    There are several difficult matchups this time around. Some because both are very good movies... and at least one with two very bad movies (neither of which I can vote for in good conscience).

    Which must be how many people feel about the 2016 election. Hey-o!

    Heh, and now you've got me guessing which bad movie match up you're referring to, Basileus. I'm guessing the bracket number is somewhere in the 11-16 range? ;-)

    A lot of people really liked at least one of them, so I fear of reprisal from the unwashed masses.

    But if you mean out of those 16 matchups in rounds 2-5 and 2-6, then yes, its somewhere in that range... :)

    South Park and DRC was tough. So was Bill & Ted vs. Ash.

    I'm not liking the trend so far on South Park vs. GalaxyQuest...

    Come on people, vote GalaxyQuest - its the best Star Trek movie ever made! Plus, we owe it to Alan Rickman! If it loses I'm gonna set off the Omega 13...

    I Screwed Up. On quiz 4-1, question #8 was supposed to be Shaun of the Dead versus Anchorman, but I mistakenly put Borat in there.

    IF YOU HAVE ALREADY ANSWERED THIS QUIZ, YOU MAY GO IN AND CHANGE YOUR ANSWERS.

    DAMMIT. I'd been doing so well, too.

    Thanks Basileus. Fixed.

    I didn't have as much time to do the up-front work with this one and I rushed it out. :-P

    There's also (still) a Borat option on the last question, too. Really not sure how that happened, but I can't remove it now votes have been placed.
