ROUND THREE RECAP
HOOSIERS VS. FIELD OF DREAMS.
WINNER: FIELD OF DREAMS. Both of these films are beloved by many and easily won in any matchup they were placed. However in the end, this cocktail of baseball and ghosts was far too powerful for any film on its side of the bracket, even the classic basketball film Hoosiers.
ROCKY VS. CINDERELLA MAN.
WINNER: ROCKY. This boxing matchup was won with ease by the champ Rocky. He took down all his competitors in the same way, and Cinderella Man, the heavyweight that it is, wasn't any exception. Now only one baseball film stands in his way.
Need a little help deciding which one wins your fancy? Let's recap each film by watching their trailer and reviewing some of their strengths.
FIELD OF DREAMS-
WHY FIELD OF DREAMS SHOULD WIN -
- It's one of the only movies I know of that can successfully make grown men cry.
- There's a whole episode of HIMYM dedicated to its greatness.
- It's extremely quotable and memorable all the way around.
- It's about more than just baseball.
WHY ROCKY SHOULD WIN-
- It's the ultimate story of an underdog
- It has one of the coolest theme songs of any sports film.
- It has some of the most memorable and iconic moments of not just any sports film, but film in general.
- Would you just LOOK at that trailer? The trailer alone is just such a great showcase of trailers for that era. Okay, that wasn't really about the movie so....I'll add it has some great characters.
So here it goes....pick the champ now! The winner will be announced sometime on Wednesday, so be sure to get your votes in before then!
