    I know we're just a couple of hours into voting but The Jerk having more votes than The Godfather is... interesting...

    I have a feeling The Godfather (1 or 2) won't be in the final.

    Seriously? You sound like a dick. Make fun of me for enjoying the first superhero movie that started the it all? Has 93% on Rotten Tomatoes but thats all 12 year olds right? The sheer praise by anyone for that movie is all juvenile silliness right? Fuck this shit... Im out. Enjoy the 70's

    I'd be all for that. I know I'm probably the only person on the planet that did not care for The Godfather.

    I could definitely see both Godfather films not being in the final. There seems to be a pretty large movement recently of people who put the film down.

    This is a pretty interesting phenomenon that seems to happen when something gets super popular. This is a pretty great scene!

    I think its a good movie, but not "all that and a bag of chips" that everyone makes it. Guess I am just not into organized crime movies.

    It's so much more than just an organized crime movie tho. There is a reason it's a permanent fixture in pretty much any Best List you'll find out there.

    I find the Godfather and part 2 over rated and have since I first saw them. Good movies but I have no desire to ever watch them again. I could watch many other movies from this tournament over and over and never get bored.

    So, basically you're saying you prefer "Superman" over "The Godfather Pts I & II"? Just for the record is all. Good to know where you stand is all. lol

    Not the only, as apparently three others in this poll agree. At this stage in the tournament I am always surprised that some films, in this case, The Godfather, don't have 100% of the vote.
