    Sorry, got to vote for what I've seen. Having said that, I am surprised at the currant standings.

    If you haven't seen Rebel, it's streaming on HBO Max. Very well worth a watch. Could perhaps make you change your vote.

    This needs to happen. And here's my stated vote for Rebel Without a Cause in case there is a tie.

    This really is craziness. I obviously voted for Rebel just in case we need to state votes, but hopefully a few more people come in and vote before it closes. I can only imagine some of those votes for The Fly haven't seen Rebel.

    The poll has closed tied. However, stated votes favored Rebel Without a Cause. It moves on and The Fly is eliminated.

    So happy its moving on. Although I'm a bit alarmed at how close this one was. Especially considering how well Rebel was doing up till this point.

    I think some people might've been voting with the remake in mind. The original is good but not that good.

    That's what I was thinking too. When people mention The Fly they're almost always talking about the remake and not the original. It's one of the few instances where I think the remake eclipses the original.
