Okay, so. Round three is here and now that the greatest movies of all time have been eliminated maybe we can settle in and accomplish something. This round we have a barn burner between Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, a matchup between Anne of Green Gables and Mary Poppins, and more Muppets, and much more.
So get to it: scroll down, vote, argue, mourn, celebrate. The bracket carries on!

I think I’m going to have to round up more voters who think like me.
I don’t understand how Hunt for Red October got beat out. It was such a close adaptation to the book and in my top 10 of all time movies. It was well acted and had a great cast. I was truly disappointed with the second movie which bore a resemblance to the book only in the title bring the same.
Of course, it’s not a love story or a book one reads as a child so maybe that has something to do with it. 🤷🏻♀️
This is quite an eye opening and puzzling contest. I really want to go and watch all these movies as they appear in the bracket against each other and see what I think. I think it would be surreal considering the pairings.
