    That's really too bad, there are some good classics here. I mean Godzilla! Brazil! Starship Troopers! Cocoon!

    Really I fail to comprehend how Men in Black has more votes than Brazil! It's a fun movie, sure, but...

    Mad Max is good but I feel that The Road Warrior is a much better all around film. Don't even bother with part III, Rick. It didn't exist. IT WAS NEVER MADE

    Totally agree. The Road Warrior is the more iconic film.

    I disagree with not watching part 3 though. It's a bad film, but it's worth a watch for a few reasons. The first reason is that it's become a part of pop culture with the phrase "TWO MEN ENTER, ONE MAN LEAVES!" The other reason is that it's so cheesy it's fun to laugh at. This is especially the case with Tina Turner.

    Are you looking forward to the new Mad Max film coming out? EW just did a big spread on it.

    Armageddon is terrible, sorry. It does not belong on any top-anything list. What redeeming features, if any, does it have?

    I think it's a fun summer Blockbuster. I marvel in the craziness of the whole plot, but it works for me. I think it has some redeeming qualities, you just can't judge it on the same curve as you would some of the other more classic films in the tournament.

    You know, I'm positive I watched Armageddon a year or so ago on a Netflix rental but I'll be damned if I can remember anything specific about it at all.

    Steve Buscemi and Michael Clarke Duncan singing Leaving on a Jet Plane cracks me up.

    And the part where the kids yells “Look mommy, that salesman is on TV!” gets me everytime.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    It educated the whole population to theory previously understood only by those who had studied science at least to the level of the third grade.

    Too bad Brazil loses so early on, but some good ones do move on.

    I certainly do plan to watch Brazil eventually, I've heard a lot of great things about that one. Just finding the time and means to watch it.

    Just watched Primer based on your recommendation, Matt. It was...umm...well, I finished it at least.
