Movie Madness

Congratulations To Apollo 13

The tournament has come to an end and Apollo 13 has claimed the title! Thanks to all of the participants that voted throughout the past several weeks of Movie Madness. We had a tremendous response from the community and hope that all of you had fun voting for your favorite engineering films.

Congratulations to the Top 20 Points Leaders (below) as well. For the last five weeks these readers voted for their favorite films and accumulated more points than any of the competition. We hope you enjoy the great prizes that we will be sending you in the coming weeks.

Apollo 13 Wins The Championship
Apollo 13 Wins the championship
Apollo 13 had a great run in the tournament, dominating every single opponent along the way. The film easily took down fan-favorites like Flight of the Phoenix and Bridge on the River Kwai. The fearless astronauts and lightning fast thinking crew of the Apollo 13 certainly do exemplify engineering and inventiveness at their best. Looking back at the results from each week, it is clear that Apollo 13 deserves to be named The World's Greatest Engineering Movie!

How does this Bracket Madness stuff work anyhow?

Each week we will ask you to decide which engineering films move to the next round. In order to participate all you have to do is check back each week and vote on the current round that is open for voting.

Each round, films will be declared a winner by the majority reader-vote and move on to the next round for future voting. Each time your vote falls into the majority reader-vote you accumulate points. As the rounds continue, the amount of points for each correct vote increase (see Schedule & Points below).

At the end of the contest, the participants with the highest total points accumulated are eligible winners. For the best chance to win, we suggest voting in all of the rounds!

All participants are welcome and encouraged! However, if you would like a chance at winning some of the great prizes listed below then we need to know who you are. At the end of each voting session please list your contact information. This is important for us to keep track of your points week after week, so please enter the same information each voting session!
