    From the creators of Brook's Criterion Collection Tournament, we bring you a tournament based on the Columbia/Tri-Star HV/Sony Pictures Classics DVD's in my collection.

    Since this amounts to 37 movies, we'll have some wild card wackiness.

    Advanced To 2nd Round

    Monty Python And The Holy Grail
    In The Company Of Men
    On The Waterfront
    Talk To Her
    The Seventh Voyage Of Sinbad
    Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
    Bridge On The River Kwai

    How unusual for me to vote like this in a Brook tourney. [​IMG]

    Triple Abstain

    I was just getting ready to start a rip-off of Brook's earlier tourney (my own Criterion), but since you've started this one, I guess I won't.

    Fear not George, there should be plenty for you to vote on. I know you've seen more than half of the movies I have here.

    Don't let my tournament get in the way of yours.

    Godzilla 2000 advances 4-1 including my vote. Dark Crystal is a movie I loved as a kid, bought the DVD and it hasn't aged well. I'd have gotten rid of it but figured I'd hang on to it and see if my kids like it.

    Desperado advances 4-2, my vote is for El Mariachi

    The Red Violin advances 3-0 including my vote, though Sunshine State is very good as well.

    Round 1 - Wild Card

    Godzilla 2000
    vs.
    Desperado
    vs.
    The Red Violin

    Round 1 (so George doesn't feel left out)

    His Girl Friday
    vs.
    Monty Python and The Holy Grail
