    Um, probably wouldn't be a good idea. I'd end up in my own tourney! [​IMG]

    Don't know which was the best, but I am pretty sure that Hard Science-fiction Movies was the most controversial! [​IMG]

    Funniest Steve Christou Post Tournament--So many to choose from, but it would be a good tourney.

    Dude! The Keanu Reeves Movie Tournament--Uh, in a word....NO

    The Fat Lady Sings! An Opera Tournament--Opera kicks ass!

    Creative Ways to Spell "Chmiel" Tournament--This one time I misspelled my own name. I would rule in this one.

    My Emmanuelle Beart Fantasies - The Tournament--I'm subjected to this one at work everyday.

    Alright, I'll vote.
    Best Criterion DVD
    Bad SF! (only because I disagree so strongly with the concept of hard sci-fi [​IMG])
    abstain on the others.
    Question of the Day:
    The Fat Lady Sings! An Opera Tournament
    He's Outta Here! The Banned HTF Member Tournament - Which ex-HTF member made the most inglorious exit?
    Most Bone-headed DVD Release Tournament - Can you say pan & scan Willy Wonka?
    Those three would all be good [​IMG]
    Although you might try Bugs Bunny sings: Opera that people will recognize (including Barber of Seville from Bugs and Carmen from Gilligan's Island's musical version of Hamlet)

    Scott, you're welcome to Dude! The Keanu Reeves Movie Tournament and He's Outta Here! The Banned HTF Member Tournament! You can take the risk on that last one. [​IMG]
    Here's some real suggestions that you're welcome to:
    Best Movie Dog - This one might actually be fun. Lassie, Benji, Shiloh, Beethoven, etc. You could expand it to include TV shows.
    Irish Movies Tournament
    Road Movies Tournament
    -------------------
    Anyone else want to vote on the current brackets?

    History and the Movies (the "scoring" process in the Criterion tourney just didn't work)

    Hard SF (because I'd only seen about 3 movies in the "bad sf" tourney)
