Like Beyonce said:

6 The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) 10
2 Cloud Atlas (2012) - The Revenant (2015) 5
5 I Am Legend (2007) - The School of Rock (2003) 6
6 Dogville (2003) - Spider-Man (2002) 5

(1.5* - 1.0*) Imagine having to vote for The Shawshank Redemption
(3.5* - 1.5*) Decent scifi/fantasy bender vs so boring I actually fell asleep for a bit in the theater.
(3.0* - 1.5*) Solid zombie flick vs I don't like rock music very much.
(4.0* - 0.5*) One of von Trier's best vs yuck yuck yuck

:shifty: You aren't ready for my round 2 match-ups.


Ps. I'm updating the scores on the first post Saturday as I'm not home now.

Albajos do you include votes after 12pm in your stats?
Is there also a Stat with closest match-ups? If not, I'll be able to make some myself this weekend.

2 Cloud Atlas (2012) - The Revenant (2015) 5
5 I Am Legend (2007) - The School of Rock (2003) 6
6 Dogville (2003) - Spider-Man (2002) 5

Voting between Shawshank and 2001 is indeed insane for a 1st round match-up but voted for Shawshank as it just left me with such a good feeling.

Haven't seen atlas, rock and dogville.

No, I have also double-checked with your numbers in the first post. The Birds and The Green Mile should have 1 point less though, because my personal error when voting.

I decided against it. We will get a lot of ties and close ties in later rounds. So far the Highest loser will suffice.

7 The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) 12
3 Cloud Atlas (2012) - The Revenant (2015) 5
6 I Am Legend (2007) - The School of Rock (2003) 6
8 Dogville (2003) - Spider-Man (2002) 5

I don't like I Am Legend at all, I am still waiting for a great adaptation of the Matheson novel - it has so much potential,with The Last Man on Earth being the best so far - but it is still better than The School of Rock.

Shame to vote for something like that and then two votes prior I am voting against The Shawshank redemption but it certainly keeps it interesting!

Two of my votes can be removed. I haven't seen the Machinist, I mixed it up with something else. And I added a vote from connordenney to mine because he was creative with the use of bold. So The Birds shoud have 13 and Ghost World 17

If you wonder about closest battles so far:
0
The Incredibles (2004) - Superbad (2007) 16-16

1
Home Alone (1990) - Zoolander (2001) 14-15

2
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) 13-11
The Blues Brothers (1980) - Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) 15-13
À bout de souffle (1960) - Goodfellas (1990) 18-20
Edward Scissorhands (1990) - Wreck-It Ralph (2012) 11-13

3
The Conversation (1974) - Faa yeung nin wa (2000) 15-18
The Fountain (2006) - The Man from Earth (2007) 11-14
The Usual Suspects (1995) - Dial M for Murder (1954) 17-14
Wo hu cang long (2000) - La haine (1995) 18-15

so top 10 is already within 3 points difference.

11 The Shawshank Redemption (1994) - 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) 17
5 Cloud Atlas (2012) - The Revenant (2015) 10
10 I Am Legend (2007) - The School of Rock (2003) 10
13 Dogville (2003) - Spider-Man (2002) 7

Easiest pick: Cloud Atlas over The Revenant; a zany film with famous actors in unrecognisable multiple roles versus repetitive survivalist stuff.

Hardest pick: The School of Rock over I Am a Legend. Had to think twice about this, but really like Jack Black and Miranda Cosgrove in Rock.

Which is not to say that 2001 over Shawshank is an "easy" pick, but it's easier than many others so far (Conversation vs In the Mood etc).

Not seen: Dogville. Maybe for the TSPDT Challenge this year; we'll see.

Cloud atlas is a superb film although the novel is better. I'm still amazed that an adaptation of this supposedly unfilmable novel turned out to be so great. Don't be put off by not having enjoyed the Wachowski's other films.

You're right

Guys ... guys!! You owe it to yourselves. Get Cloud Atlas, put it on a big screen, drop some acid or your intoxicant of choice, maybe find yourself in an emotional crisis like I did, and see this movie for the first time. I guarantee nothing except Halle Berry in white face, Ben Whishaw's almost nude body, and Hugh Grant as a cannibal. That sounds terrible, doesn't it? But it's not. It's great.
