It's time for the second round of our Maryland Film/TV Showdown. While there weren't many surprises, a few underdogs pulled ahead to battle it out for the best of Baltimore. In case you missed the original 64, here's the first round, with descriptions of the "teams." Voting for this round ends Tuesday.
The Clarice Starling Region
Best of Major Maryland-Based Films
(1) Silence of the Lambs vs. (8) Step Up
Anthony Hopkins vs. Channing Tatum is a matchup we're excited to see. "The Silence of the Lambs" won over "Red Dragon." The first movie in the "Step Up" franchise moves on.
(12) The Sum of All Fears vs. (4) Wedding Crashers
With a very narrow margin,"The Sum of All Fears" fans have spoken in an upset over "The Accidental Tourist." This round will reveal if the action thriller knocks out "Wedding Crashers," the clear winner over "He Said, She Said."
(11) Live Free or Die Hard vs. (3) Twelve Monkeys
"He's Just Not That Into You" vs. "Live Free or Die Hard" was a close one, but Baltimoreans chose action over romance. Bruce Willis goes up against himself this time; "Twelve Monkeys" won over "Ladder 49."
(10) Enemy of the State vs. (2) Sleepless in Seattle
In the (technically speaking) largest upset in the region, "Enemy of the State" toppled "First Sunday." Will it beat "Sleepless in Seattle" by such a large margin? The latter knocked out "The Invasion."
