That’s right, folks. We are jumping on that bandwagon like nobody’s business. That, and we also thought it’d be nice to give our scant but loyal readership a chance to take part in the publication. So, throughout the month of March, we will be hosting a championship bracket to determine the best film of 2014. Through a long and arduous process, the writers and editors of Rooster Illusion selected the sixteen competitors, but you, dear reader, will have to select the winner. A new poll will be available every other day, so check back regularly. Also, keep in mind that if you need a refresher on any of these films, we’ve reviewed all of them.
In what turned out to be our most heated poll yet–and surprisingly our highest participation–Locke and John Wick were deadlocked nearly the entire two day run, until a sudden eleventh hour spike in votes propelled John Wick into first place. Will those mystery voters keep it going against The Lego Movie? We’ll see. First up, though, we have Paul Thomas Anderson’s quirky stoner noir vs. a powerfully honest depiction of one of the most important events of the American 20th Century. Need a recap on either film? You can read our reviews of Inherent Vice and Selma.
