Movie Bad Ass Elite 8

The Elite 8 is finally upon us and there was only one real surprise. Brad Pitt as a 6 seed sneaks in. Was it his performance in Fight Club? Were people scared because of his role in 12 Monkeys? Either way he is in and has a tough draw against Bruce Willis.

I love the variety we have. Old school like Clint and John Wayne, bruisers like Stallone and the Governator, legends like Willis, Ford and Jackson. So lets look at the match-ups we have.

  • #1 Bruce Willis vs #6 Brad Pitt. Can "Pretty Boy" Bangalina muster up the strength to take down a legend like John McLane?
  • #1 Clint Eastwood vs #3 Harrison Ford. A classic showdown. It will be a duel outside the Mos Eisley Cantina at high noon, if that is even possible with two suns.
  • #1 Sylvester Stallone vs #2 Arnold Schwarzenegger. Its a classic slobber knocker and who knows which roided out freak will come out on top? Stallone took down communism, Arnold took down an alien, it really could go either way.
  • #2 Samuel Jackson vs #4 John Wayne. John was the first to take down a #1 seed, can he bring the upset again? If anyone can do it, it will be John. Sam can not show hesitation like he did against the Emperor or the result will be the same, he will be tossed thousands of feet out a window.

WOW, that was a hard one to complete! I was having some serious debates about which one to pick and I was teetering back and forth on a few.

This one was my toughest by far, but i have to vote for the guy that did Hans solo, indy jones and jack ryan some of my favorite childhood roles.

Stallone

Bruce Willis over Brad PittIt's time that this Cinderella story comes to a close. Upsets are nice but McLane is a #1 for a reason. Pitt gets sent out of this competition with HIS head in a box.

Harrison Ford over Clint EastwoodI can't pick between the two men themselves, it is a match of immovable object and unstoppable force. So this one comes down to their most identifiable sidekicks. And I have to say an angry Wookie takes down short-round every time.

Arnold Schwarzenegger over Sylvester StalloneI would simply vote for Stallone if his English was better than Arnold's, but the Philly Itallian accent sounds like mumbles. I have to go with a time traveling alien entity that saves humanity.

Samuel Jackson over John WayneMr. Glass pulls out all the stops and shatters The Duke's chances of winning the tournament. Who can withstand the fury of this bad mother-f*****? I haven's seen anyone yet.
