The 2018 MFF March “Mad Movie” Madness Bracket

March 12, 2018

March Madness is upon us so I felt it was necessary to figure out which movie with “mad/madness” in its title would reign supreme in a single elimination tournament. I compiled a list of 32 movies and I ranked them according to their Tomatometer/IMDb User Score average. I then set up the bracket much like the NCAA does (#1 vs #32 in first round etc..) and set about making my predictions.

There are some upsets in the list and I feel like I’ve gone out on a limb picking Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior over Mad Max: Fury Road in the final. The way I see it is Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior took the template from Stagecoach and created an action classic. Mad Max: Fury Road is a better film but it borrowed the gameplan from its predecessor and when it comes down to it I believe The Road Warrior will hit all the clutch shots on the way to the fictional championship.

I took a couple risks by picking #15 In the Mouth of Madness and #13 Mad Dog and Glory to make it so far in the tournament because I am a huge fan of John Carpenter and Bill Murray. They may be outmatched but if you’ve watched Space Jam or Rushmore you know to never bet against Bill Murray (until he goes head to head with Mad Max).


Here is the bracket below! Leave a comment and let me know who you think should win.
