🥇 @Llamacalamity and @Thomas (22 points)
🥈 @checkervest and yours truly (21 points)
🥉 @sexybenfranklin (20 points)

Seriously #MovieBowl. I'm supposed to choose between Shawshank, one of the best movies ever made (imho) and Clerks while I'm gen-x and from NJ?

This is an impossible choice.

@derek Fully prepared to hate people once the results are in.

@derek finally: A movie for grown ups sweeping the Movie Bowl

@derek My feeling about a bracket like this is that it will often result in the Least Disliked winning. The winner will rarely be any person’s personal favorite movie from the list. It rewards mediocrity, like Rotten Tomatoes.

@jsit I think the "most rewatchable" movie wins a lot of the time but I also think a lot of the winners are stone-cold masterpieces, Pulp included

@derek and my bracket is in ruins, not shocking as I took the long-shot

@derek Preparing to hate everyone in advance on this.
