Liked The Sound of Music but haven't seen it in a while, Ratatouille was ok. Hate Night of the Hunter, Blood is ok. Don't like 8 1/2 or The Wrestler. I love Battle Royale and Shaun of the Dead, but Battle Royale gets more stale and cheesy with every rewatch and Shaun of the Dead is on point every time.

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!

Fuck the guy who made these match-ups putting twbb VS night of the hunter in round 1 :down:

The sound of music is a movie I see once a year on Christmas day, it's cheesy and boring though. Ratatouille was fun.

The night of the hunter is an extremely beautiful movie but TWBB is probably the best movie of the 21st century and has the best actor performances as well in both DDL as Dano.

Not seen 8 1/2

Didnt really like Battle Royale, Shaun of the Dead was okay
