Movies of 1985 Bracket Game: Brazil Vs. Back to the Future
With the start of a new year, there’s a whole new slate of movies to look forward to. Hollywood is hoping 2015 will be a better year at the movies than 2014 was. But how will the movies of the new year stack up against the movies from 30 years ago? 1985 gave us some classic movies and its share of forgettable ones as well. In this month’s bracket game we’re going back in time to 1985 to pick our favorites from 30 years ago!
This was unexpected. Brazil, the quirky science fiction movie championed by critics and ignored by everyone else 30 years ago, has advanced to the finals over the ultimate high school drama, The Breakfast Club. Was the voting entirely on the up-and-up? Well, there were more votes cast in this poll than in any round for the last two games. That always makes me a bit suspicious. So maybe put an asterisk next to this victory.
Regardless of how it happened, our final two movies are Back to the Future and Brazil. Brazil is the clear under-dog here. But it seems to have a very supportive group of voters backing it. Will they be enough to pull the ultimate upset?!? I would bet against it. But then, I would have bet against Brazil making it to the final four much less the finals.
So this is it. Which movie is the ultimate movie from 1985?
