March Movie Madness: Fin
CHAMPION: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
A few facts here first: Over 10,000 votes were cast since the bracket voting began on March 6th. Thank you all so much for your participation here; we may have set up the framework, but the whole idea relies on the support of our fans and readers and listeners, so bravo to you all for that.
Even with such a great turnout, some of the matchups were extremely close. Four matchups were decided by just one vote:
- #11 No Country for Old Men defeats #6 Lord of the Rings: Return of the King by 1 vote
- #11 Full Metal Jacket defeats #6 E.T.: Extra-Terrestrial by 1 vote
- #11 Spotlight defeats #14 12 Years a Slave by 1 vote
- #2 Saving Private Ryan defeats #3 Toy Story by 1 vote
If anything this just shows how difficult it is to pick between your favorite movies, but it all worked out in the end!
Max and I also have big plans for more writing on the blog; movie reviews of classic films and the newest releases, editorials about the industry, and more.
So there is no reason for you to leave now, the fun has only begun. Remember to follow us on Facebook to see all of our content in your news feed. No fake news here!
