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!

6 No Country for Old Men (2007) - The Pianist (2002) 8
10 Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (2001) - Zodiac (2007) 4

I suspect if i rewatch NCFOM and esp. Spirited Away, both match-ups would be different since it seems like compared to a few years ago, i seem to be more into Ghibli but haven't rewatched Spirited Away yet, and I do believe I would appreciate NCFOM more too, although i remember liking certain segments of NCFOM but there being a bit too much talk / conversations that didn't completely interest me in the second part, but it could be that my opinion would be different with a revision.

It also seems like both match-ups are quite close, but I just feel like i'm voting for the easier and more accessible film here.

We're now into QF terrirtory

Oldeuboi (2003) - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) 1
Drive (2011) - There Will Be Blood (2007) 1


Since we are still dealing with a draw, we need one person who didn't vote for the matchup yesterday to take the decision between Lord of The Rings: Fellowship of the Ring or Lord of The Rings: Return of the King

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) (Only vote if you didn't vote in this matchup yesterday)
I saved Latin, what did you ever do ?

I didn't vote yesterday. They're both trash movies, but I remember being truly destroyed by Return of the King. It just had so many false ends. Watching the whole thing was my forty years in the desert. I thought my brain was bleeding. So, yeah, my vote goes to the Fellowship movie for leaving my brain mostly whole.

Crazy how much I've voted for Drive in this game, even when I'm not that big of a fan of the film.
