Yesterday's Results

(3) Star Wars > (6) Taylor Swift
24 to 2

(2) RedLetterMedia > (7) Night in the Woods
10 to 8

That's right, Susan! RedLetterMedia, despite being a 2 seed and one of the most quotable video series out there, almost got beaten by an indie game with no Wikiquote page!

I'm a little surprised on a personal level because RedLetterMedia is so quotable that Mike and Jay themselves have actually stopped going to conventions and stopped interacting with fans online because they're so sick of people going up to them and shouting RLM quotes. They also make fun of their own fans for stinking up the YouTube comments section with overused quotes.

I guess there's not much of an RLM fanbase here on Board 8, just enough to get it over a 2 seed but not enough to match the massive amount of votes Star Wars brought in on its own yesterday. Meanwhile, two voices suddenly cried out for Taylor Swift and were suddenly silenced.

So I guess I'm getting that gag Star Wars / RedLetterMedia Round 2 match I set up, but you gotta wonder how far the Star Wars train is going to go. Like one user said, r/PrequelMemes has propelled Star Wars quotability to new heights over the past few years, flooding the internet with new Star Wars memes and quotes almost weekly. Could Star Wars be our Link?

Sadly doesn't change the result, though. Even one win would have been lovely, especially since I was expecting it to get crushed before the match started.

And wow, I didn't expect the match topic plug for my own contest. Thank you!

today we have Resident Evil v Silent Hill and Zelda CD-i v Rocky

will Zelda's memeability be able to overcome a classic film franchise, or will it fall victim to the video game curse and underperform? hotel mario didn't do too hot but Zelda might be a different animal

Comedy from the 2000s
The 40-Year-Old-Virgin
Borat
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story
The Hangover
Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
Idiocracy
Step Brothers
Superbad
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

so I was thinking this would be a good final day for the first 10 bonus polls, I have these two that could also qualify:

Elf
Team America: World Police
Role Models
Wedding Crashers
Wet Hot American Summer

do any of these belong up there more than ones I have included? I figure Elf does but I was hoping to do a Christmas Movie poll at some point to get that in there. I'm also trying to think of somewhere Team America would fit as it's """"""animated"""""" but I dunno yet. Thoughts?

Also, here's our first 9 entrants in the Best of the Best poll 1, assuming TMNT wins today:

Ace Ventura
The Dark Knight
Dora the Explorer
Final Fantasy VII
Pokemon
Predator
Johnny Bravo
Scooby Doo
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Team America: World Police should definitely be included in the poll for "Americaaaaaa, f*** yeah!" alone

Walk Hard is an incredible movie but maybe not the most quotable

Yesterday's Results:

(1) Resident Evil > (8) Silent Hill
22 to 1

(5) Rocky > (4) Zelda CD-i
15 to 7

Oh boy! I'm so hungry, I can eat an octo-Rocky!

yes I did workshop that one all contest. there's nowhere we can go from here. I'm cancelling the contest. don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past, you must fight just to keep them alive.

In all honesty I'm kind of surprised neither joke CD-i entry went anywhere. These things commanded the early internet. You couldn't go two videos on YouTube without hearing "I CAN'T WAIT TO BOMB SOME DODONGOS." I guess that type of humor didn't age as gracefully as Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged.

Also I'm happy Silent Hill showed up. I dunno if horror game SFF exists in this setting but Resident Evil is shaping up to be a powerhouse. It's REALLY powerful. But can it escape its own division?

Yesterday's Results

(3) Big Lebowski > (6) Mean Girls
16 to 9

(2) Homestar Runner > (7) Zero Wing
14 to 12

Everyone loves Strong Bad. He is an okay guy.

One day Strong Bad was finishing up a game of Most Quotable Media Ever on the moon with his pal, the CATS. He won 1,000,000 to 3.

"You see, 3 is clearly a smaller number than a million," said Strong Bad.

"You have no chance to survive, make your time," said CATS.

They flew on a sweet, sweet rainbow bridge back down to Board 8.

"All your base are belong to us," said CATS.

"Gross!" said Strong Bad. "Shut up!"

---

I'm really impressed with every entrant yesterday! Both matches played out like they should have been in a later round. Big Lebowski, which should have a lot of strength in this contest, couldn't completely stomp out Mean Girls. Maybe next year we'll see Mean Girls return with a higher seed. That would be so fetch. Am I doing this right?

Meanwhile Zero Wing proved to be one of our best video game entrants. The game only has like two dozen lines total but I'm pretty sure most of this board could quote all of them from the top of their head.

Zero Wing almost mounted a comeback at the end but HR had too strong of a start and we don't really get votes at night so it was basically locked up from the start. Zero Wing definitely deserves another shot in a future contest as well.
