    Actually, need to hold back First Blood since it's been only four nominations between for Kris. Once another nomination comes in, we'll officially count it.

    I agree with you. Lumet had an amazing career and I don't think I would put The Verdict in his top 5 either. That being said, this is an '80s tournament. If you're telling me Lumet made a better film in the '80s I want to hear it. Also, I refuse to believe that there are 256 better films made in the decade than The Verdict. I would be willing to bet it's on every one of those lists Mae posts.
    What about Prince of the City?

    I haven't seen that one yet, but I find it hard to believe it's better than The Verdict. Again, my guess is that the Verdict appears on more lists of the best films of the '80s than Prince of the City.

    Well, I don't have a horse in this race as I have seen (or heard of) neither movie, but based on the 9 lists Mae provided The Verdict appeared on 0, and Prince of the City appeared on 1 (The 20 Best 80's movies that time forgot).

    Shamefully, that's one of my blindspots. I know it's a popular film, even though critically it failed (44% on Rotten Tomatoes), I just never had a chance to see it for some reason all these years. Looks like it's not streaming anywhere either, otherwise I'd love to catch up.

    I think you would enjoy it. It's a grown up version of The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink type movies. It also has A Beautiful Girls feel to it. Hopefully you'll be able to find it somewhere to rent.
