  1. The theme is very fitting knowing the smack talking that took place prior to the match. A duel indeed.

  2. I was interested to see that both writers took the Duel thing literally, though both had an interesting spin to deliver. Doesn’t make this decision any easier, though.

  3. Pretty hard choice this week. Action vs Fantasy. Which was deeper? Brophy’s had theme but less deicious violence. Hmm.

  4. I’ll bring the violence for the next time.
