    Eternal Sunshine. I also really enjoyed 28 Days Later, and wish they could both move on, but there's no way I can pick it over Eternal Sunshine.

    ^^This. Yet somehow it's losing.

    I know most people don't see it this way but the 28 (whatever) series is so generic zombie movie to me. I definitely went Eternal Sunshine here.

    Yeah Iím flummoxed that it made this far even. Iím not a huge zombie fan to begin with and I get that itís a pretty popular movie, but itís displaced some much better films.

    I haven't seen ESSM. I liked but didn't love 28 days. I have decided to abstain, since I don't feel 28 days is good enough to advance, and I can't vote for a move I never saw (and I hate Jim Carrey)

    Honestly, this is a really different role for Jim. At least compared to things like The Mask or Ace Ventura or Bruce Almighty where's he's all wacky and goofy (which I also like).

    28 Days Later is anything but generic. I also consider it more of an infected movie.

    Either way, as much as I love it, it has to be Spotless Mind here. It's one of those films that once it ended I knew I had just watched something that will be remembered for a long time.

    Spotless Mind was a poor choice for a date movie for the 2004 version of me. But, on the other hand, it's one of my all-time favorites now, at least of this decade. And here's also a nice lengthy discussion about the film:

    I would highly urge you to give it a chance. I can not stand Jim Carey. Like really can't stand his acting But this is a very different type of role for him, and he didn't bother me here at all. Also this is nothing like The Truman Show. A film where he tried to be serious but was still just1 Jim Carey.

    The poll has closed. 28 Days Later moves on and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is eliminated.

    Not sure that checks out.

    28 Days Later: 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, 3.7 on Letterboxd, and 7.6 on IMDB.
    Eternal Sunshine: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, 4.2 on Letterboxd, and 8.3 on IMDB.
