  • Up with generosity!
    • yet more inanities!
This matchup is open to anyone who can revisit the films and post a verdict by 11:59pm Hawaii time (GMT -9) on Sunday, August 9.

If these two films end up tied at that deadline, ses593 will then cast the tiebreaking verdict.

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

This deadlines kinda snuck up, didn't it? I'll rewatch at least Goodfellas and get a verdict in.

Would it be terrible to just post links to previous discussions and then a verdict? I think, like Junior, it's pretty obvious which way I fall with this one.

People have been doing that already. But it would be good if a majority of people tried to revisit films or offer something new to say in the comparison of the two films.

not only terrible but terribly boring  ;D
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.
