Battle of the Aughts: Round 4

Sadly, this round's parings don't really inspire any clever titles (Ed Asner vs. Stephen Tobolowsky was considered but seemed like too much of a reach). However, the pairs of directors and, in one case, a much-loved studio that have made it thus far give hope for more cleverness in the future. Unless PT, QT and Pixar are due to get knocked down a peg or two...

Punch-Drunk Love (11)

Mulholland Drive (9)

Up (9)
Memento (7)

Kill Bill vol. 2 (9)
Spirited Away (7)

The Royal Tenenbaums (11)
Pan's Labyrinth (5)

Children of Men (12)
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (3)

WALL*E/There Will Be Blood (tie - 8 each)

Inglourious Basterds (12)
Yi Yi (6)

You see what you did, Steve? Right up there at the top. Sort of creepy how that worked out.

I guess PT, QT and Pixar weren't due for a peg-knocking after all. And I guess Steve knows all.
