The Most Watchable Movie Bracket, Round Two: Action and Adventure.

New, 69 comments

Some movies are good. Others are watchable. Herein, the quest to find the most watchable of them all.

When we left off, y'all were voting to narrow down the field of watchable movies from 64 to 32. Now, we're going to vote to whittle these down to a Sweet 16. Next week, you may find some shakeups before we reach an Elite 8. Be prepared. In the meantime, the bracket, as it currently stands:


...which was the result of the following victories, in the order in which they were originally seeded, in the adventure/horror Sam Raimi Conference and the action Tony Scott Memorial Conference:

Sam Raimi Conference Tony Scott Conference
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Die Hard
Jurassic Park Terminator 2
Raiders of the Lost Ark Con Air
Jaws The Rock
The Empire Strikes Back The Fifth Element
Star Wars The Bourne Identity
The Fugitive Road House
The Princess Bride Gladiator

A few things to note before voting begins:

In the Sam Raimi Conference, the biggest landslide was The Empire Strikes Back's 500-to-55 (90% to 10%) defeat of The Thing, while the closest match was The Fugitive's narrow 309-to-284 (52% to 48%) win over Tombstone. The film with the most votes in the round was The Princess Bride, with 566 votes.

In the Tony Scott Memorial Conference, meanwhile, Terminator 2's 341-to-75 (82% to 18%) victory over Crank was the largest landslide, while the closest vote was between The Fifth Element and Starship Troopers. The former film beat the latter 215 to 200 (52% to 48%). Die Hard received the most votes overall, with 394.

Now, without any further ado, let's get to voting. Comment below if you're so inclined. Voting will close Sept. 29 at midnight EST. Start start start start start
