Hello, readers! Another Thursday is upon us, and that means we're getting down to the final rounds of our fan-driven, reader-chosen challenge and giveaway: YOU DECIDE: The Best Movie of 2015! Last week saw us start with the original 32 movies and see them cut down to 16, and this week we pared it down to the last 8.
And here we are - the Final Four!
Once again, I chose the winners of Round 3 from the numbers as they stood at 9 a.m. PST this morning. But if you'd like to see each round, here you go:

And don't forget: Comment on this article because we'll be choosing one fan at random to send our hand-picked selection of the best Blu-ray/DVDs from the year - and maybe a few other goodies, so make sure to comment for your chance to win!
We're down to four amazing movies, but alas, only two will move on to the final round. Who will it be? This is the toughest round yet - but that's the point! YOU DECIDE!
1. Kingsman: The Secret Service vs. Mad Max: Fury Road
Of all the movies on our list, both [Kingsman: The Secret Service](tag:713143) and [Mad Max: Fury Road](tag:41445) were two of the most visually stunning films of the year, with highly stylized, high energy sequences that took action and transformed it into something closer to art. And both were wildly entertaining from start to finish. But which film elevated its game enough to make it to our final round, and which will be left behind? Vote and decide their fate!
2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens vs. Creed
I have to be honest with you: By now, in the Final Four, it was impossible to match these last movies up well. On the surface, there doesn't seem to be much in common between [Star Wars: Episode VII Ã¢ÂÂ The Force Awakens](tag:711158) and [Creed](tag:1057460). But if you take a look at the basic stories, both of which were long-awaited sequels to beloved franchises, both involve young heroes in Rey and Adonis Creed following in the footsteps of those who came before and learning to embrace their destiny for greatness. Which one gets knocked out? Which one moves on? Cast your vote and choose!
