The Millennial Movie Challenge: Sweet 16 Roundup

Sweet 16 Results

(NOTE: Due to technical difficulties, voting for the Elite 8 will be postponed until tomorrow)

Seriously?  First Denzel and now Will Ferrell?  WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!??!?!

Three #1s went down yesterday.  We’re calling it the 13th Warrior Massacre.  (In case you didn’t know/remember, The 13th Warrior was an Antonio Banderas movie in 1999 that is regarded as a top 5 box office bomb, losing over $100m.  Then again, we’re not surprised you never heard of this movie, hence bomb).

And it didn’t come without some last minute pain either.  It took us an overtime round of voting for the final 10-9 Knocked Up victory over Old School.  Game.  Set.  and Earmuffs.  The only silver lining: this might invariably settle the Judd Apatow vs. Todd Phillips debate…unless we get the Hangover into the ring to tag team WWE style and snatch away the belt!

So I won’t even waste my time with 800 words on the beauty of the Frank the Tank opus.  The movie bookended the decade by being Old School’s Teddy Roosevelt to The Hangover’s FDR.  We’ve got Will Farrell becoming post-SNL Will Farrell.  Vince Vaughn becoming post-Swingers Vince Vaughn.  Elisha Cuthbert at the height of her oh so great Canadian powers.  And Luke Wilson.

Half-Asian Guy’s Super Bowl XLVIII Bet Slip

Russell Wilson

A word to the wise (and while we’re at it, the un-wise), please feel free to take every single opposite bet here and actually make money.  Remember, back in August I was happily sitting on an Atlanta Falcons SB victory prediction.  Oh how the fallen have fallen…

Seattle Seahawks to win – Moneyline +110

The Millennial Movie Challenge: Round 2 Roundup

Denzel

Round 2 Results!

(NOTE: If you want to skip right to the voting, just scroll down.  We won’t judge.  We’ll just egg your house later)

We lost Denzel.

I don’t know how or why, but we lost him.  And to pre-Bourne Matt Damon and pre-Argo Ben Affleck.  By a score of 9-4, Training Day got bum rushed by Good Will Hunting, but the perennial question “The Streets of Compton or the Streets of Southie?” will rage on.

I was wrong.  Put it on the record.  Yesterday Austin Powers was nominated for the “Blockbuster Video” category of movie that doesn’t hold up well.  During its run from 1997-2002, its hard to underestimate the massive cultural impact the Austin Powers franchise made.  Things to think about with bizzaro James Bond:
