I won't vote unless I've seen both, and in the case of all of these, I haven't seen both candidates in any match up.

Oops. I voted and forgot to tell you. Sorry!

Five Obstructions was fun, but Bad Education was awesomeness.

I hadn't seen 8½ (haha) of the 28, but I watched 4 of them for this thread. Not sure I can keep up that pace though. A quick count at They Shoot Pictures tells me I've only seen 163 of the 250.

For me, it's all tangled up with my childhood love of the books, but I do think FOTR is a good movie apart from that, and the best of the three.
