0 Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007) - Batman (1989) 5
5 Det sjunde inseglet (1957) - La La Land (2016) 2
1 Casino (1995) - Amadeus (1984) 7
4 12 Years a Slave (2013) - Gone with the Wind (1939) 4

Haven't seen that PotC but I generally hate em all. Batman is ok. Don't like Seventh Seal or La La Land. Casino is pretty good, Amadeus is meh. 12 Years a Slave is trash, and I like Gone with the Wind.

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!

I haven't seen Batman for such a long time that I don't think I should vote on that match-up, although I recall liking Jack Nicholson's performance.

(1.5* - 0.5*) Not the worst PotC vs serious/darker Batman is dumb
(1.0* - 2.5*) Terrible Bergman vs mediocre musical with some bad singing
(1.0* - 1.5*) Scorsese + crime = yawn vs wants to be extravagant but can't quite cut it
(1.5* - 1.0*) Poor drama vs way way way too long

Tim and Jimi posted at the same time, so I think some math got off track.
With Smoover included, I believe the numbers now are:

Dr. Strangelove is very very high on my all time list. That 12 Angry Men vs. Once Upon a Time in America matchup is brutal - I'd vote for either over at least 80% of films we've had to pick from in this competition, and choosing between them isn't easy. My pick could easily be different on another day.

Love Dr Strangelove, didn't like Luke. Love 12 Angry Men, America was ok. Great Dictator is one of the better Chaplin films, but has nothing on Office Space which is hilarious. I loved Amelie for a long time, but last time I saw it, I was nearly going to dislike it, so my vote has to go to the ok Nightmare Before Christmas.
