This is the first round of voting. I will post the first 16 matches today and the rest in a day or two. Just pick your favorite for each match up. Here is the full bracket

I will embed some youtube clips, if they dont work for you do a quick search of the theme if you need to hear it, it is not that hard. Plus most of these you should know by heart. Here we go:

Match 1:  Star Wars vs Naked Gun

  vs

Match 2: Cape Fear vs Pink Panther

vs

Match 3: Batman vs The Dark Knight

vs

Match 4: Terminator vs Magnificent Seven

vs

Awesome Grinning

Match 1: Star Wars
Match 2: Pink Panther
Match 3: Batman
Match 4: Terminator

I want so badly to vote against Star Wars, especially with Naked Gun being a big band style song, but I can't.  I also wanted Cape Horn to be a dark horse, but how can you vote against Pink Panther?  Old school Batman is rockin.  And Terminator is Terminator.

  1. Star Wars.  Easy one even though I love Naked Gun
  2. Pink Panther
  3. Dark Knight.  This one is tough, I love the original Batman theme, to me it is the Batman theme but something about TDK, its so powerful, I had to pick it.
  4. Terminator
  5. Back to the Future. Easy one
  6. Exorcist. Can these two be any more different, lol.
  7. Stargate. Gone with the wind is epic, iconic, majestic... screw it I love Stargate.
  8. Dragonheart. Yes Casablanca is a classic but listen to that amazing score to Dragonheart! WTF, how did that movie get that score. We need a new thread on movies that dont deserve their epic theme.

These are ones I don't know well

Match 5: Back to the Future, just because I don't like Forrest Gump
Match 6: ARRRGHHH this is an unfair matchup.  I have to go with the Exorcist.  Too iconic.
Match 7: Gone with the Wind
Match 8: Dragonheart

Okay Dragonheart.  I've never even seen this movie yet I know the score by heart.  What's the deal?  I guess it's just used for a lot of stuff.  I also thought I might be thinking of the Angels in the Outfield theme, which turns out to be by the same composer, Randy Edelman.

Yeah that theme is used everywhere. Its crazy cause I bet almost everyone has no clue where it came from.

9. Lily Was Here - can't beat a good saxophone
10. The Bodyguard - Beetlejuice was always stupid
11. Superman - Here's a REAL theme song
12. Chariots of Fire - this may be my sentimental favourite to win.  No other captures the scene any better.
13. Psycho - I don't like either of these
14. Bruce Lee - meh
15. LOTR - THIS IS A STUPID QUESTION
16. The Good the Bad and the Ugly - Despite liking the rockin' accordion, I'll go with the classic

8 Casablanca

9 Godfather

10 Bodyguard

11 Superman

12 Chariots of Fire

13 Psycho

14 Close encounters

15 LOTR

16 Good bad and ugly

You need to wait for people to vote on the first few matches before adding more man. Just scrolling up and down for the list is messing with my eyes.

Ugh, Amelie, I thought I would enjoy that movie and left feeling like it was a waste of time.

Just list them. I cant see your votes.  Next time I will create a match list that you can copy paste and bold for your choices.
