Battle of the generations? Mirabile dictu, I didn't see LdB in a theater. I watched it for the sake of the ICM check, I think. It left me cold, which may say more about me than it.

Anyway, this game seems in the same ballpark as the one where people write "Red earth or Red dust?" And the next person chooses one (often at random) and says "White nights or White heat?" etc. By what criteria is it possible to decide between some of these pairs?
In short, good clean fun. :)

Crazy, Stupid Love is one of the handful I hadn't seen when this started. Just watched it today, and it turned out to be more enjoyable than I had expected.

Gravity v NBK could go either way. They are both good, but flawed. The other two were easy choices. haven't seen Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Haven't seen The Mask. I need to revisit City Lights - and might do that during this competition - but my half-remembered viewing easily beats X Men. Also not a fan of Natural Born Killers.

I haven’t seen Crazy, Stupid, Love, so no vote there. NBK was an incomprehensible mess, so easy vote for Gravity there. Snatch was fun, but forgettable. Brad Pitt’s role is the only thing I remember about that movie. And X-Men is fun, but it can’t compete with a Chaplin at full strength.

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!

Watch out with your votes for crazy, stupid, love. That's the one with Steve Carell and not punch, drunk, love from PTA with Sandler.

In this round... Movies I forgot most about.

Haven't seen nbk and crazy stupid love.
Took Snatch above batman begins although I can't remember much about either. Can't remember much about xmen either but city lights was definitely better in my books.

Edit: NVM, haven't seen 1st xmen, only the second somehow.

(2.5* - 3.0*) Both fun, but CSL slightly more so
(4.5* - 4.5*) Lower range vs upper range masterpiece. The closest I'll get to the overview effect apart from going into space myself
(0.5* - 4.5*) Wish that's where it had ended vs fun and amusing Ritchie.
(1.5* - 0.5*) Marvel blah vs Chaplin blergh
