Greatest Films According To Grogs: The 1991 Sweet 16
« on: April 15, 2018, 03:08:26 PM »
Sorry about the long hiatus between the last bracket and this one; RL, specifically work, has been a brake on me being able to keep track of these things the last few weeks. Nevertheless here we are again, and I hope you'll watch the trailers and vote!

1991 in Film was not a deep bag, though I have several 'good' ones here, I think.


BRACKET ONE: 1 vs. 16

1. Flight of the Intruder



16. What About Bob?




BRACKET TWO: 8 vs. 9

8. The Naked Gun 2 1/2



9. Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey




BRACKET THREE: 5 vs. 12

5. Soapdish



12. King Ralph




BRACKET FOUR: 4 vs. 13

4. Regarding Henry



13. Toy Soldiers




BRACKET FIVE: 6 vs. 11

6. Hot Shots!



11. City Slickers




BRACKET SIX: 3 vs. 14

3. The Silence Of The Lambs



14. Cape Fear




BRACKET SEVEN: 7 vs. 10

7. Necessary Roughness



10. The Rocketeer




BRACKET EIGHT: 2 vs. 15

2. Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country



15. Terminator 2: Judgement Day

The levels/rankings are not necessarily based on how good they are, but rather how I wanted them to sit in the seeding, and whom they would be up against. I wanted some tough decisions to need to be made.

For the sake of accuracy, I was neck-deep in bullshit, not full of bullshit.



Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out how Silence of the Lambs is a 3-seed.

Only 3 movies in history have swept the big-4 Oscars, and it's one of them

Y'all are free to bitch about anything you want. See reply above re: my method of seeding.

I cannot argue this logic. Makes me appreciate soup all the more.  :smitten:

I can honestly say that this movie (and specifically her dress) is when I went from being a kid to "Whoa, what are THOSE??? Me likey"
