Paul Pain's Stooge Short Tournament - Round of 64
« on: March 01, 2017, 06:35:18 PM »

  • Here we go!  Pick your favorite short from each pair (or triplet)!  The ones with most votes advance to the Round of 32.  For your benefit, I have linked the discussion to each respective short from metaldams' reviews.   These are seeded in order by ThreeStooges.net ratings.    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] ;) ::)

    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.

    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.

  • This is becoming tougher and tougher. Where I had a split decision, I selected the one that struck me as most iconic or simply the one that has meant the most to me after nearly 50 years of fandom.

    BRACKET 1

    1 THREE LITTLE BEERS
    3 WHO DONE IT?
    5 THREE ARABIAN NUTS  (Tough choice - I admit I allowed Three Arabian's reputation as Grade A Shemp to give it an edge over Cash & Carry, which I found curious and memorable as a kid)
    7 NO CENSUS, NO FEELING
    79 VIOLENT IS THE WORD FOR CURLY
    11 HOW HIGH IS UP?
    13 THEY STOOGE TO CONGA
    15 GOOF ON THE ROOF
    59 I'LL NEVER HEIL AGAIN
    55 YOU NAZTY SPY!
    21 WE WANT OUR MUMMY
    23 HEAVENLY DAZE
    25 THREE SAPPY PEOPLE
    27 MOVIE MANIACS
    43 TASSELS IN THE AIR
    31 CRIME ON THEIR HANDS
    # # #

    BRACKET 2

    2 BRIDELESS GROOM
    4 IN THE SWEET PIE AND PIE
    6 A PLUMBING WE WILL GO
    8 HOI POLLOI
    10 DIZZY DOCTORS  (Toughest choice of all, to eliminate iconic Men in Black — but Dizzy Doctors is loaded with memorable moments)
    12 BOOBS IN ARMS
    14 CRASH GOES THE HASH
    16 STUDIO STOOPS
    18 AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE
    62 PUNCH DRUNKS
    22 FUELIN' AROUND
    24 DOPEY DICKS
    26 MICRO-PHONIES (I've always liked underrated Sitter Downers — which has one of my all time favorite moments of stooge violence — but. . . .)
    28 DUTIFUL BUT DUMB (Another tough one: Tricky Dicks is certainly very worthy, but Dutiful is a feast for Curly fans.)

    I just checked, and literally every vote where there was a difference of one, you made it a difference of two.  So I see no controversy, in other words.

  • No harm, no foul!  Just make sure you get in your vote for the Round of 32 to me in a timely manner.  And from "numbskull" to "knothead" I go!
