I have a dream.
I want to stage a March Madness tournament for horse movies.
Here’s how I imagine this working. Comment on this blog with names of horse movies. I’ll do an initial list below, too.
On Monday, March 16, I will put up a poll. You can choose your top 5. Based on the weighted results of that poll, I will “seed” a sweet 16, and present that on the following day.
Beginning on March 18, I will begin competitions. Each day, I’ll put up a poll for our matchup, with short descriptions of the movies, links to their imdb pages, images, etc., so that we can all make informed decisions. The winner of the poll advances.
On Monday, March 30, we will crown our champion. I think it’ll be a fun way to talk about our favorite horse movies, and maybe discover some new ones.
SO! Comment here with names of horse movies that you think should be in the initial list!
