Ok, you guys are all grizzled veterans of this now, so I'll dispense with the usual rules.

I only have 29 Universal DVD's, so rather than a funky bracket I'm going to pull in 3 Criterion Universal titles and give them crappy matchups.

ROUND 1

Blood Simple
vs.
Out Of Sight

Vertigo
vs.
The Scarlet Empress (see what I mean Posted Image)
2002 Sight & Sound Challenge: 321  Last Watched: L'enfance Nue
Last 8 Films Watched: In the Loop - A- / It Might Get Loud - B+ / What Just Happened? - B / Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - C- / Drums Along the Mohawk - A- / Punisher War Zone - B+ / Moon - C+ / A Man For All Seasons - B+

Blood Simple - This is a vote for the film, not the current DVD that doesn't include the theatrical cut of the film.

The Scarlet Empress

- Walter.

Fidelity to the source should always be the goal for Blu-ray releases.
