In a vacuum I would've used my Batman vote on probably Willy Wonka, but facilitating the start of the DCAU gives it way too many bonus points to vote any other way.

<@Romosome> battle royale isn't even that good

I was already planning to rewatch Battle Royale tomorrow because Giant Bomb recorded a Film and 40s commentary for it, but now I'm going to do so while simultaneously flipping off three dogs.

i just watched Hackers for the first time, for the sole reason that it beat Akira in this poll. that fact alone speaks volumes about me, i know. but i have to say that the experience left me angry. i was angry almost the entire time i watched the film. not just because of the poll, but because ... oh man, i can't even fit my thoughts into less than a thousand words. (i hope the rest of the poll doesn't affect me this way.)

the bottom line for now is that you guys are idiots.
the best kazz around

This is a poll for the nerdiest movie, not the highest quality one. Hackers is high nerd camp. It's a hilarious--sometimes purposefully, mostly accidentally--period piece. And it ties into the time window near when some of us were first getting online. And the limo -> skateboard scene with the briefcase is one of the dumbest, most priceless moments in cinema.

Though I voted for Akira too.

But please, hit us with your hot, unabridged take on Hackers. I'm looking forward to it!

Honestly a little surprised to see T2 out this early; as much as I love Robocop and They Live I figured one of them would be swapped there. Not disappointed, but surprised!

This mix is an interesting collection of movies that I probably wouldn't ever see to the finals but like a lot in general.

But just in case people are thinking about making a wrong dumb choices again, let me remind you that the actress who played child-Mako in Pacific Rim couldn't pronounce Guillermo del Toro so he gave her permission to just call him "Totoro-san", and armed with that knowledge you can now make the right fucking choice.
