The Simpsons Movie Advances...

I have to say that the latest victory in our battle of the summer movies turned out to be quite surprising to me. In our sixth head-to-head contest of the tournament The Simpsons Movie triumphed over Live Free or Die Hard in a vote of 9 to 6. I have to say, I liked both of these movies, but The Simpsons over John McClane? C'mon... McClane shot the bad guy through his own shoulder! But, as any good reporter knows, it's my job to report the story, not comment on it. So, now that The Simpsons Movie has won out, it moves on to the quarter finals to face off against this summer's juggernaut, Transformers. That should be an interesting match up.

The next vote will be between Stardust and Ocean's 13. Stardust is a movie based on the graphic novel by Neil Gaimen. Pretty cool fantasy/fairy tale type of thing. I'll check it out today or Tuesday...

Well, I'd like to say that this is a perfect system, however, as with most things in life, it has its flaws and will get better with time.

I set the bracket halfway through April on projections and release dates set on some website I was on.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Bourne trilogy (although I did quite enjoy Ultimatum) but, in retrospect, I would totally include it if I could do it over.
