Choose between Strangelove, Blade Runner, and The Godfather? Three master works, too dear to me, I just don't know how to do it.
I will say, these 5 rounds do contain some of my most-admired, iconic films. It's fun, Level! even if the prospect of voting against one favourite gem for another sparks anxiety.
And I agree with the person who made a call out for a Kurosawa film. At least two of the classic films you've mentioned are based on his. Star Wars is loosely based on The Hidden Fortress, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, upon the character created in Yojimbo. Although for the greatest Kurosawa film, among his great films, for the scope and social significance of it, probably I'd suggest Seven Samurai.
But maybe bringing in foreign films expands the selection too much.
I love talking film...
By the way, I wonder if allowing multiple selections in these polls would work?
