Don't worry. I'm sure everybody has one or more gaping holes

Too easy.

edit: Haha, or not.

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

Unfortunately, and despite what my hat and monocle might have you think, I cannot afford a DeLorean at this point in time.

Also, new people should vote for BttF. This thread is painful.

Agreed, newbies need to vote, it pains me to see BttF this close to Die Hard, all you newbies need to make sure Die Hard pulls away, if it's not ahead by at least 15 votes then something is wrong with the world.

The truth of the matter is that they are both excellent films, and though Back to the Future is in almost every way a "better" film I totally understand somebody choosing Die Hard. Die Hard is a ton of fun, and it's probably the best action movie ever made, which must count for something. That said, I just don't even see how Die Hard is more entertaining. Back to the Future also, in my opinion, has a much better variety of memorable scenes and sequences, whereas Die Hard, due to its single location and simpler plot, feels more like one long memorable sequence with all the smaller memorable moments feeling blurred together.

But that's just me.

Of course, I can't stay this reasonable for long (my mustache and monocle only go so far) and I do have to end on a more serious note: If you don't vote for Back to the Future I will personally coax Michael Bay into making three more Transformers films, each longer and more stupefying than the next. I will then get him to do remakes of Casablanca, Citizen Kane, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Rear Window.

I do think the choice is clear.

This threat means nothing to me. First, there's always the chance that Bay will make another The Rock, second, if I can live with someone completely murderalizing a certain franchise that shall remain nameless, then I can deal with any of that. Also, I watched Buckaroo Banzai and Daywatch, I don't see any of your films suddenly killing me after making it through such atrocities.

I wish to live in a world where BttF and Die Hard are both viewed as great movies, but Die Hard is rightly viewed as a near masterpiece and far superior to BttF, I will not rest while you are about subverting my dream.

I want this poll to receive more than 100 ballots. That would be something.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
