and Jesse James was pretty awesome. I really disliked Melancholia though I think I'd like it more now, but gotta go with meh Ferris for now.

(2.0* - 2.5*) Uninspired sci-fi vision vs mediocre drama
(2.5* - 3.0*) Amusingly irritating characters vs an actual decent western.
(3.5* - 1.5*) Good von Trier vs annoying 80s USA nonsense.

Easiest pick: Her over Virgin Suicides. Not only does Her boast one of the greatest movie quotes of all time (no, not the dead cat line), it's also up against a motion picture that I find tepid at best.

Hardest pick: Melancholia over Ferris Bueller's. By default. Still a fairly easy pick, but I had to think twice about it, which wasn't the case with The Terminal and ACO.

Not seen: Jesse James - though it would have to be pretty bad for me to preference Breakfast at Tiffany's above it.
