With pretty much all the good ideas for tournaments used at least 3 times over, I haven't been able to come up with much as a follow-up to my American Renaissance tournament which will be finished by Friday. The ideas I have come up with are all problematic for one reason or another so I'm seeking comments for ways to improve them or if these suck, something else we can do. 1. Ye Olde 2003 Best Film Tourament. No one has done one of these yet but I'm reluctant to do so as this year would seem to be a no win situation, at least from my POV. Either it would simply serve as a coronation for Return of the King, a waste of time for the person running it (if that person is me anyway) OR ROTK would be beaten 2-0 by some "obscure" film and then there would be a firestorm of controversy and ill will. 2. The Complete Criterion Collection Tournament. Or 256 titles anyway. The problem I see here is that many of the titles in question would muster a ton of abstains, maybe 1 or 2 votes, and a major loss of interest in the tournament. Yes, I could use a smaller set of the collection, but that's been done before. I could use Jim's method of just dumping anything that doesn't generate at least 3 votes, but that makes the brackets messier and much harder to keep track of. 3. The Brook's Criterion Collection Tournament. I have around 64 titles so this could work. Or I could choose even more titles from the rest of my stuff. Problems are again some obscurity, and that I'm really grasping at straws and can only come up with this lame idea to have a tournament for the sake of having a tournament. This is admittedly grim. These are panicked ideas generated by the thought of losing my best daily time waster - Polls. Have we past the saturation point? Are people even interested in tournaments anymore?
