Let's say — hypothetically, mind you — that someone had not seen either of these.  Which one should yo watch first?  That is, which is the best?

As always, don't forget to vote in the previous matchups, if you haven't already.  Links are below.

Last week's matchup remains disconcertingly close.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

We're assuming first is best, I presume?

Correct.  Edited for clarity.

God dammit people! Back to the Future is obviously the far superior film.

Maybe.  Biff and George can get pretty annoying, though.

Then again, so can Karl, Dwayne, and Richard.

But I voted for Argyle, the bear, and Christmas in Hollis.
