vs.

Movie 9: Strategy Above the Depths

The current bracket:

"The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit, and all his thoughts will perish. The uneasy consciousness, which in this obscure corner has for a brief space broken the contented silence of the universe, will be at rest. Matter will know itself no longer. 'Imperishable monuments' and 'immortal deeds,' death itself, and love stronger than death, will be as though they had never been."

My vote's for Strategy Above the Depths.  A good mystery, lots of suspense and Kogoro absolutely shines in it.

Even though I do like Kaitou Kid, Strategy Above the Depths is simply better in my opinion

Strategy Above the Depths. Both are mediocre, but a mediocre movie that focuses on Kogoro>>>>a mediocre movie that focuses on Kid. Incidentally, I suspect that most people will have exactly the opposite opinion and that "Strategy" will be defeated handily.

I'll go with Strategy. While both were decent, it was overall-ly more enjoyable, while movie 8 had a few scenes that I liked.

Strategy above the depths had an awesome soundtrack and it had Kogoro.

Could this be the first time that we have two contestants one vote away with >10 votes? I doubt it will last (though this probably will be the closest of the round one matchups by a bit), but it is a nice respite from 90-10, 81-19, etc;.

aaaagh.

I forgot to make a date. If someone with mod powers could make the poll have a 5 day limit that would be nice, otherwise I'll make a new one.

edit: or I can just set one. As of now, 5 days from the OP is the time limit.

Uh...Magician of the Silver Sky, I guess. I meant to vote for the other one, but I clicked the wrong option and it looks like I can't change my vote.

Oh, well. I didn't feel that strongly about it, anyway.  :P

Movie 8 just because the ending was better, but the mysteries of both were lacking.

I knew you will vote against movie 8  :'(

I loved it and my reasons are:

movie 8 spoiler for there are some people who have not watched it yet
[spoiler]1- Kid teasing Conan and putting him in a difficult situation, at least it made it fun to watch
2- and please do not tell me it was the plane thing, come on we see worse in Hollywood, so why we can not accept it in DC  ;)
3- Ran's reaction has reminded me of the restaurant scene, when Conan thought he will give her courage by talking to her, she behaved unexpectedly and rebelled[/spoiler]
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.
