Welcome everyone. I’m Christopher DeFilippis and this is DeFlip Side.
And the time has come for DeFlip Side’s 2015 Sci-Fi Madness tournament.
This year your favorite genre characters are throwing down in our Movie Hero Melee—where 64 fantastic film icons will vie for supremacy in six punishing rounds of competition. The four divisions fighting it out in 2015 are The Good Guys, The Rogues, The Bad Asses and The Rebels.
Which bad ass will kick more ass? Ripley or Riddick? Batman or Blade? Does true-blue Captain America have what it takes to beat the ultimate Good Guy, Superman? Who will dominate in a roster of rogues that includes the likes of Han Solo, Wolverine, Indiana Jones and Zaphod Beeblebrox? Or will Dr. Peter Venkman smarm his way to victory?
To get this year’s competition off to a rousing start, we have an epic first-round battle between Captain Kirk and Captain Picard. Which of these Starfleet Good Guys will win the day?
You decide! Vote in the Round One right now, and check back frequently to track the results and watch the countdown to the next round of competition. You can also follow the tournament and get updates and reminders on our Facebook and Twitter pages. And while you’re at it, retweet us, and share our Facebook posts. Tell all the geeks you know! The more people participate, the crazier the competition!
Late game fan rallies caused a string of upsets in last year’s March Madness, where Star Wars was ultimately crowned as top film franchise. But something tells me rebel alliance golden boy Luke Skywalker will have to swing his lightsaber pretty fast this year to deflect the righteous arrows of Katniss Everdeen.
Who will be proclaimed the ultimate Movie Hero? The choice is yours in DeFlip Side’s Sci-Fi Madness!
Vote in Round 1!
