    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). We have already taken the initial 64 films and got 8 group winners and 8 group runners up.

    Now the battle for the overall title begins.

    Who will progress to the next round? You decide.

    The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
    Perhaps the most famous cinematic disappointment ever, The Shawshank Redemption made up for it's poor box office with a second wind on home release based almost solely on word of mouth, catapulting it to the top of many people's film lists. Spanning decades, the film looks at life in prison and a blossoming friendship between the prison's fixer and a man convinced of his own innocence.


    It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
    As much of a Christmas staple as the Great Escape, It's A Wonderful Life stars James Stewart as a man poised to commit suicide on Christmas Eve but is interrupted by a guardian angel who shows him all the positive effects his life has had. One of the biggest initial flops on the list and a turning point in Frank Capra's career away from the studio darling he once was, the film has later gone on to be widely acknowledged as a classic.

    Exactly, the one we expect to cruise to the final versus the one we're surprised got this far.
