Friday Face-Off #28

Time for another week of the Friday Face-Off. It's a simple affair in which you are given a choice between two Oscar winners in specific categories. You choose which of the two is best. When the game concludes, we'll have the ultimate winner in each category. For example: If you were to choose between Oscar Winner A and Oscar Winner B, the winner would face off against the winner of the contest between Oscar Winner C and Oscar Winner D. Think of it like championship brackets but with an Oscar style. If this is popular enough, we may do it for other types of films, events and such. Each week we may even have different categories to keep things spicy.

Here is this week's ten face-offs. So, let's get started.

  1. The costumes in “Brothers Grimm” are almost plastic like – full of color exploiting the films Cinerama and puppet side stories. This certainly does not work on the small screen.

  2. Peter is entirely correct!

    • Thanks, but Mike Kelly was teh first with those responses.

      • I think this was the first time that three of us unanimously agreed.

        • There a couple of instances where I was undecided between choices and deliberately picked the underdog as in last week’s pick of Marty over On the Waterfront but there was no indecision on my part this go-around.
