FlipSide: Nearing the Sweet 16

The March (government movie) Madness continues. In recent voting in FCW’s government-themed movie tournament, the Jack Ryan movies edged the Bourne movies, “In the Line of Fire” took out “Absolute Power” and “JFK” trumped “Nixon.”

The first round wraps up this week with some classic matches, such as the original “Manchurian Candidate” versus “Citizen Kane,” “Dick” against “All the President’s Men” and “Apocalypse Now” against “Black Hawk Down.” To cast your vote in these and other match ups, go to www.fcw.com/polls.

Once again, FCW offers a tip of the hat to Mark Reiter and Richard Sandomir, authors of “The Enlightened Bracketologist: The Final Four of Everything.”
