Got to be Halloween, remembering when John Carpenter did quality films...

I'm a Blade fan - especially seeing Wesley Snipes seriously kick-ass!

Had this been a vote for single movies, Robocop would have got my vote well ahead of the others (never even heard of Vengeance).

But as only the first Robocop is any good and the vote is for series, I have to go with Blade as the best overall.

Antiriad's views above are almost identical to my own.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

Oldboy was good, but not the sort of film I would watch many times. I haven't seen (or heard of) the other two.

Blade was a big "meh", and the second wasn't as good, though I can't remember much about either. Haven't seen the third.

Halloween I and III I liked a lot, but the rest were just "Made for TV" type of films. I probably haven't seen them all.

Robocop is brilliant, and has one of the best robots in cinema history (the ED-209; probably only beaten by the T-800). The sequel wasn't nearly as good, and the third was a joke.

Even so, I voted for Robocop, as I would rather have that one film than any other of the series' mentioned.

I found the same feelings towards which to pick...
Robocop is possibly the better movie, but I can't vote for something that has Robocop 3 attached to it.
Blade is ok, probably the best choice for me when considering all the whole franchise.

I am so disappointed with you all. The Vengeance trilogy is sh1t hot - brutal, edgy, well scripted etc, etc, etc. Three top-quality films and by far the best 'series' in this round. I thoroughly enjoy Robo1, Blade1 and Halloweens 'Season of the Witch' but those are stand-alone films within the franchises.

Come on folks. Vote for top quality through and through. :D

I am resigned to Vengeance going out at the first hurdle. Such a shame.

Looks like this one is more clear cut, but Vengeance does have a chance if gets a few extra votes between now and 3.30
