Today's action is a doubleheader, partly because each of these match-ups on their own are underwhelming, and partly because it's a weekend and I'm spending time with family. So take a peak at the contests below and then click on the link for each to vote.

"Not Quite" genre: (4) When Harry Met Sally vs. (5) Gremlins

A classic 80s rom-com against a classic 80s action/fantasy flick. WHMS is Billy Crystal at his best, plus you've got Meathead directing, and Meg Ryan's fake orgasm scene (above) is still a pop culture reference - "I'll have what she's having." - a quarter century later. Gremlins had every kid wanting a furry little animal we could feed after midnight just so we could see how it would destroy the place. Or, depending on your age, wanting Phoebe Cates all over again, just after your post-Fast Times Ridgemont had subsided. Vote here.

The other matchup in tonight's doubleheader...

The Classics genre: (4) A Christmas Carol (1951) vs. (5) A Muppet Christmas Carol

Honestly, this one just comes down to whether you prefer Jim Henson's Muppets or a classically trained, British Shakespearean stage actor delivering you the miserly Scrooge, Bob Cratchit & Tiny Tim, three ghosts, and it's timeless lesson. Vote here.
