Well, the first two rounds of Cinematical's On-Screen Geek-Off Tournament are behind us and one thing is clear: fans are very protective of their movie geeks. I know I came back to view the results more than a few times and came away disappointed that my picks were losing. But such are the whimsical woes of tournaments, so hop back to rounds one and two for the winners/losers, and then let's collectively pour one out for the likes of Rushmore's Max Fischer, Honey I Shrunk the Kids' Wayne Szalinski, and Pretty in Pink's "Ducky" before moving on to the next round.
And looking at the match-ups below, it becomes immediately apparent that I am, despite my mortgage and marriage, not an adult. How is it possible that I can make decisions about life-altering matters like home loans and yet freeze like Han Solo in carbonite when it comes to deciding if McLovin is more of a geek than Data?
Anyways, enough of my personal problems. To the polls!
