    Congratulations to Baby Doll, Peng, and Yxklyx for having movies they suggested in the Play-In Round make it through the round one gauntlet. (Ezee E also participated in the Play-In Round but none of his movies survived, though I doubt he is too upset since he voted against all of his own movies.)

    Baby Doll: Basic Instinct
    Peng: Ed Wood, Three Colors: Red
    Yxklyx: Lost Highway

    These posters will receive one extra vote for each of their movies that makes it to the Sweet Sixteen. The extra vote can then be redeemed for any match-up, in any remaining round of Madness 2.0.

    Biggest question mark is The Unforgiven/Trainspotting pairing here for me. Both are perhaps their directors' bests...
    The Boat People - 9
    The Power of the Dog - 7.5
    The King of Pigs - 7

    Great flick. Sadly that is how I mostly learned about the man since Iowa history books decided not to even mention him when I was a kid. And if they did, well....smh.
    Blog!

    And it's happened once again
    I'll turn to a friend
    Someone that understands
    And sees through the master plan
    But everybody's gone
    And I've been here for too long
    To face this on my own
    Well, I guess this is growing up

    Dreamdead is the first person to vote in all match-ups this early (EDIT: Lazlo a close second). It wasn't until the Sweet Sixteen of Madness 1.0 that anyone had 100% completion.

    I hereby take back your kudos, monster.

    EDIT #2: Everything I've said here is incorrect. Yxklyx was first. I need a red bull. What is clear is we have seen more 90s movies than 80s movies.

    My comment was not about the content- rather, its up against Boogie Nights, which has been my favorite movie for 20+ years.

    I promise to watch Terminator 2 if that match-up ends up being close. That being said, I hope Lambs blows it out because I'd really rather not.

    EDIT: who woulda thunk

    This is one of the easiest match ups. Groundhog Day is way better than The Big Lebowski.

    I was jarred by how poorly Leon The Professional held up the last time I watched it.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Yeah, definitely one of those movies where I was like "did I watch a different movie when I was younger?" Everything that seemed so cool when I was young came off as either senseless or sleezy.
