Movie Draft Tournament - Semifinals Complete
« on: February 23, 2009, 01:26:43 PM »
Time for the semi-finals...

Participants

  • axon (1)
  • KnuckleBuckett (5)
  • Dalamar (2)
  • ober (4)
  • charlie (7)
  • Perspective (6)
  • PJYelton (3)

Please only vote for one option in each section. You can vote for yourself.

The poll expires in 3 days. At that time the winners will be matched up against each other in the final round.

I changed this one so you can see the results after you vote since admins and mods can see the tallies anyway.

Perspective and Charlie.  I actually tallied the number of movies I agreed with for each person that time.  Close for both.

Yeah, axon's got a good list, but I prefer a little more variety so I voted for myself. ;)

And Perspective vs PJYelton was really close. I graded all the movies 1-3 and PJ just barely won.

yep - I didn't go for strategy in this draft ;) hopefully it wont bite me in the ass at the end :D

Perspective vs PJ - I used the same grading scheme as before and came up dead even! one movie made all the difference.....but I'll tell you which one after we're done.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

It's not strategy... it's just assuming that I had to watch these movies and only these movies for the rest of my life.

There were quite a few movies I would consider to be much higher quality than some I chose, but I wanted stuff I'd like to watch a lot. Of course, the point of this is that there are no rules to how you approach picking or voting, so I wouldn't be surprised if picking great films is actually a better strategy.

Wow as of right now both races are tied 3-3.  Had to choose Charlie, while axon certainly has a lot of high quality choices they weren't quite movies I'd want to be watching over and over again for the rest of my life.

WTH? Why didn't you vote for yourself?

Anyhoo, I'm surprised I won this easily... axon had a nice list. And I guess there won't be a repeat winner now.
