Long-Ass Battle Of The Movie Assassins Update

In June, last year, I started this whole running sidebar poll about movie assassins and who would kill whom if they had to. I'm calling the latest poll, which was the closest competition so far. You decided that Jason Bourne is more kick-ass than Leon from The Professional by a vote of 53% to 47%. It was neck and neck for quite a while.

Who knew there were so many Leon fans out there? And I thought The Professional was a heartwarming tale about some French dude and his kid. Maybe I should see it again.

Anyways, Jason Bourne advances and the bracket looks like this:


The next matchup is between Nikita of La Femme Nikita and Beatrix Kiddo of Kill Bill Parts 1 and 2. The question, as always, is this: "If Nikita and Beatrix Kiddo were each given orders to kill each other, who would win?"

So what are you waiting for? Scroll down and vote!

Previous updates in this, the blogging equivalent of a massive public works project,* can be found here, and here.

* Nobody's sure if it's worth the effort, but we've gone too far to call off the damn thing now.

I was going to say that this was stupid, until I read the fine print. In the interest of foolish consistency, I say the Nakita bitch kicks ass.

Hmmm, the polls are currently tied at 11-11. It was 6-6 when I voted.

PS> Shelly, Vince's passing rating was in the high '80's. Also, he has all the intanglibles. Leadership, decision making, ect.
Actually I think Leinhart is the one who will have a little trouble adjusting to the NFL. He doesnt have the natural ability his predecessor Carson Palmer had. He might have trouble adjusting to the speed of the game.
When you have a great O line, a pretty damm good defense, and backs like White and Bush to help you, it tends to make you look like a great QB.
Now he might BE great, but he might also struggle a lot if he goes to a crappy team, (jets)
