Greatest Show and Movie of All-Time Brackets

A few weeks ago I got the idea to make a tournament among my followers to see what they think are the greatest shows and movies of all-time. I got a lot of answers and I think the bracket came out interestingly so this should be a fun experiment.

Once I was able to get both lists down to 16, the matchups were set and it’s always fun to see people have to choose between two legendary pieces of work head-to-head. It makes you think about it differently. Just based on the results I expect more than a few upsets. So without further ado, here are our first round matchups:

Greatest Movie of All-Time

#1 The Shawshank Redemption vs. 51

#16 Fight Club 19

#8 Heat vs. 16

#9 Training Day 42

#5 The Usual Suspects vs. 31

#12 Psycho 34

#4 Goodfellas vs. 21

#13 The Dark Knight 47

#3 Forrest Gump vs. 48

#14 Inception 25

#6 The Departed vs. 9

#11 Saving Private Ryan 19

#7 Good Will Hunting vs. 8

#10 The Godfather 18

#2 Pulp Fiction vs. 22

#15 Friday 8

I feel safe in saying I could see at least three of the lower seeds winning their first round matchups here. I’ll be posting polls on Facebook and Twitter so feel free to vote in both (and follow both if you like *shrug*).

Now for the shows bracket which is going to be even more unpredictable.

Greatest Show of All-Time

#1 Breaking Bad vs. 80

#16 The Simpsons 22

#8 Seinfeld vs. 27

#9 House of Cards 13

#5 South Park vs. 33

#12 The West Wing 10

#4 The Office vs. 43

#13 The Shield 6

#3 The Sopranos vs. 31

#14 Bojack Horseman 12

#6 The Wire vs. 29

#11 It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia 35

#7 Boardwalk Empire vs. 9

#10 Chappelle’s Show 40

#2 Game of Thrones vs. 37

#15 Community 17

There are some fun matchups here as well and I see a few underdogs that are likely to go on runs as we move through the tournament. Now for the rules.

I’ll be posting the polls Saturday at noon, and they’ll run through Sunday at Midnight. That’s 36 hours. I’ll tally all votes and we’ll move to the next round the following weekend.

I’m not going to waste your time with a bunch of words or my input. VOTE!
