Happening now! Filmspotting Poll. E.T. vs. Blade Runner Death Match. The winner will live on, all copies of the loser will cease to exist. Which will you choose?

Me? I choose E.T. I watched Blade Runner in college and found it to be a snoozer. But E.T. I remember quite well. Blade Runner is going to win that poll, though. It's already at 66%

I would choose Blade Runner because I think, when watched with a critical eye, E.T. isn't a very good film. But I'm a little surprised that the nostalgia factor isn't winning that poll for E.T.
