A humor tournament. Banter category, slapstick category, dark humor category, random category.
(I hope this is the right place to ost something like this)
I'm really enjoying the Beatles tournament that is going on right now. I wonder if it would be possible to do a Led Zeppelin tournament sometime? I guess you probably want to do something non-musical next, so perhaps not right after this one, but it would be cool to see sometime.
Yeah, I'd love to have more music tourneys, but we should probably do something else for the next one.
Any fresh ideas?
we could do another film tournament. greatest director, or actor/actress, or greatest film villain maybe?
Remember, we can run smaller tournaments, too. Like the "mini" SW creatures tourney last year.
Also, we could run more than one at a time, especially if they are "minis".
Favorite SW vehicle? Imperial? Planet?
Favorite line of dialog? SW or overall.
I know there was discussion over in the Amph. about the horrendous "Top Movie Lines Of All-Time" list, and that we could do better.
I'd like to see a Led Zeppelin song tournament.
that's a great idea winter_chili
i'd like to see a 'best band front man/woman' tournament
Favourite Simpsons character
Favourite TV show
Favourite video/computer game
I love the ideas for favourite SW vehicle and planet
Worst band or performer ever that had a number 1 hit.
I would'nt mind doing a video/computer game tourny.
I know there's already a poll for this, but I think it would be very well-suited to a tournament (and my apologies if it has been done before): favourite superhero, or, alternately, supervillain. They could even be run as different brackets in the same tournament, with the ultimate superhero and villain facing off against each other in a battle for the ages.
That's an awesome idea, durga.
Yeah that is a really good idea!
How do you feel about a movie tournament set up by era?
Pre-1970 (16 nominees in one bracket)
1970s (16 nominees in one bracket)
1980s (16 nominees in one bracket)
Post-1989 (16 nominees in one bracket)
If we included SW films, the final four could include ANH, ESB/ROTJ, and TPM/AOTC.
Oh, that would be nice! The different eras is a really cool idea. But SW films should probably not be included - it would be much more fun to see other movies duking it out, because the results would be less predictable.
Well, for those of you "born writers," we could have a character creation tournament. People make up a character, write a few paragraphs of his/her physical description, history, affiliation, etc. The person with the most developed character wins!
I haven't participated in a tournament before but i've read every page of the beatles one and loved all of it. It made me listen to all my albums again.
I'd definately be in for a movie tournament, set up by era. But don't include star wars because that'd just make the ending a forgone conclusion.
Yeah, I agree with *cough* we should have a Pink Floyd tournament.
we need a new tourny
Maybe a best movie scene tourney, either Star Wars or all movies
Of the above suggestions, I'd vote for either superheroes/villains or movies by era.
Well, we've already done a SW character tourny.
a "greatest superhero" tourny sounds like a cool idea to me, or maybe the "greatest villian of all time"? Those are my favorite ideas that have been presented so far
I think having the two together might be a bit messy.
Also, maybe we could do a tourny of all the "academy award Best Picture winners" for the last 64 years (to make the tourny even). It'd incorporate GK's idea of covering all time periods, and it wouldn't inculde any star wars movies.
An Oscar Winners tourney would be extremely interesting.
I'll try to set up something along those lines, but it's gonna be a few days yet.
Even though we aren't quite done with Round One in the Oscars Tournament, [link=http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=3926917]this article[/link] started me thinking about the next tournament. All-time film scenes? How about if first we did Star Wars scenes? I'm sure we can come up with 64.
My main concern with doing scenes is the length. For example, the Battle of Hoth (listed in the article) is a very long "scene", as are the pod race, the Battle of Yavin, etc. If we did this, should we go by the chapters listed on the DVDs? Thoughts?
Also, there's no rule that we have to wait for the existing tourney to finish to begin another.
Now that 2004 is over, can we have a tourney for the Best Overall Film of 04. Nominees would be based on Domestic / International Box Office Status, Awards (Globes and Oscars), Amount of Hype, and JC appeal. I've got about 64 films from last year that would be eligible.
Of course, finish the Oscar one first. But I'd be all for this suggestion.
