Release schedule is:

Memorial Day
orangecrush: Godfather vs Grand Theft Auto IV
woody5254: 007 vs. Bourne
JasonF: King Arthur vs. Aliens
Groucho: The Little Tramp vs. Evil Dead

Independence Day
wishbone: Masters of the Universe vs Last Starfighter
devilshalo: Terminator vs Back to the Future
sauce07: Spinal Tap vs Animal House
Mano: Calvin & Hobbes vs. Lord of the Rings

August
The Bus: Indiana Jones vs. Pirates of the Caribbean
Michael Corvin: The Expendables vs. Leon
Fist of Doom: Death Wish vs. Beverly Hills Cop
Suprmallet: The Muppets vs. Sherlock Holmes

woody5254, with the assistance of Super Mullet, will start the threads (one "weekend" at a time) regarding the films.

The next one will start soon, with voting going through next week. Then the "July 4" thread will start, and finally (in late September) the August one. Everyone can participate in every thread but keep in mind the focus of the thread should be on the four movies in that part of the season.

woody will explain the voting process, but you're basically looking for as many votes as possible.
I am confused on the voting. I thought we were doing a number of different head-to-head votes w/ the winner from each division facing off in a championship.

Okay, here is how the voting works. I am gonna post all 4 movies together and pose the question, which of these movies would you like to see over the course of a weekend(You can vote for up to 3). After all 3 groups have gone I will take the top 6 percentage wise for the final group. I will post all 6 of those together and ask the same question.

We decided that the H2H format that was originally posted might become too drawn out and some of the luster would be lost as we went on in the tourney.

That makes sense.

I am just waiting for the all the summaries and movie posters to post the first group. Not sure if Bus has all the movie posters somewhere or not.

I had no idea we were supposed to send in the posters we made. I have only made teaser posters thus far.

Bus said we were to post them in the threads. Nobody said to send them to anybody. I'll send you my stuff now.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

So, hmm, through a funny series of events, I have a copy of Photoshop, but it's packed up in a box way in the back of a closet...and it's not installed on my computer. Crap.

Edit: On top of that, I also suck at Photoshop, any suggestions?

I used Gimp and the movie poster website posted earlier. But, my posters are super simple.
