    The Running Man — really? That’s one of my favorite Arnie movies.

      I agree. There are quite a few really good movies here that missed the cut.

      Oh and some not so good movies that were guilty pleasures as well.

        Some surprising choices getting knocked out, that’s for sure. I can kind of see how some of them might not be to everyone’s taste, but still – definitely scratching my head over a few of them. Going to be interesting to see the complete lists of those that made the cut and those that didn’t…

        • When week 42 is over and we have the ultimate winner, I’ll make the complete voting history public. I’m quite surprised at where a lot of these titles are landing. Also, of all the suggestions I’ve seen for which title will take the #1 spot, one hasn’t been voted on yet (Serenity is in week 24) and none of the rest made the top ten. I’ll be carefully watching the weekly voting to announce statistical upsets after the statistical favorites are eliminated.
