Welcome to The Final Four (ROUND FIVE) of the RowThree March Madness pool! The four divisions of contenders have finally come together looking to advance to the championship game. It’s up to you to decide who advances. Look through each bracket within all five divisions and make your choice. After a few days the polls will close and we’ll see who advances to the next round. There can be only one victor. (Note: there is a fifth set of brackets we’re calling the Consolation Division – a group of 16 directors we really wanted to see compete but weren’t quite “worthy” of the big dance. This round is now over – see the results below).
We’re down to The Final Four(!) and the divisions finally meet up to clash it out. As expected it’s all of our number one seeds competing for the title of champion. What wasn’t expected (at least by me) was the fact that voting has actually gotten easier as subsequent rounds ensue. That said, who do you pick now? Kurosawa or Tarantino? Are you going with the master pioneer or the talented “rip-off” artist? Do you vote for the master of suspense and thrills or Billy Wilder and his status as Hollywood’s “Golden” boy? No pick is right and no pick is wrong; you just gotta go with your gut.
And it’s all over in the consolation division and the Queen’s royal touch seems to have paid off for Sir Ridley Scott as he beat out all of the competition, including the likes of Mike Leigh, Wes Craven, Sam Raimi and Joel Schumacher among others, to take home the NIT trophy. So congratulations Mr. Scott – now go make a good movie!
