South Division Match: 6 Benedict vs 11 Jaws.
« on: June 14, 2013, 12:36:16 PM »
6th Seed: Benedict. Film: Last Action Hero.

A henchman--or lackey, as he describes himself--for a disreputable Italian mob boss, Benedict has perfect aim and truly is the smartest man in the room and is never afraid of showing it off.

Villainous Moment: To prove a theory to himself, Benedict shoots a car mechanic in cold blood to find out how long it takes for someone to scream or call the police.



11th Seed: Jaws. Film: Jaws.

A great white shark with the taste for human flesh, Jaws goes out of its way to kill people in the beach resort town of Amity until a shark hunter, Quint, says he'll take the shark down for the right price.

Villainous Moment: Jaws literally jumps out of the water onto the back of the boat and devours Quint as he tries to beat Jaws away to no avail.

As a child of the 70s, it wouldn't be right if I didn't vote for Jaws.

I think this has to be the hardest one so far. I love both of them. I think I'm going to skip out on this vote...

What was it Jules said in Pulp Fiction, "Personality goes a long way"? A shark that actually hunts people down is cool, but Benedict's evil personality triumphs here.

Benedict is just a more interesting characters than Jaws. It's a shame he was wasted on a spoof.
Why don't we just...wait here for a little while...see what happens?

Benedict defeated Jaws. He will play Anton Chigurh next round.
