What are unloved movie masterpieces? Well, they are the films that get rated the lowest by critics and audiences. Sometimes they can be downright bad, other times they are simply very challenging.
Who better to join this very first English movie draft on Thumb Wrestling, than two avid defenders of movies that have received too little praise in the past. Veteran podguests Theodoor Steen and Ashley Walker return, to shine a new bright light on titles that can use all the love they can get.
So, after we've all made selections, our lists look like this:
VOTING HAS CLOSED! You are too late. Here are the results:
And to get to these lists, we played a movie draft!
The game: three candidates pick a movie one by one. Six categories must be filled, and each movie can be selected only once in the whole game. Also, after every round of picks, we reverse the order in which we can choose a movie. The objective is to get the best list together of six movies.
Who do you think made the best picks?
