March Movie Madness: The New Rules

As I said before, this year's March Movie Madness is going to be a competition of the greatest comedies of all time. But unlike last year, I'm not going to be the one determining which movies defeat which.

You are.

I will, as I did last year, determine the initial seedings and match-ups. But from there, the wins and losses will be based on your answers. Quite simply, the movies that get the most votes move on. So if, for instance, Life of Brian is up against Raising Arizona, and we have 19 participants, and 13 of them choose Life of Brian, then Life of Brian moves on to the next round.

No, I haven't done the seedings yet, so I have no idea if those two movies will actually be paired up.

That's the basic gist of it. I'll post official rules & regs when it gets closer to tipoff.

It's only three weeks away!

There Will Be Blood

Every time I see Daniel Day Lewis act, my opinion of all other actors lowers a bit. He is easily the best actor of the past 20 years. No one else even comes close! The minute he comes on screen, he is the character, and I, as the viewer, have no recollection of him having ever been any other character in any other movie. Ridiculous.
