This was a rather tough choice for me, particulary tough was choosing against In the Mood for Love since I find it one of the greatest films I've ever seen. I've seen it only once however while I've seen Ikiru four times and it's dearer to my heart.

I think Airplane!, but really none surprise me that much. It's not we're still left with stuff like Superbad or something similar.
Personally I don't understand how In Bruges and Children of Men got this far, but that's mostly because I never understood why these are regarded that highly. Not bad movies, but not in the same league as most of the others in round 4.

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!

Was thinking of the same movies actually. Some personal letdowns too for me although I understand them being generally liked.
