    The roughest ones for me are 1H (My Fair Lady vs. To Kill a Mockingbird) seeing as each of those are among my favorite films of all time. One will obviously win, but whichever is eliminated will be a tragedy. I think I’ll be supporting My Fair Lady in this matchup.

    It also pains me to see both of Billy Wilder’s nominated films going head to head in 1K (The Apartment vs. Sunset Blvd), especially as those are my two favorite of his. Still, think the edge goes to Sunset Blvd, if nothing else for Gloria Swanson’s role. But just barely.

    Finally, 1S is a bear. Dr. Strangelove vs. Pulp Fiction. Could it have been any more different films going up against one another? Both completely brilliant in totally different ways. Still, while Pulp Fiction has three amazing performances (Thurman, Jackson, and Travolta) Dr Strangelove has three amazing performances by the same guy. Vote to Strangelove.

    My goodness! 4 of my choices are facing each other in the first round! Oh, the indecision! And then I also have Dr. Strangelove (one of my favourites) against my choice of Pulp Fiction. Can’t wait to see how this all breaks down.

    Matchups are supposed to last one week (so until the 9th) but I may not have internet access that day, so round 2 may begin a few days late.
