    The Warriors may not be the 'greatest' movie of this group but it's my favorite. Sad they likely won't be asked to come out and play again next round.
    Alright, we'll call it a draw.

    I have a strong affinity for all three for very different reasons. Ultimately I had to go with Exorcist (iconic in every way) and President's Men (I love the newspaper genre, and all it's idealism at getting out the truth - something we need more of in journalism these days).
    WANTED:
    Drawing of the Three #255
    Gunslinger #255
    Charlie the Choo Choo - #255

    All the President's Men and The Warriors tied for second. Would love to avoid a tie here

    Nice comeback by the Warriors! Wish I could multiply my vote like BMG music club memberships.

    Yeah, but Woodward and Bernstein would probably catch you with the help of Deep Throat.
