It was close for a little while, but in the end, Zelda’s Kid Sister took a big lead and kept it and will be moving on to the Semi-Finals! But now that the round is over, you know how it goes. It’s time to discover the Fallen Identities of this past round. Tomorrow will begin the Semi-Finals (which will be even shorter due to an auto-win for the first battle). So check out who didn’t make it and keep wondering who did. Let us know what you think! Below is the final bracket for Round 3. Click to make it bigger.

ROUND 3 – THE FALLEN

Battle #1 – Macaulay Connor
The fourth round kicked off with a pretty good start. The battle was Amelie, and Macaulay Connor fought through Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time to meet his fate here against Your Accomplice in the Wood Chipper. There were 44 total votes with a percentage of 27% to 72%. Connor was none other than… Andrew Kendall from Encore Entertainment.
Battle #2 – Dr. Richard Thornton/The Honorary Swede
I’m not going to talk about it, and I ask that–please–nobody else does, either. It’s been talked about enough, here and elsewhere. But due to a lot of behind-the-scenes controversy, both gentlemen found it was best to drop out and leave no winner this round. Besides this battle, which was for Far and Away, Swede also reviewed Quick and the Dead and Grave of the Fireflies, while Thornton reviewed City Lights and Citizen Kane. The Honorary Swede was Martin Teller of Martin Teller’s Movie Reviews and Dr. Richard Thornton was Jason Soto of Invasion of the B-Movies.
Battle #3 – Kasper Gutman
Based on comments in their respective former battles, Kasper Gutman and Fox Mulder were considered by many as two of the strongest reviewers in this tournament, and I figured this would be a much grander battle than it turned out to be. And, arguably, it deserved more respect than it got with only 20 votes–the lowest of the entire tournament thus far. But Kasper–who made it this far with Brazil and City of God–tapped out with a 25% to 75% loss. Kasper Gutman is none other than… Steve Honeywell of 1001plus.
Battle #4 – Henry Swanson
Finally, we ended the round with reviews of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Zelda’s Kid Sister faced off against Henry Swanson, and with 22 total votes, Swanson took the loss 31% to 68%. He made it this far with Singin’ in the Rain and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. And it’s rather impressive considering he doesn’t typically focus on reviews on his blog. Henry Swanson is Sir Phobos from Green People Soup.
