Alex, echoing TheMovieSmith's statement! Adding a why?
These movies have absolutely no connection to each other.
What do you like better Dumbo (1941) or The Godfather (2006) (Video Game)
Now compare "Drive" to Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000) and you have the beginnings of a poll.
Re-think your poll and make additions

They have strong connections. Both were directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, and both star Ryan Gosling as a taciturn character who breaks into brief outbursts of violence. Both movies are slow, stylized, quite violent at times, without mich dialogue, and they feature Cliff Martinez‘ music.

Hi Alex (AKA jonesama-429-85018),

Thank you for your poll suggestion. Thank you also for providing a properly functioning discussion link in your list.

1. Once someone responds to your post, only an admin can edit your post.

2. Your poll is a Face-Off poll. IMDb prefers that film titles are enclosed in single quotes and "vs." includes a period. Please edit the title of your list (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls029471721/) from:
Drive vs Only God Forgives

To:
Face-Off: 'Drive' vs. 'Only God Forgives'

3. At first glance, it's not clear why you are comparing these two films. It would help to change your question from:
Which of these films do you prefer?

To:
Which of these Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling film collaborations do you prefer?

Alex,

Thank you for updating the list title and question. I updated the title of this thread and your first post accordingly.

You've done a good job on your first poll. If you have any questions regarding creating, suggesting and updating polls, you may ask them in this thread.

Face-Off polls are a good way of learning the conventions of creating polls, since they require a minimum investment of time for the author.

If you have not already done so, I recommend reading:

Drive is somewhere in my top ten films of 2011.  Only God Forgives isn't terrible but it doesn't compare to the former.
