    A little piece of me just died having to vote against Shaun of the Dead, but I had to go with Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Besides A Christmas Story, I can't think of any other holiday film I can watch on a 24 hour loop as some channels do now for both. Such a great film!

    We have to repeat this poll until Groundhog Day wins so you should just vote for it now.

    Could have gone with any of the three. Groundhog Day is probably the best overall film of the group, but I had to go with Monty Python for just pure comedy.

    That's a really good point. Monty Python is hilarious, but pretty one-dimensional. Holy Grail and the whole collection were important for tearing down old dogmas, but other films have achieved more besides. Food for thought.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail moves on to the Quarterfinals, while Groundhog Day and Shaun of the Dead are eliminated.

    They fought valiantly, but they were up against a titan.
