    Best of luck Bro. Admittedly though, I've not seen a single film on your list

    Good luck to you as well, bro. I have not seen only The Avengers, Whisper of the Heart and The Greatest Showman from your list.

    Also Far from Heaven is from 2002, SS. I know it's probably a typo, but it bothers me lol.

    I actually noted and changed that for all the stats, which are still valid, but forgot to update the OP. Cheers.

    I went for Bro. I couldn't pick a list with Gump over one with Brazil and Purple Rose. Also like A History of Violence, Blow Out, and Ed Wood from his list a lot. Ed Wood I'd probably have as my favourite Tim Burton film. Dave certainly has some good choices as well. I really liked Her and of course Raiders, Rocky, and Toy Story 2 are great and entertaining films. I think the lows of Dave's list like Space Jam and the aforementioned Zemeckis give Bro the edge.

    You're the first person I've ever heard of to dislike Space Jam. Take a bow.

    I dunno if I even really dislike it haha. I saw it when I was 11 I think. Just odd to see it on a list like this I think is why I pointed it out as a 'low'. Maybe not the right word - but when considered against the best on Bro's it does stand out. Think your progression is looking safe anyway tho!

    I'm getting squashed and the bros don't even wanna say why they prefer Dave's list over mine lol. Would like to hear some thoughts and start some kind of discussion...

    It’s pretty obvious why he’s winning when you consider the member base, plus he guaranteed himself a free vote from Jon solely on the basis of picking some animated movie with a Japanese director.

    Your list is better overall, but it was in tough for the popular vote here.

    I'm assuming you know this is Ghibli and not just some random anime, right?

    Of course, but we all know you could have picked any random Japanimation to secure a Jon vote.

    Voted for Bro, just more movies there I enjoy. Daves has 4 big movies with Rocky, Avengers, Jedi and Raiders but after that there isn't much I personally care for. But with Bro I really enjoy Predator, Devil's Rejects, Werewolf in London and history of Violence, and Escape from new york plus Quick and the dead is just awesome.
