So, might as well tell you guys now. I'm going to be on vacation next week, but it won't be a bye week. Instead, you're going to pick one movie from each conference that deserves to be dropped and then select four wildcard replacements. But for now, here's the bracket at present:
Don't forget to vote for the adventure/horror and action movies if you haven't already. Our current lineup came from the following victories in the comedy conference and the grab-bag (but mostly drama, especially now) final conference were as follows, in the order in which they were originally seeded:
|Comedy Conference||Drama, etc. Conference|
|Groundhog Day||Pulp Fiction|
|Dumb & Dumber||The Godfather|
|The Big Lebowski||Boogie Nights|
|Caddyshack||The Shawshank Redemption|
|The Blues Brothers||A Few Good Men|
|Back to the Future||Dazed & Confused|
|Office Space||Almost Famous|
Before you begin voting, you may be interested to learn that...
In the comedy conference, the biggest landslide was Groundhog Day's 305-to-105 (75% to 25%) defeat of Raising Arizona, while the closest match was Dumb & Dumber's tremendously narrow 254-to-249 (50% to 49%) win over O Brother, Where Art Thou? The film with the most votes in the round was Ghostbusters, with 333 votes.
In the final conference, meanwhile, The Godfather's 276-to-57 (82% to 17%) victory over L.A. Confidential was the largest landslide, while the closest vote was between Almost Famous and The Sting. The former film eked out a win over the latter by just 3 votes, 172 to 169 (50% to 49%). The Godfather received the most votes overall, with 276.
Voting now should be interesting. These were two of the most contentious categories, and they had a number of very close votes even in the first round. Comment below if you're so inclined. Voting will close Sept. 30 at midnight EST. OK ramblers, let's get rambling.
