The 2015 Movie Madness Bracket


I understand not everybody is into basketball, or even sports for that matter. So for the past few years (with the help of some awesome people), I have released a TV Madness bracket for the masses to vote on. Dexter vs. The Wire, Friends vs. How I Met Your Mother, Breaking Bad vs. Mad Men, Game of Thrones vs. The Walking Dead…It was a good time. 

This year we’re switching things up and moving from the small screen to the silver screen. Movies from several genres and eras…there’s certainly something for everyone. We’ve also added 2 Play-In Games to expand the field to 68, much like the NCAA Tournament. Voting for the Play-In Games will start HERE tomorrow (3/25) morning. The REAL THING will begin 3/26 and voting will be open till 11 PM CST each day. 

Obviously everything is subjective with the seedings, but let’s take a closer look at each region for you to start making your picks!

The De Niro/Brando Region

This is a very Drama filled region, and not the kind you get in Mean Girls. Most of these films have ranked high in the typical “all-time” lists, and are likely the ones that “Shawshank” you when they are played on AMC…

(For future reference, being “Shawshanked” happens when you catch a film on TV and no matter the point you tune into, or what time it is, you have to finish the film.)

(1) The Godfather
Matchup To Watch:

(3) Pulp Fiction vs. (14) Fight Club

The Willis/Statham Region

Like Explosions? Gunfights? Epic oneliners?…What do you mean “No”? Get the hell out of here!  

(1) Die Hard
Matchup To Watch:

(8) Top Gun vs. (9) The Matrix

The Belushi/Murray Region

This is the kind of “funny” Henry Hill was referring to when he pissed off Pesci in Goodfellas. Had to give John and Bill the region’s title considering they star in 4 of the above films. 

(1) Animal House

Matchup To Watch:

(7) Anchorman vs. (1) The Big Lebowski

The Harrison Ford/Clooney Region

This region is a fun mix for fans of adventure, fantasy, and other miscellaneous awesomeness. Yes, I understand “Harrison Ford” is the only one to get his full name in a region…but when have you ever referred to him by just his first or last name? He also stars in the Top 2 seeds.

(1) Star Wars

Matchup to Watch:

(7) Toy Story vs. (10) The Lego movie

Check in tomorrow morning (3/25) as voting for the Play-In games will begin. Votes on Twitter directed to @Mike_PiFF03 with the hashtag #MovieMadness will also be counted. Feel free to fill out your own copy of the bracket and Tweet it to me to be shared.
