    Munich is my dark-horse pick to win the tournament. Quintessential post-9/11 American film.

    I can't put my finger on it, but Munich did not click with me for some reason.

    I will say the scene where the naked woman is shot on the boat has stuck with me since I saw the film when it was released. Just a really haunting scene.

    Was going to say the same thing. Also the best anti-drug PSA ever.

    One Hour Photo is fantastic. One of my favorite Robin Williams performances. Anyone who only thinks of him as a comedian should watch it.

    Yes, it's great seeing One Hour Photo get the recognition it deserves! Also, random thought, but isn't it kinda weird that it's based on a concept that doesn't really exist anymore?

    Also also, Munich needs way more votes. It's the best film of '05.

    I would say in this alone the Departed takes Munich.

    Insomnia was another great non-comidic performance from Robin. I nominated it, but it didn't get seconded.

    Also, replace 1st/1st that got stolen:

    Carrie, Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, The Gunslinger

    Brokeback Mountain is up there but Munich is definitely at the top for me. Just tremendous.

    I agree. I would've seconded it but I was on vacation during the nominations process.

    I was surprised it didn't get seconded. It's my least favorite Nolan film.

    Again, if it comes to it, take away my vote for One Hour Photo. It is a good movie but not as good as Requiem for a Dream.

    The tie we’re concerned with is for sixth place. Other higher ties are okay. So that won’t do any good.
