Onto round 3. I just want to reiterate a rule I made up for the last round. Please vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either movie, just pick the lesser of two evils.

As we move along the choices get harder and harder.

Can Jaws take a bite out of Citizen Kane?

Will the Mockingbird break through the Rear Window or just break it's neck?

Can the Godfather withstand the Wrath of some Grapes?

Will the Wizard have enough brains, heart and courage when facing Laurence of Arabia?

Sorry couldn't think of any witty statements for the North. Feel free to add any you can think of.

Will the Raging Bull collapse before the Bridge over the River Kwai?

Can Star Wars "Force" it's way past the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life?

Well, it doesn't get any easier as we go along.  I'm going to hate the next round even more as I fear my top 2 will face off against each other in the semis.

Again Nice Job Section.
