The second round is done! Let’s see where we stand at the moment. It’s the Sweet Sixteen baby!
Onto the match-ups!
#52 The Little Giants vs. #4 Aladdin
Rob: That’s tough for the Giants.
Chris: You got to go with Aladdin.
Dan: Me too, though if Aladdin came out right now, I don’t know if I would like it.
Chris: It holds up. The songs are good and Robin Williams as the genie was great.
Mike: Did they just let Robin Williams improv his lines?
Chris: It seems like it.
#5 Beauty and the Beast vs. #22 Cool Runnings
Mike: Sorry Cool Runnings!
Chris: Cool Runnings had a good run.
Dan: It got to the second week at least.
Winner: Beauty and the Beast
#3 The Lion King vs. #51 The Mighty Ducks
Mike: I think The Lion King is funnier.
Chris: The Lion King is a better movie in general, but as a kid I personally enjoyed The Mighty Ducks more. I watched it all the time.
Dan: That’s the same thing for me with The Sandlot.
Chris: I’m going with The Mighty Ducks.
Mike: I’m picking The Lion King. I was a huge Timon and Pumba fan!
Rob: You have to see The Lion King 1 ½ then.
Winner: The Lion King
#2 Toy Story 2 vs. #15 Home Alone
Mike: This is a very tough match-up.
Dan: I’m going with Toy Story 2, since it’s funnier and more heart-warming.
Chris: Home Alone is one of my favorite movies.
Rob: I do love Home Alone, but I only watch it during the holidays. Toy Story 2 I could watch all year round.
Dan: Toy Story 2 I actually bought on Blu Ray when it came out. It’s kind of the Rushmore of the ‘90s.
Mike: I do like Home Alone 2 better than Home Alone, so I’m going with Toy Story.
Winner: Toy Story 2
#40 Rookie of the Year vs. #9 The Mask
Mike: It’s hard to compare these two movies.
Dan: It’s hard for me to explain why I love The Mask so much, but I’m voting for The Mask.
Chris: This is weird because Rookie of the Year is like the low-level kids baseball movies, and The Mask is like the low-level of Jim Carey movies. But I think I like Rookie of the Year better.
Rob: I like Rookie of the Year a lot.
Mike: I’m going with Rookie of the Year too.
Dan: This is a travesty!
Winner: Rookie of the Year
#12 Mulan vs. #5 Jurassic Park
Mike: Jurassic Park moves on. Let’s go.
Rob: It’s tough to argue with that.
(Mike sings the Jurassic Park theme song)
Winner: Jurassic Park
#10 The Santa Clause vs. #7 A Bug’s Life
Rob: I feel like A Bug’s Life has just been holding on until now.
Dan: It’s solid, but it’s not beating The Santa Clause.
Winner: The Santa Clause
#16 The Addams Family vs. #1 Toy Story
Dan: Sweep it!
Winner: Toy Story
