    A BEST DIRECTOR Tournament would be nice to see.

    Actors are more known than directors.

    And for directors you'd have your basic:
    Scorsese, Spielberg, Stone, Jackson, GL, Howard, Burton

    After that you really have to think about it.

    I agree with Moleman, besides the big ones, directors aren't well known enough to have a tourny.


    EDIT: Oops, [face_blush] should have looked at the first post before saying that. [face_laugh]

    I'd have to disagree on best EU novel. I don't think it has the same range that, say, the actors tournament did. I wouldn't be able to participate because I've read very few EU novels . . . but I guess it could work. If the Beatles song tourny worked, then EU novels can work. It'd just make me sad. :p

    Just a reminder: here are the tournys we've had so far:

    Star Wars Characters
    John, Paul, George and Ringo
    Best Picture Oscars
    Cartoons!
    Movies (non-Star Wars)
    Nintendo Video Games
    TV Comedy Series
    Rock Music Artists
    Star Wars Lines
    Mini-tournament: Star Wars creatures

    And of course the current one.


    We could do a more general "Books" one. The folks from the Amph would definitely get involved in that.

    These are the three ideas i am considering for the next tourny... please contribute your thoughts on what you think is best!!

    -Best Star Wars Novel (EU only?)
    -Best fictional Superhero
    -Best Ficitonal Villian

    I would enjoy seeing any one of those as the next tourny. :D

    As far as the SW novels go, I think any novel would count, it would be interesting to see if the movie ones got anywhere. The prequel novels are written by different authors (i.e. not Lucas), and so are qualified books in themselves in my opinion.

    Fictional Superhero and Villian would be cool, although personally I would struggle to think of many. But that's probably just me. ;)


    SW Novel would be my pick, although as Boogie pointed out it would be hard for those who haven't read very many....

    The ANH novelization wasn't written by the Great Flanneled one either. It was ghost written by Alan Dean Foster. Lucas just supplied his name. And other than the Revenge of the Sith novelization, none of the other movie books would stand even a remote chance of winning. But I would LOVE to have a best EU tournament! It would be one I could intelligently participate in :)

    the superheros and villians would be cool too :)

    Superhero/Villian would be interesting. There could be a lot of fun in that tourney.

    -Best Ficitonal Villian


    Ooooh! I really like this idea. Except that I'd prefer if it was limited to non-SW villains. If not, I think we can all easily predict the outcome. (Not that I'd really argue, but...)

    Good point :p I'm for forbidding SW villians as well, since everyone's all hyped up over their ROTS DVDs :p

    Basically I am just going to wait a few days and see which idea has the most interest, because all three are fine with me :)

    I'd actually like to do the EU book one, but I'm not sure if it would have enough participation... Although you never know! Also i could advertise it in the lit/EU forums, and perhaps bring some new people to the forum

    I'd definitely like to do Best/Favorite Animated/CGI Character from a TV show or movie. They could be hand drawn or digital. Think of the possibilities.

    Stewie, Cartman, Homer Simpson, Fred Flintstone, Scooby Doo, Spongebob, Nemo, Gollum, Dobby, Watto. The list goes on and on.

    We could come up with 128-256 characters. It would be endless. Of course we'd have to limit the number of characters from each show or film since there's like hundreds on the Simpsons and South Park alone.

    Best EU novel?

    That would be a cool one.

    Moleman, that would be so unfair. It is obvious Jar Jar would win.

    I do like the superhero and EU novel ideas, too. But the villain one is right up my alley. [face_mischief]

    Well, we'll probably end up doing all three, it's just which to do first!

    Hey guys, we're only a few weeks from a new tournament.... the two ideas i have now are the "best superhero" and "best villian" one. Both have to be fictional. Which would you guys like to do first? i don't really have a personal preference.
