FCW Insider: March (government movie) Madness results... and they continue


For those of you just joining us -- where have you been? -- we are continuing FCW's March (government movie) Madness with a March Madness bracket approach to determining the best government-themed movie.
We are still in the first round. Previous winners have included The American President, Air Force One, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

On Friday, we finished up the second bout of battles. The results: 

 * Enemy of the State (52 percent) defeated No Way Out (48 percent)


War Games (89) easily blew past Mars Attacks (11)


The Good Shepherd (55) defeated Breach (45)


See how they all line up in the bracket, which can be found at the bottom of this page.

And... on with the next three competitions:

* JFK (1992) vs Nixon (1995)
*
Absolute Power (1996) vs In the Line of Fire (1993)
* The Bourne movies vs the Jack Ryan movies

Again, vote for your favorites at fcw.com/polls. We'll close this round mid-day Wednesday. (The previous polls remain open -- what can I say. It's our polling software -- but we're not including further votes.)


We'll be keeping the brackets updated as the battles continue.

(An aside... Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama posts his March Madness brackets on his blog. Nice touch.)
