Feature Presentation Tournament: Cable Television Region

The final week of the regionals have come upon us and we are plowing straight into the Cable Television part of the Feature Presentaion Tournament.  We had an upset in the HBO Play In and now it looks to compete with mostly pay for cable television stations.  Yeah TCM is up in the mix but it’s only half pay for.  At least until we go full a la carte or just free across the board.  It’ll be awhile before that happens but this region is happening now:

SHOWTIME promos feature presentation

It’s kind of an 80s feel with the clips and then it rolls into more of a 90s feel with the graphics and the music.  It’s a good mix of kitschy playfulness and uber professionalism.  The only thing that lacks a bit is the music.  The music starts out cool but then it goes off in some kind of cheesy school ground sound.  But hey, it finds that middle ground.

This feature presentation looks like it’s a feature presentation that actually had feature presentation in the title.  Notwithstanding, this little ditty features the biggest build up we’ve seen all tournament.  But once it hits, we get the full fanfare and a faux movie theater complete with spinning spotlights.  This one is all about the long play and payoff folks.

Cinemax Intro

Cinemax wasn’t going to be outdone by the other channels period piece of a feature presentation.  By period we mean the 1980’s, not the 1880’s, and more like the late 80’s at that.  The graphics display a style no longer seen today.   The music is super generic and gets the point across.  The palette spelling out Cinemax Movie is a real nice touch.

HBO – Classic 1987 Feature Presentation Intro

Yes, it had the major upset in the HBO Play In, now it’s on to see if it beats the other cable television networks.  The music stands out the best across the competition.  What can we say?  We love the hard rocking guitar.  It’s not classical like the other entries, but it has a style we don’t see much in this region.  That said, the graphics are a bit too lazery, aren’t they?

There you have it, folks.  We got some strong competition rounding out the cable television region.  Get your votes on and get it going strong as well.  We’ll have one more final four once y’all pick a winner.   Watch the clips, read the reviews, and click away!

This week’s region takes us back to the movie studios.   After theaters tout their stuff, you usually get movie studios doing the same thing.  There’s a grand history of movie studio fanfare and we feel like we captured all the right candidates.  The bad boys of the studios, Disney, are back but they have some stiff competition.  Let’s take a look: Continue reading

Gonzo Guys HBO Play In

Feature Presentation Tournament: HBO Play In Winner!

We have a winner in the HBO Play In and it’s a major upset!  The HBO – Classic 1987 Feature Presentation Intro made it out alive in the bracket.  The old early 80’s feature presentation was a clear favorite and an almost certain shoe in to advance.  It seems the votes came strong for the rocking guitar instead of the orchestration provided in the favorite.  Now personally, I would’ve gone with the old 80’s version since it started the whole tournament.  The people have spoken (and may have gamed the votes).  That’s democracy for ya, so 1987 moves forward!
