Welcome to yet another head to head tourney.
Yet, this will be like no other head tourney. Well, I guess it will. But, we are featuring movies that we find ourselves watching over and over again. These are not our favorites (Although many of our faves did make the cut), but movies that we just can't seem to deny. Many of these are "cable pleasures" that whenever on, we end up watching.

And to make things a little more fun, we will be adding either a favorite quote, or a quote we use often from each movie.

So without further ado, let the snickering and laughing begin.



ROUND 1, BRACKET 1

L.A. Confidential

I admire you as a policeman, particularly your adherence to violence as a necessary adjunct to the job.

vs

The Boondock Saints

We're sort of like 7-11. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

I have to abstain too. I LOVE L.A. Confidential but have yet to see Boondock Saints. It's one of those that, I actually own the DVD, but haven't watched yet.
Favorite film of 2008 (so far): The Fall

Favorite films of 2007: There Will Be Blood, Across The Universe, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Black Snake Moan

I think someone should start a tourney where the goal is never to have more than one vote in any bracket.

Of course, several seem to be already trying that.

Well after a flurry of votes and a heated back and forth battle for the ages, L.A. Confidential comes out with the big overtime victory.

And although it was not my pick, I highly recommend The Boondock Saints. It's worth the time.

ROUND 1, BRACKET 2

Saving Private Ryan

He better be worth it. He better go home and cure a disease, or invent a longer lasting light bulb.

vs

A Few Good Men

You see Danny, I can deal with the bullets, and the bombs, and the blood. I don't want money, and I don't want medals. What I do want is for you to stand there in that faggoty white uniform and with your Harvard mouth extend me some fucking courtesy. You gotta ask me nicely.

A Few Good Men - very tough decision, but most people prefer SPR, so that makes me automatically like A Few Good Men more Posted Image

I'll go with A Few Good Men because it has 17 year old, large breasted women in it.



Oh, wait, no it doesn't. I'll still vote that way.

Let's see: my favorite war film, or my favorite courtroom drama?

A Few Good Men (the acting decides it)
"It is not, and never should be, the policy of the law to require the protection of the foolhardy or reckless few and therefore to deprive, or interfere with, the enjoyment by the remainder of society of the liberties and amenities to which they are rightly entitled." -unknown
