2012 Movie Contest: The 3rd Bracket!!! (Results: pg. 2)

Postby American Eagle » Fri Jan 27, 2012 2:52 am

v READ BELOW BEFORE YOU VOTE. v
Welcome to the THIRD AND FINAL bracket of the Grand 2012 Film Anticipation contest! \:D/ Have a look at the descriptions of the 16 films in this poll, consider which ones you're most interested in viewing, and then vote for them! You have up to 4 votes.

______________________________________
The Bourne Legacy
A continuation of the "Bourne" series of movies. Matt Damon (who played Jason Bourne) is not in this film. The story resumes after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum, as a new cast of characters grapple with the consequences of Bourne's actions.
Image

The Dark Knight Rises
The final film in Christopher Nolan's Batman series. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, Batman returns to Gotham where he must discover the truth regarding the mysterious Selina Kyle, while stopping the villain Bane's plans to destroy the city.
Image

Dark Shadows
A supernatural drama film based on the gothic soap opera, "Dark Shadows". Directed by Tim Burton (Sweeney Todd, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and starring Johnny Depp. The plot is confusing, but there's secrets, vampires, witches and death.
Image

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
One of AE's most anticipated movies of the year. \:D/ Starring all the same characters from the first two films, this movie is based on the third and fourth book in the series, The Last Straw and Dog Days. I have no idea what it's about.
Image

Finding Nemo (in 3D)
3D re-release of Pixar's beloved film about a fish looking for his son, Nemo.

SPOILER: In the 3D version, Nemo dies at the end! :evillaugh:
Image

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
A sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, but it's really a reboot, IMO. Starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Bruce Willis, the G.I. Joes are badly beaten and out-numbered, but they make a desperate plan to stop Cobra from taking over the world.
Image

The Great Gatsby
A romantic drama film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel. Directed by Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Australia), and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. A full poster hasn't yet been released.
Image

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The first part of The Hobbit, an adaption of the book by J.R.R.R. Tolkien and prequel to The Lord of the Rings.
Image

Life of Pi
A fantasy adventure movie based on the 2001 novel by Yann Martel. Pi, a kid, is the only person to survive the sinking of a freighter. He finds himself on a lifeboat with a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Bengal tiger. This is the book's cover.
Image

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Made by DreamWorks Animation, this is the third film in the Madagascar series. Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria set out to return to New York after escaping to Africa, but their plan goes awry and they find themselves stranded in Monte Carlo.
Image

Men in Black 3
The long-awaited sequel to parts I and II. When Agent K's (Tommy Lee Jones) life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J (Will Smith) will have to travel back in time to put things right. I apologize if anyone is blinded by this poster.
Image

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (in 3D)
The first of the Star Wars films to be released in 3D. This is the greatest poster I've ever seen.
Image

Step Up 4
Step Up 4ever is the next installment in the worldwide smash "Step Up" franchise, which sets the dancing against the vibrant backdrop of Miami. (Can you tell I copied that synopsis from elsewhere? I would never write such praise. :noway:)
Image

The Three Stooges
A slapstick comedy film based on The Three Stooges... obviously. It was produced, written and directed by the Farrelly brothers (There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber). While trying to save their childhood orphanage, Moe, Larry, and Curly inadvertently stumble into a murder plot and wind up starring in a reality TV show.
Image

Total Recall
A science fiction/action remake of the 1990 film. This stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. It's being directed by Len Wiseman, the guy behind the Underworld franchise.
Image

World War Z
A post-apocalyptic horror film based on the novel by Max Brooks. The film is directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Stranger than Fiction, Quantum of Solace) and stars Brad Pitt. It's about zombies and stuff.
Image

______________________________________
If you're looking forward to a movie in 2012 wasn't in any of these brackets, I apologize. I did my best to select the seemingly most popular ones. Feel free to mention it below. \:D/ Four of the films in this poll will advance to the finals. Vote now!

Here's the movies already in the finals:
  • The Amazing Spider-Man
  • The Avengers
  • Beauty and the Beast (in 3D)
  • The Hunger Games
  • Ice Age: Continental Drift
  • Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
  • Les Misérables
  • The Lorax
  • Brave

What movies are you anticipating?

All the good ones are in this bracket. :mad:

Next to the Hobbit and DKR, I especially look forward to Dark Shadows, Life of Pi, Bourne Legacy and MIBIII.

I know, I know :) I've just never gotten around to it, because we don't own them, and whenever we watch a movie at my cousins or something, they want to watch something else. I'm going to see if my library has them :yes:

Why would we be 'done' with him? :noway: He and Johnny Depp are the perfect pair.

Johnny Depp is creepy.... He reminds me of Lady Gaga. He play's some funny roles, however. But over all, he's just plain old...strange.... X_X

It's pretty much randomized. I went through the year's releases and sorted them into four groups. After looking through my groups, I decided to reduce it to three, and that resulted in some brackets having better films than others. (I didn't intend to put The Hobbit and The Dark Knight Rises in the same poll, but oh well. ;)) I considered doing it by theme (such as 1. Animation, 2. Action, 3. Drama).

THE HOBBIT.

BATMAN.

STAR WARS.

Oh, and I voted for the Three Stooges as well. Hopefully it'll turn out clean and funny... Two spoonfuls of wishful thinking, anyone? ;) (*cough* All this talk of Johnny Depp right after Aeva and I watch 'Alice in Wonderland'.)
