RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS HEAT 1
« on: November 18, 2006, 03:45:33 AM »
Ok heat one (of 6) of the First Rifftrax Playoffs. I ended up using 2 other movies from the old playoffs poll , one to make an nice even number and one because I had a mistake and listed a movie twice in my generator.
Pairings were randomized by a sequence generator, so some heats are more competitive than others, but I think was the fair way to do it. Besides, the non-winners this time can just be entered into the next playoffs.

Please vote, campaign, post yard signs whatever. Election day ends on Thanksgiving, and the winners will be advanced into the next round.








Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

I was under the impression that we were going to have straight up match-ups and bracketing ala the NCAA basketball tourney.

I guess this way would be a bit easier.

Vote Billy Jack!  A lot of these other movies seem like the type that they would eventually do anyway, and may even be on the drawing board.  So don't waste your vote on something that may very well be the next Rifftrax anyway!

Had to go with my nomination, Street Fighter...

We need some Van Damme

Plus any movie that actually killed one of it's actors (We miss you and your nuts Raul Julia) deserves to be taken apart
In brightest day, in darkest night
No DVD shall escape their sight
Let those who tremble in bad movies light,
Beware the power, Rifftrax's might!

The heats are the preliminary to bracketed playoffs. 

I voted for Street Fighter, by the way.  A truly awesome bad movie.

How many from each heat advance to the next round?  6 heats doesn't work too well to come up with the right numbers for a tourney bracket (16,32, or 64).

Cast my vote for Armageddon.  Michael Bay deserves to be knocked down a few pegs.  Plus, you get the extra bad acting from Ben Affleck.  Any Affleck movie that isn't directed by Kevin Smith is bound to be terrible.  Just look at Pearl Harbor and Gigli (hope it's spelled right)

What about Good Will Hunting? That was pretty good.
