    I guess most of us love the smell of xenomorph acid in the morning... Too bad AN had to face this literal monster of a movie.

    I literally just flipped a coin here. Both are masterpieces. It landed Apocalypse Now.

    Well, that's Apocalypse Now officially fucked.

    Honestly, there are 8-10 movies still in the tournament (for now), that I would vote over Alien. Several will be eliminated this round though.

    In reality these two should be much, much closer - Apocalypse Now is arguably the better film. But as I mentioned before, high-concept/blockbuster films usually corral the bulk of the votes in these tournaments.

    I told y'all already. Alien is going to win. Everything else is fighting for second.

    Apocalypse Now would have made it a little further if these were matched up like they do in the NCAA tournament. You know: 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, etc. But it was not going to win in the end, so I guess it doesn't matter.

    The poll has closed. Alien moves on and Apocalypse Now is eliminated.

    It's clear. If anything but Alien wins it will be a huge upset.
