I'm in the process of making my decision about resurrections now, and I've been reading through these fun cases for resurrection today and picking back through the 90's bracket commentary thread to get a sense of where people stand on these films. Rather than choosing my own favorites, I'd like to be a benevolent god and put through the five films that most people would like to see in the next round, so I'm giving priority to films that seem to be generating most love and to films that have been most eloquently argued for.
So far, two clear favorites stand out and will most likely go through - these films have made the top of many of your lists and they have also been well-argued for:
Other films that I'm considering based on level of interest and argument - deciding on these last three will be trickier:
The Matrix (pix makes a nice case in this thread for this one)
Toy Story (seems more popular than Toy Story 2)
South Park (pix also makes a case for this one, too, though I'd like to hear a few more arguments for it as I've not seen it and I honestly have no interest in it)
Schizopolis (Basil makes a great case for this one, and I'm leaning in its favor though I've not seen it)
Safe (skjerva's arguments for this one are pretty compelling though there seem to be a number of you who really dislike it - again, I've not seen it)
Seven - this discussion has been well-documented - I find arguments pro and con compelling. I am reluctant, though, to put another Fincher through
Last of the Mohicans
The Truman Show
Nightmare Before Christmas
So! I'd like to decide on a final five in the next couple of hours before I have to go out tonight. Speak now or forever hold your peace. I want to know which one or two films (please, no more than that) of the second above list you would like to see put through. Make a case, convince me! (If you'd like to put forward a film not on that list but eligible for resurrection, that's great, but don't just give me a title, give me some compelling reasons to favor your choice. If you would like to make a case against Hoop Dreams or Fight Club, do that now, too.)
Thanks, btw, skjerva, for starting this thread - it's been incredibly helpful!
