    SYTYCR: The Final Fallen + The Winner!

    I’m not going to waste any time. The end of the tournament has finally come. It’s had its ups and downs, fun times and stressful times. After 2 months of insanity, it has finally come to an end. I’m gonna go die now or something. Anyway, the final bracket is below. Click to make it bigger. ————————- If you weren’t aware, all the other identities have long-since been...

    SYTYCR Round 4.1: Your Accomplice In The Wood Chipper (MAN ON WIRE)

    It’s time for the semi-finals! There are only two battles this round. Well, one, technically. This post isn’t really a battle as much as a solo review due to no opponent. Like every other time this has happened, this post would normally just be up for a day before the next one went up. However, since weekend votes are always the lowest–and this is an American holiday weekend on top of that–this one will be newest just...

    SYTYCR Round 3: The Fallen Identities

    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...

    SYTYCR Round 3.4: Zelda’s Kid Sister VS. Henry Swanson (HP – SORCERER’S STONE)

    What great reviews that last battle, huh? Congrats goes out to Fox Mulder, who moves on to the next round. But now it’s time for the final battle of Round 3! This next battle sees Zelda’s Kid Sister, who made it this far with her reviews of Eraserhead and The Exorcist. She faces off against Henry Swanson, who got here with Singin’ in the Rain and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Today they take on...

    SYTYCR Round 2: The Fallen Identities

    In the last couple hours, there was an influx in votes and Hayley almost took the win. But in the end, that went to Henry Swanson, who will be moving on to the next round. Congrats! Now Round 2 is over and, like in Round 1, it’s time to announce the identities of the Round 2 fallen. And tomorrow we will begin Round 3, which should only last about a week! So sit back, relax, and comment your reactions to those who are no longer in the...

    SYTYCR Round 2.8: Hayley VS. Henry Swanson (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON)

    Finally got some more good voting and commenting! I don’t know if it was the controversy of the review or me threatening to discontinue the tournament… but either way, keep it up! And congrats to Zelda’s Kid Sister for winning and moving on to the next round! Now it’s time for the final battle of Round 2! We have Hayley, who won the first round with her review of The Room, facing off against Henry Swanson, who...

    SYTYCR Round 2.7: Zelda’s Kid Sister VS. Falkor (THE EXORCIST)

    If we can’t get the voting back up to what it was before (though potentially without cheating), there might not be a version two of this down the road. Anyway, congrats to Kasper Gutman who won the battle and will be moving on to the third round! The next round has Zelda’s Kid Sister, who won in Round 1 with her review of Eraserhead, battling against Falkor, who moved through automatically, despite his incredibly...

    SYTYCR Round 2.6: Pinocchio_Liez VS. Kasper Gutman (CITY OF GOD)

    I suppose that’s better than last time, but still really low–especially in comparison to the first two battles of this round (Hell, they’re both low even by Round 1 voting standards). Anyone care to share some thoughts as to why such a drastic decline in votes lately? Anyway, congrats on Fox Mulder for knocking that one out of the park. He’ll be moving on to the next round. Congrats! This battle will see...

    SYTYCR Round 2.5: Fox Mulder VS. Eyes Wide Open (DIE HARD)

    What happened? Voting was low even by Round 1 standards. Was it the weekend? Hopefully things will pick up again. Well, congrats to The Honorary Swede who will be moving on to the next round. This battle will see Fox Mulder, who won the first round with his review of Rope, face off against Eyes Wide Open, who won his first round battle with his review of Maid in Manhattan. And what a transition, for today’s review battle...

    SYTYCR Round 2.4: The Honorary Swede VS. Botch Casually (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES)

    Alright, moving on to the next actual battle. Today, we’re looking at the most depressing animated film ever made, Grave of the Fireflies. In this battle is The Honorary Swede, who took the first round in his review The Quick and the Dead. Against him is Botch Casually, who won his first battle with another animated film, The Little Mermaid (Note: funnily enough, both winners of the Round 1 animated film reviews...
