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 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
