If I were playing, I would make a case each round why movie is better than the one it's matched up against. I wouldn't go with a stock description or tagline.

I'm hoping for dirty fights.

The voting threads are gonna be open Thursday for publicity(Dirty Fighting). But the voting won't start until Friday, giving the producers a full day to sound their films praises. The stock description in post #1 is there to help the casual onlooker/voter

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Okay we have decided on a new format to speed things up a bit. Instead of one pool of 12 movies, we will have 2 leagues. The schedule will be reduced to 5 weeks of regular season and then one championship round.

Here are the leagues(I used random.org to seperate)

North
Groucho
wishbone
Michael Corvin
Fist of Doom
sauce07
devilshalo

South
Mano
woody5254
orangecrush
The Bus
JasonF
Suprmallet


Schedule to come

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Here's a question I had that will affect if I keep or drop a franchise:

I chose Jim Henson and Frank Oz as supporting actors, since they did the voices of the Muppets. Am I able to use them for multiple Muppets (i.e. Jim Henson is Kermit AND the Swedish Chef, etc.), or are they stuck each doing one?

Looks like we're missing four picks from Mano and eight from Fist of Doom. These will be filled by the players here if we don't hear from them this week.

"The Muppets" I think is broad enough that you can incorporate anyone in the Muppets universe. I would probably not allow other stuff that Frank Oz or Jim Henson would've worked on outside of "The Muppets"...

Right, unless I picked those franchises (Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, etc.). I wasn't intending to use those, just needed to make sure I would be able to use Henson and Oz as multiple Muppets.

Tomorrow woody and I will work out the schedule. We were trying to hash something over for most of the day. Then we'll start a pitch / round 1 thread.
