RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS HEAT 3
« on: November 18, 2006, 03:50:04 AM »
Heat 3 of six.

Some stiff competition in this one.

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.

this one was a tough one for me.....

Troll 2 vs. Batman and Robin

In the end, I went with Troll 2 because of all movies, I want to see what Mike will be able to do with it.

As far as Jurassic Park......Jurassic Park : The Lost World is a much better choice.  If you notice, David Knoepp, the screenwriter, is credited with being on screen eaten by the T-Rex outside of Blockbuster when it is loose in San Diego.  Fitting punishment, I'd say.  (OK, that joke came from agonybooth.com , busted, LOL)

My vote goes for Troll 2. It must be done. Batman & Robin is again kind of a given I would like some lesser known films to get more attention in the fan votes.

Play by play  i.e. shameless way to keep them bumped to the top :)

Looks like the Batmobile is leaving the dinosaurs in the dust, somewhere in Nilbog...

good thing troll two was matched up against B&R or else I'd be a little frightened.

Well I think most of you probably knew I was going to vote for What Lies Beneath. I know none of you out there share my hatred for it, but I still had to give it my vote.
Aaahh! This movie just throws you violently into the next scene!

Gotta go with Batman and Robin.  Can't go with Troll 2 on a count that I haven't seen it. Plus, it would be hard to obtain a copy without having to order it off the internet.  I've seen Batman and Robin, and it still gives me nightmares. I still can't believe I wasted money on that piece of crap.  Of course, I was only a child.





Stop laughing at me!!! I was only a child! I didn't know! I DIDN'T KNOW!!!!!!!

OOPS!  I clicked the wrong movie...I wanted to vote for Jurassic Park, but selected the one above it, What Lies Beneath.

JohnnyFrag, o wise poll-starter, can you override and change my vote?
