Round 1: Knockout competition (most favorited)

#1

Post by Coryn » August 3rd, 2019, 8:41 am

My beloved friends

Let's start off with some much needed rules to make this a fluent and fair competition for each movie. Here come the bullet points:
[*] 4 movies per day for round 1
[*] A day runs from 00:00 AM until 11:59PM CEST , https://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/cest please check what that means for your timezones. No exceptions sadly will be made here and I'll have to be strict.
[*] No waiting until the last minute to cast your vote, this was a problem we had with some guys who would alter their votes to cause a draw. Of course there will be late votes which is allowed but constantly voting at the last minute should be avoided.
[*] A draw means a tiebreaker will be played after the first round. All movies that ended up in draws will be reshuffled and go up against another movie that ended in a draw.
[*] When voting, please copy all movies that are being voted for that day even if you will only vote for 2 out of 4 of the matchups, all movies should be copied.
[*] Add a number at the front of the first movie or at the back of the second movie to show which one you voted for. Please put either the number or the movie itself in bold to make it easier to see which movie you voted for.
[*] Only vote if you have seen both movies.
[*] Don't forget to have fun !

Voting Starts at 00.00 AM on 040819 which is in approximately 13 hours from now. Good luck!

Highest IMDB Rating: Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Lowest IMDB Rating: Zoolander (2001) & Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) 6.6

Longest Runtime: Gone with the Wind (1939) 238 min.
Shortest runtime: The General (1926) 67 min.


Directors with 5 or more movies in the top 512 favorited movies on ICM:

Steven Spielberg 14

Alfred Hitchcock 9
Martin Scorsese 9

David Fincher 8

At the time of matching the movies, Festen (1998) had 1424 favorites while Transformers (2007) only had 1423 and thus didn't make the list. :party:

Woops, I'm fine with both to be honest. Most checks had a lot of movies that would have gone out of the first round without any competition to it anyway so no problem.

Or did I do most checks anyway? Now I can't remember...... :lol:
:facepalm:

Do you have an iCM list or IMDb list of all the movies in the competition? Then it's easy to check which I did.
And it's also helpful for people to see which movies they might want to watch.

The title says "most checks". I thought we decided to do most favorited, so the urls I sent you were the 512 most favorited titles.
Woops, I'm fine with both to be honest. Most checks had a lot of movies that would have gone out of the first round without any competition to it anyway so no problem.
Or did I do most checks anyway? Now I can't remember...... :lol:
:facepalm:

Do you have an iCM list or IMDb list of all the movies in the competition? Then it's easy to check which I did.
And it's also helpful for people to see which movies they might want to watch.
You did most favorited, I'll post the list soon in OT.

Do you mind to change it? Or is it too late now. I just read back and I actually agreed myself that most checked could be more fun.

Are you sure ? I still have some time this afternoon to do it so time is not the problem but the matchups might not always be interesting.

Right, but that would include lots of movies people haven't seen yet.

EDIT: Or maybe not.

I've seen 2292/5000 and 397/512. A lot more than I expected. Ah well, maybe next time.

I just looked at my unchecked movies sorted by favorites on iCM. The top 10 includes 7 Harry Potter movies. :lol:
Don't think I'll watch those for this tournament.

Do we just choose the first block of 4 movies? And are we going with the list currently in the OP?

If so hopefully I've done this right...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - Jurassic Park (1993)
Die Hard (1988) - The Godfather: Part II (1974)
The Machinist (2004) - The Birds (1963)
Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Now you just add the number in front of the first movie or behind the 2nd movie. Voting only starts tomorrow though.

More like a poll, so it could have gone under "Our lists and projects". A mod might move it, if someone reads it.

:lol: All this reminds me of an old radio quiz-show spoof, It Pays to be Ignorant, where the questions were things like "how much water does a gallon jug hold?" and the contestants would ask "What is the color of the jug?" "Can the jug hold cider?" and away they'd go.

0 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)-Jurassic Park (1993) 1 I don't really feel strongly about either, though.
1 Die Hard (1988)-The Godfather: Part II (1974) 0 The Godfather is vastly overrated. This one is probably my favorite of them, though. Die Hard is part of my Christmas list.
1 The Machinist (2004)-The Birds (1963) 0
0 Hotel Rwanda (2004)-The Maltese Falcon (1941) 1 The best overall match up in this round. The Maltese Falcon, though, is a classic for a reason.

That's a rather unfortunate matchup for Die Hard...

Thank you for saying that about the Godfather. Glad I'm not the only one. And my wife bought me the Die Hard version of the poem "The Night Before Christmas"

I wonder if this will motivate me to change what I view so that I can vote in certain match-ups. Probably not, but we'll see. I'll participate for the moment, though I don't know if I will continue to do so throughout the round.

x Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - Jurassic Park (1993) x
1 Die Hard (1988) - The Godfather: Part II (1974) 0
1 The Machinist (2004) - The Birds (1963) 0
0 Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941) 1

Pretty easy choices, especially since the last two match-ups include a dislike :whistling:

[*] Add a number at the front of the first movie or at the back of the second movie to show which one you voted for.
I thought this meant adding +1 to the existing number. So voting would look like this:

User 1:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - Jurassic Park (1993) 1
1 Die Hard (1988) - The Godfather: Part II (1974)
1 The Machinist (2004) - The Birds (1963)
1 Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941)

User 2:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - Jurassic Park (1993) 2
1 Die Hard (1988) - The Godfather: Part II (1974) 1
2 The Machinist (2004) - The Birds (1963)
1 Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941) 1

User 3:
1 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010) - Jurassic Park (1993) 2
1 Die Hard (1988) - The Godfather: Part II (1974) 2
3 The Machinist (2004) - The Birds (1963)
2 Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941) 1

The way people are voting now, Coryn has to manually collect all the votes afterwards. A LOT of work.

3 Hotel Rwanda (2004) - The Maltese Falcon (1941) 7

Close call between Harry & the dinosaurs, both films aren't that great.
Part II is the worst of the Godfather films, Die Hard is rather amusing.
Really liked The Machinist, held up when I watched it again too. The Birds is where my dislike for classic cinema started.
Didn't care for both films, but Hotel Rwanda was the least terrible.

I found the Machinist to be an amazing film while The Birds was so pointless to me with awful special effects even for its time tbh. Only one I haven't seen is the Maltese Falcon.
