Haven't seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I'd have voted for T2 over anything here other than Seven Samurai, and there's almost no chance I'd vote for Star Trek again.

Never liked Starship Troopers. Watchmen was just mainstream fun, nothing special.
Star Trek was just about the same as Watchmen. Liked Benjaming Button a bit more.
Seven Samurai is in my all time top 10.
I prefer the original Charlie. Lola is a great ride.

16 Shichinin no samurai (1954) - Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) 9
02 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) - Lola rennt (1998) 19

(1.0* - 4.0*) if only we could've stopped it then vs cheesy but fun sci-fi actioner
(1.5* - 1.5*) More silly space drama vs nice idea but the execution was lacking
(2.0* - 3.5*) Not the worst Kurosawa vs fun but not the best in the series
(2.5* - 2.5*) Hardly remember anything of it vs remember I disliked the soundtrack a lot

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!
