Paul Pain's Stooge Short Tournament - Round of 32

  • Here we go!  Pick your favorite short from each pair (or triplet)!  The ones with most votes advance to the Round of 16.  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.

  • And the results are in!  I am surprised by some winners and not surprised by the rest.  It's interesting to see how people rate two shorts as compared to each other as I find myself sometimes a bigger fan of a short that I rated lower than its opponent.  There were several ties in this round.

    79 VIOLENT IS THE WORD FOR CURLY 5 and 1 THREE LITTLE BEERS 5

    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.

    If y'all have noticed, there's a decided bias toward Curly shorts going on here.

  • Maybe, but Arabian Nuts over Tassels puts a big dent in that theory.  Must be an anomaly.
