March Movie Badass Madness

I have something very special planned for the month of March. It started with a voicemail I got from my brother. He asked me to do a subjective argument for which actor was more badass, Kurt Russell or Patrick Swayze. He wanted it to include their movie history and their personal life. His idea was great but it was a little too small. I texted him back with my idea. Next month I will be doing a bracket of movie badasses.

I'm culling through a list of movie stars whose careers have been action movie oriented. I'm slowly working through the large list of A, B and at sometimes C-list movie stars and I'm going to have a 16 actor bracket. Some names that would normally be consider may be dropped outright based on their personally issues tipping the scale against their favor, Mel Gibson comes to mind. Over the month I'm going whittle the actors down to the top two most badass actors around.

Now, here's how I plan to do it.

  • The actors are going to be given an aggregated score based on Rotten Tomatoes movie ratings.
  • Then I'm going to give a point/counterpoint of each actor.
  • The person with the better RT score and best pro to con ratio will win the round and move up in the bracket.
  • If there is a tie I will render the decision based on the RT score of the two actors most recent movie.
I will have a bracket made up before the end of the month so you make you own decisions as to who should be the most badass movie actor around.

I'm open to any and all suggestions as to who should be included in the bracket.
