    Sweet, we're posting now.





    Conan The Barbarian

    Abstain

    Legolas
    ? I'll freely admit that I haven't actually seen Pan's yet, so there may be some bias here. Still, forgetting its Bloom, Legolas was cool.

    Tara - I voted for her, I might as well make sure she gets by at least the first round. Thankfully, her competition isn't such that I won't be as cheesed off if she doesn't go on.

    Usagi - In a different bracket, I'd think she has more of a chance. Unfortunately, I only know one person whose likely to vote for her, and even then I'm not likely to believe he will. So this might end up being a long shot, which makes me wish once again that I nominated her for the Sci-Fi tourney. Ah, well. If she doesn't go on, we got six other Soldiers to get through (even though she's more popular than they are.)

    Legolas - I never saw the other movie, so this is more a vote for the one I know than anything else.

    Thulsa Doom - Same reason as above, though I never saw the movie. There's no way in hell I'm gonna vote for a Digimon creature, though.

    Thulsa Doom


    EDIT: Why does Skeletor have two entries? Is TMP that much different than the cartoon? :confused:

    Yes. For one, the cartoon, while cheap, was good. The movie...well, it's enjoyable, but really only in the right frame of mind.

    And of course, Skeletor's portrayed quite differently in both.

    abstain

    I wouldn't mind seeing Ah-nuld progressing. :) Legolas, also. The others, I really have no preference so far.

    Quite different. The film had added a flair of Star Warsness to things (we won't even mention the terrible Earth plotline), and the portrayals of Skeletor are vastly different. The cartoon Skeletor was a cackling high-pitched mustache-twirling (if he had a mustasche) villian, while Frank Langella's portrayal in the movie is an awesome performance that would be right at home with Emperor Palpatine.

    Wow, with a reference like that for Skelitor, I might actually have to watch that movie someday. ;)

    Tara - difficult, as I don't care much about either character. Tara wins out because she had a good singing voice.

    Giles - who doesn't love Giles?

    Legolas - because I've not seen Pan's Labrinth.

    Thulsa Doom - voice of Darth Vader!

    Conan--Because he knows what is best in life

    Rupert--Didn't watch the show much when it was on but he was my favorite character

    Legolas--When he took down the Mumakil in RotK, that was probably THE bad-ass moment of the entire trilogy

    Thulsa Doom--I've seen this movie a hundred times and until now I never knew JEJ was called "Thulsa Doom", how strange

    I nearly hit send PMing my votes befor reading the entire first post. [face_blush]

    Barbarian Bracket

    1) Tara Maclay - Buffy The Vampire Slayer: She could do more than grunt.

    2) Rupert Giles - Buffy The Vampire Slayer: I can't imagine ever voting for a cartoon or anime over a live action character.

    3) Legolas LOTR, easily beats out Pan.

    Indeed. Given the choice, I'd choose PGSM over the anime any day.

    Don't know about that since I've never seen PGSM, but I do prefer any incarnation of Sailor Moon to Buffy, especially the later seasons. [face_sick]

    I agree. Seasons six and seven were BLECK!

    And you should try to watch PGSM. Way better than the anime.

    I can only vote for what I'm familiar wiht and I don't think I've ever seen Sailor Moon, in either anime of live action.

    Now Buffy, sorry, I think that is still the best TV series ever.
