5 rounds of head to head action and we've finally landed at the place I'm guessing most of you anticipated we'd arrive: Spielberg v.s. Scorsese for the title of MFC's Favorite Director of All Time. As predictable as the final matchup was, it was certainly an unexpected journey throughout the previous 5 rounds which brought us some phenomenal showdowns in the final four. And while Spielberg and Scorsese have plowed through the previous competition with relative ease, Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers didn't go down without a fight. Spielberg found a way to survive against the Coens in a narrow 9-7 victory while Scorsese edged Hitchcock 7-6. Both finals contenders have a longevity and consistency throughout their respective careers that's virtually unparalleled and this final bought between the two powerhouses of cinema should make for our closest matchup yet. Voting on this final matchup will commence next Tuesday, March 31, with the winner announced the following day (no lame April fool's day jokes, I promise). Thanks for voting!
MFC's Favorite Director of All Time: The Final Four - Match 2:
MFC's Favorite Director of All Time: The Final Four - Match 1:
It's been an incredibly close tournament up to this point but for the most part, the Elite 8 match ups were all blow outs. Spielberg annihilated Carpenter 13-3, Scorsese humiliated FFC 13-1 and Hitchcock shut out McTiernan 12-0. The only tightly contested match this round came from the #5.Coen Brothers (who've eeked out wins over James Cameron, Stanley Kubrick and Brian De Palma) taking down #3.Quentin Tarantino (who for the most part, has gone virtually untested in previous match ups with George Roy Hill, Kevin Smith and Richard Donner). The Coen Brothers are the only non #1 seed to advance to the final four.
Final Four voting will run from now until 11:59 March 26th with the Finals will being held March 27th - March 31st and the overall winner announced on April 1st. Thanks for voting!
After 3 grueling rounds we've arrived at our final 8 directors in the tournament. Round 4 wasn't nearly as closely contested as round 3. Well with the exception of #1.Alfred Hitchcock edging out #4.Chris Nolan by a single vote after both Hitchcock and Nolan won their previous matches by less than 3 combined votes as well. Hitch will go up against the last remaining Cinderella story in the tournament in #15.John McTiernan.
Stanley Kubrick became the first #1 seed to fall in the tournament as the Coen Brothers made easy work of the reclusive Brit after needing overtime to win their sweet sixteen matchup against James Cameron. The Coens will go into the Elite 8 against the highest overall vote getter in the tournament thus far, #3.Quentin Tarantino.
In the other quarters of the bracket we'll see the seemingly inevitable matchup between #1.Martin Scorsese and #2.Francis Ford Coppola as well as #1.Steven Spielberg v.s. #2.John Carpenter. This fourth round will run from tonight until 11:59 Sunday night, with the Final Four directors announced on Monday. Each round will be posted in a blog like this and voting will be tallied through the comments or individual polls. Thanks for voting!
