This week we have yet another winner at the ole Feature Presentation Tournament bracket. This time it comes from the Movie Theater region. The AMC Theatres Feature Presentation Trailer (2003) blew up the AMC Play In and now it’s going on to the final four. Really, it’s all about the class and playfulness and frankly the other ones just didn’t have the charm. Check out the results here. Tune in later as we hit up the final region before the final four busts through.
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 Feature Presentation Tournament: Movie Studio Region→
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!
This is the one that started this wacky idea. We we running our mouths on another epidose and had to re-live our love for HBO’s Feature Presentation. So after researching some more on this guy, we discovered that we needed a play in just for HBO. This is what you see before your eyes today. Let’s do this: Continue reading Feature Presentation Tournament: HBO Play In→
Yup, we have another winner and this time it’s over on the Disney side of things. The Disney Rare Feature Presentation ID takes home in this one. Yeah it’s a tie breaker, and yes I just broke it. It’s much like how Disney breaks our will and soul every day. And oh doe we enjoy it. Here’s the results. Take another look a this beauty:
Update time! We have our first winner! In a near landslide victory the General Cinema Corporation‘s 1977 Feature Presentation bumper is the first to advance in our Feature Presentation Tournament! It’s weird, it’s bleepy, and it’s down right puzzling. Perfect for the Gonzo Guys and they have moved on to the Wild Card Region. Check out the survey results if you are bored. Remember to vote for the Disney Play In and look for the next Play In tomorrow!
The Feature Presentation bracket is in full swing and this time we take a stroll down family entertainment lane. Disney is synonymous with the family as it’s taken over not only the stories that kids love, but also the stories that we as adults loved as kids (I’m looking at you Marvel and Star Wars). So it makes sense to have some sort of grand, boisterous intro into each carefully manufactured piece of family propaganda. It was hard to whittle it down but we have four that really show’s Disney’s teeth, and by teeth we mean fangs, and by fangs we mean soul vampire.

First up on the Feature Presentation Tournament is the Wild Card Play-In. Yes we found some easily identifiable groups to toss the others in, but there were some that were so good that didn’t fit into categories. So we dumped them in here. We found enough that we also decided to have a Play-In for them too. Let’s take a look at them: Continue reading Feature Presentation Tournament: Wild Card Play In→
It’s the Gonzo Guys in text form! We were kids growing up remembering all the intros while getting into seats of movie theaters or the couches of our living rooms. Today it doesn’t seem as impactful. There was a golden age of great movie bumpers and we both think it’s gone. So in celebration of all great bumpers of the past, we are doing a bracket tournament!
