There’s this “March Madness” style tournament bracket voting deal going around on Twitter, so I figured I’d jump on the train and work it out for myself. Some of the choices were very easy. Others, not so much!
In my special version of the brackets, Mulan jumps up to the bracket above it* so that it doesn’t get eliminated in the first round against such a strong contender…
If we were talking only the first 10 minutes of UP, it would clean up the first few brackets handily, that is some of the most powerful storytelling ever put to film. (The rest isn’t bad per se, just not nearly as strong.)
Forcing a choice between Ratatouille and Wall-E, erg… they’re two of my favourite films of all times. Both very strong. I gave it to Ratatouille by a whisker. I’ll probably switch choice if you ask me again. (And then switch once more…)
As for the final result, well, probably no surprise to anyone here!
What would your bracket look like?
* This is the one movie I am interested in the upcoming live remake. The animated version had some issues with knowing what it was going for (both tone and storywise), and the promise and premise never gelled. A re-working with a solid vision could turn out well!
