Paul Pain's Stooge Short Tournament - Preliminary Round 2

  • Here we go!  Pick your favorite short from each pair!  The ones with most votes advance to the third preliminary round.  For your benefit, I have linked the discussion to each respective short from metaldams' reviews.   These are seeded in order by ThreeStooges.net ratings.  The winner of of Bracket 1 goes onto be seed 127 in the big board, and the winner of Bracket 2 goes on to be 128.  If we have enough fun with this, maybe we can push these brackets long enough to achieve an order of 1-190 by these methods?  [pie] [3stooges] ;) ::)

    After the week is up, I will lock the topic until after the tournament is done.

    Edit: in case of a tie, both shorts advance, and there will be three shorts squaring off based on where the lower ranked short would have been.

  • Some of these choices are not easy... it's like asking "Which is better: cyanide or guillotine?"... particularly the bottom 3 pairs in Bracket 2

    When I read "Some of these choices are not easy... it's like asking 'Which is better: cyanide or guillotine?'... particularly the bottom 3 pairs in Bracket 2"  I first saw it as "Which is better, cyanide or Ovaltine?"  I need a day off.   :o

    Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

    I'm going to stick with my original choices, but I'm going to go back and see what changes if I did it this way.

  • We have multiple ties at the time of this posting.  Please, folks, cast votes so that we have an odd number of votes.

    Where's Dr. Hugo Gansamacher when you need him?

  • Paul, just a suggestion.  What I did when ties happened is I allowed both shorts to advance to the next round and had three shorts (or four, if necessary); square off in a bracket.  You could either have a straight vote or have people rank the three, giving 3 points to first place, 2 points for second place, and 1 point for third place.  Maybe something to consider after the preliminaries, but it always worked for me.

    I like this solution better than discounting my own votes, especially since I am now closing the votes on this one.  Brackets go up tomorrow  :laugh: >:D :-X [pie]

  • Paul, glad you counted your vote to save one of my favs, Cuckoo On A Choo Choo. But it's definitely on the endangered list.
