    Movie Madness is an event pitting 64 films against each other in a tournament where only one will triumph (to find out more, click here).
    Who will progress to the next round? You decide.

    The film that announced Russell Crowe as a genuine movie A-lister and saw the departure of the great Oliver Reed (who died during filming), Gladiator is a multi-Oscar winning, full-blooded, sword and sandals epic story of love, treachery, corruption and revenge. Crowe is outstanding in the title role, as is Joaquin Phoenix as his nemesis, and Rome and the Colosseum have never looked grander than in this modern classic.

    North by Northwest (1959)
    A serious case of mistaken identity leads to a hair-raising cross-country chase and a stunning finale atop Mount Rushmore. With just the right balance of action, intrigue and romance, Cary Grant in the lead and lashings of typical Hitchcock suspense, North by Northwest is a true classic.

    Gladiator - over-rated ahistorical show-off.

    NbyNW - my favourite Hitchcock, from the opening titles to the cliff, erm, face-hanging end. One of the best 'rides' ever.

    Like North by Northwest but there are probably 5-8 Hitchcock's I prefer over it. And Gladiator's great. So Gladiator.
