    Well, the first match has a movie I've never seen, two classic movies I haven't seen and have no real wish to see, and a Frankie Muniz movie that I've seen aprts of and is okay....so pass.

    1. The Picture of Dorian Gray- SEE IT! This film is great! Taut, moody, and well-performed. Perfectly captures the horror of the story which I am a fan of solely because of this film.
    2. Santa Clause 2- Seen it. It's good.
    3. Cheaper By the Dozen 2- As much as I dislike this film series...
    4. Unstoppable- ...I don't think this movie shouldn't beat Dorian.

    YAY! This contest is back.

    1. Batman (1966)- Ah, great movie...just great.
    2. An American Tail- Big movie for kids in the 90s.
    3. The Lady Vanishes- Hitchcock!
    4. Bender's Game- Not alot of film pefigree for a movie I haven't seen.

    I've only seen one movie in the second match so when that happens in this contest, I'll abstain.

    1. Limelight- The movie that cemented Chaplin as one of my favorite filmmakers. Slow, overblown, and sentimental, but otherwise a great movie.
    2. The Lost Boys- Sounds awesome!
    3. Alvin and the Chipmunks- Seen it.
    4. Evil Dead II- Threat!

    1. The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad- It is SO awesome this movie doesn't need help.
    2. Wild Strawberries- The parts I saw looked interesting.
    3. Full Metal Jacket- Big movie.
    4. Joe's Apartment- Not familiar.

    The Lost Boys- Peter Pan with vampires.
    Evil Dead II- When Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell came into their own.
    Limelight
    Alvin and the Chipmunks

    Full Metal Jacket- One of the greatest WAR films ever, besides being a Kubrick masterpiece. One of the few films that you can split in two.

    Joe's Apartment
