DC Movie Contest: "Crossroad in the Ancient Capital" vs. "Private Eyes' Requiem"

(again, the minor abbrevation in the title is for space)

Last time, "The Phantom of Baker Street" absolutely destroyed, "Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure". This week, in the penultimate contest of Round 1, we have:

Movie 7: Crossroad in the Ancient Capital

vs.

Movie 10: The Private Eyes' Requiem

The current bracket:

I am going with "The Private Eyes' Requiem". I hated both movies with a passion, but something about 7 was insanely odious. It had a nice setting, focused on a likable character and a mystery that was in theory interesting. And yet, the mystery itself proved a sideshow to a lot of disjointed chases and scenic views. The Shinichi/Heiji swap was also terribly predictable and lame, and the ShinRan moment was thrown in without a thought to flow. Also, the whole "a bunch of people die at the very beginning with no buildup" shtick was really annoying, not like a good detective story at all. 10 was terrible, but it was happy about it. 7 was terrible, but yearning to be good.

I'll go with movie 7 for now, nothing insanely noticeable about either, I think its just because I like sword fights.

GAH! Both are so good, it was hard to choose between the two!

But in the end, I chose "Crossroad in the Ancient Capital" because of all the Heiji goodness, and Kudo wearing Heiji's hat.

Movie 7 for me here, but I'm not a big proponent of it. However, it is up against one of the two worst movies (along with 11), so no-brainer here.

I'm for Private Eyes' Requiem.  It was a good mystery (which is what DC should be all about), with suspense and thrills.  For some reason, I seem to like all the ones other ones don't.

NOT Private Eyes' Requiem. I personally found it worse than Jolly Roger and that's saying something.

I actually liked movie 10. If it were not for that horrible villain (Come on, planting bombs on a bunch of kids just to motivate a few detectives to investigate a case for you? They would have done it if you hired them normally, too. Oh sure, it is for the sake of "suspense".  :-\) and basically parking half of the cast in that amusement park (At least they got their own mini-mystery). Otherwise the movie was good.

Movie 7 was just... bad. Way to much Heiji, a silly and unnecessary back-transformation and the mystery itself was weak as well. Even Jolly Roger was better than that movie - aside from the ridiculous escape it was at least fun.

7 for me. movie 10 had too much of a mystery, it felt like a DC special like ep. 304, to me it did not have a movie feel. In short I like the movies with more about the personal lives of the characters.
Every time I want to give up on DC, it manages to bring me back, it brings me back feelings I know that I will never ever feel or live again.
