    Vertigo

    Rebecca

    Lynch does tend to be overrated on this board.

    Is this tournament double elimination? Chinatown defeated Vertigo two rounds back. [​IMG]

    Walter's right.

    I'd vote for Blue Velvet over Chinatown, but Vertigo over Blue Velvet.

    abstain, no Sorry

    Mulholland Dr., (love 'em both but Rebecca gets dragged down a bit by the whole trial/in town sequence. It can't come close to matching what goes on in Manderlay)

    Rear Window (Picnic is outstanding and I've voted for it every time previously, but it's not even close in this matchup)

    Vertigo over Blue Velvet (one of the most heartbreaking decision I made here)

    Mulholland Dr. over Rebecca (I feel better now[​IMG], Hitchcock - 1 / Lynch - 1)

    Blue Velvet- Vertigo is my second favorite Hitchcock film though.

    Sorry, Wrong Number- easy as can be. Maltese is overrated, and Wrong Number is one of the best mystery films there is.

    Mulholland Dr.- Rebecca is amazing, but no contest, as Mulholland is my second fav film of all time.

    Picnic at Hanging Rock- pretty damn tough, as both are major favorites.

    Walter, I think I done screwed up. My apologies, but I guess we'll have to roll with it.

    Edit: Walter is indeed correct - it should have been Chinatown vs. Sorry, Wrong Number. Since I think we can safely assume that Chinatown would have won, I've corrected the mistake. Sorry again. I'm so dumb.

    My votes:

    The Maltese Falcon
    Mulholland Dr.
    Picnic at Hanging Rock



    The Maltese Falcon wins 6 - 2.
    Mulholland Dr. wins 8 - 3.
    Rear Window wins 6 - 4.


    The Final Four


    Round 5 - Bracket 1

    Chinatown vs. Rear Window


    Round 5 - Bracket 2

    The Maltese Falcon vs. Mulholland Dr.



    Edit: brackets corrected.

    and I would have voted for Chinatown over Sorry, Wrong Number, though Sorry Wrong Number is still a great movie.
