RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS ROUND 2 HEAT 4
« on: November 23, 2006, 07:41:22 PM »
This is Round two of the Rifftrax Playoffs.  I'm using this set-up:

(W= winner of round 1 heat, R=1st runner up of round 1 heat)

Heat 1 = W1 vs R6
Heat 2 = W2 vs R5
Heat 3 = W3 vs R4
Heat 4 = W4 vs R3
Heat 5 = W5 vs R2
Heat 6 = W6 vs R1

The poll will run until Wednesday Nov 29th.

Some Spielberg blockbusters dukin' it out.  Vote!

What happened to Troll 2?  It finished in a tie with Jurassic Park for second place in it's heat.

At the very least there should have been a run-off between those two films.

If you look at the thread carefully, you'll see that I had accidentally voted for What Lies Beneath instead of Jurassic Park:

So it won by one vote.  Sorry.

I stand corrected.  See this is why I didn't want to post the second round.  I would have had a runoff or a three way for this heat, not noticing the changed vote.

To me, this heat is the hardest one to vote for. I think both of these movies would be excellent and I really do enjoy (and own) both films.  I choose JP though.

SEE? Every votes counts! Even if your chad was hanging...
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.

Yep, this was a toughie. I think Jurassic Park would just prove more fun  :)

I picked Temple of Doom.  ToD is by far the worst movie in the Indy trilogy, and a disappointing movie in its own right.  Jurassic Park is a good movie, but I'd have to buy it.  Commerce wins out!  :)

Ooh neck and neck...

Also went with Temple Of Doom, strangely enough for the same reason my fellow Brit, mrbasehart did in the fact of already owning it

No DVD shall escape their sight
Let those who tremble in bad movies light,
Beware the power, Rifftrax's might!

Well I ain't voting for ethier of these. Jurassic Park was one of the films that inspired me to become a filmmaker and I like all the Indy films.

I'd like to see both, but Indy for sure because it is one of my favs.

You make it sound like riffing a film is a bad thing.  To me, riffing a good movie is a celebration of that film.  I love both of these films, and would love to see either one of them riffed apart at the seams.  It would only make me love the films more.

Well, nertz to you.

I like Temple of Doom, but I voted for it because it's goofy enough to merit a riffing.
