    Use of unnecessary violence in the apprehension of the Star Wars voters HAS been approved.

    I've never seen The Blues Brothers, so I will have to abstain. I don't mind the Star Wars films, never properly got into them though.

    Surely BB starts on -1 for being so close to a musical?

    Also, I’ve just noticed, how did Crocodile Dundee not make the cut?

    Board demographics: there aren’t a whole lot of romcoms in the finals. And Crocodile Dundee was more rom than com, by some distance, mainly because Paul Hogan was never all that funny.

    I agree. It is a odd film to go back and watch, there is far less of him being a fish out of water in New York than I remembered. Three quarters of the film is in Oz and I remember it being the other way around.

    Rolled over for one more day and you can now change your votes, if you've changed your mind.

    I’d like to change my vote for 2 votes please.

    Not only is Empire a Star Wars movie, it’s the best Star Wars movie.

    It deserves a matchup against a peer, Aliens, Raiders, Dundee.

    I like the Blues Brothers but it is just a series of music videos taped together with some...um...tape. It is not really a film.

    Good point.

    It’s SNL Christmas VHS, which is fine, it has merit, but it’s a second class citizen here.
